Impact Wrestling Results
November 9, 2017

– Josh Matthews and JB welcome us to the heart of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and run down tonight’s match card. For the first time ever, the prestigious GHC Heavyweight Championship will be defended in North America, plus Johnny Impact is looking for an answer from Alberto el Patron who cost him the title at Bound For Glory.

IN-RING SEGMENT

Eli Drake made his way to the ring accompanied by Chris Adonis, announced as the Impact Global Heavyweight Champion. The crowd went back and forth chanting “Eli Drake/sucks” until Adonis told them all to sit down and shut their mouths, claiming that the champ was Canada’s all-time favorite wrestler. Drake bragged about retaining his title at Bound For Glory and squashing the hopes and dreams of Johnny Impact. He said that everything about Sunday was perfect, except that Alberto el Patron decided to get involved and put his mark on the title, and stitches in the back of his head. Apparently, management gave him the night off due to injury, which is fine because there’s nobody left in the locker room to challenge him.

Enter: Petey Williams. The Canadian native got a nice reaction from his hometown crowd, and said that he’d never stop Eli from leaving the country, as nobody wanted him there anyway. Petey pointed out that he’s a two-time X-Division champion and the originator of the Canadian Destroyer, and Drake has never beaten him. The champ asked the crowd if that’s what they want to see – loud pop – but Drake says “maybe next week”. Petey rushed the ring and got past Adonis, leveling the champion with a beautiful jumping neckbreaker. He went for the Destroyer but Adonis saved his meal ticket and the two bailed.

– Johnny Impact was shown arriving to the arena in his car, speeding into the parking lot. He got out looking pissed off and angrily made his way into the building, leaving his car just sitting in the middle of the parking lot, still turned on.

– Jimmy Jacobs came out and joined the commentary team, saying that he came back because he heard Josh Matthews wanted a selfie with him.

MATT SYDAL vs. SONJAY DUTT

The two locked up with some nice back and forth action, feeling each other out and looking for an advantage. Commentary was trying to grill Jimmy Jacobs for info during the match, but he refused to answer any of their questions. Dutt fired off with with a nice hurricanrana and a headscissors takedown into a wrist lock. Sydal fought out of it and connected with a standing moonsault, taking control with a few innovative holds and primarily working his opponent’s knees. He really heeled it up putting the boots to Sonjay’s knee while it was caught in the ropes, ignoring the referee and showing some serious attitude. At some point Jimmy left commentary to seek attention elsewhere.

After a few minutes Sonjay fired up with a few snap takedowns, blocking a Shooting Star Press with a rolling Superman Punch. They traded rights and lefts to the top rope, Dutt connecting with a huge superplex to take things to commercial. After the break, Sydal had regained control savagely beating on his opponent’s knee. They rolled to the floor and he continued his assault by whipping Sonjay knee-first into the barricade, over and over again. The ref asked him if he wanted to continue, and the former champion refused to quit. He rallied back again with an enzuigiri and came off the second rope with an excellent tordado DDT, but the damage had been done to the knee. Sydal took advantage with a chop block, followed by the Shooting Star Press to win.

Winner: Matt Sydal

IN-RING SEGMENT

Ethan Carter III came out and mockingly congratulated Matt Sydal on another win. He brought up that Sydal always wins, over and over again, until the stakes get high and the match means something, at which point he inevitably chokes. EC3 points out that he came into Impact unbeaten and dethroned the unbeatable Bobby Lashley to become the #1 contender to the world title…and then he choked, because that’s what he does. Carter calls him a choke artist that should have been “reborn” a winner, saying that he lacks a killer instinct unlike himself.

IMPACT World Title Match, Ethan Page vs Karl Anderson Set For Final Resolution

Published

on

Two matches have been announced for next weekend’s IMPACT Wrestling Final Resolution special. IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann will defend his title against former X-Division Champion Chris Bey, while “Machine Gun” Karl Anderson battles “All Ego” Ethan Page in singles action.

Bey faced off against Swann’s good friend Willie Mack tonight on IMPACT television, but eventually fell to a powerbomb and a stunner from the big man. The leader of the “Finesse Division” got the last laugh when Moose came out to attack Willie Mack, leaving Swann open to a springboard cutter out of nowhere from Bey.

The Good Brothers took the IMPACT World Tag Team Championships from The North last month at Turning Point. In recent weeks, Doc Gallows suffered a minor injury and was taken off television due to a mysterious backstage attack. Ethan Page revealed himself as the man behind the attack, daring Karl Anderson to meet him in the ring at Final Resolution one-on-one.

Final Resolution will air exclusively on IMPACT Plus on Saturday, December 12.

Rest in peace, Bob Ryder.

Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) vs. Team XXXL (Acey Romero & Larry D)

Shelley is back from a minor injury and wastes no time in showing that he’s just as good as he’s ever been, taking both big men down with rapid strikes and kicking combinations, setting up Chris Sabin for a big dive through the ropes to take them out on the floor. Shelley continues to pelt Acey Baby with kicks and body shots. Sabin comes off the top rope but gets caught around the throat and hurled across the ring. Shelley saves his partner from a splash in the corner and the Guns double team Acey, until he powerbombs one on top of the other.

Larry D gets the tag and goes to work with big stomps and knee drops to the body and back of Shelley. He squashes his opponent in the corner and rolls him back to the center, delivering a mule kick to the side of the head. Two-count. Romero tags back in and XXXL crush Shelley in between them. Sabin doesn’t wait for the tag and just leaps off the ropes into a missile dropkick, sending Larry to the floor.

Tags made by Sabin and Larry D. The Machine Guns double team Larry again with kicking combinations, before taking him off his feet with a High Low combo. Romero makes the save and drops a huge leg on Sabin, blasting Shelley off the apron. XXXL sets up to squash Sabin again, but he rolls out of the way and they crash into each other like freight trains. Shelley returns but eats a back elbow. Sabin off the ropes with a bulldog to take the big man down. The Guns hoist up Ace for an impressive suplex, taking him out of the equation. Larry takes the Skull & Bones for the three.

Winners: Motor City Machine Guns

Sami Callihan and Ken Shamrock arrived at the building but security wouldn’t let them in. Scott D’Amore told Shamrock that he went too far last week putting his hands on an IMPACT official, suspending him without pay for 30 days. Callihan freaks out, and D’Amore tells him if he keeps it up it’ll be 60 days and they’ll both be suspended. Shamrock said he could drop the security guards and force his way into the building, but he’s not looking to make this a legal issue. When he comes back, he promises he’ll put his hands on whoever he wants.

John E. Bravo runs into XXXL backstage and freaks out on Larry D for trying to murder him. Fair point. Tommy Dreamer separated them and told Bravo to hit the bricks for his own safety. Dreamer, in a shirt that says “POLICE” for some reason, tells Larry D that he has to go “downtown” with him for questioning. Larry knocks him out cold with a backhand.

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.)
