The following is an excerpt from the live play-by-play by Ryan Cook. 

Z&E double team Eli to start the match before Scott hits Z when he runs the ropes and Eli hits a cutter. Scott tags in and beats Z down in the corner before he tags Eli back in who slams Z into the corner. Scott tags himself back in and hits an avalanche Samoan drop off of the top before ​​​​​Andrew finally gets tagged in and hits an enzuigiri into a springboard dropkick. Z&E then send Scott out of the ring before hitting a double team move for a near fall, then Scott accidentally hits Eli with a chair at ringside before Andrew pins him for the win.

Winner: Z&E defeat Eli Drake & Scott Steiner to become the new IMPACT Tag Team champions when Andrew pins Eli after Scott inadvertently hits Eli with a chair.

This is the first time either wrestler has held the Impact Wrestling Tag Team Championship and the first time Everett has had any championship in the promotion.
