Hey Fight Fans we hope you had a great day and are ready for tonight's edition of IMPACT Wrestling on AXS TV and Twitch TV headlined by a tag team title match!
- We open tonight's show with a recap of last week's show in which Moose managed to defeat both Michael Elgin and Hernández in the main event. We next open in the arena with Sami Callihan who comes out to the ring and addresses his turning on his former OvE brethren. Sami says that he sees everything and that he had the fight of his life against Ken Shamrock. Sami says that it's going to take a lot more to keep him down and that he went toe to toe with The World's Most Dangerous Man. Sami says that he will never let anyone help him again and he doesn't need help from the referee or OvE before saying that he has unfinished business with Ken Shamrock.
Ken comes out onto the stage and tells Sami that he needs to calm down because he has something to say to him. Ken gets into the ring and says that he's one tough S.O.B. after listing off the big names he's made tap out when Sami didn't including The Big Show and Bas Rutten and The Rock. Ken says that they have two options, go back outside and settle things or change focus to the IMPACT World Championship. Ken then asks Sami to shake his hand and put things behind them before they're interrupted by Michael Elgin. Michael says that he is the one and only rightful IMPACT World champion and tells Sami that he doesn't need tricks and advantages to win.
Michael says that he can do things that many men cannot do and that he is the rightful number one contender. Ken challenges Michael before Michael tells them that the line starts behind him before Sami calls into question his ego. Michael drops Sami with a forearm before Ken hip tosses him and escapes when Sami goes for a piledriver before Sami takes out his phone and disappears. We then go backstage to a promo by Chris Bey who is the new number one contender for the X-Division championship who says that he's going to finesse his way to the title as we go to commercial.
- We come back to a promo by the X-Division champion Willie Mack who says that he didn't expect someone to come after his title so quick and that Chris Bey has finessed himself into a problem. We next go to a rundown of tonight's matches and segments, headlined by a tag team title match in our main event.
OvE (Jake Crist & Madman Fulton) w/Dave Crist vs XXXL
Fulton and Larry get things started by locking up several times for a stalemate before they run the ropes and run into each other before Fulton drops Larry with a shoulder block. Larry hits a delayed scoop slam and tags in Acey who hits a running senton and Jake gets the tag. Acey drops Jake several times and XXXL drop him with a double back elbow. Larry hits a scoop slam into a leg drop for two before locking in a rear chin lock, Jake getting to his feet before Larry hits a back drop for two. Dave then saves Jake from being double teamed by dragging him out of the ring as we go to commercial.
We get a recap of the action during the break where OvE took control and Fulton now in control, having Acey isolated in the corner before cheap shotting Larry. Fulton hits a sliding cross body to Acey against the ropes before OvE start chaining together offense and tags. Acey hits a back drop and a spinebuster before crawling to the corner and tagging in Larry. Larry clotheslines Fulton and suplexes him before hitting a running splash for two, Jake coming in and rocking Larry with a roundhouse kick. Larry sends Jake over the top rope and hits a suicide dive before tossing him back into the ring and climbing to the top. OvE hit a top rope powerbomb, neckbreaker combo for a near fall that Acey breaks up before Larry knocks Jake out with a right hand for the pin and the win.
Winner: XXXL defeat OvE via pinfall.
-After the match we go to this week's IMPACT+Flashback Moment of the Week before we go to tonight's edition of Madison Rayne's Locker Room Talk featuring Johnny Swinger as her co-host and Havok as her guest as we go to commercial.
- We come back to a promo by The Deaners at their farm before we go to the IMPACT Zone for our next match between Johnny Swinger and Suicide.
Johnny Swinger vs Suicide
Johnny attacks Suicide when the referee is busy with him, having him check Suicide for weapons before he tries to rake his back and his eyes, but it's not effective since both are covered. Suicide sends Johnny out of the ring before hitting a slingshot cross body and tossing him back into the ring. Back in the ring Johnny drops Suicide with a closed right hand before choking him against the mat and missing a falling headbutt to the groin. Suicide comes back with a flurry of strikes before turning Johnny end over end and Johnny punches Suicide in the face. Suicide then hits a code breaker before hitting a swanton bomb for the pin and the win.
Winner: Suicide defeats Johnny Swinger via pinfall.
