IMPACT! On AXS TV continues to be one of the best weekly wrestling shows out there. This week features the return of the legendary Jazz to a professional wrestling ring as well as Chris Bey vs Willie Mack and Rohit Raju defending against Crazzy Steve in two well-built TV matches. Let’s preview the action and get you up to speed with the stories in IMPACT.
After a short spell on the sidelines, Alex Shelley returns as the MCMG regroup and attempt to regain the IMPACT Tag Team Championships. Before that though they have a list of teams they want to get revenge on. First up is XXXL. Despite not having much luck so far in their IMPACT tenure XXXL have adopted an attitude that’s made them meaner and more merciless than ever.
X-Division Championship: Rohit Raju (C) vs Crazzy Steve
Last week Crazzy Steve and TJP pulled one over on Raju by having Steve don the Suicide gear which of course Raju believed to be TJP. TJP showed up to distract a very shocked Raju which allowed Steve to get a win over the champion. This week they meet for the title with no trickery involved, that we know of, Raju will have to focus on his opponent or risk losing the title.
Knockouts Tag Team Title Tournament – Jazz & Jordynne Grace vs Killer Kelly & Renee Michelle
Last week IMPACT! shocked the wrestling fanbase by revealing that the retired Jazz would be Jordynne Grace’s tag team partner in this tournament. Killer Kelly and Renee Michelle are talented performers but they have a tough task on their hands if they want to beat Grace and Jazz. Expect to see the powerhouses progress here.
Chris Bey vs Willie Mack
These two are no stranger to facing one another. Just months ago Bey defeated Mack for the X-Division Championship. Now Bey has his sights on the IMPACT World Championship, held by Mack’s friend Rich Swann. Last week Bey tried to suck up to Swann and get a shot but stuck his foot in his mouth. Now he faces Swann’s friend Mack in a match that’s sure to have title implications.
