Impact Wrestling featured a surprise Tag Team Title change this week as Rhino cashed in his Call Your Shot contract for a title match. It didn’t take much time for Rhino and Joe Doering to win those titles. This came after FinnJuice had already successfully defended their titles.
According to Fightful Select, David Finlay and Juice Robinson weren’t at the last set of Impact Wrestling television tapings. They were not figured into the company’s creative plans as well.
Just because FinnJuice went back to Japan doesn’t mean that the deal between NJPW and Impact Wrestling is over. It is reported that there is still a positive working relationship between the two sides.
There is still a positive working relationship with NJPW and we’re likely to see a stream of wrestlers pop up in IMPACT.
We will have to see what happens next with Impact and NJPW’s working arrangement. They could set up a lot of surprising matches. Only time will tell who they are able to get to make the trip.
As we previously noted, NJPW talent are growing frustrated about the pandemic situation in Japan. The country requires a mandatory quarantine time prior to entering and that makes traveling to and from very troublesome.
