Big Kon, formerly Konnor of NXT fame, has debuted for IMPACT Wrestling.

The former NXT Tag Team Champion wrestled during Friday's tapings for the Anthem-helmed promotion in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, wrestling Eddie Edwards in a losing effort in a match that was taped for the company's Before The IMPACT show. Expect this to air over the coming weeks on IMPACT's social media channels.

This marked just the fourth televised appearance for Big Kon, having previously appeared for National Championship Wrestling, Championship Wrestling From Atlanta, and WrestleCade Entertainment across television and pay-per-view.

Along with Viktor, the Ascension was one of the most pivotal tandems in the development of NXT's early days, with the duo holding the NXT Tag Team Titles for 364 days. Despite this, their tenure on the main roster is best left in the past, with their NXT success effectively forgotten about in favour of them being used as aimless jobbers.

Their final match aired on the 12 April 2019 Main Event broadcast, with a loss to Heavy Machinery. After eight months of inactivity, Konnor and Viktor were released, alongside Sin Cara and the late Luke Harper.

These tapings also saw the returns and debuts of Blake Christian, Santana Garrett, ROH's Kenny King, and Bullet Club's Jay White and the Guerrillas of Destiny.
