The following report contains major SPOILERS for upcoming episodes of Impact Wrestling television, following the first two days of TV tapings in Las Vegas.
As previously reported, Brian Cage has opted to exercise the old “Option C” clause in order to “cash in” his X-Division Champion for an opportunity at the Impact World Championship. The match will go down on January 6th at Impact Homecoming, live on pay-per-view.
