IMPACT Wrestling officially recognizes TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Impact now has two active world titles.
On last nights episode of IMPACT, the promotion officially recognised the TNA World Heavyweight Championship once again, thus making it an official title belt within the brand and forcing Moose to defend it.
After the tables match between Jake Something and Deaner, Moose had come down to the ring and began an assault on Something in efforts to force IMPACT's hand and give him an IMPACT World Championship match. This wasn't to be as Moose was told that IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann wasn't even in the building, but in a shocking twist, acknowledged the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Scott D'Amore - Vice president of IMPACT, had this to say:
“Moose, you have all the talent in the world and you’re content to piss it away. You want a world title match tonight? Fine! You’ve got a world title match,” he said. “Y’know why? Because for almost a year I’ve watched you walk around here carrying that TNA World Heavyweight Championship. A championship that means a whole hell of a lot to me. A championship for a company in TNA that I helped build. So, you’ve got your dream, Moose. From this very second on, I’m making the TNA World Heavyweight Championship an official title here in IMPACT. And tonight, Moose, in the main event you’re going to defend that title against Jake Something. Congratulations, champ. You’ve got a title match!”
Moose had declared himself TNA World Heavyweight Champion in early 2020 but IMPACT had never officially recognised this as a title.
