IMPACT WRESTLING SOUNDOFF – APRIL 29, 2021

This week we have the Fallout from Rebellion, an In-ring celebration for new IMPACT World Champion Kenny Omega, Taylor Wilde vs Kimber Lee, W. Morrissey making his IMPACT! debut, Josh Alexander vs Ace Austin for the X-Division Championship and more.

Seeing our obligatory recap highlight video for Rebellion.
Now everyone is outside Scott’s office wanting a shot but he sends them to the ring as he is going to address.
Don Callis comes out after everyone has left and Scott tells Don that Kenny can’t Zoom in and has to be there in person as per the contract. If he is not, he will stripped of the title and suspended from both companies.

Now in the ring with Scott D’Amore there surrounded by the roster.
We are told that there was no rematch clause so to determine the next contender for Kenny there will be a 6 way at Under Siege. If Kenny doesn’t show by the end of the night the match will be a title match.
We will have 6 matches over the next two weeks to determine the 6 in the match.
Scott says no time like the present so he calls up Jake Something and puts him over.

JAKE SOMETHING VS. CHRIS BEY – UNDER SEIGE QUALIFICATION MATCH
Chris Bey makes his return to be the opponent. Chris in full HBK homage gear.
Really liking this match up with their differences blending well together so far.
Nice crossbody off the turnbuckles by Chris Bey on Jake Something. Looked like he was floating for a second.
Jake Something and Bey go back and forth but Jake gets the better of it hitting the sit out power bomb.
I do like that everyone has stayed at ringside for this match. They really should have roster members in the audience area like AEW.
Rohit Raju grabs the leg to distract Jake Something allowing Bey to hit a drop kick to the back and roll up Something for the pinfall victory using the ropes to make it to the 6 way.

Tenille is trying to get her to be a partner but Taylor says she came back for the singles title.
Taylor is having none of it but Tenille and Kaleb are delusional and think they’re a team now.

SAM BEALE VS. W. MORRISSEY
Morrissey gets a microphone saying we may recognize him but we don’t know them. No one there loves the fans and the industry is full of bad people.

Like that we are seeing the rematch exercised within days so we can move on for Under Siege if Ace and Josh is not the feud we are going with.
Great selling with the facial expression by Ace Austin after the back breaker from Josh Alexander.
Nice touch to have Josh block the Elbows to the head allowing Austin to hit elbows to the midsection.

Austin blocks the Divine Intervention and hits a sick knee but Alexander still locks on the Ankle Lock but Ace is able to fight it off.

Weird looking spot with Austin hitting a move on to the knees of Alexander. Doesn’t look like that was meant to happen.
