The undead bridesmaids then drag Rosemary back to the ring and place her in the coffin as Allie is still forced to watch.

My Opinion:

This was a solid show for Impact after they suffered a big drop in viewership due to the NFL Draft. I predict that they will bounce back from last week. A lot of great matches this week. The match of the night was the six man lucha style match and the segment of the night was the Allie/Su Yung storyline that has now involved Rosemary.

My Score: 7.5/10

Great matches tonight and it lookslike the feuds that led to Redemption are not over quite yet as we got more storyline progression. I like the fsct that Aries is putting more emphasis on the Impact Grand Championship and wanting it to be on the level of the world title.

My Score: 7/10
