9 Takeaways From Impact Wrestling 2/8

Impact Wrestling 2/8

Impact Wrestling presented a taped show from Mexico City last night on Pursuit and Twitch TV. It was the final show before next week’s special “UnCaged” branded show and also featured a tag-team main event between LAX and the Lucha Bros.

Here are 9 Takeaways from Impact Wrestling 2/8

9The Lucha Bros Win The Impact Tag Team Championships

Pentagon Jr. and Fenix are the new Impact Wrestling World Tag Team Champions after having defeated LAX in last night’s main event. The teams are now 1-1 against each other in bouts with the titles on the line.

A rubber match between the two teams seems likely.

8Fatal 4-Way For Impact World Championship Next Week

After Moose and Killer Kross defeated Johnny Impact and Brian Cage in tag action last week, they were both added to next week’s title match. Now instead of a rematch between Brian Cage and Johnny Impact, it will be a fatal 4-way match with the World Championship on the line.

7The Lucha Bros vs RVD & Sabu Scheduled For United We Stand

Not only did Pentagon Jr. and Fenix win the tag titles last night, their opponents for United We Stand were also announced. In what will be the night’s main event a dream tag match between the Lucha Bros and RVD & Sabu has been scheduled.

United We Stand takes place April 4th at 11 PM from Rahway, New Jersey and will air live and for free on Twitch TV.

6Taya Valkyrie (c) vs Tessa Blanchard – Street Fight Title Match Next Week

Next week on Impact Wrestling, Taya Valkyrie will look to defend the Knockouts Championship against former champion, Tessa Blanchard. This will be the 4th title match between the two and it has been booked under street fight rules. Anything can happen when these two clash for the Knockouts title once again next week.

5Kiera Hogan Pinned Dark Allie Again

Kiera Hogan pinned Allie again last night. Previously, Hogan pinned Allie in a tag-team action but this week Hogan got the win in one-on-one competition. Rosemary has been haunting Allie as of late and she appears rattled. When Su Yung disappeared from ringside, only leaving her mandible claw glove on the apron, the distraction was enough for Hogan to hit a fisherman suplex for the win.

4Sami Callihan Will Reveal Rich Swann’s Secrets Next Week

Sami Callihan has been telling the world that Rich Swann owes him for taking him in as a homeless teenager. Swann said in a promo recently, however, that all Sami wants from him is to be his 3rd guy watching his back. That’s not what family is according to Swann. This week Swann teamed up with Willie Mack and defeated the Crist Brothers. Next week, however, Sami Callihan has promised to reveal even more secrets about the X-Division Champion.

3Sami Callihan Gains Momentum For Team Impact

Sami Callihan will also take part in the 2019 World Cup between Impact and AAA next week. This week, however, in a preview to the 4-on-4 elimination tag match, Callihan took on Puma King and picked up the win with a piledriver.

2Trey Beats Rohit Raju

The Rascalz got in the win column this week as Trey Miguel, the Fresh Prince of Midair, defeated the Desi Hit Squad’s Rohit Raju. Trey missed out on becoming X-Division champion at Homecoming but will move back up the division’s rankings with this win.
