Andrew’s Impact Wrestling Emergence Results & Match Ratings: 8.27.2023

SANADA returns to Impact Wrestling! The Knockouts Main Event! Johnny Swinger has a legit title shot! Check out what went on at Emergence!

Published

on

I frankly have no clue how this show will shake out. Always weird when one of the marquee matches is a multi-man, most likely, cluster of bodies and spots. SANADA returning to an Impact that isn’t on life support should be fun, Johnny Swinger with a title shot will be an experience and I’m guessing the Knockouts are the main event.

So with a lot of interesting but not exactly fire starting storylines…it should be interesting how this show goes. OH buy Hendry and Yuya debuted their new tag team name on the Countdown show, and its…its glorious. It is the perfect combination of meme garbage and actual humour.

Ratings:

  • NODQ: Eric Young vs Deaner w/Kon: EY wins via Piledriver – ** 1/2
  • Knockouts Tag Team Titles: MK Ultra (Masha Slamovich & Killer Kelly) (c) vs Jody Threat & KiLynn King vs Gisele Shaw & Savannah Evans vs Courtney Rush & Jessicka: MK Ultra retain via Exclamation Point – ** 1/2
  • Digital Media Championship: Kenny King (c) w/Sheldon Jean vs Johnny Swinger: Kenny retains via Royal Flush – ***
  • Tag Team Championship: The Rascalz (Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel) vs SUBculture (Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews) w/Dani Luna (c): The Rascalz win via Treehouse Stomp – *** 1/2 – TITLE CHANGE!!!!
  • Cinematic Killer Kowalski Back to School Match: Eddie Edwards vs Frankie Kazarian: Eddie wins – ***
  • SANADA vs Jake Something: SANADA wins via Dead Fall – *** 1/2
  • Chris Sabin, Josh Alexander, Alex Shelley & Kushida vs Moose, Brian Myers, Bully Ray & Lio Rush: Moose wins via Lights Out – ***
  • Knockouts World Championship: Deonna Purrazzo vs Trinity (c): Trinity retains via Starstruck – *** 1/4

 

Results:

The show opens with graphics and a 10 Bell Salute for Terry Funk and Windham Rotunda. 

NODQ: Eric Young vs Deaner w/Kon

Eric Young comes out in Maple Leafs colors and absorbing the home country advantage. Let’s hope this is the match that ends The Design forever.

EY lands a few quick shots and an early Dive onto Kon, we see Eric trying to even things out immediately. Uses Deaner as a weapon against Kon, grabs a ladder, hits Kon with it and introduces it into the ring. As soon as he does, Deaner turns things around in classic “taking too long” fashion.

Deaner hits the Drop Toe Hold on EY to put him into the ladder, and then Kon tips the ladder towards the outside and EY comes tumbling out of the ring. The Design starts to take full control, grabbing a few more weapons, and EY is on the receiving end of a lot, but manages to fight off the Staple Gun momentarily, but Deaner gouges the eyes and then staples in-between the fingers and under the armpit.

After getting shoved in a trash can and a chair is used to make some music on his head, Kon gets involved again. But EY brought handcuffs, cuffs Kon to the corner post and starts turning things around on Deaner. A few shots, returns the staples in the hand and armpit, then EY scales the ladder, Macho Man Elbow, for only 2! EY looks to Piledrive Deaner through two chairs, but Kon breaks out of the cuffs, approaches the ring, Low Blow from Deaner…and Chokeslam through chairs for 2.

As has become normal in IMPACT hardcore matches, we get a plywood board with barbwire. Kon and Deaner try to set up a tandem move, EY counters Deaner into Kon, then stacks both on his shoulders for a Stacked Death Valley Driver, Piledriver into the barbwire, and EY wins!

Knockouts Tag Team Titles: MK Ultra (Masha Slamovich & Killer Kelly) (c) vs Jody Threat & KiLynn King vs Gisele Shaw & Savannah Evans vs Courtney Rush & Jessicka

Masha and Gisele start, and its fairly close counter wrestling. Dodging rope runs, Snapmares into nothing, and then as they stare down, KiLynn tags herself in and starts overpowering Masha. Masha counters the Powerbomb with a Frankensteiner, then tags in Kelly, and the champions are doing solid work. King manages a Stalling Suplex to finally stifle Kelly’s offense. Courtney breaks the pin, KiLynn starts to walk down Courtney and Jessicka tags herself in. Running Low Crossbody from Jessicka, Savannah blind tags, and then the SHAWntourage have a few quick tags just keeping Kelly in their corner and smothering the position.

Jawbreaker from Kelly rocks Gisele back into an enemy corner and KiLynn tags herself back in. King tries to distract the referee but Jody is too Babyface to cheat, KiLynn tags her in out of annoyance. A little clunky on their next offense, Jody gets hyped up by Death Dollz and she unwittingly goes into their corner to celebrate the solid offense and Courtney tags herself in. Death Dollz look to end the match, Kelly finally manages to get some space, tag in Masha for the hot tag and Masha starts beating all of the asses. Courtney tries a flash Schoolgirl while Masha is taking out Gisele and Jody, but only for two.

MK clear the ring, grab Courtney, Tandem Knee Strikes into their Exclamation Point, and MK Ultra retain!

Digital Media Championship: Kenny King (c) w/Sheldon Jean vs Johnny Swinger

Swinger is playing cat and mouse early on, Kenny chases him out of the ring, on the way back in Swinger kicks the middle rope and then follows it up with a Headbutt to the nards. Kenny fires back a little, Kenny tells Swinger to stay in the middle for the Running Shoulder Tackle spot, but Swinger doesn’t play by those rules. Swinger even pops in the old Mongolian Chops before Kenny catches him with the rotation Power Slam.

Kenny tries for Flying Knees into the corner, but Swinger moves. Short Jabs from Swinger into a Backdrop for 2. Sidewalk Slam from Swinger and then a Slingshot Leg Drop. King powders, Swinger hypes the crowd for a dive, King and Jean move, and then Baseball Slide from Swinger connects. Swingman goes high risk…Jean distracts the referee, but when Jean drops off the apron he crotches Swinger and then Ref Allison ejects Jean.

HEATH OUT OF NOWHERE with the Wake Up Call on King! Swingman goes for the pin…but only 2! We should have a new champion. Swinger goes back to the top, Kenny grabs him off the top and hits the Royal Flush to retain.

Tag Team Championship: The Rascalz (Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel) vs SUBculture (Flash Morgan Webster & Mark Andrews) w/Dani Luna (c)

SUBculture is a fun group, but anyone who has read some of my previous reviews knows I’m a big fan of Wentz. So even though I hate Trey…Wentz needs some gold. Go Rascalz.

Not gonna be a lot to write early, typical Junior style tag antics, with mostly quick counters and eventual tandem moves. Very color by numbers. Finally we get to some heel work where Wentz connects with the PK on Flash’s left shoulder, tags in Trey and Trey starts working on the left arm more. Flash tries to fire, misses on the Moonsault as Wentz knock Mandrews off the apron and then sinks in a Headscissors Kimura. Flash barely gets to the ropes and Rascalz tandem action continues. Trey kicks the Welsh out of Flash’s face, he powders, Trey follows and drops him on the apron, before rolling him back in and slingshotting an opportunistic move.

Wentz tags in, drops the leg and tries to continue but Flash with a quick Cradle, Wentz kicks out, then kicks him in the face. Trey tags back in and Flash finally gets some space and tags in Mandrews for the big comeback. Mandrews does his slide under the Double Clothesline into the Dual Pele Kick, lots of fun offense from Mandrews. Flash gets tagged back in, they kick Trey when he tries to rewind back, Stereo Tope con Hilos have everything rolling for SUBculture.

A lot of Tornado moments, Hot Fire Flame attempt but knees come up and Mandrews comes out of nowhere to hit Wentz with a Destroyer. Eaton Rifle on Trey, but only for 2. Wentz starts fighting Mandrews on the outside, Flash tries to get involved but misses Wentz and hits Mandrews. Hot Fire Flame from the ramp on both members of SUBculture. Trey hits the Webslinger for 2. ABC come down as Trey used the ref distraction to hit some spray paint, so no pinfall. Good Hands also come down, ABC vs Good Hands on the outside, Dani Luna with a big splash to kill the Good Hands. Stun Dog Millionaire into a Swanton Bomb for 1 -2 -…KICK OUT?

Cheeky Nandos from Trey, the top corner Tiger Feint, Reverse Death Valley Stomp finisher! RASCALZ WIN!

Cinematic Killer Kowalski Back to School Match: Eddie Edwards vs Frankie Kazarian

It was a nice cinematic intro, had vibes similar to Gargano and Ciampa (where Ciampa was also trained by Kowalski), and after an alright match, Lish shows up and distracts Frankie enough and Eddie wins. Frankie has this somber moment of reflecting being the failed babyface, and then to break the moment Lish cracks him with a Kendo Stick and Eddie says, “This is for you Walter…” and crashes the framed picture through Frankie’s head. So the match ends with some Kowalski lines being played over a totally defeated Kaz.

A little campy since its still wrestling, but honestly, not bad at all.

SANADA vs Jake Something

SANADA comes out in the Great Muta gear, referencing his Great SANADA time and that X Division title time. Ole Seiya Sanada is back in IMPACT.

SANADA keeps trying to tie up with Jake and Jake keeps shoving him off. They wrestle into the ropes a bit and SANADA decides to pull out his Milano Collection A.T. homage Paradise Lock in the ropes. Then he teases Jake since he can’t move, before landing the Sliding Dropkick to unlock the hold and start taking control on the outside. SANADA looks for a Manhattan Drop, Something rolls off and then runs through SANADA.

Front Headlock from Jake keeps things grounded until SANADA fights up and then eats a back elbow for his trouble. Jake charges, misses and rebound Saito Suplex gives SANADA some breathing room. SANADA goes to the top, misses a Double Axe handle, and as he gathers his balance and turns he eats a Spear from Jake. Powerbomb attempt gets countered by a Destino style counter, tries to start a Skull End, Jake fights it off…Magic Screw from SANADA! Kip Up from SANADA and play time is ovah. TKO gets a near fall. Moonsault for another near fall.

Dead Fall gets countered, SANADA tries to Moonsault into Skull End, but Jake catches and lands the Fire Thunder Driver! They both get up to their feet, Fighting Spirit spot, SANADA lands about a dozen chops and Jake just keeps asking for more. Dead Fall countered again, Jake counters a Frankensteiner by holding on and dead lifting into a Powerbomb for 2! Into the Void counter, Enzuigiri, into Shining Wizard, Dead Fall attempt 3 and Jake just shoves SANADA’s face into the mat. Big Haymaker levels SANADA, Into the Void again, countered with Dead Fall and SANADA wins.

Chris Sabin, Josh Alexander, Alex Shelley & Kushida vs Moose, Brian Myers, Bully Ray & Lio Rush

The heels chop block Sabin early and Rush thinks he’ll have an easy tie, but Sabin fights him off, rocks him so hard he stumbles into the face corner and we get some tandem Time Machine action. Time Splitters team up on Myers and a lot of quick tandem action from the smaller face team. Myers backs off into his corner, Shelley calls out Moose and then Moose calls out Alexander. So we respark the Josh and Moose heat.

Moose gets strung upside in the corner, and Josh does the homage to Petey Williams by…singing the Canadian Anthem in a compromising position. Josh tags in Sabin, Bully trips up Sabin on the ropes allowing Moose to tag out and Bully starts stalking Sabin. People are slugging it out in the ring and then both teams set up tables on their respective sides. A little odd, but since Bully did it first, it seems more like evening the odds.

Sabin has been isolated for a long time, but no real crazy moves of note. Josh does eventually get the hot tag, turns Moose inside out and Lio almost is too quick for Josh, but Josh eventually corrals him and then dumps him with a Suplex. Lio continues to juke and jive even Alex Shelley, Kushida catches him with the Tanaka Punch and then a Baseball Slide to the chest. Machine Guns misfire and Moose starts rolling for the heel team. Moose rocks Josh, looks for a Jacknife but Josh counters, Moose goes for his quick corner climb into the Crossbody but misses and gets caught with the Ankle Lock. Josh transitions the Ankle Lock into a Sharpshooter and Myers hits an elbow drop on the referee. Things break down with the signature spam spots and no referee. MOOSE hits the Uranage through a table! Rush hits the Final Hour on Kushida through the other table! Bully and Moose are teaming up on Shelley, but the lights go out and French Canadian Frankenstein appears!

Myers saves Bully from a Chokeslam through the table with a Low Blow. Now its Myers, Moose and Bully looking to Shield Bomb PCO through A TABLE! But PCO no sells it and sits right back up. Now PCO is eating through Moose and Myers, runs Bully out of the ring…but STEVE FUCKING MACLIN BLINDSIDES PCO! He locks eyes with Jos Alexander and like two dogs who hate each other, Josh goes right after Steve. God this is insanely over booked, but it has been entertaining as hell.

Josh favors his injured arm after Maclin wrapped it in the lighting equipment, Moose grabs him tries a cheap win but Josh kicks out. Then Josh gets shoved into Shelley and Shelley is hot about it. Shelley just walks away tells Josh to figure it out and Moose hits Lights Out for the win from the heel side!

We get a wrinkle in the face versus face match we thought we were getting, and then a promo video of Jordynne Grace returning. 

Knockouts World Championship: Deonna Purrazzo vs Trinity (c)

Gail Kim comes out to join commentary and I for one love that. Gail is the only North American women’s wrestler that I would hold in an all time Top 5. I am a fan of extra thicc main events though. 

Early moves are a little slow, not bad, but the pacing I suppose is because of how over booked the last match was with a return, PCO pop up and home country hero getting pinned. So Deonna eats a Disaster Kick and then powders for a bit. You Glow Girl tries a Flying Headscissors, Deonna stops the momentum and turns it into a Piledriver on the outside. After the piledriver, Trinity is neutralized and she’s eating some grounded strikes and Deonna trying to choke her out with the headlock. Trinity fires, Jawjacker, Double Lariat all fall down spot.

Trinity drops Deonna with the Samoan Drop, looks for her Kip Up but it is a little delayed in an awkward way. Trin does hit a Crossbody but then Deonna starts to string together a few moves, punctuated with a Pump Kick into a near fall for 2. Forward Leg Whip, Pentagon Style Arm Breaker into the Knee Lift, Side Russian, floats into Fujiwara Armbar. Trinity gets to the ropes, as Deonna tries to go into more offense she gets caught with the short Headscissors into the mat; then connects with a Moonsault for 2. Trinity goes back up top, Deonna cuts her off, they fight in the corner, Superplex from Deonna.

Trinity hits an S.O.S., tries to lift her into something after the kick out but Deonna fights back. Then we see Trinity almost sink in Starstruck but she sells the injured arm. Queen’s Gambit attempt but driven into the corner, Deonna charges out, eats a Bully Bomb into the Booty Bridge but only 2. Trin looks for an Avalanche Bully Bomb, Deonna fights off, tries the Fujiwara, but Trinity fights it off and manages to hit the Yoshi Tonic and put Deonna into Starstruck and Deonna loses by submission again!

Show ends with a teaser of Will Ospreay, who will apparently be at Bound for Glory. 

Overall Score: 7/10

Not a bad show, granted I know some of my general hype was dampened because of missing a few shows; but this was solid. Nothing really crazy and felt like a small touch above their old ImpactPlus App Event shows that were mid as hell most of the time. Zachary Wentz finally got some IMPACT gold, Steve Maclin is back, Moose pinning Josh could have main event ramifications for Bound for Glory, JOYA is gonna be my favorite things for a while, and it was nice to see Johnny Swinger actually put on a decent match.

Aside from those, the cinematic match was actually a perfect way to punctuate a feud that wasn’t really hot anymore, but give it a level of significance and SANADA coming back to Impact is nice. Especially since he was here during the dark age of Impact, so now at least people will watch the show with him on it. Even I stopped watch for a few years during that rough period and I was around since the Fox Sports Net days.

So a fun show, should be interesting to see what happens to get us to Victory Road and then Bound for Glory. But I suppose as a lesser event, it did its job. Fun spots, a few returns and nothing so insulting that I was questioning why I was watching the show.

The ultimate Go Home! We are one day away from Against All Odds and The System goes to the Hardy Compound for a face off!

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

  • 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.

https://x.com/i/status/1801412311061516750

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.

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the fans rally. The two approach, Billie dodges the haymaker to BOOT Moone! Billie grins, whips Moone to a corner, then runs in.

Shane Taylor Promotions plans to tear through anyone and everyone in their way to the top of both ROH and AEW. Will they do just that here tonight? Or will HE, Jacoby, finally lead the Wrecking Ball to a victory?

Comoroto starts for his team, as he has before, and offers a handshake for the Code of Honor. Lee Moriarty starts and just gets in Comoroto’s face. Comoroto does his best to smile and shrug that off, and the two circle. They feel things out, but Lee KICKS a leg. Comoroto shrugs that off, too, and the two circle more. Fans chant “S, T, P! S, T, P!” Lee KICKS, applauds, and dares Comoroto to take a swing. Comoroto does, Lee avoids it, but then Comoroto blocks a kick! So Lee KNEES free! Lee fires up, runs, and forearms Comoroto, but Comoroto HEADBUTTS Lee down! Comoroto applauds and the fans join in.

Comoroto trophy lifts Lee, does some quick pumps, then SLAMS Lee down! Tag to Jacoby and this is the first time we’ve seen him do anything in weeks! Jacoby FLAPJACKS Lee off the apron, but then asks for a microphone? Jacoby says, “My friends, my followers, my faithful flock right here in Las Vegas, Nevada, praise be to HE! And HE is ME.” The fans boo instead. Jacoby goes back to Lee, puts him in, and tags Comoroto. Wow, that was all? Comoroto wrenches Lee, Lee kicks free, and he tags in Shane! The fans fire up for Big Bad Shaney T. Boy, and he steps to Comoroto. Shane SLAPS Comoroto!

Fans chant “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” as Shane eggs Comoroto on. Comoroto shoves Shane, Shane shoves back, and they RAM shoulders! Shane nods, runs, and RAMS Comoroto! “MEAT!” Comoroto RAMS back! “MEAT!” Shane JABS, eggs Comoroto on, so Comoroto runs in! Shane throws Comoroto out! Jacoby encourages Comoroto, and the fans fire up, too! Comoroto skins the cat! But then Shane is there, to bob ‘n’ weave and HEADBUTT! And URENAGE! And SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Comoroto is still in this but Shane tags Lee. Lee runs to BOOT Jacoby, but that upsets Comrooto! Comoroto CLOBBERS Lee, BLASTS Shane, then scoops Lee!

Comoroto spins and SLAMS Lee, runs up and JUMP ELBOW DROPS! The fans fire up with Comoroto, and he says “Save us, Jacoby~!” Comoroto runs in at the corner to SPLASH, then Jacoby tags in! POWERSLAM, Jacoby takes the pin, TWO!! Lee survives because Jacoby took too long, and now Jacoby tags Comoroto back in. Lee runs up to SHOTGUN Jacoby! Comoroto is mad again, and he scoops Lee. Lee slips free, tags Shane, and then baits Comoroto in! BUCKLE SHOT! Shane waits on Comoroto to get up, and then KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

Lee takes Jacoby’s cowboy hat to do a dance, then throws it away. Will ROH soon belong to STP from top to bottom?

 

Johnny TV & Taya Valkyrie speak.

La Wera Loca says over the course of the last year and a half, yes, she has had wins and losses, faced some of the best women in the world, and has nothing but respect for each and every one. But one is just… getting under her skin! Queen Aminata~! Queen? So she gave herself a crown? You can’t do that! Aminata’s not a real queen! Taya earned the iconic title of Reina De Reinas (Queen of Queens), earned the nickname “Ratings Queen,” and earned the nickname, “The Main Character.” Aminata is a fraud! And quite annoying. So it doesn’t matter that Aminata beat Taya in the tournament, this is a warning.

Taya will wipe that smug smile off Aminata’s face, and kick that ass off her throne! Watch your back. Johnny says nice one. Mr. & Mrs. TV are ready, but will Aminata just have to beat Taya again?

Well, they’re in Las Vegas, so ROH sees last week’s Trios Triple Threat and raises it another trio! It’s a Dirty Dozen in Sin City, but who will hit the jackpot on these 25% odds?

The Peacock argues with the Murderhawk Monster, but then steps down as the teams sort out.

Action brings Alex over, tags in Darius, and Darius takes the handoff to wrench. Darius whips, Alex reverses, but Darius turns arm-drag into backslide, ONE! Alex runs up, into the arm-drag! Darius has the armlock, then he wrenches. Tag to Dante, he CLUBS an arm and snapmares Alex down, for Darius to basement dropkick the arm! The fans cheer, Dante covers, ONE!

The two reset and go again. Marina trips Leyla to a cover, ONE! Leyla goes to sweep but Marina jumps over! Marina pats little Leyla on the head, but that pisses Leyla off!

ROH World Tag Team Championships Proving Grounds: The Kingdom VS Bad Dude Tito & Che Cabrera!

Matt Taven & Mike Bennett are the only ones in the Undisputed Kingdom still holding gold, and they’ve gotta put in the work to prove they’re still worthy. Will they make sure ROH stays their kingdom? Or will the #WolfZaddies be howling to the moon as they take a bite out of the champs?

The teams sort out, Mike starts against Tito and the Code of Honor is kept. The bell rings, we’re on the clock, and Tito is all fired up. They tie up, Mike headlocks, but Tito squeezes tight before he powers out. Mike RAMS Tito, Tito asks if that’s all he’s got. Mike ROCKS Tito and headlocks him!

Taven goes up, Mike reels Tito in, HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall (denies the Wolf Zaddies a title opportunity)

Taven says this belt is his girl, he makes love to it every night! No one takes Taven’s girl from him! Mike says it doesn’t matter who you put against them, The Kingdom IS the best tag team in the world! But will there come a time when a tag team does come along and takes these titles away from them? Or will these titles always be undisputed?


My Thoughts:

A very good ROH here with it clocking in at an hour and 11 minutes. Surprisingly little on the promo side, with just Taya calling out Aminata for a match. Taya will definitely lose to build Aminata up towards her title match with Athena, which probably happens at Death Before Dishonor. Billie and Velvet each have momentum going into their inevitable TV title match, and it was great to see Moone back after her tournament appearance. And good Six Woman Tag, real good teamwork from the Heels in getting the win. Also, didn’t realize until double checking on Windsor’s finisher name, she is Will Ospreay’s wife, the “missus” he refers to so often.

Good tag match from Shane Taylor Promotions VS Comoroto & Watts, and of course STP won out. The whole story of Comoroto & Watts is their dysfunction because Watts puts himself above everything. But I do like that Watts is getting more and more involved as the weeks go by, so maybe at some point, Watts actually does do something meaningful in a match. Maybe. I’m a bit surprised Adora lost to Harley but I suppose Harley’s been losing plenty on AEW, she has to get something at some point.

Great stuff in the Trios Fatal 4. Castle joining up with The Infantry was certainly fun, but I was a little surprised Action & Top Flight won. This does help them keep pace with Shane Taylor Promotions as that rivalry gets going via AEW, but I thought Dark Order was gonna be the ones to get going again. Well, there’s still time before Death Before Dishonor, so they can hold many other matches to determine #1 contenders. And while The Wolf Zaddies got a good showing against The Kingdom, of course The Kingdom won the Proving Grounds match. The story, slow moving as it is, will of course be Menard & Parker getting their shot, probably at Death Before Dishonor, and there’s still a good chance The Kingdom retains. Depends on if TK cares about The Undisputed Kingdom’s story where Adam Cole wants Wardlow to protect all their titles. Feels like that moment passed, to be honest.

My Score: 8.6/10
