Impact Wrestling Preview: Last Road to Redemption

The final episode of Impact Wrestling before the company’s Redemption PPV on Sunday airs tonight.

Impact Wrestling Preview (April 19th, 2018)

  • KM Issues an Open Challenge
    • Kevin Matthews, aka KM, plans to issue an open challenge to the Impact Wrestling locker tonight.
  • Johnny Impact vs Kongo Kong w/Jimmy Jacobs
    • The Emo Princess, Jimmy Jacobs, has control over Impact’s newest monster, Kongo Kong, but how will he fair against perennial top-contender, Johnny impact?
    • Neither of these two has a match booked for the Redemption PPV. Perhaps something will be set up here or they might both be left off the show.
  • Su Yung and Braxton Sutter vs Fallah Bahh and Kiera Hogan
    • An inter-gender match featuring two of Impact’s newest female wrestlers, Su Yung and Kiera Hogan takes place tonight.
    • Yung will take on Knockouts Champion, Allie, on Sunday for the championship.
    • We are still finding out just how dangerous the undead bride is. Perhaps tonight we will find out more about Su Yung’s plans for Allie.
  • Brian Cage in single’s competition
    • Nobody is rising up the Impact Wrestling rankings faster than Brian Cage. He’ll be in single’s action tonight but his opponent has yet to be named.
    • Cage defeated Lashley recently on Impact and the victory over a former World Champion likely means the promotion has big plans for him.
    • Brian Cage is scheduled to be in a 6-way match at the Redemption PPV. His opponents are scheduled to be Taiji Ishimori, Dezmond Xavier, El Hijo del Fantasma, DJZ, and Trevor Lee.
  • Last Road to Redemption

    • While not confirmed, it is expected the company will air some promotional segment for the Redemption PPV main event.
    • Impact was forced to explain for Alberto El Patron’s removal from the Redemption show during last week’s episode. Aries explained that since he lost the triple threat match at the LU vs Impact show, the same match will be run back again at Redemption. Should Pentagon win at Redemption, he would simultaneously hold both the Lucha Underground and Impact Wrestling world championships in storyline. While season 4 of Lucha Underground has been filmed (so he may have lost the title, I don’t know), it has yet to air.
