Impact Wrestling his advertising the following matches for the United We Stand event that will be held on April 4 in Rahway, New Jersey at the Rahway Recreation Center.
-Pentagon Jr. and Fenix vs. Rob Van Dam and Sabu.
-Johnny Impact vs. Jake Crist vs. Danta Fox vs. Kotto Brazil vs. Pat Buck vs. Jack Evans in an Ultimate X match for a future X Division Title shot.
-Sami Callihan vs. Jimmy Havoc in a Monster’s Ball.
-“Team Impact” Brian Cage, Moose, and Eddie Edwards vs. “Team Lucha Underground” Drago, Daga, Aerostar, and King Cuerno.
-Tessa Blanchard vs. Joey Ryan in an intergender match.
-Taya Valkyrie vs. Rosemary vs. Jordynne Grace vs. Katie Forbes in a four-way for the Knockouts Title.
-Rich Swann vs. Yamato for the X Division Championship.
-LAX vs. Low Ki and Ricky Martinez.
Powell’s POV: Johnny Impact was removed from the Impact vs. Lucha Undergrund match and moved to the Ultimate X match since our last update. The storyline is that Impact refuses to team with Cage, which is logical given Impact’s recent turn on Cage. The LAX match was also added to the lineup. The theme of the show is that Impact is working with Wrestle Pro, MLW, AAA, Lucha Underground, and Dragon Gate for this event. The show will begin at 10CT/11ET on the Thursday night before WrestleMania and is listed as a 2.5 hour show. The event will be available for purchase via FITE TV for $19.99. If all goes according to plan, I will be covering this show live as it streams here at Dot Net.
