Violent By Design are your new IMPACT World Tag Team Champions. A shocking turn of events on Thursday night, as the originally scheduled tag team title match between the champions FinJuice and the team of Ace Austin and Madman Fulton, ended with the champions retaining. But after that, Violent By Design officially called their shot as they cashed in the Call Your Shot trophy. Rhino and Joe Doering would stop the quick flurry by the bamboozled champions to win the match and the gold.

Juice Robinson and David Finlay were understandably shell-shocked by the announcement as the New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) knew nothing of the trophy. When the referee informed them that they were going to have to wrestle at that very moment, they had no choice but to try and fight their way out of it. Doering would clean them both out with a crossbody, which signaled the beginning of the end for the champions. Rhino would hit a Gore on Finlay which was then followed up by Doering, who hit a clothesline on Robinson that turned him inside out. That would be all for FinJuice as Violent By Design ended the show on top.
Many had forgotten that Rhino won the Call Your Shot trophy back on Oct. 24, 2020, at Bound For Glory. Fans believed it was going to be eventually used so that he and Heath could win the tag team titles, but with Heath injured and Rhino joining Violent By Design, this was the perfect time to use it and win gold.
