At No Surrender, Impact Wrestling made headlines by teasing a new relationship with New Japan Pro Wrestling in a clip advertising the arrival of Juice Robinson and Dave Finlay. FinJuice appeared tonight on Impact Wrestling to rock the ring. They also stirred up the Good Brothers by insulting Karl Anderson.
FinJuice made their way to the ring to wrestle Reno Scum.

After the victory, the Good Brothers came out to celebrate with the bond of being former NJPW talent. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows weren’t jealous of new boys coming to their territory. They had a little fun ragging on the young boy status of FinJuice back when they were in Japan. Robinson alerted the Good Brothers that times have changed. They aren’t young boys anymore. Finlay then mocked Anderson about passing out from too much booze and being covered in his own urine. Machine Gun was not pleased.
FinJuice weren't too receptive to @The_BigLG and @MachineGunKA's welcoming party. #IMPACTonAXSTV @njpwglobal @THEdavidfinlay pic.twitter.com/rE8VtW60M6— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) February 17, 2021
That didn’t take long for a feud to brew between FinJuice and the Good Brothers. The next Impact special event is likely to be in March, so FinJuice probably won’t have to do too much work to climb up the ladder for a title shot.
Just because Impact has found a new sweetheart in NJPW, that doesn’t mean the AEW relationship is on ice. Tony Khan and Tony Schiavone were back with another paid commercial.

Khan’s forbidden door is open for business. He teased that anybody could show up on Dynamite. Khan also stated that he has a Valentine’s Day present waiting for Kenny Omega on Wednesday night.
Share you thoughts on FinJuice’s appearance in Impact. Are you eager to see FinJuice feud with the Good Brothers? What’s your guess for Tony Khan’s gift to Kenny Omega?
