Chris Bey vs. Rohit Raju (with Shera)
Before the fight, IMPACT recaps Bey seeing a Bullet Club jersey backstage. The two are tied to start the game and it’s a dead end. “Bey” sings by the crowd, but this is muffled when Raju anchors Bey. Standing, the two men hold their legs. They just land before getting back to it. Raju sweeps his legs, but Bey rolls Rohit over to the apron. This pays off as he hangs Bey from the back above the top rope. It covers for a count of two. Rohit distracted the ref and this allows Shera to get a cheap shot.
Soon after, Rohit hits a clothesline in the back for a count of two. The “Bey” chants ignite again. Snap suplex from Rohit, but Bey kicks it. Rohit catches up with a flurry of corner attacks until Bey escapes a stunning cannonball. He hits a series of kicks and then a renowned asser for a count of two. Bey climbs to the top for a diving lariat for another nearby drop. Raju falls on Bey soon after, but Chris withdraws. Bey opts for the Air Finesse, but Rohit grabs it, slams it crosswise. Bey almost reaches the ropes but Rohit brings him back to the center. Raju goes to get his Drive By Kick, but Bey squirms to attempt a hot hammer. He can’t hit that, but hits an Air Finesse for the finish.
WINNER: Chris Bey
Backstage, Jay White congratulates Chris before asking him if he understood his message correctly. Bey says he did, but Chris Bey walks alone. Jay White asks him how much walking alone helped him at Slammiversary. He continues to give her food for thought which Bey visibly chews on.
Just like last week, Gia Miller is knocking on Kenny Omega’s door. Outside comes Don Callis. He says Omega was injured and burst. He had several stitches because of the Slammiversary. This injury costs him and Kenny money. Gia asks Don about Jay White. He likes certainty. No one told him what Jay White’s intentions were. Maybe he wants to join The Elite or maybe he’s there to stab people in the back. The working environment in this SUCKS company. If anyone gets close to Kenny Omega, they’ll have to face The Invisible Hand.
Mickie James steps out into the IMPACT zone. “Welcome” songs. She says it’s good to be back and it’s good to hear this song once more. It also felt good to kick the Knockout champion in the mouth. However, the PPV did not go as she planned and so she went out today to finish this deal. She calls Deonna Purrazzo again. She responds and Mickie respectfully agrees to disagree with how she presents herself at Slammiversary on Saturday. Mickie knows Deonna’s talent and considers her one of the best today. She would still love to have him on NWA Powerrr. Deonna says Mickie just wants something from her. Everyone wants Purrazzo on her show, but she needs something from her. Crawl at his feet and apologize. Deonna then says that maybe she should do to Mickie what she did to The Virtuosa last week. It’s Gail Kim coming out. She says she was the one who told Mickie to go out to NWA Empowerrr. It seemed like a great time and an opportunity. Gail says throughout this conversation that she didn’t hear a “no”. Mickie always tries to be respectful. She asks him once again to please come to NWA Empowerrr. She holds out her hand and Deonna squeezes it.
We see the same thumbnail we saw for “Drama King” that we had at Slammiversary.
