September 15, 2020

The show opened with a graphic dedicating the episode to the memory of Barry Scott, the longtime voiceover artist of TNA Wrestling.

Kylie Rae & Susie def. IMPACT Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo & Kimber Lee. Good back and forth action early on, before the heels worked over Susie with quick tags and dominant offense. Kylie got the hot tag and ran wild, getting a nearfall on Lee with a superkick. Susie pinned Kimber Lee with the Panic Switch.

After the opener, it looked like Susie might “snap” back into Su Yung, but Kylie was able to calm her down and the two left together.

Rich Swann is in the building and will address the fans tonight!

Trey Miguel tried to get a title shot out of Rohit Raju, but he continued to give him the runaround claiming it was still a battle between Chris Bey and TJP for the title shot.

XXXL (Ace Romero & Larry D) def. The Deaners (Cody Deaner & Cousin Jake). This started as a rivalry in WrestleHouse over who drank all of Larry D’s beer. He got the pin on Jake.

Trey Miguel def. TJP. A great fast-paced match with a mix of different styles that left me wanting more. Lots of submission work from TJP. He crashed and burned on a big splash, Trey hit a running Meteora and a diving Meteora to get the win.

Ace Austin, Madman Fulton, Ethan Page and Josh Alexander beat the hell out of Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz backstage. It was announced that The Rascalz have not been cleared to compete, so their main event with MCMG is off. This led to the Good Brothers offering their support for an 8-man tag.

Rich Swann came to the ring on crutches and called out Scott D’Amore. Swann can’t get over that the man who forced him into “retirement” is now the IMPACT World Champion, and wants a fight against Eric Young. D’Amore reiterated that he wasn’t clear, but Swann doesn’t care and says he’ll be in fighting shape by Bound for Glory. EY hits the ring, the two get into a wild brawl with Swann swinging like a madman, and D’Amore went down in the chaos. Furious, he made the match official – we have our BFG main event.

Willie Mack def. Brian Myers. Myers controlled the early action after a legsweep on the ramp. Mack came back with some explosive offense including spinning back elbows and an exploder suplex. Myers, ironically doing his “most professional wrestler” gimmick, hit an exposed turnbuckle he set up earlier, and ran into a stunner.

Rosemary tried to convince Jessicka Havok to participate in a resurrection of Father James Mitchell so he could officiate her wedding to John E. Bravo. Havok wouldn’t have it and the two nearly got into a fight before Neveah pulled them apart.

Moose is starting to snap and tried to convince Scott D’Amore to do something about EC3 stalking him, but D’Amore didn’t believe him. EC3 showed up in a projection and told him he was running out of time before he destroyed the TNA World Heavyweight title.

Kiera Hogan (w/ Tasha Steelz) def. Taya Valkyrie. Steelz blatantly attacked Taya while the referee was distracted, and helped Hogan get the upset win. The story here is that Taya had asked Rosemary to be ringside for her tonight, but she was too busy planning the wedding.

Rhino distracted Hernandez backstage so that Heath could sneak into the room and steal his wad of money. I guess they’re still trying to raise money to buy ad time to convince IMPACT management to sign Heath. It really doesn’t convince me that this guy has any value if, at this point, nobody wants to sign him.

Announced for next week is Chris Bey vs. TJP vs. Trey Miguel with the winner immediately facing Rohit Raju for the X-Division title. Plus Kimber Lee vs. Susie, and Tenille Dashwood vs. Jordynne Grace.

Ace Austin, Madman Fulton & The North (Ethan Page & Josh Alexander) def. The Machine Guns & Gallows (Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows). Austin stole the win for himself off a blind tag, after The North had already hit their finisher, pinning Sabin, so he now has a win over one half of the tag team champions.

X-Division Title Match, Knockouts Tournament Set For Tonight’s IMPACT Wrestling

Published

on

Four matches have been announced for tonight’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling.

The first round of the Knockouts Tag Team Championship Tournament will continue as one of women’s wrestling’s greatest legends, Jazz, returns to the ring in what could be her final performance. Jazz is looking to end her legendary career in IMPACT after announcing her retirement earlier this year. She teams with Jordynne Grace to battle outsiders Killer Kelly and Renee Michelle, who have a big opportunity to impress IMPACT management.

After a minor injury took Alex Shelley out of action for the past few weeks, the Motor City Machine Guns return to the ring tonight to face off against the heavyweight hosses who – in story – injured Shelly in the first place: Larry D and Acey Romero of Team XXXL.

The self-proclaimed “Desi Hitman” Rohit Raju will also defend the X-Division Championship against Crazzy Steve on IMPACT this week. Steve scored a win over the champ last week while disguised as Suicide, thanks to a bit of outside distraction from TJP. The leader of the “Finesse Division” Chris Bey will also go one-on-one with Willie Mack.

IMPACT Wrestling airs every Tuesday night at 8:00 PM ET on AXS TV but for those without access to the channel, the show streams simultaneously on Twitch for free.

James Storm Reveals How Much Money Beer Money Drew From Merchandise

Beer Money was one of TNA’s greatest ever tag team, and James Storm recently revealed just how popular the duo was.

When discussing with The Angle Podcast about if the team could reunite in WWE, Storm admitted he is confident they’d be good merchandise sellers, as the duo once made TNA a million dollars in just one year.

“You know, I don’t know if we’d be a top team. We’d be one of the top merchandise sellers, I’ll tell you that… because we made TNA like a million dollars in one year just off Beer Money merchandise so, I could only imagine with the WWE machine behind it or whatever. But, that’s hearsay, so we never know until maybe it happens so…”

Storm has recently made a couple of one-off appearances for IMPACT, and he spoke about the relationship he has with Scott D’Amore which has allowed those to happen.

“It was just Scott D’Amore, you know, messaged me and was like, ‘Hey, we’re going to be in Nashville filming. Just wanted to see if you happen to be available. We’d like for you to come in and be in this Battle Royal, a surprise entry or whatever’ and I was like, ‘Yeah sure. Whatever you guys need or whatever’ and we talked about it and agreed on it and then, when I was up there, they wanted me to come back the next day but I had [a] prior engagement. I had do an autograph signing or whatever so — they said, ‘Well, Alex Shelley got hurt, so [would you] like to come back and be [in] a tag team with Chris Sabin?’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ Number one, it’d be fun and number two, I want to prove to everybody else that I can go out there and still go when I need to and so it was just one of those things. He’s like, ‘Alright, cool.’ So, I landed at 12 o’clock, drove right to the building, got dressed and performed, and did what was asked of me.”

James Storm also has a great working relationship with Billy Corgan and David Lagana, whom he worked with for NWA. He admitted that both men were actually trying to help give him the push to get to WWE when they brought him on board.

“I called David Lagana and Billy [Corgan] and talked to them, because I still had a rollover clause at the beginning of February in my contract, and they were like, ‘Look, as long as you can give us one date to drop the belts’ and I was gonna do that WrestleMania weekend when they do all the shows and I was like, ‘Yeah. I’ll do the right business. Whatever you guys need, just let me know…’ because they told me, ‘This was actually our goal to get you there [WWE]. You belong –’ not saying that NWA is not a big stage but, ‘You belong on the bigger stage. That’s where you belong’ and so I always thought that was really cool of Billy and Dave.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions.)

Published

IMPACT Wrestling star Ethan Page announced today that he would have to pull out of his December 4 booking against Drake Daniels for the ACW promotion in Wisconsin, after coming into contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19.

Dave Meltzer reported this past week that someone at the most recent set of IMPACT television tapings tested positive for the disease. The promotion has already wrapped production on enough episodes to take them through their Hard to Kill pay-per-view in January.

It was also reported that Ethan Page’s contract with IMPACT actually expires at the end of 2020, and he will become a free agent in the new year if a new deal cannot be reached before then.
