We’ll be here at 8 EST when Impact starts, so come join us!
Grado and Katarina come down to the ring... BUT HERE’S EDDIE EDWARDS WITH THE KENDO STICK. AND HE ATTACKED GRADO! HE CHASES KATARINA OFF!
Eddie gets on the mic and rants about how Dreamer ruined his chance to finish Sami Callihan off. He calls his “fatass” out!
Dreamer calls him out and tries to calm his friend. He tells him he didn’t ruin anything, he saved him from making the worst mistake of his life. Tommy says that he once obsessed over a man but Eddie says that made Dreamer the man he is. Eddie says he hasn’t spoken to his wife in a week and when Dreamer says he knows, Edwards gets pissed, demanding to know how he knows that.
Eddie gets into the face of Dreamer, and Tommy finally has to shove him away. He doesn’t seem happy about it. Eddie looks like he’s about to cry.
EDDIE NAILS DREAMER WITH THE KENDO STICK!
Dreamer is backstage livid. Scott D’Amore tried to calm him down, but Tommy is pissed, demanding he “check your boy.” He walks out.
Rebel vs. Taya Valkyrie
Looks like Rebel is back. She’s still doing that split on the bottom rope too.
Su Yung looks to be watching the match backstage.
This is rather one sided, though Rebel does fire up in the end. She even hits her split kick or whatever it is.
But Taya wins with the Road to Valhalla.
Taya def. Rebel
Post match, Taya gets on the mic and speaks to Madison Rayne. She says things have changed since Madison has left. This is her kingdom now and she’s going to prove it next week.
GWN match of the week. It’s the classic Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels match, which has been considered the best match in company history.
Matt Sydal is interviewed by McKenzie Mitchell backstage. He says he looks at things on a higher level than others and he sees the weakness inside Brian Cage. Since he’s on the path of enlightenment, the universe will conspire in his favor.
oVe camcorder video. Sami Callihan, with a nasty eye, says he thinks he won last week since Eddie lost his wife and his mind. And tonight, Jake Crist is going to take out El Hijo de Fantasma.
The Cult of Lee vs. KM & Fallah Bahh
This is all KM and Bahh, who even both do the rolls on both men.
But Caleb Konley rakes the eyes of Bahh and then blinded, Bahh accidentally delivered a big Samoa Drop to his partner KM. The Cult of Lee land a double drop kick to Fallah and then cover KM for the win.
Cult of Lee def. KM & Fallah
KM is pissed post match, screaming “What the hell was that?” He shoves his partner down and storms out, screaming “I’m done!”
We’re in the LAX Clubhouse. King says he got Santana and Ortiz a tag title shot for next week. Kingston offers up a toast. He hands a drink to Diamante, but she doesn’t take it at first. She finally does and joins in the toast. When King is left alone, the music changes to something more ominous as he puts his feet on the desk and says “The world is mine.”
Moose vs. Eli Drake
Oh, this isn’t an Impact Zone match. It’s a House of Hardcore match.
This was an edited match but we see most of it. In the end, Moose wins with a spear to become #1 contender.
Moose def. Drake
Tessa Blanchard vs. Kiera Hogan
Tessa comes out first. Kiera storms down to the ring and pulls Tessa out of the ring and goes right on the attack.
Josh casually drops that this is a no DQ match. It looks like that was in fact on the advert, though in small print.
Tessa eventually hits the hammerlock DDT but Kiera kicks out! Tessa stomps Kiera in the corner until the referee pulls her off. The announcers point out that he was wrong to do that since it’s no DQ. So she shoves him and trash talks him.
But Kiera grabs a chair that was introduced earlier and throws it at her! Kiera fires up but Tessa goes for the chair. She picks it up but Hogan stomps it out of her hand! Bulldog on the chair but Tessa kicks out!
Kiera sets up the chair, but Blanchard grabs her and tosses her face first on the chair for the 1-2-3.
Tessa def. Kiera
A video is played recapping the mystery attacker story. Josh Mathews and Don Callis talk about it for a bit.
El Hijo de Fantasma vs. Jake Crist
Jake has his brother Dave in the corner but no Callihan.
Fantasma ends up winning with a roll up.
Fantasma def. Crist
Dave attacks Fantasma post match. He tosses Fantasma into the ring, where he gets back in control. He knocks Dave off the apron and picks up Jake in a fireman’s. But out comes Sami Callihan with the bat and it’s all over for Fantasma.
Sami is going to take off his mask... but the lights go out! And Pentagon out to make the save! Out goes Dave. Superkick to Jake! Jake and Pentagon posture in the middle of the ring until Callihan decides to bail.
Brian Cage vs. Matt Sydal (c) for the X Division title
Matt Sydal tries to stick and move but Cage soon is on the attack.
Wait... JimmyJacobs and Kongo Kong make their way down the ramp. Sydal takes advantage of the distraction to land a knee to the head and go on the offensive.
Cage is soon back on the attack and Matt has to take a powder. Kongo Kong steps up to him. Cage returns to focus on Sydal, tossing him back int he ring. When he does that, Kong tosses the big man in the ring steps.
This takes enough time for Cage to get counted out.
Sydal def. Cage via Countout
We go backstage. Petey Williams is standing over Fallah Bahh with the red X card in his hand. Sonjay comes up yelling and Petey tries to claim he didn’t do it. But he gets arrested. He please with Sonjay but gets take away. When he’s ot of site for anyone, the big security guard/policeman attacks Petey with his nightstick, choking him out.
He takes off his shirt to reveal a big tattoo that has a huge moose on it, which has been in some of the video packages. He leaves the calling card on Petey.
That’s the show, folks. Thanks for watching!
