IMPACT 1000 Preview: September 27, 2023
Last week, Knockouts from the past and present came together for a heated war of words. Now that the battle lines have been drawn, the greatest fight in Knockouts history can take place! This Thursday, brace yourself for perhaps the most star-studded Knockouts match of all time as the division takes center stage once again. Knockouts World Champion Trinity, Jordynne Grace, Mickie James, Gail Kim and Awesome Kong collide with Deonna Purrazzo, Tasha Steelz, Gisele Shaw, Savannah Evans and Angelina Love in a massive 10-Knockout tag team match. Also at ringside will be Raisha Saeed, Velvet Sky and Jai Vidal!
Less than one week after his hard-fought victory over Steve Maclin, Josh Alexander refocused on his ultimate goal: reclaiming the IMPACT World Championship that he never lost. But after an emotional exchange with reigning champion Alex Shelley, Alexander found himself laid out at the hands of the IMPACT World Tag Team Champions, the Rascalz. Notably, it was Shelley who refused to come to Alexander’s aid. This Thursday, Alexander is out for revenge when he goes one-on-one with Trey Miguel!
In last Thursday’s main event, Chris Sabin toppled Lio Rush to become a record-setting 10-time X-Division Champion. Now a new #1 Contender will be determined in the signature match of the X-Division, the high-risk, high-wire spectacle known as Ultimate X. Ace Austin, Zachary Wentz, Rich Swann, Alan Angels, Mike Bailey and Samuray Del Sol – who is willing to risk it all for a shot at greatness?
After losing the Digital Media Championship to Tommy Dreamer, Kenny King was denied a rematch last week by Director of Authority Santino Marella. As stars from throughout IMPACT’s illustrious history celebrated its 1000th episode, King instead found himself going face to face with former Team Canada member, Eric Young! This Thursday, King will look to bounce back when he battles Young in singles competition.
Dirty Dango hates what professional wrestling has become. But when Jake Something stood up to him on behalf of the entire IMPACT locker room, Dango hid behind his personal bodyguard, Alpha Bravo. While Dango takes his spot on the roster for granted, Something has worked hard to make it back to IMPACT Wrestling. This Thursday, Something vows to teach Dango the ultimate lesson in respect when they meet one-on-one!
Chris Bey, Crazzy Steve, Yuya Uemura and Moose all secured a briefcase in the return of Feast or Fired and this Thursday, the contents of those briefcases will be revealed. Someone will earn an IMPACT World Title opportunity, an IMPACT World Tag Team Title opportunity, a Digital Media Title opportunity – and someone will be fired!
The action begins Before the IMPACT, streaming this Thursday at 7:15pm ET exclusively on YouTube, IMPACT Plus (live player) and Facebook. The Knockouts World Tag Team Titles are on the line as MK Ultra defend against former champions, the Death Dollz! Plus, Gia Miller, Josh Mathews and George Iceman get you ready for all things IMPACT.
