Impact Wrestling results: Bound For Glory fallout

Impact Wrestling results: Bound For Glory Fallout

Tonight's show featured the fallout from Bound For Glory where three championships changed hands as The North reclaimed the tag team titles, Su Yung defeated Deonna Purrazzo for the Knockouts title, and Rich Swann defeated Eric Young for the Impact World title. 

**********

The show opened with Eric Young and Rich Swann brawling backstage on their way to the ring. They brawled more in and around the ring until referees and security came down for the pull-apart. Young asked for his rematch now, but D’Amore wouldn’t give it to him just yet. Swann asked D’Amore to do it now too, and so…

Impact World Champion Rich Swann defeated Eric Young to retain

Swann was wrestling barefoot and in chinos. He was also recovering from a low blow that took place during the brawl. 

This was not much of a match. Young had control early on and worked over Swann, but soon after, Swann recovered, hit the lethal injection and the phoenix splash to retain his title. This must have gone about five minutes. 

We got the title rematch out of the way now, so both men can pursue whatever their direction will be after BFG.

- We saw Nevaeh and Havok backstage where Havok confirmed that Father James Mitchell has been brought back to life. They walked away and headed to D’Amore’s office with the rest of the Knockouts roster where they all wanted news about the soon to be revived Knockouts Tag Team Titles. D’Amore was not there. Kaleb with a K, however, let them know the company just announced online that a tournament will begin in three weeks. Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz made fun of Alisha Edwards for not having a tag partner, but Jordynne Grace was there to back her up and challenged Hogan and Steelz to a match.

Tommy Dreamer defeated Brian Myers in a Hardcore Halloween match

Dreamer was still wearing Road Warrior Animal face paint and spikes. He’s really getting some matches out of the haircut. These two have been feuding for about a month now based out of Myers’ lack of respect for Dreamer.

This was an okay time filler match. Dreamer ran wild early when they brawled around the ring, but once in the ring, Myers gained control. They hit each other with walkers, garbage cans, crutches, kendo sticks, and chairs, but there was nothing really Halloween about it.

Then, Dreamer pulled out a bag with candy corn and thumbtacks when he dropped Myers from the top rope. The fInish saw Swoggle sneak out of a garbage can and low blow Myers, setting Myers up perfectly for Dreamer to hit a DVD through a table for the pin.

Hopefully, this is the end of this feud.

- Gia Miller interviewed Rhino and Heath about what Rhino wanted for his title shot. He said that he and heath would be chasing the tag titles, but before that, they would go sign Heath’s contract. It was never brought up that Heath was legit hurt during Bound for Glory but it was made out to be obvious the two were covering something up.

- Reno Scum and Hernandez grabbed Fallah Bahh backstage to recover their money. Bahh told them he didn’t have the money anymore as he gave it to Bravo. After they left, Bahh revealed he still had the money.

XXXL (Acey Romero & Larry D) defeated The Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz)

Neither team was able to make it to the four-way tag title match for Bound For Glory, so commentary sold this as a start on that pursuit. 

The match saw XXXL dominate early on, working over Wentz with power moves. Xavier got the hot tag and ran wild over Romero, but eventually D joined in and cut off Xavier. The finish saw the Rascalz try to superplex D, but Romero broke it off, leaving Xavier down for D to finish him off with a top rope splash. 

Both teams have been trading wins for a while, so it’s still up in the air to see where they go. It would be nice for XXXL to mix it up with other teams.

- D’Amore met with Deonna Purrazzo, Kimber Lee, and "Barrister" R.D. Evan who was there to make an argument for Purrazzo to get the Knockouts championship stripped away from Su Yung and awarded back to her. D’Amore said he was headed to the ring to address this.

- Miller interviewed Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin. She asked about Shelley’s health update and he said he was hurting and would be hurt for a couple of months. Sabin added that once they’re healthy, they’ll be coming for the titles. XXXL interrupted them and said they deserved to be the No. 1 contenders since they have been running over the competition. MCMG told them to screw off because they had nothing for them, and so in return, XXXL squashed Shelley, injuring him further.

Deonna Purrazzo/Scott D'Amore segment

D’Amore, now in the ring, addressed the Knockouts championship situation. He explained that Evans and Purrazzo had threatened legal action, but that after having reviewed the situation, Su Yung was the rightful champion. 

Purrazzo, Lee, and Evans all walked out to the ring. Evans said that the only reason that Yung won the title was because something happened to Kylie Rae, likely at the hands of Yung herself, and thus Purrazzo had to wrestle an unknown competitor. Evans tried to make an argument that changing the title now would save Impact a lot of money, time, and problems.

D’Amore played the same game with Purrazzo, telling her that she could get her rematch next week and reclaim the title, or wait years for the court date and the process to find her in the right. This took too long to set up a title rematch that Purrazzo had the rights to anyway, but at least it was nice to see Evans on screen.

After all that, Yung walked down to the ring and put the mandible claw on both Evans and Lee, hit the poison mist on D’Amore, and then when Purrazzo tried to attack her, Yung locked in the claw on her as well.

- Backstage, Swann talked with The Rascalz and Willie Mack about having no days off now as a champion. Moose walked up to him and told him that he had the TNA World title and that made him no. 1 in the company. Moose talked trash. Swann got hot and wanted to fight, but instead Mack stood up to Moose. Swann headed to his locker room and came across Callihan and Shamrock, who also gave him threatening looks.

- We got a recap of Ken Shamrock’s Hall Of Fame induction, including brief clips of messages by Bas Rutten, Chael Sonnen, Bret Hart, Ariel Helwani, Mick Foley, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

- Ethan Page and Josh Alexander talked to some of the building security until the Good Brothers interrupted them. They talked some trash to each other before coming to blows.

- The Impact Plus Flashback Moment of the Week was Rohit Raju defending the X-Division title against Willie Mack at Victory Road 2020.

- Backstage, Raju was hosting a party for himself, but only Jimmy Jacobs showed up. Jacobs brought up that TJP had the match won, so Raju kicked out his only guest.

- Bravo confronted Bahh about him sending Hernandez out for him and told him he’d tell the truth to Hernandez. He shunned Bahh, saying that he was dead to him. By the way, Bahh’s attire for the wedding is a Ghostbusters Stay Puft marshmallow man sumo suit.

Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz defeated Jordynne Grace & Alisha Edwards

Even before the match, it became clear that Grace was not exactly excited about tagging with Edwards. 

The story of the match was that Grace and Edwards had a lot of trouble working together with Grace wanting to command the match, but Edwards didn't want to follow Grace’s instructions. So, Hogan and Steelz cut Edwards off for a large part of the match. Eventually Grace got the hot tag and was dominating by herself, but decided to tag in Edwards. This led to the finish where Edwards accidentally took out Grace with a splash. Steelz then rolled Edwards up for the pin. 

On commentary, they sold that Grace and Edwards were a good team, but I just didn’t see it. After the match, they confronted one another which ended up in a shoving match. I can now unfortunately see the “team that doesn’t get along” make it far in the tournament.

**********

- Mack was headed to his car when Moose jumped him from behind and dropped him with a belt shot.

- Taya Valkyrie met up with Rosemary before the wedding. She tried to warn Rosemary that Bravo had become a bit of a lunatic in the past few weeks. Rosemary said she had better plans for Bravo than leaving him at the altar.

- Matthews and Rayne ran down next week’s card: Chris Bey vs Trey Miguel, Purrazzo vs. Su Yung for the Knockouts title, Doc Gallows vs. Ethan Page, and Rich Swann and Eddie Edwards vs. Eric Young and Sami Callihan.

The Wedding of Rosemary and John E. Bravo

Everyone was wearing costumes. Father James Mitchell was there to officiate the wedding. 

The wedding went quick. Mitchell asked if anyone disagreed with the wedding and no one stood up. Bravo, in his vows, did some cutesy Halloween rhymes and threatened anyone that would ruin their day. Rosemary said that once she got a scent of Bravo’s virginal blood, she knew they were meant to be together and that no one from either realm would stop her from getting what she wanted.

They both said “I do” but as they were about to kiss for the first time, the lights went out. A gunshot was heard and when the lights came back on it was revealed that Bravo had been shot. Dreamer, still in full Road Warrior Animal makeup said, "Who shot Bravo? Nooooo!!!!"

This was far less eventful than I expected, but it seems that we are headed into a “Who shot Mr. Burns?” storyline with Bravo. Mitchell was fantastic as always.

Final thoughts:

This was an ok show, but not a strong one coming out of Bound For Glory, especially with the in-ring action. We got some hints for future directions of certain wrestlers, but nothing particularly big.
