Steve Maclin’s first title defense as Impact Wrestling World Champion will be against wrestling veteran PCO, it has been announced.
Maclin won the title at the recent Rebellion pay-per-view event, defeating KUSHIDA to win the gold which had been vacated by Josh Alexander.
During this week’s episode of IMPACT! on AXS TV, Maclin got into a heated exchange with Impact President Scott D’Amore, who announced PCO as Maclin’s next opponent.
PCO came out, hit a DDT, and put some security guards through a table before staring down with Maclin.
PCO also emerged victorious at Impact’s Rebellion event as he defeated Eddie Edwards in a Last Rites match on the show.
