Impact’s Under Siege event on the Impact Plus app is right around the corner for May 15. Several matches were added, and two #1 contenders were determined tonight on Impact Wrestling (May 13, 2021).
Petey Williams, Acey Romero, TJP, Rohit Raju, Ace Austin, and NJPW’s El Phantasmo were tossed together for a #1 contender X-Division scramble. The match was hectic and crazy with flips, kicks, an official Canadian Destroyer, and Phantasmo walking the top rope for a Death Valley Driver to the outside onto bodies below. The conclusion came down to Phantasmo countering Williams to win with a double hammerlock inverted back to belly forward slam.
Bullet Club member Phantasmo becomes the #1 contender for the X-Division. He’ll get his opportunity to take gold from champion Josh Alexander at Under Siege. This will be NJPW’s chance to win another title from Impact. NJPW’s FinJuice are the current Impact tag champs.

Deonna Purrazzo’s next challenger emerged as well on Impact Wrestling. Havok and Rosemary wrestled to determine the #1 contender for the Knockouts Championship at Under Siege. The two women engaged in a slugfest. Havok escaped an inverted headlock to counter with a tombstone piledriver for victory.
After the match, Purrazzo attacked Havok. When Havok got the upper hand, the champ changed her mind and tried to escape. However, Rosemary made sure to send Purrazzo back into the ring so Havok could send a message with a tombstone piledriver. Havok is ready for her shot to take the Knockouts title.
