Impact X-Division Championship

Rohit Raju (c) vs. Chris Bey vs. Jordynne Grace vs. Trey vs. TJP vs. Willie Mack

They all left the ring as Rohit left, then the champ was thrown back in. Then they started the action in the ring. This was a wild match where wrestlers entered and left the ring to trade the spotlight.

Trey hit a reverse 6-1-9 on Bey, then Mack came in and he hit a big tackle on Trey. Grace came in and tried to get Willie down, which she did, but it took about 4 shoulder tackles. Willie slammed Grace and she rolled out while selling.

TJP entered next and he got a leg submission on Willie and Trey at the same time. Then he got a side headlock on Grace and another hold on Bey. TJP had a submission on four people at once.

They continued on and Rohit hit a suplex on Grace after they cleared the ring. “She’s got some spunk, don’t she?” Raju asked out loud. Then Grace was tripped by Willie and he came in to take out Rohit with a forearm.

Trey took a clothesline from Mack and then Mack hit a spinning back elbow on Bey. Rohit then found himself between Grace and Mack where they took shots at him. Bey and Trey got up to get some shots, too.

Mack hit a dive on Grace, Bey, an TJP next. Trey then went for a dive, but TJP stopped him on the apron. Then Bey hit a dropkick on Trey who was on the shoulders of TJP. Bey hit another big dive on everyone next.

Rohit nailed TJP with a dropkick and rolled him up to get a two-count. TJP almost got a pinfall next after a crucifix slam, but Grace broke it up. Grace stopped Trey on top, and then Bey joined them. TJP climbed up, but Bey pulled him off. The had Grace hanging upside down, and she assisted in a big tower of doom move. Then Rohit nailed a foot stomp on Grace after yelling: “EQUALITY!”

They continued on, and TJP ended up getting Grace in a kneebar. Trey then came in, and TJP locked him in a kneebar instead before Grace nailed a senton on TJP. Grace hit a Grace river, but Rohit broke up the pin.

Rohit threw Grace off the top rope to the floor to take her out. Then he kicked TJP after he hit his finisher, and Rohit retained.

This is a gauntlet for a shot at any title in the company.

Rhino or Heath must win, or they’re done with Impact Wrestling. If they win then Heath gets a contract.

Daivari and Rhino are the first two in the match. This was Daivari’s first appearance for Impact since 2009. Rhino beat Daivari around the ring and then when they got back in, Larry D came out followed by Crazzy Steve.

They didn’t do much, but brawl around. Then Acey Romero came out which meant that XXXL were in the match together. Tenille Dashwood entered next, along with Kaleb (with a K). Tenille didn’t get in the match, she was too worried about getting her picture taken.

Kaleb got in the ring and started wrestling. Then Havoc came in and Brian Myers entered next. Crazzy Steve was eliminated by Myers. Then Swoggle entered (Myers must have brought him).

Daivari was eliminated next and then Swoggle before Tommy Dreamer made his way to the ring wearing Road Warrior Animal face paint. Alisha Edwards came in next. Dreamer was eliminated next, and then Myers threw Alisha out.

Kiera Hogan came out next with Tasha Steelz. Then Taya entered next and she got to hit some dropkicks and a hip attack on XXXL in the corner. Fallah Bahh entered next. Havoc was eliminated, and so was Kiera.

James Storm entered next and he took the fight to everyone in the room. Adam Thornstowe from Reno Scum entered next. Myers tried to eliminate Storm, but it didn’t work.

Then Luster The Legend of Reno Scum came out. They did some tag team moves for a bit. Then Heath came out and he took to the match already on fire. Heath eliminated Myers and then Sami Callihan came out at #19, and he tried to eliminate Storm, but it didn’t work.

Hernandez came out in the final spot. Then it was a battle royal from there. Fallah Bah was sent over the top rope, but at least he had a wad full of cash while he did it, it was Hernandez’s money and he left to get him.

Thornstowe was thrown out by Rhino as they continued and then Luster was taken out. The final four were Storm, Heath, Rhino, and Callihan. Heath seemed to be hurt as Storm was sent out, too.

Then Callihan threw Heath over the top rope and the officials started to look at Heath. Callihan went to get a chair, and the referee took it away. Then he hit a Gore and got the win.

Winner: Rhino

The North cut an absolute fire promo backstage. Ethan Page was pumped, and Josh Alexander wasn’t kidding when he said they wanted to get in the best shape of their careers for Bound For Glory.

EC3 vs Moose

The “undisclosed location” was a ring in a warehouse. Moose showed up, but EC3 took his time getting to the ring. His creepy piano music also played as he got in the ring.

They stood face to face and then started trading shots. The ring was also surrounded by EC3’s followers who are controlling their own narrative, but they remained motionless and silent.

EC3 kicked Moose down in the corner as his followers started to beat on the ring apron. Moose landed a retaliation shot that sent EC3 down. Then Moose got him up and sent EC3 into the turnbuckle. EC3 started to bleed on the forehead.

Moose then got a chair and wanted to know why EC3 has been tormenting him, but the bloody EC3 didn’t say anything. Suddenly, EC3 went on the attack.

Moose got away and landed a big kick to put EC3 down. They went outside the ring and then EC3 took control as he sent Moose into a guardrail. EC3 got Moose up, and he sent him into the ring post two times.

They moved into the ring and EC3 picked up the TNA Title and he said that it means something, and Moose doesn’t deserve it. He said that Moose should become a legend, and then he can hold the title, but not he’s not a champion.

EC3 got Moose up next, and he had a flashback from his old TNA days before Moose nailed him with a spear. Moose kept asking him “is this what you want?” He mounted EC3 and paid a ton of punches into him and left EC3 laying on the mat, bloody, and beaten.

Moose tore his own shirt off that was covered in EC3’s blood. He asked EC3 is this what you want? EC3 popped up and screamed: “YES!” The followers around the ring started chanting “Moose, Moose, Moose,” and then Moose took EC3 out with the TNA Title while ominous music played.

Ken Shamrock vs Eddie Edwards

Eddie tried to lock up, but Ken wanted to strike. Shamrock eventually nailed a punch, and it rocked Eddie. Then Shamrock wrapped Edwards up, and brought him to the mat as he kept Eddie’s back.

Shamrock picked his shots with Edwards as he punched down on him. Edwards turned it around on Shamrock and then rained down some punches before Shamrock trapped Edwards’ leg and brought him down with a grapevine, but he got up. Then Ken took some strikes to Eddie in the corner.

Ken Shamrock kicked Eddie next and sent him out of the ring for more kicks and knee him in the face. Edwards was having a bad time when he took the back of his head to the guardrail.

They went back in the ring, and things didn’t get better for Eddie Edwards. Then Eddie countered with a throw and he hit a couple Dragon Screws on Ken’s legs. Then Eddie sent Ken out of the ring with a basement dropkick before hitting a dive on Callihan and Shamrock.

Edwards hit a missile dropkick for a two count. Shamrock soon had Edwards in a cross armbreaker, but Shamrock had to break the hold when Eddie pinned him in the move. Eddie hit a running elbow, and then he hit a backpack stunner before Shamrock locked on a sleeper hold.

Eddie nailed Shamrock with a headbutt and Ken took a Boston Knee Party before getting a single leg Boston Crab on Shamrock. Callihan got on the apron and he turned out the lights.

When the lights came back on, Sami was in the ring with a baseball bat. Eddie got out his kendo stick and he ran Callihan off before Ken threw him down and locked on his ankle lock to win.

Winner: Ken Shamrock

Impact World Tag Team Championship

The Motor City Machine Guns (c) vs. The Good Brothers vs. Madman Fulton and Ace Austin vs. The North

The North didn’t even let the champs get to the ring. Alexander hit Shelley with a piledriver move on the ramp and the doctor immediately tended to him. As they assisted Shelley out of the arena, Ethan Page applauded him for being so brave while Don Callis called Page a “scumbag.”

The match then got started with Shelley gone. Fulton and Austin tagged in and out and abused Sabin. Alexander made a blind tag so he could continue taking the pain to Sabin.

Page held Page’s head and yelled at the camera. The Good Brothers hadn’t signed in the match next. They continued on in this tag team match.

Ethan Page took the tag and he came in to hit a few moves on Sabin prior to tagging Alexander again. Sabin continued this match as the legal man without tagging anyone.

Sabin returned fire eventually as he hit Fulton with a DDT. Then Sabin tagged Karl Anderson who was finally joining the match. Gallows took the tag next so he got to take part in the match.

The North tried to do a doubt team move, but Gallows kick then down. Then Sabin tagged himself in and he took the fight to the Good Brothers. Anderson almost got the pinfall, but Sabin kicked out.

They continued, and Sabin almost put away Ace Austin, but Page broke up the pinfall. Sabin sent Page outside and then Sabin climbed up turnbuckle. The North stopped him and they hit a double team move for the two count.

Alexander was stopped from doing another double team move, and they continued. Austin got on Fulton’s shoulders, and then The North took him out. They fought with Anderson who was on the top rope. He hit a neck breaker from the top.

Then Good Brothers missed a Magic Killer as Alexander sent him out of the ring. Page hit Anderson with the title and they won the titles.

Winners: The North

Impact Knockouts Championship

Deonna Purrazzo (c) vs. Kylie Rae

Kylie Rae didn’t show up, nobody knew where she was…. so Su Yung showed up instead.

Su Yung took a savage attack to Deonna. Then Su Yung hit a sidewalk slam on the apron before getting a steel chair. Su set up the chair, and Kimber Lee, who arrived with Purrazzo, ran for cover.

Deonna returned fire and kicked Sui down in the corner. Then Purrazzo got Yung up and wrenched at her arm time and time again. Purrazzo nailed a short clothesline for a two count.

Purrazzo sent Su Yung down and transitioned it into an armbar, but she let go. She went for a knee drop, but she missed and Su regained control.

Deonna then hit the Paradise Spot on Su Yung and then she sent Yung to the floor before they returned to the ring. Then Purrazzo hit three German Suplexes in a row.

Su Yung then countered a suplex with a DDT. They got back up, and Su Yung hit even more strikes before Su mounted her and started pummeling the Virtuosa. Then Su Yung hit a bulldog which sent Purrazzo out of the ring.

Yung sat Deonna in a chair and did a flipping dive of the apron onto her. Then Su Young got her in the ring, hit a Pedigree, and she kicked out at two. Su Yung put on her disgusting glove next and was looking for a Mandible Claw, but Deonna got away and accidentally kicked a referee.

Then Su couldn’t get a pinfall, because the ref was out. Kimber Lee hit Su Yung with a chair and they placed Su Yung in place for Purrazzo to jump on her, but she was caught in a Mandible Claw. Yung hit a red mist in Kimber Lee’s face, and then Su Yung got on the Mandible Claw as Deonna had her own submission on.

Yung ate two kicks as her mouth was busted open. Then Purrazzo tried to get an armbar, but Yung hit a stunner, a Panic Switch, and she won the match.

Winner: Su Yung

Impact World Championship

Eric Young vs. Rich Swann

They took the action outside of the ring early on. Then they returned only to go outside again where Swann hit a dive off the apron.

Rich took a bump on the apron, and he hurt his neck. The referee started to count, and Eric Young waited for him. Young put Swann on the top rope and nailed a neckbreaker off the top rope, but Swann kicked out at two time and time again.

Rich Swann started to fight back, but Eric Young stopped his momentum yet again before applying a neck submission.

Eric Young continued to target Swann’s neck as he picked each move. Swann landed on his feet off a suplex and he hit some chops, but EY caught him and hit a suplex anyway. 1-2- kickout.

Swann stayed on the mat while Eric Young continued to abuse him. Then he turned to the camera and said that “Impact, this is your fault,” while talking to the camera.

Young continued to tell Swann to “go away!” Swann kept climbing to his feet to fight on. Young nailed a chop in the corner, but Rich Swann didn’t stay down. Young said: “Go home Rich, this world belongs to me! Stay down!” as he punched him. “Stop that! Stay down!” he continued to yell between strikes.

Swann was bleeding from the mouth. He took a moment to spit up some blood.

Swann fired up and Young jumped on the top rope only to be taken down the hard way to the mat. Rich nailed a clothesline and a back kick before kicking him again and hitting a rana from the top rope. Then he nailed a frog splash off the top for a two count.

They moved up top again, and Eric Young bit Swann’s face and hit an elbow drop. Then Young pinned Swann and turned it into a crossface, but Swann got to the ropes.

They started trading punches and then Swann kicked him, but Young caught him off a handspring and sent him to the mat for a two count.

Young stopped Swann on the top rope, and he wrapped him in the tree of woe to further the damage on Swann’s ankle. Then Swann nailed a cutter and another handspring cutter before he climbed up to hit a Phoenix Splash for the win.
