Kicking off tonight’s IMPACT Wrestling programming from Atlanta, Georgia was Georgia’s own Alan Angels making his debut against ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey. Angels was unsuccessful in his attempt to become X Division Champion, but he and Bailey shook each hands afterwards. As they were showing sportsmanship, they were ambushed by Violent By Design’s Deaner and Joe Doering.
