The wedding of Rosemary and John E. Bravo took place on the October 27, 2020, edition of Impact Wrestling. Throughout the course of the night, the Impact roster would inform us of how they felt about this wedding by saying “I have a bad feeling about this”. Which they were right to, especially when after the vows the lights in the Impact zone were cut and a single gunshot was fired. As they came back on it was revealed that the groom John E. Bravo had been shot, but that leaves one big question. Just Who Shot Bravo?
Here are a few potential suspects for Who Shot Bravo.
Fallah Bahh makes this list because despite being the best man of Bravo he didn’t seem too keen on helping his groom put together the best wedding possible. Despite stealing the big roll of cash from Hernandez, Bravo wouldn’t see any of that money. During the build up on the day of the wedding Super-Mex Hernandez and Reno Scum finally caught up with Fallah Bahh and confronted him about the money. But instead of admitting to Hernandez that he had indeed taken the money, Fallah lies and tells Hernandez and Scum that he had actually given the money to John E. Bravo. But of course, he still had all of the money which Bravo knew about as later in the night Bravo decides that he is going to confront Fallah, because of the lie Fallah had told to Hernandez he is now searching for Bravo. The Groom knows this and lets Fallah know that if Hernandez finds him he will tell him that Fallah lied, which of course gives Fallah a motive to shoot Bravo.
As mentioned earlier Hernandez is on the search for his missing money which was taken by Fallah Bahh, but because of what Fallah Bahh told him he believes that John E. Bravo has his money. This money has been stolen several times from Super-Mex and he will do anything to get it back which was proven when he eliminated himself from the call your shot gauntlet back at Bound for Glory. It’s safe to say that Hernandez did have the opportunity since he was at ringside during the wedding and a small look was exchanged between him and Bravo. Leaving Bravo with a worried look on his face. But Hernandez may have organized the shooting but he might not be the one who pulled the trigger, after all, he does have Reno Scum underemployment so it would be the perfect way to dodge the bullet of accusation.
The Chesterfield Plague hasn’t been seen in an Impact ring since January 2019, where he appeared on an episode of Xplosion but of course, he was a big part of Impact from 2014 to 2016. During which time he and the Demonic bride Rosemary began to form a strong bond and appeared to be growing closer. But in the end, it was all part of a plan to get Bram on his own so that the rest of DECAY Abyss and Crazzy Steve could take out Bram. However until that moment, it felt like Bram was starting to develop actual feelings towards the demon assassin, so perhaps it is possible that out of pure Jealousy the former love interest of the bride made a return at a time nobody would expect and make sure that he wasn’t seen so he could take out Bravo either out of jealousy or out of revenge for everything that DECAY did to him over the few years he was with the company.
The Death-machine had a pretty big motive for wanting to eliminate someone but not necessarily a motive to shoot John E. Bravo. However, I’m sure we’re all aware of what happened between Havok and Father James Mitchell so maybe Havok intended that bullet for the man she had already eliminated before. She made it very clear every time Rosemary would ask her to help resurrect the sinister minister, Havok did not want him back but was made to after being defeated by Rosemary on the previous episode of Impact. So perhaps the killer death-machine decided to live up to her name once again and with the help of Sami Callihan, who perhaps once again hacked the lights in order to give Havok the opportunity to eliminate Father James Mitchell once and for all. But instead of taking out her target she accidentally took out the groom on his wedding day John E. Bravo.
A few weeks ago whilst taking part in Wrestle House, Larry D had a transformation and became Lawrence D whilst under the influence of a love spell from none other than Rosemary. Now after seeing that her new husband has been shot, it’s safe to say that Rosemary didn’t exactly look to devastated by what she was seeing and considering she hinted at having certain plans for Bravo. It could be highly possible that the Demonic Bride had once again put Lawrence back under her spell to eliminate her new husband in order to use his virginal blood for her demonic plans. But of course, Larry D could have done it of his own free will, as perhaps he somehow remembered that he was once besotted with the demon assassin and given the recent change in character for XXXL leaving them more violent and dominant we can’t rule out the possibility that Larry D is the one who Shot Bravo.
The investigation into who shot John E. Bravo gets underway on the upcoming episode of IMPACT wrestling and will be led by Tommy Dreamer, are any of the people mentioned on this responsible for one of the biggest mysteries in Impact wrestling history?
