The Influence vs. Taylor Wilde, Jordynne Grace, and Rachael Ellering

Taylor Wilde has had her issues with The Influence for weeks now. Her issues started on the August 12 edition of IMPACT on AXS TV when Madison Rayne made her return to IMPACT. Rayne interfered with Wilde’s match against Tenille Dashwood, costing Wilde the match. The Influence officially formed shortly after that, with Kaleb with a K rounding out the group. They defeated Wilde in a 3-on-1 handicap match last week on IMPACT. They continued to beat her down after the match until help arrived. Jordynne Grace and Rachael Ellering hit the ring to even the score, setting up for the match this week. Wilde now has the chance to get revenge on The Influence this week on IMPACT.

Josh Alexander X-Division Title Open Challenge

Josh Alexander retained his X-Division Championship over Jake Something at Emergence. He reflected on his win last week on IMPACT and has issued an open challenge for his next competitor. Any former X-Division Champion is able to challenge Alexander this week on IMPACT. There is no shortage of former champions currently on the roster including Chris Sabin, Chris Bey, Rohit Raju, Eddie Edwards, Ace Austin, Willie Mack, and Rich Swann. Could we see one of them challenge for the title? Could a former champion who is now a part of the All Elite Wrestling roster like Brian Cage answer the call? Find out this week on IMPACT!
