Welcome to IMPACT! Wrestling vs The UK, live from MediaCon 2018 and only on Twitch.tv!

Sonjay Dutt and Andy Boy Simmons are on commentary from Manchester, England, and they run down the card to start.

Both men joke that they’re more of a color commentator, and theres audio and video issues to start, hopefully nothing that keeps happening throughout the show.

Match One, X-Division Triple Threat Match: Trevor Lee vs. Rich Swann vs. Matt Sydal

I’m going to keep up with this the best I can, but it’s going to get crazy!! On top of the fast action, Twitch keeps playing ads about every minute, so I hope that doesn’t interfere too much (but it will)

Smoke has filled the arena from Sydal’s entrance, making for an interesting visual with the lighting…

All three men jaw with each other to start. Swann starts dancing, Sydal starts with kicks to everyone. Swann of Sedan’s back and hits a hurricanrana on Lee. Dropkick to Sydal sends him to the outside. Corner punches from Swann to Sydal, big right to Lee knocks him off the apron, Sydal rolls Swann up for 2. Snapmare to a kick from Sydal to Swann, pin for 2 and a Twitch ad…

Sydal with a submission on Swann, hits a vertical suplex on Lee as well, and then Lee breaks up the submission. Lee pins Swann for 2. Hard buckle whip and Lee pins Swann for 2. Lee in full control of Swann, stomping his fingers and short forearms to the back. Sedan goes for a tilt a whirl, Swann reverses into a head scissor take down. Swann hits a flipping topei con hilo to both men on the floor.

Sydal goes under the ring and hits Swann with a chair in view of nobody. Back in and Lee hits a back breaker on Sydal for 2. Punch and kick exchange, and Sydal takes control with a head kick. Sydal hits a spinning neck breaker on Lee but the pin was broken up but Swann. Swann with a rana on Sydal, then an enziguri to Lee in the corner. Followed by one on the top rope, and a hurricanrana off the top gets a 2 count. Sedan in and throws Swann to the floor. Lee drops Sydal into the turnbuckle.

Lee with a big slam on Sydal, Swann then hits a super kick, rolls him up and a Twitch ad plays… really bad timing there!!

Apparently, that roll up got the 1-2-3. Nice of Twitch to let the pinfall play…

Your Winner: Rich Swann

Swann then flips off the crowd after the win and taunts them all on his way out to cheers

Broken Matt attempts to procure the Championship of the World! Joe Hendry faces Frankie Kazarian! Jordynne issues an open challege, all at Against All Odds!

Published

on

I’ll be honest, since the lead up hasn’t exactly sparked much excitement from me, I can’t really tell what might get relegated to Countdown and what will be on the main show aside from major title stories. So with that being said, I’ll cover the Countdown this time around, because well…who knows what will be on it.

Let’s hope that the bit of momentum with the WWE working relationship and the stories coming out about the locker room being seemingly happy with the direction of things; have to hope that will start to equate to a product that makes some damn sense.

Countdown to Against All Odds: Jonathan Gresham vs Sami Callihan

Callihan attacks The Octopus on the outside before the bell rings. A few chops around the ring and bounces Gresham’s face off the post twice. Sami goes for the Cactus Driver on the outside, but Gresham rotates all the way through to grab the ropes and counter Sami. Gouges Sami’s face, breaks fingers Pentagon style, and Sami retreats to a different side of the outside of the ring. Octopus chases and keeps working on the hand, but Sami counters and starts going for a few more Knife Edge Chops. Sami tries to Lawn Dart Gresham into the post, but Gresham slips and shoves Sami into the post. Now Octopus back to working on the left hand and arm. Arm Wringers and Uppercuts right into the elbow.

Sami gets some control back, rolls Gresham into the ring and now the match can officially start…OR NOT! Gresham rolls back out and heads under the ring so Sami goes hunting for Octopus. Gresham grabs the left arm from under the ring, uses a chair since the ring obscures the referee’s vision, and then slowly they head back in the ring. Soccer Ball kick to the injured arm, and Gresham continues to try and work on the arm, but Sami is fighting back. Sami tries to Irish Whip, but the sells the left arm! Callihan adjusts his offense and tries to use his legs and only the good right arm. But as soon as he goes for a Cactus Driver, the arm sell happens again.

Gresham rips the mask off the referee, Kushida shows up in a Doc Brown gimmick and with a mask. He attacks Gresham while the ref is distracted to swab out the ink and place it into a vial. Sami connects with the Cactus Driver ’97 and wins.

Insanely gimmicky, extremely stupid. Feels like a dumbass thing that would happen on DDT, not an American program. So they made Gresham talk last night, which ruins the essence of a evil character, and now they have him lose with Kushida trying to do science on what the ink is. I can’t properly express how many brain cells I feel like I lost. 

Countdown to Against All Odds: TNA Knockouts Tag Team Titles: DeMALISH (Masha Slamovich & Alisha Edwards) vs The Hex (Marti Belle & Allysin Kay)

Mike Santana & Steve Maclin vs The Rascalz (Trey Miguel & Zachary Wentz)

Rascalz try to utilize their speed and teamwork advantage with a tag out the gates as Trey distracts Santana, Wentz runs in, and they match each other. Counters, dodges, really fun equal footing but different styles opening. Simultaneous tags Trey and Maclin are in, Maclin quickly takes advantage of Trey, tags in Santana and they go for a Dual Suplex, but Wentz catches Trey and then takes out Maclin. Santana gets surprised by Trey, Body Scissors into a Double Stomp, then Trey tags in Wentz and a quick Tandem kick. Santana tries to fight back against Wentz, but Wentz eats a few chops and then turns it around. Tag out to Trey, Trey connects with a low single leg Dropkick for a near fall.

Maclin tags in and starts stacking up the Rascalz and beating them like they owe him money. Maclin tries a SCUD but Wentz catches him with a Cutter in the ropes, shortcut double team offense.

The ref was distracted with Santana trying to get in to stop the double team, so Maclin kicks out easily because of a slow start to the count. Trey with a cheap choke, then he tags in, goes for a disrespectful Half Crab and Santana just kicks Trey in the back. Rascalz find interesting ways to keep working over Maclin, Trey goes for a Popping Meteora, but Maclin stop it, turns it into an Electric Chair style counter and tags in Santana. Santana with the hot tag, takes out both Rascalz, stacks them interestingly to pull off a tandem DDT. Maclin and Santana work together, Maclin kicks Santana to send him into his Rolling Buck Fifty, Maclin then connects with a Busaiku Knee, and only 2 since Trey breaks it up! Rascalz finally get the best of things, a tandem Rope Assisted Pedigree with a Swanton from Wentz, but Maclin kicks out.  MACLIN EATS THE CHELSEA GREEN FUCK YOUR FACE IN THE CORNER DROPKICK SPOT!  Rolling Double Stomp! Santana rolls in to make the save, Hot Fire Flame attempt but Maclin gets the knees up. Cradle attempt, but they push off Maclin into Santana. Superkick Party on Maclin, Buckshot Lariat from Santana wipes out Trey, Enzuigiri from Santana. They set each other up, Caught in the Crosshairs , Spin the Block! Santana and Maclin win.

This is the first objectively smart thing TNA has done in the post-Scott era. Maclin and Santana were amazing together. This is a pairing that people will want to see again, and if they double down on it being a “one off”, it will make people want to see it again. Damn good stuff here.

Swann runs around tries to get frisky, but PCO grab him, Boots him, chucks him into the corner, Hesitation Dropkick to the back of Rich’s head for a near fall.

Rich takes too long to capitalize, PCO trips Swann, Lungblower from the corner spot, PCO Dives on AJ to try and equal the playing field. PCO-SAULT, 1-2-3, PCO wins.

SDL’s music hits, she walks out smiling and looking like a snack. Asks for the mic, and SDL plays with the crowd about different ways to say yes or no. Her answer is: OUI! 

TNA Tag Team Championships: The Nemeth Bros (Ryan & Nic Nemeth) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) (c)

Brian Myers starts with Ryan, Ryan gets a quick advantage, they go for a tandem Arm Wringer/Neckbreaker combo. Myers tags out, Nic tries to throw a Superkick but Lish grabs the foot. WAIT DIRTY DANGO shows up out of nowhere and rats out Alisha?! We haven’t seen him in months since they punked out Oleg Prudius and him against Josh Alexander. So Lish gets ejected but The System jumps on Nic and tries to get in a few quick shots to try and end this quickly now they don’t have insurance.

Belly to Back Suplex from Myers after Eddie uses the ropes for a cheap choke, Eddie officially tags back in, and just quick tags and snappy offense from The System. Myers goes for the Manhattan Drop but Nic gets away from him, tags out to Ryan and a few quick attacks into a Rude Awakening for a near fall. Myers checks Ryan with a Boot to the gut, Eddie tags in, Eddie bounces off the ropes and Body Checks Ryan, while Myers connects with the Spear, but Nic makes the save! Myers shoves Ryan into their corner, Ryan tries to fight out to get to Nic, but a Drop Toe Hold puts a stop on the surge. Ryan counters with a Sunset Flip, but Myers manages to make the tag before falling over, so the pinfall doesn’t count and Eddie starts laying into Ryan. We get an “Ooo fuck Eddie Edwards” chat that pops up. Eddie goads the crowd a bit and tags in Myers. Headlock on Ryan, Ryan tries to Elbow out, but Myers stays in control and the crowd keeps talking shit to Eddie even though he’s not the legal man “fuck your fo-hawk”. Myers poses, Ryan hits a Reverse X Factor, simultaneous tags. Nic is on fire, laying everyone out, Jumping Leg Drop on Eddie for 2. Fame-ASSER! But only another 2 count.

Moose is down at ringside now, Eddie and Myers with their System Overload combo of Backpack Stunner and Elbow Drop for 2! Ryan grabs Eddie to stop Boston Knee Party, Superkick, into their Highway to the Danger Zone finish! 1-2-SOMEONE PULLS THE REF! Moose points at Dango, the ref is confused, Nic dives on Moose, Dango shows his true colors and clocks Ryan Nemeth. Boston Knee Party, The System retains the gold!

Joe Hendry w/Ace Steel vs Frankie Kazarian

Frankie Kazarian getting compared to Antonio Banderas and then calling him the dad from Spy Kids is fantastic. 

Hendry and Kaz Shoulder Tackle each other, trade a couple shots and then Hendry lifts him for the stalling suplex. Kaz tries to break it with punches to the body, but Hendry holds strong and connects with the Vertical Suplex. Kaz powders to the apron, Hendry tries to collect him but gets caught with the Guillotine Leg Drop. Kaz throws a few moves together, including his Side Russian Leg Sweep for a near fall. Scoop Slam from Kaz, Springboard Guillotine Leg Drop for 2! Kaz tries to cinque in the Body Scissors and Headlock, but Hendry powers through and turns it into a Suplex to break Kaz’s momentum.

Kaz gets whipped into the corner, gets the boot up, tries a Crossbody but Hendry catches him and his the Sack of Shit into the kip up! Kaz tries the Chicken Wing to slow down Hendry trying to keep momentum, a flurry of strikes with a big PK to give Kaz some space. Fade to Black attempt, but nope, Hendry tries a Powerbomb but Kaz slips it and connects with a Back Stabber! Runs the ropes and Kaz gets caught in a Pop-Up Powerbomb for 2! Kaz tries to bait in Hendry to the apron, Hendry grabs a roll of quarters from his tights, Hendry connects with an outside in Belly to Back Suplex, but Kaz pops him with the loaded fist and gets the win!

Post match, Kaz goes for a Chicken Wing to add insult to injury, Ace Steel finally comes all the way out and clocks Kaz. 

X Division Championship: Trent Seven vs Mustafa Ali (c)

Trent said the tape machines kept rolling, they show post-interview footage where Mustafa says the X Division title is a prop, he doesn’t even live in Chicago, and just freaking out. Mustafa charges Trent, Trent dodges and Mustafa bounces his face off the buckles, SEVEN STAR LARIAT! 1-2-Kick out! That was nearly a quick loss. Ali slows down Trent a few times, and the crowd is dumb and gives the “we still love you” to Ali. Ali with a Jumping DDT, then a Dive on Trent, but Trent shoves Ali into the apron and then a Dragon Suplex onto the floor. Back in the ring, Trent goes for the Corkscrew Senton but misses everything and grabs his leg.

Shotgun Dropkick into the corner from Ali, Trent absorbs and follows with a Lariat, Ali reverses Trent for another Dropkick, goes for a third but Trent catches him and Powerbombs him into the middle of the ring for a near fall. Birminghammer attempt, but Eye Gouge from Ali, Trent with an open hand Chop but Ali baits him into the corner, Gamegiri into the Rolling DDT for 2. Ali with some hammering Forearms, but Trent with a Flowsion out of nowhere to get some separation. Fighting Spirit spot, Ali does my favorite thing! He doesn’t fall for the Bop and Bang and just Roundhouse Kicks Trent in the face. Too bad Ali falls for it like 2 moves later. Ali DDTs the leg, then tries another Rolling DDT, but Trent connects with a Dragon Suplex into the Sitout Powerbomb for two. X Plex attempt, but Ali shoves Trent and the ref cowers in the corner almost bumped, Low Blow into in a Lariat for a near fall!

Ali heads to the top, Trent cuts him off, Ali flips forward out of it, Superkick rocks Trent, Ali runs up the ropes for a Superplex but AVALANCHE FLOWSION! Only 2. Birminghammer attempt, Eye Gouge again, Birminghammer attempt again, but Ali grabs the ropes, throws off Trent, slips out and then Dragon Screws the leg into the apron. Ali goes to the top, Trent meets him, they fight in the corner, Headbutt from Trent and they both crash down into the apron and bounce off to the outside. 10 Count starts, Ali decides to climb the corner, Trent slides in at 9 and eats a 450 to the back for a 2 count. Ali goes to get his belt, the referee stops him, Trent hits a Low Blow as the ref is putting the belt back, BIRMINGHAMMER! 1-2-NO!

Mustafa tries to bail, grabs the ring apron as Trent pulls him back, Chops him in the back a few times, crotches him in the corner, Avalanche BIRMINGHAMMER? Eye Gouge fights back, kicks out the leg, and then 450 to the injured legs into a Scorpion Deathlock! Trent taps out.

Josh Alexander & Eric Young vs The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey)

Early on we get the typical watered down Japanese tag style of a few fancy counters like La Magistral Cradles and Suplex counters and stuff, but nothing really worth typing about. Which is smart since the last match was pretty hot, so you want to start simple and build. ABC start going for a few higher risk moves with Tandem Shoot Ins for Jumping High Kicks and Back Head Kicks. EY Up and Overs Bey, whips him into the opposite corner and tags in Josh. Josh goes for his locomotion Shoulder Tackles, Bey tries to counter it and go for an Art of Finesse, but Josh catches him and Release German Suplexes him. Teamwork from Josh, Gutbuster and Elbow Drop combination for a 2. Ace tries to get involved and Josh and Bey go for THE OLE DICK TWIST! I’m not really sure what I’m looking at beyond a meme and it’s Chicago…so I’m not surprised. But just…why.

Things break down a little everyone’s doing stuff, Josh perches Ace for the Low Crossbody but Ace dodges it! Then Ace does his Handstand dodge, Josh just grabs his Ankle though. Ace tries to hold onto the ropes to he doesn’t completely fall, Bey dives over Ace and lays out Josh but then EY flies and takes out Bey. Ace posts EY, Josh walks back in the ring and calls Ace in. Josh goes for an Avalanche Death Valley Driver, Ace fights it off, Ace hits the Flipping Outside In Headscissors. Goes for an Overhead Spin Kick, but Josh catches the foot. Ace fights out, ABC try to team up on Josh but a Suplexes both and tags out to EY. Discus Lariat into a Spicolli Driver on Ace! Bey kicks him, Ace tries something, but EY stacks them on his shoulders, they both slip him, Dual Roundhouse Kicks! But only a 2 count.

Everyone doing things in the ring, a cameraman gets taken out literally, the camera looks like scrambled porn in the 90s. Powerbreaker from Josh for 2! Rolling Senton into the Macho Elbow, but Ace makes the save. EY accidentally lays out Josh, EY tries to Piledriver Bey but Ace jumps over the world and hits The Fold on EY! Bey with the Jacknife cover and ABC win!

TNA Knockouts Championship: Jordynne Grace (c) vs Tatum Paxley

Personal concierge shows up after Tatum makes her entrance, ASH by Elegance will show up…to watch the match, as per usual. 

Things start a little slow, Tatum brings that quirky unhinged Hot Topic girl energy, and Jordynne is Thicc Mama Pump. Okay Tatum counters Jordynne’s rope run by very suggestively enticing her to come into full mount. Jordynne manages to grab her foot and get her to stand up to just Reverse Side Slam her and go for the Camel Clutch. Tatum gets out of it with biting her hand, and then heads under the ring. ASH is actually telling her where she is, Jordynne tries to grab her, but Tatum pulls her into the steel ring frame. She tries to Suplex her, but Jordynne blocks a few times, so Tatum just drives her into the post.

Tatum pulls off the old Lance Storm counter into the Half Crab, but Jordynne gets out of it. Back Kick from Jordynne, Jordynne tries the Vader Bomb, but Paxley cuts her off first, tries a Rope Hung Neckbreaker, but Jordynne holds on. Hits two Vader Bombs only for near falls. Juggernaut Driver attempt, but Tatum stops it, Jordynne hits the Rolling Fent Back Elbow. They fight in the corner, Uppercut from Jordynne, KINNIKU BUSTER! We know that won’t finish the match, Tatum tries a slide and we go into a Locomotion Cradles. Paxley connects with a Spear that she rolls through beautifully, but both women have counters for counters for counters. Tatum is perched in the corner, they’re fighting on the middle rope, AVALANCHE LOBOTOMY, 1-2-NOPE! Tatum starts clawing at the ears since she had the stitches after the Roxxane Perez match. Tatum with a Seated Head and Neck Choke, but Jordynne fights through and they start slapping each other. Jordynne goes for a lazy cover, and Tatum tries to surprise her with a Guillotine Choke! Grace stands up, Jackhammer for 2!

Jordynne clubs with a few Vader Hammers, Tatum tries to counter, Grace goes for the Sp inning Backfist but Tatum ducks it the first time, but not the second. Death Valley Driver into Juggernaut Driver, and Jordynne retains!

ASH attacks Jordynne after the match but Jordynne fights her off. Covers ASH in her bottle of champagne, then takes a swig herself and walks off victorious while ASH and concierge are slipping and looking like dorks.

BROKEN RULES – TNA World Heavyweight Championship: Moose (c) vs Broken Matt Hardy

The Nemeth Fuschnikens show up and take out The System! Only Lish is now left. 

Matt takes advantage of the early distraction, Twist of Fate attempt but Moose spins out but Matt turns it into the DDT. Side Effect from Hardy on the apron, then he hits the Twist of Fate on the outside. Moose sells dead weight well, Matt finally rolls him in, then Moose keeps rolling. Moose and Lish find weapons, and Moose hits Matt with a trash can lid and Baking Sheet. Moose takes one of many chairs, and just lays into Matt a handful of times. Moose barks at the camera that he’s “Gonna end his damn career”, so he fishing out a ladder from under the ring.

Moose smacks Matt with a few more chair shots and then makes a Ladder + Chair ramp contraption. Jacknife attempt from Moose, Hardy drops to his knees and Upper Cuts Moose’s balls! Then Matt starts using a chair of his own. Moose powders, Matt follows and they take this throw the crowd and goes somewhere…the camera work is a little useless. It’s like N.E.W. Indy level of “we can’t see”. I’m just assuming moves were attempt, looks like maybe a Jacknife that Matt counters and goes up high, just to do a Delete chant. I want a Balcony Level Extreme Leg Drop! But they head back to the ring, so at least now we can see, and Matt bounces Moose’s face off the post and rolls Moose in. Vertical Suplex from Matt, then he goes to the second rope, Elbow Drop for 2! Matt sets up for Twist of Fate, Moose pushes off and URANAGE counter! 1-2-kick out! Moose wanders out to find more weapons and drags out a table, as the peasants rejoice.

Propping the table in the corner, we see Moose trying to set up Matt for the Spear. they both dodge attempting to be put through the table, so Moose Sabu’s Matt with a chair. Moose sets up a pile of chairs, grabs Senor Hardy and they go up the turnbuckle Superplex into the chairs, only for 2! Alisha is also yelling at this very audible annoying Chicago fan. Moose goes for a second Chair spot, but Matt slips the Suplex and Avalanche Powerbomb into the chairs! Matt goes for the cover, but Moose kicks out! Hardy goes under the ring for a…. CARDBOARD BOX! A PARCEL OF CHIPBOARD! Moose decks Matt, opens the box and it’s Moose’s throwback Patriots Helmet. Moose puts his old helmet on, charges Matt Hardy and Matt Back Drops him into the Chekov’s Ladder+Chair. Matt goes for a table and another ladder. Is Matt gonna go for another crazy bump? OH Hardy gets a Bears helmet. Now it makes sense why it was a throwback Patriots helmet, because of the 1985 Bears Super Bowl. Matt clocks Moose with the Bears Helmet, the crowd chants “CTE”, Matt puts Moose on the table, EXTREME LEG DROP from the ladder!

Hardy puts the chair around Moose’s head, TWIST OF FATE into the chair! Goes for the cover and Alisha brings out Kendra and lights up Matt. REBY COMES OUT! She takes her earrings off and someone else is holding her baby! Spanish girl serious fighting 101! Reby hits the Twist of Fate on Lish and tries to help out Matt. Moose sees Matt coming and pulls Reby in the way! Matt spears his wife through the table and then Moose hits LIGHTS OUT!

 

Overall Score: 7.75/10

Well admittedly the first half of the show had a good bit of gimmicky extra bodies overbooking. Kushida, Dango and Jeff Hardy being back is definitely a positive thing with Slammiversary next up. Nic Nemeth hopefully picks up a little more steam, because early splitting time with New Japan stifled his initial impact, now with two title losses in like 4 months of activity is a little silly. Hendry getting a hold over rivalry to slow roll his rise in popularity could be ok. I think they’re not on a large enough scale to benefit more from a slow burn as opposed to cashing in now. But it’s wrestling, you never know. Plus if he gets some shine in NXT, it could be better to ride that exposure wave as well.

The card had overall solid action, even if booking was suspect at moments through the night and the audio for the Ali tape was awful…ruined the intended effect. Jordynne with the opening challenge and an at home annoyance is a good angle. System will probably get into a feud with The Hardys, ya know, while neither is injured. Moose has Hendry looming, but again, not sure how they’re gonna play that card. Also for personal reasons I wanna see if Xia continues to be SDL’s love council bestie type character now that she agreed to date PCO.

So yeah, pretty good show all things considered. The end of the show sends people home happy with Jeff Hardy returning to stand tall with Reby, Matt, Joe Hendry and the Nemeths. There’s a lot to play out. Even if somethings sound super stupid right now (looking at you Octopus and Doc Kushi). But, at least there different levels of storylines to figure out. So when it comes down to the bare bones, the show did its job and was a pretty enjoyable watch.

Published

on

Against All Odds is tomorrow night, so we see how this Go Home show is structured to get there. We also get a Hardy Compound segment in TNA for the first time in what…6 years? I’m not fact checking time frames, just been a long damn time.

A few matches to set the table for the TNA+ Event and looks like about 3 Knockouts matches. So fans of women’s wrestling should enjoy this episode.

Ratings:

  • Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana: Santana wins via Spin the Block – ***
  • Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay: Marti wins via Roll-Up – **
  • Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson: Dani wins via Luna Landing – ** 1/2
  • ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone: ASH wins via Rarefied Air – **
  • The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth): Nemeths win via Maverick – *** 1/4

 

Results:

Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana

Santana comes out second and immediately double legs Wentz as soon as he hits the ring, bullies him a little and then starts chasing Trey around so Wentz can recover and land a Moonsault on Santana. Codebreaker into a Running Shooting Star for a near fall from Wentz. Wentz slowly things down with the headlock, even though he’s the quicker guy, so that doesn’t make sense. Santana fires back a little but WEntz counters and starts choking him on the ropes. Referee backs him off so Trey gets involved. Wentz with some attempted control moves, standing switches from both leads to both heading to the ropes, Santana shakes off Wentz and hits the Rolling Buck Fifty! Dive takes out both Rascalz after Wentz powders, bullying in the corner, Wentz tries to pop out but Santana catches him in a fluid pop Death Valley Driver and near fall.

Wentz manages to duck the Spin the Block, counter the next move and connect on his strike combo. Swanton Bomb from Wentz, but only 2! Superkick from Wentz, attempted UFO Cutter, but it turns into trading Push Kicks, Enzuigiris and then a Jumping DDT from Wentz! Wentz feigns injury, Trey tries to interfere but Maclin makes the save. Wentz goes for his Back Handspring Jumping Knee but Santana times the Spin the Block perfectly. Levels Wentz and picks up the win!

Tom has an interview with Mustafa Ali and it just cements his delusional politician thing. Not really a ton beyond Ali is ignoring facts and continuing his schtick.

Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay

Ahh yelling at each other in Spanish and Russian, so no one understand the other and Masha grabs Marti’s head and pulls her down. They start a little chain wrestling with Arm Wringers and World of Sport counters. Bad Drop Toe Hold because Marti slowed down too much and it made the move look fake as hell. But at least the next few moves from both connect a little harder, Marti distracts the ref and Allysin makes her presence felt.

Running Forearm drops Masha in the corner, Hip attack from Marti gives her a near fall. Masha retreats to the corner, Marti tries to go back to the well but Masha has great counters. Slips through her legs, Up Kick, Yakuza Kick, Waterwheel Kick, all beautiful strikes for a near fall. Marti tries to use the ropes in a dirty Roll-Up but the referee sees it, Allysin jumps up, Masha attacks her and then another Roll-Up from Marti with Allysin assisting from the outside for the win.

Why is Xia so perfect in this adorable supportive friend character? I really hate enjoying this wrinkle from Xia…god dammit.

PCO saw AJ Francis take the rose from SDL, so he jumps them during their interview with Gia. PCO just wants the rose back, very Young Frankenstein vibes, and I’m not mad at this so far. 

Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson

Collar and Elbow tie up that goes from corner to corner and Tasha leans into the ropes for the break. Rope run, Tasha Leap Frogs Dani and then connects with a Sole Butt. Tasha tries to go for something in the corner, but Dani just throws her halfway across the ring and connects with a Sliding Lariat Ishii style. Tasha connects on a kick, takes entirely too long showboating and Dani counters into a Falcon Arrow for 2.

Dani misses in the corner, Tasha tries to follow up but eats a forearm and retreats to the apron. Dani tries to Suplex her outside in, but Tasha counters, uses the ropes to her advantage and Dani eats a PK to the face. Near fall gets followed up by a Headbutt from Tasha, then she chokes Dani on the ropes, Dani tries to fight back but another Headbutt drops Dani. Dani tries to fight back again, but eats a Codebreaker from Tasha for yet another near fall. Forward rolling Snapmare into PK but Dani grabs her leg and goes for a flash Roll-Up only for 2. Forearm strike exchange, Tasha gets the best of things with a Knee Lift, tries to hit the ropes but Dani lays in a few Lariats and then…I don’t know. Both go for a Single Leg Dropkick and its just…ugly. Dumb spot and the stutter steps telegraphed a goofball spot.

Dani is the first one back up, a few quick strikes and another Single Leg Dropkick gives Dani the advantage but Tasha blocks the follow up, tries a Cradle, but no dice. Powerbomb from Dani for 2. Luna Landing attempt, but the eye rake into the Rope Assisted Bulldog, but Dani counters, Tasha hits the Shiranui, only for 2. Tasha tries the Rings of Saturn, but Dani gets her foot on the ropes. Tasha with chops and headbutt combos, but Dani hits the Rebound Blue Thunder Bomb for a two! Dani tries to psyche up, Luna Landing gets turned into a Frankensteiner from Tasha, but Dani blocks, then blocks the Okurrr, transitions it into the Luna Landing and Dani wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801418226976358888

Frankie makes a Megadeth reference now with Kill the King. So I’m not angry now, or angry again.

The Hardy Compound thing…I have no words for it. It was definitely goofier than the previous TNA ones (which is saying something when Rockstar Spud lost a match to a child), but it was kinda fun. 

ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone

ASH goes back to the kiss the hand aspect of her persona, then stomps into the enhancement talent. Rosemary lurking in the shadows and just watching the match is odd, but ASH is back to getting her character over. ASH gets cocky, eats a quick Dropkick, ASH powders, complains to the Concierge, but when Jada dives…ASH catches her nicely with the Forearm to the face. Two near falls, and then ASH just unloads in frustration.

Cartwheel Back Elbow from ASH, Jada cuts off the next move, tries to string together some offense but ASH say nope. A little struggle, Jada connects on a kick to the face, Moonsault, but ASH gets the knees up, Lariat into Rarefied Air, and ASH wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801426643694616707

The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth)

Bey starts, its a very respectful double Babyface team style of start. Some counter wrestling, then Bey asks for Nic to tag in, and some playing jawing, but nothing seems to be crossing lines. And no offense is really worth discussing, just basic stuff, playful taunts and giving each other space to tag out. When Ace tags in, he’s a bit more business minded, doesn’t toy with taunts and just rolls under a Lariat, kicks the back of the knees, takes Nic down, throws an Arm Wringer into a Hammerlock and tries to stay on top of Nic. Nic with a desperation spin out into the Release Northern Lights counter. Ace tags out, Bey Double Stomps Nic’s back and keep him isolated. Nic tries to fight back a few times but Bey cuts off the comeback, Nic even just tries to scuttle past Bey, but can’t get to Ryan in time.

Headlock Suplex from Ace after Bey tags him in, to continue the isolation. Coordinated tagging in and out from the ABC, keeps Nic completely isolated. When they comeback from the commercial is probably when Nic will make the comeback and tag out. But those 3 minutes…rough isolation days. Rebound Tandem Overhead Arm Drag, into a Double PK from ABC. Nic is connecting with a few Rabbit Punches, but a Dropkick from Bey stifles the attempt at momentum. Bey tags out to Ace, kick to the ribs into a High Angle Backdrop, and then a Headscissors Chokehold. Nic slowly turns through the Headscissors, gets back to his feet, but gets shoved into the ABC corner. Jumping Snap Kick from Ace, into the jump off teammate Flying Uppercut attack. Bey shoves Nic back into the corner, goes for another attack but crashes and burns, a small struggle to stop Nic, but Nic gets free and Ryan with the hot tag.

Flying Shoulder Tackle into a Rude Awakening for 2 on Bey! Nic tags himself back in, tries a Cutter, blocked, Back Slide, but no, Fame ASSER for 2! Arm Wringer control for the Nemeth side now, tags back in Ryan for some Dosie Doe Wringers into a Double Clothesline. Rope runs, both miss and then Double Lariat stereo tags spot. Ace has early control of the stereo tag, Russian Leg Sweep into Click Click Boom. Ryan tries to run interreference but eats a Leaping Bulldog. Nic tries something and then eats a Triangle Kick from Ace for 2! Nic eats a Double Knee to the face, then the Spike Brainbuster, but Ryan breaks up the pinfall! Jumping DDT on Ace, Cutter from Bey on Ryan and then Nic comes to long enough to hit a Superkick as everyone lays on the mat.

Superkick is blocked by Ace, Roll-Up, no, Face Stomp, near fall and Ace keeps searching for how to win. Tags in Bey, 1-2-Sweet, but Ryan picks Ace’s foot from outside. Ace tries a Plancha on Ryan, but Ryan just slides in the ring to avoid the attack. Ryan lands a Jumping Flatliner and Nic with Danger Zone for the win!

 

Overall Score: 5/10

I mean, for all intents and purposes this show did kind of what it was supposed to. It got across some stories, it set things up for tomorrow,  but the show was paced a little slow. The some spots were clunky, some matches felt necessary but unwanted…and the Hardy Compound thing was…interesting. It really depends on your tolerance for campy and silly. This one was more Scooby Doo than the previous ones, Eddie turned into a legit Werewolf, Reby beheaded Alisha, Myers got laid out by a skeleton and Maxell and Broken Matt allowed Moose to regain the power of 69. If you go in expecting references and fun, this was good. If you go in expecting some kind of twisted mystical puzzlebox…you’re gonna have a bad time.

The main event was a pretty damn good TV main event though. Things are set up a little awkwardly for the PPV, but I guess we’ll have to see how it plays out. Also curious if Tatum Paxley is gonna answer Jordynne’s open challenge or if they go a different route.
