After the match, Tessa extends the hand Gail shakes it. The two hug and Tessa is very emotional after her huge win. Tessa leaves first and Gail has a moment in the ring as the fans thank her.
- Brian Cage def Johnny Impact (c) to win the Impact world title.
This was an over booked affair with Taya Valkyrie and Johnny Bravo getting involved. At one point, Impact superkicked Lance Storm. When Lance came to, he tried to DQ Johnny but Cage stopped him and delivered the Drill Claw for the win.
After the match, Michael Elgin debuts and powerbombs the new champion.
- LAX def. Lucha Bros (c) in a Full Metal Mayhem match to win the tag team titles. The finish of the match was Ortiz powerbombing Pentagon from a ladder through two tables full of tacks.
The four men and Konnan embrace after the match.
Some of the locker room comes out after the match to show their respect for these two teams.
