Before you keep reading please be aware this article is one big spoiler.
Austin Aries was the Impact World Champion until he walked into Redemption and lost his title to Penta O M in a triple threat match which also included Fenix.
But Penta’s title reign didn’t last long at all because he ended up dropping the title a couple short days later when Impact Wrestling filmed their next set of television shows.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted this quick back-and-forth title change was simply to create a surprise and that seems to be it. After all, Austin Aries ended up with his title back by the end of the week anyway.
