*We head to Swinger’s Palace where they check the odds for Sabin vs. Moose. Alisha pitches a Team Swinger’s Palace for Homecoming which Swinger loves. W.

The 411
This was a really good show with constant quality. IMPACT has a good group of stars that are featured each week, especially with the inclusion of outside talent. The show feels bigger with fans and genuine stars that know how to utilize the atmosphere properly. Good show here with notable moments and compelling story progression.
