Naito notes he and Sanada stand at 6-2 with 12 points. “In two days, we’ll win our last league match, in Himeji, and move on to the finals.” Fans applaud that, too. Naito hopes everyone enjoys the conclusion of WTL, and then remembers that everyone can cheer out tonight. Fans cheer to confirm it!

“So, how about this for the first time in five years in Kochi? Everyone, are you ready? The only way to close out NJPW’s second and final Kochi show of the year… Bushi! Sanada! Hiromu! Takagi! Titan! Y Naito! NOSOTROS! LOS! INGOBERRRRNABLEEEEES~! DE! JA! PON!!” Fans cheer LIJ on, but will Naito & Sanada keep things tranquilo all the way to the WTL finals?


Here are the NEW World Tag League standings!

Aussie Open: 7-2, 14 points
The Mighty: 6-2, 12 points
Naito & Sanada: 6-2, 12 points
Goto & Hashi: 6-2, 12 points
Yano & Tanahashi: 4-4, 8 points [ELIMINATED]
Khan & Henare: 4-4, 8 points [ELIMINATED]
Suzuki & Archer: 3-5, 6 points [ELIMINATED]
Evil & Yujiro: 2-6, 4 points [ELIMINATED]
Coughlin & Kidd: 1-7, 2 points [ELIMINATED]

Chase & Fale: [FORFEIT]

My Thoughts:

A great penultimate round for World Tag League, though a part of me expected each of the results. Goto & Hashi beat Coughlin & Kidd to stay alive in the block while I should’ve figured the House of Torture was gonna cheat out another one since Yano & Tanahashi are also out of the running. I’ve said I’d love Yano & Tanahashi sticking together as a team, maybe they can feud with the House of Torture for a minute. Aussie Open VS The Mighty was great stuff, and what a great upset for The Mighty to win. With Aussie Open having a bye at the end because of Fale & Chase withdrawing, that really puts a lot of pressure on everything next around.

LIJ had a great match with Suzuki-Gun, and I couldn’t help but laugh at Archer scaring those kids in the crowd. But LIJ won, of course, to keep their story alive. Naito’s story of WrestleKingdom or bust has been the story of everything he’s done since the late Summer, and therefore is the story of WTL. Naito & Sanada VS Evil & Yujiro is going to be a huge match because once again, Evil could screw over his former faction. I would still think Naito & Sanada win then to get to the finals, and then we’ll see what happens for Naito and WrestleKingdom 17.

My Score: 8.6/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Match Ratings & Results: 3.23.2023

The Go Home to Sacrifice! PPV this week, Mania weekend special next week! Fun times for Impact!



It’s the Go Home to Sacrifice! I think there’s definitely more than a 33 1/3% chance that I’ll at least tolerate the episode. But with all of the fun pairings with Sacrifice participants we get the potential for a ton of story beats. We also might get a clearer picture of whatever the endgame is for The Design (doubtful though).

With all that, let’s hop into the show and kick off with how Kenny King and Eddie Edwards are exactly feeling about their Frankenstein problem.


  • The Design (Deaner, Kon, Angels w/Callihan) vs Time Machine (Alex Shelley, Kushida, Chris Sabin): Kushida wins via Hoverboard Lock – *** 1/4
  • Savannah Evans w/Gisele Shaw & Jai Vidal vs Deonna Purrazzo: Deonna wins via Crucifix Bomb – ** 1/4
  • Masha Slamovich & Bully Ray vs Tommy Dreamer & Mickie James: Bully wins via Piledriver – ** 1/4
  • Dirty Dango & Joe Hendry vs  Brian Myers & Moose: Myers wins via Roster Cut – ** 1/2



The Design (Deaner, Kon, Angels w/Callihan) vs Time Machine (Alex Shelley, Kushida, Chris Sabin)

Well Kushida does enjoy mixing it up with Heavyweights…and he starts against Kon. Kushida tries to chop down the tree, gets stifled, Shelley tags in to try and assist but they both meet the brick wall of Kon. Kon tags in Deaner and Shelley is getting worked over. Blind tag from Sabin, Deaner gets spun around and kicked in the face for a quick near fall.

All six mix it up a bit before Time Machine gets the best of it, they post Angels in the corner, Hesitation Dropkick from Sabin while Angels is retrained and we get a quick tag bringing Shelley back in to work over Angels left arm. I guess you can see they made him a…one winged angel – okay no more FF7 references. I feel dirty. Kushida lays in the grounded Bow and Arrow Liger Style, and Angels is just get rocked.

Eventually Angels manages to get away from Sabin and tag in Deaner, then The Design start quick tags and stomping away on Sabin in their corner. The Design tries to set up a tandem move, Sabin manages to escape and tag in Kushida. Hot tag with a few quick spots, Running Crossbody, Pele Kick, and then Shelley comes in. They go for some Time Splitters action but Angels interrupts it, so he receives the Time Splitters tandem offense of the PK to the Arm and Kon stunned on the apron eating a Back Handspring Kick, big Dive from Kushida puts an exclamation point on the Time Machine momentum.

Commercial break, we come back to Kushida and Shelley going for the Enzuigiri/Shotei combination, but Deaner moves and Shelley kicks Kushida. Angels gets tagged in and we see The Design put some stuff together. After a Spine Buster/Frog Splash combo, they set up a Double Doomsday and finally the MCMG portion of Time Machine come in for the save. Things start breaking down into signature spams, Angels looks to have the advantage until her stumbles just a little and the triple team starts.

They look for Outatime, but Deaner breaks it up, then Callihan slides in to just protect Deaner. He even stands there and asks the Guns to hit him. So Callihan gets rocked and Kushida flies in with the Hoverboard Lock for the win.

There was a vignette for The Coven, which checks that weird IMPACT spin since they love to play in the Shadow Realm. Not bad, just not work showing in the article.

JESUS H CHRIST – they are rebranding Raj Singh as Champagne Singh? I hope this is a short lived attempt at relevance, because he is talentless. Raj was the worst part of the Desi Hit Squad and somehow he’s stuck around the longest. I don’t get it…he’s cringe, can’t cut a promo and wrestles like trash. 

Savannah Evans w/Gisele Shaw & Jai Vidal vs Deonna Purrazzo

Deonna takes the offense right to Savannah, which is dumb; but Deonna does love to be the female Minoru Suzuki. By that I mean, just fighting the opponents fight for a little bit until the gameplan eventually kicks in. So it looks dumb, but let’s see if it continues to be dumb.

The match has been fairly basic, but not awful, hence why its hard for me to really highlight anything. Savannah hits some nice power moves, Jai and Gisele tend to jaw and be petty distractions but never physically get involved. Deonna tries to fire up with a few quick Chops, but Savannah puts the brakes to the that and hits a great Snap Suplex. Deonna absorbs some offense, tries to use a little bit of join manipulation and momentum to give herself a few openings. Savannah stops Deonna, goes for a Backbreaker, but Deonna counters.

Deonna runs the ropes, hits a few big Knee Lifts, Russian Leg Sweep, float over, Fujiwara…but Savannah grabs the ropes. Savannah stalls Deonna’s offense attempts, catches her with a beautiful Northern Lights Suplex Hold for 2. Full Nelson Slam attempt, Deonna drops down, rolls through, tries to use the ropes to her advantage, but Gisele and Jai finally makes their presence really felt. Deonna hits the ropes, Jai grabs her, Savannah swings, misses Deonna and wipes out Jai, Gisele eats a Pump Kick from Deonna. Deonna flies through the attempts slam, Crucifix Bomb from Deonna, and Deonna gets the pinfall.

Post match 3 on 1 beatdown begins! Deonna has no friends left, so she eats a Full Nelson Bomb and Denouement, and she’s left laying. 

Flashback Moment: Sacrifice 2010, Team 3D vs Beer Money vs MCMG, #1 Contender for the TNA Tag Team Championship Match

Masha Slamovich & Bully Ray vs Tommy Dreamer & Mickie James

Dreamer and Bully circle a little, Bully tries to take a swipe at Mickie and then goads her to tag in. Bully keeps talking crap but Masha demands to be tagged in. So Masha and Mickie start off, while Mickie is trying to keep her eyes peeled for Bully while getting the best of Masha early after a Thesz Press, Sole But, Flapjack, Kip Up. But Mickie allows herself to be distracted a little, Masha returns the Sole Butt and clocks Mickie to drop her and tag in Bully. Bully talks too long before the Elbow Drop, so Mickie rolls away and Dreamer tags in. So the babyfaces are getting the best of the early going until Bully grabs Mickie’s hair as she runs the ropes while the ref is distracted.

Bully cheap shots Dreamer, tries to grab the Kendo Stick and threaten Mickie but the referee stops him. Bully starts man handling Mickie, tags Masha back in and Masha is literally whipping her around by her hair. Same time Lariats give Mickie the chance to tag out, simultaneous tags on the guys and Dreamer is doing…as hot of a tag as he can. 10 Count Punches, Bites his head, Cutter, but Masha breaks the pin. Flip, Flop and Fly in stereo, Dreamer calls for a WAZZUP, Mickie does a Diving Polish Hammer to Bully’s balls. Then Dreamer shoves Mickie and tells her to get the tables.

Masha does one of the ugliest dives I’ve ever seen on Mickie, but its effective. Bully hits a Low Blow while the referee is messing with the table, Piledriver from Bully and the Bully wins it for the team.

Masha tells Bully to set up the table after the match. Bully is about to Powerbomb Mickie, but Jordynne Grace hits the ring with a Kendo Stick. Bully turns, Jordynne hits the ropes for a Spear but Bully moves and Jordynne cuts Mickie in half.  

Next week is going to be more of a hype show for Mutiverse United. There will be a few never broadcasted matches, but since its WrestleMania Weekend, that takes precedence. 

Dirty Dango & Joe Hendry vs  Brian Myers & Moose

Joe Hendry’s doing his usual promo after his music, but Dango also grabs a microphone which throws off Hendry a little. So when Hendry says “Say the only two words that matter” – Dango interjects with SUCK IT. Fun ways to tap dance around trademarks. 

Hendry and Myers start off which actually plays nicely into the story. Hendry invoked Myers’ rematch clause, so of course he wouldn’t be opposed to mixing it up before the PPV. Dango gets tagged  and tries to get Moose to dance. Moose’s leg shakes a little like he has to fight the urge to dance, and then charges at Dango. Little things like that reminds everyone that Moose is a likable performer, he’s just a heel right now, so he’s trying to ignore his fun side. Myers comes back in, Arm Trap Suplex, Tornado DDT where he kicks off of Moose who’s trying to interrupt. They wipe out Moose and Myers, Hendry puts his hands in the air for the wave, but Dango thinks it should be something else. Moves Hendry’s hands a little and then does a SUCK IT.

Off the commercial, Falcon Arrow from Dango, he tries to go to the top but Moose distracts Dango and Myers throws him off the top rope to the outside. Dango tries for the Cradle Counter Roll, but Myers blocks long enough to tag Moose. So Moose blindsides Dango before the 1 count even happens. Myers Knee Lift, holds onto Dango’s ankle and reaches to tag in Moose. So Dango is just getting totally singled out. Dango kicks Moose away, Moose tries for Go To Hell, but Dango keeps swinging, rocks Moose a little and then the Diving European Uppercut gives Dango the space he needs for the tag.

Simultaneous tags, Myers gets caught mid Crossbody, Sack of Shit from Hendry and then Joe Kips Up. Hendry tries a Trust Fall, Myers slips it, Enzuigiri, but then Hendry hits the Pop-Up Powerbomb for 2. Moose is in, Dango is in, Dango gets dumped out, Moose hits the Lights Out on Hendry. Roster Cut from Myers, 1-2-3.

Josh Alexander walks out to the ring after the Maclin/Swann shenanigans. Josh punctuates his promo with saying Maclin is afraid of failure, afraid of being a man without a purpose, afraid of being a Forgotten Son. Maclin’s music hits and he chuckles at the line and gives Josh a little kudos. 

Maclin is cutting a perfect heel promo since he’s validating everything Josh said, and even presents video evidence of how much scouting he’s doing to avoid failure. However, through his validation he’s also poking holes in Josh’s confidence. Josh tries to say it changes nothing and he’s a fighting champion and tries to challenge Maclin now…because now Josh is scared. Like Frankie said, Maclin is doing it “My Way”. So he says no to the challenge and that he wants to take it in Josh’s home town. 


Overall Score: 7.25/10

Now I usually get bored with promos to close a show, but they both played their parts perfectly. Josh with the strong babyface opening trying to discredit the opponent as just another victim of circumstance; but Maclin bringing the receipts like he just walked into H&R Block was beautiful. I’ve enjoyed a lot of Maclin’s run in IMPACT, but this is the cherry on the top. He NEEDS to win the title, he’s perfect since you could see in Josh’s face and body language his confidence is a little shaken.

I also appreciated a few of the little storytelling beats, like in Hendry’s match. Opening against Myers plays into the story, and then Moose hitting the Lights Out and then walking out of the ring just watching his handy work as Myers hits the Roster Cut for the win. Proves everything both men said leading up through this story. Deonna also being the best wrestler in the Knockouts division, but still not capable of beating a 3 on 1 with no friends played well towards something. It’s either going to culminate in Mickie and Deonna burying the hatchet frenemies style, or we’ll see Deonna having to evolve into a more straight forward babyface since she can’t play the heel or tweener with no friends.

The Twitter feed didn’t have the segment with The Death Dollz, but potentially writing off Taya by bringing Su Yung/Susie/Susan back works well since it gives JesSICKa a chance at an angle, Su could always side with The Coven, they can play in the paranormal nicely for a few more months. I just really hope they don’t return JesSICKa to Havok. Havok got stale and pathetic, whereas JesSICKa is entertaining both in and out of the ring.

But hey, tomorrow is Sacrifice, so watch your Steiner Math promos and strap in for the PPV!

When All Heart & The King of the Ropes needed a third man, the Whole Fox’n Show answered the call! Will this three man air force be what finally shuts up Ari Daivari, Slim J & Jeeves Kay?

The Code of Honor is upheld, though the Trustbusters do it with some snark. The trios sort out and Fox starts against Jeeves. Fans rally for Fox and he storms up on Jeeves, but Jeeves stays back.

Fans boo but The Machine, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona stand tall here. Will these three tanks be able to shoot down the three fighter jets coming for their titles?


Skye Blue VS Lady Frost!

The bright future of this young wrestler has been a bit cloudy already. Toni Storm rained on Skye’s parade, and now she’s facing a cold front! Will Skye stay sunny even after facing Lady Frost?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and these two tie up. They go around then break, and reset. They tie up again, and Frost wrenches to a wristlock. Skye rolls, handsprings, and wrenches to a wristlock. Fans duel, Frost uses the ropes to flip through the wristlock and wrench Skye back. Skye cartwheels, wrenches and wristlocks again. Frost rolls, cartwheels and arm-drags free. Fans applaud the exchange, but Skye comes back. Frost jumps over, keeps moving, so Skye hurdles. Frost leaps over, blocks the arm-drag, but Skye goes to the other side to arm-drag after all! Then wheelbarrow arm-drag!

Fans fire up but Frost takes a second to cool off. Frost respects Skye’s ability, and the two go again. They feel out a knuckle lock, but Frost kicks low! Frost bumps Skye off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, but lets off at 4. Frost runs in to GAMANGIRI! “She’s out of the corner.” Frost then spins, but Skye avoids the kick! Skye full nelsons, Frost switches and shoves Skye away, SCREW HIGH KCIK! Skye falls into the corner, Frost handsprings to CANNONBALL! Cover, TWO! Frost grows frustrated but fans rally up.

Fans rally up, Skye takes aim, and she runs in to get around, backslide, TWO! Facelock, TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! And then full nelson, lift, SKYE FALL!! Cover, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by pinfall

The Outcasts may have knocked her down, but Skye got back up! And she shows Frost respect by upholding the Code of Honor. Will Skye be reaching for the stars in the ROH Women’s Division?


Rush & Dralistico w/ Jose the Assistant VS Rhett Titus & Tracy Williams!

All the tag teams in ROH want to #ReachForTheSky, including these two teams. Will La Faccion Ingobernable keep things tranquilo? Or will The Professional and the Hot Sauce be just a little too much for LFI?

The Code of Honor is NOT upheld, so the brawl is on! The bell rings, the forearms fly fast and furious, and the former ROH Tag champs get the edge! They run, but into DOUBLE SHOTGUNS! LFI builds speed, only to double tranquilo! Fans are torn, but Tracy SHOTGUNS Rush back! Rhett goes after Dralistico but gets thrown out. Double CHOPS sandwich Tracy, then Dralistico CHOPS again! Rush CHOPS again, then whips corner to corner. Rush sends Dralistico in to clothesline, Rush SPLASHES, then DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICKS hit! The ref reprimands, LFI lets things cool off, and Dralistico brings Tracy up.

La Faccion Ingobernable is on a win streak, but Supercard of Honor is coming. Will LFI be the NEW ROH World Tag Team Champions?


Caprice Coleman sits with Eddie Kingston and Claudio Castagnoli.

Caprice is with The Mad King and the Swiss Superman to talk about the last few weeks. Eddie challenged Claudio for the ROH World Championship, and Claudio denied it, saying Eddie is a man without honor. Can Claudio explain that? Well, it should be self-explanatory. But Claudio does want to apologize. Eddie does have honor, in his own way. Eddie has pride, something that has gotten in his way many times, but Eddie has honor. Claudio admits to being wrong on that. But he will still stand by his statement that someone like Eddie should not be ROH World Champion.

How does Eddie respond to that? Caprice knows all the years he’s put into wrestling, and knows that ROH is a prestigious title. Can Eddie shoulder that responsibility? Eddie says Claudio’s opinion doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is beating Claudio for that title. A title that mentors of Eddie’s have held. Low-Ki. Xavier. Homicide. That lineage belongs to Eddie, the underdog, the fighter. Claudio’s not a fighter, not an underdog, he knows that, because they know each other. They’ve lived with each other, met each other’s families. Claudio’s a coward for not doing business, so Eddie will force his hand. And Mox can’t stop this.

Interesting that Eddie would use the words “underdog” and “fighter.” Eddie always sees himself as an underdog, as a victim. When it comes to being a fighter, who is the one who always quits? Yeah, they used to live together, but also train together. Who ran off when things got hard? Claudio stayed, worked every single day that Eddie didn’t while throwing a pity party. Guess who put the work in? Guess who is champion right now because of that? Yeah, for now. Talk tough all you want, Eddie, you don’t walk the walk. Oh, word? Well, Eddie promised not to get up and punch Claudio, it’ll stay civil.

Claudio says Eddie is always a tough talker, always loud, that’s fine. Claudio isn’t afraid of Eddie, he’s afraid for Eddie. Eddie cannot beat Claudio, he cannot reach Claudio. Never did, never will. Then prove it! Prove it by giving Eddie his shot! Claudio says that if Eddie wants the shot, he’s got it! But Claudio will tell us all what’s gonna happen, think of this as a spoiler. Claudio will beat Eddie and outclass him. Then Eddie will blame everyone but himself for the loss. He’ll throw a tantrum then quit and run away to implode. Claudio tells Caprice that this man, Eddie, is the biggest waste of potential Claudio’s seen in his life!

Claudio saw Eddie when he was young, he saw the fire in his eyes, and that Eddie could’ve had it all. But then he threw himself a pity party and threw it all away. So mark Claudio’s words. After he retains his title at Supercard of Honor, this will happen again. Because Eddie can’t handle it! Caprice says it is official for March 31st in Los Angeles. Eddie VS Claudio, sign, sealed and delivered. But who will fight and who will run when all is said and done?

The young rising star has shown great promise, but she’s about to meet the returning #LuchaBaddie! Will Alize reestablish herself quickly in ROH? Or will Starkz still have a bright future?

ROH World Television Championship: Samoa Joe VS Cheeseburger!

The King of Wrestling Television is going to get a helping of Sussex County Chicken at Supercard of Honor, but he’s having quite the appetizer! Will Joe tear into the all beef body of Cheeseburger? Or will this be the biggest upset in ROH history?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is headed for the Supercard of Honor!

The bell rings and Joe fires off knees and JABS on Burger! Joe says, “You remember, Mark! You remember what you’re getting in the ring with: ME!!” Fans sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” but Burger still fires body shots and forearms! Burger runs, into a LARIAT! Joe asks if Mark remembers. “I’m gonna remind you.” Joe drags Burger up, hoists him up top, HEADBUTTS him, then tucks him in! MUSCLE BUSTER!!! Cover, Joe wins!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (still ROH World Television Champion)

Forget biggest upset ever, this was the fastest ROH World TV Championship match ever! But Joe isn’t done! He drags Burger back up, for a SECOND MUSCLE BUSTER!! Joe then snatches Bobby Cruise’s chair away! Referees rush out to reprimand Joe, but here comes BRISCOE! Mark is here with a chair of his own! Mark runs Joe off, but the clock is ticking! Will Mark finally fulfill his destiny by dethroning Joe? Or will the King of Wrestling TV only shine in Hollywood?

My Thoughts:

A really good ROH here, lots of development towards Supercard of Honor, and surprisingly, only one promo. That one promo was a very good promo as Eddie and Claudio get at each other and make an official ROH World Championship match for the PPV. There’s a lot of continuity to call upon from AEW here, can’t wait to see which way this one goes. Given how much the Blackpool Combat Club is still doing in AEW, this would be a pretty good opening for Kingston to win and let Claudio focus on AEW for a minute. Eddie can then have all sorts of great matches with ROH stars both old and new as ROH reestablishes itself.

Good women’s matches tonight, with Skye Blue getting a great win off Lady Frost and Billie Starkz with the surprising win over Alize. Athena VS Yuka Sakazaki is set for the PPV but I don’t see Athena losing. That means there must be plenty of strong Faces ready to challenge her. Skye is also still part of story in AEW, so maybe after we see The Outcasts VS Team AEW Homegrown play out, Skye devotes time to ROH and challenges for the title. Really good stuff out of Taven VS Darius, but of course The Kingdom helps Taven win that. Top Flight and The Kingdom should both be in that Reach for the Sky ladder match to both settle their feud and perhaps crown one team the champs.

Great interweaving of stories when it comes to the ROH Six Man titles. Fox, Blake & Metalik win against Trustbusters to shut them up and be clear next challengers, which is also made clear by The Embassy jumping them. Great showing from Deppen against Cage but I figured Cage would win. And then great retaliation from Fox, Blake & Metalik, which are going to need an official trio name if they’re gonna stick together. It really is three big hosses against three lighter high-flyers, this clash of styles is going to make for great stuff, but I can’t be sure the Faces dethrone the Embassy.

Really good stuff from tag teams tonight, such as LFI VS Rhett & Tracy and Aussie Open VS Daniels & Sydal. LFI and Aussie Open each winning makes sense, both factions are going strong in ROH but also other companies (AEW for LFI and NJPW for Aussie Open), these teams should also get in on the ladder match. Not to be mean to Aussie Open, but they’re already set for the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, they don’t necessarily need the ROH titles. LFI would be a strong choice for the next ROH Tag Team Champions, and should think about bringing Preston Vance into ROH so they can really start to dominate a promotion.

Really good match from Silas VS Shane, both guys have been great mainstays of ROH, and great win for Shane. Depending how the titles go, I would love if Shane went after the world title in the next phase. I mostly say that because the fans really like Shane, and it’d be a shame if Shane had to face another fan favorite. Though that said, fan favorite Cheeseburger got squashed in a title match main event just so Joe could prove a point to Mark Briscoe. Mark had a great win to open tonight, and he made the save to close the night, I kinda hope Mark finds a way to get that TV title to “fulfill destiny” on the same night ROH honors the Briscoe tag team legacy with that ladder match.

My Score: 8.7/10
