Andrew’s Impact Wrestling Results & Match Ratings 8.11.2020

With Emergence on the horizon, we have to figure out exactly what matches are happening. How does Impact set up for their two week special?

Published

on

With the two week special event happening on the 18th and 25th, this week is a sort of Go Home show for Emergence. We know that The North want their rematch against MCMG and Jordynne Grace feels healthy enough for her rematch. But what else will we be getting?

Of course Wrestle House keeps chugging on, and since that’s seen as even an odd fourth wall break alternate universe or something in Impact canon; one has to wonder if it will be anything more than comedy skits.

Anyway! Deonna Purrazzo has a twist she wants on the rematch, let’s listen up.

Ratings:

  • Eric Young vs Willie Mack: EY wins via Piledriver – *** ¼
  • Kimber Lee vs Jordynne Grace: Grace wins via Tazzmission – ** ¼
  • NO DQ: Havok & Nevaeh vs Tasha Steelz & Kiera Hogan: Kiera wins via Face the Music – ***
  • Suicide vs Dez: Interrupted by Good Brothers – NO CONTEST
  • World Championship Open Challenge: Eddie Edwards (c) vs Brian Myers: Edwards wins via Boston Knee Party – *** ¼

 

Results:

The show opens with the Rich Swann retirement angle highlights and the subsequent Eric Young attack. Leading to a backstage brawl between Eric Young and Willie Mack that spills out to the ring.

Eric Young vs Willie Mack

A brawl, the turned into an earlier than schedule match, and it was pretty solid. Mack cut off a few of Eric Young’s tricks, but his emotions got the best of him. After connecting with a pin point Stunner, he looks to be going for the 6 Star Frog Splash, but stops. Goes to get a chair and the referee tells him he’ll be disqualified, to which Willie responds with “I don’t give a damn”.

But he takes too damn much time, EY gets up, crotches Willie, connects with the Piledriver and picks up the victory. Decent match, great jawing and character work. Pushes the story along nicely.

Backstage the Good Brothers are looking for Fulton and Ace, and they approach two guys. 1 I don’t recognize, but the other is…MATT STRIKER?! Does Impact really have Matt Striker and not using him on commentary? Oooohh…I’m a salty puppy now.

Wrestle House…it’s…wow. Just…the crapper is a busy excuse man.

Reno Scum jumps Rhino after the Wrestle House segment to get the money back.

Kimber Lee vs Jordynne Grace

Kimber Lee has a decent strategy by trying to take out Jordynne’s legs, to remove the power base from her game. Kim gets a little bit of momentum after the Half Crab, but gets a little ahead of herself. Kim goes to the top for a Swanton Bomb, Jordynne slows her down, but gets knocked down. Kim goes for the Swanton, Jordynne gets her knees up and then chokes her out with the Tazzmission.

Locker Room Talk happens, Heath has a #Heath4Impact hashtag he wants to get trending. Katie Forbes and RVD come on as guests and start making out. Madison says “Y’all can keep the couch” and walks off. Rob and Katie for a little bit after that, until Sami Callihan interrupts it and attacks RVD.

Rascalz and Moose have a great segment. It’s fantastic.

More Wrestle House and this is still awesome. Rosemary trying to make Bravo jealous, Susie needing to explain she has the runs in case her date goes south…just…this show is filet mignon.

NO DQ: Havok & Nevaeh vs Tasha Steelz & Kiera Hogan

Kiera and Tasha get the jump before the bell with wrenches…or pipes, or something. Smart start, but Nevaeh and Havok start to turn things around a little once the bell rings.

Very competitive match between all of the women, with Tasha and Kiera having to focus on tandem moves, weapon usage and leverage spots against Havok. For as chaotic and a little clunky at times, it was a decent no disqualification style of match. Havok was taken out due to a table she set up earlier, and Kiera kicked her off the apron, which left Nevaeh alone against two.

Nevaeh takes out Tasha with a Speed Limit sign, but Kiera catches her with a kick and then Face the Music, for the pinfall!

Good Brothers ask Scott D’Amore for answers, say they’re going to the ring until they get Ace and Fulton, D’Amore walks off making a Hall and Nash reference. Good humor.

Suicide vs Dez

Match starts off for like 20 seconds, then the Good Brothers come out to make good on what they told D’Amore. They clear the ring, they demand Ace and Fulton, and get a video message.

Ace cuts a solid promo, challenges them for Night 1 of Emergence.

ImpactPlus Flashback Moment: Cody Rhodes vs Eddie Edwards, TNA Championship Match, October 20, 2016

Rohit proves to be either the smartest man in Impact or the biggest jabroni. I guess we’ll find out at Emergence…

More Wrestle House…more runs…Susie and Alisha have a match. All based on Alisha being annoyed that Susie said her advice was bad. Kylie and Taya might have a real match next week. I’m not sure how much weight to put into these Wrestle House matches, but that could be pretty solid.

World Championship Open Challenge: Eddie Edwards (c) vs Brian Myers

“The Most Professional Wrestler” Brian Myers makes his Impact on AXS debut after a few weeks of vignettes. Now, being that he was Curt Hawkins, there’s a measure of “really?”, to enter your mind, but it starts off pretty good. Myers and Eddie go back and forth a decent bit, and we get an interesting match point when Eddie hits the Dive on Myers, but bangs his knee on the way down.

Myers manages to take a little advantage of the situation, with a backdrop and DDT. He then taps into his old Edge Head days when he starts revving up for an Edge style Spear. The Spear is met with a Super Kick, then a Tiger Driver. Eddie’s first attempt at the Boston Knee Party is met with an Overhead Kick, Myers hits the ropes, and Eddie catches him with the exposed knee Boston Knee Party. So Eddie retains, but it was much more competitive than thoughts of Hawkins would initially lead you to believe.

Overall Score: 7/10

We get a ton of matches established for Emergence. Deonna tweaks the Knockouts match to be the first ever 30 Minute Iron Man Match, in Impact Wrestling. Ace and Fulton will be taking on The Good Brothers, Eric Young may be getting his shot, if he wants it and Moose will be facing Trey out of mistaken identity.

Wrestle House was still great, building an angle and whole episode around Susie having “the runs” was great stuff. Brian Myers finally gets some in-ring time, and it wasn’t awful. Kiera and Tasha get their storyline wrapped up, and Rohit is plotting things with Chris Bey.

Emergence should be a lot of fun with quality matches and stuff to definitely keep the stories moving forward.
