Nick Aldis Vs Kenny King, No DQ Stipulation Added To Impact Under Siege

Upon his return to Impact Wrestling last month, Nick Aldis quickly set his sights on the company's top prize — the Impact World Championship. Before he steps into any title picture though, Aldis vowed that he wanted to earn it first. As such, the next obstacle in Aldis' title pursuit is former X-Division Champion Kenny King at the Under Siege pay-per-view on May 26.

During Thursday's edition of "Impact Wrestling," Aldis laced up his boots to compete in his first Impact singles match in six years. There, he battled Sheldon Jean as King sat behind the commentary desk. Last week, King sparked a conflict when he claimed that Aldis was aiming to skip to the front of the contenders' line. Following Aldis' victory against Jean, he pivoted his focus back to King.

While "The National Treasure" looks to climb his way up the ladder and defeat King, Steve Maclin — the reigning Impact World Champion — gears up for a title defense against PCO at Under Siege, in what is now a No Disqualification Match. After capturing the Impact World Championship at Rebellion, Maclin was put to the test against Rhino in his first official title defense. Rhino put up a valiant effort against the current champ last night, but in the end, it just wasn't enough to dethrone the titleholder.

Under Siege will take place in London, Ontario, Canada. In addition to the two previously mentioned contests, Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo defends her title against Jordynne Grace, and the recently-debuted Trinity has an open contract out for someone to take for a match at the pay-per-view.
