Last week, Rich Swann picked up a pinfall victory over his former best friend and current IMPACT World Champion Sami Callihan, putting him in the run for a title shot. Next week, he’ll join four other competitors, Moose, Daga, Tessa Blanchard, and Michael Elgin. However, tonight, he’ll team up with Blanchard to face the leader of oVe once again, this time with Madman Fulton by his side.
The X-Division Champion joined the commentary team as Ace Austin looked to see who would be challenging him next. Our opening match was a six-way X-Division contest
Raju blindsided Willie Mack, dumping him outside. Prince was sent out as well, and Raju avoided Banks and Williams to take out his opponents outside with a suicide dive.
Trey cleared out the rest of the ring and used Banks for leverage as he bowled over Raju, Mack, and Prince on the outside. Banks and Williams were left inside, with the X-Division legend taking him out. A hurricanrana to the Rascal on the outside sent Trey rolling across the floor.
Mack and Prince returned to the canvas, leading to a three way brawl between themselves and Banks. Chocolate Thunder leveled them both with a pair of clotheslines and dove over the top, managing to leave all five of his competitors out on their backs.
.@Willie_Mack steamrolls through absolutely everybody. #IMPACTonAXSTV
As Mack recovered on the outside, Prince and Banks made it to their feet, trading clotheslines, cross bodies, and pump kicks. Banks set Prince up for a draping DDT in the corner, but Trey came in, taking Banks down with a meteora. Raju rolled in and with a northern lights/fisherman suplex combination, nearly picked up the win.
Williams came in and rocked Raju with a springboard lungblower and a flatliner. Raju was then trapped in the Sharpshooter. Maple Leaf Muscle wasn’t able to keep it locked in long, as Mack caught him with a boot to the jaw. A Samoan drop and a standing moonsault gave him a two-count.
.@_banks SPIKES @Willie_Mack on his head. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Banks rolled in and stunned the big man with a knee and a reverse rana, spiking him on his head. Prince followed up, turning a tilt-a-whirl headscissors into a brainbuster. He caught Trey sneaking up the turnbuckle with a rolling uppercut. Trey escaped and left Prince in the corner for a Cheeky Nando’s kick.
Trey was taken out by Banks, however, and Prince dropped Banks on Trey with a gourdbuster. His 450 Splash connected, but his pin was broken up. Willie Mack hit the Six-Star Splash, only for Raju to break that pin with the double foot stomp.
The one true, original Canadian Destroyer! #IMPACTonAXSTV @iPeteyWilliams
As he tried to pick up the win, a Canadian Destroyer spiked him in the middle of the ring. Trey rolled up Williams for the win.
Results: Trey defeated Petey Williams via pinfall.
Trey was congratulated by his mom, who was seated by the ramp at the guard rail. Ace Austin seemingly set his sights on Trey’s mom.
After picking up a pinfall victory over IMPACT World Champion Sami Callihan last week, Rich Swann was asked what he felt about the five-person elimination match next week. The former X-Division Champion now has an opportunity to add another title to his trophy case. Next week, he’ll prove his naysayers wrong.
Swann has beaten Callihan several times throughout the year, even in a hellacious street fight back in the summer. All he has to do is win two more matches and he’ll achieve what many believed he never could…become the World Champion.
Michael Elgin was also asked about the five-person elimination match next week. The Unbreakable One believes that he’s next in line for that IMPACT World Championship, and put Sami Callihan on notice.
Nobody is going to stop @MichaelElgin25 from becoming the number one contender next week. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Callihan has several dangerous challengers looking to make a name for themselves next week. Big Mike might be at the top of that list.
Rayne, as is tradition, showed off her “LRL” trunks, leading to a snapmare and a running Meteora from Nicole. However, she used the ropes to block a backstabber attempt, following up with a second rope blockbuster. Nicole kicked out at two.
In case you didn’t know @MadisonRayne is the Locker Room Leader, she’s always happy to point it out. #IMPACTonAXSTV
The Queen Bee distracted the referee while Hogan hammered Nicole with a punch. A clothesline gave Rayne another two-count. Nicole was able to turn the match around with a swinging neckbreaker.
A running dropkick sent the five-time Knockouts Champion stumbling to the corner. A backstabber and an electric chair drop earned her a near fall. Rayne rolled out to abandon the match, but Nicole dragged her back in.
HUGE Electric Chair Drop by @AlexxiaaNicole. #IMPACTonAXSTV
However, Hogan distracted both the referee and Nicole, allowing Rayne to hang her up with a second rope slingshot. The CrossRayne earned Rayne a win.
Cross Rayne and @MadisonRayne picks up the victory. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Results: Madison Rayne defeated Alexia Nicole via pinfall.
Backstage, Johnny Swinger was trying to pick up another talent to carry his luggage around. He also claimed to have “dropped a deuce” in Petey Williams’ bag after turning him down last week. Williams came in and picked up a different bag before leaving. Turns out, Swinger’s prank ended up soiling the luggage of none other than the World’s Most Dangerous Man, Ken Shamrock.
Rob Van Dam was seen in a hot tub with Katie Forbes. He talked to the IMPACT fans about when he’ll step in the ring again. After flaunting Forbes for a bit, RVD said that they’ll both return next week.
Daga and Crist threw several kicks, with both men avoiding the blows. However, the Golden Draw was sent to the outside following a running hurricanrana and a dropkick. A corner springboard corkscrew plancha to the outside leveled the former X-Division Champion.
Amazing springboard corkscrew plancha by @Daga_wrestler. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Crist caught Daga going for an enziguri on the apron and hung his leg up on the ropes with a dragon screw. Daga fell to the outside where Crist dove in with a suicide dive-turned-tornado DDT. Daga landed with a handspring, saving himself from certain disaster and popping to his feet. However, Crist threw him overhead with a belly-to-belly, leading to commercial.
Back from the break, Crist had taken control of the bout. A Last Chancery left Daga in some serious trouble in the middle of the ring. El Jefe managed to break out with a few elbows to the head, and leveled Crist with a series of clotheslines and right hands. A tilt-a-whirl backbreaker and DDT gave Daga a two-count.
Snap Death Valley Driver by @TheJakeCrist. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Crist caught Daga in mid air for a Death Valley Driver. Daga responded with the same, leaving both men flat on their backs. Daga bounced Crist with a deadlift dragon suplex, followed by a German suplex. However, as he ran in the corner, Crist sent him over with a belly-to-belly. Crist’s four-kick combination set up Daga for a nearfall.
HUGE hurricanrana off the ropes by @Daga_wrestler. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Daga was taken up top, where he gained the upper hand again with a leaping hurricanrana. Followed by that was a lifted double underhook facebuster, landing Crist on his knees.
Results: Daga defeated Jake Crist via pinfall.
Gabby interviewed The North about their upcoming IMPACT World Tag Team Title match against Eddie Edwards and Marufuji. Ethan Page and Josh Alexander said that this was the perfect opportunity to prove how dominant they really are.
.@OfficialEGO and @Walking_Weapon will be doing their talking in the ring in our main event. #IMPACTonAXSTV
When asked what would happen if they didn’t win, Page looked scared and a little depressed. He snapped out of it, though, and declared the interview over.
The IMPACT World Champion and oVe‘s monster, Madman Fulton, were up next. Rich Swann and Tessa Blanchard, Sami Callihan‘s two long-time rivals and possible #1 contenders, teamed up to ruin oVe’s night once again.
Two superkicks rocked Fulton and Callihan. While the Draw flew outside, Fulton faced Swann and Blanchard two-on-one. A spinning back kick/backstabber combination sent Fulton out to join his leader, where oVe was taken out with a springboard Phoenix Splash by Swann.
.@GottaGetSwann takes out oVe with an incredible dive! #IMPACTonAXSTV
Blanchard met Callihan inside only to be tripped up by Fulton. A brainbuster brought Callihan back into play. Swann tagged in and managed to take out, Callihan. However, Fulton rushed in to catch Swann mid cutter. A double reverse suplex planted Swann face first. Fulton tagged in and dribbled Swann with a deadlift chokeslam.
Fulton absolutely dominated Swann, and nearly tore his arm off, using the ropes as leverage. Callihan tagged in and dropped him for a two-count. Fulton & Callihan tagged in and out, taking their turns punishing the man the Draw once called his brother.
Swann escaped the Cactus Special, finally tagging in Blanchard. A Samoan drop dropped the champion, and a tilt-a-whirl DDT spiked Fulton. the cutter leveled Callihan, and Blanchard moved up for Magnum. Callihan caught her, however, and sent her into Fulton, who caught her with an elbow to the kidneys.
Innovative double team offense – @TheSamiCallihan has his monster @FultonWorld well drilled. #IMPACTonAXSTV
With a neckbreaker/powerslam combo, Callihan tried to pin Blanchard. Swann broke it up and sent Fulton out with a spinning heel kick. Tagging in, a leaping DDT spiked the champion. A combined effort from Swann and Blanchard left Fulton on his back on the outside. Callihan raked the eyes of Swann and brought in the slugger.
The ref pulled it away, only for Fulton to toss Callihan the IMPACT World Championship. Bouncing it off Swann’s head, Callihan and Fulton picked up the win.
.@TheSamiCallihan drives his World Championship into the skull of @GottaGetSwann. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Results: Sami Callihan defeated Rich Swann via pinfall.
Fulton and Callihan battered Swann after the bout. Blanchard tried to run in, only for Callihan to knock her out with the belt as well. Before they could continue, Brian Cage’s music hit.
The Machine will not go quietly into the night – @MrGMSI_BCage is still coming for @TheSamiCallihan and the World Championship. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Cage rushed the ring and took out both oVe members with ease. A clothesline sent the champion packing while Cage dropped Fulton with an F-5.
The Machine was interviewed backstage. Cage said that he’s not done with oVe or Callihan, and he’s definitely not done with the IMPACT World Championship. As far as that #1 contenders match next week is concerned, count him in.
.@MrGMSI_BCage is entering the Elimination Challenge next week on IMPACT! #IMPACTonAXSTV
Johnny Swinger tried to brag about the “epic rib” he pulled on Ken Shamrock, on purpose, obviously. No one wanted to hear it, leaving Swinger celebrating with himself.
That was my favorite suitcase 😡
And uh…yeah…Shamrock found out. So…say goodbye to Johnny Swinger, everyone.
Jordynne Grace confronted Taya Valkyrie backstage, looking for a shot at the Knockouts Title. Valkyrie tried to avoid another confrontation with her. However, Grace said their next meeting didn’t even have to be for the title, and could be any match she wanted. Next week, she’ll face Valkyrie and John E. Bravo in a two-on-one match.
We saw another video by Moose looking to prove that he’s the greatest multi-sports athlete of all time. Today, he took on the world of tennis. Moose, innocently enough, asked his opponent today if anyone had ever “broken their neck” playing tennis.
Roger Federer, Steffi Graf, Pete Sampras, Serena Williams, Björn Borg – @TheMooseNation. Moose now joins the ranks of the world’s best tennis players having instantly mastered the sport. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Following that, Moose absolutely dominated his match against tennis “pro player” Mikey.
Havok demolished Moon, laying her out with a fierce clothesline before tearing into her in the corner. Moon made the mistake of avoiding a body splash and rushing in for a back elbow. Havok caught her, bringing her out for a German suplex.
Devastating German Suplex by @FearHavok! #IMPACTonAXSTV
Moon was left in the bottom turnbuckle where Havok nearly decapitated her with several running boots. She did eventually get in some offense, though nothing seemed to hurt the former Knockouts Champion. A chokeslam would’ve ended Moon, but Havok wanted to punish her a bit more.
The Tombstone finally ended the match, probably sending Moon to the emergency room in the process.
Results: Havok defeated Krystal Moon via pinfall.
Following the match, “Suzie” met her backstage. She liked Havok’s aggressive nature, and claimed that maybe they did know each other. Havok shoved her aside, which seemed to jog some memories of Suzie, who got a few bits and pieces of the night Havok hung her in the stairwell.
Eddie Edwards wrapped up with Josh Alexander to kickstart the main event. Edwards managed to outwrestle the Walking Weapon and tagged in Marufuji. However, Marufuji quickly lost control and was taken to The North’s corner.
Ethan Page and Eddie Edwards wound up in the ring together, with the latter dumping the champion overhead with a belly-to-belly. A reverse atomic drop to Alexander took him out, and Edwards took Page to his corner so he and Marufuji could tag Page with a handful of chops.
The last place @OfficialEGO wants to be is taking chops from both @TheEddieEdwards and @noah_marufuji_. #IMPACTonAXSTV
The North gained the advantage once again, only for Edwards to save Marufuji from a double suplex attempt. They both dove onto the tag champs with a pair of suicide dives as we moved to the final commercial break.
As we came back, Edwards and Page were in the ring. Edwards was distracted by Alexander, allowing Page to rock him with a right hand. The North took Marufuji out, and Alexander sent Edwards crashing to the floor with a running body attack.
Edwards was hung up in the ropes with a decavitator then brought to the corner for a little two-on-one with Ethan Page. A uranage backbreaker from Alexander and a pendulum backbreaker from Page gave the champs a two-count.
Alexander kept Marufuji out of the match, knocking him off the apron whenever he could. A suplex counter allowed Edwards to tag in Marufuji just as Page came in. Marufuji dropped Page with a cartwheel dropkick.
Cartwheel into a dropkick by @noah_marufuji_. #IMPACTonAXSTV
A series of fast kicks sent Page stumbling to the mat, while a back hook kick took Alexander to the floor. Page was dumped from the top with a super hurricanrana by Edwards. Marufuji followed that with a running double stomp for a nearfall. Alexander tagged in, but Marufuji was able to avoid the Loch Ness Lowdown.
.@TheEddieEdwards and @noah_marufuji_ bouncing @Walking_Weapon all over the ring. #IMPACTonAXSTV

Edwards and Alexander rose to their feet. Marufuji rocked Alexander with two kicks, followed by two double underhook powerbombs from Edwards. Alexander kicked out, and kicked out of another pinfall after a strong superkick from Marufuji.
.@TheEddieEdwards and @noah_marufuji_ come agonizingly close to winning tag team gold. #IMPACTonAXSTV
Page stopped Edwards from hitting the Boston Knee Party, allowing the North to wreck Marufuji with some tandem offense. Edwards was left to fend off the champs in a two-on-one situation. After the Monster Mash, Edwards kicked out. The Loch Ness Lowdown, though, was able to put away the former World Champion.
AND STILL IMPACT World Tag Team Champions – @OfficialEGO and @Walking_Weapon! WHAT A MATCH! #IMPACTonAXSTV
