You know for a Show this week that only gave us three Matches I thought Impact was good this week! LAX vs Lucha Bros starting off the Show brawling, beating down Security, while both teams got their hits loved every bit of that. Full Metal Mayhem is going to be insane at Rebellion can't wait!
Scarlett Bordeaux vs. Disco Inferno: Well I didn't expect a five star classic between these two, but I thought the Match was solid. As the Match went on, people starting to get into more especially when Disco was manhandling Scarlett and being an asshole in the Ring at times. Scarlett got the win though does this mean the last of Disco, or will his mouth get him another Match with Scarlett? If this was Andy Kaufman doing this, it would of been mega, but so far it's been pretty mild so far.
Madison Rayne returning next week yeahhh..no I could care less about her return. Madison hasn't been Madison since Gail Kim returning to Impact the second time around. No one cared about her leaving or his last feud before leaving not sure if people are going to get behind her as a face, but as a heel..it has a shot.
I thought the Gail/Tessa Segment is what I wanted and more. Tessa taking shots at Gail and talking about "her era", as she is coming off like the best spoiled brat like only she can. Gail returning is a good thing if she's there to put over Tessa and it's official for Rebellion. I have my hopes we get a Street Fight between the two.
oVe Segment with Madman Fulton, now if only Bray Wyatt was Sami he wouldn't be a punchline these days. I got some Clockwork Orange vibes with that Segment I gotta say which is a good thing.
Taya Valkyrie vs Jordynne Grace: At times the Match was felt, but the people got behind Grace and the Match was just starting to get lit till Taya pulled the injury card seeing Grace was too much for her. Grace had it as the Match went on and Taya saw that, problem is that is not going to save next time around when the Knockouts Title is on the line!
Cage vs Kross. I really liked how their wrapped what happened with Grace and Taya into the Main Event! It took Kross mugging Cage before the Match, using it to his advantage to beat Cage. It wasn't easy no doubt, and it shows with Cage that if the attack didn't happen, Kross would of had a harder time winning no doubt. A good Match I felt both guys can beat and brawl the other and both guys looked great in this Match.
IT WAS ROSEMARY...IT WAS ME THE WHOLE TIME!
Kevin Sullivan of people as the Master of the Undead Realm yeah that fits so well. You gotta give Impact credit once again for being ballsy enough to kill off a character, not knowing if Allie will ever return to their Company. This is the first time Impact has done something risky like this, anyone remember when LAX and the OGz were feuding a kid nearly got killed on a Driveby? How about when Mickie got pushed onto a Train Track when a Train was coming, seemly looking like she was killed off too? Rosemary with the help of Kiera did all they can to save Allie's Soul, but it was Allie sacrificing herself for her best friend. That is the first time I've seen Rosemary shed any tears, but I imagine now that Allie is dead, Rosemary will not stop till Su Yung, Mitchell, and Sullivan are all dead!
I've been so busy these past few weeks sorry for not posting the write up for Impact, but even though Impact wasn't as good as last week it was still a solid Show. Moose is now 2-0 vs The Rascalz as even in a well paced Match, it was still entertaining watch Moose play with Wentz throughout the Match.
Su Yung vs Rosemary. It's more and more noticeable to me that Rosemary needs time off. She's still not healthy, and you see it in this Match she is so slow in Matches, and you can kinda see her walking with a limp at times. The Rosemary I saw in a Monster's Ball Match and Cage Match vs today are two different Wrestlers. I can easily see Su Yung beating Rosemary making her go on break and that's when you slide in Kiera Hogan. Give Rosemary 4-6 Months time off to get healthy and come back stronger than ever. She is a shell of true self right now.
I love the Segment Kross had with Willie Mack. He's stirring the Pot trying to get Mack to turn on Swann, and if Kross gets his way and Mack opens up his third eye he just very well listen and turn on Swann down the road!
The North vs Sheldon Jean & El Reverso. With what I saw from the North I wonder why didn't Impact sign Alexander sooner? Page has been floundering in Impact for quite some time and he looks to be finding his niche right now with his buddy and partner Alexander. It should be interesting how they fair up with teams like LAX, and the Lucha Bros in the future, but good stuff here, but the only hindrance is Jean and El Reverso getting in too much for a new Tag Team I feel.
Rayne vs Blanchard. Rayne is 2 for 2 in terms of good matches since returning and 3-0 on Tessa which is crazy thinking about how good Tessa has been since arriving in Impact herself. Tessa I never seen have a bad Match lately, and this was a good one as Tessa's overconfidence and arrogant came to bite her once again. I dug the Commentary Gail was doing as well, she doesn't like the new age of girls who think they are hot shit. She wants them to take the torch ladies like Gail and Rayne did and keep it going, and not let that fame and fortune make it seem like they are better than others. It's still funny though Gail back in the day especially when she was a heel would of loved to have Tessa as her number 2. Gail and Rayne were great together as a heel group, I have no doubt they would of done well together as a group. Still even with a finish another good build towards their Match at Rebellion.
Grace/Cage vs Impact/Taya. The crooked ref finish now explains Kross’ disputed win over Cage from a few weeks back. The match was good and fun and added well to the build to the two PPV title matches.
