Matt Cardona is your new Impact Wrestling Digital Media Champion. Last night’s Impact TV tapings in Pembroke Pines, Florida saw Cardona capture the title from Jordynne Grace.
According to correspondents in attendance, Cardona hesitated to perform his moves on Grace until he snapped at one point, turning heel and hitting her with a Reboot. Grace kicked out but Cardona kept control and tried to hit her with a belt shot. The referee was distracted, which allowed Cardona to hit Grace with a steel chair. He then finished her off with Radio Silence for the win. After the match, Cardona posed on the ramp and flipped the crowd off to end the segment.
Grace became the inaugural Impact Digital Media Champion back at Bound For Glory on October 23, defeating Chelsea Green, Fallah Bahh, John Skyler, Crazzy Steve, and Madison Rayne in a tournament final Six-Way match. Since then she has retained over Skyler, Green and Lady Frost on Impact programming. She also retained over Kiera Hogan at the first-ever Terminus event last weekend. This is Cardona’s first title reign of any kind in Impact.
