We start off with our usual look back at last week's show, then we're off to Mexico City for our opening match...
X Division Title Match: Rich Swann vs Vikingo
A lucha viking...now I've seen it all. Feeling out process to start, neither man gets an advantage. They trade flying headscissors, then the usual lucha back and forth leading to the indy stalemate. Vikingo with a spinning enziguiri, followed by a springboard headscissors or two. Swann bails to the floor, Vikingo hits a dive, Swann springboards off the rail, and wipes Vikingo out on the bare concrete. Back into the ring where Swann hits Rolling Thunder for 2. Vikingo hits a cradle driver (like Tyler Black when he did God's Last Gift) for 2. Swann hits a leaping super Frankensteiner for 2. Vikingo catches Swann in midair and hits a spinning uranage for 2. Swann with a small package for 2, spinning back kick, and the Chemical Imbalance for 2. Swann comes off the second rope with a 450 for the win.
Winner: Rich Swann
Taya Valkyrie is backstage, and she's...WARMING UP! She wrestles NEXT!
Melissa Santos is backstage with Kiera Hogan and Jordynne Grace, who says they can handle whatever Su Yung and Allie throw at them. Kiera says that person is a shell of who Allie used to be. Santos asks what role Rosemary could play in this, but the screen flickers and a message appears on the wall behind them saying that the darkness will take them, and this is not their fight.

Keyra backjumps Taya, but Taya catches her on a flying headscissors attempt and counters to a side backbreaker. Taya with a double stomp to the back for 2. Keyra uses her speed to outmaneuver Taya and hit a missile dropkick in the corner that nearly goes through Taya's head. Only gets 2. Keyra really drilled Taya good on that one.

Desi Hit Squad vs The Rascalz
Rascalz gets the early advantage, but Singh grabs Zachary Wenta from the outside and Rohit Raju drills him with a dropkick to the ribs. Zachary is in peril as Raju hits a double stomp to the outside. Wentz finally gets free and takes both Singh and Raju out and makes the hot tag. Desmond Xavier cleans house on Singh, Rascalz with a series of double teams on Raju, and Wentz with a HUGE springboard dive to the floor that takes out both the Desis. Desis with a wheelbarrow DDT on Xavier for 2, but a series of double teams and the shove moonsault finishes Singh.
Winners: The Rascalz
We go to the LAX clubhouse, where Konnan is giving them a talking to over what they said to Pentagon and Fenix last week, and is again paranoid about the friendship blowing up. Konnan says maybe he's paranoid, but next week, he's got another couple of luchadores to throw into the mix for a six man with the Lucha Bros.
Ethan Page vs Trey
We join the match in progress as Trey dropkicks Page to the floor and goes for a diving flying headscissors, but Page catches him, tosses him off, and boots him in the face. Trey quickly recovers and hits an Asai moonsault to the floor. We head back inside, where Page catches Trey on a crossbody attempt and hits a powerslam. Page with a spinning bodybag to Trey for 2, then whips him hard into the corner and covers for 2. Page with a hard forearm to the face, then pops Trey up and hot shots him off the top rope for 2. Trey connects with a Pelle kick, but Page boots his head all the way back to the United States. Trey with a stiff kick and a running neckbreaker, then he trips Page and hits a 619 before hitting a split-legged moonsault for 2. Page with a big vertical suplex for 2, Trey escapes the super Samoan drop, and knocks Page to the mat with another 619. Page dodges a top rope double stomp, but Trey rolls the dice for the win.
Impact World Title Match: Johnny Impact vs Killer Kross
Impact uses his speed to try and outmaneuver Kross, but the big man takes him to the mat and hammers him with right hands. Impact with a Russian legsweep and a handstand legdrop for 1. Kross avoids a top rope something and knocks Impact silly with a running kneestrike to the face. Kross with a gutwrench, rolls through, goes for a powerbomb, Impact reverses to a Frankensteiner, drills Kross with a leaping enziguiri, and Moose grabs Impact's ankle, distracting him long enough for Kross to nail Impact from behind and choke him in full view of the referee as we go to commercial.
We're back, and Impact is still firmly in peril as Kross pounds his skull in. Impact eventually mounts a comeback, hitting a running knee and a spear for 2. Impact goes for Starship Pain, but Kross rolls out of the way, then gets the choke, but Impact blocks it. Brian Cage suddenly runs in and takes them both out with a double clothesline.
Cage picks Moose up and hits an F5, Kross hits Cage with a Saito suplex, but Cage pops right back up and rips Kross' head off with a roaring clothesline. Impact superkicks Cage, but Cage rolls over him with a clothesline as well. Kross and Moose finally work together to attack Cage, but Impact gets involved and it just turns into a wild brawl. Kross and Moose bail, Impact and Cage have a staredown, and we call it a week.
