– We get highlights from last week’s show.

– Johnny Impact arrives, looking for Eli Drake and then heading to the ring. He calls out Drake, wanting revenge and wanting his title shot right now. KM arrives and TRIES to talk, saying Drake is still in Mexico. Impact calls bullshit, calls KM a liar and a douche rocket. KM claims he’s undefeated, he’s not, and wants a match. Impact agreed to put his title shot on the line.

Johnny Impact vs. KM: Impact hits a superkick and running shooting star press. KM cuts him off and then got in way too much offense considering he’s been a complete job guy and Sienna’s man bitch. Impact fires back, hits a leg lariat and leg drop, covering for 2. KM gets a roll up, uses the ropes but the ref saw it and broke the count. Impact takes him out with a kick and hits the Thursday night delight for the win. Johnny Impact defeated KM @ 2:58 via pin [NR]

– Pagano meets with a mystery figure, telling him that he knows what to do.

Ava Storie vs. Taya Valkyrie: I recently Ranked The Impact Knockouts Roster, and spoke about both ladies in that column. Storie is a plucky little babyface, she tries to get the crowd behind her, but Taya quickly takes control. Taya lays in the boots, and hit the road to Valhalla for the win. Taya Valkyrie defeated Ava Storie @ 1:20 via pin [NR]

– Valkyrie informs us that lucha royalty is here, and she wants the knockouts title. Rosemary now arrives, looking for some revenge from a few weeks back. Rosemary finds it amusing that Valkyrie thinks she deserves a title shot before she does. Rosemary attacks, and Sienna arrives and breaks it up and works over Rosemary. Valkyrie gets involved, we get arguing and more fighting. Allie now arrives and helps Rosemary, evening the odds. Taryn is now here, taking out Allie and the heels take control. Gail Kim then arrives and evens the odds, she clears the ring and the faces stand tall.

– Back to Mexico as oVe arrives at LAX’s clubhouse. oVe gets taken to the VIP room, but Konnan sends the boys to meet with them. They argue and oVe want a title shot, and they agree to a match for next week.

– We get clips from global forged, as they look for the next star.

– Allie, Kim, &Rosemary are interviewed backstage. Rosemary is delightfully insane, as she details how she wants to kill Taya, Sienna, & Taryn.

– Petey Williams talks about facing off with Trevor Lee.

– We get a Bound for Glory video package.

– We now see Grado making his first appearance for Park, Park, & Park; working AIW. He’s making bank on gimmick sales.

Eddie Edwards and EC3 vs. Pagano and El Hijo del Fantasma: This is fallout from last week, as Fantasma lost to EC3 and then attacked him along with Pagano. Edwards made the save like a nice young lad. EC3 doesn’t fuck around, walking to the ring with a purpose. Edwards and Fantasma in to begin, they work a fun back and forth opening stretch. EC3 tags in and immediately looks for some revenge, beating down Fantasma. He then attacks Pagano, but Fantasma attacks and cuts him off. He and Pagano start to work quick tags, and take the heat on EC3. Double teams follow, with Pagano hitting a running blockbuster for 2. EC# finally manages a clothesline tooth, Fantasma pulls Edwards to the floor, allowing Pagano to keep control. EC3 again battles back, hits the TKO and Edwards gets the hot tag. Edwards runs wild, hits Fantasma with the backpack stunner and it breaks down, with EC3 sending Pagano to the floor. Pagano and EC3 brawl on the floor, no count as Edwards hits a blue thunder bomb on Fantasma. Texano arrives, attacks Edwards and hoist a powerbomb; Fantasma covers Edwards for the win. Pagano and El Hijo del Fantasma defeated Eddie Edwards and EC3 @ 7:12 via pin

– The AAA guys do the big beat down until James Storm makes the save. He clears out the AAA guys, and stares down with old foe EC3. Storm and Edwards shake hands, and then Storm bails, not shaking EC3’s hand.

– Johnny Impact runs into Fantasma & Texano, saying that Drake is still in Mexico. Texano doesn’t like Impact, bad mouths him and says he will defend his title shot against Texano tonight. Johnny Impact isn’t a very smart man.

Kongo Kong vs. Mahabali Shera: They attack at the bell, running into each other but Kong hits a corner splash and belly to belly for 2. Kong continues his attack; Shera does something resembling selling and fights back. He hits corner splashes, Shera sort of hits a springboard attack, basically landing on Kong’s feet. Kong hits a head butt, cannonball and top rope splash for the win. Kongo Kong defeated Mahabali Shera @ 3:55 via pin

– Eli Drake is in Mexico, and cuts a promo on Johnny Impact, noting that he went to Impact’s house (AAA) to show he was a real champion.

– We get a video package, featuring Moose talking about his issues with Lashley. Moose thought Lashley was a real man, but he will drag his ass back to the ring to get payback from last week.

Johnny Impact vs. Texano: They brawl to begin, they have a lot of history feuding and working with each other in the ring. Impact picks up the pace, hitting a trio of neck breakers and covering for 2. Impact heads up top, but Texano avoids the Thursday night delight and hits a leg lariat. Impact tries to fight back, but gets kicked to the floor. Post break, Texano keeps the heat, working over Impact on the floor. Back in the ring they go, and Texano grounds the action, working an inverted figure four. Texano hits a big slam, tries to head up top but Impact superkicks him to the floor and follows with an asai moonsault. Back in the ring and they trade strikes, Impact fires up and dropkicks Texano to the floor. Impact follows, but Texano cuts him off and slams him to the apron. Backing and Texano hits the senton atomico for 2. Impact crotches Texano, hits a step up kick but Texano keeps fighting. Impact hits a series of kicks, the snap German and starship pain for the win. Johnny Impact defeated Texano @ 14:45 via pin

– Taya. Sienna, & Taryn rant to Karen, and now set for next week…

– Laurel Van Ness is in the crowd, looking a mess again and apparently looking for a man.

– Back to Mexico for Champion Eli Drake vs. Máscara de Bronce From AAA in Mexico. I liked that they teased this the whole show, attempting to make this a big deal. I have said before, anytime the company can get their talent in front of bigger crowds in a bigger building is a good way to make them look like bigger stars. Drake dominated and looked like a star, which was the goal of this segment.

– End scene.

– Thanks for reading.
