IMPACT Wrestling Results
November 24, 2020

Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz def. The Sea Stars to advance to the second round of the Knockouts Tag Team Championship Tournament. Solid opening match. Hopefully we see more of the Sea Stars going forward. Kiera won with a fisherman’s buster.

— Jordynne Grace revealed her partner for the tag team tournament and it’s none other than… Jazz! The former WWE/NWA women’s champion is coming out of retirement to partner with Thicc Momma Pump!

— Ethan Page was excited about Doc Gallows being out with an injury, but Josh Alexander reminds him that it just sets them back further because they can’t challenge for the IMPACT world tag team titles.

Wrestler’s Court: D’Lo Brown ended up being the judge because Dreamer clearly is not impartial. Madison Rayne provided the defense for Johnny Swinger while Dreamer moved over to the prosecution. Dreamer claimed Swinger had motive, and they have him dead to rights with the gun in his fanny pack. Fallah Bahh took the stand and claimed Johnny was jealous of him being chosen as best man for Bravo’s wedding. Acey Romero hilariously said he did a fingerprint analysis on the gun and found prints from Swinger, Cody, Taya and Rosemary, Brian Pillman (LOL!) and even Ron Simmons. “DAMN!” says D’Lo.

“Suicide” def. X-Division Champion Rohit Raju in a non-title match. Rohit tried to unmask Suicide during the match thinking it was TJP, but TJP came out to the stage confusing him. Crazzy Steve revealed himself under the mask and won with a sunset flip pin.

— Ken Shamrock was shown backstage getting amped up for his world title match. Moose came in and said that Shamrock is only fighting for the second most prestigious world title in IMPACT Wrestling, and reminded him that last time they were in the ring together, Moose won. Sami Callihan held back Shamrock so he didn’t straight up murder the man.

Kimber Lee def. Killer Kelly. Both of these women are great but I wanted this to go longer. Susie came out after the match and apologized to Kimber Lee and Deonna Purrazzo for what was about to happen, but they hurt her friend… Fog filled the ramp and Su Yung marched to the ring, attacking both women. Lee pulled Deonna out of the ring and saved her from the Mandible Claw. Don’t ask me how they got Susie and Su Yung in the same segment. Cool production moment there.

Swoggle def. Ethan Page. I’m just gonna leave it at that.

Wrestle’s Court: Father James Mitchell and Rosemary both took the stand for some seriously bizarre interviews. Dreamer grilled Rosemary about whether she ever actually loved John E Bravo. Bravo in a hospital gown finally walked into the room and revealed that it was Larry D who shot him. Case dismissed.

— Fallah Bahh vs. Daivari ended in a no-contest when Eric Young and Joe Doering interrupted and beat down both men. Young cut a promo that was interrupted by an angry Rhino, but he was no match for Doering.

— Deonna Purrazzo and Kimber Lee find Father James Mitchell and ask him to turn Su Yung back into Susie. He claimed he can get the job done and Deonna cautiously shook his hand. I’m sure this will work out fine.

Rich Swann (c) def. Ken Shamrock to retain the IMPACT World Championship. Sami Callihan was ejected from ringside early on. Shamrock controlled a lot of the offense, picking his spots and using a lot of submissions to pick apart the surgically repaired knee as well as the champion’s elbow. Swann nearly tapped several times but won clean, rolling back while in a sleeper hold for the pin.

— Shamrock attacked the referee and Callihan returned, dropping Rich Swann with a piledriver. He went for his baseball bat but Eddie Edwards ran down to make the save. Except he didn’t. Callihan ended up hitting Eddie with the bat and tying him up in the ropes. Callihan smashed him in the face with the bat, busting him open and knocking him out. D’Lo ran out and got dropped by Shamrock as well.

Published

There is going to be an AEW presence on IMPACT Wrestling once again this week, as Matt Hardy and Private Party will be on the show.

Last week the former IMPACT star brought his tag team to IMPACT as a surprise, where they faced Chris Sabin and James Storm in a number one contenders match for the IMPACT Tag Team Championships.


Private Party came out on top and earned a future title shot against The Good Brothers, which will be taking place at IMPACT No Surrender.

However, fans won’t have to wait until then to see the AEW stars on an IMPACT show, as it has been confirmed that the trio will be appearing this week.

Break It Down: Ranking Every Major Wrestling TV Show (Week #3)

Published

Break It Down

As we head towards one of the busiest periods of the calendar year for professional wrestling, the eyes have certainly been on the weekly shows and the quality that they are providing. The third week of the year certainly wasn’t a perfect one overall, but while some shows struggled, others really thrived.

There were some fantastic in-ring matches throughout the week, with a title bout and some good storyline development towards the major shows that are coming up in the future. But which show was the pick of the bunch? Join us as we Break It Down to find out!


6. WWE Raw

For the third week in a row, WWE Raw takes the bottom spot, with the red brand really struggling to build an entertaining three hours. The show has fleeting moments of quality, such as the match between Charlotte Flair and Peyton Royce, which was hard-hitting and back and forth, as did Ricochet and AJ Styles, which is no surprise.

However, the show is just far too inconsistent, with not enough quality throughout the evening to really grip people, even heading into the Royal Rumble. Mace and Xavier Woods had quite a sloppy match, while the six-man tag team match had far too much in-fighting for The Hurt Business for the bout to get going.

Alexa’s Playground didn’t really work with Asuka, and their main event angle didn’t click either. However, the worst segment of the night was the Dirt Sheet, which was mocking Drew McIntyre and Goldberg. Seeing Gillberg was fun, but this didn’t build any interest in the upcoming WWE Championship match and made them both look ridiculous.

5. AEW Dynamite

It was an off night for AEW this week, with this particular episode of AEW Dynamite not quite delivering or feeling particularly ‘must-see.’ There were good elements to this show, with Tazz cutting a great promo and Jon Moxley having arguably the match of the night.

However, there was a lot that just didn’t work. The opening tag team match was chaotic and quite sloppy, and that was a trend throughout the night. AEW often likes to have six-man tags, but a lack of rule-following is something that makes the matches tough to get connected with.

The main event was fun, seeing the Inner Circle’s attempts to prove who is the best being enjoyable, but it wasn’t a blockbuster match. Meanwhile, Cody’s bout with Peter Avalon was just far too long. The Shaq storyline continues to be teased and hasn’t really proven to be interesting to this point, with this show just lacking the normal buzz overall.

4. WWE SmackDown

Roman Reigns

The blue brand was a much better show this week than last, with WWE SmackDown returning to its usual quality. Throughout the show, the work with Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman was tremendous, with the opening promo from the Universal Champion silencing any doubters about his microphone skills.

The women’s tag team match was very enjoyable, with The Riott Squad holding their own with the champions until Billie Kay accidentally cost them. Her work is continuing to be great, and hopefully, WWE can continue that, meanwhile the Obstacle course did actually prove to be entertaining.

This was the type of segment that could have been a disaster, but it did a really good job of putting over Bianca Belair, especially when she carried Otis. Plus, seeing Kevin Owens get the best of Roman Reigns for a change was fantastic to see, as that hasn’t really happened since the Tribal Chief returned to WWE.

3. WWE NXT U.K.

WWE NXT U.K. was very enjoyable this week, with WWE’s newest brand continuing to deliver in high-quality in-ring action. Right from the start that standard was set as Rampage Brown and Dave Mastiff had a very hard-hitting bout. There was nothing pretty or technical about it, but instead, it was just a physical brawl, which was tons of fun to watch.

The show developed other storylines nicely as well. Kenny Williams pushing Amir Jordan into a tough match sets up certain possibilities, meanwhile seeing Ilja Dragunov return and showcase a much more physical and aggressive side of himself was tremendous, as he can build on this now.

The main event was given plenty of time and it really benefitted from that. Kay Lee Ray put her NXT U.K. Women’s Championship on the line against Jinny and they had a fantastic match together, going back and forth with Joseph Conners causing issues on the outside, ultimately leading to the finish.

2. WWE NXT

The black and gold brand was very much focused on the in-ring product again this week, which is mainly because of the two tournaments taking place. Kushida and Leon Ruff had a solid match with The Way, while Lucha House Party and Imperium had a really exciting match as well.

Having Lucha House Party set up their match with Legado Del Fantasma was great work, continuing to push the main roster team. Plus, it was great to see the women’s tournament really get built up, and Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter going through was a great surprise.

But it was the main event that really stole the show here, with the Fight Pit returning. This match type is one of the best that WWE has created in years, and Timothy Thatcher and Tommaso Ciampa certainly didn’t disappoint, with an incredibly physical clash.

1. IMPACT Wrestling

When it comes to the best show of the week, there’s no doubt that IMPACT Wrestling takes the top prize. This show had everything from great in-ring work, surprises, and fantastic backstage segments to create a really entertaining evening of wrestling.

The big tag team segment was great, seeing James Storm return and then the surprise of Matt Hardy and Private Party, proving more doors are open between AEW and IMPACT. This played into the main event, which was a great bout, and with Tony Khan appearing as well, it was certainly noteworthy.

The way Taya Valkyrie finished up her run with IMPACT was fantastic, while the opening match between Eric Young and Rhino, plus the post-match beatdown was very well done as well. The show built the women’s tag team division and continued to push other mid-card talents too, which really provided an entertaining show.

Sixth place= 1 point
Fifth place= 2 points
Fourth place= 3 points
Third place= 4 points
Second place=5 points
First place= 6 points

2020 results (each week, the points tally will be added up below):

WWE Raw- 3
IMPACT Wrestling- 12
WWE NXT- 15
AEW Dynamite- 12
WWE NXT UK- 10
WWE SmackDown- 11
