Impact Wrestling 9/20

Impact Wrestling 9/20 emanated from Mexico City, Mexico and featured the last match in Impact for LAX. They faced Willie Mack & Rich Swann in the main event.

Here are 8 takeaways from Impact Wrestling 9/20.

8LAX Wrestle Their Last Match For Impact Wrestling

Santana and Ortiz are off to AEW after having dominated the Impact tag team division. They are the longest-reigning Impact tag champs of all time and finished off their careers in the promotion by dropping this week’s main event to Willie Mack and Rich Swann.

Following the match, the locker room emptied out to celebrate LAX. The segment closed with Santana and Ortiz being hoisted on the shoulders of the Impact roster.

7Joey Ryan Debuts As Stripper At Melissa Santos Bachelorette Party

A bachelorette party was thrown backstage for Melissa Santos this week. It looked as though the police had been called to break it up but it turns out the officer at the door was really a male stripper fans will recognize as Joey Ryan.

6Brian Cage Cheats During His Bachelor Party

Brian Cage’s bachelor party with Rich Swann and Tommy Dreamer was less eventful. Cage had commented on how he was looking forward to “cheating” at the party but turns out he was just commenting on eating cheat meals on his diet.

5Tessa Blanchard & the Hardcore Legends Defeat OVE

Impact Wrestling kicked off this week with an 8-person street fight. OVE took on Tessa Blanchard, Tommy Dreamer, Rhino, and Rob Van dam. In the end, Rhino would gore Jake Crist through a table and Tessa Blanchard would make him submit to a kendo stick assisted cross face.

Sami Callihan probably has his sights set on October 20th in Chicago against Brian Cage, he might still have some unfinished business with Tessa Blanchard, however.

4Havok Attempted To Murder Su Yung

Havok defeated Su Yung in a no disqualification match this week. She picked up the win after a tombstone piledriver but the end of the match didn’t mean the end of the fight. Yung kept fighting with her rival after the match and the two brawled all the way to the back.

As they brawled into a stairwell, Havok then wrapped a noose around Yung’s neck and tossed her over the railing. Josh Matthews would let fans know after the commercial break that Yung had been taken to hospital.

Medical staff were later shown to be unable to revive Yung. She would come back to life, however.

3Alisha Edwards May Have The Wrong Opinion Of Ace Austin

Ace Austin has stated on impact wrestling that he is out to “bang” Eddie Edwards’ wife Alisha. This week Austin showed up to Impact in a wheelchair after the beating he was given by Edwards last week. He told Alisha he wanted to be there to support her during her match with Taya Valkyrie.

During the match, Austin made dramatic recovery and was able to fend of John E Bravo who was attempting to interfere. The assistance didn’t work, however, as Taya still won the match. After, Austin fell out of his wheelchair while trying to applaud Alisha’s efforts. He must have seemed so noble to her.

2The Rascalz Prepare For Trios Action At Bound For Glory

The Rascals will be involved in trios action at Bound for Glory in Chicago next month. They will take on Dr. Wagner Jr. and his two teammates to be named later. This week, Dez, Trey, and Wentz got to practice some of their trios moves as they defeated the team of Ares, Toxin & Australian Suicide.

1The Desi Hit Squad At Their Strongest?

The Desi Hit Squad are at their strongest ever with the return to Impact Wrestling of Mahabali Shera. Shera defeated the Desi Hit Squad’s rival Cody Deaner in singles action this week. The days of the Deaners embarassing the Great Gama Singh’s faction appear to be over.
