Who’s ready to find out what happened previously on Impact? Eric Young gave an invite to Cousin Jake, Sami picking a fight with Trey Miguel, and Dreamer teamed up with Swann to lose to Moose and Bey.
JOSH ALEXANDER, WILLIE MACK, TREY MIGUEL & SUICIDE VS. BLAKE CHRISTIAN, CHRIS BEY, ACE AUSTIN & DAIVARI – TRIPLE THREAT REVOLVER PREVIEW EIGHT MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
So this is previewing a new match that is kind of interesting that will happen at No Surrender. These eight men will be at ringside but three men will start in the ring and as someone is eliminated another from the out will enter the match until only one winner.
When did Impact start using the tag rope? Love that they actually have three tag ropes in each corner so they all can hold on to one.
Love that Blake Christian tagged himself in to Ace Austin after Ace Austin cockingly did the same thing earlier.
Really interested in the booking of Trey Miguel after last week’s confrontation with Sami.
Trey had Blake Christian in a variation of the Muta Lock but was Vertical instead of Horizontal. Muta Lock is one of my favourite moves.
Blake Christian and Ace Austin argue after Christian had to rescue Ace from a submission.
What is the point of the tag ropes if guys are just coming in as they wish? Tolle is still doing a lot better than Sinclair did on ROH last night.
Trey Miguel and Blake Christian seem to have the most spots in the match so it is fitting that it is Trey Miguel getting a submission victory on Christian.
MATCH TIME: 11:59
Post match, Josh Alexander is looking at the intense Trey Miguel with curiosity.
With the faces in the ring, Sami hacks in to cut a promo on the screen on Sami Callihan. Sami asks when is he going to do the eventual flaking out that everyone knows he is going to do.
Birthday wishes from the locker room for Tommy Dreamer who turns 50 on Saturday.
ODB VS. KIMBER LEE W/ SUSAN & DEONNA PURRAZZO
Who would love to see ODB get a gimmick change by having her join her former tag team partner, Eric Young, in Violent By Design?
Stupid spot to start with Kimber Lee pretending to push her breasts up and do the running push like ODB. Has no impact and ODB does it to send Kimber flying.
Kimber Lee is able to block to dirty dozen and send ODB to the mat but only gets a one count on the pinfall.
Back from a commercial break with ODB in full control but not able to get a pinfall as Kimber Lee still able to kick out before the three.
ODB finally hits her Dirty Dozen and and chest press but still a two count.
Susan and Deonna get on the ring leading to Jazz and Jordynne coming out to even the odds.
How many times did Jazz and Jordynne throw Susan and Deonna into the side of the ring?
Kimber Lee rolls up ODB as she comes back in the ring and gets the pinfall victory.
MATCH TIME: 12:25
Post match, the heels are walking to the back victorious.
Backstage to Swinger’s Palace with Fallah Bahh out of money to bet. Money only, says Swinger, so Fallah Bahh has to leave after being rejected for a loan.
Bravo was pure evil taking the cookie from Fallah Bahh before he leaves and Swinger hits on Alisha not realizing she is married.
Backstage, Deonna, Kimber Lee and Susan are talking about the chaos out there with Susan not liking it in true Karen fashion. Susan says she is going to talk to their manager as she wants a six person tag match at No Surrender.
Cousin Jake’s music hits and he comes out to give his answer to Eric Young about joining Violent By Design.
Before Jake can give his answer the music hits and Violent by Design come out.
Eric Young says there is only one answer here and tells Jake to be the real Jake. Jake starts taking his jacket off while holding the yellow towel. He throws the jacket down.
Jake says If you stand for nothing you will fall for anything and Jake stands for something and he attacks Cody and and the fight is on.
Cody tells them not to stomp on the chair and says he wants to finish it leading to EY making the match for No Surrender between Cody and Jake.
Rohit Raju is cutting a promo backstage with Sheera behind him. Raju calls him his monster like Manik is TJP’s monster.
Rohit says he is going to become a two time champion at No Surrender.
TK and Tony at the home of Dynamite doing the paid ad talking about the Forbidden Door being open with NJPW coming. He said he apparently was the door and being in Impact opened him up.
TK thanks Kenny Omega and Don Callis for opening things up and says he will be back on Impact sooner rater than later.
Good Brothers are now cutting a promo about James Storm and Chris Sabin to push the match tonight in the Main Event, or I assume what will be the main event.
KIERA HOGAN W/ TASHA STEELZ VS. NEVAEH W/ HAVOK
Nevaeh has been around in Impact for months now and we are just now hearing someone tell us that her name his Heaven backwards?
A few miscommunication spots in this one and they were very obvious ones too.
Tasha gets up on the apron but Tolle goes out to stop Havok from coming over but actually sees Tasha hit a codebreaker on Nevaeh who gets the DQ win because of it.
MATCH TIME: 6:48
Post match, Fire N Flava once again protest but seriously, how does Brandon Tolle get all the Fire N Flava matches?
More birthday wishes from Dreamer with it being AEW locker room members sending their greetings.
Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz are in Scott D’Amore’s office complaining about Brandon Tolle being the ref for their matches.
Scott says they have a valid point and Tolle won’t be their referee on Saturday in their tag team title match against Havok and Nevaeh in a NO DQ match.
In the ring with XXXL, Kaleb with a K and Tenille Dashwood cutting a promo about this Saturday with Tenille being the one who will put her hands on Rosemary since they won’t.
Tenille mentions that their team has them outnumbered and at No Surrender is stupid enough to team with Decay.
Kaleb with a K is sad he won’t be in the ring on Saturday so challenges either member of Decay to fight him now.
KALEB WITH A K W/ TENILLE DASHWOOD, LARRY D & ACEY ROMERO VS. BLACK TAURUS W/ ROSEMARY & CRAZZY STEVE
Rosemary says the shadow has many dark creatures to join them and their new member is Black Taurus from AAA.
Black Taurus makes Luchasaurus look like a child party performer.
Taurus hits a massive Samoan Drop and gets the easy pinfall victory.
MATCH TIME: 0:57
Post match, Acey and Larry D are not looking confident after what they just saw.
Backstage, Brian Myers is showing his negotiating skills with Hernandez backstage. Fallah Bahh sees the money in Hernandez’s hand. Here we go again.
JAMES STORM & CHRIS SABIN VS. THE GOOD BROTHERS (DOC GALLOWS & KARL ANDERSON) – IMPACT WRESTLING TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Good Brothers act like every High School Hockey Player that never amounted to anything more than Manager at the Home Depot.
Good work from Matt Striker to explain away the miscommunication with Storm and Sabin unsure how to position for the move.
How long before D’Lo Brown talks about his history with Gallows in Ace & Eights?
Matt Hardy and Private Party have arrived on the stage to watch the match close up. Gallows distracted but put his hand up to absorb the kick from Sabin way too soon.
Private Party got in the ring and touched the pinfall to cause the DQ so that Good Brothers wouldn’t lose the tag belts.
MATCH TIME: 12:09
Backstage, Matt Hardy and Private Party talking about taking care of those that got in the way. Scott shows up to let Matt know things aren’t going to be as they planned because he is putting Storm & Sabin into the match on Saturday.
Contract signing time for Rich Swann and Tommy Dreamer with both already sitting at the table in the ring.
Rich Swann gets to sign first as it was his idea to have the match.
Dreamer was never given the chance to give his answer to the offer. Dreamer says there are others more deserving but he is going to seize it.
Without much of a surprise, Moose’s music hits once Tommy is done talking and he comes out. He says he rarely gets angry but this match taking place is pissing him off.
Moose says that Swann is basically taking a night off instead of wrestling him. Scott tells Moose that if he gets involved in this he will get suspended.
Moose says he could beat both of them and has no reason to interfere.
Dreamer tells them both to shut up and tells Moose needed Dreamer to light that fire to keep his job.
The Crowd noise during Dreamer cutting a passionate promo was not appropriate.
Dreamer signs the contract and will leave the ring united with him when they are done. Moose leaves the ring but doesn’t take his eyes off either.
