Welcome to Ringside News’ live coverage of Impact Wrestling’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view. The show will start at 8:00 PM EST. Keep refreshing and we’ll include highlights throughout the night.
Tessa Blanchard will face Sami Callihan for the Impact Wrestling Title. This could result in Blanchard becoming the first female to hold that belt. Yesterday’s onslaught of allegations about Blanchard’s behavior caused her to miss yesterday’s media junket.
The X-Division Title just got a face lift and it will be on the line tonight as Ace Austin defends his title against Trey. The North vs. Willie Mack and Rich Swann might not happen as Swann is now injured.
You can check out the complete card below. We’ll kick off the results after the show gets going.

This was all about Trey’s mama. Ace Austin wanted to get with her and Trey’s not about that. She was sitting at ringside.

Ace continued the beating in the ring for a bit. He focused on Trey’s leg a lot. Then he cut Trey between the fingers with his playing card.

Taya Valkyrie vs. Jordynne Grace vs. ODB — Impact Knockouts Title Match

ODB hit a bulldog on Taya off the second rope while she had Grace in a hold. Grace tried to work on Taya, but ODB wouldn’t let anyone get the pin. Grace sent ODB to the mat from the top and hit a senton, but Taya broke up the pin.
ODB hit a samoan drop and then Grace splashed them both on the pinfall attempt. Grace hit the Grace Driver on ODB, but Bravo distracted the referee. Then Taya stole the pinfall.
