October 6, 2019
Las Vegas, NV
Full Recap: https://www.f4wonline.com/news/impact-w ... out-294081

Tenille Dashwood vs Madison Rayne vs Kiera Hogan - 4/10

Hogan and Rayne have a past of working together, so they naturally teamed up against Tenille for the length of the match. As expected, it was a matter of time before Hogan and Rayne had problems deciding who would pin Tenille, which gave Tenille time to take out Hogan, hit her finisher on Rayne, and pin her. Not a good match, Tenille has terrible facial expressions. 

Eddie Edwards needs a partnet - Backstage, Eddie Edwards is seen talking with someone about their history, and it turns out he’s talking to Dreamer. Eddie tells Dreamer he was drugged last week and he knows because he actually watched last week’s episode! Dreamer said that tonight he has Eddie’s back, but then for the swerve, Eddie had been talking to his kendo stick. 

Johnny Swinger vs Owen Trevor - Squash
This is Swinger’s debut versus local talent Owen Trevor. Swinger is an encyclopedia of dirty heel tactics, all he did between stomps and clotheslines was every heel tactic in the book. Swinger won with a Swinging Neckbreaker. Total squash, I have to imagine Swinger is here to get destroyed sooner or later. 

The North Interview - Backstage, Gabby Loren interviewed The North about defending the championships against Swann and Willie Mack at Bound For Glory. They said that they’ll prevail, but then Gabby drop the news that Rhino and RVD have been added to the match.

Tessa Blanchard Interview - Gabby Loren interviewed Tessa Blanchard about Callihan’s actions last week. Tessa said that no one should be surprised about how dangerous Callihan. Tessa said that she is on a mission since Slammiversary and that everyone in oVe has a target on their backs. 

Impact Plus Moment of the Week was Kurt Angle vs Bobby Roode from Bound For Glory 2013.

Ace/Alisha Skit - Meh, the usual stuff. Ace Austin looked for Alisha. He wanted to talk about what happened at the wedding and said he was concerned about Eddie’s personal problems, pretending Eddie has substance problems. It was the usual sleazy Ace Austin skit.

Eddie Edwards and Kenny The Stick vs Reno Scum - 6.5/10
Kenny is indeed the kendo stick and that’s how Eddie was introduced to the match. Lester got ripped since the last time we saw him on Impact.

Reno Scum worked over Eddie for a while, then Eddie hit a desperation Release Suplex to finally tag in the stick, which really just consisted to Eddie hitting both Scum members with the stick, which I guess makes the use of the kendo stick legal?

Eddie won with the Boston Knee Party on Thornstowe. Aside from the stick stupidity, this was a good handicap match. 

The North attack Konnan - Simple and awesome. Backstage, The North go to Konnan’s locker room. Konnan knows exactly why they’re there, takes a sip of tequila as Page closes the door behind them. The implications and Konnan’s face reaction made him look like a tough SOB.

Back from commercial, Jimmy Jacobs, Swann, and Mack are all looking over Konnan, who is knocked out. 

Sami Callihan Promo - oVe came down to the ring, security is surrounding the ring. Callihan took the mic and explained that what happened to Melissa was an accident and a tragedy. Impact management demanded he came out to apologize and he did. He read his passive-aggressive written apology, but before he could end, Cage interrupted. Cage destroyed some security, hit an apron bomb on Jake Crist, an F-5 on Dave Crist, and a huge powerbomb on Fulton. Callihan tried to run through the fans when a ‘fan’ tapped Cage on the back, and blinded by his rage, Cage slammed the fan. Management came down and Las Vegas police arrested Cage for attacking a civilian. Crowd popped for Cage’s rampage, but were not happy with the arrest angle. 

Jake Crist joined commentary for the following match.

Bound For Glory X-Division Ladder Qualifier Match
Daga vs Chris Bey - 7/10
This was fast paced action, Chris Bey is really good at what he does, he's your quintessential indie flippy guy, but he's really good, perfect for the division. Daga is awesome without having to say it. Finish was Daga hitting a Spanish Fly and a Double Underhook Driver for the win. Great short match, I really hope they bring Chris Bey back.

Post-match - Jake Crist got in the ring and got face to face with Daga. Dave Crist came down and attacked Daga along with his brother, but Tessa Blanchard came down for the save and ran off both Crist brothers. No mention of the real life relationship of Daga and Tessa, which I appreciated.

TJP Interview - Backstage, TJP and Fallah Bahh were talking shop and preparing for tonight’s main event where TJP faces off with Elgin. Gabby Loren approached them asking TJP how he was feeling about tonight’s match. TJP said this isn’t his first time against a heavyweight. 

Moose vs Ken Shamrock Press Conference - We got a package of Josh Matthews and the Las Vegas NFL Alumni members talking about the Shamrock vs Moose match. We got a Stephen Bonnar cameo. Moose wearing a fantastic suit announced that he is training with Frank Trigg. Ken Shamrock walked up and got face to face with Moose. They talked trash and when they were supposed to answer questions from the media, Moose cancelled and was walking out before Moose cheap shot Shamrock, there was a big pull apart. This was a good MMA media day style skit, which would have been awesome if we couldn’t see that they were in a mall.

Taya seeks out Havok - Somewhere in the Undead Realm, James Mitchell is berating Havok for pissing off Su Yung. Mitchell told Havok that the Master is mad his favorite bride got hurt. Taya walked up to them and asked Havok to take out Tenille Dashwood, and if she did, Havok could take Tenille’s spot at Bound For Glory. James Mitchell said that they don’t need to go through Dashwood when they can just take the title right there and now. Taya ran away. 

Michael Elgin vs TJP (w/Fallah Bahh) - 8/10
This was the big man vs small man match up. Story was mostly that TJP had counters and escapes for everything Elgin had, who in return just relied on getting a hold of TJP in order to hurt him. Finish eventually came with one of Elgin's OP combos with him countering an Armbreaker into a Buckle Bomb, Backfist, and Elgin Bomb for the win. It was a great match, I was really surprised by how much offense TJP had in this match. I would love to see this match on a bigger stage.

Callihan approaches Melissa Santos - Show ending saw Melissa Santos talking on the phone as she was on her way to bail out Cage. Callihan interrupted her and told her that everything was an accident, but teased Melissa that it felt good to hit her with the bottle. 

OVERALL THOUGHTS
Good show for Impact, the action inside the ring for the most part delivered. Storyline wise, the show focused on heating up the feuds, but not big developments.
