Knockouts Tag Team Championship: Rosemary & Havok defeated Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz to win the titles. Rosemary speared Steelz. Hogan hopped on Havok’s back for a sleeper, but Havok used her strength to counter into a tombstone piledriver for the win.
X-Division Championship: Josh Alexander defeated Trey Miguel, Ace Austin, Chris Bey, Rohit Raju, and Petey Williams in Ultimate X to retain the title. Tons of crazy spots living up to the match’s reputation. The finish came down to Alexander and Bey hanging from the cables trying to grab the belt. They managed to unsnap the strap, but both men had hands on it. Ace tried to steal the belt with a springboard leap, however, Alexander and Bey both pulled the title up out of his reach. Alexander eventually got the championship in his full possession to win as Bey fell down to the mat.
Matt Cardona & Chelsea Green defeated Brian Myers & Tenille Dashwood. Green was Cardona’s surprise partner. Green used her arm cast to low blow Tenille to set up an Unprettier for victory.
W. Morrissey defeated Eddie Edwards. Morrissey used a chain to land a loaded punch. A powerbomb finished Edwards.
FinJuice defeated Madman Fulton & Shera. EVP Scott D’Amore made the match on the fly. David Finlay and Juice Robinson returned from NJPW as a surprise. Finlay hit a fancy stunner on Fulton to win.
Chris Sabin defeated Moose. Moose had momentum with power moves, but Sabin surprised him with a speedy victory roll.
Impact World Tag Team Championship: Good Brothers defeated Joe Doering & Rhino, Rich Swann & Willie Mack, and No Way Jose & Fallah Bahh in a four-way to win the titles. TJP was unable to compete, so No Way Jose was the surprise as Bahh’s partner. Rhino was gearing up for a Gore, but he was distracted by scuffling on the floor from other members in the fight. Karl Anderson ran in for a Stun Gun cutter to Rhino. The Good Brothers finished him with a Magic Killer.
Knockouts Championship: Deonna Purrazzo defeated Thunder Rosa to retain the title. Thunder Rosa was the mystery opponent. Purrazzo was never able to fully lock in an armbar submission, so she used her Gotch piledriver to finish the challenger.
After the match, Mickie James arrived on the scene. She invited Purrazzo to partake in the NWA’s all-women’s PPV in August. Purrazzo insulted James, so Hardcore Country had the last laugh with a superkick to the champ’s mush.
Impact World Championship: Kenny Omega defeated Sami Callihan to retain the title in no DQ. The match was filled with glorious violence. Omega loaded his knee pad with thumbtacks for a V-trigger then shoved thumbtacks in Callihan’s mouth for another V-trigger. One Winged Angel closed it.
During the Elite celebration, the lights went out. A Bullet Club video played on screen as “Switchblade” Jay White came to the ring. Tension was teased for a potential Too Sweet clink, and the show went off the air without knowing which side White stands on.
