A little over a year ago, I got my first look at Ace Austin at Paradigm Pro Wrestling. Every time I’ve seen him in person, he’s only gotten better.
Ace is another wrestler based out of Dayton, Ohio, part of the core now at Impact that includes oVe and the Rascalz. He’s a dazzling superstar in the making and a great get for my weekly Friday night wrestling fix.
Huge congrats to Ace Austin, and to Impact. Cannot wait to see him on Twitch every week.

Right now, for me, it’s all about Impact and New Japan.
Impact has all my favorite people. Dave Crist, Jake Crist, Jordynne Grace, and the trio known as the Rascalz were faves of mine before they were on TV. I don’t have cable, but I’ve been watching them on Twitch every Friday night since they started streaming live. I hate to see their rating continue to slide because it’s a really, really great wrestling show.
And New Japan is… well, despite some high profile departures, it’s STILL New Japan. Ibushi is staying. Jay is the new IWGP Champ. And there are these two guys named Naito and Okada still there who are arguably among the best in the world.
Whatever you’re watching, I hope you’re watching to enjoy, not to complain. If you don’t like what’s on one show, turn it off. You have alternatives everywhere now.
I’ll be watching New Japan on the treadmill, and I’ll be on Twitch Friday evenings watching Impact. If you haven’t seen Impact in a while, I really hope you’ll give it a chance.
