Last night, not only did WWE return to the scene with its own PPV (WrestleMania Backlash), but Impact Wrestling also gave life to a new series of TV tapings that follow what was seen the previous day in Under Siege. We remind you that the results below are not complete and do not include the various backstage segments available only and exclusively through the normal viewing of the episode on AXS TV or by subscription on the YouTube channel to the Impact Ultimate Insiders service.
Now let's see what happened in the Promowest Pavillon in Newport, KY a little less than twenty-four hours ago. Crazzy Steve defeated Zicky Dice in a match allegedly recorded for Before The Impact. Honor No More member Kenny King later overtook Bullet Club member Chris Bey in a one on one match.
The Impact Knockouts Tag Team Champions, The Influence took revenge on the result from Under Siege and defeated the team made up of Progress Wrestling women's champion, Gisele Shaw and Alisha. Impact World Champion, Josh Alexander and his past challenger, Tomohiro Ishii, defeated two members of the Bullet Club, its leader Jay White and NJPW multiple Jr division champion, El Phantasmo.
Eric Young instead overtook Chris Sabin in the Gauntlet for the Gold finale and thus earned the shot valid for the world title in the Slammiversary main event.
Impact Wrestling gives a show
Last month, at Slammiversary, Eric Young made his return to Impact Wrestling after four years away, having spent the prior 12 as a mainstay in the company where he became a Triple Crown Champion.
This is the third main event in the same PPV for Eric after that of 2015 valid for the King of the Mountain Championship and 2020 valid for the world title. Mike Bailey surpassed Laredo Kid by earning access to Slammiversary's Ultimate X.
We do not yet know if this competition will see the X-Division title up for grabs as it did during Multiverse of Matches, or will only include the possibility of becoming the new # 1 contender to the belt. Returning Mia Yim along with AAA Reina de Reinas Champion Taya Valkyrie and Grand Slam Champion Jordynne Grace defeated Impact Knockoust World Champion Tasha Steelz, Deonna Purrazzo and Savannah Evans.
The Good Brothers put an exclamation point on Honor No More by overtaking OGK, former ROH World Champion, Matt Taven and former X-Division Champion, Mike Bennett. Finally, Masha Slamovich continues her series of matches against local athletes and surpasses Shawna Reed.
