Bound For Glory X-Division Ladder Qualifier Match
Ace Austin vs Eddie Edwards - 7/10
Ace Austin made out with some groupies during his entrance. Ace got some more kisses while he had the upper hand during the outside brawls. Story here was that Eddie finally had Ace where he wanted him, so he kicked his ass all over the place until suddenly, out came Reno Scum to the ring, which distracted Eddie, at one point breaking the pin when Eddie hit the Boston Knee Party. Thornstowe gave Ace a piece of metal, which he placed in his armband, hit a hidden blade style strike to Eddie, and pinned him for the win.
Good opener, but I’m surprised the finish is not leading to a one-on-one match between these two at Bound For Glory.
Post-match - Reno Scum hit a Super Curb Stomp on Eddie, while Ace mocked him. I really wouldn’t mind if these three become a proper stable going forward.
Backstage, Taya is preparing for her match with Havok, when Rosemary walks up to her. Taya pretends she wasn’t looking for her, and tells her that ‘they’ have a problem because she has to fight Havok tonight. Rosemary tells her that life is not fair and she gets to watch. I love their relationship.
Desi Hit Squad (Mahabali Shera, Rohit Raju, & Raj Singh) w/Gama Singh vsThe Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier, Zachary Wentz, & Trey Miguel) - 6.5/10
Pretty good match, they’re going strong with Shera again. All three Rascalz superkicked Shera at the end, but he wouldn’t go down. Shera took Trey and Xavier down, hit a Powerslam on Zachary, and dragged Raj on top of Wentz for the pin win.
It was officially announced that Dr. Wagner’s partners versus The Rascalz are going to be Aerostar and Taurus.
Backstage, Jordynne Grace is working out when Katie Forbes arrives and tells her to park her car. Grace tells her she is going to kick her ass tonight, which Forbes tells Grace that she’s going to need a bigger boot and then started twerking. This is gonna be bad.
Impact Knockout's Championship Match
Havok (w/Father James Mitchell) vs Impact Knockout’s Champion Taya Valkyrie (w/John E. Bravo) - 4.5/10
As the match was about to start, Tenille Dashwood walked out and joined commentary. Match wasn't particularly good, but it wasn't terrible either. It's weird because Taya has to sell for Havok A LOT since Havok is the monster, but when Taya makes her comebacks, she's completely dominant and credible at it, so they both end up looking at the same level.
Finish saw Taya go for Road To Valhalla, but couldn’t keep Havok still, who took her out with a lariat and a Chokeslam, but Bravo pulled the ref and attacked him, causing Kid Ref to DQ Taya.
Post-match - James Mitchell cornered Bravo, allowing Havok to pull him in the ring and take him out with a Chokeslam. Taya attacked Havok with the title. Tenille went after Taya and they had a terrible brawl that ended with Tenille running off Taya.
oVe cut a video promo saying that what Cage did last week is unacceptable. Fans shouldn’t be getting attacked by animals like Cage. Callihan said that tonight, while Cage is in jail, they take out Tessa and Daga once and for all.
Gabbi Loren interviewed The North backstage, asking if they should be focusing on their BFG match and not Konnan. Page acted like he didn’t know about Konnan. Rich Swann and Mack walked up and said that they’ll take the win at the PPV. Josh Alexander tried to add some fuel to the fire and say that Rhino and RVD are skipping the line while Mack and Swann had to fight to get their shot. Rhino and RVD walked up and said that they’ve been in line for decades.
Stephen Bonnar vs Moose (w/Frank Trigg) - Dud, Ok Segment.
Trigg joined the commentary table, he was really really good. Story here was that Moose was all cocky and could only get the upper hand if he cheated, and he would still get his ass kicked, so there was barely any wrestling, and more short spots with a bunch of playing to the crowd in between.
At the end, Bonnar went for a Diving Elbow, so Moose desperately tossed the ref to the ropes, tripping Bonnar down, and getting DQ’d in the process. Bonnar was busted open bad over the right eyebrow.
Post-match - Moose went to hit Bonnar with a chair, but Ken Shamrock ran down for the save. Shamrock dodged Moose’s chair shot and hit a Belly-to-belly. Shamrock locked in the Ankle Lock, tapping out Moose. Bonnar made sure Trigg couldn’t make the save. It may be the shorts, but it looks like Shamrock has been skipping leg day.
Jordynne Grace vs Katie Forbes - 4/10
Katie Forbes came out with a pair of those new Kazuchika Okada ‘Rainmaker’ money guns and twerked her way to the ring.
Collar and Elbow lock up to start the match, Forbes showed that she had some wrestling skill, but she was no match for Grace. Forbes has added some twerking into her lock reversals.
Finish saw Forbes hit a Tornado DDT for a two count. She mocked Grace, but when she went for a Fireman’s Carry, Grace escaped, hit Grace Driver, and took the win. This was a lot better than I expected, but then again, I expected something terrible.
Backstage, Johnny Swinger tried hitting on Katie Forbes. She told him she dates RVD, to which he asked if they swing. Jordynne Grace followed and just pushed him down.
Impact Plus Flashback Moment of the Week - It was Christopher Daniels, Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin, Homicide, Suicide, and Amazing Red in an Ultimate X Match.
Backstage, Daga thanked Tessa for the help, but he can fight his own battles. Tessa told him that tonight they’re teaming, but at Bound For Glory, to each their own.
Backstage, Fallah Bahh was training while TJP is eating doughnuts. Next week, Bahh is wrestling Michael Elgin. Also next week, Rich Swann vs Josh Alexander vs Rhino, Rohit vs Sabu for another X-Division qualifier. Plus a battle royal for the #20 spot for the Call Your Shot Gauntlet at Bound For Glory, which was also announced that the shot won is open to any division, and across them.
Tessa Blanchard & Daga vs oVe (Jake Crist & Madman Fulton) w/Dave Crist - 7.5/10
This was an awesome sprint, great stuff, but they had so little time. Finish saw Daga and Tessa team against Fulton and took him out with an assisted rana, tossing him to the outside, which Daga followed with a Corkscrew Press. In the ring, Tessa dropped Jake Crist with Magnum for the win.
Post-match - Fulton returned and attacked both Tessa and Daga, hitting a Chokeslam on Daga and the End of Days on Tessa.
We got video that Brian Cage had arrived at the arena and he was on his way to the find Callihan and his crew. Cage got to the ring and took out Jake, hit the F-5 on Fulton, and interrogated Dave about Sami, who came out with a chair, but the chair didn’t do anything to Cage, who choked Callihan.
All of oVe ganged up on Cage, allowing Callihan to low blow him a couple of times. oVe handcuffed Cage to the ropes, while Callihan fetched his trusty baseball bat. Melissa Santos came out trying to protect Cage from being hit, and as much as Callihan told her to leave, she didn’t, and ended up taking the Cactus Special in the middle in the ring, as they made Cage watch. Cage screamed for the referees to take her away as oVe posed over her body.
This was a really fun show for Impact, it had some down moments with some of the Knockout matches, but the rest was really packed. Opener and main event matches were fantastic. Everything is heated up for the PPV, as we head to the go-home show next week.
