EC3 says that tonight is a night for celebration. The quartet starts a rendition of Carter’s ‘Trouble Trouble’ theme. EC3 cuts them off after a minute or so. Carter calls them his cousins “The hot boys and one girl”. After Carter addresses his cousins individually, The quartet then sings “for he’s a #1 contender, which nobody can deny”. Carter cuts them off again and gloats about having his chance to be Impact champion again at Slammiversary. EC3 then cues for the quartet to sing his fight song.

IMPACT GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Moose (c) vs. Eli Drake w/Chris Adonis

Special Judges- Bruce Prichard, Dutch Mantel & Scott D’Amore

 

Round One: Moose starts off the match hot. He takes the fight to Drake and knocks him down with some hard strikes. With two minutes left in the round, Drake turns the tables in the round by clipping Moose’s knee. Eli goes to work on his left knee for the remainder of the round. Drake applies a figure four leg lock as time expires in the round.

Round One Scorecard: Prichard, Mantel and D’Amore all score the round 10-9 for Eli Drake. Eli wins the round 30-27.

Round Two: Mathews makes an old Jerry Lawler joke about Dutch Mantel. He says that Dutch has been around so long that the dead sea was only sick when he started….. Drake continues to target Moose’s knee at the start of the round. Drake wraps Moose’s legs around the ring post and then slams his injured knee against it repeatedly. When it appears that Drake is going to apply the old Bret Hart ringpost figure four, Moose counters and sends Drake into the post. With a minute left in the round, Moose hits a nice looking standing dropkick, it sends Eli crashing to the floor. Moments later, Moose hits a second rope moonsault but is unable to cover Eli, as time expires.

Round Two Scorecard: The on screen graphic for the judges still has them numbered from 1 through 3. Judge 1(Mantel?) scores the round 10-9 for Moose, Judge 2 (D’Amore) scores the round 10-9 in favor of Drake, Judge 3 (Prichard) scores the round 10-9 for Moose. So Moose wins the round 29-28.

Round Three: Drake is ahead in the scorecard 58-56 heading into this final three minute round…… The round starts off as a slugfest. Moose wins the battle and then hits “Go To Hell” on Eli for a near fall. Mathews mocks Bruce Prichard’s podcast on commentary….. Eli Drake counters a pump kick into a judo throw suplex for a near fall. With just over a minute left, Eli and Moose go back to trading strikes. Moose lands consecutive forearms and Drake falls to his knees. With 10 seconds to go, Chris Adonis grabs the bottom leg of Moose as he is setting up for his finisher. When Moose breaks free, Drake hits his finisher but time runs out on the round.

Round Three Scorecard: Jugge 1 scores the round 10-9 for Drake. Judges 2 and 3 score the round 10-9 for Moose. So Moose wins the round 29-28…. He is then declared the winner of the match. The numbers don’t add up unless I am missing something here. The overall score should be Eli Drake 86 Moose 85. He lost two rounds but scored 30, 28 and 28. Moose had 27, 29 and 29.
