Impact Wrestling Slammiversary Notes
Sami Callihan delivered a vicious piledriver to Tessa Blanchard to end their match last night. Blanchard’s aggressiveness during the match won over Callihan, however, who handed Blanchard her gold bat following the match as a sign of respect.
Brian Cage used a basic wrestling maneuver to defeat Michael Elgin. After the match, an enraged Elgin turned his attention to Don Callis. A masked man, who shares many mannerisms with Rhyno, made the save. Is a Michael Elgin vs Rhyno match something Impact fans could see in the near future?
Rich Swann straight-up beat Johnny Impact cleanly in an amazingly athletic contest. Swann got the win with a Phoenix Splash causing the former World Champion to make the face seen in the Tweet below:
Taya Valkyrie may have stolen the pin away from Havok in Monster’s Ball but she is still the Knockouts champion and still quite confident in herself:
Moose defeated a legend at Slammiversary. Last year at Slammiversary, Moose challenged for the world title. How much longer until he’s back in the mix for the belt? What does this loss mean for Rob Van Dam?
Eddie Edwards broke Kenny (his pet Kendo stick) in half so he could use the sharpened edges to shove down Killer Kross’ throat in their first blood match. As Kross coughed up blood, Edwards was declared the winner.
Eddie even gave the old “I’m sorry, I love you” to Kenny before he broke the Kendo stick as well.
Ethan Page and Josh Alexander picked up their first title defence at Slammiversary. Perhaps the bigger issue might be Santana from LAX who was unable to finish the match due to injury.
Willie Mack picked up the win in the night’s opening match with a frog splash:
