There was a lot of big Impact news over the weekend, but it happened on other company’s shows. After their main title changed hands on AEW Rampage, their Knockouts champion won AAA’s Reina de Reinas belt in Mexico City, and The Good Brothers had a Bullet Club staredown at New Japan’s L.A. show, Impact got back to putting together their own shows in Nashville yesterday (Aug. 15).
What was next for the newsmakers from the weekend? Christian Cage was only announced for Impact’s Monday & Tuesday tapings (his first title defense against Brian Meyers will be filmed this afternoon), but Deonna Purrazzo, her challenger for Aug. 28’s NWA Empowerr event Melina, and Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson were all on hand Sunday at Skyway Studios.
