Another great show, 20LEgend!

All of the storylines are looking good. In particular, I am enjoying the turn of Ethan Carter. A small part of me thought that you might turn Eddie Edwards on this night, having him interfere on behalf of Carter in the Carter/James match. However, I like that this has not been predictable. Will EC be bringing back some former Impact legends(*Cough*AustinAries, Bully Ray, Jay Lethal*Cough*) to be on Team Impact. I am looking forward to seeing what exactly happens.

E-Li-Drake is looking good and I am looking forward to his rematch with Johnny Impact 'next week.' I don't expect him to get the title back since Impact has the feud with El Patron and LAX. But I am looking forward to him getting a solid match against Impact.

Gail Kim and Taya should be a great match. I am definitely a fan of Taya so I hope she gets a continued push here in this diary.

Could we see a Lethal Lockdown match in the future with LAX/Alberto against Johnny Impact, Reno Scum and others?

The X-Division is looking strong. Though it doesn't compare to the golden age where guys like AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and Christopher Daniels were dominating. But you are definitely making me care more about these X-Division guys than I do in real life.(As someone who watches Impact every week)

Finally, I have to admit that I am enjoying the Joseph Parks/Grado storyline much more here than in real life. In all honesty, I fast forward through that storyline when I am watching Impact. It just doesn't grip me. However, you have brought that edge to the story that I am really enjoying.

Overall, such a great job, 20LEgend. Keep up the great work and I will continue to read.

This week on Impact Wrestling, former Impact World Champion Eli Drake takes his rematch, against the man who defeated him at Bound For Glory, Johnny Impact. The highly anticipated return contest between the two will have the spectre of Alberto El Patron over it, and the recent formation of his alliance with Konnan's LAX will mean that the competitors will need eyes in the backs of their heads, should LAX wish to make their presence known. Eli Drake will look to take advantage of Johnny Impact's mind being elsewhere, but must be wary that for LAX, it's them against the world!

Also on the show, Lashley will make his Impact Wrestling return, three weeks after "walking out" on the company. Back to update his "official status", Lashley has agreed to share the terms and details of his Impact Wrestling contract, in order to clear up recent speculation. With Moose waiting in the wings, desperate to face Lashley "one more time", this announcement will have a huge impact of the careers of both men going forward...

Adding to an already must-see episode of Impact Wrestling, we will be treated to the return of DJ Z, as well as a Knockouts Tag Team match between the teams of Allie & Rosemary and Sienna & Taryn Terrell. The show will also feature reaction to last week, particularly the shocking moment when Ethan Carter hit his "friend" Eddie Edwards with a One Percenter, as Eddie looked to play peacemaker between Carter and James Storm. Taking his feelings over the dissolution of "Team Impact" out on the one man who appeared to have his back, Ethan Carter will undoubtedly have to answer to Eddie Edwards - and James Storm - this week on Impact Wrestling!

Impact World Championship match
Johnny Impact (c) vs. Eli Drake
Allie & Rosemary vs. Sienna & Taryn Terrell
Andrew Everett, Caleb Konley & Trevor Lee vs. Dezmond Xavier, Petey Williams & Sonjay Dutt

First of all, thanks for the detailed replies it means a lot! Will get into them...

Prince Puma - A Puma/Mundo feud would be awesome, but with different gimmicks, it won't get stale. I'm thinking you bring him in as Ricochet. I think he has a lot of potential, and already has chemistry/history with Johnny. A Ricochet vs El Patron feud, and one with Lashley would also be excellent!!

Dalton Castle - He's been one of my favourite acts on the indie scene for a long time now. He can work as a heel, and as a babyface, and can start off as someone to build up from near the bottom of the roster. Unlike Ricochet, who seems to be a ready made top guy at this point.

Santana Garrett - I liked what I'd seen from her in NXT, but she SHONE in the Mae Young Classic. She lost to Kairi Sane, but it was an incredible match. She's so young, at just 22, so can improve a lot. And, she's also in a relationship with the aforementioned Ricochet

Those are just a few suggestions that would help a few divisions of your roster, but there are plenty of names out there that can help. I agree that star power at the top of the card is probably your biggest hole.
I agree with the lack of star power, as it is always difficult to find non-ex WWE guys to bring in as top stars and I appreciate the suggestions. Having assumed Richochet was WWE bound pre-game, I put him in NXT. Unsure if that is going to happen, but I won't be able to sign him. Garrett is someone who I will keep an eye on. Dalton is somebody who I haven't see too much of in-the-ring. Will watch more of his stuff on the back of the recommendation and see what I think

The fact that El Patron isn't joining LAX also makes sense and might be used for another turn of events later.

— I absolutely love what you're doing with Moose and Lashley. I think this feud has been lackluster because Lashley has been a little bit overshadowed by the rest of ATT, but now that we're going back to a feud only about Moose and Lashley, it seems more promising.

— That build-up for EC3 and Storm... I absolutely love it! What's going to happen is unpredictable. Is Storm going to turn on EC3 ? Is EC3 going to turn heel again and reignite his feud with the Cowboy ? Are they going to form a all-star tag team ? I can't wait to see what's in store for them ! Also, Eddie Edwards has the potential to become a top star and I'm glad you're seeing it.

— ELI DRAKE. That promo was insane. I was afraid that Drake would go back to meaningless feuds, but it seems like he will insert himself in the title picture again.

I can't wait for what's next. I absolutely love what you're doing with IMPACT. Great job!
— I expect that El Patron will come back as a face IRL, so I wanted to do something different to the direction I see them going post-BFG. Johnny has been brought in well, and I feel he is a good figurehead (not in-game) type guy for me at the moment. With Alberto and LAX, I don't feel he quite fits as a member, and the idea of the rich and powerful Patron using his association to further his career feels more natural. I want to play on the contrast that El Patron has a completely different lifestyle to them, and just throwing him in the group would feel awkward to me. As you say, the "marriage of convenience" also leaves it open ended.

— I have enjoyed some of ATT's involvement myself, but felt that the resolution of the rivalry should be about just them, I am pleased you agreewith that!

— I am late to reply to this, and I guess your questions have been answered. I also think Eddie has something that we don't have much of, and that is a really great in-ring performer. He is currently NOAH Champion (a promotion which is also human controlled in this multiplayer game), so I have big plans for him - and the working agreement with Pro-Wrestling NOAH going forward!

— Thanks, I worried myself about his direction, so to give him some form of motivation I put this in. Drake is someone who gets reactions, which is rare in Impact, so he definitely has a big role to play. I think that the event of BFG, losing to a guy he already beat before, would give him a huge chip on the shoulder, and I am hoping to play into the idea that he has been somewhat overlooked (which of course, given he was Champion, he hasn't) and wasn't friends with those in charge. I don't want it to cross into "shoot" type stuff talking about "politics", so I have to be careful with how I go with him.

Thanks angel, and your use of "Impact Legends" has given me an idea for Ethan's version of the team going forward. Maybe not those name specifically, but you have sprung something in my mind that I had been considering beforehand. I will be able to be clearer soon

Taya is somebody fresh to the roster, so she will be involved heavily. I am still establishing the roster in-game, but hopefully they can score decent ratings (Gail/Sienna wasn't too bad iirc).

(Lethal) Lockdown is one of the key moments in my long term plans for this save, so that's something to look out for (planned for around March I think).

Usually playing Impact, like most people, I have a focus on rebuilding the X Division (something I almost always fail at), but this time I feel that a good division has fallen on my lap. Hadn't really noticed it, but with everyone back from injury I really like the look of the division as it stands. Matt Sydal is a huge boost for the division, and with him around I feel they have recruited fairly well with young stars. Dezmond Xavier's Super X Cup win gave him good legitimacy, and as an in-game "Next Big Thing", I am exicted for his development.

Grado/Parks story threw me a bit, so I only have a vague path for it. Hopefully something useful can come out of it, if not, I guess it is okay as a bit of filler

Thanks again, hopefully I can maintain a good standard

Johnny Impact (c) vs. Eli Drake
Allie & Rosemary vs. Sienna & Taryn Terrell
Andrew Everett, Caleb Konley & Trevor Lee vs. Dezmond Xavier, Petey Williams & Sonjay Dutt
DJ Z vs. Idris Abraham
Amber Nova vs. Gail Kim
Fallah Bahh & Mario Bokara vs. V.O.W

Rebuilding the X-Division is always my focus as well, and I obviously agree on your Sydal point *points at avatar* Real pioneer for lightweights and TNA doesn't seem to care much if you're not always sober, so it's a perfect place for him. Xavier is good, Zema Ion has always been great, Sonjay and Petey are old school X-Division, mixed in with the new school of Andy & Trev, those seven talents alone are a great division. I'd bring in a talent or two of Japanese origin though, if it were me, as the market is a surplus at this time (as far as NJPW and other various talents coming to the States for work goes) and the division could maybe find place for a Japanese Junior. Perhaps a Luchador as well, considering Extreme Tiger had jumped ship before this diary started, I believe.
Big fan of your storytelling.

Johnny Impact (c) vs. Eli Drake (Because duh)
Allie & Rosemary vs. Sienna & Taryn Terrell (Feel like Allie and Rosemary will get their heat back from weeks prior)
Andrew Everett, Caleb Konley & Trevor Lee vs. Dezmond Xavier, Petey Williams & Sonjay Dutt (The future of the X-Division needs building and momentum where better then to beat former X div champs minus Xavier .)
DJ Z vs. Idris Abraham (DJZ return match don't see him losing and to Idris of all people maybe with some building)
Amber Nova vs. Gail Kim (Easy Squash DUH)
Fallah Bahh & Mario Bokara vs. V.O.W (I have more faith in V.O.W potential and can possibly continue Bahh/Bokara and Eli's thing whatever that is)

Johnny Impact (c) vs. Eli Drake
As much as I like E-Li-Drake, Impact should not be losing the title here.

Allie & Rosemary vs. Sienna & Taryn Terrell
Sienna picks up the win, cementing her status as a top knockout.

Andrew Everett, Caleb Konley & Trevor Lee vs. Dezmond Xavier, Petey Williams & Sonjay Dutt
Team Trevor Lee with the victory, continuing to plague the veterans.

DJ Z vs. Idris Abraham
DJ Z is making his return. He shouldn't lose here.

Amber Nova vs. Gail Kim
Nova is good but Gail Kim is a Hall-Of-Famer.

Fallah Bahh & Mario Bokara vs. V.O.W
I love the Veterans Of War tag team. Though the initials are almost the same as another tag team based in Ohio.

Impact World Championship match
Johnny Impact (c) vs. Eli Drake
Allie & Rosemary vs. Sienna & Taryn Terrell
I actually rate Taryn quite highly. Her matches and feud with Gail Kim was really very good stuff.
Andrew Everett, Caleb Konley & Trevor Lee vs. Dezmond Xavier, Petey Williams & Sonjay Dutt
DJ Z vs. Idris Abraham
Unique look. Lots you could do with that. Could be your version of Elias Samson. Could be a Samoan/Savage type fella. Not familiar with him at all though
Amber Nova vs. Gail Kim
Fallah Bahh & Mario Bokara vs. V.O.W
I'm a Crimson mark soooo....

Yeah check out Dalton Castle man!! So much charisma, and pretty good wrestling skills too.

"Drake/Impact - The Rematch"
Quote:
Location: Alberto El Patron’s “Home”
Duration: 3 minutes

Opening up the show, a pre-recorded segment will show the “home” of Alberto El Patron. A luxurious mansion, we will see Alberto Patron sat in a high-back armchair.
Welcoming the Impact Wrestling cameras into his home, Alberto El Patron will once again be in high spirits as he speaks directly down the lens. Alberto will say that he and LAX don’t live in the same house, and they don’t live on the same street. El Patron will say that he doesn’t have to hustle to get by, and he doesn’t live on the streets. El Patron will accepts that there are many differences between himself and the members of LAX, but nonetheless they are his “brothers and sisters”. Patron will say that it is for that very reason that they have formed an alliance, adding that their circumstances may be worlds apart - but when it comes to Impact Wrestling - they all share the same goal.
Video Package: Coming out of the opening sequence, we will go straight to a video package promoting tonight’s Main Event for the Impact World Championship. Going one on one with Johnny Impact, Eli Drake will take his rematch, owed following his defeat at Bound For Glory. As well as the issues between the two competitors, we will see the added element of Alberto El Patron and LAX, who appear intent on making their presence known and their impact felt on tonight’s Main Event match.

Promoting tonight’s show, Jeremy Borash and Josh Matthews will put over the fact that things are “heating up” in Impact Wrestling. This will lead to a discussion about Ethan Carter’s questionable actions last week, reaction to which will be heard when James Storm is interviewed later in the night. They will also introduce footage from earlier tonight… (4 minutes; including opening credits)
Quote:
Location: Entrance of the Building
Duration: 1 minute

Arriving at the entrance of the building, Bobby Lashley will keep his headphones on, ignoring the Impact Wrestling camera.
Speaking over Lashley’s arrival at the building, the commentators will put over the fact that Lashley will respond to Moose’s recent comments, as well as giving an “official status update” in relation to his Impact Wrestling contract.
Video Package: Heading back to footage from a recent episode, we will see Andrew Everett & Caleb Konley’s roll up victory over Petey Williams and Sonjay Dutt from the two weeks ago. Following the match, an impressed Williams and Dutt offered a handshake to the duo, which we will see being rejected by Everett & Konley. Going back to last week, we will see Williams and Dutt saving Matt Sydal from a planned attack from Everett, Konley and Trevor Lee, which they followed by offering advice to the arrogant, young trio.

Coming out of the footage, Jeremy Borash will point out the dismissive demeanor of the young athletes, suggesting there is a lot they could learn from two “pioneers” of the X Division. Matthews will disagree, saying that Dutt and Williams have no right to tell people not to act the way that they acted in their younger days. (2 minutes)


Andrew Everett, Caleb Konley & Trevor vs. Dezmond Xavier, Petey Williams & Sonjay Dutt
The story of this match was about the different in attitudes between Dezmond Xavier (who has a Super X Cup win to his name) and the three opponents. Taking all veteran advice on board, Xavier will form a good partnership with Dutt and Williams, as they look for revenge for their recent defeat. Victory will come their way, as Dezmond Xavier is able to score a victory, pinning Konley following a “Final Flash”.

Winners: Dezmond Xavier, Peter Williams & Sonjay Dutt
Duration: 9 minutes

Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 2 minutes

Regrouping in the ring following their victory, Sonjay Dutt and Petey Williams will bring Xavier back up to his feet.
Standing either side of Dezmond, the two men will raise the hand of the man who scored the decisive fall. Jeremy Borash will put this over as a big moment for Xavier, with two “gatekeepers” of the X Division giving him all of the credit for their victory over the three rookie athletes.
Quote:
Location: LAX “Club House”
Duration: 2 minutes

As is becoming a regular fixture, we will head over to LAX’s location, where Konnan will prepare to brief the group for tonight’s show. Before Konnan begins to speak, we will see that there are stacks on cash on the card table.
Explaining that their job tonight is to sit tight, Konnan tells LAX that they don’t need to get involved between Eli and Johnny, because them tearing each other apart is good for everybody. Konnan will say that after that, he doesn’t know yet, finishing off by telling his team that they waiting on word from “The Boss”.

Allie & Rosemary vs. Sienna & Taryn Terrell
Bringing together two established rivalries, it will be clear from the offset that Sienna and Terrell’s egos were too big to coexist. On the other side, Rosemary will be protective of Allie, and even when Sienna isolates her, Allie will continue to fight. A miscommunication between Taryn and Sienna will allow Allie to reach her partner, and from here Rosemary will lead the team’s comeback. Not fully committed to the team, Terrell will mostly watch as Rosemary runs wild, where she will eventually beat Sienna after hitting “The Red Wedding”.

Winners​: Allie & Rosemary
Duration: 7 minutes

Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 1 minute

Securing an impressive win, Rosemary will bring Allie back into the ring, raising her hand in victory!
Video Package: Showing footage from last week’s show, we will see the post-match interaction between Ethan Carter and James Storm. When the victorious Storm offered Carter a beer, the defeated Carter declined, throwing the beer to the ground. As tensions rose, stemming from Carter’s frustration at the dissolution of “Team Impact”, Eddie Edwards joined them in the ring, looking to play peacemaker. However, when Eddie Edwards’ back was turned, Carter grabbed him from behind, hitting him with a One Percenter. At a loss to explain his actions, we will see the smug look on Carter’s face following the cowardly attack.

Out of the video package, the commentators will talk about the incident, with Borash questioning what Ethan’s issue with Eddie could have been. Annoyed with Storm for obvious reasons, neither man can come up with a reason why Ethan Carter turned his back on Eddie Edwards, who appeared willing to remain an ally of Ethan Carter. (3 minutes)

Quote:
Location: On the Ramp
Duration: 8 minutes

Sending over to an interviewer on the ramp, we will see James Storm introduced to the segment. Asked for his thoughts on last week’s incident, Storm offer his first hand insight.
At a loss to explain Ethan Carter’s actions, James Storm will say that he isn’t here to try and understand the brain of Ethan Carter. In fact, Storm will say that he doesn’t get the confusion, Ethan was just being Ethan. James Storm will say that Carter is a selfish, egotistical sociopath and draw parallels between the surprise from his betrayal, to that of someone who would pick up a scorpion and then wonder why they got stung. James Storm will say that he never trusted Ethan Carter, and he only teamed with him for the good of Impact Wrestling. As James Storm says this, Ethan Carter will come out from the back, snatching the microphone from the interviewer’s hand.
Ethan Carter will act offended at Storm’s words, saying how dare James Storm call him a backstabber. Ethan will say that he wanted to take Team Impact forward, adding his belief that James Storm “turned his back” on the company that made him. This will anger James Storm, and Ethan Carter will hide behind the interviewer. Carter will try to continue talking, only for Storm to rip the microphone out of his hand. Storm will say that he isn’t here to listen to Carter’s delusions, he wants to kick Carter’s ass! Storm will add that he is going to go into the ring, and if Ethan wants to take the issue any further, then he is more than welcome to join him.

James Storm will give the microphone back, before marching down to the ring. When in the ring, Storm will sit on the middle rope, inviting Ethan Carter down. While Ethan will make his way down the entranceway, when Storm tells him to bring it on, Carter will walk up the Steel Steps but stop. Addressing Storm once more, Ethan Carter will say that he refuses to share a ring with an “Impact hating turncoat” like James Storm. Turning back around to leave however, Ethan Carter will look up to see Eddie Edwards running down the ramp.
Realising that Storm won’t be getting his hands on Ethan, Edwards decided to take matters into his own hands, but can’t reach Ethan. Reacting immediately, Ethan Carter will run towards the guardrail, jumping over it and running away through the crowd. Joining James Storm in the ring, Eddie will watch as Carter backs away.
Quote:
Location: Locker Room
Duration: 2 minutes

Heading into the locker room, we will see a miserable and exhausted looking Grado sat on a bench. Soon he will be joined by Joseph Parks.
Grado will tense up as his “representative” approaches him, before telling him “Joseph, ah cannae dae thes anymair”. This will anger Joseph, who will remind him that he’s on his last chance. Grabbing his “client” by the straps of his singlet, Joseph Parks will tell Grado he needs to “snap out of it”. Parks will say that this whole thing has been a test for Grado, because he knows there’s a monster inside of him. Grado will sigh, making it clear that he has zero self-confidence, but won’t be given a chance to reply. Instead, Joseph Parks will inform him that he has a rematch against Kongo Kong, and Parks will demand more from Grado, or else he may have to give his brother a call!
Vignette: A short series of clips will show several of DJ Z’s most impressive moves. A graphic will appear promoting his return… next! (1 minute)
Quote:
Location: In the Back
Duration: 2 minutes

Having caught up with Matt Sydal, the Impact Wrestling cameras ask the X Division Champion for his thoughts on the status of the X Division.
Sydal will explain that he isn’t interested in getting involved with all the drama, because life’s too short for that. However, when it comes to in ring talent of his fellow “X Division Athletes”, Matt Sydal is excited about the challenges that face him in the future. Talking up DJ Z, Matt Sydal will say that he can’t wait to see his return “later tonight”.

DJ Z vs. Idris Abraham
While the two competitors in this match will manage a fair amount of offence, the aim of the contest will be to show off DJ Z’s moveset in his return to the ring. This will result in a pretty decisive victory for the recently injured star, with the commentators putting over everything that DJ Z has come over in his time in Impact Wrestling. Cycling through his signature moves, DJ Z will finish the match with the “ZDT”.

Winner: DJ Z
Duration: 7 minutes

Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 2 minutes

Following a successful return to action, DJ Z will have his hand raised in the ring.
Put over as an “emotional moment” for DJ Z, Jeremy Borash will talk about everything he has overcome to remain in the company. It will also be put over that DJ Z didn’t just sit back and wait for his return, but actively went out and worked his way out of any ringrust. This will be seen as a huge advantage upon his return to the X Division, with Borash saying that he looked “100% out there tonight”. DJ Z’s desire to once again become the X Division Champion will also be discussed, with Matthews suggesting his eyes are firmly set upon Matt Sydal.

Quote:
Location: Entrance of the Building
Duration: 2 minutes

Returning for the second hour of the show, we will see footage marked “Earlier Today”.
Entering the building ahead of his rematch tonight, Eli Drake’s chances will be spoken about by the commentators. Noting that Drake is joined by his right hand man Chris Adonis, they will suggest that he may give Eli an edge tonight, if he can avoid being thrown out from ringside.
Footage will then show Johnny Impact’s arrival at the building, with the Bound For Glory main event winner carrying his Impact World Championship. The commentators will discuss his recent issues with LAX, and the effect that may have on his focus tonight.
Video Package: Produced to tell the whole story of the Moose / Lashley rivalry, the package will highlight the issues that the two men have had, dating back to Moose’s first night in Impact Wrestling. There will also be footage of their previous matches, where the dominant Lashley has always found a way to come out on top. This will be followed by more footage of Lashley’s complete dominance of Impact Wrestling with highlights including his short time as World Heavyweight, King of the Mountain and X Division Champion. The impression given from the video package will be that Lashley is a unstoppable force, who has done everything there is to do in Impact. (3 minutes)
Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 7 minutes

Making his way down to the ring, Lashley will pay no attention to the crowd, walking straight forward to where he needs to be. On commentary, Josh Matthews will call Lashley an “Impact Wrestling icon”, with Borash saying that there has never been a more “decisively dominant” competitor to have stepped inside the six sides.
Addressing the audience, Lashley will say that he doesn’t need to explain himself to anybody tonight, but to shut people up - especially Moose - he’s going to let everybody know his “official status” in Impact Wrestling. Lashley will also say that it’s a bad business move to discuss his contract, but right now, he has nothing to lose.

Lashley will then inform the audience that as of the 5th of November 2017 - and his match at Bound For Glory - he had completed his contractual obligations to Impact Wrestling. The only reason that he appeared on Impact three weeks ago is because he wanted to publicly announce his future plans. Not because he owes the fans or Impact Wrestling anything, but because he knows that wrestling fans love rumours. Lashley will put all the gossip to bed, saying that when he arrived at the building three weeks ago, he was offered a new, lucrative multi-year contract to remain with Impact Wrestling. Lashley will say that it’s nothing against this company, but he has no interest in continuing his Impact career. He will add that while he’s completed his scheduled dates with the company, he is still technically under contract until January 1st 2018. Lashley will say that after that date, he will be completely free to sign whatever he wants. The one thing Lashley knows is that he will not be resigning with Impact Wrestling, as he confirms tonight will be his final appearance with the company. Lashley will say that he has nothing left to achieve in the six-sided ring, and as a man with his strengths, his talents and his ambition, he is putting a stop to any speculation of “one more match” with Moose, confirming his departure from Impact Wrestling.

As Lashley leaves the ring, the commentators will speak about the former “Triple Crown” winner. While they will question his attitude towards the company, they will none the less pay tribute to the departing Lashley, who they will once again call an “Impact Wrestling icon”.

Amber Nova vs. Gail Kim
Relatively short and straight forward, this match will serve simply to put over Gail Kim. The commentators will also talk about the fact that Gail Kim last week agreed to face Taya Valkyrie, as one of her final matches before retirement at the end of the year. A one sided affair, Amber Nova will display a little bit of arrogance, looking to make her name off Kim. She will however fall to Gail Kim, who finishes her with an “Eat Defeat”.

Winner: Gail Kim
Duration: 5 minutes

Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 3 minutes

Following the match, the victorious Gail Kim will stand tall in the ring, holding her Knockouts Championship in the air.
As the commentators put over the fact that she will defend the Knockouts Championship against Taya Valkyrie in the near future, the new Number One Contender makes her way down to the ring.
Having been celebrating and focussing on the fans, Gail Kim won’t spot when Taya jumps her from behind, with the challenger leaving her laying out cold in the ring. With little motivation other than to send a message to the Champion, Taya will stand over the veteran Knockout, holding the title itself over her head.

Location: Parking Lot
Duration: 4 minutes

With the commentators once again discussing Lashley’s announcement that he was leaving Impact Wrestling earlier tonight, they will inform the audience that their cameras have caught up with Lashley, looking for word as he leaves an Impact Wrestling show for the final time.
Pulling his baseball cap over his face, Lashley will make it clear he has no interest in addressing the audience for a final time. However, as Lashley drags his luggage behind him, looking to make a quick getaway, he will be confronted by Moose.
Moose will grab Lashley on his shoulder, asking him if he is “for real”. Moose will say that Lashley can’t go out like this, questioning if that “BS” is really how he wants to be remembered. Lashley will look at Moose, but refuse to respond. Getting in his car, Lashley will be stopped by Moose. Moose will get Lashley to roll down his window, telling him to think of his legacy. Giving Moose nothing, Lashley will wind the window back up, driving out of the building and out of Impact Wrestling...

Fallah Bahh & Mario Bokara vs. V.O.W
Making their returns to Impact Wrestling, VOW will be put over as if they were new, with their history and background being put over on commentary. Bahh and Bokara will play up to their “foreigner” status, looking to use cheap tactics throughout the match. This will do them no good, as they fall to defeat once more. This will lead into discussion of Eli Drake’s words towards them last week, where he suggested they didn’t have what it takes to stay in Impact.

Winner: V.O.W
Duration: 5 minutes

Quote:
Location: Locker Room
Duration: 3 minutes

Given something of a free reign to discuss the upcoming Main Event, Eli Drake will be in the Locker Room, backed up by his friend Chris Adonis.
Eli Drake will talk about the fact that Johnny Impact should never have been the one to face him at Bound For Glory, saying that he had beaten Johnny Impact before. Eli Drake will say that he accepts that a lot of people have a lot riding on Johnny Impact being a success here in Impact Wrestling, and that means that he is going to be given opportunities. Drake will say that despite all that, the fact that he has beaten Johnny Impact before means that he knows that he can do it again.

Eli Drake will say that he was never given an opportunity, and he wasn’t seen as “Championship material” by a lot of people in Impact Wrestling. But when they put everybody in this company in one match, he came out on top. He will add that he beat Johnny Impact on that night… he beat him before Bound For Glory… and he knows that lightning won’t strike twice for Johnny Impact tonight.

“That’s not an insult… that is a fact of life!”
Video Package: Back from a commercial break, footage will show the moment that Eli Drake talked about, where he outlasted 19 other men to become the Impact World Champion. There will also be footage from the first time the two competitors in the Main Event went one on one, a match that Eli Drake won in controversial fashion. This will be followed by stills from Bound For Glory, including the reaction of Eli Drake as Chris Adonis was ejected from ringside. This resulted in Johnny Impact defeating Eli Drake, becoming the Impact Wrestling Champion. (3 minutes)

Returning to the secret location of LAX, Konnan will be looking at an old TV set, of which we can’t see the screen.
With the rest of LAX waiting on instructions, Konnan will hold his hand up as he receives a call…

Taking in the information from the otherside, Konnan will be deeply interested in what the caller has to say. When the call ends, Ortiz will ask “was it him?” and Konnan will nod his head. Konnan will then tell his men to “get ready” because “plans have changed…”
Impact World Championship

Johnny Impact (c) vs. Eli Drake
Heading into the Main Event, the commentators will put over the personal rivalry between the two men, with Borash suggesting the presence of Adonis stacks the odds against Johnny Impact, who will also have to keep LAX in the back of his mind. Adonis will try to convince the referee and Johnny that he won’t get involved, and Matthews will appear to fall for this, suggesting that the reason that Eli Drake is the favourite for this match is because he is the “complete package”.

Going into the action, the match should follow a similar pattern to their recent contests, although Chris Adonis will stick to his word and keep out of it. Eli Drake will avoid cheap tactics throughout the match, and hold his own against the impressive Impact World Champion. Eventually, the athleticism of Johnny Impact will allow him to take control, with him looking to retain the title and setting up for the “Impact Elbow”. However, before Johnny can connect with the move, the ringside area will be swarmed by the members of LAX.
This distraction will see Impact’s turn his attention to the outside, but he will be unable to split his focus. As a result, Homicide will be able to push him from the top turnbuckle, sending him throat first into the rope. This will lead to a DQ finish, as the referee leaves the ring as quickly as he can.

Winner: Johnny Impact (via DQ)
Duration: 12 minutes

Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 5 minutes

Entering the ring, where both men are, LAX will surround the two competitors from the Impact World Championship match.
Laying their boots into the two downed competitors, LAX will be instructed by Konnan on the outside. Watching on, Chris Adonis will look to retrieve his partner from the ring, but this will prove to be a bad decision.
With the two other men already laid out by sneak attacks, Chris Adonis will be quickly disposed off, being thrown out of the ring by Homicide, after Ortiz & Santana “rough him up”. Given that LAX now have a clear path, Konnan will enter the ring, looking down on Eli Drake and Johnny Impact. It will also be at this point that Alberto El Patron makes his way down to the ring.
Once Alberto El Patron begins to walk down to the ring, the commentators will suggest that he was the man who put LAX up to this. Taking the Impact World Championship title from the ringside assistant, Alberto El Patron will throw it onto the unconscious Johnny Impact as he enters the ring.

From here, Santana, Ortiz and Homicide will leave the ring, watching on from the outside. Konnan will then place his boot on the back of Johnny Impact, while Alberto El Patron will mirror the disrespect on Eli Drake’s. With both men standing triumphantly in the ring, they will embrace in a handshake. Jeremy Borash will point out that the two men looked to “seal the deal” in this way last week, but were stopped in their tracks. As the show ends on the previously promised “landmark” moment in the El Patron / LAX alliance, the handshake of two men with such a turbulent history will be used as proof by Jeremy Borash that Alberto El Patron will “stop at nothing” to become the next Impact World Champion! Josh Matthews will get the last word in, adding that with LAX on his side, there is “nothing” than can stop him from restoring his place at the very top of Impact Wrestling...

Great show. Especially love the build-up for DJZ as a legit competitor overcoming struggles. I'd say you should revert him back to the Zema Ion name with his gimmick change, but just a suggestion. Between the injuries and the growth that was building inside his bladder, can't help but feel a comeback story on the way.
Sydal stuff was simple and effective as well. Though everyone thought you were using that six man tag to give the younger guys a rub... I think it works better to use the great vets that still go to put over Xavier as a teammate for now. Sets him up to take the torch eventually, rather than burying the vets right off the bat.

"Show Your Colours"
Quote:
Location: In The Back (last week)
Duration: 3 minutes

Opening up the show, footage will be played from after last week’s show. Storming through the back, we will see Eli Drake. Drake will be followed by his right-hand man, Chris Adonis.
Barely making coherent sentences, Eli Drake will storm through the back, shouting the odds at whoever he come into contact with. Drake will pass referees, agents and other crew members, completely outraged at what had just happened. Eli Drake will ask who he needs to talk to in order to get answers around here, complaining that “this is what happens when there’s nobody in charge!”

Noticing the Impact Wrestling cameras following him, the furious and fired up Eli Drake will demand that something is done about LAX, passionately threatening that if no action is taken, he will have to take matters into his own hands!
Video Package: Giving context to the footage that had just been shown, the finish to last week’s episode will be replayed. With Johnny Impact looking to secure victory, LAX made their presence felt, resulting in a DQ finish to Eli Drake’s Impact World Championship rematch. Taking both men competitors out, LAX cleared the way for Konnan and Alberto El Patron to formally “seal the deal” of their recently formed alliance, shaking hands with their feet on the backs of the Champion and the challenger.

Coming out of the footage, Jeremy Borash and Josh Matthews will introduce the show, talking about the shocking events of last week. Josh Matthews will make it clear that he feels the balance of power has massively shifted towards the El Patron / LAX “coalition”. Pointing out that Konnan and LAX had previously physically harmed El Patron’s family, Jeremy Borash will call Alberto El Patron a “twisted, moral blank” whose desperation to become the Impact World Champion has warped everything he has ever stood for. As they discuss this, the music of LAX will begin to play… (4 minutes introducing opening credits)
Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 8 minutes

Making the way to the ring from their own personal entranceway, LAX will fill the ring. Taking a microphone, Konnan will address the audience.
Konnan will say that last week was the start of their “guerilla war” on Impact Wrestling and “the white mafia”. Konnan will add that for so long, their people have been held down, and while people might not agree with their actions, he will say that they have to accept that there are “no rules in war”. Konnan will add that this is a war, and it could have so easily been avoided. Konnan will say that Alberto wasn’t the first to be wrongly accused of something, but he was the first to be considered guilty without trial. He will say that the Champion of this company was treated as a second class citizen and that was the moment this company sealed it’s fate and secured it’s demise.

Konnan will then turn to the future, pointing out that the time for “asking” for fair treatment, the time of “expecting” justice to prevail is over in this country, and this war isn’t limited to Impact Wrestling. Konnan will say that all over the world, people are growing tired of those in power holding them down, but “revolution will not be given… we the people will have to take it!” Konnan will say that one man who is ready to take action is Alberto El Patron, a man who represents all of their “people” and a man who Konnan is proud to call an ally. With that, the music of Alberto will begin to play, and LAX will clap as he makes his way to the ring.
Alberto will enter the ring, hugging Konnan and taking the microphone from him, El Patron will address the crowd. Putting over Konnan’s contribution to Lucha Libre, El Patron will say that Konnan is a “mentor” to him, and a man who is treated like royalty in Mexico. El Patron will add that in Mexico, his family are also treated like royalty, and he came to this company to represent his people. But instead of allowing him to do that, this company stripped him of his identity, stripped him of his dignity… and stripped him of his title! El Patron will say that what happened last week to Eli Drake and Johnny Impact was a carefully laid out plan, because they had to send a message. That message is that “no matter what they say to us, no matter what they take from us… the spirit of ‘our people’ will never be held down!”

In the ring, Konnan will lead applause from LAX, who the commentators will suggest have quickly and clearly got into the head of Alberto El Patron. As the group stay in the ring, Garza Jr. will make his return to Impact Wrestling, with the announcers wondering what he is doing here.
Entering the ring, Garza will say to Konnan that he doesn’t know what has happened before in this company, but since the current management took over, and he was brought into Impact, he has been given every opportunity to showcase his talents. Alberto El Patron will say “listen, perro…” but Garza will cut him off. This will annoy Alberto El Patron, and Garza will tell him to “listen”. Garza will say that he doesn’t know the history of these guys, but he knows one thing: “you do not represent me… and you do not represent our people”. Garza will look to continue, expounding the virtues of hard-work and self belief, suggesting that Konnan’s philosophy of cheap tactics and ambushes isn’t that of the wrestling culture he represents.

Konnan will take the microphone back, furious asking Garza “where he has been since Bound For Glory?” pointing out that he hasn’t been called by Impact since then. Garza Jr. will fire back, saying that what he has done since Bound For Glory isn’t complain and whine, Garza Jr. has worked on his game, because he knows in his heart that he has what it takes to make it in Impact Wrestling! Konnan will be annoyed by this, and warn Garza Jr. that he is about to be taught a lesson about who LAX really are. However, Alberto El Patron will stop Konnan in his tracks, telling him that he doesn’t need to act drastically. El Patron will say that Garza Jr. has interrupted them, and he has tried to undermine their cause. Alberto will say that a beatdown won’t teach Garza Jr. anything, adding that “The Boss” has got this. El Patron will stand over Garza Jr., looking to intimidate him, he will then inform him that later tonight, Alberto El Patron is going to teach him a lesson in respect!

Having been caught in the back, we see Johnny Impact watching the action going on in the ring on a TV monitor. Asked for his reaction to the events of last week, Johnny Impact will give his opinion.
Johnny Impact will speak of his lack of surprise at what happened, and will say that he doesn’t know what the next step is. Impact will say that he is angry, and he could have gone out there all guns blazing, but LAX have made this into a war. Impact will say that this means that they have to strategize, they have use their heads instead of their hearts, and they have to be smart and protect this company. Johnny Impact will say that they will get their revenge, and the values of this company will prevail, but they have to pick the right moment. As Johnny Impact appears to be finishing, he will be approached by Garza Jr.
Johnny will be pleased to see Garza Jr., and will praise him for speaking out against LAX and Alberto El Patron. Garza Jr. will be wished luck in his match tonight, and will reply by telling Johnny that the reason he is here is to talk about that. Garza Jr. will say that he did put his neck on the line tonight, and because of that he needs to see this through. As much as he understand Johnny’s anger, he asks him that if he must get involved with LAX tonight, that it be after the final bell of his match with Alberto El Patron. Johnny Impact will be understanding, calling the match a huge opportunity for Garza. The two men will then shake hands, before going their separate ways.
Video Package: Footage will show the downfall of Joseph Parks and Grado’s relationship, which culminated in a Monster’s Ball match featuring Joseph’s “brother” Abyss at Bound For Glory. When Grado lost the match, he was supposed to leave the country, until Joseph gave him a second chance. Demanding to see more from Grado, Parks told his client that he believes there is a “monster” inside Grado, and if he wants to stay in Impact, he will have to let it out (2 minutes)


Grado vs. Kongo Kong

The commentators will compare the monster “inside” of Grado, to the very real one in the ring. Once again overpowering Grado, as he had two weeks ago, Kongo Kong will take control of the match. However, as he looks to stalk the struggling Grado, Joseph Parks will jump into the ring.
Kongo Kong will come at Parks, who will stop him in his tracks. Joseph Parks will then lift Grado to his feet, grabbing his face. Joseph Parks will demand more from Grado, who will say that he can’t do it. This will lead to Joseph Parks grabbing him by the straps of his singlet. Growing impatient, Kongo Kong will try to get at Grado, and Joseph Parks will tell Grado “you have to do this!” Confronting Kongo Kong, Parks will be lead out of the ring by the referee. However, the distraction of the referee will allow Grado to hit Kongo Kong with a kick to the nuts. Sending the monster to his knees, Grado will come back with the “Wee Boot”. Having broken the rules, Grado is able to pin Kongo Kong, scoring a victory.

Winner: Grado
Duration: 6 minutes

Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 2 minutes

Returning to the ring after the match, Joseph Parks will have a smile on his face, proud of Grado’s actions.
The commentators will suggest that Grado is being corrupted by Joseph Parks, but he won’t care. Finally doing what Joseph Parks asked of him, Grado will have his hand raised by the man who is described as “holding his future in the balance”.
Video Package: Going back to the recent issues between Rosemary and Sienna, footage will show the moment that Rosemary stopped KM from influencing Sienna's Knockouts Championship rematch. As a result, Gail Kim retained the Championship. This has led to Sienna and KM targeting Rosemary, who has thus far got the better of them. (2 minutes)


Rosemary vs. Sienna
Coming into this match alone, Rosemary will have to be well aware of KM throughout the match, looking towards him as soon as the match goes underway. Throughout the match, these momentary distractions will allow Sienna several opportunities to take control, serving her well throughout the contest. However, when Rosemary takes control of the match, it will appear that she is closing in on victory. This of course, won’t account for KM’s involvement, and his distraction of the referee will result in the end of the match.
Going over to KM, who has climbed onto the apron, Rosemary will look set to repeat the Red Mist that she sprayed in KM’s face four weeks ago. However, when KM drops down from the apron, Rosemary will be rolled up by Sienna for the decisive fall!

Winners: Sienna
Duration: 6 minutes

Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 4 minutes

Leaving the ring after her victory, Sienna will lead KM up the ramp. However, when she reaches the halfway point, Sienna will stop, leading her huge cousin back down to the ring.
With Rosemary now on her knees, KM will stand over her, while Sienna hits her with a Boot which sends her backwards. However, as KM begins to laugh, his face will change as Rosemary theatrical “reanimates”. Sienna and KM will take a step back, shocked at the resilience of Rosemary. When they come back at her, Rosemary will raise a finger, stopping them in their tracks. Rosemary will then make a gesture which results in the building’s lighting going out. When the lights come back up, Rosemary is not alone.
Stood behind Rosemary in the ring, the former Decay member Crazzy Steve will have made his return. Acting in his usual bizarre manner, Steve will freak out KM and Sienna, who will leave the ring as quickly as they possibly can. This will leave the two former Decay members in the ring, as Jeremy Borash puts over the return of Crazzy Steve!
Video Package: Going back to last week, footage will show Lashley’s “official status update”, where Lashley confirmed that he had completed his obligations as a member of the Impact Wrestling roster. Lashley also stated that he had received an offer of a new deal, before confirming he would leave the company with immediate effect. This will be followed by a brief clip of Moose and Lashley “parking lot confrontation”, as Moose tried to convince Lashley to face him one last time. (2 minutes)
Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 6 minutes

Making his way down to the ring, ahead of his first scheduled match since Bound For Glory, Moose will address the audience before the contest gets under way.
Taking a microphone, Moose will say that everybody heard what Lashley had to say last week, and he will admit that the was angry when he first heard it. Moose will say that what he saw last week from Lashley, and the way he just drove away from Impact, wasn’t the real Lashley. Moose will however accept that he has tried everything, suggesting that maybe now is just time to move on. Moose will say he has a match he has to focus on right now, and he isn’t going to take his eyes off his other goals in Impact Wrestling (such as becoming Impact World Champion). Moose will finish by saying that while he has to look elsewhere, until the 1st of January 2018, he knows that there’s still a tiny possibility that he will get this match. Moose will say until Lashley is completely out of the door, he will fight to get his match!

Chris Adonis vs. Moose
With seemingly little reason for this match to take place, the commentators will talk about Moose’s chase of Lashley, and Chris Adonis’ desire to prove himself as more than Eli Drake’s lackey. The match will be fairly short, with Moose taking control, and the finish will do nothing to help Adonis’ cause.
Coming down to the ring when Adonis has been thrown to the mat by Moose, Eli Drake will grab Chris Adonis and pull him out of the ring. He will then tell the confused Adonis “some things are more important than this” before leading him up the ramp. With a confused Moose left in the ring, the referee will count Chris Adonis out.

Winners: Moose (by countout)
Duration: 5 minutes

Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 1 minute

Out of sight following the ringing of the bell, Eli Drake and Chris Adonis will leave Moose in the ring alone.
Putting his hands on his hips, and shaking his head, Moose will clearly not be happy with the manner of his victory. Borash will point out how things aren’t going Moose’s way recently, while Josh Matthews will suggest that they won’t, until he finally gets his issues with Lashley resolved...

Returning from the break, to begin the second hour, the commentators will recap the events of the night so far. They will then take us back to the recent issues between Ethan Carter and James Storm, after the latter decided to dissolve the temporary “Team Impact” which he had build to take on the threat of “Team AAA”. This will lead them to introduce footage of what happened two weeks ago, when the two men went one on one.

Video Package: Beginning with the finish to the Carter/Storm match, where Storm defeated Carter with a Last Call, the footage will then show the post-match argument between the two men, after Carter refused to take a beer from Storm. When Eddie Edwards came out to play peacemaker, Ethan Carter dropped him on his head with a One Percenter, leaving him out cold in the ring. The package will then show last week’s incident, where Ethan Carter interrupted an interview with James Storm, to call the Impact Original a “turncoat” and a “traitor”. This led to Storm inviting Carter to the ring for a fight, which Carter denied by claiming he would not share the ring with an “Impact hating turncoat”. After this, Eddie Edwards looked for revenge of his own, but as we see, Ethan Carter managed to escape through the crowd.(3 minutes)
Quote:
Location: In-Ring
Duration: 7 minutes

Straight out of the video package, Ethan Carter’s music will begin to play, and a serious demeanor will remain with Carter as the enters the ring.
Ethan Carter will take a microphone, telling the ring announcer to introduce him again. After Carter tells the ring announcer what to say, he will be introduced as “representing Team Impact… Ethan Carter”. Ethan Carter will then talk about his recent actions, saying that all he has ever wanted to do was to represent Impact Wrestling. Carter will say that he would never try to downplay the achievements of his former partners, but the way they have acted recently is “indefensible”. Carter will then say that he has a lot to get off his chest, and to be even allowed to be here right now - enacting his first amendment right - Ethan had to give something up. Carter will say that he didn’t think that was how things worked in Impact Wrestling, but to ensure that he wouldn’t be attacked or interrupted tonight, he had to agree to face Eddie Edwards next week.

Ethan Carter will say that he was forced to agree to those “terror-like tactics” from Eddie Edwards and James Storm, but their agreement means that he can get everything he needs to say off his mind. With that, a smirk grows across his face. Carter will then explain that Team Impact wasn’t just a name to him, and it wasn’t something to throw away like James Storm did. Carter will say that Team Impact represented three vastly different guys coming together, to defend the company they all loved. Ethan Carter will ask “is that so wrong?” Carter will say that instead of that, James Storm saw it as a temporary necessity, in order to save his own skin.

“But defending Impact Wrestling isn’t a one time deal… I’ve been protecting this company for 4 damn years!”

Ethan Carter will then say that James Storm was open about his treacherous nature, but the reason he took Edwards out is because he is a “coward”. Carter will say that Eddie Edwards was just as ready to turn his back on this company as anybody else, but instead he let James Storm do his dirty work. Carter will say that both of them are exactly the same, adding that if they don’t want to be part of his team, then they are “enemies of Impact“.

Carter will say that with enemies as cunning and talented as he knows they both are, it falls to him - as his duty as the last bastion of the true values of Impact Wrestling - to build the defence against the enemy within. Two weeks ago, Ethan Carter offered James Storm a place in Team Impact, and he turned it down. Carter will say that everybody in this building saw Storm spit on the entire history of Impact Wrestling, adding that Storm may as well wear an “I Hate Impact” t-shirt. Moving on to Eddie Edwards, Ethan Carter will say that his transgression was even more deceitful, as he looked to slip under the radar, telling the audience to “make no mistake”, Eddie hates this company as much as James Storm. Ethan Carter will then tell fans that in times like this, they are fortunate to have somebody like Ethan Carter, who will defend Impact Wrestling until the death.

“We are under attack from our own… next week, against Eddie Edwards, the fight back begins!”

With his rallying cry, Ethan Carter will leave the ring, with Jeremy Borash not convinced on his message. Borash will suggest that Ethan is acting in a delusional manner, which leads Matthews to wonder if Borash is one of the traitors too!

Returning from the commercial break, Andrew Everett, Caleb Konley and Trevor Lee will make their way to the ring together, for Konley’s match with X Division Champion Matt Sydal, up next. With the three men waiting for Matt, they will instead be confronted by Petey Williams and Sonjay Dutt, who each have a microphone.
Suggesting that Caleb Konley needs to prove what he can do alone, Dutt will say that Andrew Everett and Trevor Lee should leave ringside and let him get the job done himself. Petey Williams will look to rile Konley up, stating that everybody knows that he can’t do it alone. Now with a microphone, Trevor Lee will tell them to shut up, but Konley will grab the microphone from the apparent leader of the trio. Caleb Konley will tell Dutt and Williams “I can do this alone… and I will”. Having got under his skin, Dutt and Williams will applaud his decision, as Konley sends Everett and Lee to the back.

Caleb Konley vs. Matt Sydal
Serving himself better in defeat than he ever would have in a victory assisted by Lee & Everett, Caleb Konley will hold his own against the X Division Champion, visibly impressing Sydal throughout the match. Both men will look to put on an exciting “high spots” based match, which will eventually be won by the X Division Champion. Hitting his “Shooting Star Press”, Matt Sydal will score the win in a closely contested match.

Winner: Matt Sydal

In the back, the cameras will catch up with Moose, asking him about where he currently stands in Impact Wrestling.
Moose will admit that without having this match will Lashley, he feels directionless. Moose will say that he has put all of his eggs into the basket of facing Lashley one more time, and he doesn’t know where he can go from here. Moose will say that he simply can’t give up, and he will address Lashley one more time - next week. As Moose looks to walk away, an incident will be caught on the cameras, which they will follow. The incident will be an ongoing argument between Chris Adonis and Eli Drake.
Chris Adonis will be angry about Eli Drake withdrawing him from his match earlier, telling him that he can’t control Chris’ career for his own needs. Eli Drake will say that he “needs this”, but Chris Adonis will tell him that he’s going nowhere near it. While it won’t be clear what they’re talking about, Adonis will storm off, making it clear that he isn’t on board with whatever Eli has proposed.

Coming down to the ring for what the commentators call “one of the last times”, Gail Kim will carry her Knockouts Championship over her shoulder. Ensuring that she embraces the fans around ringside, Gail Kim will eventually enter the ring.
Gail Kim will address the audience, pointing out that three weeks ago, when she was cut off by Taya Valkyrie, she was preparing to make an announcement. Gail Kim says that since then, Taya has changed things, and Kim’s plans had to change. Gail will say that she still has something to say, but she thinks it’s best if she says it to Taya’s face! This will bring Taya out.
Smug from last week’s attack, Taya will take a microphone of her own, boasting about what she did to the Knockouts Champion. Mocking the fans adoration of Gail Kim, Taya will anger the Knockouts Champion. Gail will say that after the sneak attack last week, Taya is lucky the she hasn’t dropped her where she stands. Gail will add that she could do that, but what she has to say is far more important.

Getting in Taya’s face, Gail Kim will say that at the end of this year, she will retire from Pro Wrestling. Talking up her experience with Impact Wrestling, Gail will talk about how she sees a lot of complaining from roster members, but says that her time with Impact has been the greatest of her career. Gail Kim will put over the importance of the Knockouts Championship, which she has held more than anybody, before coming to her announcement. Gail Kim will tell that Taya that she will face her next week, and after that she will wrestle one more match in Impact Wrestling. Gail will add that whatever happens, she has one goal in mind - retiring as Knockouts Champion!

Gail Kim will say that her dream is to appear at the first episode of Impact in 2018 and lay down the Championship, ushering in a new era of the Knockouts Division. Taya will say that there is no chance that she will still have that title by the end of the year, mocking the fantasy world Gail lives in. However, before Taya has chance to continue, Gail will hit her with a Forearm, knocking her to the mat. Coming out of nowhere, Taya will be shocked as the forearm drops her to the mat. Gail Kim will then tell Taya that she didn’t think she’d get away with what she did last week, did she? She will then add that this was just a preview, telling her that their match for the Knockouts Championship is next week!

Heading over to the back, Impact cameras will have caught up with James Storm, looking for his reaction to Ethan Carter’s words earlier tonight.
James Storm will say that Ethan Carter has a twisted, warped mind, and he knows that the fans will see right through it. He will admit that he had to hold back when Ethan said that he was an “enemy of Impact”. Storm will say that he knows how much getting his hands of Ethan next week means to Eddie Edwards, which is why he bit his tongue. After that, Storm will say that he is right behind Eddie, next in line to face Ethan!
Video Package: Taken back to earlier in the night, footage will replay the opening segment. Recapping Alberto and Konnan’s promos, Garza’s assertion that they don’t represent him, or the people they claim to represent, will be shown. This led to Alberto El Patron laying down the challenge for Garza to face him in the Main Event. (2 minutes)


Alberto El Patron vs. Garza Jr.
The goal of this match will to show off Garza Jr. as being able to hang with Alberto El Patron, for who this is the first match in Impact Wrestling since August. Returning to the ring, Alberto El Patron will be dismissive of Garza Jr., giving the air of somebody who is completely above the challenge. This will backfire, and Garza should come close on a couple of occasions. One such instance, a nearfall from a roll-up will light the fire in Alberto, and he will begin to take control of the match. From here, Alberto El Patron will display a hard hitting, grittier style, which will allow him to dominate proceedings. Garza Jr. will look to fight back, but El Patron will be able to manhandle him, locking a Cross Armbreaker in which leaves Garza no choice but to submit.

Winner: Alberto El Patron

Having won the match, Alberto El Patron will stand tall as his arm is raised in victory. Rolling out under the bottom rope, El Patron will leave Garza Jr. down in the ring.
However, as Alberto El Patron reaches halfway up the ramp, he will raise his hand, gesturing to the LAX entranceway. With Garza Jr. trying to get back to his feet, he will soon be surrounded by LAX, who will circle the ring, before each taking a corner.
Nodding his head, Konnan will initiate the attack on Garza Jr., who the commentators will suggest is being punished for speaking out against Alberto and LAX earlier in the night. Beating down Garza Jr. in the ring, Homicide, Ortiz and Santana will lay into him, before setting up for a “Street Sweeper”. As they look to hit the move, Johnny Impact will eventually make his way down to the ring, looking to help Garza Jr.
Before Johnny Impact reaches the ring, the Tag Team Champions will manage to hit the “Street Sweeper”, rolling Garza to the outside. This will leave the three men ready for Johnny Impact, and he will enter the ring. Putting up a great fight, Johnny Impact will have no choice but to recklessly swing at the three men, struggling to cope with the offence. Eventually, the three men will be able to beat Johnny Impact to the mat, before he finds help from the most unlikely source.
With the gang attack continuing in the ring, the former Champion Eli Drake will run down the ramp. Grabbing Ortiz, Eli Drake will hit him with a right hand, before going to work on the other members. Eventually, the numbers will catch up with Drake as well, but Johnny Impact will be able to get back to his feet, returning the favour and helping Eli Drake fight them off. Now both of their feet, Eli Drake and Johnny Impact will stand shoulder to shoulder, managing to clear the ring of Homicide, Ortiz and Santana.

As a result of this fight back, Konnan will regroup LAX, deciding that it is better to live to fight another day. Stood together in the ring, Eli Drake and Johnny Impact will share an awkward moment. Eli Drake will point to LAX, telling Impact “this was about them”. He will then pointing back and forth between himself and Impact, telling Johnny “this wasn’t about you… it was about the numbers.” Eli Drake will then roll out of the ring, leaving Johnny Impact - who will remain in shock that Eli Drake fought beside him - standing in the ring.

Turning to the audience, Johnny Impact will make it clear that he isn’t sure what had just happened, shrugging and maintaining his confused expression. Going off the air, the commentators will suggest that Eli Drake has realised that he can’t expect to regain his Championship, unless he stands side by side with the man who he despises the most. They will then promote next week’s show, which will surely see Johnny Impact’s reaction to tonight’s events...

If TNA/Impact put as much effort into their booking as you do into yours they'd be a whole lot better off.
