IMPACT on AXS notes: Monster's Ball X Division Title bout, Barry Horowitz gets win, KISS Demon appears

Originally published at

After weeks of back and forth between the two parties, Crazzy Steve and IMPACT X Division Champion Trey Miguel will clash in a Monster’s Ball match on the 2/23 IMPACT on AXS. 

Johnny Swinger has been determined to secure 50 wins in order to get a world title match. He suffered a loss on tonight’s program to Barry Horowitz. Their match also featured an appearance from KISS Demon a.k.a. Dale Torborg. 

After Barry’s victory, he approached Santino Marella and asked for the same deal as Swinger. If he can secure 50 wins, he’ll get a title match. Horowitz opted not to go through with the offer when he found out he’d be facing Rhino next.
