Impact Wrestling Preview: Sami & Tessa Headline, X-Division 6-Pack Challenge, Marufuji Goes for Tag Team Gold


Impact Wrestling returns to Windsor, Ontario this evening for another stacked, all-new episode as we continue the fallout from last month’s exciting Bound for Glory pay-per-view.

The “Callihan Death Machine” will be in action as the Impact World Champion Sami Callihan teams with oVe strongman Madman Fury for an intergender tag team main event, pitting the two against Tessa Blanchard and Rich Swann. Swann scored a win over the champion last week in an 8-man tag team match, but Blanchard has laid claim as next-in-line to the world title, so this one could get very interesting.

Last week we also saw Japanese ace Naomichi Marufuji defeat the “Walking Weapon” Josh Alexander in singles action, after The North issued an open challenge to the roster. They later claimed that Alexander only lost because they had prepped for a tag team competition, so tonight Marufuji will team with Eddie Edwards to challenge The North for the Impact World Tag Team Championships.

Also on the show is a singles match between Daga and former X-Division Champion Jake Crist, which should be a tremendous bit of wrestling. In fact, the entire X-Division will be in action as the #1 contender’s spot to the title will be on the line in a 6-pack challenge between Petey Williams, Trey Miguel, Willie Mack, Rohit Raju, Brent Banks and Aiden Prince.

While a match has not been announced, Havok and Madison Rayne are both advertised to compete.

Join us for live coverage of Impact Wrestling tonight at 8:00 PM ET. You can watch the show live on AXS TV in the U.S., on the FIGHT Network in Canada, and stream online on Twitch.
