Slammiversary Results & Reactions – 7/18/2020

The show opened with a video package in the same news reporting style as recent teases. It’s confirmed that Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson will appear, and that we are guaranteed a new World Champion.

1) Motor City Machine Guns def. The Rascalz. Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley returned to Impact to answer the open challenge. MCMG hit their double finisher on Dez for the win after a great back-and-forth battle. Based on this booking, it looks like MCMG are back in Impact to help build the tag division back up.

2) “Old School Rules” TNA World Heavyweight Championship Match: Moose (c) def. Tommy Dreamer. Moose brought out the TNA World Championship with a white strap. Lots of weapons were used, which was to Moose’s benefit when he shoved Dreamer’s face into a pile of thumbtacks. Moose hit the spear to retain via pinfall.

Outside, Johnny Swinger showed up and told the backstage interviewer to park his car.

3) Kylie Rae won the Knockouts #1 Contender’s Gauntlet Match. Kylie and Tasha Steelz opened the match, while the final four competitors featured Kylie, Kimber Lee, Rosemary, and Taya Valkyrie. Katie Forbes was the only surprise entrant, while John E. Bravo entered the match twice dressed as Taya and Rosemary. Kylie eliminated Taya to win.

The order of entrants went as follows:

  1. Tasha Steelz
  2. Kylie Rae
  3. John E. Bravo as Taya
  4. Kimber Lee
  5. Kiera Hogan
  6. Susie
  7. Katie Forbes
  8. Madison Rayne
  9. Havok
  10. Taya Valkyrie
  11. Alisha Edwards
  12. Nevaeh
  13. Rosemary
  14. Bravo as Rosemary

Heath Slater made his way out to the ring as a surprise to declare that he wants to take the final slot in the main event. Rohit Raju interrupted and engaged in a brawl. Slater ultimately stood tall and flashed his “free agent” shirt.

4) X-Division Championship Match: Chris Bey def. Willie Mack (c). Johnny Swinger was banned from ringside and never made an appearance. This match was on the shorter side, but it was sprint bell to bell. Bey hit a cutter on Bey to take the win and capture his first X-Division Title.

Backstage, Heath Slater reunited with Rhino as Scott D’Amore walked up. D’Amore made it known that Slater has not signed with Impact and is just a guest. Therefore, Slater needs to leave because this is a closed set. Rhino invited Slater to come back on Tuesday.

5) Tag Team Championship Match: The North (c) def. Sami Callihan & Ken Shamrock. Callihan and Shamrock worked together for a majority of the match, but fell apart at the end. It ultimately cost them as Alexander stole the win for The North.

After the match, Motor City Machine Guns interrupted The North’s promo to announce they will challenge for the Tag Team Championship this Tuesday on Impact.

6) Knockouts Championship Match: Deonna Purrazzo def. Jordynne Grace (c) to become the new champion. Purrazzo worked Grace’s arm throughout the match, while Grace used her power to keep Purrazzo grounded. The Vitruosa trapped the champ in a double arm lock to capture the title.

7) Impact World Championship Elimination Match: Eddie Edwards def. Ace Austin, Rich Swann, Eric Young & Trey. Rich Swann returned from injury to fill the first open spot, but then Eric Young returned as the former World Champion to make this a five-way again. The order of elimination went Trey, Eric Young, Rich Swann, and then Austin as Eddie Edwards captured the title for the second time in his career.

After, Gallows & Anderson made the save and took out Ace and Madman Fulton. The Good Brothers shared drinks with Eddie to end the show… And then an EC3 teaser aired to officially close it out. EC3 will be return on Tuesday’s Impact.

Impact Wrestling’s next pay-per-view will be Bound For Glory on October 24, 2020.
