Fenix who is making his Impact return tonight makes his way to the ring for this match tonight.

Swann then hits multiple kip upa before finally getting back up. While still holding on to the wristlock Fenix walks the ropes then sends Rich to the floor.

They get in each others face and Fenix hits Rich with a dropckick sending Swann to the outside. Fenix follows to the outside but Rich gets the advantage and gets on the apron to hit a springboard move but Fenix tries to counter and eats a superkick. Swann then conncects with springboard somersault. Back in the ring Fenix regains control of the match and sends Swann back to the outside and hits a sucide dive and brings Rich back in the ring. Fenix sets him up in the corner and hits a reverse cutter off the second rope. Fenix tries to go for it again this time from the middle rope but Swann counters it into a handstand and goes over Fenix.

They both then think about doing the same thing as they hit double handsprings into fouble reverse cutters as we go to break.

Back from break and we have ourselves a stalemate back and forth with both guys laying in chops to each other. Fenix tosses Swann to the floor but Rich catches himself and comes back in and catches him with a kick to the side of the head then followed by a fisherman suplex for a nearfall. Rich Swann continues with a 450 from the second rope for another nearfall. Both guys end up on the top rop and Fenix hits a hurricanrana followed by a piledriver for a nearfall. Fenix is first to get back to his feet and runs into a big superkick from Swann. Fenix then sets Rich on the top rope and hits an uppercut followed by some sort of musclebuster with a spin for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Fenix via pinfall

Fallah Bahh accompanied by KM makes his way to the ring for his match. Killer Kross makes his way to the ring for his debut match. The bell rings and here we go. They run at each other and hit each other with shoulderblocks and Kross absorbed the blow. Kross sends Bahh into the corner and lays in the rights and the referee pulls him off him which allows Bahh to take control. Bahh puts Kross in the corner and lays in the chops. Kross then fights back and hits Fallah with a clothesline sending him to the mat. Kross then picks him up and invites him to hit him some more. Bahh does just that and Kross eventually grabs him and hits a sido suplex

then locks in a MMA style choke and puts Fallah Bahh to sleep and the submission victory.

Winner: Killer Kross via Submission

After the match Kross continues to attack Fallah which prompts KM to try and make the save but he gets choked out too which prompts Petey Williams to make his return and the save for KM. He hits Kross with a steel chair but it does nothing to him and Kross is sent to the outside of the ring after Petey throws a chair and it hits Kross in the face.

Kross stands on the ramp and  tells Petey tick tok.

Winners: Madison Rayne & Allie via pinfall.

In the LAX Clubhouse Santana and Ortiz say they are loyal dudes and ride for Konan who took them out of the ghetto and their bad situations. King feels disrespected by Konan for stepping to him like that and accusing him of attacking him. He doesn’t want to wait anymore and heads to the ring to see what kind of proof Konan has on him.

Back from break we are shown how the Desi Hit Squad trains and Gama Singh’s strict training methods.

oVe Cam:

Sami Callihan is wearing Pentagon’s mask and says that Pentagon should’ve stayed out of their business and says that he ruined everything. He announces a six man tag match between them and Pentagon Jr. Fenix and Rich Swann. Sami says he will take Pentagon’s mask, Fenix’s mask  and Rich Swann’s face.

We get an in depth video package on Impact World Champion Austin Aries about his childhood and how he got into the wrestling industry. He also says that he didn’t have any special favors like Moose. He sahs that Moose ckmes from a world where someone else draws up the gameplan for him but he draws up his own gameplan.

We see Konan on the phone saying that he has the proof and is going to expose him tonight.

Back from break we hear from Tommy Dreamer after he was attacked by Eddie Edwards last week.

Dreamer says Eddie is throwing his career away because of his obsession with Sami Callihan. Tommy says that he nows has an obsession with Eddie Edwards.

Rebel makes her way to the ring for this match.

Katerina accompanied by Grado makes her way to the ring. The bell rings and here we go.

They both go right at each other sith punches. Kong takes down Cage and goes for a splash but Brian Cage rolls out of the way and hits an armdrag on Kong sending him out of the ring. Cage follows up with a sommersault plancha to the outside.

Cage brings him back in and Cage stays on the attack and sets u.k p for a running powerbomb until Kong counters and hits a hurricanrana.

Cage then fights bsck and goes on the attack and hits a 619 and a german suplex for a nearfall.

Kong fights backand gets a nearfall of his own. Cage then hits a superplex from the top rope followed by an F5 for pinfall victory.

Konan’s Proof:

Back from break Konan mkes his way to the ring to expose King for being the one who attacked him. Konan calls out King and he comes out to the ring with Santana and Ortiz.

Konan is not made that King put a hit on him. Konan bring up all the times he helped King out during their childhood and King’s marriage. Konan says the calls that King said he made to him while he was in the hospital never happened. Konan calls him an explicit name.

King then admits that he was the one who called the hit saying he is the future and Konan is the past. Santana and Ortiz flip King off and Konan says he didn’t get the job done as usual. The orginal LAX Homicide and Hernandez attack Konan, Santana, and Ortiz.

The battle lines have been drawn and King, Homicide, and Hernandez stand tall.

My thoughts: This sas a really great show tonight we kicked off with a must see match between Rich Swann and Fenix and ended wih a civil war. Tonight also saw two debuts with the in-ring debut of Killer Kross and the Impact debut of Joe Hendry. Seems like Hendry will be involved with Grado and Katerina while Kross might have began his first offical feud. Another great show from Impact tonight. Stay close to Twitter and for my Impact Wrestling Viewership and YouTube articles in the coming days.

My Score: 6.5/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 5.4.2023

Trinity makes her debut and Dirty Dango starts making a list of suspects for who attacked Santino Marella!



Now we all have seen some buzz about Trinity Fatu (Naomi) debuting at Impact during these Chicago tapings. They aren’t shy about, and seem to have embraced the spoilers.

There are other stories, but most people are probably interested in what Trinity has to say. So let’s just get the show coverage started.


  • Bhupinder Gujjar & Yuya Uemura vs Brian Myers & Moose: Moose wins via Lights Out – **
  • Sami Callihan vs Kon w/Deaner & Angels: NO CONTEST – *
  • Alisha Edwards vs Jody Threat: Jody wins via F-416 – * 3/4
  • Steve Maclin, Champagne Singh & Shera vs PCO, Heath & Rhino: PCO wins via PCO-Sault – ** 1/4
  • Jonathan Gresham vs Speedball Mike Bailey: Gresham wins via Octopus Hold – *** 1/2


Bhupinder Gujjar & Yuya Uemura vs Brian Myers & Moose

Gujjar and Myers start off together with Gujjar getting the best of the early exchange. Tags in Yuya, and then we see them go for some tandem moves but there needs to be a beat of communication. It’s kinda nice to see a simple moment of communicating the intended move as a way for younger wrestlers and a new tag team to start getting familiar with one another.

Yuya and Moose have their moments together where Yuya gets the best of the early goings as well. Big double dive gives all the momentum to the younger wrestlers until Moose and Myers cut him off while on the top rope and take advantage of the crafty veteran shortcut. Myers works over Yuya, but the simultaneous offense moment gives Yuya the chance to tag in Gujjar. Hot tag spot is only slightly tripped up because Gujjar screws up the Kip Up, but honestly it gets a little annoying seeing everyone use a Kip Up during high intensity moments. Gujjar tries to set up his terrible Gargoyle Spear, Moose dodges, goes for Lights Out, Gujjar dodges and turns it into a Slingblade for 2. Myers breaks up the pinfall, then eats a Springboard Sole Butt; but Moose comes out of nowhere with the Lights Out to kill Gujjar and pick up the win.

Sami Callihan vs Kon w/Deaner & Angels

Initially the assumption was that Deaner would fight Sami, but we should all know better the leader wouldn’t put himself out there like that. So he swerves Sami by saying the match is against Kon. Early mugging before the bell starts off with the typical babyface from underneath idea. Sami demands the match start, and we get the official start.

Sami has an quick comeback but then Kon stabilizes and starts overpowering Sami. Some offense capped off with a wear down Bear Hug spot finally gives Sami a spot to reenergize. Sami fights out, strike exchange, Kon lays in a few Vader Hammers but then Sami counters Kon’s charge with a Samoan Drop. Numbers game attempt, but while the ref is distracted Sami kicks Kon in the nuts. He calls Deaner into the ring, Deaner hits the apron gives him the thumbs down and the yellow hoodie wearing goon squad hits the ring to attack Sami and throw out the match.

Stupid ending, stupid faction with a bunch of jobbers, the faction that was cool with Eric Young and Joe Doering…is now a sad shell of its former self. 

Yes I am mostly inserting this interview because it has Jimmy Jacobs and no real other reason. Do It For Her, as some would say. 

Alisha Edwards vs Jody Threat

Lish with a big open hand slap, Jody starts rocking her and even returns the slap before driving her into a corner to bounce her head off the buckles a bit. Jody tosses Lish into the ropes, goes for the Leg Drape, but Lish moves, pulls her down from the ropes, rams her head into the mat multiple times with her knees and starts trash talking a little.

Jody Drop Toehold puts Lish against the ropes, Double Knees to the back, German Suplex, and then F-416. Lish’s new persona is great, but she’s still jobbing out a bit.

Steve Maclin, Champagne Singh & Shera vs PCO, Heath & Rhino

PCO starts and Singh tags out Maclin before the official start as he’s trying to kiss ass. PCO starts eating Singh’s lunch, because Singh sucks. Rhino comes in, lays in some shots, shoots him into the rope, Shoulder Tackle for a crowd pose. Singh gets in a few moves of offense but Rhino lights him up and tags in Heath. So Heath starts bouncing some offense into the corner. Heath places Singh in a dumb spot for Shera to get the blind tag and Shera starts manhandling Heath.

Maclin of course tags in because Heath is beaten down a bit, a “He’s Got Kids” chant starts and Heath fires up. Maclin tries to wipe out the enemy corner but PCO gives Maclin second thoughts, the distraction allows for Heath to hit a Powerslam and then stereo tags. PCO is now destroying Singh again. PCO is just a psychopath. Zombie con Hilo, Deanimator connects! Shera attacks PCO after the Deanimator connects. Triple team attempt, Shera and Singh try to set up Caught in the Crosshairs, but PCO falls out of the Tree of Woe. Maclin tries to inform the idiots, but they’re too stupid, they get laid out, Maclin powders and eats a Gore!

Singh tries to pay off PCO, Heath hits a Wake Up Call, PCO-Sault wins the match. Not surprising, but everyone being able to hit their finish was nice.

Jonathan Gresham vs Speedball Mike Bailey

A lot of early jockeying for position and small headlock advantages but a proverbial stalemate for the first few minutes. Its not until after the first commercial and a Dropkick that Bailey nearly takes control…but we’re back to trading Arm Bars and Arm Drags…are we going to get a Moss Covered Three Handled Family Credenza also? Now we just get some mat and join manipulation from Gresham before Bailey tries to keep things rocking and rolling to free up his joints.

Series of kicks into the Standing Shooting Star Press gives Bailey a 2. Buzzsaw Kick attempt but Gresham counters and tries to run Bailey into the ropes for a Victory Roll, but Bailey sneaks in a Cross Armbar, Backflip Knees, Combo Kicks sends Gresham stumbling to the apron, Yakuza Kick drops Gresham onto the Apron, Slingshot Knee Drop crashes into Gresham and then a Golden Triangle Moonsault sends us to commercial with Bailey in full control. Coming off the commercial Bailey drapes Gresham over the top rope and hits the Rocky Romero half of Strong Zero for 2.

Bailey charges, Gresham counters with a Cradle, a few quick Cradle attempts, two La Magistral attempts from Gresham but only near falls for everyone. Arm Wringer from Gresham, Bailey tries to roll through and create a spot, but Gresham maintains, a Pump Kick finally gives Speedball some space, Gresham stutters runs forward and gets caught with a Standing Spanish Fly for 2! They trade styles, Gresham works the arm, looks for a submission but a few straight side kicks rocks Gresham, Tornado Kicks connect! Ultima Weapon…misses! Position work and then Speedball gets caught in the Octopus and taps out.

Not exactly paint by numbers intro, but nothing shocking. Deonna comes out and makes a “You can’t walk out” joke, Trinity responds by telling her she’s going to wish she got fired again. Jordynne Grace comes out to set a tone that she’s game for a fight as well, but she doesn’t want Deonna losing sight of the Under Siege match. Trinity did do her homework about the history of the Knockouts Division, but given the fact she came from the era of WWE she did…its not like it was hard to learn. I’ll look forward to how they market Trinity (they were saying SHINE often instead of GLOW), and how her first real match goes. 

Overall Score: 6.25/10

A recurring statement from me lately, where the story building and entertainment was really solid in the show…but not so much the wrestling. The main event was the best match of the night and it was also the worst those two have had in their 4 IMPACT tussles. So the predictability of the matches is getting to be far too common place. I understand that Under Siege is mostly just a road bump to Slammiversary; but I really need to start seeing more competitive dynamics to get invested in any of these matches. Putting two main event guys against a youngster new tag team isn’t hard to see the outcome. Alisha has done nothing but be enhancement talent since she’s been an active part of Impact, The Design is so trash they make the Dark Order look like peak nWo.

Lets also not overlook the fact that the 6 man was obvious because Shera and Champagne Singh were involved, but the only real wrinkle that developed was Rhino hitting a Gore to piss off Maclin and earn himself a title shot next week. Impact needs to start trimming the fat (yes I mean fire some of the trash people, The Design and Champagne Singh immediately come to mind), and throw together stories where the opposition is more evenly matched. No more of this gang tactic job squad idiot crap.

Biggest positive to come from the show was Alex Shelley declaring that he’s just going to win the World Championship since he doesn’t love being known as “the best to never win the belt”. I would be totally game for Shelley beating Maclin at either Slammiversary or Bound For Glory.

Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 4.27.2023

IMPACT continues to build on new challengers and film from Canadian turf! Lets see what kind of show we’ve got tonight!



We got to start Maclin’s new regime last week, and the Canadian caveat gave the fans an unexpected but well supported first challenger. While PCO isn’t going to put on a mat clinic, his matches are always entertaining and the stuff he puts his body through at 55 is crazy,

The Coven also set their sights on Deonna last week, so I guess we’ll find out if they’ll be dispatched quickly or if we get a longer program. Let’s see where this show goes!


  • Jordynne Grace vs Masha Slamovich: Jordynne wins via Cradle – *** 1/4
  • PCO vs Champagne Singh: PCO wins via PCO-sault – N/A
  • Road to 50 Wins: Johnny Swinger w/Zicky Dice vs El Dineroco: Swinger wins? via La Magistral – N/A
  • The Design (Kon & Angels w/Deaner) vs ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey): ABC wins via 1-2-Sweet – ***
  • Jody Threat vs Seleziya Sparx: Jody wins via F-416 – * 1/2
  • Knockouts World Championship: Deonna Purrazzo (c) vs Taylor Wilde w/Kilynn King: Deonna wins via Venus de Milo – *** 3/4



Jordynne Grace vs Masha Slamovich

This was supposed to be Masha versus Killer Kelly, but I think Kelly posted on her Twitter that she had a cyst that burst, so she wasn’t in a position to participate in tapings. 

This stay fairly equal between these two, Jordynne tries to keep Masha in place with a Wristlock, Masha uses her agility to get out of things. They move to the corner and Jordynne hits a few big shots into a Vader Bomb for 2. Masha looks to be in trouble until Masha takes advantage of pulling Jordynne into the middle rope throat first. So Masha finally gets the advantage while Jordynne tries to recover.

Jordynne blocks Masha’s attempts at a Suplex with her own, but Masha connects on a few quick strikes, Backfist into Buzzsaw Kick rocks Jordynne and Masha decides to talk smack in Russian to the crowd instead of going right after Jordynne. Camel Clutch from Masha appears to be too late since Jordynne fights through, rams her into the corner a few times before the Backpack style Backdrop to break Masha’s submission.

Masha gets caught in a Muscle Buster but kicks out, eats some big strikes, Jordynne hits a Michinoku Driver out of nowhere but only two. Masha tries to find something, she looks for the Victory Roll but Jordynne counters with the Rear Naked Choke. Turns the Rear Naked into a pinfall attempt to break the hold and then goes for her own Rear Naked Choke. Jordynne fights out, Masha decides to snap off a Wristclutch German Suplex Hold for 2.

After a few more exchanges, Grace goes for the Muscle Buster again, but Masha counters. A few quick strikes and we go into a Locomotion Cradle Spot. Eventually Jordynne gets the best of the Cradles and wins via pinfall.

Maclin hits the ring, calls out PCO and demads the match to happen now. PCO isn’t one to deny a fight, but as PCO is coming down Shera and Champagne Singh attack him. PCO eventually makes a comeback and then Santino’s music hits. Singh tries to pay off Santino, Santino takes the money and says thank you, you just bought yourself a match. So Champagne Singh is gonna get murdered and Shera is banned from ringside.

PCO vs Champagne Singh

This is just for PCO to beat the hell out of the heel dweeb. No one thinks Singh has a prayer. 

Singh hit a few moves, thought he’d do the Million Dollar man thing and put money in PCO’s mouth…but PCO starts short circuiting. He eats the money, and then eats Singh.

Champagne Singh is such a waste of time. PCO wins via Scorpion Deathdrop into PCO-Sault. The result was never in question.

ImpactPlus Flashback Moment: 2/14/2013, Christopher Daniels vs Magnus, IMPACT!

Road to 50 Wins: Johnny Swinger w/Zicky Dice vs El Dineroco

Zicky apparently is covering the Luchadors pay but has to go get him to translate. The luchador comes out and its obvious its Zicky in a mask, but the name is great.

Solid comedy match, and Swinger “winning” via La Magistral is awesome. Santino figures it out and nullifies the whole damn thing is solid comedy.

The Design (Kon & Angels w/Deaner) vs ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey)

Bey and Angels start off, and Angels starts off aggressively, but its hard to really have any faith in The Design here. The most I think we can hope for is a decent match. Ace blind tag, Russian Leg Sweep/Kung Fu Leg Sweep on Angels, Click Click Boom next for 2, then Angels does manage to tag out.

Kon comes in an bulldozes both men, regardless of the fact they’re hitting him and all over him. You can hear Bey say “My ankle my ankle”, which is hopefully a work to make it look like The Design have a shot. Ace eats some tandem shots and then Kon sinks in the Nerve Hold and Ace is getting smacked around. They keep Ace in their corner, when Angels tags in, Ace tries to run through Angels; but Angels turns the attempt around and Ace keeps eating chops and shoulder blocks. Ace finally grabs some wrist control, a few pot shots, Up and Over, lays out Angels. Ace tries to limp to the tag, but Angels holds his foot and connects on a Half Nelson Suplex.

Deaner tries to tell Angels to keep the foot on the gas, but Angels misses in the corner and gets rocked by Ace. Bey takes the hot tag, wipes out Kon, a few quick spots, Yoshi Tonic for 2. Looks for Art of Finesse but Kon goozles him from the apron. All four guys in the ring, they ABC tries to chop down Kon with successive Dives, they drop Angels on him but Kon won’t fall down. Deaner gets on the apron to interrupt ABC, and Sami Callihan comes out of nowhere to equalize.

Angels runs off Sami, ABC finally lays out Kon and then when Angels tries to comeback, he gets leveled. Timing Spinning Heel Kicks collpase Kon, ABC 1-2-SWEET wins the match!

Decent action even though the outcome was never really in question.

Jody Threat vs Seleziya Sparx

Well given that Jody is starting to get built up and Sparx is obviously the enhancement talent, this is another match that isn’t hard to see the outcome for.

Jody has an interesting energy where she has like a tough brawler style seemingly keeping the opponent close. After a top rope Thesz Press, rope run Pump Kick, German Suplex and F-416. The punk rock appeal could be kinda cool, but the Knockouts have so many brawler style women and/or dark gimmicks. They really need a touch more versatility in the personalities.

Knockouts World Championship: Deonna Purrazzo (c) vs Taylor Wilde w/Kilynn King

While its a little silly to think Deonna will lose the title so quickly, this could build to more. This should be a good strat to Deonna’s first program in her third reign.

Collar and Elbow tie up with both women trying to push the other into a corner or find a small advantage, but they wrestle to a stalemate and take different approaches after a small moment of recognition.

Deonna looks for a lot of arm focused offense, but Taylor gets really clever with her legs. Twisting Deonna into a counter roll or her own modified Indian Deathlock. A few quick pinfalls follow from both and then they have another moment of acknowledgement. The feeling out process between these two has been pretty great thus far.

A quick Hip Toss into the Wristlock has Deonna in control. Taylor does manage to fight her way out of it, Kilynn trips the leg to give Taylor a chance to lay in a few cheap shots and then tease the crowd and do the smarmy heel stuff. Every time Deonna starts to fight back, Taylor powders and Kilynn is being a great partner. She pushes Taylor out of the way, eats a forearm, and is just getting smacked around to protect Taylor.

In the corner, Deonna manages to crash into Taylor’s arm so Taylor sells to the ref to distract her and Kilynn makes her presence felt again. Taylor plays up the witchy persona very well and very much like The Craft. She’s sarcastic and condescending, but in a cute almost flirty way. So it adds to an interesting dynamic between her and Deonna since even though Taylor is heel, she is the more playfully animated. After a few deliberate spots, Taylor hits the Satellite Crippler Crossface out of nowhere. Deonna manages to fight out of it, into a Fujiwara Armbar, but Taylor gets to the ropes.

Backslide from Deonna for 2, but as Taylor tries to roll out, Deonna grabs for the arm and keeps hunting for Fujiwara Armbars. Both women bounce off the ropes and meet in the middle with Crossbody attacks. Strike exchange, Sole Butt from Deonna, into Running Knee Lift, Russian Leg Sweep and Fujiwara Armbar; but Taylor gets a foot on the rope. Queen’s Gambit attempt, but Taylor with the Backdrop to counter. Wilde Ride, for a near fall. Witch’s Wrath gets countered into the Venus de Milo in the middle of the ring.

Kilynn attacks Deonna after the match, and Jordynne makes the save in the whole babyface respect angle.

Overall Score: 7/10

Well this suffered from a consistent issue that more recent IMPACT episodes have had – and that’s a complete lack of suspense in the matches. Comebacks and selling lose effect when the finish is written in purple crayon because of who they position against one another. The show was bookended by two really good Knockouts matches though. The middle parts were job matches, so there really was a lot of lame filler…but stories moved forward and we got a little interesting character work.

Callihan hopefully culminating his whole destruction of The Design, DeathDollz having to connect with James Mitchell to inquire about Taya, Dango going full detective, Zicky and Swinger…being Zicky and Swinger and Maclin finding barely serviceable goons, I suppose is something. Impact continues to have a few interesting beats and solid comedy to never really take itself too seriously, but really some of the shows are just too inflated with trash matches that it weighs things down a ton. I’ve always enjoyed how they keep even the lower card stories relevant, but we could really do without so many job matches.

Also don’t think I missed this video package:

The only adequate reaction to this whole video package is this:

Currenty reading Fifty Shades of Grey, told my partner I may want to try  some stuff during Snu Snu. This was his response, immediately ceased all  action leading to Snu Snu and
