New X Division Champion Crowned At IMPACT Wrestling Emergence Night 1

Chris Bey's reign ends after 31 days...

At night one of Emergence, Kylie Rae went one on one with Taya Valkyrie inside Wrestle House, Moose defended the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Trey and The North tried to reclaim the IMPACT World Tag Team Title from The Motor City Machine Guns. 

A new X Division Champion was also crowned as Chris Bey defended his title against TJP and Rohit Raju. The Desi Hitman was only added to the match after he convinced Bey they could turn the bout into a two-on-one assault against the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion. Much of the match was dominated by this dynamic as TJP tried to fend off both men. This didn't seem to bother The Wrestling Yoda, however, as he came close to capturing the title on a number of occasions, including almost forcing Bey to tap out before Raju stopped his friend's hand from hitting the mat. 

It wasn't meant to be for TJP, however. After he climbed to the top rope to hit a Belly To Back Superplex on the champion, Raju appeared from out of nowhere and tossed The Pinoy Boy from the top rope. This left Bey hanging upside down and Rohit didn't wait long to betray his so-called friend as he suddenly screamed at The Ultimate Finesser and delivered a vicious Double Stomp for the 1-2-3.

With that, Rohit Raju is your new X Division Champion.
