Impact Wrestling Results, Live Blog (May 25, 2017): Triple Threat Match


Impact Wrestling is back tonight (May 25) from Orlando, Florida and will be airing on Pop TV at 8 EST. This is your spot for the live updates and to talk about it with your fellow fans.

Tonight, there is a triple threat match between James Storm, EC3, and Magnus to decide who main events Slammiversary. Plus Davey Richards and Angelina Love will face Eddie and Alisha Edwards, Rockstar Spud returns to confront Swoggle, and Mahabali Shera & Braxton Sutter will face KM & Kongo Kong.

We'll be here at 8 EST when Impact starts, so come join us!



The show opes with Bruce Pritchard alongside Tyrus. Bruce says that Tyrus is his personal protection after the action from EC3. He says EC3’s actions are under review and will be dealt with. He then shifts gears and invites Bobby Lashley to the ring.

Lashley asks who he gets to beat up at Slammiversary. Before Pritchard can answer, they’re interrupted by EC3. Carter makes fun of Pritchard for a moment before telling Lashley that he’s winning tonight and then he’s going to beat him at Slammiversary.

Out comes Magnus to some super generic music. He tells Bobby that his credentials speak for themselves. He also tells EC3 to shut his mouth for a two minutes. He goes out to say he returned to Impact to fight against the reign of terror of the Impact regime.

Finally, and predictably, out comes James Storm. He says that if anyone has claim to the title, it’s him. The Cowboy claims he’s looking to fight right now, but Pritchard stops him. Bruce let’s it known that the winner will face Lashley at the PPV and it will be a DQ match. He also says if anyone touches another before the match starts, there won’t be a match and they will be suspended indefinitely.


Backstage, EC3 cuts a promo saying he’s going to win tonight. He says that his crushing the beer bottle over the Cowboy was the signal for the real EC3 to stand up.
