IMPACT Wrestling has just announced that Ace Austin will be replacing Ken Shamrock in the current No. 1-contender tournament for the IMPACT World Title. Austin will meet Rhino in a first-round matchup that will air on tomorrow’s episode of IMPACT. Shamrock’s removal comes from his storyline injury at the hands of an attack by Michael Elgin.
