As I sat in the clubhouse of the Eddie Stanky Field I could not have been more nervous knowing that tonight was the night I was going to make my on screen debut for Impact Wrestling. I was still very nervous about the card we were presenting with a special Basebrawl effort with the South Alabama Jaguars, but at least I was starting to key in on what the issue was. We needed some more wrestlers to fill out the midcard. We had the X-Division athletes and we had some good Main Event talent, but our midcard and upper midcard was void of wrestlers and that was something that I was going to need to work on, although I would have the World X Cup coming up that would take up some time while I figured it out.....
Quote:
Match 1: Jimmy Rave vs. Paul London

Thoughts on the Match: Another week, another try out as I continue to try and add to our roster with capable workers. Jimmy Rave is a wrestler that hasn’t been on the national scene for a while but is someone who has a good amount of experience and has been around the world. I also like his size as he is someone who can conceivably work in both the X-Division as well as be a jobber to the stars in the other matches. To say I really hoping he would come through in this match would be an understatement, and I’m happy to say that he did manage to earn a contract with us after this match as him and Paul London put on a very solid contest with Matt Sydal once again at the commentator’s table speaking about his “third eye” and “his destiny” while Paul London actually backed it up in the ring.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Paul London defeated Jimmy Rave in 12:50 by pinfall with a Shooting Star Press.

Grade: C
Quote:
After the match Sydal continued to run Paul London down, and Paul London came over and they started to argue and get into a shoving match. That was when Don broke it up and told them that Sydal didn’t need to worry about facing London, because that match was never on the cards. Paul London will face YANG at Slammiversary in the battle of the undefeated, but Matt Sydal would be defending the X-Division Championship against…..


…..JUSHIN THUNDER LIGER!
Quote:
After the commercial there was special message from Johnny Impact as the “Mayor of Slamtown” promised he would be back at Slammiversary and was looking for some competition.
Quote:
Match 2: Cage vs. Dezmond Xavier

Thoughts on the Match: After a week off Cage was back with his manager Josh Matthews, and this highlighted my problem with our midcard as I would rather Cage was not wrestling against X-Division competitors but the roster can only stretch so far. With that said Cage and Xavier put on a really good match with Cage using his impressive size to toss Dezmond around before Xavier used his speed to take Cage down. Finally Cage caught Dezmond and ended the match with the Drill Claw.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Cage defeated Dezmond Xavier in 8:10 by pinfall with a Drill Claw.

Grade: C-
Quote:
After the match an irate Josh Matthews got on the microphone and complained about Moose asking for a shot at the World Championship, had he not been paying attention to the path of destruction that Cage had been on? If anyone deserves to be declared the #1 Contender to the World title then it’s the Machine…CAGE!
Quote:
Alicia Atout interviewed Jake Hager and James Storm and announced that at Slammiversary we were going to get two big matches with Jake Hager facing off against Rey Mysterio Jr and James Storm getting a singles match against Rey fenix, but they were here to talk about their tag team match against Impact Wrestling legends Matt Morgan and D’Angelo Dinero and Storm once again brought up how “Impact Wrestling can afford to pay those two nobodies but sent me packing? It just isn’t right.” Hager followed up on the theme talking about how there was so much wrong in their society right now, but that slowly the world was changing and America would be made great again!
Quote:
Match 3: Laredo Kid vs. YANG

Thoughts on the Match: Laredo Kid made his return to Impact Wrestling television without his former partner Garza Jr and looked to make an impact. But it was the undefeated YANG who managed the victory pretty quickly a week before he would be in a tag team match against one of the greatest Junior’s wrestlers of all time!

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, YANG defeated Laredo Kid in 5:42 by pinfall with a Corkscrew Moonsault.

Grade: C
Quote:
Another video played showing the NJPW debut of Taiji Ishimori and his entrance into the Bullet Club as the new “Bone Soldier.”
Quote:
Match 4: “Bone Soldier” Taiji Ishimori vs. Matt Bentley

Thoughts on the Match: The fans responded to the “Bone Soldier” outfit, but after that it was still Taiji Ishimori in the ring so the match was not as good as I would have liked. With that said I’m almost done with using Matt Bentley as he has managed to prove absolutely nothing during his opportunities. In the end Ishimori got the victory and we’re down to two World X Cup Captain’s to compete. During this match Rob Moore and Don Callis announced that next week it would be the Canadian Captain in action as “The Canadian Destroyer” Petey Williams returned!

Result: In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Taiji Ishimori defeated Matt Bentley in 13:08 by pinfall with a Double Chickenwing Driver.

Grade: D+
Quote:
Up next we showed a sit down interview with Rich Swann and his wife, Su Yung without makeup on although that connection was not acknowledged on screen. First off Swann talked about how happy he was to be in Impact and then Callis gently got things to open up about the domestic incident that had led to Swann leaving WWE. Together Swann and his wife said they wanted to forget the past and focus on their present and their future “And focus on positivity. And have our careers be on the up and up
.

Quote:
LAX gathered in the ring with Eddie Kingston and Konnan made his way out after being gone for several months. With everyone in the ring Eddie welcomed Konnan back and tried to hug him, but then Konnan went off on him accusing Eddie of setting up a “hit on him.” At first Eddie denied it, but then he finally said “screw it” and went off on Konnan and told him that his time was past and that all he did he did for Ortiz and Santana because it was time for them to drop the “dead weight” if they ever wanted to be on top. “It’s either him or me, next week you’re going to have to make the choice.”
Quote:
Match 5: Kongo Kong vs. Kevin Riley

Thoughts on the Match: Another try out match for Kevin Riley, the former Alex Riley, and another squash for Kongo Kong who was accompanied by his manager Jimmy Jacobs. Riley had some good fire in the beginning, but Kong was too much for him to overcome and Kongo ended it in short order.

Result: In a bout that didn't have much heat and terrible wrestling, Kongo Kong defeated Kevin Riley in 6:26 by pinfall with The Cracker-jack.

Grade: D
Quote:
Jimmy Jacobs began to talk about Johnny Impact after the match when Chandler Park came running out from the back and attacked Kongo Kong with Joseph Park trying to hold him back and finally throwing him off and then Kong and Jacobs retreated.
Quote:
Alicia Atout had a sit down interview with the Tag Team Champions, where DJ Z asked to be addressed as Zema Ion again going forward as he was done hiding behind a loud speaker and it was time for his actions to do the talking. Both men talked about how they were brought together and they wanted to show the world they were more than just a “flash in the pan” and they were going to prove that they could be a great tag team and they were issuing an Open Challenge for Slammiversary against any team that wanted to “step up.”
Quote:
Match 6: “American Great” Jake Hager/James Storm vs. D’Angelo Dinero/Matt Morgan

Thoughts on the Match: I was very impressed with Dinero and Morgan and their try out matches so I wanted to give them another chance in a Main Event situation against the team of Hager and Storm who needed some momentum. The end result as a really good tag team match with Hager and Storm working well together as they overcame the team of Dinero and Morgan with James Storm getting a victory in his first match since returning to Impact Wrestling.

Result: In a decent match, Jake Hager and James Storm defeated Matt Morgan and D'Angelo Dinero in 13:33 when James Storm defeated Matt Morgan by pinfall with a Lung Blower.

Grade: C+
Quote:
After the match Hager and Storm were not satisfied with a victory, and went for a beat down to send a message and they were joined by Austin Aries but then the Lucha Brotherhood arrived on the scene and everything broke down into a giant brawl.
Quote:
Hulk Hogan was out to announce the latest member of the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame, but before he could open the envelope with the announcement in it…….I made my first on screen appearance for Impact Wrestling. With a microphone in my hand I walked down the ramp and joined Hogan in the ring before announcing that I didn’t think we didn’t need much fanfare when it came to announcing who would be entering the Hall of Fame this year as he is one of the biggest names in wrestling, “let me save you the trouble of opening that envelope Hulk….because this years entry into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame is…..the “Immortal” Hulk Hogan!!!

X-Plosion Tapings:

Rob Moore and Don Callis welcome everyone to the show, review Impact Wrestling from Thursday night and then announce that at Slammiversary we would be getting a #1 Contenders match for the Undisputed, Unified Impact Wrestling World Championship when we had a match between “Mr Impact” Moose and the “Machine”….CAGE!

In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Drago and Aero Star defeated Desi Hit Squad in 7:45 when Aero Star defeated Gursinder Singh by pinfall with an Imploding Senton Bomb. (D+)

We had a grungy looking, think ECW, backstage promo with Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley with Lee promising to not only beat Argenis tonight, but to also hurt him!

In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Laredo Kid defeated Matt Bentley in 7:46 by pinfall with a Laredo 630. (D+)

In a bout that had terrible wrestling and non-existent crowd heat, Tessa Blanchard defeated Sara Lee in 8:22 by submission with a Figure Four Leglock. (D)

After the match Tessa refused to break the hold until some serious damage had been done, and then Tessa got on the microphone and challenged Tenille to suffer the same fate at Slammiversary, and that’s when Dashwood walked out from the back and with a simple nod the match was on!

In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Argenis and Extreme Tiger defeated Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley in 7:58 when Argenis defeated Trevor Lee by pinfall. (C-)

Moore and Callis announced the Main Event of the final Impact Wrestling before Slammiversary would be a big six man tag team match between Austin Aries, Jake Hager and James Storm and the Lucha Brotherhood!
Overall Grade: C-
....after the event the nerves were still going through my stomach, and not just because of nerves. The truth was I was still not sold on having Hulk Hogan in Impact Wrestling, not after what he had said. I had been a fan when I was younger, and recognized how important name recognition was...but I just don't know. It's because of the name recognition we wanted to get Hulk Hogan into our Hall of Fame, especially since plans are in motion to actually have a legit building for our Hall of Fame, and needed a big draw. But I just don't know....I just don't know....

All hands were on deck as were just a couple of days away from Slammiversary, and it's already been a bit of an eventful week. Rumours have been swirling that Pro Wrestling NOAH will be ending their working agreement with us because Vince has come calling. It's annoying, but I at least used my leverage of them voiding our agreement to get them to send over one wrestler for a special match at Slammiversary and after that, screw 'em, we have our own alliances that will help us going forward, especially the one with New Japan Pro Wrestling that is proceeding very tentatively, but having Don Callis around is a great help there. I also just finished having a meeting here at the Hanner Fieldhouse in Statesboro, with the man who will induct Hulk Hogan into the Hall of Fame Saturday evening. It's going to be a surprise that I'm sure will shock a lot of people, but I'm all about reconciliation. I have no plans to show up on TV tonight, but I am very excited for what is going to happen on Sunday when we introduce our newest superstar....what a night Slammiversary is going to be! The anticipation is kiling me!

Match 1: Extreme Tiger vs. Petey Williams

Thoughts on the Match: Petey made his return to the main roster after having been down in BCW training our future stars. While he’s been down there Petey has still made sure to get in on the action so there was no ring rust present as he went out there and had a pretty good match with Extreme Tiger to open the show off. Extreme Tiger had the Canadian Destroyer well scouted so Pete resorted to locking in a Sharpshooter to pick up the submission victory.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Petey Williams defeated Extreme Tiger in 12:45 by submission with a Sharpshooter.

Grade: C
Quote:
Rob Moore and Don Callis followed that match up by reminding the fans that at Slammiversary there would be a five way match between the five Captains of the World X Cup Teams (El Hijo del Fantasma for Team Mexico, Rich Swann for Team USA, “Bone Soldier” Taiji Ishimori for Team Japan, and Petey Williams for Team Canada) where the man who got the win would get his country two points to start the World X Cup off with, and the wrestler who was pinned would see his country eliminated. Callis and Rob Moore then played up that we would find out at Slammiversary who the Captain of the United Kingdom team would be, but that no one would be disappointed.

There was an advertisement for a new talk show format that would debut next week on Impact Wrestling…..Late Night IMPACT with….Classic Colt Cabana!

Match 2: Angelina Love vs. Allie

Thoughts on the Match: Angelina announced she was planning on ending her in ring career so we wanted to bring her in for one last go around before that moment, and who better for her to face than former Knockout’s Champion Allie? Angelina got a decent reaction, but Allie was fired up tonight with her title rematch looming in just a few days as she showed a new aggressive style that saw her run Angelina over and pick up the victory of one of Impact’s early Knockout greats.

Result: In a poor match, Allie defeated Angelina Love in 7:45 by pinfall with a Sitout Facebuster.

Grade: D
Quote:
After the match the lights flickered and the undead Bridesmaid’s brought a casket down to the ring….and when they opened it up there was a fake Allie in it and that caused Allie to drop out of the ring and attack the Bridesmaid’s before throwing the casket over and yelling for Su Yung but Yung never did appear.
Quote:
LAX was in the ring with Eddie Kingston and Eddie wanted to know what Ortiz and Santana had decided…and they were none too impressed. They said that sneak attacks were not their way and they didn’t want to associate with someone who acted like that. “King” tried to talk them down, but then his attitude changed and he said “maybe you two p*ssies never deserved me after all” and then all of a sudden they were attacked from behind by this man….


…and Eddie joined in and the two beat LAX down until security intervened.
Quote:
Eli Drake was shown talking about Scott Steiner, and he was not impressed that he would be in a match with Scott Steiner at Slammiversary but at least he would have a chance to show the whole world that he had been held down by carrying Steiner, and it was time for Drake to focus on regaining the World title that was rightfully his! As he finished up Rob Terry walked by and Drake looked at him, before wishing him luck and backing away.
Quote:
Match 3: Moose vs. Rob Terry

Thoughts on the Match: Big Rob Terry has the look, but as he showed tonight he just does not have it in the ring so do not expect to see him back anytime soon. Really though he was just out there so that Moose could get in some impressive show of strength moments by picking Rob up including the finish of the match with TheGameBreaker.

Result: In a bout that didn't have much heat and terrible wrestling, Moose defeated Rob Terry in 8:13 by pinfall with a TheGameBreaker.

Grade: D-
Quote:
After the match Moose got on the microphone and called out Cage who came out with Josh Matthews and Josh was on a microphone and mocked Moose but would not let Cage get into the ring with him saying they’d see Moose at Slammiversary.
Quote:
Match 4: Jushin Thunder Liger/Paul London vs. Matt Sydal/YANG

Thoughts on the Match: The fans exploded upon the entrance of Jushin Thunder Liger who took it all in before the match began with Matt Sydal attacking him. It was a fast paced and all action match that would see Jushin Thunder Liger take YANG out with the Rolling Koppo Kick before nailing Sydal with the Shotei! Liger made the tag to Paul London who went to the top turnbuckle and connected with a picture perfect Shooting Star Press to pick up the three count!

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Paul London and Jushin Thunder Liger defeated Matt Sydal and YANG in 12:31 when Paul London defeated Matt Sydal by pinfall with a Shooting Star Press.

Grade: C+

Match 5: “American Great” Jake Hager/Austin Aries/James Storm vs. The Lucha Brotherhood

Thoughts on the Match: Speaking of great reaction, when Rey Mysterio Jr stepped into the Impact Wrestling ring for the first time there was a loud ovation. The match itself was a great back and forth with all six men being given the chance to shine. The action broke down with all six men in the ring at the end, until Storm ended up outside of the ring and Rey Fénix flew over the top with a dive that took both men out. Mysterio went for a Huracánrana on Hager, but Jake managed to hold on and instead tried to drop Rey over the top rope with a Powerbomb, but Rey reversed and brought him over the ropes as well, both men went down to the mat’s but it was Hager who came out on top as he managed to lock an Anklelock in on Rey. In the ring now it was just Aries and Pentagon Jr who managed to put on a little preview of their Main Event match at Slammiversary with each man reversing the other’s trademark finisher’s until Aries managed to get a Last Chancery locked on in the middle of the ring. Pentagon tried to fight out but finally had no choice but to tap since no one from his team was going to be able to break up the hold. Our final show before Slammiversary ended with all three members of the Lucha Brotherhoood locked in submission hold’s after James Storm had managed to get Rey locked in an Indian Deathlock outside of the ring.

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Austin Aries, James Storm and Jake Hager defeated The Lucha Brotherhood (Rey Fénix, Rey Mysterio Jr. and Pentagon Jr.) in 16:52 when Austin Aries defeated Pentagon Jr. by submission with a Last Chancery.

Match 1: Clockwork Orange House of Hell I Quit Match: Eddie Edwards vs. Sami Callihan

The Match: The cell was just as barbaric as Raven said it would be with the familiar black cage walls leading being covered on the inside with weapons (including a steel chair, a table, garbage can, a kendo stick, a baseball bat of course and various other plunder) leading up to the top of the cage which was wrapped with barbwire to prevent either wrestler from escaping that way. Both men came out for this match dressed in their street clothes, knowing that this was not going to be a wrestling match, with Callihan wearing his riot gear top. This match started off with fists being thrown and from there it was off. Both men were not afraid to use the weapons on the wall and they were quickly brought into play. At one point they were fighting over a kendo stick and Callihan won that battle with a thumb to the eye and then he nailed Eddie with it a few times. Finally, Edwards managed to catch it, spun around and took Callihan down with a White Russian Legsweep. Before Sami could get up Eddie was on top of him firing away with punches, before getting Callihan’s vest off. Sami tried to get away but it was too late because Eddie was standing over top of him and started to smack away on Sami’s bareback with the kendo stick! With Callihan down on his knee’s, Eddie took the kendo stick that had started to break….and he snapped it in half over his knee. With a sick smile on his face Edwards went after Sami and took the broken half of the kendo stick and rammed it into Sami’s head!! Eddie dug it in until Callihan was bleeding profusely but he refused to say “I Quit.” When Sami would not quit Eddie dropped Sami and then grabbed a steel chair and nailed Callihan in the back of the head with a chair assisted Shining Wizard.

Sami was flat on his face and knocked out, so Eddie went to the next weapon which was pulling the table down and setting it up before grabbing a bag of thumb tack’s and spreading the tack’s all across the table top. Now that the table was ready Eddie pulled Sami to his feet and went to try and Suplex Callihan through the table but Sami blocked the hold, and instead pulled Eddie up and dropped him face first onto the table! The table didn’t break, so Eddie tried to get off of the table but Sami grabbed him by the back of the head and started to rub his head back and forth across the table leading to Edwards bleeding all over his body. Sami pulled Edwards to his feet and nailed him with a Stump Piledriver, before pulling Eddie up and placing him across the table. Slowly Sami climbed up the cage wall, turned and then came off with a Centon but Eddie moved out of the way and Callihan crashed through the table and the thumbtacks! Both men were covered in blood as Eddie made his way to his feet first and grabbed Sami by the hair, but Callihan grabbed a handful of thumb tacks and went for a brutal low blow! Edwards was down, and Sami grabbed a steel chair and nailed Edwards in the back with his, before opening the chair and placing it over his head! Next Sami grabbed the baseball bat and raised it above his head, looking down at Eddie and yelling for him to quit! Instead Eddie grabbed the chair and turned it sideways and drive it into the crotch of Sami to drop him. Grabbing the baseball bat Eddie stood up and took a swing at Sami’s head!!

Callihan barely managed to duck under that and he managed to get Edwards up on his shoulders like he was going to go for a Death Valley Driver, but Edwards slipped off of his shoulders and grabbed the bat and tried to choke Callihan out. Finally, Edwards pulled Sami down and was looking to choke the life out of Callihan while the referee was right there, begging for Sami to quit. Desperately Sami managed to flip out of the move and both men barely made it to their feet, and then Edwards pointed the bat right at Sami who was terrified! Looking behind him Sami made the decision to try and get out of the ring by climbing the cage and going over top. Eddie dropped the bat and raced up behind Sami and the two were fighting at the top with the barbwire right there. Already bleeding nothing was going to stop Eddie from ending this and he grabbed the barbwire and ripped it off of the roof creating an opening that Sami tried to sneak through. Instead Eddie grabbed him by the head and smashed it on the top of the cage wall. Edwards managed to get through the hole and was now on the wall outside of the ring with the barbwire still in his hands. Eddie grabbed the barbwire and wrapped it around Sami’s neck and was choking him out with the barbwire!! The camera zoomed in on the sick look on Eddie’s face as he held onto the barbwire with all of his might which was the only thing keeping both men falling from the walls. And then…..Sami said it! I QUIT!! Edwards let go of the barbwire and Sami slid down the wall and ended up back in the ring, and Eddie fell off of the cage and dropped to the ground, both men soaked in blood but the match was over.

Result: In a decent match, Eddie Edwards defeated Sami Callihan in an I Quit match in 17:34

After the match a bloody, broken down Eddie Edwards crawled out of the cage and stumbled towards the back falling on his hands and knee’s as he came through the curtain to the back with the camera following him the entire time. His wife Alisha was there and Eddie collapsed into her arms and fell to the ground crying “it’s over” as the camera finally cut away.

The Slammiversary cold open played to officially open the show (and kill time for the cage to be tore down) and featured the return of long time narrator Barry Scott over a wonderful video that paid a bit of attention to all of the big matches. As always this was very well done and Barry’s voice is always appreciated. After the cold open Rob Moore and Don Callis spent a few more moments hyping up the card while the finishing touches were completed on the steel cage for the opening match.

Match 2: Tenille Dashwood vs. Tessa Blanchard

The Match: After that match it was time to switch track to the Knockout’s with the battle of Tessa and Tenille. The story of this match was Tenille trying to avoid the Figure Four Leglock since she had seen the damage that it had caused her friend Taya. Since Tessa was so focused on getting the Leglock on it allowed Tenille to get a couple of quick pin fall attempts for two. Dashwood’s spirit resulted in her connecting with a Tayla Made Dropkick that sent Tessa flying into the corner of the ring Tenille went off with a volley of body blows that dropped Tessa to a seated position. Tenille went to the other side of the ring and then came running across to the connect with the Taste of Tenille in the corner! Dashwood pulled Tessa out from the corner and went for a pin fall but only got a two count out of it. Tenille then went to set up a Muta Lock but then someone came running down from the back and climbed up on the ring apron. Don Callis and Rob Moore made sure to point out to the fans that it was Rachel Ellering and Tenille was confused about what was going on, but only until Tessa managed to clip Tenille’s leg and dropped her to the back which set Dashwood up for the Figure Four Leglock. Tenille tried to struggle but eventually was forced to submit to give Tessa the victory.

Result: In a poor match, Tessa Blanchard defeated Tenille Dashwood in 7:46 by submission with a Figure Four Leglock after a distraction from Rachael Ellering.

Match 3: James Storm vs. Rey Fénix

The Match: James Storm attacked Rey before the introductions could be completed, tossing him through the ropes to the outside. Following him outside James Storm grabbed Rey and tossed him into the ring steps before following up with a Suplex outside before sliding back into the ring and waiting for the ten count. Fénix slid back into the ring and Storm punched Rey in the back of the head, before pulling him up and sending him off of the ropes with an Irish Whip but Fénix climbed the ropes and did a Backflip, spun around and caught Storm with a Spinkick. Rey kept the speed game up, and eventually Storm ended up outside of the ring which set up a dive from Fénix but Storm moved out of the way and Rey crashed to the mat. James picked him up and sent him into the ring apron, before picking him up…and tossing him into the crowd! The “Cowboy” rolled back into the ring to break up the count and then went into the crowd after Fénix and the two men brawled through the crowd for a bit before ending up back in the ring. James rolled Fénix back into the ring and then climbed up on the ring apron just to get dropped off with a combination of moves from Rey. With Storm outside of the ring Fénix came over the top with a Springboard Tornillo and both men went down! Both men slid back into the ring right at nine just as the referee was going to count them out. Fénix tried to pick the pace up again but Storm stopped that with a Backcracker which sent up for a Sharpshooter. Rey managed to get himself to the ropes to force the hold being broken but Storm did not want to let go. Finally James broke it up, but then went to the corner and waited for Fénix to stand up so he could hit him with the Spear. Rey managed to Leapfrog over that and Storm almost ran the referee over, but he stopped himself just short. That provided an opening for Fénix to connect with a Reverse Huracánrana and then he went outside of the ring looking to hit a move off of the ring apron……but Storm connected with the SUPERKICK! ONE….TWO….REY FENIX KICKED OUT! James could not believe it and he grabbed the referee by the shirt and was yelling that it had to be two! While this was going on Fénix rolled out of the ring to the outside, and when Storm turned around Rey hit a Step Up Cutter back into the ring but only got a two count out of it! Quickly Fénix went to the top rope and connected with a Meteora for the three count upset!

Result: In a decent match, Rey Fénix defeated James Storm in 13:06 by pinfall with a Meteora.

Match 4: Eddie Kingston/Willie Prince vs. LAX

The Match: This was a wild brawl from the very beginning with Konnan leading his charges out to defeat the new team of Eddie Kingston and Willie Prince. Prince, known as Willie Mack in Lucha Underground, was given the opportunity to showcase his ability hitting some of his trademark stuff on Ortiz and Santana. But the story of the match was with Konnan and his interactions with “King” Eddie Kingston. The two kept shouting at each other, and finally Konnan almost looked ready to get into the ring as he climbed up on the ring apron. Santana tried to talk Konnan down but Willie Prince took advantage of the distraction to come around the corner and attack Santana from behind. Meanwhile Ortiz was trying to get to his feet in the ring….when Diamante slid into the ring….AND NAILED HIM FROM BEHIND WITH A LOW BLOW! Kingston turned around and saw that Ortiz was down on his knee’s and he connected with the Sliding D to get the pin fall victory.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Eddie Kingston and Willie Prince defeated Latin American Xchange in 8:04 when Eddie Kingston defeated Ortiz by pinfall with a Sliding D. During the match we also had Diamante turn on Ortiz.

Match 5: Paul London vs. YANG

The Match: These two had quiet the series of matches back when WWE Velocity was a thing, but they’re both a bit older, maybe a bit slower, and a whole lot wiser for it. Of course both men were also undefeated so both men had a lot to fight for. There was a lot of pin fall attempts with this match but the finish of the match would see the two fighting on the top rope and YANG knocked London from the top and went for his Corkscrew Splash just to have London move out of the way leading to YANG crashing into the match. Paul pulled YANG to his feet and caught him with a Legsweep DDT but only got a two count of that. The end result was that YANG was in the perfect spot for London as he climbed to the top turnbuckle and connected with the Shooting Star Press to get the three count and remain undefeated!

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Paul London defeated YANG in 8:22 by pinfall with a Shooting Star Press.

Match 6: “American Great” Jake Hager vs. Rey Mysterio Jr

The Match: Somewhat surprisingly Rob Moore and Don Callis actually mentioned the fact that Mysterio had defeated Hager to end his lone World Championship reign (without mentioning the fact that it was in a fatal four-way match) and so there was actually some history to this one. While there was some familiarity between these two, both men had also adjusted their style since their time in WWE so that led to a bit of a different clash between them. The story of the match was clear from the beginning as Rey was selling his injured ankle, from the attack at the previous Impact Wrestling, and Hager kept going after it to further damage the move. Finally “American Great” Hager looked to end the match with the Anklelock and Rey Mysterio Jr had to get himself to the ropes to force the break. Hager pulled him off of the ropes and Rey managed to reverse into a Headscissors that dropped Jake across the rope. Rey ran the ropes like he was going to go for the 619 but Jake popped up and caught him with a Clothesline instead. Looking for victory Jake transitioned into a Gutwrench Sitout Powerbomb and went for the pin fall but only got two out of it. Hoisting Rey up onto the top turnbuckle set Jake up for Rey to counter with a Tornado DDT, before going outside and coming off of the ropes with a Splash that only got a two count. Rey went to the top turnbuckle and came off and landed on Hager’s shoulders, but Jake blocked and transitioned into another Ankelock! Only the support of the fans was enough to get Rey to pull himself towards and the ropes, but Hager would let go of the Anklelock even with Rey clinging to the ropes. Mysterio Jr climbed the ropes grabbing onto the second one while Hager continued to hang on to the submission hold. Rey spun around and as Jake yanked on the ankle one more time Rey leg go of the ropes and managed to do a version of a Huracánrana that dropped Hager into the perfect position for the 619! Running off the ropes Rey looked to end the match….but Hager caught him as he spun around the ropes and dragged him to the middle of the ring with the Ankelock locked on…..AND REY TAPPED!

Result: In a bout that had great wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Jake Hager defeated Rey Mysterio Jr. in 18:21 by submission with an Anklelock.

The Match: There was nothing but action in this match with Will Ospreay starting the match off against Petey Williams and showing off some good wrestling action before El Hijo del Fantasma tagged in and Ospreay had to leave the ring to boo’s from the fans. Everyone had their chance in the ring before there was complete chaos to end the match with all five men in the ring until Ishimori got tossed out of the ring, setting him up for a Tope Suicida but Ishimori moved out of the way and Fatasma landed on the guard rail taking him out. Meanwhile inside the ring the action shifted to Pete Williams, Swann and Ospreay all trading moves until Swann connected with a Tornado Spin Kick on Ospreay but that made Swann vulnerable and Petey connected with the Canadian Destroyer! Swann managed to roll out of the ring landing beside El Hijo del Fantasma and “Bone Soldier” while Petey and Will were still in the ring. Williams looked to end things for the proud nation of Canada but Ospreay managed to slip out of the Canadian Destroyer and after some back and forth with Williams connected with the Storm Breaker! Ishimori rolled back in the ring and pulled Ospreay up from the pin fall attempt and tossed him through the ropes where he landed right on Fantasma and Swann! That left Petey all by himself and “Bone Soldier” pulled him to his feet to connect with a Hammerlock DDT which led to the victory for Team Japan and the elimination of Team Canada from the World X Cup!

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Taiji Ishimori defeated Petey Williams, El Hijo del Fantasma, Rich Swann and Will Ospreay in 15:01 when Taiji Ishimori defeated Petey Williams by pinfall with a Hammerlock DDT.

Match 8: Eli Drake vs. Scott Steiner

The Match: This match started off….how else, with a pose down between the two men, before it turned into yelling, and then finally a collar and elbow tie up that ended with Scott forcing Eli Drake back into the corner. After some more arguing they locked up again and this time Drake won and mocked Steiner. After a crisscross Scott Steiner went for a Steinerline but Drake ducked that bounced off of the ropes and Scott caught him with an Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex. After some more fighting Eli Drake took Scott down with a Bodyslam before hitting his Eli Drake Leaping Elbow Drop but Scott kicked out at two. They came up and Scott finally connected with a Steinerline before hitting his version of an Elbow Drop with a kick to his bicep. Now it was Drake who kicked out and the two men fought outside where they took turns trying to throw each other into the guard rail, before finally Scott was the one who sent Drake into the guard rail and then caught him in the back of the head with a Steinerline. Eli grabbed a steel chair and went to go and swing but Scott Steiner ducked and then sent Eli Drake into the ring. In the ring Scott sent Eli Drake into the corner and then tried to run in after him but Drake got his foot up to the face to stop Scott. Eli Drake jumped up on the top turnbuckle and came off with a Double Axe Handle, but Scott caught him and went for a Suplex, and then another one. Steiner figured it was over but Eli Drake caught him with a back Elbow and then went jumped off of the top ring rope looking for a Moonsault but Steiner moved out of the way and Drake crashed to the mat. Steiner tried to end the match with the Steiner Recliner but Drake fought out of that and stood up with Scott on his shoulders, dropped him down across the top rope and then spun him around and connected with the Gravy Train for the pin fall!

Result: In a bout that had a decent reaction from the crowd but sub-par wrestling, Eli Drake defeated Scott Steiner in 7:47 by pinfall with a Gravy Train.

The Match: The Undead Bridesmaid’s brought the casket to the ring and Allie attacked them aiming to get rid of them when the casket popped open and Su Yung popped out and went after Allie from behind. It was a physical match from there with both women trying to throw the other into the casket but not being able to get the lid closed. Finally they ended up back in the ring and Allie was able to take over with BSE (Best Superkick Ever) and then climbed up on the ropes and tried to make Su Yung unconscious with an Allie Choke. After Su Yung went down Allie again tried to get her into the casket but this time she was stopped by the Bridesmaid’s. This time Allie had enough and she grabbed a steel chair and went after them taking them out for good. She went back after Su Yung but Yung had recovered and caught Allie with The Purge and went to force Allie into the casket but Allie pulled Su Yung into the casket with her.

Match 10: #1 Contendership to the Undisputed World Championship: Cage vs. Moose

The Match: Moose tried to take control early with a Side Headlock, and then the two men took turns bouncing off of the ropes and trying to knock the other down, before settling into a series of drop down and roll throughs avoiding each other. Finally, Moose called for a test of strength, but Cage would not go for it at first. They went back and forth before they finally locked up, before Cage broke it up to lock on a Side Headlock of his own. Moose broke out of that and took Cage down with a Shoulder Tackle before firing the fans up with some Moose chants. The men exchanged some attempts at the same move, including the both going for a Discus Lariat, before Moose took Cage down with a Standing Dropkick! Outside of the ring Moose followed after and ended up getting launched into the ring post with a Running Bucklebomb. Cage turned his attention to working over the back of Moose with a Suplex and then a Bear Hug, but when he made the mistake of going to the top turnbuckle Moose bounced up and brought him down from the top with a variation of Go to Hell! Now it was Moose who went outside and paid for it as Cage intercepted him and then brought him back into the ring with a Suplex where Cage was standing on the second rope! From there it was a series of attempted finishing moves that ended when Cage went for a Bucklebomb inside the ring and Moose bounced off and caught Cage with a Spear. Slowly both men came to their feet and Moose tried to end it was TheGameBreaker but Cage reversed it into a Pumphandle Facebuster and picked up the victory and a World title shot!

Match 12: “The Survivor” Johnny Impact vs. Naomichi Marufuji

The Match: Prior to the match, Johnny's entrance was changed a little bit as he was introduced as "The Survivor" as he came out to tie into his appearance on the upcoming season of Survivor. Like you would expect from two wrestlers who could have been X-Division stars, this match began with a lot of speed. While Marufuji is probably more commonly known as a good guy, he let his cockiness show in this match as he almost took Impact’s head off with a kick off of the ropes and then stopped to actually show Johnny just how close it was. After some back and forth exciting action Marufuji caught Impact with a Double Stomp to the front of the head and then went for a Chinlock trying to twist Impact’s head right off. Naomichi focused on the head some more using his feet on the forehead before locking in another Chinlock. Johnny Impact fought back until Marufuji took him down on the rope with a Drop Toe Hold and then climbed out on the ring apron and started to kick Impact in the head before pulling Impact up….and dropping him on the ring apron with a Piledriver! Marfuji let Impact drop to the ground while he rolled back into the ring almost getting the count out victory. When Impact slid into the ring Marufuji went outside of the ring and then hit a Springboard Single Dropkick to the head of Impact! Naomichi got a two count out of that before pulling Johnny Impact to his feet and going for a series of kicks that dropped Impact to the mat once more. Marufuji went to the top turnbuckle but Impact intercepted and dropped him down across the top turnbuckle before flowing up with a Flying Springboard Roundhouse kick that caused Naomichi fall off of the top turnbuckle and drop down to the outside. Impact dropped over the top rope to the outside and caught Marufuji with a Europead Uppertcut before rolling him back into the ring and sliding in and connecting with a Standing Shooting Star Press for only a two count. But Marufuji was not kicking out of a Starship Pain to give Johnny the victory!

Result: In a bout that had great wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, "The Survivor" Johnny Impact defeated Naomichi Marufuji in 13:27 by pinfall with a Starship Pain.

But this has been a new year with new ideas, new visions and I’m proud of where things are going. I know I’ve only been around for two months but I think it’s obvious how much things have changed this year already. One of the ways I can tell that things have changed is shortly after I became President I received a phone call from a friend of mine asking me if I thought there would be any room for him on the Impact Wrestling roster. That man is here tonight and I’m not going to make you wait, with great pleasure I introduce you to……..


…..THEODORE NEMETH! The name was unfamiliar at first, but when Nemeth walked out from the back the fans reacted loudly to the appearance of the former Dolph Ziggler. Soaking it all in Nemeth made his way down to the ring and got into the microphone where he took the microphone from Stephen Amell’s hand: “Theodore Nemeth……although you can call me Teddy. Thank you for welcoming me here to Impact Wrestling where I am excited about not getting held back anymore. All you fans have never see me at best, but from here on out you are going to get to see the modern day Rock ‘n’ Wrestler, the funniest man in wrestling, the most exciting superstar….” Before Teddy Nemeth could go on any further he was interrupted by the music of “Cowboy” James Storm who made his down to the ring. When Storm got into the ring Nemeth tried to shake his hand to introduce him, but Storm just glared at his hand and took the microphone away. “Seriously? First it was the masked Mexican’s, and now you bring this goof in? And you couldn’t afford me? I was one o the originals in this company…” Again, Nemeth tried to interject and this time Storm gave him a shove back. “You are the face of this company and you’re going to learn that you need to respect…” Once again Nemeth interrupted, but this time it was with a Superkick!! Nemeth took off his sports jacket and threw it at Storm before celebrating with the fans.

And then something miraculous started to happen as Liger started to climb to his feet shaking his fists and then stood up and did the full finger wag at Matt Sydal in a clear tribute to the man inducted into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame. Sydal tried to punch Liger but Liger caught his arm and started to punch away at Sydal forcing him back into the ropes and then sent him off of the ropes with an Irish Whip. Instead of catching Sydal with a Big Boot though he instead connected with the Shotei! ONE….TWO…SYDAL KIKCED OUT! Liger pulled Matt Sydal up and sent him into the corner with an Irish Whip and Sydal dropped down which set up the Rolling Koppo Kick! The Champion fell out of the corner and Jushin Liger picked Sydal up and dropped him in the middle of the ring with a Fisherman’s Buster for one….two…Sydal kicked out. Liger pulled Sydal to his feet, or at least tried to, and was rolled up into a pin fall but kicked out at two.

Match 14: Unification Match: Impact Wrestling World Championship vs. Impact Grand Championship: Pentagon Jr© vs. Austin Aries ©

The Match: With both men in opposite corners after the introduction, Aries began the match off in typical cocky fashion by hopping up on the turnbuckle in the corner. That had to infuriate Pentagon Jr but he didn’t let it show as he instead walked towards Aries and made the Cero Miedo gesture which caused Aries to drop off of the turnbuckle and walk towards Pentagon Jr and started to lip him off. The Impact Wrestling World Champion respond with a slap to the face of the Grand Champion and the fight was on. The two men nailed each other with Chop’s, before Aries caught Pentagon Jr with a Dropkick and sent Pentagon Jr out of the ring. Aries ran off of the ropes and came through with a Tope Suicida and went crazy on Pentagon Jr outside of the ring with forearms. Austin backed off after giving Pentagon Jr a forearm with the head against the ring pole. That gave Pentagon Jr the opportunity to connect with a Superkick and Aries had to walk away. Pentagon stalked him around the ring and connected with a kick that backed Aries up against the ring pole where Pentagon Jr caught him with a chop before rolling into the ring, rolling back out and connecting with another kick! Once again Aries tried to walk away and Pentagon Jr followed him around the corner and got him pushed up against another ring pole, before calling for silence before he went for a Chop…but Aries moved and Pentagon Jr connected with the ring pole instead! Taking advantage of that Aries grabbed Pentagon Jr by the hand and sent him to the ground, stomped on the hand and then rolled Pentagon Jr into the ring before hitting a Slingshot Centon and went for a pin fall. Pentagon Jr kicked out, and then Aries followed him around the ring and kept trying to get pin falls but Pentagon Jr would just roll away. Finally Austin Aries switched tactics and went to end the match with a submission with the Last Chancery but Pentagon Jr managed to make it to the ropes and grab the bottom rope to break the hold.

Still on the attack Aries pulled Pentagon Jr to his feet and took him over to the corner where he could get a Chop of his own, before grabbing some fabric that was attached to the mask of Pentagon Jr and he tied that up around the top rope to pin Pentagon Jr in place. Backing up to the opposite corner Aries came running across the ring just to eat a foot from Pentagon Jr in the corner which sent Aries flying. Pentagon Jr ripped his mask free and caught Aries with a Superkick and then went for his Armbar, but Aries quickly broke free and rolled out of the ring. As Aries tried to get back into the ring Pentagon Jr caught him with a Baseball slide and then went running off of the ropes but as he went through the rope Aries caught him with another Forearm stopping his momentum. Pentagon Jr wandered around as Aries went to the top turnbuckle and came off with a Missile Dropkick that put the World Champion down again. Austin stepped up on the ropes and dropped down with a Kneedrop to the back of Pentagon’s head and then pulled him up so that he could Chop him in the corner. But the Chop only seemed to wake Pentagon Jr as he spun Aries around and kicked him in the gut before taking him down and locked a Chinlock on but Aries climbed to his feet even with Pentagon Jr still keeping the hold locked on. Eventually Aries managed to get out of it and then spun Pentagon Jr around and dropped him with a Neckbreaker. Aries put Pentagon Jr in position and caught him with a Elbow to the back of the head after jumping off of the ropes but only got a two count of that. When Pentagon Jr got back to his feet he kicked Aries again and Austin rolled out of the ring to take a breather. Pentagon Jr followed him out of the ring and dragged him back in where he unleashed with a series of Chops in the corner and finally Aries actually fell out of the corner and rolled out of the ring. Pentagon Jr picked him up and brought him into the ring with a Suplex and then pulled Aries up and set up for the Fear Factor but Aries blocked and sent Pentagon Jr over with a Back Body Drop instead.

Pentagon Jr helped Aries to his feet and Aries fired off some Forearm’s, and then ripped his elbow pad off and ran off the ropes and went for a Discus Elbow but Pentagon Jr stopped his momentum and went for another Fear Factor but Aries blocked it in mid air dropped down and then picked Pentagon Jr up and hit a combo of a Knee Breaker and a Suplex. As Pentagon Jr stumbled to his feet Aries ran off of the corner and caught Pentagon Jr with a Dropkick in the corner and put both men down. With Pentagon Jr down Aries scaled to the top turnbuckle but Pentagon Jr stopped him with an Enziguri and then set up for a Fear Factor from the top!! Aries fought desperately against that and the two men were fighting on the top until Aries boxed the ears of Pentagon Jr and almost caused him to fall from the top, something that Aries made sure happened with a Sunset Powerbomb and then rolled through into a Last Chancery! Once more Pentagon Jr managed to get to the ropes and then the two men took turns running into each other with a Clotheslines in the corner, but Pentagon Jr jumped up on the last one and landed behind Austin Aries taking him down with a Lungblower for two! Pentagon Jr pulled Aries up and looked to go for a Pentagon Driver but Aries took Pentagon Jr down instead and then went for a Discus Elbow, and then tried to go for the Brainbuster but Pentagon Jr slipped out of that and went for the Pentagon Driver once more. ONE….TWO….ARIES GOT HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!

After that move Aries rolled closer to the bottom rope and wrapped his arm around the rope desperate to prevent any further damage. Pentagon Jr followed him out on the ring apron and pulled Aries up and threated to hit the Fear Factor off of the ring apron and to the ground! After struggling over that move, Aries blocked and pulled Pentagon Jr up on his shoulders, and then Pentagon Jr struggled out of that and then picked Aries up on his shoulders and Aries slid off of the shoulders and back into the ring. Aries then dropped Pentagon Jr’s neck down across the top rope with a Neckbreaker and Pentagon Jr fell off of the ring apron and dropped to the ground. Aries came over the top rope and tried to go for a Headscissors takedown but Pentagon Jr blocked that and almost Powerbombed Aries instead, but finally Aries did manage to take him down and then locked in the Last Chancery outside of the ring. Aries finally let go of the hold and rolled back into the ring to break up the hold before rolling back out of the ring and grabbing a steel chair. Of course, that wasn’t legal but this was a Unification match and Aries had to know the referee wasn’t going to disqualify him as he smacked Pentagon Jr on the back with the steel chair. He got another shot in before Pentagon Jr rolled back into the ring, which set him up perfectly for a 450 splash from the top from Austin Aries. Aries went for the pin fall but only got a two count out of it. Both men were tired as Aries picked Pentagon Jr up and went for the Brainbuster but almost lost his balance and dropped Pentagon Jr, but then stabilized and dropped straight down with the move and went for the three count….but Pentagon Jr got his foot on the ropes.

Now it was Pentagon Jr who rolled out of the ring looking to rest after the match, but Aries was not about to let that last and he went for a Discus Forearm on the ring apron that almost sent Pentagon Jr flying off of the ring apron and down on the guard rail. With just one hand Pentagon Jr held onto the top rope to keep from flying off. Austin Aries ran off of the ropes and tried to come back with a Dropkick, but Pentagon Jr blocked that and Aries dropped down to the mat. When Aries stood up Pentagon Jr locked up with him and tried to Suplex him out of the ring and to the floor, but Aries blocked it with a knee to the head and dropped down beside Pentagon Jr on the ring apron and the two exchanged Chops before Pentagon Jr kicked Aries in the gut and picked him up and NAILED THE FEAR FACTOR ON THE RING APRON! Aries bounced off and landed on the mat below with Pentagon Jr still laying on the ring apron. Very slowly Pentagon Jr recovered and pulled Aries up and rolled him into the ring before following in behind him and going for the pin fall but only got two at that point after how long it had taken. Pentagon Jr pulled Aries up and set him up for another Fear Factor, but Aries blocked and sent Pentagon Jr flying backwards towards Earl Hebner knocking the senior referee down to his knees. Aries then kicked Pentagon Jr between the legs and picked him up for the Brain Buster for ONE…..TWO…TH…..PENTAGON JR KICKED OUT! Both men were breathing heavily as Aries placed Pentagon Jr up on the top turnbuckle and then followed him and was going for a Brain Buster from the top turnbuckle, but Pentagon Jr blocked it. Chops were exchanged and then Pentagon Jr doubled Aries over and….HIT THE FEAR FACTOR FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE…..ONE…..TWO…..THREE!! PENTAGON JR HAD WON AND WAS NOW THE UNSDISPUTED IMPACT WRESTLING WORLD CHAMPION!

Result: In a bout that had superb wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Pentagon Jr. defeated Austin Aries in 17:40 by pinfall with a Top Rope Styles Clash. Pentagon Jr. makes defence number 3 of his Impact World title. Pentagon Jr. wins the Impact Grand title.

In Summary:

June 24th.....errrr....June 25th, 2018

I'm just leaving the post PPV party.....which was not only for celebrating our show, but also to celebrate the final match that Earl Hebner will ever referee after the Main Event. So much happened tonight and fans of Impact Wrestling will have a bit of time to let it all sink in as we are taking the week off as we reset as we will return to live TV from Nova Scotia in July. I wanted to give the wrestlers some time off as next week will feature both Canada Day and Independence Day, but also it gives us time to get the filming equipment in place. There's been a lot I've had to deal with lately with lawsuit threats as well as Pro Wrestling NOAH ending their relationship with us to work with WWE going forward. Our lawyers made sure that they didn't pull Marufuji out of the advertised match, but it was close there for a few moments. But it was a big event with so much having happened, I really think the journey Impact Wrestling began back in January took another big step forward today.....

Slammiversary XVI PPV thoughts:

-We began the match with the I Quit Hardcore Cage Match because we wanted to have the cage all set up to not waste any broadcast time with setting the cage up. I knew it was going to be a violent match and these two men went out there and gave their all setting the stage for the rest of the show. This has been a great feud that began with a rough set of circumstances, but now it's time to move on.

-I loved the cold open video with Barry Scott, he always adds a sense of gravitas to these videos and what better time to make use of his talents then for our anniversary.

-We continue to build up our Knockout's division with the queen Tessa and Tenille....there's still work to be done to get the fans to accept them, but overall I was happy with their effort and I'm glad to have Rachael Ellering officially on the roster.

-Rey Fenix and James Storm were up next and did exactly what we needed of them, but this was just a teaser for what was going to come on later.

-Willie Prince really impressed me in the tag match; he is a bit of a contrast between his appearance and the way he works and I think he is going to be a good addition to Impact Wrestling. The twist with Diamante was to help even out the sides, although do not expect her to get mic time now.

-I had seen the matches on Velocity between Paul London and YANG and knew there was some chemistry there, and while they are both older they still managed to put on a good match that hearkened back to those ones.

-I actually thought people would be more surprised then they were to see Jake Hager win against Rey Mysterio the fact that they weren't hopefully means that they see Hager has risen to Rey's level, and not the fans thinking that Rey is not the star that we think he is.

-Will Ospreay is in Impact Wrestling!! It's going to take some time for the fans to know who he is, but I could not be more excited to have him here. Fans on the internet were expecting him after he lost the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship at Dominion and so they were not disappointed at all to see him either. This was win, win for everyone.

-I was not expecting much from Eli Drake and Scott Steiner, but the entire point was to get Drake over and finish up the story between Drake and Steiner so that Drake can move on.

-Okay...so the Hall of Fame segment. For those who hadn't attended the actual induction ceremony I'm sure there was a great deal of surprise seeing Jeff Jarrett here. The truth is that there had been some whispers of Jarrett suing the company over the intellectual property from GFW, heck the name Global Wrestling Network is connected to that, and that was not something any of us wanted to deal with, so I was asked to make friends with him and bring him back "home." This was the first step, but he will also be helping out backstage in a Road Agent role, and I'm hoping that he will be an asset and not hurt what we have developing.

-The casket match between Su Yung and Allie was maybe not as violent as people expected but hopefully the story told made sense as Allie continues to descend into her dark side but doesn't get anywhere doing that.

-To borrow a phrase from good ol' JR, we got to see a battle of two true "hosses" with Cage and Moose, and I'm constantly amazed by the athleticism of both men and look forward to seeing what the future brings for both men.

-There wasn't much of a story going in to the Tag Team title match but I was still really happy with the match the four men put on, and now they will be going in different directions with Z & E as the Champions and Aero Star and Drago will be a part of the World X Cup.

-I spoke with Marufuji before this match and we got some revenge on Noah as he agreed to sign a contract with us that would see him show up every now and then. I won't look to give him a serious push since he can't commit to more then that, but just having him around and wrestling with some of our talent should see them improve their in ring talents after being in the ring with such a great competitor. Of course I was also very excited to have Johnny Impact back and he just about stole the show right from under us.

-I hope the fact that I was incredibly nervous didn't show when I came out to introduce Theodore, whoops I forgot I'm supposed to call him Teddy, but I was very excited about it. This was a superstar who chose us over anyone else, and I don't think anyone expected to see that ever happen again.

-The X-Division title match was really just a chance to get Jushin Liger on the card as there will not be many more opportunities to do so as he has announced his retirement is upcoming.

-I know many people may be shocked that we went with Pentagon Jr as our Champion but Aries has been the Champion before and I wanted to see us going in a different direction, plus I think the sky is the limit for Pentagon Jr who is one of the very best in the world right now.

***********************

The month of June 2018 in wrestling....

Thankfully there are no death's to announce this month, with the big news of the month being the retirement of long time official Earl Hebner.

As for the top five companies......well they're still the same....

1. WWE
2. NJPW
3. Impact Wrestling
4. CMLL
5. Lucha Libre AAA worldwide

Slammiversary is behind us and now it's summer time and the World X Cup is about to begin.....

OOC: The last two dynasties I have ran, both times I was about debut a big new wrestler stolen from another company....something has happened that has led to the end of the dynasty, so to say I was worried as I got closer and closer to releasing Slammiversary is an understatement...but it's over, I've made it through...now I can take a deep breath and continue on!

Canada Day was past, Independence Day was past....and I was back home in Canada at the Acadia Athletic Complex in Wolfville, Nova Scotia and I could not be more excited about being back in my home country after a successful Slammiversary. But it's all about taking that next step and continuing to push forward.....
Quote:
Match 1: Extreme Tiger vs. Naomichi Marufuji

Thoughts on the Match: I wanted to get Marufuji back out as quickly as possible after his match with Johnny Impact even though the fans in Canada did not know him as well as the ones in Florida. With that said these two men still managed to put on a good show with Marufuji getting the submission victory and poor Tiger lost another match.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but non-existent crowd heat, Naomichi Marufuji defeated Extreme Tiger in 7:55 by submission with a Triangle Cobra Clutch.

Grade: C
Quote:
Rob Moore and Don Callis talked about Slammiversary for a little bit but then also announced the Main Event was an X-Division title match between Matt Sydal and Petey Williams. After that there was a video that went through in still shots some of the violent action in the I quit match between Eddie Edwards and Sami Callihan.
Quote:
Match 2: Mike Bailey vs. Paul London

Thoughts on the Match: I wanted this match to showcase one of our development talents, one who we still haven’t been able to get clearance to bring him into the States, but I’m clearly missing something because the fans were NOT happy to see him at all. The boo’s rained down on him from the moment he came out and that ruined the beginning of this match but fortunately Paul was able to bring things back together to give a good closing stretch.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Paul London defeated Mike Bailey in 7:56 by pinfall with a Shooting Star Press.

Grade: C
Quote:
After the match we had Paul London walk over to Rob and Don and yell “do I deserve my title shot now, come on out Matty and let’s plaaaaaay!”
Quote:
Alicia Atout interviewed Chandler Park, Joseph Park and Winter and announced that next week it would be Chandler Park facing off against Kongo Kong and Chandler said he knew that Kong had injured Grado, and while he didn’t always see eye to eye with Grado he didn’t deserve to get taken out like that and he would be sure to make sure Kongo paid for it. Just then “The Survivor” Johnny Impact walked by and asked Chandler to promise that he would leave some of Kong for the “Mayor of Slamtown.”
Quote:
Match 3: Jimmy Rave vs. “The Survivor” Johnny Impact

Thoughts on the Match: While I was excited for the exposure that Impact was going to get with Survivor, and personally happy for him and his wedding, I have been eagerly waiting for him to return because I figured there was so much he can do for us. I was also very happy with how Jimmy Rave showed in this match, he is proving me right for signing him, and the fans ate this one up for a great ten minute match.

Result: In a decent match, "The Survivor" Johnny Impact defeated Jimmy Rave in 8:14 by pinfall with a Starship Pain.

Grade: B-
Quote:
Jimmy Jacobs was interviewed with Kongo Kong in the background and told Johnny that he should be careful what he asks for because Kongo already took him out once and he “wasn’t even the monster you should be afraid of!”
Quote:
Match 4: Argenis vs. Trevor Lee

Thoughts on the Match: A brief video was aired to catch the fans up on the history on X-Plosion between these two men before letting them go out there and have a good match to end their story. After Argenis won the match Rob Moore and Don Callis made sure to play up the fact that he was still undefeated in Impact Wrestling.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Argenis defeated Trevor Lee in 8:05 by pinfall.

Grade: C
Quote:
A brief video recap played showing the debut of Theodore Nemeth at Slammiversary and promised that he would be appearing live next week!

Impact Wrestling Knockout's Championship

Quote:
Match 5: Impact Wrestling Knockout’s Championship: Su Yung© vs. Keira Hogan

Thoughts on the Match: This was designed to show how dominant Su Yung could be as she absolutely dominated from the moment the bell rang and her Undead Bridesmaid’s didn’t even need to interfere.

Result: In a terrible match, Su Yung defeated Kiera Hogan in 3:19 by pinfall with a Yellow Fever. Su Yung makes defence number 2 of her Impact Knockouts title.

Grade: D+
Quote:
As Su Yung stood in the middle of the ring holding the Knockout’s Championship some new music began to play and out to the stage walked….


….AMY DUMAS!
Quote:
A video played that introduced the complete teams for the World X Cup:

Team UK: Captain Will Ospreay, Doug Williams and UK X-Division newcomers Robbie Solare and Kid Lykos

Team USA: Captain Rich Swann, Dezmond Xavier, Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley

Team Japan: Captain Taiji Ishimori, and the Dragon Gate trio Black Hulk, CIMA and Naruki Doi

Team Mexico: Captain El Hijo del Fantasma, Aero Star, Drago and…..Caristico!

Moore and Callis then explained that since Taiji Ishimori had won the Captain’s match he got to pick the team that Japan would face in the first round of the World X Cup and he had picked Team UK leaving Team USA and Team Mexico would face off. Next week would be the opening match of the first round which would be a one on one match with the points working this way: a victory getting two points, a tie getting one point for each opponent, a loss getting zero points. The second match in the first round would be a tag team match, and then the final match in the first round would the Captain’s facing off each other with the tie breaker being the Captain’s match if a tie breaker was needed. One final note that Team Japan will open World X Cup with two points earned in that Captain’s Match.
Quote:
An interview segment played with “King” Eddie Kingston, Willie Prince and Diamante. They took turns laughing about everything they had done to LAX with Eddie finishing with saying they were Street Royalty and every royal family needed a Queen.
Quote:
Up next was our debut for our new talk show format….Late Night IMPACT with Classic Colt Cabana. It was pre-taped with a set in the back and it began with Colt introducing himself to the fans and then doing a humourous monologue getting a few laughs before introducing his guests for the ‘show’ Rey Mysterio Jr and Rey Fenix and then spoke to them about their tag team match against Jake Hager and James Storm that would be next weeks Main Event but then Colt really dug in and spoke about Rey tapping out to Jake Hager at Slammiversary and Rey said that everyone knew his body wasn’t quite the same as it used to be and Hager took advantage of that, but that he wouldn’t let his fans down again next week.

Impact Wrestling X-Division Championship

Quote:
Match 6: Impact Wrestling X-Division Championship: Matt Sydal © vs. Petey Williams

Thoughts on the Match: Since poor Petey won’t be sticking around for the World X Cup I figured the least we could do was give him a title shot at the X-Division championship and these two managed to turn in a pretty good match that was more mat based then high flying in a bit of a change of pace but ended with Sydal coming off of the top rope with the Shooting Star Press.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Matt Sydal defeated Petey Williams in 18:05 by pinfall with a Shooting Star Press. Matt Sydal makes defence number 5 of his Impact X-Division title.

Grade: C+
Quote:
The final segment saw a trophy in the ring with a NEW Championship belt that would represent the Impact Wrestling Undisputed World Championship. Hulk Hogan was in the ring and called out Pentagon Jr who came out and accepted the new belt and then Hogan started to talk to Pentagon Jr about his match with Cage at One Night Only: Cage Unleashed, but was interrupted by Austin Aries who came out and started to talk about how he should get a rematch when out walked Cage and Josh Matthews and Aries backed up and allowed them into the ring. Matthews mentioned that Cage would gladly give Aries a title shot, if he wanted it after he wont the match at One Night Only, and that caused a reaction in Pentagon Jr who got right up in the face of Cage….and then Cage gave him a pie face and a fight was on…a fight that Cage won when he slammed Pentagon Jr through the table with the belt on it! But he wasn’t done as he picked up the trophy, raised it above his head…and drove it straight down on Pentagon Jr breaking it across his back!! The show ended with Cage standing over the broken remains of the trophy, the table, and the Champion!
Final Grade: B

Quote:
X-Plosion Tapings:

Rob Moore and Don Callis recapped the new title presentation to Pentagon Jr at the end of Impact Wreslting and everything that occurred.

After spending the last week in the Maritimes Impact Wrestling was off to Quebec, where I was able to join them after spending some time filming in Vancouver for this season of Arrow. It's going to be hard to make every show the next couple of months, but I will try to be present for as many as possible, while ensuring that the scheduling will allow me to fly in for every PPPV event. Having access to a private jet can be helpful, but for tonight it's off to the Pavillion Wilson in Quebec City....
Quote:
Match 1: World X Cup Round 1: CIMA vs. Doug Williams

Thoughts on the Match: I expected a good match from these two, although I was worried if the fans would know who CIMA was, but they managed to over deliver with a great match. Both are ring veterans who managed to get the fans into it by the end and then Williams got the pin fall victory to even up the points between Team Japan and Team UK.

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling but didn't have much heat, Doug Williams defeated CIMA in 12:49 by pinfall with a Chaos Theory.

Grade: B-
Quote:
Rob Moore and Don Callis welcomed everyone to Impact Wrestling and spoke about the great opening match and then moved into discussing tonight’s Main Event tag team match and Callis reminding fans that last week Rey Mysterio Jr promised he would not tap out again tonight, but that Jake Hager said that Rey was going to let his fans down again tonight.
Quote:
Match 2: Eli Drake vs. Jacques Rougeau Jr.

Thoughts on the Match: Being as we will be in Quebec for the next couple of weeks it only seemed natural to do some promoting work with Jacques Rougeau, but then when I heard that Jacques would be hanging his boots up for real I inquired into whether or not he would be okay working a couple of shows for us which brings us to this match and a special six man tag team match next week. Of course there was also no way he was going over Eli Drake, so while this was a decent match it was played more for the local fans then for anyone thinking Rougeau had any chance so there was very little heat.

Result: In a bout that didn't have much heat and terrible wrestling, Eli Drake defeated Jacques Rougeau Jr. in 8:27 by pinfall with a Bottom Rung.

Grade: D
Quote:
After the match Eli Drake grabbed the microphone and spoke about how he was done with Scott Steiner and now he had his eyes on one thing and that was regaining the World Championship but he was interrupted by Moose who said he was tired of people trying to get in front of him, and while Cage may have beat him sound and square Eli Drake was not going to bypass him without a fight!
Quote:
The next segment had Raven standing in the ring and he called Eddie Edwards who came out from the back still showing signs of the violence he had gone through at Slammiversary as he imped into the ring. Raven congratulated him on his victory over Sami Callihan but then transitioned to telling Eddie that he had some advice for him because he didn’t want to see Eddie end up like him or Tommy (Dreamer) after their feud. Broken, obsessed, dealing with personal demons, instead Raven told Eddie to put it behind him and go home and “enjoy your wife like I finally learnt too” and there was a sudden switch in Eddie’s personality. “My wife? What the **** were you doing with my wife?” Raven tried to back up and say that wasn’t what he meant, but Eddie lost it and went after Raven taking him down and throwing him to the mat, before catching him with a low blow. Eddie rolled out of the ring and found a kendo stick and went after Raven with it, brutalizing him with shots until people came running out from the back and tried to get Raven to safety.
Quote:
Match 3: Argenis vs. Jimmy Rave

Thoughts on the Match: Another week, another impressive showing from Jimmy Raven who continues to show what a great addition to the roster he was. Meanwhile Argenis continues to wrack up the wins using his skills and this week was no different.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Argenis defeated Jimmy Rave in 8:14 by submission.

Grade: C
Quote:
A video played with Amy Dumas after her surprise last week with Amy saying she showed up last week because she wanted one last chance to prove herself, she wanted to show the whole world that she still had what it took to be Champion and there was one belt she had never had a shot at, and that was the Knockout’s Champion. Su Yung had gotten this far on fear, but Amy Dumas had nothing left to be afraid of. With that the match was official, Amy Dumas was going to get a shot at the Knockout’s Championship at One Night Only: Cage Unleashed.
Quote:
Match 4: World X Cup Round 1: Caristico vs. Dezmond Xavier

Thoughts on the Match: The appeal of helping Caristico redeem himself in front of the wrestling world definitely played into why I signed him. This match was a good first step as the former Mistico, and original Sin Cara, went out there and worked his style of match with Xavier who was able to keep up. Most impressively when the match was over, after Caristico picked up the two points for Team Mexico, Caristico was uninjured! Definitely a good first step!

Result: In a decent match, Caristico defeated Dezmond Xavier in 7:39 by pinfall with a La Mística.

Grade: C+
Quote:
Late Night IMPACT….with Classic Colt Cabana! After his introduction monologue, Colt welcomed the current X-Division Champion Matt Sydal. Colt questioned him about his “third eye” and made some jokes about that which started to irritate Sydal but then the whole segment was crashed by Paul London who was wondering about getting a title shot now, and Colt was quick to yell for no violence “on set.” Sydal pacified Paul by saying that he had “almost promised himself a worthy threat, there was just one last obstacle….the still undefeated Argenis. If you beat him next week then I will gladly give you the X-Division title shot that you will have earned!”
Quote:
We had a segment showing a brawl between LAX and Street Royalty from earlier that saw Eddie Kingston and Willie Prince managing to leave LAX lying face down in the streets after the brawl in the parking lot.
Quote:
Match 5: Chandler Park vs. Kongo Kong

Thoughts on the Match: Both of these men have experience wrestling in front of Canadian crowds so I expected something better out of them, but this was just not good in any way, shape or form. But it was important for the story we are planning on telling, so we’ll just move on to the exciting post match stuff….

Result: In a terrible match, Kongo Kong defeated Chandler Park in 7:42 by pinfall with The Cracker-jack.

Grade: D
Quote:
After the match Kongo Kong was not done with Chandler Park and continued to splash him, and we had Winter yelling and trying to go after him with Joseph Park holding her back…and then out came “The Survivor” Johnny Impact who chased Kongo Kong and Jimmy Jacobs out of the ring with a steel chair.
Quote:
Alicia Atout interviewed Andrew Everett and Zema Ion who were so pleased with the way their open challenge had worked out last week that they were issuing another open challenge for next week….with the Tag Team titles on the line!

Josh Matthews came out to stand on the stage with Cage who was carrying a part of the trophy from last week. Matthews promised that at One Night Only Cage WOULD be unleashed and the trophy he would be carrying around was the World Championship!
Quote:
Match 6: “American Cowboy” James Storm/”American Great” Jake Hager vs. The Lucha Brotherhood

Thoughts on the Match: The story of this match was obvious as Hager kept going after the ankle of Rey Mysterio. Austin Aries joined Rob Moore and Don Callis for commentary and he was more then willing to take shots at both members of The Lucha Brotherhood, and even Theodore Nemeth after Moore and Callis explained he was unable to be in attendance tonight after he had come down ill before the show began. The finish of the match saw Rey Fenix come flying through the ropes and launched Storm towards Austin Aries at the table which ruined the banana that Aries had been eating. Aries got up to confront Fenix about that, and the distraction led to Storm recovering and taking Fenix out with a Superkick! Meanwhile Rey Mysterio had put Hager down with a 619, but was having a hard time climbing the rope with his injured ankle. When he finally came off of the top rope Hager got his knee’s up and Rey landed on those with his frog splash, and then Hager rolled him over and locked in the Ankle Lock and managed to get another submission victory over Rey!

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, James Storm and Jake Hager defeated Rey Fénix and Rey Mysterio Jr. in 17:40 when Jake Hager defeated Rey Mysterio Jr. by submission with an Ankle Lock.

Grade: B-
Overall Grade: C+

Quote:
X-Plosion Tapings:

A video on Rey Mysterio Jr and him tapping out twice to Jake Hager and the promise that Rey will be at Impact Wrestling on Thursday to issue a challenge to Hager.

In a bout that had terrible wrestling and non-existent crowd heat, Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley defeated Karl Briscoe and Mitch Thompson in 7:53 when Trevor Lee defeated Karl Briscoe by submission. (D-)

After the match Trevor Lee called Dezmond Xavier into the ring and told him this is what victory looks like and he better not screw things up for the Cult of Lee because they were going to win the World X Cup and he better not get in the way….and the same goes for Rich Swann who was in the ring and gave Lee a sideways glance at that.

In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Tenille Dashwood defeated Kira in 8:28 by pinfall with a Roaring Elbow. (D)

Tessa Blanchard had been on commentary during the match but now stood up on the ring apron with Rachael Ellering on the other side and Tenille Dashwood caught in between. Just when things looked like it was going to get real bad for Tenille….out from the back ran…..TAYA! She was back! And with the sides evened up Tessa and Rachael retreated.

In a bout that had terrible wrestling and non-existent crowd heat, Robbie Solar and Kid Lykos defeated Desi Hit Squad in 7:36 when Kid Lykos defeated Rohit Raju by pinfall with a Sliced Bread #2. (D)

Tonight was the first show I had to miss as I was unable to be in Montreal at the "Winter Stadium" at the Montreal University but I had spoke to Don and the crew on the phone and would be watching the show with my phone nearby. I had also managed to finish locking in a deal that would be the direct result of a major announcement tonight....and it was all to set up something BIG for the fall....
Quote:
The opening of this show was meant to look chaotic with a sudden transition from the introduction of Kid Lykos and Robbie Solar to show a fight going on backstage with Pentagon Jr having attacked Cage. There wasn’t much footage shown before the cameraman got knocked over and then the fight continued with the camera on its side before going back to the entrance of Black (formerly Bxb) Hulk and Naruki Doi.
Quote:
Match 1: World X Cup Round 1: Black Hulk/Naruki Doi vs. Kid Lykos/Robbie Solar

Thoughts on the Match: I hoped that the hot opening would get the fans excited for this match since only one of the wrestlers had ever been in Impact Wrestling. After a fast paced match it was Black Hulk who picked up the victory and the two points for Team Mexico meaning that Will Ospreay needed to win the Captain’s match at One Night Only for Team UK to win this round.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Black Hulk and Naruki Doi defeated Kid Lykos and Robbie Solar in 8:05 when Black Hulk defeated Robbie Solar by pinfall with an E.V.O.P..

Grade: C

With the official opening of the show Rob Moore and Don Callis hyped the Main Event match of the two undefeated’s….Paul London and Argenis. One match would win and remain undefeated and get a title shot at One Night Only: Cage Unleashed.

A video of oVe played with Callihan at first taking pride in making Eddie Edwards snap, before talking about how tonight he was going to put a legend out to pasture when he ended the Rougeau line!
Quote:
Match 2: Cedric, Emile, and Jacques Rougeau Jr vs. oVe

Thoughts on the Match: Retirement was just around the corner for Jacques, but here tonight he was getting a special match teaming with his sons against oVe. Sami Callihan was all in for that as he had fun brutalizing Jacques youngest son Emile while Jacques had to watch. This was a perfectly worked tag team match with Emile finally getting the hot tag to Jacques who cleared house. While Jacques got to show off some of his trademark moves, he eventually had to tag out to Cedric and then things continued to go downhill from there until finally Sami nailed Emile with a Piledriver that picked up the victory for oVe.

Result: In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Ohio Versus Everyone (Sami Callihan, Dave Crist and Jake Crist) defeated Jacques Rougeau Jr., Emile Rougeau and Cedric Rougeau in 6:59 when Sami Callihan defeated Emile Rougeau by pinfall with a nasty looking Stump Piledriver

Grade: D
Quote:
Backstage there was an interview with “The Survivor” Johnny Impact standing beside Chandler Park, Joseph Park and Winter. Impact announced he would be facing Kongo one on one at One Night Only, and that there was a lot that Kong needed to atone for, and when Impact was done with Kong he would turn his attention to Jacobs.

Match 3: Chandler Park/’The Survivor’ Johnny Impact vs. Jimmy Jacobs/Kongo Kong

Thoughts on the Match: I didn’t think this match would be great, but I was actually a bit disappointed with how it turned out. It turns out that Johnny Impact may be good, but he’s not quite good enough to make up for three wrestlers….does not bode well for the singles match with Kong at One Night Only but that was a story line started before I took over and I wanted to have the continuity of seeing it end.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Jimmy Jacobs and Kongo Kong defeated "The Survivor" Johnny Impact and Chandler Park in 7:33 when Kongo Kong defeated Chandler Park by pinfall with The Cracker-jack.

Grade: D+

Theodore Nemeth made his way out from the back to loud cheers, stopping to introduce himself to Don Callis and Rob Moore with Callis yelling at Nemeth “I know who you are” before Nemeth got into the ring where he enjoyed the ovation from the fans. “Teddy Nemeth” as he wanted to be called spoke about how he had come to Impact Wrestling to let the shackles fall off and he was going to show the fans exactly what he could do in the ring as well as what he could do on the microphone….which is when he was interrupted by James Storm who came out to rant about Nemeth….and then caught him with a Superkick! “How do you like that boy? Because there’s a whole lot more where that came from!” Later on in the show we had Moore and Callis announce that the two men would meet in a match at One Night Only!
Quote:
Match 4: Cage vs. Scott Steiner

Thoughts on the Match: Yes, I’m the sick man who asked for this match to take place even knowing that Scott Steiner is slowing down. We made sure to get the face off at the beginning of the match in a bit of a past meet present sort of moment as these two men have a lot in common. The size, the amazing flying ability for a man of their size, and even their similar uber finishers (even if it’s been a while since Scott dropped anyone with a Steiner Screwdriver). These two put on a fun little match and then the torch was passed as Cage put Scott away after flying from the top turnbuckle.

Result: In a decent match, Cage defeated Scott Steiner in 7:37 by pinfall with a Flying Elbow Drop.

Match 5: Impact Wrestling World Tag Team Championship: Z & E© vs. Evil Uno/Josh Alexander

Thoughts on the Match: Unfortunately, we could not get the Super Smash Brother as Stu Grayson injured himself last week at the BCW show, so we had to settle for Josh Alexander instead. It was still an alright match that saw the Champs win another one of their open challenge matches.

Result: In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Z & E defeated Evil Uno and Josh Alexander in 7:50 when Zema Ion defeated Josh Alexander by pinfall with a Filipino Destroyer. Z & E make defence number 4 of their Impact World Tag Team titles.

Grade: C-

As Z & E celebrated after the match they were interrupted by Street Royalty who said they had taken LAX out last week and now wanted a shot at the gold.

The verbal confrontation was mostly carried out by Austin Aries who kept telling Rey Fenix to back up as he managed to get Rey Mysterio to agree to put his mask on the line to get the match. Finally Rey had enough and he challenge Aries to a match, which Aries said if Fenix really wanted to be embarrassed again then “sure” which is what Fenix was waiting for as he punches Aries in the face and the brawl was on!

Match 6: #1 Contendership to the X-Division Championship: Argenis vs. Paul London

Thoughts on the Match: Matt Sydal was at the commentary table which would play an important part in this even match. The two undefeated wrestlers went back and forth but eventually it looked like Paul was going to get the win as he had Argenis in place for the Shooting Star Press! Instead Matt Sydal left the table and pulled Argenis out of the ring. Referee Brian Hebner jumped out to yell at Sydal, but Matt was saying he was worried that Argenis was hurt! London dropped down from the top turnbuckle and had his back turned…as YANG slid into the ring with the X-Division Championship and nailed Paul in the back of the head with it! Sydal picked Argenis up and rolled him back into the ring on top of London and that was enough for the three count as Sydal had screwed London and ended his winning streak!

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling but didn't have much heat, Argenis defeated Paul London in 17:50 by pinfall following interference from YANG.

Another week I had to miss the show live, but enjoyed watching the setup of the match as it was another outdoor show at MNP Park at Carleton University. While I was missing the show I was also pretty excited about something that had happened this week in the world of twitter. It seems that Sami Callihan's Piledriver on Emile Rougeau last week had drawn a lot of praise, and that praise made it's way all the way to the man himself, Mick Foley! Mick tweeted out a response to Sami Callihan that the move was now his, and Sami responded by renaming the move the Cactus Driver, definitely nice to get some position attention for Impact Wrestling from the wrestling legends out there....

Match 1: El Hijo del Fantasma/Taiji Ishimori vs. Rich Swann/Will Ospreay

Thoughts on the Match: As a reminder from Rob and Don, in the result of a tie in the World X Cup the winner of the round would be determined by who won the Captain's match at One Night Only. Rob Moore and Don Callis made sure to point out that this was the first match on TV for Impact Wrestling that Will Ospreay has been in which is why he started the match off against El Hijo del Fantasma. This was a fast paced match with only El Hijo slowing things down when he was in the ring to rile up the fans while he worked over who was in the ring with him. The match ended with the same two men in the ring that it began with, and Fantasma caught Will out of the air as he looked to get going for the OsCutter and pinned him after a Bridging German Suplex.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, El Hijo del Fantasma and Taiji Ishimori defeated Rich Swann and Will Ospreay in 12:53 when El Hijo del Fantasma defeated Will Ospreay by pinfall with a Bridging German Suplex.

Rob Moore and Don Callis welcomed everyone to the final show before One Night Only: Cage Unleashed and spoke about the six man tag team match that would be the Main Event for the evening, with Callis making sure to get in a dig at Rey Mysterio on how long it would take for him to tap out.

Match 2: KC Spinelli/Kiera Hogan vs. Rachael Ellering/Tessa Blanchard

Thoughts on the Match: KC Spinelli and Kiera Hogan have been training in Border City Wrestling so it made sense to get them some time with the Main Roster while we are in Ontario, and what better way then against the two multi generation talents? This was a warm up for Blanchard and Ellering prior to their tag team match at One Night Only and Blanchard was the one who got the submission victory.

Result: In a bout that had terrible wrestling and non-existent crowd heat, Tessa Blanchard and Rachael Ellering defeated KC Spinelli and Kiera Hogan in 7:36 when Tessa Blanchard defeated KC Spinelli by submission with a Figure Four Leglock.

Match 3: Rene Dupree vs. Sami Callihan

Thoughts on the Match: Rob Moore and Don Callis made sure that they talked plenty about Mick Foley’s recent twitter blurb, and of course the match was all about putting Sami over as he dominated for almost the entire match. That was until Rene got one Slam in, and then celebrated with his familiar dance, and then turned around…..and right into the CACTUS DRIVER! Of course that was that!

Result: In an extremely short match, Sami Callihan defeated René Duprée in 4:04 by pinfall with a Cactus Driver.

Match 4: Andrew Everett vs. Willie Prince

Thoughts on the Match: Both men were accompanied to the ring by their tag team partners which did not play into the finish of the match as Willie Prince managed to end the match with the Chocolate Thunder Driver, but after the match the beatdown was on and Street Royalty stood tall going into the PPV.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Willie Prince defeated Andrew Everett in 10:39 by pinfall with a Royal Driver.

Alicia Atout had an interview with Amy Dumas who admitted she was nervous about getting into the ring with the supernatural freak Su Yung, but that Dumas needed to prove to herself and her fans that she still had something left in her tank and it began tonight with her warm up match against the Undead Bridesmaid.

Match 5: Argenis/Paul London vs. Matt Sydal/YANG

Thoughts on the Match: Rob Moore and Don Callis announced that Paul London would get his shot at revenge on YANG when he faced him at One Night Only, although this match itself was just a high flying, show stealing sort of match that whet the appetite of the fans before One Night Only: Cage Unleashed.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Paul London and Argenis defeated YANG and Matt Sydal in 7:56 when Argenis defeated YANG by submission.

The Lucha Brotherhood responded with Rey Mysterio Jr passionately talking about how upset he was for letting his fans down by tapping out in match after match, but he had put his mask on the line against Jake Hager because if he couldn’t beat “American Great” for the people then he wasn’t worthy of wearing the mask that was the greatest source of bride for a Lucha wrestler. Rey Fenix was also fired up about his match against Austin Aries and then Pentagon Jr ended it promising No Fear against Cage.
Quote:
Match 6: “American Cowboy” James Storm vs. Moose

Thoughts on the Match: I will admit to being completely underwhelmed by Moose since I took over as President of Impact Wrestling, but tonight was a different story. Him and Storm went out there and had a great hard hitting bout that began with Teddy Nemeth watching from the announcers table.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, James Storm defeated Moose in 7:39 by pinfall with a Super Kick after a distraction from Eli Drake.

Match 7: “American Great” Jake Hager/Austin Aries/Cage vs. The Lucha Brotherhood

Thoughts on the Match: There was a lot of storylines twisted throughout this match with the history between all the men. Cage was just getting into the feud but things were already personal between him and Pentagon Jr after the brawls they had. The end of the match was familiar with Aries taking Rey Fenix down with a Brain Buster outside of the ring, Hager had Rey Mysterio Jr locked in an Ankle Lock outside of the ring and Cage dominated Pentagon Jr before ending the match with a Pumphandle Facebuster proving that he could defeat the Champion mere days before his title shot.

Result: In a bout that had great wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Cage, Austin Aries and Jake Hager defeated The Lucha Brotherhood (Rey Fénix, Rey Mysterio Jr. and Pentagon Jr.) in 17:22 when Cage defeated Pentagon Jr. by pinfall with a Pumphandle Facebuster.

Match 1: World X Cup Round 1 Captains Match: Taiji Ishimori (4 points for Team Japan) vs. Will Ospreay (2 points for Team UK)

Thoughts on the Match: It’s a battle of the Bullet Club and Chaos Junior Heavyweight’s! This was not quite the same thing you would expect to see in New Japan though as the fans of America still aren’t quite sure about Will Ospreay, and Taiji Ishimori is not the greatest highflyer out there so this match was a bit disappointing. Things did heat up near the end after Ishimori had spent a bunch of the match working Ospreay’s neck the phenomenal Brit began his comeback. A comeback that was ended when Isimori caught him in the back with a Dropkick as Ospreay went for the OsCutter which dropped Will to the mat and from there Ishimori picked Wil up and dropped him with a Hammerlock DDT!

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Taiji Ishimori defeated Will Ospreay in 12:49 by pinfall with a Hammerlock DDT to earn the Round 1 victory for Team Japan

Match 2: “American Cowboy” James Storm vs. Teddy Nemeth
Thoughts on the Match: This was an important match for Teddy Nemeth as it gave him the chance to show the world exactly what he could do without the limitations of the “WWE Style.” Teddy did start the match off on fire until Storm stopped that with a thumb to the eye. That allowed Storm to slow the match down and gave Teddy the opportunity to show off his ability to sell. At one point both men went for the Superkick at the same time which dropped both men, but as Nemeth pulled his way to the feet he started to get the fans behind him and he went for another Superkick that connected with Storm and then Teddy fell on to Storm and only got a two count. As both men climbed up Storm pushed Nemeth backwards which knocked the referee out of position so that Storm could get a low blow and then picked Nemeth up and connected with an Eight Second Ride and picked up the three count over the newcomer!

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, James Storm defeated Theodore "Teddy" Nemeth in 12:51 by pinfall with an Eight Second Ride.

Match 3: Impact Wrestling Knockout’s Championship: Su Yung© vs. Amy Dumas

Thoughts on the Match: Amy Dumas got a great reaction as she came out for this match with the fans honestly getting behind her surprise run with Impact Wrestling, and her surprise return to in ring competition for that matter. For anyone with an eye for wrestling though it was very clear that it was Su Yung who carried this match as Amy just doesn’t have it anymore. We used every trick we could to try and cover that up with this match and managed to get an okay result from that. After Su Yung had controlled most of the match Amy did manage to get a Twist of Fate, kind of a weird move for her to use, that set up a Moonsault that the fans actually bought as the finish until Su Yung managed to just barely kick out. Dumas looked lost after that move as if she had no idea how to beat Su and win the Knockout’s title. Looking to go back to the well Amy pulled Su Yung up and tried to get another Twist of Fate, but this time Su Yung reversed it into a Panic Switch and then locked in the Yellow Fever submission that not only convincingly looked like it broke Amy’s arm, but also was enough to give Su Yung the HUGE submission victory to retain the Knockout’s Championship.

Result: In a decent match, Su Yung defeated Amy Dumas in 7:35 by submission with a Yellow Fever. Su Yung makes defence number 3 of her Impact Knockouts title.

Grade: C-/57
Quote:
After the match Su Yung and the Undead Bridesmaid’s looked to end Amy Dumas career, but Serena Deeb ran out from the back to try and make the save. The numbers were too much….until ALLIE came running out to even the odds and chase them away, although it looked like they had won the war as Amy Dumas came to her feet clutching the arm that may have been broken with the Yellow Fever.

Match 4: Paul London vs. YANG

Thoughts on the Match: Since Paul London came to Impact Wrestling we have presented him as a skilled, experienced wrestler who used his skills to put on great matches, but this time it was about a different sort of Paul London. This was a fed up London who went after YANG and tried to punish him for costing him a shot at the X-Division Championship. Everything was going Paul’s way until he went for a move off of the ring apron and missed YANG and crashed rib first across the guard rail. YANG took advantage of that and looked to end the match after he hit his Corkscrew Splash but that only got a two count out of it. With Paul still down YANG climbed to the top to go for another one but Paul stopped him on the top and connected with a Spider Suplex that took YANG down, and then Paul pulled himself back to the top turnbuckle and turned around and connected with the Shooting Star Press! London made sure to hold his ribs as he went for the pin fall and picked up the three count!

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Paul London defeated YANG in 8:20 by pinfall with a Shooting Star Press.

Grade: C+/69

Match 5: Austin Aries vs. Rey Fénix

Thoughts on the Match: This match began with Rey doing a Stepup Dive on Austin Aries and then Fénix followed that up with a brawl on the floor. When the action did end up back in the ring Aries used the fury of Fénix against him with a Cradle pin fall attempt that managed to get a two count. Their battle went back and forth until Aries looked to end the match with a Brainbuster….but he did not go for the pin. Instead it was all about Aries trying to embarrass Fénix by removing his mask, but Rey had learnt his lesson from One Night Only: Zero Fear and he made sure his mask was reinforced so that Aries could not rip it off. Furthermore Aries going for the mask reinvigorated Fénix who came up with fists and kicks of fury that dropped Austin, and Rey was not done as he continued to hit move after move until he connected with a Meteora that was enough to give Rey the big victory over Aries!

Result: In a bout that had great wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Rey Fénix defeated Austin Aries in 12:36 by pinfall with a Meteora.

Match 6: Rachael Ellering/Tessa Blanchard vs. Taya/Tenille Dashwood

Thoughts on the Match: This match continues to illustrate what most already know….Tessa Blanchard is one of the best female wrestlers in the world. That didn’t stop all four women from going out there and trying to one up each other, with Taya showing just a hint of rust after being out of wrestling for her wedding and honeymoon. Tessa and Rachael did try and keep Taya in the ring to take advantage of that and it set up for a hot tag to Tenille who came in and used her trademark offense to take over. But even that was short lived as Tessa got back into the ring and ended up getting a Figure Four locked on and Tenille had to make the tag to Taya. That is when things shifted for good as Tessa tagged Rachael back in, but then ended up fighting with Tenille Dashwood which distracted the referee. Taya picked Rachael up and dropped her with the Road to Valhalla. When Taya went for the pin the referee was still out of position, and did not see as someone slid into the ring and attacked Taya, picking her up and dropping her with an Air Raid Crash. She then rolled Rachel Ellering over the prone body of Taya and left the ring, and when the referee turned around he count the pin fall.

Result: In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Tessa Blanchard and Rachael Ellering defeated Taya and Tenille Dashwood in 8:06 when Rachael Ellering defeated Taya by pinfall. During the match we also had a woman in a hoodie and covered face run in and attack Taya.

Match 7: Impact Wrestling World Tag Team Championship: Z & E© vs. Street Royalty

Thoughts on the Match: This was a wild brawl as the four men were instructed to do that to cover up for some of their deficiencies. Andrew Everett and Zema Ion did have some high flying moves that they brought it, but Eddie Kingston and Willie Prince just worked them over. Their cockiness got the best of them as Eddie Kingston was working Andrew Everett over outside of the ring throwing him over the guard rail and into the crowd, but that just gave Zema Ion the opportunity to get the pin fall victory on Willie Prince after a Filipino Destroyer!

Result: In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Z & E defeated Street Royalty in 7:59 when Zema Ion defeated Willie Prince by pinfall with a Filipino Destroyer. Z & E make defence number 5 of their Impact World Tag Team titles.

Match 8: World X Cup Round 1 Captains Match: El Hijo del Fantasma (2 points for Team Mexico) vs. Rich Swann (2 points for Team USA)

Thoughts on the Match: El Hijo del Fantasma was out by himself as Don Callis and Rob Moore spoke about the divide in Team Mexico as the other wrestlers were sick of El Hijo thinking he was better then everyone else. Rich Swann tried to come out by himself but Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley were not far behind him. This match went back and forth but when it looked like El Hijo del Fantasma was going to win the Cult of Lee sprung to action. Caleb Konley got up on the ring apron to distract the referee and Trevor Lee tripped Fantasma as he bounced off of the ropes which set him up for a Chicken Fried Driver from Rich Swann who did not see the interference. A three count later and Team USA had won Round 1!

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Rich Swann defeated El Hijo del Fantasma in 8:15 by pinfall with a Chicken Fried Driver following interference from Trevor Lee to win Round 1 for Team USA meaning they would face Team UK in Round 2 with Team Japan and Team Mexico locking up

Match 9: Eli Drake vs. Moose

Thoughts on the Match: Eli Drake made sure to call the fans “dummies” on the way to the ring since they were many in the crowd who were cheering him. “Mr Impact Wrestling” did receive the louder cheers of the two men though, and soon the match had begun. While the last match had featured high flying, this match was more of a brawl as these two men each tried to outdo the other with heavy hitting moves. It looked like Moose was going to end the match with the Game Change, but Eli Drake managed to reverse under that and picked Moose up and connected with the Gravy Train, but Moose managed to kick out at two. Drake pulled Moose to his feet and set him up for the Bottom Rung which was enough to win the match for him.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Eli Drake defeated Moose in 7:47 by pinfall with a Bottom Rung.

Match 10: Impact Wrestling X-Division Championship: Matt Sydal© vs. Argenis

Thoughts on the Match: This was an incredibly fast match as Matt Sydal desperately wanted to put the undefeated Argenis away, while Argenis continued to show the skills that had kept him undefeated thus far. The finish of the match was intended to show the intelligence of Matt as he looked like he was going to set up the Shooting Star Press, but when Argenis rolled out of the way Matt Sydal simply dropped off of the top turnbuckle, rolled through an Oklahoma Roll to pick Argenis up right into a Here It Is Driver which won the match, ended the undefeated streak and kept the X-Division Championship for Sydal.

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling but didn't have much heat, Matt Sydal defeated Argenis in 7:58 by pinfall with a Here It Is Driver. Matt Sydal makes defence of his Impact X-Division title.

Match 11: Kongo Kong vs. “The Survivor” Johnny Impact

Thoughts on the Match: This match was kept short to hide the deficiencies of Kongo Kong, but amazingly it was better then I was expecting. Kong was given some time to shine, but not much as Johnny Impact fired away and a Flying Chuck set up a Starship Pain that finished off Kongo Kong and gave Johnny Impact a shot to go after Jimmy Jacobs.

Result: In a decent match, "The Survivor" Johnny Impact defeated Kongo Kong in 8:26 by pinfall with a Starship Pain.

Grade: C/64

After the match Johnny Impact rolled Kong out of the ring and looked to have Jimmy Jacobs cornered…..when the lights went out! When they returned…..


…ABYSS WAS STANDING IN THE RING! Impact looked at him wearily….just as Abyss ran him over with a Clothesline. Impact tried to fight back but Abyss book him down with a Chokeslam, before Jacobs yelled for Abyss to “finish it” which led to a Blackhole Slam! Kong had returned to the ring and dropped a Splash on Impact, while Jacobs enjoyed watching both of his monster’s stand tall.

Match 12: Rey’s Mask is on the line: “American Great” Jake Hager vs. Rey Mysterio Jr.

Thoughts on the Match: A video played prior to the match that highlighted the importance of the mask in the history of Luchador wrestling, and Rey promising that he may have taken the mask off once, but he would die before he is forced to remove it again. Jake Hager was locked in to one thing going into this match, and that continued throughout the match as Hager would try at every opportunity to go after the ankle. At one point Hager looked like he was going to connect with a Gutwrench Superplex, but instead he let Rey drop down until Hager had him hanging in the air with the Anklelock locked in! Of course Rey was able to get to the ropes to force the break but what a painful looking move. The first mistake that “American Great” made was when he got cocky and tried to rip the mask off of Mysterio instead of staying on the ankle and that allowed Rey to fight back. It actually looked like Rey was going to end it after he connected with a 619, but instead of going for a pin Rey stepped back into the ring and dropped down and was fiddling with his wrestling boots. That was the moment that Hager was waiting for as he nailed Mysterio from behind and grabbed the ankle and twisted it…..until Rey’s boot popped right off! Hager was in shock and Rey managed to roll him up for the three count!! The fans exploded as Rey rolled out of the ring with his boot and pointed his finger skyward in a tribute to his friend Eddie.

Result: In a bout that had great wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Rey Mysterio Jr. defeated Jake Hager in 12:31 by pinfall with a quick roll up.

A great video played this time focusing on Pentagon Jr and his path to unifying the Impact Wrestling World Championship and how he wasn’t afraid of anyone….including Cage. After the video Impact Wrestling Global Ambassador and Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan made his way out to join the commentary table.

Match 13: Impact Wrestling Undisputed World Championship: Pentagon Jr© vs. Cage

Thoughts on the Match: Cage came out carrying part of the trophy he had wrecked over the back of Pentagon Jr to try and up the intimidation from the Machine. Pentagon Jr came out with the Impact Wrestling Undisputed World Championship belt, the new one unveiled after Slammiversary, and the fight was on right away. The plan for this match was that Pentagon Jr would be fired up and throw most of the offense at Cage; but Cage would be made to look good by taking everything that Pentagon had and never go down. For Pentagon the longer the match went without successfully hurting Cage, without even getting him off of his feet, the more frustrated he was. Cage made a big mistake though when he sent Pentagon Jr off of the ropes and then bent over looking for a Body Slam. Instead Pentagon Jr stopped his momentum and instead tried to hit his Fear Factor Package Piledriver. The World Champion was unable to get Cage up, and instead Cage stood up with Pentagon around his head and then dropped him to the mat with an Alabama Slam. From there the Challenger pulled the Champion to his feet and hit a Pumphandle Sitout Facebuster. With Pentagon Jr down Cage went to the top rope and came off looking for an Elbow Drop….but Pentagon Jr moved out of the way! Cage was finally unsteady as he climbed to his feet and Pentagon Jr took advantage of that by hitting a Slingblade that finally put Cage down! Not for long though as Cage immediately rolled over and started to climb to his feet until Pentagon Jr took him down with a Curbstomp! But Cage was still trying to get to his feet so Pentagon Jr hit ANOTHER Curbstomp and again Cage would NOT stay down! The Champion ran and jumped over Cage, got up on the second turnbuckle and hit a Curbstomp from there! Referee Brian Hebner got immediately into position….ONE….CAGE KICKED OUT!! Pentagon Jr could not believe it and something snapped as he rolled out of the ring and walked over the timekeeper and threw them out of the way, grabbing the steel chair he had been sitting on and snapped it closed before sliding into the ring. Brian Hebner tried to get in the way, but Pentagon Jr swung and nailed Cage with the steel chair! ANOTHER chair shot! One more as the referee was finally calling for the bell and DISQUALIFIED Pentagon Jr!

Result: In a bout that had superb wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Cage defeated Pentagon Jr. in 18:11 by disqualification.

After the match the bell was ringing as Pentagon Jr took another shot at Cage with the steel chair, and then another, but Cage was slowly climbing back to his feet. As Pentagon Jr went for another chair shot from off the turnbuckle Cage grabbed the chair, and pulled it away from Pentagon Jr sending Pentagon Jr to the mat. The World Champion came back to his feet and went right at Cage, who ended up sending him flying through the ropes to the outside. Cage followed him out and attacked him near the announcers table. Security came out to try and stop the brawl, but it just led to a chaotic scene as the PPV was going off the air with even Hulk Hogan trying to get involved to stop the fight.
