Impact Wrestling results: Willie Mack vs. Chris Bey

Impact Wrestling results: Willie Mack vs Chris Bey

Impact Wrestling returns from Nashville, TN for this week’s episode.

Opening video recapped the conclusion of the John E. Bravo investigation and trial, Rich Swann defending the title against Ken Shamrock, and the consequent attack on Eddie Edwards by Callihan and Shamrock.

The Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) defeated XXXL (Acey Romero & Larry D) 

About a month ago, XXXL re-injured Alex Shelley as a statement that they were serious about chasing the tag team titles. Last week, Shelley announced that he was cleared to wrestle and they are here for revenge. 

Good speed vs. power match. MCMGs had early advantage, displaying their tag team proficiency. All good action. XXXL cut off Shelley and worked over him for a couple of minutes before Sabin got the hot tag. Last few minutes were great, with both teams getting a chance to hit their double team moves. MCMGs hit skulls and bones for the win.

Shelley and Sabin could either go back to the tag title scene, or keep feuding with XXXL, who shouldn’t be happy about this loss.

- Josh Matthews and Madison Rayne ran down tonight's card.

- We saw Sami Callihan and Ken Shamrock arrive at the arena, but Scott D’Amore and security were there to greet them. D’Amore told Shamrock that he was suspended for attacking an official last week when he took out D’Lo Brown.

- Backstage, John E. Bravo confronted Larry D about shooting him. D attacked Bravo, but Tommy Dreamer jumped in to break it up. Dreamer tried to get Larry D to deal with the Bravo situation. Instead, D took out Dreamer.

Jordynne Grace & Jazz defeated Killer Kelly & Renee Michelle in a Knockouts Tag Team Championship Tournament first round match.

Renee Michelle is making her in-ring debut tonight, while we saw Killer Kelly take a loss last week against Kimber Lee. Likewise, Jazz made her return last week announcing that she was teaming up with Grace on the tournament. Michelle and Killer Kelly look like stars.

The match initially gave us a promising tease of a Grace vs. Killer Kelly match. Jazz was portrayed as a total dominant force when paired up with Michelle. 

Match saw a basic formula with Grace getting cut off from her corner, being worked on until she made a short comeback to tag in Jazz, who came in and ran wild against the competition. Finish saw Michelle save Killer Kelly from getting pinned after a Grace driver, only for her to tag in and take an X-Factor by Jazz for the pin. Ok match. While a bit slower than the others, Jazz looked good in the ring. 

Jazz and Jordynne Grace advance in the tournament and will be wrestling Havok and Neveah in the semi finals.

- Impact+ flashback moment of the week was the Motor City Machine Guns vs. Generation Me in a Full Metal Mayhem match from Final Resolution 2010.

- Ethan Page cut a promo saying that everyone likes messing with him and accepted that he was the one that took out Doc Gallows. He challenged Karl Anderson to a match at Final Resolution, and if he wins, he and Josh Alexander get a shot at the tag titles. Good promo.

- Somewhere backstage, Alisha Edwards was waiting for Sami Callihan. Tenille Dashwood and Kaleb with a K were there trying to talk to her, but Edwards had her focus on Callihan, who she attacked as soon as he walked by. Edwards was pulled off by security while Dashwood and Kaleb walked away.

Johnny Swinger vs Cody Deaner (with Cousin Jake) ended in a no contest

This was your weekly midcard match that got interrupted by Eric Young and Joe Doering. Swinger tried to make friends with Doering, but was still taken out. Young said that they will continue this until ‘we’ learn that this world belongs to them. I really don’t know what he’s talking about.

- Deonna Purrazzo and Kimber Lee approached Father James Mitchell to ask if he had already taken care of Su Yung. Mitchell said that these things take time and that he didn’t even know where Su Yung was, to which Purrazzo said she knew how to find her.

- Backstage, the Deaners talked in the locker room about having to do something about EY and Doering. Cody Deaner said this wasn’t a ‘we’ problem, he was the one that had to do something about EY  next week.

- Purrazzo and  Lee came down to the ring and called out Su Yung to come down to the ring if she wanted her contractual rematch. The trap was set and when she got to the ring, out came Father James Mitchell. 

Mitchell cut a promo on Yung, saying that she had been a thorn in his side for too long. Tonight, she’d pay for her sins. Mitchell summoned Yung’s bridesmaids, who surrounded the ring. Purrazzo and Lee couldn’t wait and attacked Su Yung, leaving her for the bridesmaids to take her away. 

- Moose approached Chris Bey about Bey’s tactics to get himself a World title match. Moose told Bey that if he were to win, Moose would take the title from him.

- Gia Miller interviewed Karl Anderson about Ethan Page’s challenge. Anderson accepted the match because he was out there to take revenge for what he did to Gallows.

X Division Champion Rohit Raju defeated Crazzy Steve to retain the title

Crazzy Steve won himself a title shot against Raju last week when he fought under the Suicide mask and got a quick roll-up after a distraction from TJP. 

Match was a clash of styles, where Raju had a lot of trouble countering Steve’s unorthodox style until he managed to cut him off and keep him down with constant kicks and knees, focusing on Steve’s arm. Eventually, Steve powered up and made a comeback, getting a decent near fall with a Koji clutch. Soon after, Raju scored a roll-up and grabbed the ropes for the win. This was surprisingly good for Crazzy Steve.

- Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz revealed that they still had Hernandez’s money. Fallah Bahh approached them about this. When Hogan and Steelz tried to pretend they didn’t, Bahh said he went back and watched the show, and so Hogan and Steelz had to accept they had indeed stolen the money.

They said they didn’t have the money, but that they’d give it to him next week. I hope we are done with this story.

- TJP approached Crazzy Steve and once again, Brian Myers walked by and made fun of them. TJP challenged Myers to a match next week.

- Matthews and Rayne announced next week’s matches, including Eric Young vs. Cody Deaner, Brain Myers vs. TJP, Josh Alexander vs. Chris Sabin, and Deonna Purrazzo & Kimber Lee vs. Taya and Rosemary in the Knockouts Tag Team title tournament. 

Willie Mack defeated Chris Bey

In the last couple of weeks, Chris Bey has been trying to get a title shot from Rich Swann, and last week, he happened to talk trash to Willie Mack, which led to this match. 

Bey worked over Mack’s leg after he caught him with a low dropkick while Mack was in between the ropes on the apron. Bey dominated most of the match, with the exception of a couple of small comebacks that Mack initiated. The finish, which came out of nowhere, saw Bey go for his finish but Mack blocked, hit a pop-up forearm and landed the stunner for the win. Good match, mostly because of Bey. Seems like a really bad decision to pin Bey right before he goes and challenges for the title.

After the match, Moose came in and hit the lights out on Mack, which brought out Rich Swann, who ran off Moose. Out of nowhere, Chris Bey jumped in with the art of finesse and took out Swann. Bey posed with the title as the show went off the air.

Final thoughts -- 

Okay show, it went by fast. Most of the storyline developments were to build Final Resolution.
