Impact Wrestling 9/13 took place from Mexico City and featured a main event of Sami Callihan and Jake Crist against Tessa Blanchard and Tommy Dreamer in a street fight.
Here are 8 Takeaways from Impact Wrestling 9/13:
RVD & Rhino Provide Back Up For Tessa Blanchard & Dreamer
Sami Callihan has a title match coming up on October 20th at Bound for Glory in Chicago. He’s still deep into a tense rivalry with Tessa Blanchard, however. Callihan picked up the win in this week’s main event after delivering a piledriver to Tommy Dreamer, the same move he used to pin Tessa Blanchard twice.
After the match, OVE tried to use the numbers advantage to continue the onslaught on Dreamer and Blanchard but Rhino and RVD made the save.
Michael Elgin Wants Marufuji At Bound For Glory
Michael Elgin defeated AAA Minis champion Dinastia this week. Elgin didn’t use his normal Elgin bomb to get the win, however. Instead, Elgin delivered an “Emerald Flowsion” a move associated with Naomichi Marufuji.
After the match, Elgin cut a promo about how he beat the best of the best in Japan but he never got to face Marufuji. Elgin then put down the challenge for Marufuji for Bound for Glory October 20th in Chicago.
Dr. Wagner Isn’t Retired Yet
Impact will co-promote an event from MSG’s Hulu Theatre Sunday night. Dr. Wagner Jr. is scheduled to face Blue Demon Jr. on the show.. Tonight, Wagner Jr. got in the ring with Texano Jr. and picked up the victory after delivering the Wagner driver.
Eddie Edwards Sends Ace Austin To The Hospital (With His Wife)
Eddie Edwards has had a lot of personal and professional issues to overcome throughout the last year and a half in Impact Wrestling. He’s currently dealing with 22-year-old blue-chipper Ace Austin trying to have “relations” with his wife.
This week Austin and Edwards met in single’s action. Edwards couldn’t contain himself during the match, however, and took a chair to Austin’s arm, leading to the disqualification. Eddie kept up the beating after the match, even turning his attention to referees and security who tried to break it up.
Later on, Alisha Edwards was tending to Ace Austin as he was being loaded into an ambulance. As Alisha left in the ambulance with Austin, she turned to Eddie and said “You’re not my husband, you’re a cheating bastard!” as Austin made pelvic thrusting motions inside the ambulance.
Mahabali Shera Returns, Aligns With The Great Gama Singh & Desi Hit Squad
Things had not been going well for the Desi Hit Squad as of late leading up to this. The team had dropped an important match to Cody Deaner and Cousin Jake, leading to them having to go work on the Deaner compound. They then had to wrestle this match against Big Mami and Nino Hamburguesa while wearing overalls.
After the match, the Desi Hit Squad would get the last laugh, however. Mahabali Shera returned to the organization and took out the Deaners. He then aligned with Gama Singh and the other members of the Desi Hit Squad to end the segment.
Tenille Dashwood Defeats Kiera Hogan
In the opener this week, Tenille Dashwood picked up a win against Kiera Hogan. Dashwood has previously said in promos that she does not plan to start at the bottom and wants a shot at Taya Valkyrie’s title sooner rather than later. Her win against Hogan this week could put her closer to making that title shot happen.
Hogan’s Frenemy Madison Rayne wasn’t pleased with the result:
One More Match For LAX
Despite losing to the North in a match which had their Impact careers on the line, LAX aren’t quite gone from the promotion yet. This week, LAX agreed to face Willie Mack and Rich Swann in another match for the promotion so they can tear down the house one last time. Konnan agreed to speak with management to make the match happen next week.
