September 13, 2018:

I got off the phone after going through the show in Vancouver, and speaking to the two competitors who would officially be joining the main roster tonight. I would have really loved to be at the show tonight considering what is planned to transpire, but I have a feeling this will be one of the most talked about Impact's in a long time.....I hope the fans like it, although I know some will be rather disappointed.....

Match 1: Bound For Glory Series Quarter-Final: Fenix vs. James Storm

Thoughts on the Match: As promised Teddy Nemeth had made his way out to the commentary table to watch this match, just in case anything fishy happened. After facing off in several matches since Slammiversary, some singles and some tag, it was not unexpected that these two would start the show off with an exciting match that had the fans buzzing almost from the moment the bell rang. Things went back and forth until Storm reversed a Tilt-a whirl into an Eye of the Storm…but it launched Fenix into the referee and took him down for a few moments. While he was recovering Storm slid out of the ring and grabbed a steel chair and slid back into the ring as he raised the chair above his head to swing it at Fenix when Teddy left the table and slid into the ring and grabbed the chair away. After a brief struggle over the chair, Teddy gained control of it and Storm spun around….right into a Meteora from Fenix! With the referee conscious again it was a three count and Fenix was into the Final Four!

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Fénix defeated James Storm in 12:58 by pinfall with a Meteora. During the match we also had Theodore "Teddy" Nemeth distract Storm.

Grade: B
Quote:
With the introduction for the show Rob Moore and Don Callis spoke about the three men who had already made their way through to the next round of the Bound For Glory Series Semi-Finals, while Moore tried to get an answer from Callis if he knew who the mystery opponent was for Impact in the Main Event, but Callis played coy and would not answer.
Quote:
A video was played showing Eddie Edwards in the back speaking to his kendo stick, with Edwards talking about how he had tried to be a nice guy and where did it get him? He wasn’t the chosen one by the higher ups, Johnny Impact was the chosen one and that was going to be something Impact was going to regret, that and putting his hands on Edwards.
Quote:
Alicia Atout stood with the Impact Wrestling World Tag Team Champions Andrew Everett and Zema Ion who threw out another Open Challenge for next week with the tag titles on the line!
Quote:
A video recap played about the World X Cup with the announcement that Will Ospreay would be returning next week on Impact Wrestling.
Quote:
Match 2: Kid Lykos vs. YANG

Thoughts on the Match: After impressing during the Word X Cup, Kid Lykos had officially been added to the Impact Wrestling roster and he continued to impress in this exciting back and forth match. Lykos came close to winning the match when he attempted to hit his Full Moon Spanish Fly from the top rope, but YANG knocked him off of the top turnbuckle and then connected with the Corkscrew Moonsault and picked up the victory.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, YANG defeated Kid Lykos in 7:42 by pinfall with a Corkscrew Moonsault.

Grade: C
Quote:
Paul London came out to the ring to confront YANG with the truth that Matt Sydal was just using him to help retain his title, but Sydal came out from the back and was arguing against that and the two went to double team London but he struck first nailing YANG and then Sydal, and then dropping YANG with the DDT. Sydal left the ring as London went to the top and connected with THREE London Calling Shooting Star Presses injuring the ribs of YANG who was left rolling around holding them in pain while London made eye contact with the retreating Sydal.
Quote:
The mysterious video packaged from last week played again, but this time words were overlaid over the video of the world coming to an end with two biblical verses seemingly being highlighted: Genesis 3:1 and Exodus 4:2-3.
Quote:
Alicia Atout was backstage where she announced that at Victory Road there would be a Triple Threat match between LAX, Street Royalty and Hernandez and Homicide with the winning team getting a tag title shot at Bound For Glory. She also announced that each team would have a warm up match over the next three weeks, but that the other two teams were banned from the arena to keep things under control. Then she introduced her guest….Konnan! His LAX team was banned from the arena tonight, but Konnan was allowed to be there as long as he promised to be on his best behavior. Alicia tried to question Konnan about his loyalty, but he would have none of that saying he had already proven his loyalty and instead he wanted to speak about the so called “LAX OGz”, his brothers, his blood and how he was happy they were back but that he only thing on his mind was getting Ortiz and Santana to the top of the mountain once more.
Quote:
Match 3: LAX OGz vs. Motor City Machine Guns

Thoughts on the Match: This match was like a little trip through time as two classic teams from the ‘glory days’ went at in a sprint of a match. Older they may be, but all of the men did take their turn diving through or over the ropes on to other members of the team. The end of the match saw Homicide setting up for Da Gringo Killer but Alex Shelley reversed out of that, but a Lariat from Homicide ended the match.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, L.A.X. OGz defeated Motor City Machine Guns in 9:13 when Homicide defeated Alex Shelley by pinfall with a Lariat.

Grade: C
Quote:
After the match an emotional Alex Shelly grabbed a microphone and began to speak, apologizing to Sabin and to the fans, speaking about how they had been going up and down the roads for a decade now, but that maybe the time had come, that maybe his body was just too broken down……but before he could say much more two men jumped the ring from the crowd and took down both Shelley and Sabin! Some, but not all, the fans recognized them but Moore and Don Callis made sure to point out that they were Travis Banks and Chris Brookes, two great wrestlers who had made a devastating tag team both in the UK and in BCW.
Quote:
Johnny Impact had a response for Eddie Edwards where he was disgusted by Edwards actions, but promised that he would have eyes in the back of his head and that if Edwards stood up he’s get knocked right back down to Slamtown.
Quote:
Match 4: Kim ‘The Viper’ Benson vs. Mickie Knuckles

Thoughts on the Match: Making her return to Impact Wrestling……Mickie Knuckles who the fans remembered as being dominant in her days past, but now she was going face to face with the undefeated Kim Benson who made short work of Knuckles on her way to maintaining undefeated.

Result: In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and non-existent crowd heat, Kim 'The Viper' Benson defeated Mickie Knuckles in 3:09 by pinfall with a Michinoku Driver.

Grade: D+
Quote:
A vignette played for the soon to debut Albert Carter Jr (the former ACH) with Carter dressed up very nicely and speaking about the future, talking about visionaries who had paved the way for him, but that no one, and he means no one, could have predicted that greatness would arrive in the form of AC Jr.
Quote:
Jimmy Jacobs and his Monstourage had a promo response to Sami Callihan and oVe with Jacobs telling Callihan that the worst mistake they ever could have done was getting in his business, and that now the Monsters were going to be unleashed.
Quote:
Austin Aries was out with Jake Hager to announce the stipulations for the World title match at Victory Road but before Aries could finish speaking Hager took the microphone from him and told Aries that he may want to wait to make the announcement, because Hager was challenging Pentagon Jr for a World title match…next week! Hager rationalized that since he had defeated Pentagon Jr last week that he deserved the shot and he was just waiting for Pentagon to accept….which is when the World Champion made an appearance and with his acceptance the match was official!
Quote:
A video played on Impact Wrestling Future Star Cup participant…..


….BRODY KING! The video focused on the hardcore wrestling style of Brody King as well as his other love as the lead singer of his hardcore metal band.
Quote:
Match 5: Brody King vs. Vikas Kumar

Thoughts on the Match: This was simply a showcase for Brody King, the first of eight showcase matches for the competitors in the Future Star Cup before the actual tournament began.

Result: In a bout that had terrible wrestling and non-existent crowd heat, Brody King defeated Vikas Kumar in 3:01 by pinfall with a Gonzo Bomb.
Grade: D-
Quote:
Johnny Impact was making his entrance for the Main Event…..when he was attacked from behind with Eddie Edwards getting a shot in the back of the leg with the kendo stick and dropping “The Survivor” right away! While medic’s came to check on Impact there was a commercial break.
Quote:
Impact was in the ring saying he was ready to wrestle, even though Hulk Hogan and the medic’s were trying to take him out of it. The video shot to the back where a limo was sitting, and the door opened and a beautiful pair of legs were shown exiting from the limo. Back to the ring Impact was back on his feet, but clearly in pain, and calling for his opponent when some familiar music began to play…


….and out walked Brandi Rhodes…….


…..AND then….


……THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE CODY!
Quote:
Match 6: Bound For Glory Series Quarter-Final: Cody vs. “The Survivor” Johnny Impact

Thoughts on the Match: Code was wearing the NWA World Championship belt as Moore and Callis made sure to put over the All In event. The story of the match was of course Cody taking advantage of the injured Impact, but that is not to say that Johnny did not put on a fight desperate to advance in the BFG Series. In the end Impact almost managed to get the victory after connecting with a Starship Pain, but the force of the bounce off of the ring ropes actually caused Impact to roll around holding his knee in pain. It allowed Cody to recover and connect with Cross Rhodes! But Johnny kicked out!! Next Cody went for a Figure Four with the sore knee as the target and eventually Johnny had no choice but to submit and give the surprising Cody a spot in the final four!

Result: In a bout that had great heat and good wrestling, Cody defeated "The Survivor" Johnny Impact in 16:55 by submission.

Grade: B
Overall Show Rating: B

Alicia Atout was with Rich Swann who was trying to talk about his match tonight when he was interrupted by Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley with Lee still blaming Swann for their loss in the World X Cup and predicting another loss for Swann tonight. He left with Swann fuming, but then trying to brush it off with a trademark smile.

September 20, 2018:

Walking into the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena and running into the latest call ups was a bit fortuitous, but I could not wait to see what these 'bros' could do tonight.....
Quote:
Match 1: Cody/Eli Drake vs. Fénix/Rey Mysterio Jr

Thoughts on the Match: In a preview of the semi-finals of the Bound For Glory Series these four stars started the show off with a lot of quick tag’s, with Fénix getting a lot of great moves in. It did not turn out to be enough as Drake managed to overpower Fénix and put him away with a Bottom Rung.

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Cody and Eli Drake defeated Fénix and Rey Mysterio Jr. in 11:09 when Eli Drake defeated Fénix by pinfall with a Bottom Rung.

Grade: B-
Quote:

After the commercial a video played reminding fans of the finish of the World Title match from Destination X when Cage took a fall from the set and had not been heard from since.
Quote:
Match 2: CIMA vs. Will Ospreay

Thoughts on the Match: High flying ,but also technical, as this match went back and forth with the World X Cup winner Will Ospreay taking the victory.

Result: In a bout that had good wrestling but didn't have much heat, Will Ospreay defeated CIMA in 7:23 by pinfall with a 630° Splash.

Grade: B-
Quote:
Alicia Atout caught up with Will Ospreay to ask him about his success since the World X Cup and they were interrupted by Rob Van Dam who said he had always been impressed with Will and asked if he wanted to be his opponent for Victory Road in a bit of a past vs. the future sort of match. Ospreay was speechless and honored and shook hands with RVD after agreeing to the match.
Quote:
Another video played with Albert Carter Jr this time as he is with a tailor getting a suit getting measured out. The video focused on AC Jr’s face as he spoke about his life growing up in a broken family, he had felt isolated but he also was determined to live his dream of becoming the best wrestler in the world.
Quote:
Z & E were standing in the ring waiting for their opponents for the Open Challenge, when familiar music played and out walked….


….JEFF JARRETT!! With a microphone Jarrett spoke about how he had been known as the ‘Chosen One’ and he had held many, many world titles, but now he had searched the world and found a ‘Chosen 2’ who were here to win the Tag Team titles…..


…….JEFF COBB AND MATT RIDDLE!
Quote:
Match 3: Impact World Tag Team Championship: Z & E© vs. The Chosen 2 (Jeff Cobb/Matt Riddle)

Thoughts on the Match: The fans were quickly introduced to the style of Jeff Cobb and Matt Riddle who went toe to toe against the reigning World Tag Team Champions. Jeff Cobb used his strength to toss both Everett and Ion around, while Matt Riddle took them both to the ground. Cobb caught Andrew Everett out of the sky when he went for a Toe Touch Moonsault, and then reversed it into a Tour of the Island and picked up the surprise three count, and new tag team Champions!

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Chosen 2 defeated Z & E in 8:11 when Jeff Cobb defeated Andrew Everett by pinfall with a Tour of the Island. Chosen 2 become NEW Impact World Tag Team titles.

Quote:
Matt Sydal sat cross-legged with the X-Division title in front of him and he was speaking about how with his third eye he had seen karma coming for Paul London after he had broken the ribs of YANG. He continued going on until Paul London actually made his way down to the ring, but just as he was about to get into the ring he was attacked by…..the Masked Success! Of course, fans remembered that under the mask was none other then Mike Sydal, Matt’s brother. The two Sydal’s worked over London, before Matt Sydal nailed him in the head with the title belt. While the Masked Success held London pinned to the mat, Matt Sydal went to the turnbuckle and connected with a Shooting Star Press…and then another! Before he could go for a third they were broken up by security and forced to retreat to the back while medic’s checked on the fallen London.
Quote:
A video played showing footage of Chris Brookes and Travis Banks in action before they introduced themselves as the Commonwealth Grapple Kings, and then beneath it showed #CGK.
Quote:
Match 4: Moose vs. Trevor Murdock

Thoughts on the Match: This entire match was set up to make Moose look good, and with that said he used power moves that looked that much more impressive on the bigger Trevor Murdock, especially TheGameBreaker that ended the match.

Result: In an extremely short match, Moose defeated Trevor Murdock in 3:09 by pinfall with a TheGameBreaker.

Grade: C-
Quote:
A fired up Moose got on the microphone after the match and asked if the fans had forgot about him…..because he had not forgot about them. And he sure hoped that Hulk Hogan and the rest of the match makers in the back had not forgot about him because Mr Impact Wrestling would do whatever it took to get back into title contention.
Quote:
A video showed highlights of “Dirty” Dick Mayer, the next competitor from the Future Star Cup that was getting showcased tonight. Most of the video was Mayer talking, showing little respect for his competitors in the Future Star Cup.
Quote:
Match 5: “Dirty” Dick Mayer vs. Zachary Wentz

Thoughts on the Match: Moore and Callis made sure to let the fans know that Zachary Wentz was not a part of the Future Star Cup, but was a new part of the roster. Mayer showed exactly what sort of wrestler he was as he attacked Wentz before the bell could ring, and that allowed for Mayer to get the victory rather quickly.

Result: In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, "Dirty" Dick Mayer defeated Zachary Wentz in 2:31 by pinfall with a Flying Headbutt.

Grade: D
Quote:
Another video similar to the last few weeks but this time with these words: “more crafty than any beast of the field,” and “the serpent deceived me” before ending with two fading snake eyes.
Quote:
Match 6: Abyss/Kongo Kong vs. LAX

Thoughts on the Match: This match did not even get a chance to get off the ground as Homicide and Hernandez ran through the crowd and attacked LAX, while oVe made their presence known as well. While the brawl was going on, Konnan watched on as Homicide laid Ortiz out on a table outside of the ring, while Hernandez sent Santana over the top rope and down through the table with a Border Toss.

Result: In an extremely short match, Latin American Xchange drew with Abyss and Kongo Kong in 3:23 when the match descended into chaos after Hernandez, Homicide, Sami Callihan, Jake Crist and Dave Crist all became involved.

Match 7: Impact Undisputed World Championship: Pentagon Jr© vs. Jake Hager

Thoughts on the Match: It was expected that this would be a good match, but this turned out to be a great match, much, much better then could have been expected. Back and forth they went, with the intensity of the match amping up with each passing moment as Hager was desperate to win the title, but Pentagon Jr was just as determined to not lose the title belt. After a series of Patriot Locks were not enough to get a submission victory, he attempted to hit a Pump Handle Splash but Pentagon Jr moved out of the way and as Hager crashed to the mat Pentagon Jr got his arm and pulled him to the middle of the ring where he locked in an Inverted Armbreaker. Looking out towards the fans who were rising to their feet, Pentagon Jr snapped backwards and broke Hager’s arm!! The referee had no choice but to call for the bell and award the victory to Pentagon Jr after that!

Result: In a bout that had superb wrestling and good heat, Pentagon Jr. defeated Jake Hager in 16:59 when Pentagon Jr. broke the arm of Jake Hager. Pentagon Jr. makes defence number 6 of his Impact Undisputed World title.

Grade: B+
Quote:
After the match while Pentagon Jr was celebrating, he was attacked by Austin Aries and dropped with a Brainbuster. But Aries wasn’t done as he slipped out of the ring….and grabbed a ladder. Sliding into the ring he drove the ladder into the face of Pentagon Jr before picking him up and dropping him with a modified Brainbuster on the closed ladder. Climbing up on the top turnbuckle Aries grabbed a microphone and announced that the title match at Victory Road would be a ladder match….before nailing a 450 Splash on the downed Champion on the ladder!
Overall Show Grade: B+

After the defeat an angry Trevor Lee rolled out of the ring and went after Rich Swann who had come down near the end of the match to watch. The two were brawling when Caleb Konley came out and attacked Swann making it a 2 on 1 until security broke things up.

September 27, 2018

With one show to go before Victory Road, I wanted to be with the crew for the final preparations so I made my way to the Ralston Arena in Ralston, Nebraska. After a couple of surprise tag teams debuting in the last month it is time to settle things down a bit on the way to Bound For Glory...
Quote:
Match 1: Bound For Glory Series Semi-Final: Cody vs. Fénix

Thoughts on the Match: One of the biggest matches to open Impact Wrestling saw the traditional wrestling style of Cody against the fast-paced action of Fénix. Even though Cody was accompanied by Brandi she was not involved in the match, and in fact it was a rather open match up until the end when Cody went for the Cross Rhodes and Fénix reversed it into a pinfall attempt that Cody reversed into one of his own, and then used the ropes for the leverage required to get the three count to send Cody to the Finals at Victory Road.

Result: In a good match, Cody defeated Fénix in 16:26 by pinfall while using the ropes for leverage.

Grade: B-
Quote:
After the match Rob Moore and Don Callis spoke about the Main Event that would see Rey Mysterio Jr and Eli Drake battling to see who would face Cody on Sunday at Victory Road.
Quote:
A video played highlighting the Chosen 2, with the announcement that Z & E would be getting a title rematch against Chosen 2 at Victory Road.
Quote:
Match 2: #CGK vs. Kid Lykos/Robbie Solar

Thoughts on the Match: This was a bit of an Easter egg for dedicated wrestling fans with Brooks and Banks facing off against their friend and partner Kid Lykos, as well as Robie Solar. Even though it was a short match, it was a fun match with the history there and lots of quick moves before Brookes managed to take Solar (interesting?) out with a Yakuza kick.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, #CGK defeated Robbie Solar and Kid Lykos in 4:37 when Chris Brookes defeated Robbie Solar by pinfall with a Yakuza Kick.

Grade: C-
Quote:
The Commonwealth Grapple Kings did not get to celebrate for very long as Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin came out to speak on the microphone’s with some humorous jabs at #CGK, before getting more serious and promising they weren’t going away anytime soon.
Quote:
A video played on the feud between oVe and Jimmy Jacobs and his Monstourage with the announcement of a Hardcore match between Callihan and Jacobs at Victory Road.
Quote:
Match 3: Allie/Serena Deeb vs. 4ever

Thoughts on the Match: A warm up match for Victory Road saw the team of 4ever and Allie and Sereena Deeb fighting hard against each other to pick up the victory, and sadly the victory for 4ever was not clean as it came after a distraction from the Undead Bridesmaid that left Allie open for a Piledriver that ended the match.

Result: In an extremely short match, Tessa Blanchard and Melissa Anderson defeated Allie and Serena Deeb in 5:21 when Tessa Blanchard defeated Allie by pinfall with a Piledriver after a distraction from Undead Bridesmaid.

Grade: C-
Quote:
After the match Allie and Deeb left the ring to go after the Undead Bridesmaid, while Rachael Ellering joined her stablemates in the ring while Tessa got on the microphone to remind the fans about the dominance of 4ever and how this weekend it would be ‘eye for eye, tooth for tooth, arm for arm….or maybe arm for knee.’
Quote:
Another ominous video, with snake eyes, finishing with the words ‘next week.’
Quote:
Match 4: Miro Daye vs. Trevor Murdock

Thoughts on the Match: After recovering from a slight injury, Miro Daye came out like a house on fire tossing Murdock with a Suplex, before focusing on trying to injure the back to set up for his finishing submission move. Murdock desperately fought back and managed to avoid it, but still did eat the three count after Daye hit the move that used to be called the BulPlex.

Result: In a decent match, Miro Daye defeated Trevor Murdock in 5:52 by pinfall with a BulPlex.

Grade: C+
Quote:
After the match “Bare Knuckles” Stu Bennett made his way out with some bad news for Miro Daye, a match with him at Victory Road where Bennet would once again expose his weaknesses to the fans.
Quote:
A Future Star Cup video on Fred Yehi focusing on his diverse out of wrestling pursuits as a youth counselor and work with video.
Quote:
Match 5: Buddy Royal vs. Fred Yehi

Thoughts on the Match: Buddy Royal has some technical abilities and attempted to out wrestle Fred Yehi, but Fred is not slouch himself and he managed to pick up the victory with the use of a Koji Clutch proving himself the master of the mat in this match.

Result: In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Fred Yehi defeated Buddy Royal in 3:15 by submission with a Koji Clutch.

Grade: D+
Quote:
Up next a video response from Taya to Su Yung last time….in the form of a Viking Funeral! Taya set an effigy of Su Yung on fire, and told her she would not be intimidated come Sunday and she would be winning the Knockout’s Championship!
Quote:
Backstage footage from last week saw Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley running into “Dirty” Dick Mayer and making acquaintances, before walking away from the camera.
Quote:
Match 6: Aero Star/Caristico/Drago/Rich Swann vs. Caleb Konley/”Dirty” Dick Mayer/El Hijo del Fantasma/Trevor Lee

Thoughts on the Match: Tags were loosely adhered to in this match as it was just none stop action that saw Caristico pick up the victory over Caleb Konley, further serving to anger El Hijo del Fantasma who could be heard complaining about how everyone fails him.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Rich Swann, Caristico, Aero Star and Drago defeated El Hijo del Fantasma, "Dirty" Dick Mayer, Trevor Lee and Caleb Konley in 5:52 when Caristico defeated Caleb Konley by pinfall with a La Mística.

Grade: C
Quote:
A video was sent in from Johnny Impact where Johnny said the medic’s would clear him for a match at Victory Road, but if Edwards had the balls he could show up outside the building and injured or not, Impact was going to take him to Slamtown.
Quote:
Match 7: Extreme Tiger & Laredo Kid vs. Street Royalty

Thoughts on the Match: This match was mostly just about the story being told between three teams, but did see Willie Prince get an opportunity to shine prior to ending the match for his team.

Result: In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Street Royalty defeated Extreme Tiger & Laredo Kid in 2:47 when Willie Prince defeated Laredo Kid by pinfall with a Chocolate Thunder Bomb.

Grade: C
Quote:
After the match King got on the microphone and promised that he was not surprised to see the OGz slip into the arena last week; Konnan probably just let them in. Street Royalty was not going to get stabbed in the back, but LAX sure was.
Quote:
Matt Sydal was in the ring with the Masked Success wrestler with him, getting read for a tag team match against Paul London. London showed up on the screen though and said that there wasn’t going to be a tag team match, because Matt’s partner had suffered an injury. The camera panned out to show Mike Sydal unmasked and laid out backstage. In the ring Matt Sydal was confused….until the Masked Success attacked him!! Down with Sydal, and the Masked Success came off of the top rope with a Shooting Star Press, before pulling off the mask….it was Paul London!
Quote:
A video played comparing Rob Van Dam and Will Ospreay with interspersed clips of them hitting amazing moves prior to their match at Victory Road.
Quote:
Match 8: Bound For Glory Series Semi-Final:

Thoughts on the Match: After an evening with a lot of great high flying, this was a bit of a different style of a match similar to something you might find in WWE as these two made sure to slow the pace down and play to the fans. The finish of the match saw Eli Drake try and set up for a Bottom Rung, but Rey reversed and set Eli Drake into the ropes setting him up for a 619 and a pin fall that would see Cody and Rey face off at Victory Road!

Result: In a decent match, Rey Mysterio Jr defeated Eli Drake in 12:50 by pinfall with a 619.

Grade: C+
Quote:
After the final commercial break, Austin Aries was seen….sitting on top of a steel ladder. Aries spoke about how this has all been one long journey, rung by rung, up the ladder towards success and regaining the World Championship. As Aries continued to talk, he was interrupted by a video of the World Champion Pentagon Jr who spoke for a bit, and then as he went to do his Cero Miedo move the lights went out…and then they came back on Pentagon Jr was on the ladder! He attacked Aries and tossed him off of the ladder to the ring mat below, and then followed him down before trying to toss him into the ladder, but Aries reversed and sent Pentagon into the ladder instead. A Brainbuster later and Aries was left standing over the Champion with the belt in his hands as the show came to an end!
Overall Show Grade: B

Quote:
X-Plosion Tapings:

The show started off with a recap of Cody and Rey Mysterio advancing to the Finals of the Bound For Glory Series.

Footage from the backstage on Thursday night aired with Moose making a challenge for the World Championship after Victory Road and being interrupted by an angry Fénix after his tainted loss to Cody saying that he was the one deserving another shot, and the two looked ready to come to blows, before Global Ambassador Hulk Hogan interrupted and said that he would think things over and let them know at the Victory Road Pre-Show.

PPV Pre-Show:

The show opens with a video hyping the Ladder World title match between Austin Aries and Pentagon Jr.

After a commercial break there was hype for the Knockout titles match between Su Yung/Taya as well as the tag team match between 4ever and Kelly Klein/Tenille Dashwood.

BCW Showcase Match: In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Doug Williams and Fred Yehi defeated Petey Williams and Kevin Matthews in 7:45 when Fred Yehi defeated Kevin Matthews by submission with a Koji Clutch. (C)

Andrew Everett and Zema Ion had some final words prior to their tag team title match against the Chosen 2.

In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Kim 'The Viper' Benson defeated Ashley Vox in 3:07 by pinfall with a Michinoku Driver. (D+)

A video played for the next Future Star Cup competitor, the music may sound familiar to fans of Miami Vice, before focusing on someone tapping their neon high top sneakers, before pulling out to see a man in a bright track suit with bright colors, with the word “Pretty Boy” scrolled across in cursive. Finally the music stopped and the person spun around……it was Zach Sabre Jr!

In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and non-existent crowd heat, Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Mohammad Ali Vaez in 3:02 by submission with a Jim Breaks Armbar. (C-)

A barely safe for TV video aired showing the violence between LAX, The OGz, and Street Royalty played with a central theme of Konnan’s loyalty throughout

A final video played hyping the match between Sami Callihan and Jimmy Jacobs played.

In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Allie defeated Undead Bridesmaid in 8:22 by pinfall with a Sitout Facebuster. (C-)

Fenix and Moose were out with Hulk Hogan, with both men demanding a shot to prove they were worthy of a shot at the World Championship. Before Hogan could answer them they were interrupted by Eli Drake who came out demanding his own shot, finally an irritated Hulk Hogan put the three men in a match at Victory Road with the winner getting a shot at the World Championship.
