Lucha Underground star Pentagon Jr. is the new Impact World Champion following the main event of Sunday night’s Redemption pay-per-view.
Pentagon picked up the surprise victory over Fenix and Austin Aries after he hit Aries with a Pentagon Driver.
The title switch is unexpected since Pentagon has not been featured on Impact’s weekly television show. Plus, it appears as though he’s only working for the company under their agreement with Lucha Underground.
Following the show, Pentagon and Aries tweeted the following:
