Impact Wrestling has some momentum after their latest pay-per-view offering. Hard to Kill saw a surprise invasion by stars from Ring of Honor. Now the company has lost one of their titles to an Impact Knockout. Mickie James is appearing in the WWE Royal Rumble. It truly is a strange time to be a wrestling fan.
