Former World Champion Eddie Edwards attacked at the end of last week’s show, but who is responsible?
Josh Matthews and Madison Rayne welcome us to another week of Impact Wrestling then we go straight to opening Knockouts tag team match.
Rosemary and Taya Valkyrie def. Neveah and Havok
Havok and Taya started the match for their teams with the Death machine taking the momentum for the first few minutes of the match that was until Taya managed to make the tag to her partner Rosemary. The Demon Assassin swung the momentum back in the favour of her team as she took it to Neveah, several tags would be made throughout the duration of the match but the finish would come after Rosemary and Valkyrie celebrated a little prematurely as Neveah would deliver a big German suplex to Rosemary but before she could do the same to Taya, Wera Loca drilled Neveah with the Road to Valhalla and would pick up the win for her team.
There wouldn’t be much time to celebrate as the team of Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz would jump both Taya and Rosemary and attack them before being saved by their opponents Havok and Neveah.
We then head backstage where the Good Brothers (Gallows and Anderson) are sharing a story with some of the security guards but are interrupted by the tag team champions Motor City Machine Guns (Shelley and Sabin) who make a few jokes based on the fact the Good Brothers haven’t had too many matches since their debut in impact. The Good Brothers return the favour by mocking the finishing move of the champions.
We’re then treated to a backstage interview with the Knockouts champion Deonna Purrazzo who is discussing her Bound For Glory opponent Kylie Rae. She is then informed by interviewer Gia Miller that she will be facing SÜSIE at the upcoming Impact + special victory Road for the Knockouts Championship this Saturday.
Jordynne Grace def. Tenille via Tap Out
Accompanied by Kaleb with a K, Tenille Dashwood seemed extremely confident because of her victory of the former Champion Grace last week on Impact. Dashwood would take control for most of the match and once again seemed to be able to avoid the Grace driver. But Grace would get some momentum and had a hold of Dashwood in the Grace driver position, but Kaleb with a K would earn his money as he managed to distract Grace and would draw her over to him leaving Dashwood to take advantage and once again roll her up but Grace would reverse it and put Dashwood in a Cochina Clutch leaving Dashwood with no option other than to tap out.
We head backstage once again and we see a very frustrated Moose searching for EC3 and his TNA World Championship, he is pointed in the direction of EC3s locker room but only finds an employee of impact. Then Ec3 appears projected on the wall and warns Moose that next week on Impact will be the funeral of the TNA World Championship.
We then get an update on the recovery of the challenger for the World Championship at Bound for Glory, Rich Swann who lets everyone know that he has never worked harder and will be the impact world champion at Bound for Glory.
We head outside of the IMPACT zone to Heath who is met by Rhino as Heath reveals that he didn’t actually use the money that they had stolen from Hernandez, the pair are then jumped by Reno Scum who take the money back and give it to Hernandez.
Rhino heads back into the building and goes straight to Scott D’amore, he demands a match for himself and Heath against Reno Scum which D’amore begrudgingly agrees to but only if Heath agrees to the non sanctioned stipulation. That match is scheduled for Victory Road special this Saturday on the Impact +app.
Good Brothers are def. Rascalz (Dez and Wentz)
After the entrances from both teams the Good Brothers seem to take the momentum almost immediately, the Rascalz put up a good fight and get some good shots into the point where they’re able to deliver their Finisher but is unfortunately blocked by Karl Anderson. The Rascalz don’t let it distract them as they both attempt dives to take out the Big LG Doc Gallows, who catches Dez and sends him flying into his own partner (Wentz). Gallows with ease throws Dez back into the ring to Anderson, they pick him up and swiftly put Dez away with the magic Killer fit for the victory.
Straight after the match Anderson and Gallows get a microphone each and they let everyone know that they came to Impact to be tag team champions and they challenge the Motor City Machine Guns to a match at Bound for Glory for the tag team titles.
We’re once again backstage and in the corridors of the IMPACT zone and we see Brian Myers annoyed that Tommy Dreamer seems to be forgetting their agreement of Tommy walking the other way if they see each other. A brawl seems to be about to start but Myers tells Dreamer to “Be professional”. Dreamer lets him go and tells Myers that they will do it this Saturday on the Impact + app at Victory Road.
Still, backstage Tenille seems to be on her way out until Jordynne Grace appears in front of Tenille and Kaleb, gloating over her victory. But Kaleb with a K does not Impress Tenille as he tells Grace that Dashwood will see her in the ring at Victory Road this Saturday.
Johnny Swinger is def. Fallah Bahh
A match that would decide who would be John E. Bravos best man at his wedding ended almost as quickly as It began. Fallah would have most of the momentum throughout and with Bravo, Cousin Jake, Cody Deaner, Alisha Edwards and Crazzy Steve at ringside it seemed like Fallah would pick up the win until Swinger deliberately stood on the hand of Cody Deaner which got him up on the apron leaving the referee distracted and gave Swinger the opportunity to take Crazzy Steve’s monkey and hit Bahh over the head with it for the win.
John E. Bravo would quickly grab a microphone and lets the referee know Swinger cheated to win, he demands the match be restarted and referee Brandon Tolle obliges.
Fallah Bahh def. Johnny Swinger
Fallah Bahh quickly charges at Swinger in the corner. The swingman falls to mat leaving him in the perfect position for Bahh to deliver his signature seated drop from the middle rope and Fallah Bahh picks up the victory.
Once again we are backstage at the interview set and Gia Miller is joined by the X Division champion Rohit Raju who announces at Victory Road this Saturday will feature the inaugural Defeat Rohit challenge where anyone can come out to challenge the champion. TJP then appears and claims his spot but Raju makes it clear that TJP, Bey and Trey are not eligible to challenge him.
Next up we headed to the ring where Eddie Edwards calls out the person he believes to be responsible for his attack. He calls the name of Eric Young but Sami Callihan is the one who appears, he makes it clear that he did not attack Edwards but Eddie is still looking for a fight so Callihan graciously introduces Eddie to the man who attacked him. The world’s most dangerous man Ken Shamrock appears in the ring and once again attacks the former world champion.
After witnessing the brutal attack on the former world champion we see the current world champion Eric Young sat backstage enjoying the carnage unfolding in front of his eyes and tells Eddie that he’s going to enjoy what he’s going to do to him at Victory Road this Saturday on the Impact +app.
Still backstage and Kylie Rae presents her friend SÜSIE with new kick pads for her upcoming Knockouts Championship match at Victory Road, Kylie gives some encouraging words letting her know that her time has come, we then get another small tease of the potential return of the undead bride.
The North def. Ace Austin and Madman Fulton
The former longest reigning tag team champions The North wanted to teach a lesson in respect to the newly formed team of Ace Austin and Madman Fulton and they seem to be taking control of the match after being dominated by the Mad man in the opening moments of the match. The North do all they can to cut the ring in half so Ace can’t get to his partner. The North decided to take out the mad man leaving them to put an end to the match by taking out the Inevitable Ace Austin with the Northern Assault double team Finisher for the win.
Immediately after the match The Good Brothers come to the ring and get in the face of The North, Ace Austin and Madman Fulton remind both teams that they’re still there and jump both teams. A brawl ensues and the tag team champions can’t help but get involved as the show goes off the air.
