(1) Pentagon & Fenix def. Willie Mack & Rich Swann via pinfall
McMahon: This was a tremendous match; it’s one of the best television matches featured on Impact all year. The action was off the charts. It’s the type of match that you would generally expect to close a show, but I think with a 10 p.m. ET timeslot, Impact probably wanted to make sure this match was featured at the top of the show in order to maximize the eyeballs on it.
— After the match, LAX came to the ring and challenged Fenix and Pentagon to a Tag Team Title match at Homecoming.
— Josh Mathews and Don Callis reset the show.
— In the LAX clubhouse, Konnan is livid that LAX just challenged Fenix and Pentagon. He said once they cross this bridge, there’s no turning back, and he knows what he has to do now. LAX seemed confused by what Konnan was saying after he stormed out of the room.
(2) Jordynne Grace def. Katarina via submission
McMahon: Grace still sold more than I’d like to see her sell this early into her push, but she got a lot of her big moves over in this match. She tossed Katarina around like a ragdoll at times and looked like a superpowerful wrestler, which is what they’re trying to get across. I would have booked it as more of a squash match, but that’s essentially what this was, and Grace looked really strong coming out of it, so it accomplished everything it needed to accomplish.
— KM and Fallah Bahh were upset about losing their tag title match as well as losing all of their money in the casino. Scarlett Bordeaux showed up and they cheered up. She said they used to be on top, but now they’re on the bottom. Get it?
— The GWN Flashback aired, featuring Andrew Everett, Shane Helms, Low Ki, and Trevor Lee in an Ultimate X Match from nearly two years ago.
— Brandon Tolle stormed into Tessa Blanchard’s dressing room and demanded that she show more respect to the officials in the ring during matches. Tessa just brushed him off and seemed to ignore him.
— McKenzie Mitchell interviewed Tommy Dreamer backstage.
(4) Eli Drake def. Tommy Dreamer in a hardcore match
— After the match, Eli Drake went backstage and opened a letter that was with a few balloons. He seemed upset at what he read as the show went off the air.
