Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 12.8.2022

Josh Alexander finally addresses what happened at Over Drive! MCMG gets a title match! Eric Young was written out, how does Deaner change Violent by Design?

Published

on

We get a new era of VBD, Motor City Machine Guns with a tag title shot and Josh Alexander will finally address what happened at Over Drive. I doubt we’re going to get a clean resolution to the tag match since Brian Myers and Matt Cardona are just assholes, but hopefully we get something fun.

Apparently since Deaner is the Violence, the group is just called The Design.

Ratings:

  • Tag Team Titles: Motor City Machine Guns vs Heath & Rhino (c): No Contest – ** 1/4
  • Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Taya Valkyrie w/Death Dollz: Savannah wins via Full Nelson Bomb – **
  • Kon w/The Design vs Sami Callihan: Kon wins via Death Valley Driver – **
  • IMPACT World Championship Open Challenge: Mike Bailey vs Josh Alexander (c): Josh retains via C4 Spike – *****

Results:

Tag Team Titles: Motor City Machine Guns vs Heath & Rhino (c)

Rhino and Sabin start off and they work to Shelley and Heath with a little bit of MCMG tandem work. Guns are tying up Heath, some corner work where the ref is allowing a little more contact than usual; main point is that Heath is getting twisted and torqued.

Heath tries to paint brush his way out of a Figure Four, but Shelley dips into his heel tendencies. Heath gets to the ropes and Shelley lays back and tells the ref he’s willing to break. He doesn’t and forces the referee to untie their legs, so he gets some extra damage in. Dragon Screw attempt gets turned around, Heath drops Shelley and finally gets Rhino back in.

Guns try to utilize some tandem attacks, but as we see Sabin and Heath swinging back and forth; the Major Players hit the ring and hit simultaneous Wake Up Calls on Heath and Sabin, causing the no contest.

Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Taya Valkyrie w/Death Dollz

Savannah starts off honestly just overpowering Taya. A few quick shoves, Bear Hugs, rag dolls…and Taya is on the back foot. A little bit of ducking and dodging gives Taya the chances to hit the Spear and send Savannah out.

Savannah puts the brakes on anything Taya can start, we go to commercial and Savannah throws Taya with a Butterfly Suplex…so there’s just a lot of Taya working from underneath. Flying Headscissors finally gives Taya a breather, Blue Thunder Bomb for 2 into an Indian Deathlock transitioning into an STF before Savannah fights out.

Road to Valhalla attempt, Savannah blocks it, a little back and forth before Savannah connects with the Full Nelson Bomb for the win.

Kon w/The Design vs Sami Callihan

Early on Sami is struggling with Kon’s power and size. This is hard to really swallow, even as an early “debut” of a new stable. Sami keeps fighting the good fight, grasps for a Jaw Breaker and turns a Kon charge into a Scoop Slam…but Kon tries to keep being the immovable object.

Sami buckles Kon’s knee and hits the Tanaka style forearm and tries to stay on the bigger guy. The numbers eventually start to distract Sami, Angels distracts the referee, Deaner stops Sami and Kon hits a Death Valley Driver for the win.

I’m not really impressed with this, but I guess you really can’t have the new stable get punked out. Even though they are all punks.

Josh Alexander comes out to address the Over Drive fallout and states an open challenge with the intent to drag out Bully Ray – but Bully has a whole video set up goading Josh and saying he’s not there. 

So Speedball Mike Bailey comes down to see if the open challenge is still on the table. 

IMPACT World Championship Open Challenge: Mike Bailey vs Josh Alexander (c)

Bailey tries to come at Josh hard, and Josh shows that his left arm is still bothering him some; but he generally shrugs off Bailey for the early goings. A big Forearm and Kitchen Sink have Josh slowly stalking his opponent. His attention isn’t on Bailey, so his style reflects as much.

Josh sends Bailey to the ropes, back handspring, machine gun kicks send Josh reeling and a Tope con Hilo finally gives Bailey some momentum. Commercial break comes back with Bailey hitting a big Double Knees, but a Running Boot from Josh puts things back in his favor. Josh lands kick after kick, big forearms, and just hits Bailey with disdain because he’s not Bully Ray.

A Shotgun Dropkick opens things up for Speedball, Sole Butt doubles over Josh, Axe Kick, Roundhouse into a Corkscrew Shooting Star Press for 2. Buzzsaw Kick missed, German Suplex train begins! Two in a row, Bailey tries to block, so Josh pins the arms and hits a Shutdown Suplex for 2. C4 Spike, spun out, Ankle Lock attempt, blocked and turned into a Kimura from Bailey, but now they’re just jockeying for submission positions. Josh counters the Octopus into running him into the corner twice, but Speedball doesn’t let go. One more attempted jam, but a Poison Rana gives Bailey a 2 count.

Another commercial comes back to Josh driving his knee into Speedball’s shoulder blades. Flipping Stomp miss from Bailey, Tornado Kicks land, Ultima Weapon misses and Josh goes for a C4 Spike but the arm gives out! They spill to the outside and Bailey strings together some offense. A big Missile Dropkick leads into Round Kicks, and then open hand chop exchange. Both men after just firing back and forth, neither is relenting. Forearms and kicks, finally into a proper Fighting Spirit spot that Bailey counters a Rolling Forearm with a Straight Side Kick. Bailey charges into the ropes, Josh catches him in Capture Suplex position but drags him over the ropes and slams him onto the apron.

This is a third commercial break and we’re perched with Bailey going for a Super Frankensteiner, Josh blocks, feigns the Avalanche Styles Clash, but Bailey counters! Flamingo Driver attempt, Josh gets pissed, counters and then throws Bailey with a Torture Rack Bomb. 2 count immediately into the Ankle Lock, but Bailey blocks, manages to get away, counters Josh in the corner, Ultima Weapon connects! But Bailey can’t get the pinfall as he sells his legs. Speedball gets up, PK as he keeps selling the legs but still uses his offense. PK again! Backflip Double Knees, a few missed kicks before finally connecting and then charging through with the snap kick. Open Hand Chops from Josh, Kicks from Bailey, Josh just grabs him and starts the locomotion German Suplexes.

Six suplexes and another commercial! Back perched, Kimura Lock from Bailey, Josh fights, Bailey tries a kick, but Josh grabs him and dumps him back into the ring with an Olympic Slam for a near fall. Josh climbs to the top, Moonsault misses! Bailey slowly climbs to the top rope, Josh pops up, Avalanche Olympic Slam for 2! Josh struggles to try and pick up Bailey, so they have a slow rise as both men are banged up. Bailey pops up with the Straight Kick to the face for a near fall, and we actually hear the 10 minutes remaining call from Penzer.

Ankle Lock again from Josh, but Bailey keeps squirming. Josh Death Rolls with the Ankle and doesn’t want to let go, he’s trying to end this. Bailey tries to stretch up to get out of it, but gets scooped into a Tombstone Piledriver but only another 2 and back into the Ankle Lock! Up Kicks break the submission, Bailey tries to stop Josh from charging back into the corner with a kick, but Josh drivers his knee into Bailey’s leg, drags him back to the center and Grapevine’s the Ankle. Speedball barely manages to claw to the ropes.

Josh tries to climb the corner with Bailey, but Bailey slips down and now he’s trying to get up to Josh but can’t quite muster the energy to get past Josh. Josh keeps clocking and dropping Bailey. Bailey finally powers through the offense, stares down Josh and Avalanche Frankensteiner! Ultima Weapon… connects again but foot on the bottom rope! Flamingo…nope, Styles Clash from Josh into the Ankle Lock again! Bailey grabs the bottom rope and tries to kick Josh away, but Josh finds adrenaline rips Bailey into his arms for an Inverted Piledriver. Josh and Bailey keep struggling as Josh is going for a C4 Spike, 2 C4 Spikes with about 15 seconds left!

 

Overall Score: 9/10

A Western company actually mentioning time remaining, having to bump a “scheduled main event” and dedicate the last hour of the show to literally one match is a little surprising. The show also did try to add credibility to The Design, Savannah Evans got to look impressive and the fact the tag match was interrupted…to no one’s surprise, helped sell the epic main event even harder.

I don’t really have a lot to say aside from that was a hell of a match, and the fact that it was about 15 seconds short of a Broadway is both crazy and almost feels dirty that it didn’t quite get there. But it was great, built off their previous match and was a great endcap to the year both men had as being fighting champions and two bastions of hope of the company in 2022. IMPACT loves to just to clip shows for the last two weeks of the year, so we only have 1 maybe 2 more real episodes before Hard to Kill is around the corner. But hot damn was this match amazing!

The Rock has a message!

“Oh, I know, everybody wants to know what’s happening down in Perth, Australia. It’s gonna be this weekend, right? Is that right? Yeah, The Rock knows when it’s happening, y’know why? Because they kept asking The Rock, ‘Rock, will you go down to Perth? Will ya come down to Perth, Australia?’ Listen, The Rock can’t be there in Perth, he wishes he could be there in Perth, he’s gonna be there in spirit and that’s all that matters. The People’s Champ’s spirit is gonna be there in Perth. But here’s who else is gonna be there in Perth: Grayson Waller, doing the Waller Effect. It’s that show, it’s a big show.

“It’s a big show here in the states, and it’s an even bigger show down there in Australia? Y’know why? Y’know why, Dumbo? Because Australia is his country, it’s his home country, the people are gonna go crazy for him. But here’s what’s happening. Here’s the BS that’s happening now down in Australia. Cody Rhodes and his little girlfriend, Seth Rollins, are gonna go on the Waller Effect. Here’s the thing, I need you, and you, and this goof holding the camera and this one holding the microphone over here, I need all of you guys to make sure that Perth knows this some BS happening.

“And if those guys, meaning Cody and his little girlfriend, Seth, if they start talking trash, let The Rock know. Tell The Rock. Because here’s what’s gonna happen: The Rock is gonna slap the piss out of both of them, just like that. As a matter of fact, if those two talk trash, The Rock will fly down there to Perth before that interview is over and he’ll do it. Don’t wonder why The Rock can make it that quick, The Rock makes magic happen. Do you understand? All right, that’s all The Rock has to say about Perth. Perth, Australia, get ready because the WWE is coming. Let The Rock know if those two jabronies talk trash. IF YA SA-MELLLL~… what The Rock… is cooking.”

Austin Theory is here?

“The 150 Million Hit Man” is in the ring on the set of the Grayson Waller Effect and he welcomes us to Austin Theory Live. The fans boo but Theory says, “G’day, mate!” He wants to talk to Australia about vegemite. It’s DISGUSTING! But that’s just a snack here, right? So then he had a real Australian meal. He had himself a Blooming Onion from Outback Steakhouse! Oh, they don’t like that? Well alright. Then he’ll introduce to us the Moment Maker, the Aussie Icon, Australia’s own, his boy, Grayson Waller! The fans cheer Waller as he makes his entrance, and he sees UFC fighter, Tai Tuivasa, in the crowd.

Waller walks up, they shake hands, and they both get the golden shoes for the Shoey! The fans cheer as Tai chugs it all down, then Waller joins Theory in the ring. Waller takes the mic to welcome us to the Grayson Waller Effect. The fans cheer, and Waller says this might be the greatest day of his life! And he wants us to do one thing before the greatest GWE of all time. “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” “Aussie!” “Oi!” “Aussie!” “Oi!” “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” The fans cheer and Waller says time to get to it. The biggest story in sports entertainment involve his two guests tonight.

First, the World Heavyweight Champion, Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! The fans cheer and sing along as the Visionary makes his entrance, wearing a suit that is purposefully baggy, and also has cords on it. Rollins revels in the singing, which bores Theory, but then Rollins takes a bow. Waller says his second guest is the winner of the 2024 Royal Rumble, “the man who can thank the ineffectiveness of the American education system for not being able to finish a story,” The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes! Cody makes his entrance in a normal suit, and now fans sing with Cody’s song, “WHOA~ OH~!” Cody gets an extra big pyro as he gets in the ring!

Cody and Rollins sit with Waller while the fans chant for Cody. Cody asks Perth, “What do we wanna talk about?” Waller says hold on, this is his show. What HE wants to talk about is to acknowledge their Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. The Tribal Chief appreciates that. But Rollins, Waller doesn’t care about who wins the Chamber, he wants to know who Rollins wants to face. Oh, well, the Chamber is stacked, who knows who wins, but he has a scoop. Oh? Here we go! Yeah, Rollins has an inside track, some secret info. Does Perth wanna know a secret? “YES!” Alright, then. Rollins… is just days away from being medically cleared to compete!

The fans like the sound of that! Rollins says whoever wins the Chamber will get a crack at Rollins’ World Heavyweight Champion. And newsflash: they don’t stand a chance. Because it’s WrestleMania 40, the biggest Mania of all time! The world is gonna sing Rollins’ song, “WHOA~ OHH~ OHHH~!” and Rollins will do what only Rollins can, put on a show like nobody else! Because he is a Visionary, he is a Revolutionary, he is SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! Big pop. Rollins sits back down and Waller says cool story, bro.

Now, Cody, we had the opportunity to have the biggest Mania main event of all time: Roman Reigns VS The Rock. The fans boo and Rollins sticks out his tongue. Waller asks if Cody was being selfish taking that away from the fans. The fans chant “Rocky Sucks! Rocky Sucks!” Cody doesn’t want it twisted, he is a fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. And if The Rock were here, The Rock would probably call Cody a candy ass, prattle on about rooty poo, insult Cody. What is it he calls Cody’s fans again? Waller knows, it’s Cody Crybabies. Theory claps and Cody says yes, Cody Crybabies.

But Cody wants to ask Perth: Are there any Cody Crybabies in here tonight? The fans cheer and Cody wants to double check, the pyro got to his hearing. Are there any Cody Crybabies in here tonight? The fans cheer even louder! Rollins says yes, seems there are. The fans chant for Cody again, and Cody says one thing The Rock wouldn’t wanna talk about is the conversation that led them to this point, why Cody was going to step away from that WrestleMania main event just to step right back in. Waller says hold on, he’s talking about The People’s Champion! Cody does what he’s told. Oh, People’s Champion?

That is a grand and lofty title, one you can’t self-appoint. Maybe at one point, The Rock was The People’s Champ. But to Cody, to be the People’s Champ, you have to actually be around the people! The fans cheer that, and Cody says that while Seth had an announcement, here’s one from Cody. Cody tells The Rock that he indeed slapped Cody across the face. And at WrestleMania 40, Cody faces Roman in the main event. But until then, the card is wide open! So let’s make it official! Cody wants The Rock 1v1, any time, any place!! The fans fire up for that and Rollins stands up to stand with Cody. Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!”

Rollins tells Cody and Perth, let’s cut the head off the snake once and for all! Rollins admires that challenge, but when it comes to The Bloodline, we all know that there is no such thing as 1v1. So if and when The Rock decides to take Cody up on this challenge, just know that Cody won’t be fighting that battle alone. Waller says there you have it! Another scoop on the Grayson Waller Effect, the greatest talk show in WWE! Theory says hold on there. Cody thinks he’s gonna face The Rock? Is that what you think? IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK! Rollins laughs at Theory’s pretty decent Rock imitation.

Yeah, it was good, but here’s more. Finally…! Austin Theory has come to Perth, Australia, to finish his story. Rollins laughs more and says this is good. But hey, does he have the big one? Y’know, the one. Jacket off, show ’em what it’s all about. Theory takes his jacket off, “IF YA SMELLLLL-” Rollins THROWS Theory into the Waller sign! CODY CUTTER! Waller is stunned as Theory is down and out! Waller says okay, fine, and he backs off. Rollins lines up the shot, to CURB STOMP Theory! The Visionary and the American Nightmare show they make a powerful combo, will they be just what the WWE Universe needs to finally The Bloodline’s tyranny?

That was the biggest Riptide ever, and it washes Nia away! With this win, Rhea not only proves she’s the most dominant woman in WWE, but she proves everything she’s done to get here was worth it! Mami gets her pyro and celebrates with her family, but will she have an even bigger moment at WrestleMania 40 facing down The Man?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Elimination Chamber with basically nothing bad to say. Great promo from The Rock that was featured in the Kickoff show, and great Grayson Waller Effect segment for Cody & Rollins to respond. Great beat down of Theory, too, that was fun. Really good Women’s Tag Team Championship match for the Kickoff, though it was clear The Kabuki Warriors were retaining. Indi at least got to perform in her home country, but I don’t feel she and Candice circle back to the titles in time for Mania. Another team probably steps up, or maybe multiple teams, and they’re the ones that face Asuka & Kairi.

Speaking of tag titles, awesome match from Priest & Finn VS “New Catch Republic.” That had some real NXT TakeOver vibes with the near falls and false finishes, but I figured Judgment Day was returning. Given the story with R-Truth, it just seems more fitting that The Awesome Truth steps up and wins big at Mania. And in case you missed it, Truth went to Austria instead of Australia, because he is a comedic genius. I am going to love all the shenanigans and misunderstands Truth has once he and Miz are the Undisputed Tag Team Champions.

Awesome stuff out of both Chamber matches tonight, though WWE always does pretty good with these in my experience. And even though it seemed a bit obvious to me that Becky and Drew were each running the gauntlet in the Chamber, I feel they did a better job disguising things in Drew winning than Becky. Tiffany eliminating Naomi was a good move, as she and Naomi can feud. Tiffany is new to main roster, Naomi has returned to WWE, a feud can help RawDown fans learn/relearn who they are while we get great acrobatic matches out of them. Liv and Bianca being in the final three with Becky also worked, they all have stories involving Rhea, a return to Mania, or both.

As for what Bianca does now without a clear path to Mania, I’m thinking she could get in on that tag title story. She has beef with DMG CTRL, and if Dakota really is on Bayley’s side, maybe Dakota and Bianca can be a team? Not saying they’d win, there’s a chance DMG CTRL makes everyone think Dakota’s still on their side, and that helps DMG CTRL retain, but it’d be good story. And in the Men’s Chamber, I did not expect Styles to screw Knight over like that, and I did not expect Logan to screw over Orton like that. Kevin was great wanting after Logan so badly, and I don’t think their story is over yet, but maybe they add Orton to the mix? A Triple Threat protects all three so that Logan can lose the belt while someone else takes the pin, or Logan is opportunistic and steals a pin to retain.

And of course, an awesome main event. Rhea of course won out but she and Nia did great, really made Rhea look like the underdog champ that then overcame her toughest challenge, and now she’s rolling towards that match with Becky. Both have done so well that Mami VS The Man could go either way, and I wouldn’t be surprised either way. They’re both worthy of the top title, so it really depends on who is set up for the Women’s World Championship for after Mania. Maybe Jade Cargill? That’d be quite the moment on whatever night of Mania to have Jade walk out there and confront the champion and set things up for Backlash in France.

My Score: 9/10
