Impact Wrestling Results, Live Blog (June 8, 2017): Impact in India!

For real this time!


Impact Wrestling is back tonight (June 8) from Mumbai, India 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, Bobby Lashley and Alberto El Patron will confront each other in the ring. Plus, Low Ki will defend his X Division title against Caleb Konley and Rosemary will defend her Knockouts gold against Laurel Van Ness.

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



A video from “Earlier today” with Jeremy Borash and Josh Mathews. Bruce Pritchard comes and tells them that they’ve been acting like jackasses. If there’s any physical altercations between these two, they’ll both be fired.

They play a video of everyone traveling to India and setting up the tapings.

The sound stage they are filming at looks pretty much exactly like the Impact Zone.

Alberto El Patron/Bobby Lashley opening segment

Alberto El Patron makes his way to the ring. He talks up the energy and promises he’s going to kick some ass in the ring tonight. Patron then speaks about that he’s won all the major titles in the promotions that he’s worked at, but there’s one that’s missing. And he’ll rectify that at Slammiversary when he becomes the undisputed Impact champion.

This brings Lashley out. The Impact said that Alberto muttered his name so he had to come out here to shut him up. When Alberto plays to the crowd, Lashley says Slammiversary is going to be another cakewalk because he’s going up against another cheerleader who cares more about the crowd. At the PPV, he’s going to take Parton’s title and then Alberto can walk his ass back to Mexico.

Out comes Bruce Pritchard. He says both of them are going to defend their titles tonight. Pritchard is going to go back and pick two opponents. If they lose their title, they go to Slammiversary in their stead.


Pritchard is back stage talking to two Luchadors - the Mumbai cats. Bruce talks to them about his hit single from his podcast. The two masked men want the title shots. Bruce tells them it’s not gonna happen.

Caleb Konley vs. Low Ki (c) for the X Division championship

Things are pretty even early on as the men exchange chops. Konley sweeps the champ and performs a senton for a 2 count. Low Ki evens things up with a big knee in the corner and clubs the challenger with some rights as he’s trapped in the corner.

The ref checks on Konley in the corner as Ki backs off. As soon as Konley is good to go, the champ goes back on the attack with an abdominal stretch. Konley fights out and lands some strikes on Ki but then runs into a boot. Low Ki runs at Konley, who ducks and the champ falls out of the ring. Konley lands a suicide dive. Both men are on the outside.

Back in the ring, Konley hits a crossbody from the top for a 2 count. Now Low Ki is reeling. The champ seems to be favoring one of his eyes.

The champ hits a big double drop kick into the corner. He climbs to the top... Warrior’s Way while Konley is hanging over the second rope! 1-2-3.

Low Ki def. Konley to retain his title

As Ki is leaving, Sonjay Dutt walks out to the ramp. He and Ki make their way back to the ring. Dutt points out that something is wrong with Low Ki’s eye, which he finds ironic. He then requests a title match.

Low Ki accepts the challenge for next week.


They show a video of Swoggle, who talked about how wrong it was for Spud to pull down “a midget’s pants.” So he did what he had to do. He says he had to go home to his son after the beatdown last week and he’s not going to forget about it. Just wait for the revenge he takes. He does not mention being hammered in the dick.

Davey Richards vs. Vicus Kumar (sp?)

Davey unloads on the poor guy with some kicks. When Richards finds himself outside the ring, Kumar goes for a dive over the top rope but Richards just moves out of the way.

The local talent fights enough to go for a moonsault from the top but Davey again avoids it. He lands a big kick and locks in an ankle lock for a submission victory.

Richards def. Kumar

As Davey is leaving, EC3 walks out. The exchange a glance and keep going their separate ways. Carter gets into the ring, takes out a belt, and whips the already beaten Kumar.

James Storms music hits and the Cowboy slowly walks out to make the save. He runs to the ring and Carter hightails it.


Eli Drake is complaining to Pritchard about the results of the Grand Championship match last week. Drake says he looks in the eyes of Bruce and can tell Bruce just has a problem with him. Eli puts his hand on Pritchard when Chris Adonis comes in and says that maybe he and Drake deserve a shot against Patron and Lashley tonight. Pritchard said he’d think about it.

They play a video about the Impact Hall of Fame.

As JB and Mathews are letting the fans know what’s next week, Swoggle chases Spud down the ramp into the crowd! Referee Stifler is between them. Spud jumps the guardrail and taunts Swoggle as he makes his way to the back.

They play a video about Mahabali Shera. It shows him greeting his family who came to the show to see him.

They play a video from earlier in the day where Joseph Park finds JB to get him to train.


Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Moose for the Impact championship

The men lock up to start and then soon exchange shoulder blocks. Bobby puts down Moose with an elbow, but Moose kips up and lands a drop kick. He’s tossed into the corner but runs up the ropes to the to and lands a crossbody on the champion.

Lashley ducks a clothesline and lands a running crossbody of his own. He shoulder blocks Moose in the corner, but Moose turns him around and lands some chops and a bicycle kick.

Bobby responds with a big German, that causes Moose to slide out of the ring. Lashley follows him out of the ring and beats down the challenger.

Back in the ring, the Destroyer has total control of Moose. He looks in a headlock that looks to almost knock out Moose but the bigger man fights out. He ends up drop kicking Lashley, who is perched up top, outside the ring. However when he tries to follow up, Lashley trips up Moose on the apron as Impact goes to break.

Impact returns with Moose just getting control of the match. He lands multiple splashes on the champ in the corner, knocking Lashley down. Moose then delivers a running drop kick to the downed Lashley.

But he next splash attempt is dodged by Bobby and the champ quickly hits a clothesline. Lashley goes for a spear but Moose jumps it and spears Lashley instead! 2 count!

Moose climbs to the top but Lashley meets him. Superplex! 2 count! The Destroyer sets up for a spear... but gets kicked in the face! Go To Hell! 2 count!

Moose goes for his Discus... miss! Lashley spear! 1-2-3.

Lashley def. Moose to retain his title


Video of LAX in their clubhouse. Konnan is proud of his boys for being double tag team champions.

They show another video about their travel to India.

Laurel Van Ness (w/Sienna) vs. Rosemary (c) for the Knockouts championship

Rosemary clotheslines LVN and then lays the fists to her. However as the ref checks on LVN, Sienna drags Rosemary out of the ring and tosses her in the ring post.

This allows the unhinged Laurel to take the fight to Rosemary in the ring with a series of kicks. But as she’s gloating, Rosemary almost floats to her feet and takes it to the challenger. Exploder earns her a 2 count.

Sienna climbs on the ring apron but Rosemary is able to knock LVN into her and then roll her up for the 1-2-3.

Rosemary retains her title.

Immediately after, this becomes a 2 on 1 brawl. But here comes Allie! Allie is making the save! And she’s got a weapon!

But as she’s checking on Rosemary, the other 2 attack her but now Rosemary has the weapon and scares off the villains!

The two are staring each other down. Rosemary holds out the weapons, drops it in front of Allie, bows and leaves.


Back to Pritchard who is in his office. KM comes in asking for the title shot against Patron. KM thinks its him but Bruce tells him he’s not. KM says he’s undefeated and he’s the #1 contender. Pritchard tells him he’s neither of those things. KM insists he is and accuses Bruce of calling him a liar. Pritchard says he’s not calling him a liar but also not calling him #1 contender.

They continue the training video with JB and Joe Park. Park doesn’t know how to use the treadmill. He also can’t left a 20 pound weight. After JB falls off the treadmill because Park put it too high, JB says “We’re screwed.” They then go to the roof so JB can learn how to be an X Division wrestler. He does a belly flop into the pool.


Alberto El Patron (c) vs. Chris Adonis (w/Eli Drake) for the GFW title

Adonis takes it to Patron immediately as the bell rings. The fight soon spills into the crowd where Berto is on the offensive. It makes its way back into the ring where Alberto is on control early until he misses a drop kick and finds himself in the Adonis lock tied up in the ropes as Impact goes to break.

When they return, Adonis is working over Patron. Finally, Alberto is able to toss Adonis over the rope and then drop kick his legs knocking him to the floor. Chris makes his way back in the ring, but just walks into AEP clotheslines.

Patron misses his kick to the head and Adonis hits a spinebuster. 2 count. Patron hits his kick to the head. Also gets a 2 count.

Adonis hits a sky high powerbomb for 2. Drake jumps on the apron complaining but gets admonished by the ref. Adonis goes for the Adonis Lock but Patron avoids it. The challenger some how finds himself tied up in the ropes so Patron can hit his stomp.

Patron def. Adonis to retain the title

After the match, Adonis and Drake beat down Patron as Lashley just watches from the entryway. However Moose runs down to make the save.
