TJP is back in the Impact Zone!
Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJ Perkins made a surprise return to Impact Wrestling this Friday night, answering an open challenge thrown down by Ace Austin, who is on a warpath trying to rebrand the X-Division in his own image.
The 34-year-old wrestling veteran signed with WWE in 2016, and was originally the face of the company’s Cruiserweight relaunch in 2016, winning the 32-man Cruiserweight Classic tournament to become the inaugural champion.
After dropping the title, he slowly sank into obscurity among the rest of the WWE 205 Live roster, until being released from his contract earlier this year.

This is certainly not TJP’s first run with Impact Wrestling. He made sporadic appearances in the X-Division early on in his career including a 20-man gauntlet at the 2004 Victory Road pay-per-view, and a six-man steel cage match at Lockdown 2006.
He came onboard more full-time in 2013, winning the vacant X-Division Championship working under the gimmick known as “Manik”, defending the title against the likes of Chris Sabin, Sonjay Dutt, Eric Young, Jeff Hardy, Austin Aries and Samoa Joe.
