Impact control results (6/17/2021)
A moose knocks on Scott D’Amores’ door. He tells her he got kicked out of the title, so it’s only fitting that he gets his revenge at Slammiversary. Scott says everyone is pissed off, the Anthem Sports board of directors is sending someone to the Impact zone to fix the problem, which has never happened before!
# 1. TJP (with Fallah Bahh) vs. Black Taurus (with Crazzy Steve) – Winner: TJP with the Mamba Splash
Ace Austin is looking to form an alliance with Rohit Raju ahead of the Ultimate X game so they can have a level playing field. Raju agrees with him, but he also has a trump card up his sleeve.
Chris Sabin returns and doesn’t like Moose’s requests, so he challenges him to a game at Slammiversary.
# 2. Josh Alexander vs. Madman Fulton (with Ace Austin) – Winner: Josh Alexandre
Ace Austin attacks Josh after the bell. Petey Williams returns to tie the game. He goes to hit the Canadian Destroyer but Rohit Raju hits him from behind. Trey Miguel is next and he’s on fire. A wild Shera appears! He takes Trey & Petey away before Josh comes face to face with him. Shera suffocates the X Division champion on her knee. Guess it was Raju’s ace in the hole. He, Shera, Austin and Fulton raise their arms in victory.
Behind the scenes, Deonna Purrazzo is grilling Kimber Lee and Susan because their plans haven’t been going well for months. Susan thinks she wouldn’t be a champion without them, but that only leads at Deonna says she doesn’t need any of them.
W. Morrissey says the only thing he can trust in this industry, in this life, is himself. Next is the debut of Steve Maclin, formerly known as Steve Cutler of WWE’s The Forgotten Sons.
# 3. Steve Maclin vs. Page – Gagnant : Steve Maclin
Tensions continue to build between tag team partners Rachael Ellering and Jordynne Grace.
Don Callis says if you have siblings you understand you can bicker, but at the end of the day you figure things out. He and Scott D’Amore have different skills which have worked well to revive Impact Wrestling, but the problem with Scott is that he’s too emotional and too attached to talent, when he sees them more as numbers on a spreadsheet. This isn’t the first time they’ve talked about sacking Sami Callihan.
He’s not too worried about Anthem’s executive, he expects him to come and thank him for getting rid of Callihan. Come bring gifts because he got rid of a problem that should have been fixed a long time ago.
# 4. Rachael Ellering vs. Tenille Dashwood (with Kaleb) – Winner: Tenille Dashwood with the help of Kaleb
Fire N ‘Flava harasses cleaners and backstage staff into saying they are the best Knockouts Tag team ever. Rosemary & Havok have something to say about this. It quickly escalates and they throw Kiera Hogan in the trash. Wait… it’s worse than garbage! These are Mickie James’ things put in a garbage bag. Wow, this is low.
# 5. Satoshi Kojima (with Eddie Edwards) vs. Rhino (with Violent By Design) – Gagnant: Satoshi Kojima *
* With this victory he won a tag team title against Violent By Design with Eddie Edwards as a partner.
Sami Callihan is in the ring complaining about being fired. Security steps in to get him out, but he won’t leave. Scott D’Amore enters and calms him enough to disappear with a flash (ICU). Don Callis hastens to make his presence known and is a little jubilant. Tommy Dreamer is there and he reveals that the executive of Anthem Sports is him!
He went to the office and worked on their behalf to shed light on this matter. Dreamer says Callihan was never fired because he reinstated him immediately. After much deliberation, it is decided that Don Caliis is fired from Impact Wrestling.
