GFW Impact Wrestling spoilers from Aug. 20: Another title change, Bound for Glory plans

Impact Wrestling on Instagram

GFW’s Impact Wrestling continued taping on Sunday at Orlando’s Universal Studios backlot (aka the Impact Zone). This continued the Jim Cornette-led build toward October’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view (PPV).

These results are compiled from a variety of live reports, which are subject to a couple levels of interpretation, and final production of the material for airing on television usually changes context, so...

Take these with a grain of salt, is all I’m saying. Still the big matches, winners/losers and story beats are here.

Filmed Sunday, Aug. 20 for probable broadcast Sept. 14, 21 and 28:

- Dezmond Xavier pinned X-Division champ Trevor Lee in a non-title 6Way which also featured Petey Williams, Matt Sydal, Garza Jr and Sonjay Dutt.

- The women get one of those segments where everyone makes their case for a title shot. Champ Sienna starts by lobbying for Hall of Fame induction at Bound for Glory, which brings out Gail Kim looking for a rematch. Taryn Terrell cuts her off to say Gail’s never beaten her. Finally, Allie says her hard work should earn her a title shot. Karen Jarrett comes out and books a 4Way for BFG.

- Johnny Impact def. Texano

- oVe def. LAX to win the GFW tag team titles (the “Victory Road” graphics were up for this, so expect it on that episode - believed to be 9/14)

- Jeremy Borash reveals accusations that Joseph Park has been stealing from Grado. Park denies this, shoves Borash and rails against the crowd. Jeremy says there will be a “trial” later tonight.

- Matt Sydal, Petey Williams and Sonjay Dutt def. Andrew Everett, Caleb Konley and Trevor Lee (Sydal pinned Everett)

- Afterwards, Dutt challenges Lee to a title fight at BFG. Williams and Sydal both want that match, too, and the segment ends with the winning babyface team arguing.

- oVe def. Jon Bolen and Trey Miguel

- James Storm, Allie and Dezmond Xavier def. Andrew Everett, Texano and Sienna (Storm pinned Everett)

- The in-ring trial of Joseph Park nets a confession, with Park admitting he’s been stealing from Grado and saying he has his visa. He proposes a match for BFG - if Grado wins, he stays. If he loses, he gets deported back to the UK. Grado signs the contract, then Park reveals he’ll have to face Abyss in a Monster’s Ball match at the PPV.

- The “Victory Road” logos are back up for a promo from James Storm. The Cowboy says the AAA wrestlers disrespect him because they know he’s the best in GFW. Texano interrupts, which gets a “USA” chant from the crowd, but Storm shuts it down saying it’s not America vs. Mexico because we’re all humans. Texano and Storm brawl, with El Hijo de Fantasma running in to assist his fellow luchador. Fantasma says he supports Global Force but AAA is the best in the world. Ethan Carter III runs out to save his old rival Storm, and they shake hands after chasing Texano and Fantasma off.

- Sienna, Taryn Terrell and Taya def. Rosemary, Gail Kim and Allie (Sienna pinned Allie) in another “Victory Road” match

- Eli Drake def. Johnny Impact to retain the GFW World title in another “Victory Road” match. The match was said to have ref bumps and interference by Chris Adonis.

- Post-match, Drake and Adonis attack Johnny, but Garza Jr. comes to his aid. LAX shows up to beat him down. During the ensuing melee, Adonis attacks some referees, and he and the champ end up standing tall.
