6 Takeaways From Impact Wrestling 4/12

Impact Wrestling is building towards Rebellion on April 28th in Toronto. They presented a taped show from Windsor last night on Pursuit and Twitch.

The show was headlined by a mixed-gender tag team match pitting Impact World Champion Johnny Impact and Knockouts champion Taya Valkyrie against Brian Cage and Jordynne Grace.

6 Takeaways From Impact Wrestling 4/12:

Referee Screws Brian Cage Out Of Main Event Victory

  • Main Event: Johnny Impact & Taya Valkyrie defeated Brian Cage & Jordynne Grace

Just as Brian Cage looked like he had the champion right where he wanted him in this week’s main event, referee Johnny Bravo delivered a chop block to his leg. This allowed Impact to hit the shining wizard and pick up the win. Cage attempted to get revenge on the referee after the match but a low blow by Taya allowed the champion to once again deliver a post-match beatdown to the #1 contender.

Johnny Bravo and Taya Valkyrie hugged after the match and the Impact World champion gave the crooked-referee a professional handshake. With Impact Wrestling’s senior referee in his back pocket, is there any stopping Johnny Impact now?

Gail Kim Costs Tessa Blanchard Match Against Madison Rayne

  • Madison Rayne defeated Tessa Blanchard

Tessa Blanchard was far too concerned with Gail Kim’s presence at ringside than she was on her opponent, Madison Rayne this week. When Kim prevented Blanchard from using a steel chair against Rayne, the distraction was all Rayne needed to score the pinfall with a roll-up. Rayne is now 3-0 against Blanchard in Impact.

It’s clear Blanchard can’t move forward in the Knockouts division until she gets rid of Gail Kim. They will meet one-on-one in Toronto at Rebellion.

As for Rayne, she’ll move on to face Taya Valkyrie in non-title action next week.

Moose Continues To Dominate the Rascalz

  • Moose defeated Wentz (the Rascalz)

Moose has proved his dominance over the ragtag troupe of the Rascalz in recent weeks. He has invaded their smoking circle and physically assaulted them and he’s defeated them in the ring as well.

This week, Moose opened up the broadcast by defeating Wentz in single’s action. Moose will take on Dez next week.

Su Yung Takes Out Rosemary & Kiera Hogan

  • Su Yung vs Rosemary – No Contest

Rosemary and Su Yung met in single’s action this week but the match was thrown out after a brawl at ringside involving the undead bridesmaids broke out. Kiera Hogan had come to ringside which resulted in her and Rosemary arguing (Rosemary doesn’t want Hogan involved). This led to the scuffle at ringside with the zombie brides.

Yung hit Rosemary with the mandible claw and forced Kiera Hogan to watch as she delivered Panic Switch to her rival.

Yung was then curiously announced as the winner of the match despite having done no such thing.

OVE Visit Baltimore

Sami Callihan, Madman Fulton, and the rest of OVE cut a promo from Rich Swann’s hometown of Baltimore this week. It was announced last week that Callihan and Swann will clash one-on-one at Rebellion for the X-Division championship. With the gigantic Fulton now backing him up, Callihan has never been more dangerous.

The North Have Arrived In The Tag Team Division

  • the North defeated El Reverso & Sheldon Jean

“All Ego” Ethan Page and “the Walking Weapon” Josh Alexander have joined forces in Impact Wrestling. The two Canadian wrestlers will wrestle under the team name “the North.”

All Ego” Ethan Page and “the Walking Weapon” Josh Alexander have joined forces in Impact Wrestling. The two Canadian wrestlers will wrestle under the team name “the North.”

Quick Results:

  • Moose beat Wentz (Rascalz)
  • Su Yung vs Rosemary – No Contest
  • the North defeated El Reverso & Sheldon Jean
  • Madison Rayne defeated Tessa Blanchard
  • Main Event: Johnny Impact & Taya Valkyrie defeated Brian Cage & Jordynne Grace
