This is the Fightful.com live coverage for tonight's episode of IMPACT Wrestling on Pop TV! Tonight we have a great show as the Super X Cup gets underway as ACH faces Andrew Everett, and in our main event for the first time ever, Moose will face off against Pro Wrestling NOAH's resident ace, Naomichi Marufuji when he defends his IMPACT Grand Championship! Be sure to come back here at 8 PM EST for all of the action!
-We open the show with a taped segment with Grado and Joseph Park backstage talking before Joseph says that he can stay in the country if he marries an American citizen. Park then says that Grado can marry one of the Knockouts tonight.
-LAX come out and Konnan gets on the mic and introduces Alberto El Patron; Alberto reluctantly coming to the ring. Alberto talks about his friendship with Konnan over the years before saying that Konnan said he joined LAX without his consent. Konnan then talks about how the Latin American greats were shortchanged by various companies and the trouble he had with the former owners of IMPACT. Alberto says he understands what he wants to do, but doesn't agree with how he wants to do it. Alberto says that he was a loner in Japan and he wants to remain one in IMPACT, but Konnan says that he's no longer alone and that they are his family.
Alberto rejects their offer before LAX beat him down until Lashley comes down and saves Alberto to the surprise of everyone in the arena.
ACH vs Andrew Everett
They shake hands to start the match before showing off their speed and athleticism by doing a bunch of flips. They counter each other before ACH hits a back flipping dropkick for a quick two count. Everett hits a running forearm in the corner before following up with a springboard dropkick. Everett hits an asai moonsault onto ACH on the floor before putting him back in the ring. ACH hits a double foot stomp among others in a matter of seconds before sending Everett out of the ring.
ACH puts him back in the ring and turns him inside out with a lariat before Everett comes back with a blue thunder bomb for a near fall. Everett then hits a superkick before ACH hits a vertical drop brainbuster for the pin and the win.
Winner: ACH via pinfall
