2020 Resolution – X Division Championship – Willie Mack vs. Ace Austin (c)
Willie Mack’s New Year’s resolution was to keep wrestling, see the world, and keep doing what he’s doing.
Back in the studio, Scott told Josh his resolution is to be nice to him… Not! And Josh pointed out that was Scott’s resolution last year.
Next we head into a video package highlighting the 2020’s Rebellion match between Willie Mack vs. Ace Austin To end the match, Mack climbs to the top rope. Austin rolls away. Mack instead flies across the ring with a Coast-to-Coast. Mack heads to the top again. He flops down with what would have been a six-star frog splash, but Austin moves out of the way in time. Austin turns Mack around and goes for a pin. The referee notices Austin put his feet up on the middle rope and stops the count. Austin and Mack meet at the second and top rope. Austin slips under. Mack flies high and on top of Austin with the six-star frog splash. Mack covers right away, and becomes the new X-Division Champion!
