My Opinion: Tonight’s episode of Under Pressure was STACKED. From bell to bell there was no bad match. The matches that recommend you watch are the Knockouts and World title matches. Even though this was a huge show tonight it went up against Game 1 of The Cavs vs The Warriors so I expect low viewership numbers again this week.

My score: 9/10

Cage then drops Sydal which sends him to the outside of the ring. Cage tries to grab Matt by his hair but to no avail. Sydal slides between Cage’s legs to get back in the ring. Cage catches Sydal and tosses him into the corner and begins to lay in the rights. Jimmy Jacobs and Kongo Kong come out to the ringside area which causes a distraction for Cage.

Matt Sydal uses it as an opening to gain control of the match. Sydal wears him down with submissions but Cage fights out and gains control of the match. Cage hits an overhead suplex which sends Sydal to the outside. Sydal then tries to come into the ring from another side of the ring but gets caught and suplexed back into the ring. Down the stretch Cage still in control of the match goes to the outside to get Sydal and throws him back in the ring. The ref’s back is turned which allows for Kongo Kong to send Cage into the steel steps. The ref then calls for the bell as Cage has been counted out and Sydal retains the X-Division Championship.

Winner and STILL X-Division Champion: Matt Sydal via countout

After the match we cut to backstage and Fallah Bahh has been attacked and Petey Williams is holding the calling card of the mysterious attacker. Sonjay along with officials and a cop catch him with the calling card and assume that he is the attacker. Sonjay then tells the cop to arrest Petey and take him out of the Impact Zone. On the way out the cop attacks Petey and shows his face. He then says that Petey should be accountable for the attacks then stands over him with the calling card to end the show.

Ja’ Von’s Take: The show was pretty good overall. We got to see more storyline progression and found out the main event for Slammiversary: Austin Aries (c) vs Moose(Impact World Championship). Tonight was also huge because we finally saw who the mystery attacker is but no name was announced. We also saw Brain Cage taste defeat for the first time since coming to Impact. I predict that Impact will see another bump in viewership this especially since the NBA Finals are over

Next Week: Z & E vs LAX(Impact Tag Team Championships)

Taya Valykire vs Madison Rayne

My Score: 7/10

A video is played showing how the rivalry between Tessa and Madison started and what happened last week.

McKenzie Mitchell interviews Tessa Blanchard backstage. Tessa says that sheis a winner and makes things happen. She also says that a loser is someone who relives their glory days. Keira Hogon interrupts the feudand reminds Tessa of her first post last week which sparks a fight between the two in which Tessa stands tall in the end. Following the brawl Tessa Blanchard and Keira Hogan will face off in a NO DQ Match next week.

Sami Callihan vs Eddie Edwards(Unsanctioned Street Fight):

Eddie Edwards is in the woods looking and calling out Sami Callihan. Eddie runs into Jake Christ who is preached in a tree crying out “Everything.”

He walks a little more then sees Callihan with the oVe cam and begins to chase him but runs into Jake Christ again. Eddie and him get into a fight which Eddie quickly wins and he chokes out Jake.

Eddie makes his way to back to the cars and hears a car alarm go off. Dave Christ pops out of the truck and jumps Eddie but Eddie quickly takes care of him and slams a the trunk door on his head and leaves him there.

Eddie finally finds Sami and the brawl is on. They run at each other with a kendo stick and a bat with Eddie getting the better of the exchange they then begin to brawl all over the woods. Sami picks up an animal skull and tries to use it against Eddie but Eddie  moves out of the way. Eddie then tries to hit him with a kendo stick but Sami ducks. Eddie then drives a tree branch into his skull which busts him open.

Tommy Dreamer and his wife Alisha Edwards pull up in a car pleading for Eddie to stop. Eddie turns around to find that Callihan has disappeared which makes Eddie more mad and he hits Dreamer with the baseball and ask for his wife Alisha to come with him to look for Sami but she stays behind to check on Tommy as Eddie wanders off to look for Sami alone as the show goes off the air.

Winner: No Contest or To Be Continued 

My Take: The show itself was not the best one we have since from the post Redemption era of Impact. It was basically full of video packages and backstage segments with only four matches. The matches of the night were the Tag Team Championships Match and the fight between Sami Callihan and Eddie Edwards in the woods.

My Score: 6/10
