The Watch List takes a look at what matches you should be watching while you’re at home and they come recommended by your favorite professional wrestling stars.
WrestleZone recently spoke with new IMPACT Wrestling X Division Champion Willie Mack, who won the title from Ace Austin on night one of the Rebellion special. Despite only holding the title for a short time, Mack was asked if he had thought about having the power to use ‘Option C’ and cash it in for a World Championship opportunity. Mack says he likes being champion right now and it could result in him without any titles, but didn’t completely write off the idea in the future.
“I don’t know. I just got the X Division title and I like having the title. Plus, you have to give it up to get a shot at the World Title, and that might end up backfiring. You could end up titleless in the end, which would suck. But hey, who knows?”
Stay tuned for our full interview with Willie Mack where we talk about his title win, adjusting to performing in front of an empty arena, his experience with cinematic wrestling, Chris Bey as a challenger in the X Division and much more.
We added some recommendations to the list and selected a good mix of bouts from Mack’s career, including highlights from his X Division title win and full-length matches Mack picked, with some insight from the champ himself.
