The adrenaline-pumping action continues on an all-new IMPACT! this Thursday at 8/7c on AXS TV and 8:30pm ET on YouTube for IMPACT Insiders.
Previously on IMPACT!, Rich Swann last-eliminated Callihan to win the Golden Six Shooter and become #1 Contender for Josh Alexander‘s IMPACT World Title. Following that contest, Swann found himself on the receiving end of an outnumbered beatdown at the hands of The Design. But there to make the save was a band of allies, comprised of Yuya Uemura, Frankie Kazarian and even Swann’s opponent at No Surrender, Josh Alexander. With revenge on their mind, an epic eight-man tag team main event has been made official for this Thursday’s IMPACT!: Alexander, Swann, Kazarian and Uemura will go to war with Deaner, Callihan, Kon and Angels!
Two teams who came out on the winning end of last week’s IMPACT! on AXS TV were the Bullet Club and the duo of Kevin Knight and KUSHIDA. Ace Austin and Chris Bey defeated the Major Players, while Knight and KUSHIDA triumphed over The Good Hands. With tag team competition hotter than ever in IMPACT Wrestling, they will now face each other this Thursday night. These two teams are no strangers to each other, having both competed in the NJPW Super Jr Tag League late last year. Who will move one step closer towards a potential IMPACT World Tag Team Title opportunity?
Following another unsuccessful attempt at capturing the Knockouts World Tag Team Titles, this time with the legendary Tara, Gisele Shaw looks to refocus on singles competition this Thursday. But standing across from the ring from “The Quintessential Diva” will be a determined Savannah Evans. Last week, Tasha Steelz admitted that her partnership with Evans “hasn’t been working” as of late and walked off the set of their interview with Gia Miller. Now Evans is poised to prove a point, that she’s not the weak link of the alliance!
Last week, Trey Miguel retained his X-Division Title over a game Mike Jackson. But after the contest, Miguel was confronted by a ghost from his past, the maniacal Crazzy Steve. A chilling message was sent to the brash champion when Steve eerily spray-painted Miguel’s logo on his own body. Steve may have come up short in his X-Division Title opportunity on Countdown to Hard To Kill but it’s now become apparent that problems between the two are far from over. This Thursday, Steve looks to build momentum in hopes of earning another title shot when he goes one-on-one with IMPACT newcomer Sheldon Jean!
Kick off your night Before the IMPACT, streaming this Thursday at 7:15pm ET exclusively on IMPACT Plus, YouTube and Facebook. Jonathan Gresham battles Aiden Prince, who is eager to make a name for himself on the big stage! But can he withstand the onslaught of “The Octopus”? Plus, Gia Miller, Josh Mathews and George Iceman get you ready for all things IMPACT.
