IMPACT! News and Notes, Plus Victory Road Preview


IMPACT Plus has posted a “watch-a-long” with Eddie Edwards and Eric Young, where they watch their title match from IMPACT Emergence. Click Here

IMPACT has a new home in the UK as they have announced that their show will air on Wednesday nights at 10pm (UK Time) on FreeSports and their premium shows (IMPACT Plus Specials & PPVs) will air on Premier Sports. No word on whether or not the show will continue to air on 5 Spike. FreeSports is a free-to-air channel available to anyone. However it does not attract much viewership.

Josh Alexander, on half of The North tag team with Ethan Page, will be taking on MLW’s Davy Boy Smith Jr at “Josh Barnett’s BloodSport” next Sunday on FITE TV. He sat down with our friend Jason Hagholm to talk about that matchup, his run in IMPACT, working during a pandemic, and more! Check it out:

Victory Road Preview

IMPACT! Presents their first monthly special IMPACT Plus special since February with the return of Victory Road this Saturday night at 8pm ET/5pm PT. There are three title matches on the clard and a huge 4-Way match. There are 7 announced matches in total as we are officially on the road to Bound For Glory.

World Championship Match
Eric Young vs. Eddie Edwards 

This is a title rematch where the winner would presumably face Rich Swann at Bound For Glory. Eddie is battling a bum ankle due to an attack by Ken Shamrock. Looks to me like the ankle storyline will give Eddie an out here and lead to a match with Shamrock. Prediction: Young
Knockouts Championship Match
Deonna Purrazzo vs. Susie 

Suzie continues her transformation back in to Su Yung and I see a loss here for Suzie pushing her more in to that direction. I fully expect Purazzo to win here and for Suzie to turn on Kylie eventually. Prediction: Purazzo
X-Division Championship Match
Reigning champion Rohit Raju Announces The Defeat Rohit Challenge 

It’s going to be interesting to see who answers the challenge here. Could it be one of the young guys that Alex Shelley has been talking about that worked the tapings, Lee Moriarty, Ben Carter, or Tre Lamar? Suicide with a surprise under the mask? Either way, Rohit has done a great job and I would love to see him defend the title at BFG. Prediction: Rohit defeats a surprise opponent
Unsanctioned Tag Team Match 
Rhino and Heath vs. Reno Scum 

While still not signed in storyline (and in real life I think), Heath is getting another shot at landing with Impact by teaming with his former WWE Tag Team Championship partner Rhino against Reno Scum in an unsanctioned match. I sincerely hope Heath and Rhino win, heath gets a contract, and then turns on Rhino. If I keep speaking it to existence, it has to happen. Maybe. Prediction: Rhino & Heath
Tenille Dashwood vs. Jordynne Grace 

Their first match was lacking, the second was much better, and this third (and hopefully final) match of their series could be even better. Tenille has not really been all that impressive in any of her outings in IMPACT, but she appears to be motivated, and an opponent like Grace is perfect to the bring the best out of her. Tenille is getting a push and Grace is cooling down for a bit, Prediction: Tenille
Brian Myers vs. Tommy Dreamer 

Curt Hawkins takes on his wrestling dad in IMPACT’s latest installment of “New heel beats up Dreamer”. Prediction: Hawkins
Ace Austin vs. Josh Alexander vs. Karl Anderson vs. Alex Shelley 

Here’s my prediction for match of the night. 3 of these guys are on fire and can flat out go, and Karl Anderson has the potential too as he has been known to get after it when motivated. I think these guys steal the show in a preview of the 4-Way title match at Bound For Glory. Prediction: Ace Austin gets the win here, as he and Madman Fulton have been taking pins lately and really do not have a claim to be in the BFG title match. A win for Austin could build some credibility. After the match, all 4 teams will brawl.
