Love hearing Mauro during the recap video. We need him for more major events.
BRIAN MYERS VS. BLACK TAURUS W/ ROSEMARY & CRAZZY STEVE
I like that Steve and Rosemary almost act like Black Taurus is their pet.
Does anyone else wish that this story between Myers and Decay would lead to Myers joining Decay and changing his gimmick up?
Really weird to see how fast and agile Black Taurus is in the ring for a guy his size.
Myers draws Taurus to the outside after sucker punching Steve and sends Taurus into the barricade to get the advantage.
Beautiful spot th Taurus able to run up to the top turnbuckle and hit a crossbody on Myers to regain the advantage.
Sick, sick crucifix bomb from Black Taurus on Myers out of nowhere.
Flatliner from Myers but only able to get a two count on the pinfall attempt.
Thumb to the Eye and a Roster Cut from Brian Myers gets the pinfall victory over Taurus.
SUSAN & KIMBER LEE VS. TAYLOR WILDE & TENILLE DASHWOOD W/ KALEB WITH A K
Is Kaleb with a K going to wear the neck brace as long as Bobby Heenan once did?
I have to agree with D’Lo Brown that Taylor has come back looking like she hasn’t missed a step. She really knows her character.
Did Matt Striker just reference Van Hammer on commentary?
Has Tenille and Kaleb ever looked more excited about a partner for Tenille as they have so far with Taylor?
Tenille comes in for the save but is sent into the turnbuckle making Taylor fall but Susan can’t get the pinfall.
Taylor gets the pinfall victory after Kaleb is able to get a kick in to Susan’s face without anyone seeing.
Post match, Taylor is not up for the picture taking with Tenille.
Sami Callihan hacks in to cut a promo on the main event and Kenny Omega. Says he doesn’t care who he has to go through he will get to Kenny so he can get his world title back.
ACE AUSTIN & MADMAN FULTON VS. TJP & PETEY WILLIAMS VS. XXXL (LARRY D & ACEY ROMERO) VS. ROHIT RAJU & SHERA – IMPACT TAG TEAM TITLE #1 CONTENDERS FATAL FOUR WAY MATCH
Funny that the only team in the match with an actual team name are the one team I don’t see having a chance to win this one.
As someone who is a Canadian who is married to a Filipino, nothing brings me joy then Petey and TJP together as a tag team.
Wasting no time as Brandon Tolle can’t keep them apart and just lets them all fight to start the match.
Love seeing Petey go old school with his foot to the groin during the tree of woe. Even better is seeing TJP lock on the Muta Lock right after.
Shera doesn’t even look like the same guy as the one who was a clean dancing babyface years ago. Remember when he was in that stable with TJP and James Storm?
Nice to get to see Fulton officially in a match for once instead of nothing but the bodyguard for Ace Austin.
Liked the spot with TJP looking for a hot tag and moving toward XXXL and shrugs that off and moves over to tag in Petey. Nice booking.
What a slap from Acey Romero on Shera that literally made Shera crumble to the outside.
Poor Rohit Raju getting squashed, literally, by Larry D and Acey Romero in a sandwich.
Ace Austin picks up the pinfall victory on Larry D but not ntil after Madman Fulton gets a busted open mouth.
Fire N Flava are being interviewed about their rematch for the knockouts tag team titles tonight. Like Kiera is in Blue and Tasha is in Red. Fits their team so well.
W. MORRISSEY VS. WILLIE MACK
Why don’t guys like Morrissey, Hernandez, and Cena get sponsorships from an underwear brand? If they’re going to insist on showing us the brand, might as well get paid for it.
Mack is coming out with fire and giving Morrissey a beating to start but Morrissey still able to look strong.
Willie Mack looked back into the inside of his skull after a boot from Morrissey sends him to the floor.
Great selling by Willie Mack as Morrissey elbow dropped the back of Willie’s neck. The shaking can be a great touch when not overdone.
It is all Morrissey destroying Mack setting up Mack making the big comeback. It takes three clotheslines, a spinning kick, a splash, side kick and a flying clothesline to get Morrissey down.
Matt Striker actually said you can’t teach that on commentary in regard to Morrissey.
Sick boot to the back of Willie Mack’s head allows Morrissey to get the pinfall victory.
Post-match, Morrissey beats down Mack a little further before going for a chair instead of leaving.
Rich Swann comes out to make the save and send Morrissey packing. Good but a little predictable.
FIRE N FLAVA (TASHA STEELZ & KIERA HOGAN) VS. RACHAEL ELLERING & JORDYNNE GRACE – KNOCKOUTS TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Fire N Flava jump the champs to start the match but Ellering and Grace over power them.
Nice show of power by Jordynne Grace tossing Kiera Hogan around the ring.
Really like how Kiera and Rachael did the preventing a tag spot. Didn’t feel like one I’ve seen before even if it is the same type of spot that has been done a million times before.
Hot tag in and Jordynne Grace takes it to Fire N Flava with Tasha taking the brunt of it.
Great selling by Jordynne Grace after the spinning DDT counter by Kiera Hogan.
Rachael pulls down Kiera who was holding Grace which causes Grace to fall down over the rope. Playing up the miscommunication between Rachael and Grace.
Down Low from Tasha Steelz on Jordynne Grace to get the pinfall victory to become two time Knockouts Tag Team Champions.
Swinger’s Palace time with some nobody at the table when XXXL came in and made a shot at Diamond carrying Swinger and they get the boot. Swinger calls them the Natural Disasters.
EL PHANTASMO VS. JOSH ALEXANDER – X DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
ELP is not to sure what to make of Josh Alexander to start as he asks “What the Hell was that?” at one point.
Phantasmo drops to the mat and goes to the outside when Alexander goes for his Double Underhook Piledriver.
Phantasmo goes dirty and gives a boot to the ankle of Alexander causing Josh to fall back holding the ankle.
ELP does the same stomp to the groin as Petey did earlier than after does his own “One More Time” chant before going for it a second time. Loving his character.
Great heel work from Phantasmo by holding down the fingers off Alexander minus the Middle One leading to Tolle getting flipped off.
Did ELP seriously try to give Alexander a Purple Nurple? What ever it was, Alexander did not like it and got fired up.
Airplane Spin into the Cutter by Phantasmo on Alexander but only gets a two count.
Sick suplex from Josh Alexander on Phantasmo looking like it almost folded ELP in half.
Huge Rana off the top by Alexander followed by a Splash going across over half the ring but only a two count as Josh can still kick out.
Massive powerbomb to the knee by Alexander before locking in the Ankle Lock to finally get the submission victory in a great match.
FinJuice and Eddie Edwards are being interviewed with Eddie putting FinJuice over saying they came here showing respect unlike Kenny Omega.
HAVOK VS. DEONNA PURRAZZO W/ KIMBER LEE & SUSAN – KNOCKOUTS CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Kimber Lee was able to get changed pretty quick as she is in a dress now while Susan is still wearing the same outfit as earlier.
Deonna not showing any fear towards Havok to start but she isn’t able to show much for long as Havok is able to overpower Deonna.
Deonna finally able to get a shot in on the left arm of Havok and that is her focus going forward.
Deonna makes it to the bottom rope to break the Boston Crab from Havok.
Susan and Kimber Lee once again take shots from Havok allowing Deonna to regain the advantage on Havok.
Deonna finally gets the Queen’s Gambit on and get the submission with ease after working over that arm all match.
EDDIE EDWARDS & FINJUICE (DAVID FINLAY & JUICE ROBINSON) VS. THE GOOD BROTHERS (DOC GALLOWS & KARL ANDERSON) & KENNY OMEGA W/ DON CALLIS
They REALLY need to get that one plate fixed on the TNA World Championship because it looks so bad.
We got Karl Anderson and David Finlay starting the match to call on the match that happened on Impact this week.
Do you think Good Brothers are better as Seconds to Omega or were they better doing it for AJ?
They really seem to have booked this one to make all three look equal while making the Brothers and Kenny look like douche heels.
Always terrible when you notice the referee see the heel interference and turn away to look at someone else. Something that pretty much every referee in wrestling is guilty of.
Eddie gets the Hot Tag and takes it to Kenny Omega. Say what you want but Kenny is doing well of making people look good even in defeat in his Impact matches.
Not really sure how I feel about that Three Person splash that Brothers and Kenny do.
Boston Knee Party by Eddie Edwards on Karl Anderson to get the pinfall victory which does not make Kenny Omega happy.
CHRIS BEY VS. MOOSE VS. CHRIS SABIN VS. MATT CARDONA VS. SAMI CALLIHAN VS. TREY MIGUEL – 6 WAY SCRAMBLE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP #1 CONTENDERS MATCH
This is one fall to a victory and not elimination so it will take some time to beat down everyone enough for us to get a finish.
Moose calls on the other five to basically bring it and he takes them all on and it takes two of them at once, Sabin and Bey, to finally bring him down.
Nice stereo Tope’s over the top to the four on the outside. Really like what the mix of wrestlers in this match is giving us.
The Speed from Moose is insane. Loved seeing him get to the top to hit the Superplex. Was topped off by Bey hitting the splash on him after hitting the Superplex on Trey.
Why did it take this long for anyone, especially Sami, to bring a weapon into the match.
Has Cardona done much in this match? He just came in which made me remember that he was actually in the match.
We get everyone hitting their finishers, except for Sami who just low blows Cardona but he isn’t able to do anything as the Good Brothers come down to take Sami out.
Cradleshock from Sabin on Cardona but Moose pulls Hebner out of the ring to stop the pinfall attempt.
Moose spears the surgically repaired knee of Sabin twice before hitting the Spear and getting the pinfall victory.
Post-match, Moose yells at the Camera that he is coming to get what is “ours” back. Nice to see him as recognizing that he is fighting to bring the titles back.
