Impact Wrestling Results (7/19): Unlikely Alliances Formed in Mash-Up Tournament, Triple Threat Knockouts Match


July 19, 2019

— Tonight is the first ever Impact Mash-Up Tournament featuring teams of people who generally can’t stand each other. The winners will face each other for an opportunity at the Impact World Championship.

EDDIE EDWARDS & MOOSE def. CODY DEANER & ROHIT RAJU in a Mash-Up Tournament first round match // Nobody’s surprised here. Raju and Deaner couldn’t get on the same page and Moose speared the hell out of both of them. Edwards with the Boston Knee Party to win.

JAKE CRIST & ZACHARY WENTZ def. MADMAN FULTON & RICH SWANN in a Mash-Up Tournament first round match // Swann got worked over for a good portion of the match. Fulton eventually came in and cleaned house. He and Crist had a tense staredown, and Fulton ended up turning on his own partner. Had to happen at some point. Jake hit God’s Last Gift to win.

MICHAEL ELGIN & WILLIE MACK def. ACE AUSTIN & STONE ROCKWELL in a Mash-Up Tournament first round match // RIP Rockwell. After Mack squashed him early on, Elgin decimated him with a lariat at the end before hitting his usual Buckle Bomb and Elgin Bomb combo.

SAMI CALLIHAN & TESSA BLANCHARD def. DAVE CRIST & TREY MIGUEL in a Mash-Up Tournament first round match // Really good match. Some comedy early as the oVe guys mocked the “Fingerpoke of Doom” spot and Callihan tried to get the easy win, but Trey broke it up. Lots of superkicks early on. Tessa came off looking like a badass. She hit the Magnum and a Tornado DDT but at some point injured her knee. Callihan tagged himself in and pinned Trey with the Cactus Driver.

JESSICKA HAVOC def. MADISON RAYNE and TAYA VALKYRIE // Referee John E. Bravo with lots of interefernce throughout. He saved Taya from being crushed by Havoc and helped her to the back. Havoc pinned Madison instead with the Tombstone Piledriver.
