It didn’t have a ton of buzz heading into it, and honestly probably got upstaged by Match-of-the-Weekend candidate Will Ospreay vs. Matt Riddle at Mercury Rising and the madcap indie wrestling celebration Joey Janela threw after midnight. But Impact vs. Lucha Underground delivered a good time, and not just for the latest in Del Rio Drama™.
Our Zach Tarrant was there, and he and his camera captured the action in the above photo gallery of spectacular shots from the show. Flip through it above!
For context, here are the results:
- Matanza Cueto/Jeff Cobb def. Moose, Chavo Guerrero Jr., Matt Sydal, Jack Evans and Caleb Konley via pinfall following Wrath of the Gods (on Konley)
- Allie def. Taya Valkyrie via pinfall following a Codebreaker to retain the Knockouts Championship
- Scott Steiner and Teddy Hart def. oVe (Dave and Jake Crist) via submission with a Steiner Recliner on Jake
- King Cuerno, Drago and Aerostar def. Andrew Everett, Dezmond Xavier & DJZ via submission when Cuerno got Everett in a reverse Indian deathlock
- Trevor Lee def. Marty The Moth via pinfall after a roll-up
- LAX (Santana & Ortiz) def. Killshot (Shane Strickland) and The Mack via pinfall following Street Sweeper on Killshot to retain the Impact Tag Team Titles
- Brian Cage def. Eli Drake via pinfall following a spinning neckbreaker
- Jeremiah Crane (Sami Callihan) def. Eddie Edwards in an “I Quit” match when Don Callis threw in the towel before Callihan could repeat the baseball/chair spot which fractured Eddie’s face. Edwards had Crane where he wanted him after a powerbomb to the guardrail, but oVe ran in, allowing Sami to knock him with from behind. Moose appeared after the bell to keep the heels from attacking Callis and Eddie.
- Pentagon, Jr. (Penta 0M) def. Austin Aries and Fenix (Rey Fenix) in a Triple Threat via pinfall following a Pentagon Driver to Fenix
Chavo announced LU’s season four premiere for June 13 after the opener.
Scott Steiner lived up to his nWo shirt and threw the referee out after his win, and Famous B was announced as Lee’s opponent, but of course he brought a client instead.
Diamante returned to corner LAX, and Alberto El Patron’s absence from what was supposed to be a tag main event wasn’t explained, but the crowd let everyone know what they thought. Pentagon and Fenix were announced for a match at Impact’s Redemption pay-per-view (PPV) on April 22.
