Thanks to SirOwenDisney on Twitter for the following recap from tonight’s Impact Wrestling taping:
Bruce Prichard is out selling his ribs from the EC3 attack & he is using Tyrus as backup. Here comes Lashley. He’s the most dominant, he can’t be beaten. He wants to know who he gets to beat up at Slammiversary. EC3 interrupts. He will become an EC 3 Time World Champion at Slammiversary. Here comes Magnus. He doesn’t seem to know Lashley’s name. Magnus returned to fight a crusade against the Prichard Regime. Out comes James Storm. If it’s anyone to face Lashley, it should be The Cowboy. Says EC3 has a big body & a little head. He gets in the ring for a fight. Tonight is a Triple Threat between EC3-Storm-Magnus tonight to determine the Slammiversary opponent for Lashley.
Allie had to stop Laurel from kissing Shera. This lead to Allie hitting a Crossbody on Laurel & Sienna.
Impact: KM & Kongo Kong(w/ Laurel Van Ness & Sienna) defeated Braxton Sutter & Mahabali Shera. Everyone brawled to the back save the Knockouts. Sienna & Laurel had a 2 on 1 on Allie until Rosemary made the save misting Sienna.
Josh comes out to the ring with a mic, it looks like we are about to find out who his partner is. Josh asks for JB to join him in the ring. He does so. Shut him up chants start up. Josh brings up Mike Tenay & David Penzer & made up with Shark Boy. Talks about Jim Ross & says he’s a VP of the company. He says he’s truly sorry. He says he’s jealous of JB. Josh extends his hand, he wants it to end & them to be friends. Park says JB shouldn’t shake his hand. Team JB beat Team Josh. Josh wants both men out of his ring, he should be the face of everything. He’s giving everyone else the rub. Scott Steiner chases JB into the fans & allows Josh to low blow Park. This leads to a Steiner Recliner on Park.
It’s now time for Davey & Angelina against Eddie & Alisha. David Penzer announced them as David & Angelina Richards. Eddie Edwards & Alisha defeated Davey Richards & Angelina Love when Alisha pinned Angelina with a Rollup. Angelina pulled Davey off Eddie afterwards until Davey got a table from under the ring. Angelina took Alisha out as Davey gets a second table from under the ring. Angelina Powerbombed Alisha through table as Eddie was handcuffed to the ropes being forced to watch.
