First-Time Match & X-Division Title Bout Announced For 3/23 IMPACT Wrestling

IMPACT Wrestling Results

IMPACT Wrestling has announced three matches for the March 23 edition of their show on AXS TV, including a big first-time collision between two highly decorated veterans and a rematch for the X-Division Championship.

X-Division Title Match: Ace Austin (c) vs. TJP


Austin began his “inevitable” second reign as X-Division Champion at Sacrifice this past Saturday. While Madman Fulton did interfere earlier in the match, Austin largely won back the title on his own and proved that he could put away TJP.

There are several challengers waiting on deck, with Josh Alexander and Chris Bey making good arguments on television this week. Bey actually pinned Austin a few days before he won the title, and Alexander beat Bey en route to winning the Triple Threat Revolver earlier this year that helped establish him as a new threat in the X-Division. Ultimately Scott D’Amore opted to give TJP his rematch immediately, which is unlikely to sit well with the others.

Deonna Purrazzo vs. Jazz

The “Virtuosa” of IMPACT Wrestling picked up her third successful Knockouts Championship defense this past weekend with a victory over Knockouts legend ODB. Jazz and her partner Jordynne Grace came up short in a battle for the Knockouts Tag Team Championships at Sacrifice, but Jazz responded three nights later on IMPACT television by winning a 6-on-6 tag team match featuring most of the women’s division. She actually forced the champion’s right hand Kimber Lee to tap out. One would think a non-title victory over Purrazzo next week will put the former NWA and WWF women’s champion next in line for a shot at the title.

Eddie Edwards vs. Karl Anderson

A bit random, but this is a great wrestling match on paper. Eddie is coming off a win over Brian Myers in a Hold Harmless match at Sacrifice. The Good Brothers lost the IMPACT World Tag Team Championships to FinJuice, who have temporarily absconded with the belts back to Japan. Both guys are looking to move forward, so why not throw them together and see what happens?

Interestingly enough, despite having nearly four decades of shared experience including significant time spent in Japan, these two have never shared the ring. Not even for a random multi-man tag team match on an undercard somewhere. A rare 100% fresh match between two heavily-decorated veterans with a small mountain of title belts between them.

IMPACT Wrestling: Hardcore Justice Results
April 10, 2021


Triple Threat Tag Team Match: Josh Alexander & Petey Williams def. TJP & Fallah Bahh and Ace Austin & Madman Fulton. This was a preview for the X-Division title match at Rebellion with all three competitors finding tag partners. All six looked great with non-stop action. Lots of innovative offense but not so much that they were just running through spots aimlessly. Fulton and Bahh looked like monsters and then collided at the end. The finish saw Petey hit the Canadian Destroy on the champ, Austin, while Alexander slapped an ankle lock on Bahh for the submission.

“Chairly Legal” Match: Shera def. Hernandez. Two big dudes brawling around smacking each other with steel chairs. Shera superplexed Supermex into a pile of chairs at the end but he somehow kicked out. Rohit Raju ran out and hit Hernandez in the head with a chair to allow Shera to get the win. Looks like Rohit is trying to mend fences after their fallout.

Doc Gallows def. Black Taurus. This was way too slow for my taste as Gallows controlled most of the offense. It ended with another distraction/interference finish with Karl Anderson getting on the apron. Gallows powerbombed him to win. Taurus is WAY too good to be in spots like this. Reminds me of how TNA used Okada when he was young.

“Crate American Bash” Match: Matt Cardona def. Johnny Swinger. There were creates on each of the turnbuckles with things instead. I have no idea why. One of them had a mouse trap that Swinger caught his fingers on.

Sami Callihan def. Sam Beale. Callihan issued an open challenge before the match. This was basically a squash that Callihan won with the Cactus Piledriver.

Hardcore Blindfold Rules: Jake Something def. Brian Myers. Both men had blindfolds on with weapons everyone. Commentary talked a surprise amount about them maintaining contact and wrist control to make it at least somewhat “technical”. Of course Myers ended up removing his mask with the ref down and superkicked Something. Cardona came out with one of the crates from earlier and slid it into the ring. Something broke it over Myers’ head and action figures flew everywhere, allowing him to hit the Black Hole Slam for the win.

Weapon’s Match: Tenille Dashwood def. Rosemary, Alisha Edwards, Havok, Su Yung and Jordynne Grace. They did some cool tricks with sillouettes and lighting effects to make it look like Su Yung returned and attacked “Susan” to take her place in the match, which scared the hell out of everyone. Tenille won after spending most of the time running away from people and trying to get involved as little as possible. Kaleb with a K got taken out early in the match by all the women, but came back at the end to cost Jordynne the match.

Title vs. Career: Deonna Purrazzo (c) def. Jazz to retain the Knockouts Championship. These two had a good, physical match. Jazz may be a bit more limited than she was in her prime but it’s awesome that she got to come back, kick ass, have some good matches and end her career on her own terms.

Hardcore War: Violent By Design def. Rich Swann & Willie Mack & Eddie Edwards & Trey Miguel. Everyone entered one at a time so there was constantly a numbers game advantage until the end, like in WarGames. So this was originally Tommy Dreamer’s main event as he had booked the whole show, but someone took him out backstage. D’Amore found a replacement in Trey Miguel who came out last with a crowbar to clean house. It occured to me at the end that EY has a torn ACL and I don’t even know how the dude was moving around, let alone doing some of the spots he was doing. Mack took the fall after EY hit him with a piledriver.

4/8 IMPACT Wrestling Results: Road To Hardcore Justice, Omega & Swann Clash In Six-Man Tag

* * *


— Havok & Jordynne Grace & Rosemary def. Alisha Edwards & Nevaeh & Tenille Dashwood. This was a preview for the six-woman Weapon’s Match at Hardcore Justice this Saturday. Rosemary was the one who got the hot tag and the win at the end, catching Alisha with the Red Wedding. Havok and Nevaeh were focussed on each other the whole time after their recent split and both went through a table.

— Matt Cardona was asked his thoughts on Brian Myers rejecting his challenge and wasn’t upset because as he’s said repeatedly, he didn’t come to IMPACT to dig up issues with his old tag team partner. Tonight he’s got Jake Something to focus on.

— It is confirmed that Taylor Wilde is behind the recent vignettes featuring a return/debut in the Knockouts division. They’re not advertising a date yet so the most likely scenario is either at Rebellion or the TV tapings immediately after the PPV.

Jake Something vs. Matt Cardona ended in a No Contest. This was fun while it lasted and succeeded in making Something look good, as they’ve been building him up recently. Brian Myers attacked both men and went after Cardona’s eye. He changed his mind and accepted the challenge for a match at Rebellion.

— XXXL confronted Trey Miguel who continued to claim he wouldn’t be teaming up with Sami Callihan, tonight or any other night, despite them being advertised for a tag team match.
