Impact Wrestling hosts their Slammiversary XVII pay-per-view (PPV) tonight (July 7) from Gilly’s in Dallas, Texas.

The event is headlined by an Impact world title match between champion Brian Cage and challenger Michael Elgin. Also Tessa Blanchard faces Sami Callihan in an intergender match. The Knockouts championship will be defended in a Monster’s Ball fatal 4-way, featuring the champion Taya Valkyrie, Rosemary, Jessicka Havoc, and Su Yung. Rich Swann defends his X Division title again Johnny Impact. There is a triple threat bout for the tag team titles between the champs the North, LAX, and the Rascalz. And RVD will face Moose.

This show is offered on pay-per-view (in the US) and Fite TV (US and international).

We’ll update the results tonight as they happen, and feel free to use this space to discuss all the action with the best pro wrestling community on the internet - before, during and after the show.

- Willie Mack def. TJP, Jake Crist, Willie Mack, & Trey

Crist had just hit a cutter on Trey when Mack came off the top rope to nail Jake for the 1-2-3.

- They show us a little of the end of the tag title match from Friday’s Bash at the Brewery where the North defeated LAX to win the titles. Ethan Page used a championship as a weapon when the referee wasn’t looking to help them win.

- The North is interviewed backstage. The champs take issues with Melissa Santos saying “people were surprised” the North beat LAX. They say the story will remain the same tonight as well.

- The North (Ethan Page & Josh Alexander) (c) def. LAX (Santana & Ortiz) & the Rascalz (Dez & Wentz) to retain the tag team championships

This looks to be a Texas tornado rules. No one is tagging in and out.

In the middle of the match, Konnan tells the announcers that Santana is hurt. The doctors come out to look at him.

The North picked up the win. Santana was never involved in the match again. Ortiz and the Rascalz helped Santana after the match.

- Eddie Edwards def. Killer Kross in a first blood match

Kross has some sick face paint.

Eddie Edwards took his beloved kendo stick, broke it in half over his knee, and then shoved the broken end in Kross’ mouth, busting him over.

The announcers question if this is the point of no return for Eddie.

- Rolando Menedez tries to interview Tessa Blanchard backstage, but she just grabs him and pushes him into the wall.

- RVD is interviewed backstage about Moose. Rob says he respects how Moose straight up called him out. This has made Van Dam more aggressive.

- Moose def. Rob Van Dam

Towards the end of the match, Moose introduces a chair. RVD hits the Van Daminator when Moose has it held up. Then delivers a drop toe hold onto the chair after Moose drops it. (The ref did not DQ this as no one swung the chair at another person). While Moose is lying on the chair, RVD goes up for the five star frog splash but Moose moves and Rob lands on the chair. Moose hits his “No Jackhammer Needed” spear for the 1-2-3.

- Taya cuts a promo backstage pretty much claiming she’s not losing her title tonight.

- Taya Valkyrie (c) def. Rosemary, Jessicka Havoc, & Su Yung in a Monster’s Ball match to retain the Knockouts title

In the beginning of the match, Rosemary and Taya honor their deal and seem to work as a team against Su Yung and Havok.

Taya starts stapling Su Yung’s back, and then staples an 8x10 of her to Su’s forehead!

Su Yung later hooks the demon collar to Rosemary and then to herself and for the time being, these two are attached to each other. Taya hits both women with a ladder. Next we see them, the collar is off.

After avoiding a tower of doom spot onto a ladder, Rosemary introduces the tacks into the match. But Taya gets the better of Rosemary and stomps her face first onto the tacks!

In the end, Havok tombstones Su Yung from the second rope onto the tacks! But Taya nails Jessicka with a chair and pins Su herself to retain her title!

- Rich Swann (c) def. Johnny Impact to retain the X Division championship

Johnny Impact’s lackey Jonny Bravo helps Impact multiple times, until finally, Swann takes him out with a dive.

Rich wins after delivering a series of kicks, a couple cutters, and a Phoenix Splash.

- Brian Cage (c) def. Michael Elgin to retain the Impact world championship

Brian Cage can’t hit the Drill Claw because of his bad back. Elgin take advantage with a buckle bomb in the corner but when he tries to follow up with the Elgin Bomb, Cage back body drops him into a cover or the 1-2-3.

Elgin hits Brian with the title after the match. He then goes and grabs Don Callis and tosses him into the ring. But someone in a mask Gores him! We don’t see Rhyno because he never takes off the mask, but it’s probably him.

- Sami Callihan def. Tessa Blanchard

Tessa put up a hell of a fight and kicked out of a ton of match ending moves, but a Cactus Special was the winning move for Callihan.

After the match, it looks like Sami is about to beat up Tessa with two bats, but instead he hands her the bat that she walked to the ring with as a show of respect.

That’s the show, folks. Thanks for watching with us!
