Taya vs. Lacey Ryan: Ryan attacks with strikes, taking early control until she missed a springboard high cross. Taya then choked her out and laid the boots to her. She followed with clotheslines, an ass attack and then the double knees for 2. She maintained the heat, grounding the action and generally looking pissed off. Taya chokes her out, but Ryan fires back with strikes, a superkick, clotheslines and a dropkick. The knee strike follows and she then misses the slingshot elbow drop. Taya hits the curb stomp and the road to Valhalla finishes it. Taya defeated Lacey Ryan @ 5:47 via pin [**½] This was a nice and solid XPOSION match, with Evans showing good potential to the point I’d like to see her used again.

We go around the ring with Gabby interviewing Josh Mathews. Josh loves to spent time with his kid, living the dad life. His daughter comes to events and sees what her parents do for a living. He’s an avid golfer. He loves meeting the Impact fans, and is excited for the upcoming events in December and January. He loves watching Rayne (of course) as well as Eddie Edwards & Sami Callihan.
