Willie Mack replaced in Ultimate X at Multiverse of Matches

Mar 29, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

Impact Wrestling has made another change to Ultimate X at Friday’s Multiverse of Matches event.

It was announced today that Blake Christian will replace Willie Mack in the match. There’s no word yet on why Impact has pulled Mack, but we will keep you updated.

Christian made his Impact debut back at All Glory in October 2019, but then worked several matches in early 2021. He returned in January of this year for a loss to Laredo Kid on Before The Impact, and then worked a Triple Threat with Kid and Austin, the winner, on Impact in mid-February.

Impact announced last week that Mike Bailey was being pulled from the match, and replaced by Chris Bey. Bailey was added to a singles match with Alex Shelley. Mack has not been added to another match on the card as of this writing.

The Ultimate X match will now see Trey Miguel defend the X Division Title against Bey, Christian, Vincent, Rich Swann, and Jordynne Grace. The winner will go on to defend the title in a Triple Threat against Bailey and Ace Austin at the Impact Rebellion pay-per-view on April 23 in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Impact’s Multiverse of Matches show at WrestleCon will take place this Friday, April 1 at 9pm ET from the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, TX. It will air live on FITE TV. Impact will then present a midnight show featuring the throwback-style IPWF (Impact Provincial Wrestling Federation) brand.

    I think Rich Swann will get pulled next and Swann and Mack will be part of VBD’s title defense … although it could very well be Rebellion…anyhow, I read some place that Impact were doing an 8 team gauntlet for the gold type match for the #1 contendership to the Impact World Tag Titles currently held by Eric Young and Joe Doering of Violent by Design or VBD….I’d imagine the OGK from Honor No More will also be part of the match….unless it was signed for Rebellion..in which case I have no idea then.

    Scheduled for just after Multiverse is an Impact Provincial Wrestling Federation or IPWF card and Downtown Daddy Brown usually always performs on those shows…. Downtown Daddy Brown is of course Willie Mack.
