Andrew’s Impact Wrestling Results & Match Ratings: 11.9.2023

Two Championship matches tonight! Digital Media Champ Tommy Dreamer defends again Crazzy Steve and World Champion Alex Shelley defends against Jonathan Gresham!

Published

on

UK Tour lead to an interesting Turning Point. Simon Miller’s gimmicky as hell match (but still fun), a few really solid matches, Will Ospreay and Eddie Edwards putting on a great match; night ending with some great words from the Billy Goat. Now we see if the Gail Kim Eat Da Feet leads to more, what Deonna will do now that she can’t challenge for the Knockouts Title, Trey Miguel and Rich Swann probably still have beef…either way, lots of room to tell stories and grow into 2024 and the return of TNA.

We’ve got two title matches tonight, but no real idea on where things will go from here. So lets see what tonight brings us!

Ratings:

  • Tasha Steelz vs Deonna Purrazzo: Tasha wins via Okurrr – *
  • Digital Media Championship: Tommy Dreamer (c) vs Crazzy Steve: Steve wins via DQ – ** – Dreamer sadly retains
  • Brian Myers vs Joe Hendry: Myers wins via Roster Cut – ***
  • Eddie Edwards w/Alisha Edwards vs Eric Young: EY wins via Piledriver – **
  • Dirty Dango & Oleg Prudius w/Alpha Bravo vs Nick Diamond & Storm Grayson: Dango wins via Scorpion Deathdrop – Squash
  • World Championship: Alex Shelley (c) vs Jonathan Gresham: Shelley retains via Shellshock – *****

 

Results:

Tasha Steelz vs Deonna Purrazzo

The catch is catch can start is honestly just Deonna doing things and Tasha getting out. Deonna even pulls out the Paradise Lock after Tasha twerks a little when she counters, and then we go into a few seconds of Deonna twerking to mock Tasha while she recovers from eating the Dropkick unlock of the Paradise Lock.

This is just a lot of the slow pose after a sequence, taunt one another that they were close to ending it and then finally we get a strike exchange that ends with both succumbing to stereo Lariats. While the concept is fine, Tasha isn’t known as a technical wrestler, they’re both more well known as heels and they’re doing like the playful technical babyface spots. So honestly, this match has made no sense. Deonna hits the Russian Leg Sweep into the Fujiwara but Tasha counters. Tasha then hits the Satellite into the Rings of Saturn, Deonna gets out of it, Tasha finally breaks the hold with a rake to the eyes. So finally heel stuff happens, they complain at each other but Tasha lights up Deonna and catches her with two intense Okurrrs with a burst of fierocity out of…nowhere.

This match was complete nonsense.

Digital Media Championship: Tommy Dreamer (c) vs Crazzy Steve

HEY TNA, do me a favor. When we restart the brand….STOP PUTTING TOMMY DREAMER IN MATCHES. If this devolves into a retirement match or something for Dreamer, fine. But seriously, stop shoving Dreamer at us, bring back Kid Kash, Blue Meanie or Joel Gertner if you want ECW chants. STOP with the Dreamer stuff.

The match starts out a little rough and quick with a tie up that turns into a joint powder, some brawling, then Dreamer tries to rain down 10 count punches but Steve bites his thigh. Steve sings his “Angel of Death” dark lullaby, clubs on Dreamer, DDT into a Neck Twist, then pulls at his face in the ropes before the referee forces the break. Steve goes to the top rope but Dreamer cuts him off, Superplex for the both “slow to get up” spot. Rising haymakers from both, Dreamer gets the best of things with his Flip Flop and Fly. Two Bionic Elbows into a Scorpion Deathdrop for 2. Dreamer Driver, nope, Spicolli Driver is blocked with biting and gouging at the eyes. Cannonball into the corner from Senor Crazzy.

Steve walks out to his briefcase muttering “I have to end you”, and reveals the fork from his briefcase. Steve tries to stab his face, Dreamer blocks, bites the wrist, but eats a Cutter. Dreamer picks up the fork, “Fork You”, forks Steve in the face and the referee Disqualifies Dreamer. Dreamer then keeps gouging at the head wound.

So unfortunately Dreamer is still champ, so maybe we’ll just get some kind of Fork on a Pole, murder the loser match or something by Hard to Kill or maybe even Final Resolution.

Brian Myers vs Joe Hendry

Hendry begins the rebrand early saying that Myers is no longer “Edge’s Bitch”, he’s “Adam’s Bitch”. So when the match starts, Myers starts off hot since he’s grumpy that the crowd supported picking on him with the rebrand. Scoop Slam from Myers, Roster Cut attempt, but he eats the European Uppercut and then Hendry throws him over the top to rub salt in the wound about the Gauntlet.

Bouncing his head off the apron, Hendry keeps up the pressure, brings things back in and keeps Myers grounded with a few Arm Wringer Takedowns. Myers tries to powder after but Hendry hits the Vertical Suplex outside in from the apron. Spinning Scoop Slam into a Rope Run Elbow Drop for 2. Hendry tries to keep up the pressure but the Drop Toe Hold from Myers finally gives him some offense, as he continues that with a Russian Leg Sweep for 2. Myers decides to paint brush Hendry a few times and mock him, so of course the babyface fires back up. Trust Fall into his Chant Chops, Stalling Suplex, but only a 2 count. Myers powders again, but Hendry collects him and tries to follow up but Myers cuts him off and then tosses him into the post and off the apron.

Sleeper Hold from Myers gets countered as Hendry stands up, turns Myers around and just Suplexes him off of him. Back to back Lariats, catches the Crossbody and then Sack of Shits in triplicate for only another 2 count. Myers with a desperation Gamengiri, into the Implant DDT for 2. They raise up, Myers thinks about his next move but Hendry shoves him into the ropes and hits the Pop Up Powerbomb. Standing Ovation counter, Myers guards in the ropes, pokes the eye and then Roster Cut out of nowhere. Myers wins!

Eddie Edwards w/Alisha Edwards vs Eric Young

Early on there’s just some general back and forth but nothing crazy, EY hits the Flair Flop into sliding back into the ring under the ropes, through Eddie’s legs, and a little more back and forth until Lish makes her presence felt for the first time picking the ankle. Eddie takes the opportunity to hit a bit Overhead Belly to Belly and just start beating on EY. Eddie brings him to the ropes, drapes EY, distracts the ref and then Lish chokes EY while the ref isn’t looking. An attempted fire moment for EY is stifled with a big Back Elbow, so Eddie is still very in control.

Scoop Slam from Eddie, he plays to the crowd a bit too long as they Boo at him, goes for the Moonsault and misses big. EY hits a few moves, Scoop Slam of his own, EY calls for the Macho Elbow but Lish distracts him for Eddie to get up. Eddie tries to cut him off, but EY bites his face, then hits the Elbow for 2. EY calls for the Piledriver, Lish hops on the apron to distract EY and it works. Eddie hits a desperation Blue Thunder Bomb for 2. Lish slides the chair in to Eddie, Ref is distracted dealing with the chair, Lish hops up again, swings the Kendo Stick but misses EY and hits Eddie. EY then hits his Piledriver for the win as Lish is seen apologizing over top of a down Eddie.

Dirty Dango & Oleg Prudius w/Alpha Bravo vs Nick Diamond & Storm Grayson

Vladimir Kozlov and Dango get to go against some local jobbers since its Kozlov’s first real match in over a decade.

Dango lets Oleg start and Dango walks off to do guest commentary as Oleg is murdering people. Standing Fireman’s Carry Slam, Sack of Shit, then he headbutts some dork out of the sky. Dango walks back to the ring, tags in after Oleg murdered some people and Dango wins with the Scorpion Deathdrop.

Solid enough way to get over Oleg being a monster again.

World Championship: Alex Shelley (c) vs Jonathan Gresham

Gresham offers the hand and Shelley slaps it away after Gresham’s recent usage of dirty tactics. Gresham pushes Alex into the corner, slow break but Gresham tries to hit him, Shelley ducks it to reverse the spot and Shelley just gives him the Sign of the Cross as a taunting clean break. Early commercial break as we come back, Shoulder Tackle and then a chop spot. Gresham is overselling the chops, tries to ask for a second, takes off some wrist tape to distract the referee as he feints the chop and Jimmy Taps Alex Shelley. Then he uses his loose tap to choke Shelley, and starts working Shelley over on the mat eventually locking in a Figure Four.

It takes over 30 seconds, Shelley grabs the ropes and Gresham says he’s stuck, but uses the extra time to keep wrenching on the knee. The ref gets in Gresham’s face and he goes full Tom and Jerry with motioning a halo around his head and acting like he’s gonna go after the ref until he turns and then tries to look innocent. This has really just been Gresham’s true coming out party for being a shitty cheating heel. Shelley finally fires up a bit, Arm Wringer, short Elbow and now a few chops into an Elbow Hyper Extension but Gresham stops it with a Sleeper. Shelley fights out, but Gresham turns it into a Knee Breaker working on the left knee he already Figure Four’d. Another Knee Breaker, Grounded Dragon Screw on the bad leg, and then he starts thinking again. Gresham uses his body to shield the wrist tape cheating from the referee and wrestles Alex down to keep the shield.

Shelley counters out, then gets into a Grounds Armlock, manipulates the fingers and then drives his knee into Gresham’s shoulder blades. Straight Jacket Bow and Arrow from Alex, but then Shelley sells the knee as he tries to fire. Classic Dragon Screw from Gresham on the bad leg to get the momentum back. Gresham turns Shelley over on the mat and just starts ramming his knee into the mat over and over again. Knee Breaker again, but Shelley sneaks in a Right Knee Strike to rock Gresham. Gresham responds with a low Dropkick as Shelley tries to limp to the corner. Corner flourish from both which ends with Shelley hitting a Stun Gun on Gresham, but Gresham slides out and grabs the bad knee. Alex tries to go after the left arm to relieve some of the pressure, and just throws his body over the top in a Plancha to wipe out Gresham.

Alex breaks the count once, they keep going back and forth on the outside. Gresham charges, misses and eats the post. Shelley lands a DDT, they get to a 9 count and Shelley tries to get both back in. Gresham charges the ropes, kicks the leg, DDT, and then three covers in a row, even with tights, but Shelley kicks out. Shelley White Boy Dances to dodge the Sliding Dropkick on the bad leg, baits Gresham to the corner, Flatliner into the middle buckle, Tornado DDT floated through into the Border City Stretch….Gresham grabs the official and uses the ref to pull himself towards the ropes. Gresham lands multiple chops on the bad leg, Shelley tries to grab the left arm but Gresham goes for the left leg, Enzuigiri partially connects, Misawa Rolling Elbow into a Border City-counters into a Rolling Cradle for 2. Knee Smash, Leg Extension, School Boy with extra leverage from Gresham for 2! They exchange strikes on the limbs they’ve weakened through the match.

Arm Snap from Shelley, Chop on the bad leg from Gresham, Shelley tries to hit the ropes but the leg gives out again. Moonsault, into a Dive, rolls him back in, Locomotion Cradles, no one wins, La Magistral attempt from Shelley, no back and forth Cradles continue and still no pinfall. Japanese Clutch from Gresham no, Border City – No, Gresham locks in a Figure Four as he barely gets to the ropes. A few chops, Gresham tosses him to the ropes but Shelley falls, Superkick from Shelley as he was baiting him a bit, SHELLSHOCK! ALEX SHELLEY RETAINS!

Overall Score: 7.75/10

Okay there’s a lot to love here. Myron Reed joining the Rascalz officially is awesome, the main event was stellar, Kozlov having his first match in over a decade and looking awesome was great and Santino’s way of messing with Kenny King was funny as well. Hell I even personally really like the idea of Moose trying to prove himself by protecting Myers by forcing Heath to go through him before touching “Adam’s Bitch”. Sets up for a slightly bigger moment when one of them eventually turns on the other.

Only really awful thing was the Tasha vs Purrazzo match. From a television wrestling perspective it makes absolutely no sense. It felt very indie stupid bullshit where even though they are both known as asshole heels they have a playful technical match. And then Tasha winning because she actually remembered she was a heel was dumb. Yeah I get it, Deonna is either phasing out or needing a whole breakdown to build back up, and Tasha is back so she needs momentum. Sure I get THAT, but the story of the match made less sense than Mush Mouth from Fat Albert.

Either way this was a good episode to respark interest toward Final Resolution and to get those TNA vibes flowing.

Greg DeMarco’s Good, Bad, & Ugly: LA Knight Challenging Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel

LA Knight is getting his moment on the biggest stage & many are split. Greg DeMarco takes a Good, Bad, & Ugly look at this step in Knight’s career!

Published

on

LA Knight Roman Reigns Good Bad Ugly

LA Knight is getting his moment on the biggest stage, and many are split. Greg DeMarco takes a Good, Bad, & Ugly look at this step in Knight’s career!

WWE makes it’s semi-annual trip to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia this weekend for what is often a very polarizing event among the dedicated followers of the product. This time around, the main event itself is equally polarizing at LA Knight will challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

So it the decision to put LA Knight in this match Good, Bad, or Ugly? Let’s analyze!

Good

LA Knight has become the megastar he says he is, and that megastar is headlining one of WWE’s cash-cow events by challenging Roman Reigns in Saudi Arabia. His promos with Roman have done huge numbers on social media. He’s selling tons of merchandise. Fans are finishing his sentences–everybody truly is saying “L! A! KNIGHT! YEAH!”

Roman Reigns ONLY does big matches. His stage is ALWAYS the grandest stage. There is no substitute for the Tribal Chief, he truly sits at the Head Of The Table in WWE. To be in the ring with him in ANY capacity is beneficial. That alone right there is a huge bit of “Good” in this for LA Knight.

But LA Knight has also gotten the better of Roman Reigns in their exchanges. As they nearly always do, he’s being presented as a legitimate threat to “the longest reigning champion in modern WWE history.” And with Solo Sikoa making the trip to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it is likely that Roman isn’t retaining without some assistance.

Again, GOOD for LA Knight.

LA Knight calls himself the megastar of WWE (as does commentary), but this booking proves it.

BAD

So with all that, what could possible be bad about it? Well quite simply…the man ain’t winning! There’s no way he’s winning. That is reserved for Cody Rhodes at either WrestleMania 40 or WrestleMania 41 (if they decide to have Roman break Hogan’s 1474  day reign–which they should and probably will).

That’s bad. LA Knight is simply another win for Roman Reigns in a long line of challengers have fallen short in their bid to unseat the Tribal Chief. Short of a last minute injury or movie deal, it’s a virtual lock that LA Knight is walking out of Crown Jewel with the same number of championships he had when he walked in: ZERO.

UGLY

Then there’s the ugly side of all this. And there are two major “ugly” items.

First off, he’s part of Roman Reigns’ defenses in 2023, arguably the worst year of Roman’s 1000+ day sting atop the mountain in WWE. Roman’s appearances have decreased in frequency. His title defenses have dramatically dropped. Between RawAfterMania and now, everything he’s done has been contained within the bubble of The Bloodline. His entire 2023 has been Bloodline related outside of the LA Knight program and half of the Cody Rhodes program. That…is ugly.

Then there’s the fact that LA Knight’s moment in the sun comes under the Saudi Arabian sun. The “Jam In The Sand” events for WWE still have a dark cloud over them, one that many fans have a hard time reconciling. To many, these events still don’t “feel good.” Even though tourism authorities have provided subsidies for WWE to bring it’s brand to Wales and Puerto Rico, this is still different.

And while a good bit of fans have stopped boycotting these events (mainly because they are consequential in the storytelling world of WWE), there are plenty who still stand by their decision to avoid these. There’s a bad taste associated with these events, and LA Knight is now inseparably linked to that.

The Verdict

There are legitimate reasons for any one of the three possible answers here, but I have to go with “Good.” LA Knight is challenging Roman Reigns for the most important championship in all of wrestling in front of a huge crowd of fans at a major WWE event. Even in a loss, his profile will continue to be raised. LA Knight’s Road To WrestleMania and winning the United States Championship from Logan Paul will roll on.

There are sdeep Bad and Ugly factors to overcome, but overcome is all LA Knight has done. When he walked into NXT with the full Eli Drake character in-tact, it DID NOT get over. NAH NAH!

The NXT audience immediately rejected LA Knight. He didn’t fit in at all. But he didn’t stop. He believed in his character and believed in his abilities, and it worked. “WHAT?” chants became “YEAH!” chants. He became a huge star, and got called up to the main roster!

…where he was transformed into Max Dupri …and managed the Maximum Male Models. Those two guys? Amazingly talented but no longer with the company. All that remains is Maxxine Dupri, and she’s found great footing with The Alpha Academy, which has even grown to four with the addition of Akira Tozawa.

But Max Dupri played his role to the fullest, and it led to an opportunity to become LA Knight again. And what happened over time? It got over! He was undeniable. And his success was inevitable.

Many situations in pro wrestling have Good, Bad, and Ugly elements to them. The performer, and the performance, will dictate the outcome. And LA Knight has taken every situation and made it good.

This will be no different.

Andrew’s Impact Wrestling Results & Match Ratings: 9.7.2023

999th episode of IMPACT! Victory Road on Friday and 1000th episode next week!

Published

on

Personal issues pop up to delay this, but we need to have somewhat consistent IMPACT coverage; especially with the 1000th episode next week! Victory Road is later today, so we’ve got a few finishing touches for that show and get to see where some of the stories could go for Bound for Glory.

Time to get into IMPACT!

Ratings:

  • Deonna Purrazzo vs Dani Luna: Deonna wins via Fujiwara Armbar – ** 1/2
  • Champagne Singh & Shera vs JOYA (Joe Hendry & Yuya Uemura): JOYA wins via One Hit Wonder – **
  • SUBculture (Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster) vs Rich Swann & Sami Callihan: Swann wins via 450 Splash – ***
  • Lio Rush vs Kevin Knight: Lio wins via Final Hour – *** 1/4
  • Bully Ray & Steve Maclin vs PCO & Josh Alexander: Bully wins via School Boy – ** 1/4

 

Results:

Deonna Purrazzo vs Dani Luna

Usually Dani is just the third during SUBculture tag matches, so while it may not be her debut match, its not something we’ve seen often.

Slow collar and elbow tie ups, standing switches and different headlock and takedown attempts; but nothing of great note. After Deonna gets the first takedown that goes nowhere since its against the ropes, she tries to get a little cocky and Dani scoops her up in a Slam and works more of a power game. Deliberate Sliding Lariats, Three Amigos Suplexes stopped at 2, Dani manages to get Deonna to apron but not over for the third amigo. They start to go back and forth on the apron, but an Arm Wringer takedown sends Dani face first into the apron.

Deonna uses a few Straight Jacket takedowns, Backstabbers and Dani only gets room to breathe after a desperation Drop Kick. Stacked Powerbomb from Dani, but she’s visibly selling the arm when Deonna kicks out. Luna Landing attempt, Deonna slips it, Yakuza into a Side Salto Suplex. Queen’s Gambit attempt, but Cradle counter, Spinning Elbow; but Deonna absorbs it, rocks Dani back, hits the ropes and transitions into a Fujiwara finish.

Oh for Christ sakes, Tommy Dreamer gives another promo where he’s crying and talking about his parents. I hope he loses against Kenny King and is forced to retire. I’m so sick of crying Dreamer promos and below average matches that plod along. 

Champagne Singh & Shera vs JOYA (Joe Hendry & Yuya Uemura)

Yuya and Champagne start and its mostly basic action with a few JOYA pops for Yuya until Champagne hits the Stun Gun on the top rope and tags in Shera. Shera powers him over, bullies him into the corner, tags in Champagne and some running corner spots keep Yuya reeling. Yuya fights back against Singh, tags in Hendry and Joe starts to clean house.

Hendry tries to start Forever Lariats, but Shera and Champagne put the brakes on that, Yuya gets Shera out of the ring, Release Fireman’s Carry into a Cutter, called The One Hit Wonder, wins that match for JOYA!

IMPACT Flashback Moment: Gail Kim vs Awesome Kong, Final Resolution 2008

SUBculture (Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster) vs Rich Swann & Sami Callihan

The most recent former Tag Champs versus a team of two former World Champions. Gotta wonder if SUBculture will continue to slide further from the belts or if they get a solid spring board off of two former World champs.

Mandrews and Rich are mostly matching each other, they even do the stupid Simultaneous Dropkick spot. Mandrews gets Rich into his corner with some of the quick inconsequential offense, tags in Webster and then its Rich’s turn to move things to his corner and tag in Callihan.

Webster tries a Shoulder Tackle off the ropes, but Callihan doesn’t budge and rakes the eyes. DeathSwann tries a tandem move but SUBculture moves and knocks DeathSwann out of the ring. Big Senton from Webster as the commercial break hits. Off the commercial, SUBculture is still using some tandem spots to work over Rich for a 2 count.

Swann and Webster are legal, Swann tries to fire up and Webster Dropkicks him in the teeth for his troubles. Mandrews gets tagged in and tries to keep Rich grounded, but again, Rich fires and eats a Back Suplex as Webster tags in. So SUBculture keeping really good tag team basics, but Rich starts fighting out of the corner, flashing those feet to whoever he can, and tags Sami back in. Sami hits his Flatline/DDT combo on both men and looks in charge.

Tandem Vertical Suplex into a Falcon Arrow gives SUBculture the near fall. Sami clocks both guys, tries to isolate Mandrews but eats Stun Dog Millionaire for his troubles. Webster gets tagged in, both lay each other out and dual tags. Sami punches Mandrews in the face, Rich runs down the ramp and hits a Slingshot Cutter. They go into their Death Valley Driver/450 Splash combo for the win!

Lio Rush vs Kevin Knight

Early on speed kills kind of opening, Lio tries to run him around in circles, but Knight shows he can keep up, feigns a strike and then Dropkicks Lio out of the ring. Lio tries to grab his title and leave but Knight grabs him by the dreads and pulls him back into the ring. Knight is smothering Lio, while Lio isn’t totally taking the challenge seriously.

Lio gets a sneaky punch on the outside which rocks Knight, and Lio slides back in to make distance. Lio lands a few quick kicks and dodges one corner attack, but Lio is getting rocked shortly after. Lio gets a little ref shield and starts to take over. Eye Rake, dodge against the ropes so Knight slips through the ropes and ends up on the Apron, Backhand Spring knocks Knight down, and 3 Suicide Dives even out the momentum.

After the commercial, Lio is still beating on Knight. Raking the face, big hammer fists across the face, and keeping Knight on the ground. Lio tries to sink in the Sleeper, Knight fights up to his feet and slams Lio into the corner. Lio tries to kick Knight back and pop to the top rope, but as soon as he hits the top rope, Knight plucks him off with a quick Frankensteiner. Two big Lariats, Stinger Splash and Top Rope Splash from Knight gives him a 2 count. Knight was setting up his DDT but gets Paintbrushed after the counter. Lio hits the ropes and Knight hits a Diving Forearm right as Lio is turning. Both men are throwing variations of Haymakers, Lio dodges a Springboard Crossbody, Sweeping Spin Kick from Lio into Final Hour; and Lio Rush wins!

Now its no surprise I dislike most of Alisha’s wrestling, but her winning the Battle Royal was perfect heel tactics and…Trinity might be one of the best to fight Alisha. Not because I think Trinity is like Manami Toyota, but given she’s from WWE – she understand matches where gimmicks will probably drive the action more than the wrestling. Deonna was her wrestling opponent, Alisha is Sports Entertainment. 

OKAY I don’t love contract signings but when Alisha insults Santino’s accent while her own Boston accent is cliché strong. So again, De-Lisha can cut solid promos and I enjoy the persona she’s working with. Trinity turns the accent line around very nicely after being goaded by Alisha, and like I said, Trinity gets it. A “Boston Sucks” chant starts in the Canadian crowd. Trinity calls Eddie “Mr. Alisha” so Lish throws her drink in her face, then an Overhead Kick clocks Lish and they do the classic Signing Brawl. Trinity looks to put Lish through the table, but Eddie grabs Trinity and Blue Thunder Bombs her through the table instead. 

Bully Ray & Steve Maclin vs PCO & Josh Alexander

Bully doesn’t want to interact with PCO, so when PCO tells Josh he wants to start when he sees Bully start, Bully tags out of course. Commercial Break kicks in early while PCO is stomping a mudhole in Maclin, but when we get back Josh is legal. Josh wrestling Maclin down, tags in PCO and the ole Double Clothesline has Maclin reeling.

PCO gets distracted with Bully so Maclin takes a small advantage but a right hand from PCO puts the brakes on that. Well good psychology with Maclin going after the left arm and Josh selling it. Not only is it the surgically repaired one, but Maclin damaged it in the lighting truss when he returned. Bully tags in now that Josh is softened up a little, but Josh has that Never Say Die mentality. Josh drops Bully on the apron, goes for his Low Crossbody but Maclin low bridges the other side and Josh spills out clutching his arm.

Maclin keeps Josh isolated, Bully tags in and almost immediately loses the advantage. Bully gets suplexed, Josh tags in PCO and Bully tags out as fast as he can. Josh eats a cheap shot, but PCO is working over Maclin with some ease. Guillotine Leg Drop to the back of the neck, PCO dives at Bully and Maclin, Bully runs away and leaves Maclin to eat it alone. Bully tries to talk to “Carl”, PCO doesn’t care, goozles Bully, Maclin attacks from the blind side, PCO swings wildly, Maclin ducks, the ref ALMOST gets hit but cowers anyway, Bully hits the Low Blow while the ref is cowering, then a School Boy Roll Up means Bully and Maclin win!

Overall Score: 7/10

Honestly, decent enough matches, solid work towards the matches at Victory Road, and not a bad show. I kinda liked Wentz alluding to the fact their match will have interference, Lish and Trinity could be more fun than expected and Lio has been winning me over in this Impact run. Aside from that, it will be nice to see Jordynne Grace back, Dango is amusing and finally getting Maclin vs Alexander is nice.

The show was good, Victory Road should keep that momentum going and then 1000th episode right after that. So we should be looking at some fun stuff for Impact Wrestling before Bound for Glory.
