Hype video for Petey vs. Eli. Eli says that Petey may be better sticking in the X Division.

Taiji Ishimori, Trevor Lee, & Caleb Konley vs. Dezmond Xavier, Garza Jr., & Sonjay Dutt

Ishimori came out with a mask with horns on it. (He doesn’t wrestle in it.)

Dutt played face in peril for most of the time. He finally tags out to Garza, who rips off his pants but soon tags in Dezmond Xavier. Ishimori looks to have Xavier where he wants to, perched on the top rope, but Konley tags himself in. Xavier ends up landing an impressive spinning corkscrew splash from the top rope onto Caleb for the win.

Xavier, Garza, and Dutt are victorious


Fallah Bahh vs. EC3 (c) for the Grand Championship

Round 1: EC3 cannot find an answer to the size of Bahh in round one. At all. Bahh wins the round. They don’t say if it is unanimous or not.

Round 2: Carter is able to avoid a charge in the corner by Bahh early on. To follow up, he kicks him in the head against the corner post. Fallah is not able to recover from that this round. The round ends as Bahh is fighting out of a Camel Clutch. EC3 wins this round.

Round 3: First half of the round, Bahh is able to regain control with his power. EC3 escapes a Samoan Drop with a big time rake to the eyes but Bahh fights off the One Percenter. Bahh goes to the top rope for a Vader Bomb, but Carter rips him down and pins him with his feet on the ropes.

Carter wins in round 3 via pinfall


oVe & Sami Callihan vs. LAX (including Homicide)

Starts with pure chaos. There’s a ton of fighting in the ring but I don’t think the match has actually started.

It’s a big brawl, including a Homicide suicide dive! That move puts LAX in the driver’s seat. Homicide then throws a chair at Sami before rolling him into the ring. Meanwhile outside the ring, the other two members of LAX take it to oVe.

Homicide sets up his finish but Callihan fights off. Callihan grabs the ref as he mule kicks Homicide. As Impact goes to break, these men are finally making their way to the apron.

When it returns, Homicide is trapped in the Ohio corner. He’s finally able to escape Callihan and tag in... I dunno. Because both Santana and Ortiz came in an started running wild.

Santana soon finds himself battling both Jake Crist and Sami but soon finds himself on the receiving end of an assisted Tombstone Piledriver... which he kicks out of!

Team Ohio sets up for the All Seeing Eye but Ortiz breaks it up! Instead, Dave Crist takes the Street Sweeper. LAX wins.

LAX def. oVe

Sami starts throwing chairs into the ring and LAX throws them right back at them.


American Top Team returns

Dan Lambert comes to the ring by himself. He says “I told you so” for exposing pro wrestling and pro wrestlers for what they are. Lambert said that Impact made a deal promising Lashley’s release and Lashley upheld his side of the deal. But then Impact renegged on the deal. But he’s giving them one more chance. He had his lawyer draft a release for Lashley and just needs and Impact official to come out and sign it.

Moose’s music plays as Lambert continues to run his mouth. Moose says that it took six of Dan’s boys to take down one Moose. He says Lambert is an idiot for giving his boys a night off and showing up alone at a show that Moose is on.

He gets in the ring and Lambert tries to hightail it. But here comes Lashley and American Top Team to do what they do best... beat up Moose. But here comes James Storm! Last Call to Lashley!

Storm looks to Lambert but one of the Top Team fighters pulls him over and slaps him, so the Cowboy breaks a bottle over his head.

James then cuts a promo about his career and pro wrestling. He talks about what it means to walk out in front of the crowd and what it means to know everyone who puts this show together. That’s something ATT doesn’t understand.


Backstage, Lambert and ATT are backstage when KM approaches them saying he wants part of them because he likes their style. Lashley tells KM that if he wants in, prove himself.

Eli Drake cuts a promo on Petey backstage with Chris Adonis at his side.

Allie finds Gail Kim backstage to tell her it meant a lot to share a ring together at BFG. They hug.


They play a Gail Kim retrospective video.

Gail Kim addresses the crowd

JB is in the ring to introduce her. Allie comes out to join her in the ring.

Gail says that dreams can come true with hard work and fighting for what you believe in and she is living proof. She says she couldn’t have done it without the women who paved the way and those who made the journey with her. She names Trish Stratus, Lita, Molly Holly, Awesome Kong, and Taryn Terrell.

Tonight, she is relinquishing the title. She says she’s excited to see what’s next for Allie and all the KOs who will carry the legacy. She thanks Impact and the fans.


Joseph Park arrives to catering and sits down, causing everyone who was sitting there. Except for Grado. Park says he knows that he is the Monster Abyss and he’s going to make sure no one ever sees Abyss again. To make it up to Grado, he gave him his visa.

Suddenly a Mountie rolls up asking for Grado. He says that his visa may be OK for the US, but not Canada. So he’s getting deported anyway!


Josh Mathews is at commentary when Jimmy Jacobs rolls in. They take a selfie together.

Petey Williams vs. Eli Drake (c) for the Impact world championship

Adonis is with Drake of course.

The first segment of the match is all Petey. He gets Drake in a Tree of Woe, sings a little “Oh Canada” and then superkicks Eli’s left leg, following up with a single leg Boston. We’ll see if he goes back to that leg after the break.

Jimmy Jacobs is still chilling at the announce desk.

Eli has clear control when Impact returns. Petey isn’t getting any offense in. Adonis will also get a shot in when the referee isn’t looking.

Petey finally fights back and ends up trying for the Destroyer a couple times, but Drake able to block it each time. The second time, Petey locks in a Sharpshooter, which Eli is in for awhile before hitting the ropes.

Williams hits a hurricane DDT from the top rope and pre-emptively dives on Adonis to take him out of the equation. But when he springboards back into the ring Drake catches him in the Gravy Train... but Petey fights out. CANADIAN DESTROYER! 1-2-KICK OUT! DRAKE KICKS OUT!

Petey goes for another but Drake reversed it into a modified Kill of the Hunt. Petey kicks out. Champ goes for the Gravy Train but Petey rolls him up... champ kicks out!

Williams goes for yet another Destroyer but this time Drake picks him up into the Gravy Train and delivers it. 1-2-3.

Drake def. Petey to retain his title

Great match.


That’s the show, folks. Thanks for watching with us!
