– We hear from Rhino. Will he accept Heath’s offer to be his tag team partner at BFG?
Rhino Makes His Decision:
Last week, Heath proposed during his contract signing with Scott D’Amore that he wants a tag team match at BFG. He wants Rhino to join his team against Violent By Design.
Tonight, Heath and Rhino are going to settle this. Both men are standing in the ring. Heath reminds Rhino of the friendship and partnership they’ve once shared and how it’s fallen apart because of VBD. Heath was starting to persuade him; that’s when VBD makes their likely arrival.
Eric Young reminds Rhino he made a promise to him the moment he joined VBD. Heath says oh, no, he doesn’t. Rhino is caught in the middle, literally.
Deaner leads an attack on Heath. Rhino throws Deaner off of Heath. Heath heads to the corner. Young thinks Rhino should charge in on Heath with a Gore. Instead, Rhino exits it out of the ring and heads into the crowd. VBD leads a 3-on-1 beatdown on Heath.
It looks like Heath will be walking into BFG alone.
– “The King of Pro Wrestling” Minoru Suzuki is making his way to the Impact Zone soon!
Can the Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo’s handpicked opponent overpower Mickie James before their BFG title match?
Pick Your Poison: Mickie James vs. Savannah Evans (w/Tasha Steelz)
The fans unanimously start chanting, “Welcome back” to Mickie James. Savannah Evans doesn’t care what they think. She shoves James into the corner. James hopes onto Evans’ back and tries to lock in a sleeper. Evans backs her into the corner to break it up. James executes a bicycle kick. Tasha Steelz grabs James as she comes off the rope. James turns around and gets clocked by Evans.
Evans continues to overpower James. Evans holds James in a firm bear hug. James escapes by biting near Evans’ ear. She would make Mike Tyson proud! James soars with a massive top rope Thesz Press! She was so close to winning this whole thing right then and there. The Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo heads out to watch this fight up close. Evans launches a full nelson slam. Cover. James leaps out at two. James saves herself and capitalizes in this match by hitting a perfect DDT. James picks up a “W” ahead of BFG!
Winner: Mickie James
Post-Match: Deonna Purrazzo distracts Mickie James while Matthew Rehwoldt ambushes her. Since Purrazzo can’t touch James until their match, she stuck to her word on the clause by having Rehwoldt do the dirty work for her. Purrazzo stands over James, implying she’ll remain the Knockouts Champion after Saturday.
Backstage: Scott D’Amore approaches Purrazzo, reminding her that seconds ago, she broke her clause promise. He could strip her from the title right now, but he’d rather watch her lose it on Saturday. Matthew Rehwoldt will be banned from ringside. Should he get involved in any way, Purrazzo will automatically lose the title.
– Brian Myers is so disappointed in his Learning Tree and all their countless losses lately. He decides to cut Manny Lemons and Sam Beale from his training team.
– Scott D’Amore is joined by Decay (Havok & Rosemary) and The IInspiration’s representative Barrister R.D. They officially sign on the dotted line before Saturday. It’s official: Decay vs. The IInspiration for the Knockouts Tag Team Championship!
Up next, two of Impact’s top high flyers will face off!
Trey Miguel vs. Alex Zayne
Both men tie-up. Trey Miguel sets Alex Zayne down on the mat with a tight wrist lock takeover. Zayne reverses. Miguel rolls Zayne to the other side to break it up. Zayne drops Miguel on the mat. Both make their way back to a vertical base. Miguel displays some great mat wrestling and looks for back-to-back cover attempts on Zayne. Zayne spills to the outside but rolls back in quickly to break up Miguel’s next plan. Miguel lands an Asai Moonsault as we head to commercial.
Welcome back, Miguel sounds off with a double stomp just as we return. Cover. Zayne pops free at two. Miguel locks in a Koji Clutch of sorts before reverting to a vice grip. Zayne escapes and sends Miguel off the top rope with a beautiful top rope dragon rana! Both men make their way into the high-risk district. Miguel slips out to hit a 619! He hops back up on the ropes to deliver a Meteora. That’s going to do it for this excellent match!
Winner: Trey Miguel
Post-Match: Steve Maclin slips into the ring and tries to take out Trey Miguel ahead of their X-Division Match on Saturday. Look who stops by as well, El Phantasmo! ELP tunes up the band and executes a Sudden Death superkick. His last laugh comes after landing a swift punch straight towards Miguel’s family jewels. Is ELP foreshadowing something big? Could ELP become the next X-Division Champion?
Just In: FinJuice, Bullet Club and the Impact World Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers will meet in a three-way match for the titles this Saturday!
Josh Alexander and Christian Cage Fire Their Last Warning Shots:
The former X-Division Champion Josh Alexander stands in the ring. With risk comes high reward. And for Alexander, he wants to hold the pinnacle title. He dedicates this upcoming match to his children. Although he had a convincing speech, the Impact World Champion Christian Cage has something to say.
Cage reiterates what he said to Alexander last week in their summit; he thinks Alexander won’t be able to handle the pressure that’s before him. Alexander strongly disagrees. The Walking Weapon looks to slam the forbidden door on Cage’s face and bring home the title to where it rightfully belongs.
Cage snaps back, which leads to Alexander laying the first punch. Security and several guys from the back come in to separate the two of them.
Who will walk out of BFG the Impact World Champion: The Walking Weapon or Captain Charisma?
This concludes the BFG go-home show.
