Gia Miller is with Matt Cardona who is confused by his friend Brian Myers. He didn’t come to IMPACT to fight his friend and he just came here to prove himself and prove his fans something. As a matter of fact, that is Jake Something tonight.
We see a preview for Taylor Wilde appearing.
A loopy Susan (she got knocked out on BTI) gets triggered by a doctor saying “her time has come.” Flares of Su occur.
Matt Cardona vs. Jake Something
Cardona and Jake go back and forth until Matt dropkicks him out of the ring. He goes for a basement dropkick through the ropes and misses, but doesn’t a second time.
Back in the ring, Jake downs Cardona with his body and begins to use some tough shots to keep Matt down. Big hammer forearm downs Matt for a two count.

He misses a turnbuckle charge and Cardona nails him with a boot wash. Kick out at two. Massive sit-out powerbomb by Jake. Two count. Cardona spins Something out of the ring after reversing a powerbomb, but Myers runs out a sends them both in the apron. Myers tosses Something into some errant steps and his eye is driven right into the corner. Myers accepts Matt’s challenge at Rebellion.
XXXL approach Trey Miguel stating that it’s one of their opponents tonight, but Trey disagrees saying he didn’t accept the partnership of Sami Callihan. Both Larry D and Acey Romero question his testicular fortitude.
We see Violent By Design. EY says last week he lost to James Storm, but last week Deaner failed. Tonight, that’s not going to happen. Deaner will do it alone and he will not fail. Tonight, he’s going to prove himself. Tonight he’s going to show them that the world belongs to us.
XXXL vs. Sami Callihan & Trey Miguel
Trey does not come out initially, but eventually does. He keeps his back turned to Sami and the bell rings. He takes it to XXXL but Larry D hits him with a massive knee. Big enziguri to Acey. Sami Callihan makes the tag. He clears the ring and it’s him and Trey standing in the ring as we go to break.
Sami has taken control during the break, but Trey tags himself in only to get caught for a sidewalk slam by Acey. Trey later catches D with a back elbow in the corner and then hits a jumping DDT to Larry. Sami tags himself in. He slaps Trey and Sami sends him into D and it ends up being an offensive maneuver on D. Trey and Sami confront one another and Acey slams their heads together. The two foes dive on XXXL on the outside and it opens up the opportunity for Trey to later lock Larry in his Hourglass submission for the win.
WINNERS: Sami Callihan & Trey Miguel
Sami raises the arm of Trey but Trey isn’t very accepting of it and walks off.
Storm, Sabin and Chris Harris are shown doing blackjack in Swinger’s Casino.
Chris Sabin (with James Storm) vs. Deaner
Deaner indeed comes out by himself. He grins manically before stepping into the ring and the bell sounds.
Sabin gets Deaner in two pin attempts before low dropkicking Deaner and it sends him flipping. Continued offense by Chris and a mousetrap gets a two for him.
Deaner soon finds some rhythm with kneed drops. They trade punches and Deaner shotgun dropkicks him in the corner head first. Two count. He wrenches the neck of Sabin.
Sabin later hits a big fisherman’s buster for a two count. He climbs up top and catches Deaner with a crossbody but Deaner rolls through and gets a two count with a handful of tights. Another pin gets broken up when the ref notices a foot under the ropes.
Crossbody by Deaner and then he follows it up with sit-out powerbomb. Deaner goes for an Orton DDT off the ropes. Chris catches him in the fireman’s carry, but Deaner rakes the eyes and rolls Chris up (and puts his foot on the ropes). Storm points it out and that stops the count. Sabin hits his electric chair finisher for the win.
WINNER: Chris Sabin
Eric Young appears on the screen and shows a beaten up Chris Harris! Rhino goes strong out of nowhere. EY yells that Harris knew it was going to end up this way as Joe Doering pins Harris’ head on a table and grabs a chair. The screen cuts out.
Josh Alexander reveals that it’s going to be Ace Austin defending his X-Division Title against him and TJP at Rebellion. Alexander makes it clear him and TJP are not friends.
