Impact’s next special event is looking stacked with the inclusion of ODB and the NJPW tag team FinJuice being booked into championship bouts for Sacrifice on March 13.
David Finlay and Juice Robinson have been needling the Good Brothers ever since they showed up in Impact last month. They have something to prove, since Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows still view them as young boys.
The four men teamed together tonight (Mar. 2, 2021) on Impact Wrestling to defeat XXXL & Reno Scum. The Good Brothers had the victory on lockdown when FinJuice wanted to be tagged in. The miscommunication resulted in a roll-up attempt on Anderson. The Good Brothers swiftly regained momentum for a Magic Killer to win. Both winning pairs tried to steal the camera time in celebration of victory.
Backstage after the match, the argument resumed. FinJuice will get their chance at gold after the Good Brothers offered a sporting challenge for Sacrifice.

Staying on the crossover tip, the Tonys were back at it again with a paid commercial. Tony Schiavone hyped the Dynamite special with Shaquille O’Neal and Paul Wight (aka Big Show) and the Revolution PPV on March 7. The interesting nugget came when Tony Khan named himself as the captain of the wrestling war. He declared that Impact, NJPW, and AEW are all on the same side against, “them.” Khan doesn’t have to tell us who, “them,” refers to, but you know it is WWE. Let the Forbidden Door swing wide open.

As for the Knockouts division, Deonna Purrazzo confessed to laying out ODB backstage last week. That led to ODB seeking revenge on the Knockouts champ tonight on Impact Wrestling. ODB stood tall to signify she’s next in line for a title shot at Sacrifice.

The current card for Sacrifice now stands at:
- Impact World Championship: Rich Swann (c) vs Moose
- Knockouts Championship: Deonna Purrazzo (c) vs ODB
- Impact World Tag Team Championship: Good Brothers (c) vs FinJuice
- X-Division Championship: TJP (c) vs Ace Austin
- Knockouts Tag Championship: Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz (c) vs Jordynne Grace & Jazz
Does the nostalgia of ODB or the crossover appeal of FinJuice make it must-see for you? Are you predicting any upsets at Sacrifice?
