Minoru Suzuki jumped into the shark tank of Impact by targeting Josh Alexander. Those two are bound to clash in singles action eventually, but Suzuki needs a snack in the meantime. Come Thursday night on Impact Wrestling, Suzuki will dine on the flesh of Kaleb Konley.
The match came about when Scott D’Amore hoodwinked the Influence.
Madison Rayne was upset about losing to Mickie James in a title match and being stepped over by Mercedes Martinez. Kaleb Konley was ringside interfering on Rayne’s behalf. When he tried to slap Mickie’s cheeks as payback, she ducked and his hand hit the ring post. Both Rayne and Konley were at their wits’ end backstage. D’Amore sarcastically made it right by booking Rayne against Martinez and Konley versus Suzuki.
That clip was a hoot delivering comedy with D’Amore shaking Konley’s injured neck and giving the double cheek kiss upon delivering the news he is about to be pulverized. Konley does have real skills in the ring, but those are hidden since his current character is a bit of a doofus. Make no mistake. It is going to be a massacre. When you have a man affectionately known as Murder Grandpa, you have to give the people what they want. And what they want is for Konley to be chopped into mincemeat.
The Nov. 11 episode of Impact Wrestling will also feature a #1 contender match between Chris Bey & Hikuleo of the Bullet Club against FinJuice. The winner will wrestle the Good Brothers for the Impact tag titles at a later date. Undead bridesmaids Kimber Lee & Brandi Lauren are set to clash with Rosemary & Havok. It also looks like Rocky Romero will tango with Rohit Raju. The Mocha Skinned Manimal was annoyed that Romero jumped the line, so Azucar offered a taste of sugar.
How badly do you think Suzuki will hurt Konley?
