Post-match, Havok is distraught over the loss and Nevaeh isn’t pleased. She settles down and the two sort of embrace, but as Havok walks away, Nevaeh attacks her from behind and spears her. She then punches away at her partner before giving her a flat liner DDT.
James Storm expresses how amped he is to Gia Miller about his 1,000th match. This is more of a dedication than a celebration and Storm makes a note that this is for the late Bob Ryder who gave two kids named James Storm and Chris Harris a chance. He tells Eric Young he better be ready. He knows Eric is gonna bring his friends. Well, he brought his friends too and income Jake Something and Chris Sabin. Sabin says they have a surprise for him and then Chris Harris enters. The two stare one another down before embracing.
Deonna is backstage with Susan. She says they are unstoppable, but Susan expresses her distaste for Jazz before Jazz comes in and beats her down. Deonna runs off as Susan is left laying.
Larry D (with Acey Romero) vs. Sami Callihan
The two slug it out and Larry gets the better of it first, but Sami soon capitalizes and D goes to the outside. Fight on the apron and Sami slugs Larry off. D catches him flying and sends him crashing into the apron. D belly-to-back suplexes Sami on the apron and we head to break.
Back from break, it’s Larry knocking Sami out of the ring and a brawl commences on the outside. It’s a while before the two get back in the ring. The two trade running clotheslines and Sami pulls the hair, but Larry D nails a Brodie Lee lariat. Running splash from D gets a near fall.
Sami catches Larry up top and hits a DVD, but only good for two. Sami soon goes to piledrive D on the apron, but Larry blocks it. Strikes exchanged on the apron. Sami slips free from a fireman’s and gouges Larry’s eyes. Sami boots him in the face and hits a Heatseeker. That’s good for the win.
WINNER: Sami Callihan
Post-match, Acey Romero comes in and beats up Sami. Unlike Sami did for Trey last week, Trey did not come out to save him. Callihan is shown grinning as Striker puts over that “Trey passed the test Sami put his way.”
Kenny Omega is with The Good Brothers and Don Callis. They aren’t impressed by Fin Juice and Callis notes that something is off with Doc and Karl. Don whispers something to The Good Brothers and they head off.
Sami finds Trey Miguel backstage. He notes that Miguel didn’t help him. Trey is fired up. Sami has pushed him to his limit because he knows him too well. Trey needs to take that anger and take it to the next level. Trey tells him that he’s not his “Twitter checkmark.” Sami wants to be his mentor. Callihan wants Trey to help him carry IMPACT into the next phase. Next week, he’s going to Scott D’Amore and ask him for a tag match against XXXL. Trey says “hell no” but Sami wants him to think about it.
Brian Myers vs. Suicide
Myers is still sporting the eyepatch as he and Suicide trade offensive attacks. A headscissor takedown puts Suicide in control. Myers takes over in the heelish manner of a chin lock, but Suicide fires back with some palm strikes and a shotgun dropkick. Savate kick by Myers followed by a Falcon Arrow for two.
Myers taunts Suicide who fights to his feet with an inverted side effect. He hits his Roster Cut clothesline for the win.
WINNER: Brian Myers
Myers speaks to Matt Cardona in the ring post-match. He says Matt is just looking for the “rub,” but it’s not gonna happen here. He’s the franchise of IMPACT wrestling, not him. Matt’s challenge is declined.
Tommy Dreamer pitches to Jazz backstage the “Ultimate Jeopardy” match to her at Hardcore Justice, meaning she has to put up something in order to get something. If she wins, she wins the Knockouts Title, if she loses (Jazz proposes this part mind you) her career is finished. Tommy’s okay with it if she is and obviously, she is (again, she pitched it, folks).
The two Tonys appear to promote tomorrow’s Dynamite. It starts with the hype of Arcade Anarchy and Tony Khan is going Kenny Omega level of bezerk promoting it.
Swinger’s Palace is full of Swingerellas and a full bladder of John E. Bravo. Enter Don Callis and Kenny. Don notes that he hasn’t seen Swinger since the pre-cell phone era. They pitch a friendly wager to put $20K on Omega beating Rich Swann.
TJP & Josh Alexander vs. Madman Fulton & Ace Austin
Fulton powers around Alexander which sets Ace up for a tag, but it’s Austin who tags Madman back in. Alexander with a side headlock. Belly-to-back by Madman, but Josh still doesn’t release the hold. Alexander nails Madman with a top rope lariat and crashes him into the corner. Ace has to tag in and Alexander wrestles around with him, thwarting his chance at tagging his partner back in. TJP and Alexander work over both opponents before arguing with one another. TJP tags himself in and he is on the offensive until Madman grabs hold of him in the corner. Sleeper by Ace. TJP gets to his feet, but Acesends him in the corner and tags in Madman. He strangles TJP on the top rope causing the ref to count to five.
They double-team TJP with a running lariat to the back of the head and it’s good just for two. Hot tag to Josh soon as he takes it to Madman with some shots. He even reverses a suplex by the big man, but then Madman backdrops him before giving him a big boot. Ace goes to crossbody a prone Alexander in a Madman suplex, but TJP saves him. TJP boot washes Ace and the two men double team attack, Fulton. TJP gets sandwiched in between the two. Madman and TJP spill out as Ace gets a close fall on Alexander.
TJP hits a Mamba Splash on Ace, but he and Alexander argue over the pin. This allows Ace to fold TJP up for the 1-2-3.
WINNERS: Ace Austin & Madman Fulton
Don Callis comes in to patronize Willie Mack as he begins to show him Kenny Omega highlights. Rich Swann confronts Don. Callis says for right now he’s not an executive and challenges Rich to hit him. This opens up an attack from Kenny and The Good Brothers. Willie brawls with them and Eddie Edwards enters in for the save to send the bad guys scurrying.
Rohit Raju wants to form a tag team with Hernandez, but all Hernandez cares about is money in his hand. Rohit currently doesn’t have that so he has to get to stepping.
We see Eric Young talking about James Storm challenging him for his 1,000th match. He says Storm is lost to the purity of truth James. He has stood the test of time but so has Eric Young. Tonight he’s going to show him that this world doesn’t belong to him, but to VBD.
