Trash talking starts from both me in the center of the ring. Impact shoes Moose, who returns the favor and the men come to blows. Impact hits an arm drag or two off the ropes and then a dropkick hits its mark.
Moose rolls out, Impact goes over the top but lands on the apron as Moose moves. Impact switches sides and hits a topei on Moose to the floor. Moose then thumbs both eyes of Impact before collecting himself. Moose grabs a chair, but the referee takes it away. Impact hits Moose and slams him face first in to the apron. A fan then holds Moose as Impact scores a right hand. Moose and Impact then brawl into the crowd and up the entrance ramp in front of the bar.
At this point, the crowd is in the way and you can see nothing.
You then see Moose go for a summersault through a table, but you can’t tell if Moose hit Impact, Impact put Moose through the table, or Impact moved out of Moose’s way.
Impact then brings Moose back down the entrance stairs, obviously he came out the better of the table exchange. Impact throws Moose back in the ring, gets a drink of a fans beer, but then Moose welcomes him back to the ring with a low blow.
Moose then goes ground and pound on Impact, and then both men struggle to get back to their feet. Moose begins the chops and whips Impact hard into the buckles. A couple more chops from Moose but misses the third and Impact throws uppercuts and jabs. Moose chases Impact out and hits an European uppercut, Impact follows with a low knee, misses the Shining Wizard, Moose with a school boy in to a power bomb and gets a two count.
Moose stomps away at Johnny, picks him up, and chops him back down. Moose picks Johnny back up, and chops him down again. Moose then goes to the second rope and goes for the Moose-sault, but Impact moves out of the way.
Both men back to their feet and start exchanging blows. Impact hits two flying elbows and a leg lariat to take Moose down. Standing shooting star press gets a two count. Impact positions Moose and heads up to the top rope. Johnny goes for the Launch to Impact, Moose moves, he rolls through and hits a kick to Moose’s midsection, followed by a swinging neck breaker for two. Johnny picks up Moose, but he’s met with a chop, and delivers a receipt. Both men exchanging blows again, Moose pulls off the glove, but Impact hits a super kick. Off the ropes, Moose hits a pump kick, Impact hits a step up enziguri, Moose hits a headbutt and then Impact hits an Impact Kick, leaving both men down again!
Moose charges Impact in the corner, eats a boot, but hits a Go To Hell on Impact for two! Moose now goes up to the top rope, Impact meets him with a right hand and heads up as well. Impact goes for a superplex, Moose blocks. Moose then bites Impact to get him off, but Impact comes back and hits a Spanish Fly off the second rope, but Moose kicks out at two!!
Impact then drags Moose to a corner, calls for Starship Pain. Goes for it, Moose rolls away, Impact lands on his feet, but Moose hits a pop-up powebomb, but cannot capitalize. Moose rolls out of the ring to collect himself. Moose grabs another chair, and brings it in. Referee Bravo takes this chair away as well, but Moose grabs the original chair and hits Impact in the head!! Bravo comes back and Moose covers, but only gets two!!
Moose gets Impact up, misses The GameChanger, but eats a drop kick from Impact and Moose runs into the referee. Impact gets a school boy but theres no referee to count. Moose then kicks a field goal like low blow on Impact in the middle of the ring. Moose grabs the chair, kicks the referee in the face, hits the mat, and tosses the chair to Impact a la Eddie Guerrero. Impact realizes what Moose is doing, wraps the chair around his own neck and lays down as well. Referee Bravo is confused. Moose swears he didn’t do anything, the referee tosses a chair, and Impact hits a super kick on Moose. Impact then hits Starship Pain for the 1-2-3!!!
Your winner: Johnny Impact (pin fall)
Impact has a microphone, saying Moose kicked his ass tonight, but Moose is the one who woke up in SlamTown, and now he is more focused on BFG than ever! Says he’s not going to New York for a Twitter war, he’s going to take the IMPACT! World Championship out of his hands!
