Impact Results

*Emanating from Pembroke Pines, FL

*Josh Matthews opens the show (after Bully put Scott D’Amore through a table last week) with a digital face-to-face between Josh Alexander & Bully Ray…Bully knows he can’t wrestle Josh for 60 minutes, Josh is a machine…but Josh messed up when he asked for Full Metal Mayhem, because that’s Bully’s world.

(1)  Heath def. Brian Myers…within 2 minutes the ref has to toss Matt Cardona & Rhino from ringside…Myers lands a top buckle elbow but Heath is out at 2 & transitions into a crucifix roll up…Myers kicks out of the crucifix but Heath follows with the Wake Up Call for the win (13:49).

*Ace Austin & Chris Bey are back from Japan & the Super Junior Tag League (where they went to the finals)…& they proved to work so well together as a team that they’ve already got their eyes on the Impact Tag Titles.

*Jessicka grabs Rosemary to come to the aid of Taya Valkyrie, who has been attacked in a backstage hallway…Taya says it was “the 4 of them”…but tells Rosemary to go handle business in her upcoming singles match with Savannah…& Jessicka should be by her side.

(2)  Savannah Evans def. Rosemary…around the 12 minute mark Jessicka has to pull Jai Vidal off the apron…moments later, Rosemary knocks Giselle Shaw off the apron but the distraction allows Savannah to grab the Full Nelson & hit the Full Nelson Slam for the win (13:25)…AFTER…Tasha Steelz joins Savannah, Gisele, & Jai in the ring to beat down Rosemary & Jessicka.

*The Design to the ring…Deaner calls out Sami Callihan to have his head shaved as the 1st step towards joining the Design…Sami appears in the ring after a “lights out” moment & turns over his bat to Big Kon…he allows Angels to take a little off the top & when Deaner fires up the clippers, Sami takes them & shaves his own head (badly)…Deaner calls it the “death of the Death Machine & the birth of Callihan.”

*Gail Kim backstage with Gia…everyone is expecting Gail to take over for Scott D’Amore after he was attacked, but she’s too busy with her own responsibilities…Anthem has found someone to take over for Scott temporarily & we’ll find out who it is tomorrow night at Hard to Kill.

(3)  Mike Bailey def. Anthony Greene…Bailey hits the spinning head kick, knocking Greene into the corner & follows with Ultima Weapon for the win (06:12).

*Josh Alexander & Bully Ray video package…this build has been very personal & ugly…Full Metal Mayhem will no doubt be more of the same…and it will kick off the show!

(4)  Moose, Eddie Edwards, & Steve Maclin def. Joe Hendry, Rich Swann, & Jonathan Gresham…in a 6-MAN TAG MATCH…the match completely breaks down & everyone gets involved…Hendry hits a Pop-Up Powerbomb on Maclin seconds after Moose makes a blind tag…Hendry turns around into a Spear by Moose for the win (16:48)…AFTER…Eddie Edwards is alone in the ring when the lights begin to flicker & thunderclaps can be heard…the lights come back up & Tom Hannifan remarks, “Whatever the hell that was”…as the show ends.
