Title change, ex-ROH champ returns at Impact taping (SPOILERS)

Impact Wrestling is taping some upcoming episodes of television this weekend at their “Winter Warfare” shows in Pembroke Pines, Florida. The material will make up several shows that will build toward Jan. 13’s Hard to Kill PPV.

The headline happenings so far have been the return of former Ring of Honor World champion Jonathan Gresham — who reportedly had a falling out with ROH’s new management in one of AEW’s many 2022 dramas, and who is married to Knockouts champ Jordynne Grace, and the Tag titles going from fan favorite team to another.

Here’s what happened on Fri., Dec. 9, courtesy of PWInsider & Impact Asylum:

Shera def. Jack Price

Taylor Wilde def. Kilynn King

Eddie Edwards def. Delirious. The two ROH veterans shook hands afterwards, then Edwards turned on Delirious. Gresham ran in to make the save.

Bully Ray squashed John Skyler. Tommy Dreamer came out to stop Bully from doing too much post-match damage to Skyler, and the two ECW vets jawed at one another.

Matt Cardona & Brian Myers def. Decay

Sami Callihan def. Alan Angels. Post-match, Deaner & Kon joined Angels for a Violent by The Design beatdown of Callihan.

Gujjar & Joe Hendry def. Johnny Swinger & Zicky Dice. Moose showed up during the match and chased Hendry off, but Guijar won on his own, and Joe was back for the celebration.

Motor City Machine Guns def. Heath & Rhino to win the Impact Tag titles

Death Dollz def. Giselle Shaw & Deonna Purrazzo
