Impact Wrestling TV Taping
Windsor, Ontario at St. Clair College
Report by Dot Net reader Mr. Eddy G
1. Madman Fulton and Sami Callahan beat Rich Swann and Tessa Blanchard. Tessa was introduced last and just charged the ring before her intro was finished. Swann was in the ring for a very long time before tagging out. Sami tried to get his baseball bat (which was in his corner along with the title), but the referee took it away form him. While the referee was doing this, Fulton tossed Sami his title and he hit Swann with it and got the pin. Fulton and Sami kept attacking Swann after the bell. Tessa came in to help, but she was beat up too, but then Brian Cage came out to chase off the heels.
2. Trey Miguel defeated Rohit Raju, Aiden Prince, Brent Banks, Willie Mack, and Petey Williams in a six-way to become No. 1 contender to the X Division Championship. Ace Austin joined Don Callis and Josh Mathews on commentary. Trey won after Petey hit a Canadian Destroyer on Rohit, and had the pin, but Trey rolled up Petey as he had the cover and stacked him up for the pin. Petey raised Trey’s hand after the match.
3. Johnny Swinger beat Mark Gunderson. Cam Adamson was the referee. Swinger won a quick match with a Swinging Neckbreaker ironically. Ken Shamrock came down after the match and unprovoked, attacked Johnny and put him in an ankle lock.
4. Madison Rayne (w/Kiera Hogan) beat Alexia Nicole. Hogan had her left arm in a sling. Rayne won with her finisher. A good effort from Alexia.
5. Impact Tag Champions “The North” Ethan Page and Josh Alexander defeated Eddie Edwards and Naomichi Marufuji. The referee was useless in this match in that he didn’t enforce any double teaming, or getting men out of the ring when they tagged out. Marufuji was the star of this match with his tremendous kicks and knee strikes. The North won with their Fireman’s Carry into a spinebuster finish on Eddie.
7. Jessicka Havoc beat a local wrestler. Jessicka dominated the match won with a Tombstone Piledriver.
8. Jordynne Grace beat Johnny Bravo and Taya Valkyrie in a handicap match. Taya walked out on Bravo during the match. Johnny tired fo distract Grace with a new stuffed dog on a leash that Taya brings with her, but Jordynne slapped it away and finished off Bravo with the Grace Driver.
9. Wentz and Dez beat Rohit Raju & Raj Singh, Cody Deaner and Cousin Jake, and Reno Scum. The Rascalz won when Wentz hit an assisted standing moonsault onto Cousin Jake. Reno Scum attacked the Rascalz afterward. Trey came to help, but Ace Austin interferes. Ace loaded up his forearm with a metal bar. Reno Scum held Trey, then Austin nails him in the face.
10. Ken Shamrock beat Joey Ryan. Joey with his usual lollipop shenanigans to start. Joey and Ken high-fived each to begin. Joey eventually got Ken to touch “it” and did his P-Plex. Shamrock was disgusted with this and was holding his hand and was enraged. Shamrock put Joey in an ankle lock, and Joey quickly tapped out.
11. Tessa Blanchard won a gauntlet match to determine the No. 1 contender to the Impact World Title. Moose and Daga we’re out first. Moose won with a Go To Hell. Rich Swann was next and pulled out the win with a crucifix pin. Next was Micheal Elgin, who had several near falls, and applied a Cross Face, but SWann got to the ropes to break it. Elgin got more frustrated as the match went on, and shoved the referee accidentally when he tried to get Elgin out of the corner when he was hitting Rich. Elgin again went back to the corner, and the ref counted to five, but Elgin wouldn’t stop. Elgin shoved the referee to the ground and was disqualified. He wouldn’t leave and powerbombed Swann before other referees got him to stop and took him to the back.
Brain Cage was next. The referee checked on Rich, who was bleeding from his mouth and unsteady on his feet, and asked Swann if he wanted to continue. Swann did and got two close near falls with a 450 from the second rope and another 450 from the top. He tried for a Phoenix Splash but missed and Cage won with a Gory Bomb. An official had to help Rich to the back. I was near the ramp on the left side and heard the wrestlers applauding Rich, who lasted about 30 minutes in his three matches and had a hell of a performance.
The last participant was Tessa Blanchard and they held nothing at all back. Tessa got two close near falls with The Buzzsaw DDT, and The Blanchard, but it wasn’t enough. Cage had a near fall with an F5. He went for a Gory Bomb, but Tessa reversed it into a Canadian Destroyer and won the match! They hugged after the match and Tessa celebrated to end the night.
