Video of Eli Drake playing piano… horribly. He also can’t sing… Welcomes us to the show, says he’s gathered the top talent for us tonight. Sends us to his “guest correspondent” on the street to get the people’s reaction, and he sends it to Eli Drake.
Match Two: Dick Justice vs Fallah Bahh
Dick Justice was the “stand by wrestler” in IMPACT!, but here he is known as “The Super Cop”
Bahh tries to get a chant for himself, but the crowd just chants “Dick”. They shake hands and the fans chant “we want Dick.” Sumo charge and neither man goes down. Justice off the ropes, shoulder charge gets nothing “No No No” from Bahh. Bahh off the ropes with the same result. Second shoulder charge, and a third and fourth, and fifth. No result and now both men are winded. Both men off the ropes, collide and both men go down and out of the ring.
For some reason this starts the first Saintly Fecal Matter chant of the night…
Bahh charges in and they both hit a clothesline. Justice tries a slam, gets nothing but a double sledge to the back. Bahh charges Justice in the corner who pulls out a finger gun (yes, he made a gun shape with his fingers) and that stops Bahh in his tracks and Bahh puts his hands up. Justice orders Bahh to get on the ground, Bahh prays for his life and kisses the finger gun. The Bahh asks “No No No?” and Justice puts the finger gun away in his fanny pack that he’s still wearing. Justice goes for a hug, and Bahh hits a Samoan Drop.
Bahh hits a series of headbutts and then a Hadouken (WHAT?!?!) that takes Justice down. Bahh hits a dropkick (-ish) and then rolls over Justice. Bahh covers for two. Chop exchange by both men, Justice chops him into the corner, then calls time out as he’s winded. More chops then charges across and eats an elbow from Bahh. Bahh then charges and Justice moves and Bahh eats post. Left hand punches from Justice followed by a right, and he bodyslams Bahh.
Justice then leaves the ring and poses for the crowd. Justice returns to the ring and Bahh hits a belly to belly on Justice. Drags Justice to the corner, Banzai Drop for the 1-2-3
Your winner: Fallah Bahh
After the match, they shake hands and hug it out before Bahh leaves.
Backstage interview with Moose as he gets sentimental about how Binghampton sucks. Talks about how he gets to wrestle KM, saying he didn’t even know there was a man on the IMPACT! roster named KM…
Backstage now with Dick Justice, saying how he isn’t a stand by wrestler, he’s the Super Cop, and how he was going to put Bahh away, but Bahh is one of the smartest men he’s ever faced. Says next time, Justice will be served
Match Three: Slyck Wagner Brown vs Axel Lennox
Lennox looks like a reject from The Ascension…
Collar and elbow tie up to start. Side headlock by Brown, whipped off into a shoulder block, Lennox off the ropes into one of his own and takes down Brown. Chain wrestling take downs leads to a spot where Brown visually signals for Lennox to grab his wrist, which he does, just for Brown to duck under and escape and try his reverse DDT, but Lennox escapes as well.
Back to the collar and elbow. Wrist control to Lennox, but a leg sweep by Brown into a headlock. Lennox runs to the rope but Brown clotheslines his over the top. Brown grabs a fans water bottle and hits Lennox in the head with it. Clothesline by Brown on the floor. Lennox fights back and slams Brown’s face in to the guardrail twice. Lennox breaks up the nonexistent count, which now the referee starts…
Lennox places Brown on the apron and hits a leg drop. Back in the ring, he covers Brown for two. Lennox hits a scoop slam and an elbow drop again for two. Matthews says this maybe a rivalry, Sonjay says its one we know nothing about. Way to build the match guys…
Lennox goes for a suplex, Brown cradles for two. Double clothesline, both men down. Brown charges out of the corner with two clotheslines, then a short DDT after whipping Lennox off the ropes. Reversals a plenty until Lennox hits a spine buster for two. Cutter by Lennox, covers again for two. Punch exchange in the middle of the ring. Goes to the corner by Wagner hits a drop kick and then a power bomb. picks up Lennox, sets him on the top buckle and hits an enziguri to the back, then a sit out Dominator off the top for the 1-2-3

Impact Wrestling’s penultimate show leading toward Rebellion! Andrew goes through the show and lends his analysis! How was the show?
Impact Wrestling’s penultimate show leading toward Rebellion! Andrew goes through the show and lends his analysis!
Scarlett and Fallah debut as a tag team today! Tessa and Gail’s story continues to bubble up and Eddie Edwards & Eli Drake get their shots at the Tag Team titles!
The whole oVe story and Rich Swann continues as Tommy Dreamer apparently is getting sacrificed to Madman Fulton. Are we about to watch a murder?
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 20, 2019
- Scarlett Bordeaux & Fallah Bahh vs Desi Hit Squad: Scarlett wins via Tandem Banzai Drop – * 1/2
- Moose vs Dez: Dez wins via Body Scissors Cradle – ** 1/4
- Madman Fulton vs Tommy Dreamer: Fulton wins via Lifting Reverse STO – ** 1/2
- Madison Rayne vs Taya Valkyrie: Rayne wins via Roll-Up – N/A
- IMPACT Tag Team Titles: Eddie Edwards & Eli Drake vs Lucha Bros (c): Lucha Bros retain via Spike Fear Factor – ***
Okay let’s be serious for a minute. This wasn’t a great match, but it was entertaining. The crowd enjoyed singing along to Scarlett’s music, Fallah did most of the work since the Hit Squad didn’t want to interact with Scarlett at first. Amusing spot was after Raj got hit with a Stink Face from Scarlett, Rohit pulled him out and sat in the corner asking for the Scarlett Stink Face. They pulled the bait and switch since she told him to close his eyes. Scarlett jumps on Fallah’s back and Tandem Banzai drop with Scarlett pinning Raj was the finish. It was amusing, not a great match, but told a story and was entertaining.
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 20, 2019
A couple backstage segments with Lucha Bros and Eli & Eddie hyping the tag match. Eddie is still imbalanced singing “We are the three best friends” song, of course referencing Kenny the kendo stick as the third.
The final leg of Moose’s revenge against the Rascalz. Moose took the match lightly, and controlled the majority of the match. Lawn Darting Dez into the corner was cool. Hell Dez tried to do a Dragonrana on the outside, Moose caught him smooth as butter and then smashed his head into the steps, before throwing him into the other Rascalz. After rolling him back in, the other Rascalz get involved for the first time and allow Dez to roll through with a Body Scissors into a Cradle.
After the match we see Rosemary and Kiera Hogan arguing. Kiera says as long as there’s two of them, two of them will fight Su Yung. So Rosemary proceeds to beat the crap out of Kiera and choke her with the chain leash that held the Bunny before she was killed in the Undead Realm. Yes, I know what I just wrote.
GWN Flashback Match: Tag Team Title 5150 Street Fight: LAX vs OGz, Slammiversary 7/22/2018
After the flashback we get a decent length segment of Tessa going to one of Robert Irvine’s restaurants where she runs down Gail, says she’s most famous for screwing a famous chef. Then she proceeds to terrorize different people all while looking for Robert Irvine. She doesn’t find him, has some interesting lines, and she sells things well. Not everyone acts well in the segment, but it wasn’t completely awful. A few amusing moments.
Not really sure why Madman and Dreamer are in a non-Hardcore match. It’s an alright match. Dreamer gets most of his offense in when Fulton takes too long to go to his next move. After hitting the DDT, Dreamer goes out to get a kendo stick…in a normal match, misses and Fulton hits a Reverse Lifting STO (think Corbin’s End of Days). Not sure what Fulton is calling it, but that was the end. Then a brawl between oVe and the rest of Dreamer’s little rag tag team of Willie Mack and Rich Swann.
Taya ran down Canada, said she wasn’t gonna do the match, but Madison jumped her before she could leave. Then after surviving the initial flurry, Taya tries to powder out, but Jordynne Grace throws her back in. Taya is mad and distracted, School Girl Roll-Up. So nothing to rate, but I guess this is comeuppance for one half of the douchey championship couple.
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 20, 2019
Interesting match even though it felt to be less than 10 minutes long. Lucha Bros start fast and spotty, but eventually Eddie and Eli slow it down. LAX tries to cost Lucha Bros the match, but they fail. Eddie tries to throw Kenny to Eli, but Eli misses. Eddie gets wiped out and they pin Eli with the Spike Fear Factor. Afterwards Eli turns on Eddie and beats him with Kenny.
Overall Score: 6/10
Above average. Not a bad show, but it definitely felt like an episode to try and put more focus on the smaller stories. Lance Storm getting involved in the main event story does add a little more star power. Given that D’Amore insulted Cage before the confrontation, it makes me wonder where management’s feelings lie.
So again, the show wasn’t exactly a blow away, but there were plenty of entertaining moments. Ideally next week should finish the hype for Rebellion, and I’m really hoping Rebellion returns to the good wrestling form that Redemption and Slammiversary had last year.

Andrew brings us Impact Wrestling coverage! Two weeks away from Rebellion, let’s see how it all plays out! IMPACT on Twitch!
Andrew brings us Impact Wrestling coverage! Two weeks away from Rebellion, let’s see how it all plays out!
After a long WrestleMania weekend/week, I’m still extremely exhausted. I know we’ve got a mixed tag with Rebellion implications and Moose continuing his revenge on the Rascalz!
We also get the IMPACT debut of the Monster Mafia-wait, no?- okay they are now known as The North.
Before we get to the show, just for DeMarco:
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 13, 2019
- Moose vs Wentz: Moose wins via Spear – *** 1/4
- Rosemary vs Su Yung: No Contest – **
- The North (Josh Alexander & Ethan Page) vs El Reverso & Sheldon Jean: The North wins via Tandem Torture Rack toss into a Spinebuster – ** 1/2
- Tessa Blanchard vs Madison Rayne: Rayne wins via School Girl Roll-Up – *** 3/4
- Brian Cage & Jordynne Grace vs Johnny Impact & Taya Valkyrie: Johnny wins via Shining Wizard – *** 1/2
So this is an odd story. Rascalz are pretty well liked being cheeky stoned pranksters, but when they made fun of Moose for striking out with Melissa Santos, he came to their club house for a pound of flesh. So, even though Moose is a cocky, douchey, arrogant schmuck…he’s technically in the right here. As he took out Trey a few weeks ago, he now set his sights on Wentz. Wentz put up a good fight, the crowd reacted pretty well and the match was fun.
Melissa Santos interviews Madison Rayne, Tessa crashes the interview and it turns into a declaration of having a match. So Tessa versus Madison will happen tonight.
Rosemary comes out to try and avenge Allie’s death. The match starts off in favor of Rosemary, then the Undead Bridesmaids distract Rosemary. Kiera Hogan runs out to try and help, Rosemary goes out and admonishes Firefly for interfering. The Undead Bridesmaids dog pile Rosemary and Kiera for what should be a DQ, but they kept saying No Contest. They feed them both to Su Yung in the ring so she can hit the Panic Switch and leave them laying. So Kiera is being positioned as Rosemary’s new unwanted partner. This isn’t a bad way to keep the story going since it seems to be one of the more popular ones that Impact has been running with.

GWN Flashback Match: TNA Turning Point X-Division Championship: RVD (c) vs Joey Ryan, Nov. 11, 2012
Out of the flashback, we have Killer Kross approach Willie Mack on the steps with a cryptic, yet insightful promo. Trying to sow the seeds of doubt between Mack and Swann. Killer Kross is a damn treasure.
No more drinking…
Maybe less drinking…
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 13, 2019
Monster Mafia got rebranded as The North, and for a jobber match, this was actually kind of competitive. Alexander did a lot of the early work and looked scary impressive. Sadly Twitch chat focused more on the amateur wrestling head gear that Josh wears, and not the fact that he was throwing people around with ease. A Powerbomb Backbreaker, a few fun tandem moves and just generally a fun match. The North look like a force to be reckoned with.
Well now, this match was pretty damn good, told a great story since Gail was on commentary and Madison…looked…really good. By that I mean in the ring. This is the second week in a row Madison showed off much better in-ring skills. A few big Frakensteiners, nice transitional roll ups and generally nice movement. Tessa was dominant, but allowed her ego and Gail on the outside to distract her throughout the match. Really good everything.
Eli and Eddie ask Lucha Bros for a title match, LAX shows up and jumps Lucha Bros. Eli pulls Eddie away basically saying let them soften each other up.
Okay…Taya and Johnny have a great interview segment:
— IMPACT (@IMPACTWRESTLING) April 13, 2019
Fallah goes looking for Scarlett and finds her! She doesn’t seem to quite understand Bahh, but she offers to tag with him next week against the Desi Hit Squad.
Taya starts the match and then Johnny jumps off the apron to avoid the tag. He tries to get the crowd to chant for Taya, but Jordynne tags in Cage to force Johnny’s hand. This was a solid match that solidified an angle through this entire feud with Cage and Johnny. Johnny played chicken shit heel, and then John E. Bravo showed his true colors by Chop Blocking Cage in the midst of a Drill Claw. So the questionable Homecoming stuff on the outside, counting 3 for Kross even though Cage kicked out, and overlooking interference…it’s all cause he’s basically Nick Patrick (among others but I’m a WCW fanboy at heart). So Taya and Johnny have a referee in their pocket.
Overall Score: 7.5/10
Pretty good show. Quality matches, storyline movement, a debut, a solid reveal with Bravo. I may not personally like the heel referee crap, but it has a place. Hopefully we don’t get too much of it since Cage and Johnny have had an odd feud since January. I don’t really need this angle to go much longer.
Either way, good show, no real complaints and Don Callis was manning Twitch Chat this week…and seemed to be received pretty well. Ramping up to Rebellion, this is all a good hype episode.
