Impact opens with a video recap of what took place last week on the show. From Low-Ki retaining his title in the return of the Ultimate X match, to the conclusion of last week’s match between James Storm and EC3. Which saw Magnus interfere and Bruce Prichard run down to exact order. Prichard ended up booking a 3 way match between Carter, Storm and Magnus for tonight, with the winner getting a world title shot against the champion Bobby Lashley.

He calls Storm, Carter and Magnus, a bunch of nobodies who are battling to get beaten by him eventually. EC3 is out next….


Carter mockingly tells Prichard that he is looking forward to reading Prichard’s review of him. EC3 then turns his attention to Lashley. He gives him a spoiler alert, that he is going to win tonight and then go on to beat Lashley for the Impact Title at the Slammiversary pay-per-view in July. Magnus is out next. He addresses Lashley first and says that his credentials speak for himself, and that he and Lashley have never met in the ring. Magnus insults EC3 and calls him “EC Cheese” and then takes a direct a shot at Prichard. Magnus says that Prichard has begun the same reign of terror, that he inflicted on the company in the past. James Storm is out last and makes his way down the ramp with mic in hand. Lashley tries to cut him off in mid-speech and Storm insults Lashley by saying that he has a tiny head for a man of his size. The Cowboy then promises to come into the ring for a fight. Prichard tries to put a halt to the chaos and books tonight’s main event as a No DQ match between Carter, Storm and Magnus. Prichard then warns the three participants, that they are not allowed to strike each other until their match later on and that if they do, they will be suspended. EC3 teases Storm to strike him as the show heads to it’s first break.

During the break, Ethan Carter is interviewed backstage. He hypes the main event tonight and what he is going to do to Magnus and James Storm.

When KM gets in the ring, Mahabali turns the tables until Laurel gets on the apron to distract him. Shera gets isolated in the corner and Kongo is back in and starts to beat on him. Kongo and KM take turns beating on Shera and Kongo eventually slaps on a nerve hold. Moments later, Shera gets splashed by the big man, he’s then supelexed and Kongo falls on him with a senton.

The show goes to break with a shot of Josh Mathews backstage, as he makes his way to ringside.


When Impact returns, Jeremy Borash and Da Pope reset the show at ringside. The tweeting sound comes over the sound system and Josh Mathews makes his way to the ring.

Josh Mathews promotes his Slammiversary tag match against Borash and Joseph Park. Mathews calls JB into the ring. Josh Mathews says that he apologizes for some of his actions of late. He says that he has made up with Shark Boy. He also followed Dave Penzer on Twitter after unfriending him initially. Josh then says that he called Mike Tenay to apologize to him for stealing his play by play job. Mathews even mentions Jim Ross. Josh then pretends to cry and says that he has been jealous of Borash all along. Josh then goes on to claim that he is the vice president of Impact Wrestling. Mathews offers to shake Borash’s hand…….. Joseph Park comes out and joins JB in ring. Park advises Borash to not accept Josh’s apology. Joseph then revisits the history between Mathews and Borash. Mathews then snaps at Park and says that he should be the face of this company and that he should call every single major sporting event.



This leads to Park and Borash demanding to know who Josh’s partner is. Park says they don’t have to wait for Slammiversary, he will beat Josh now. Josh calls for a referee but before the match can begin the music interrupts and out comes ‘Big Poppa Pump’ Scott Steiner. Borash and Park sell shock on their faces as Steiner makes his way to the ring. Park and Borash attempt to retreat. They run into the crowd and Steiner goes after them. In the process, Scott Steiner ends up knocking down a “fan”. Park ends up by the ringside area and Mathews low blows him from behind. Josh then calls Steiner into the ring while he gets on the mic and taunts Park and the crowd. Park is then taken into the ring and ‘Big Poppa Pump’ puts him in The Steiner Recliner. Mathews gloats about Steiner being his partner at Slammiversary. Borash then chased up the ramp by Steiner.


Josh Mathews is back as the play by play man at ringside. He instructs Keith Mitchell back in the truck to replay what just happened again….. A Moose vignette then airs where he talks about his career thus far and how The Grand Championship has made him a better wrestler.

McKenzie Mitchell is backstage. She asks Eli Drake about his recent actions against Moose. When Eli starts justifying what he did, Moose arrives and tries to attack Eli but is held back by officials. Drake then challenges Moose to a Grand Championship match next week. Moose accepts and then Eli strikes him. They both brawl briefly and then Chris Adonis shows up to attack Moose as well.

Davey Richards & Angelina Love vs. Eddie Edwards & Alisha

Mathews gets in a pretty good joke during the introductions by Dave Penzer. Josh says that they should get a different ring announcer, like maybe the guy who wrote a book and stooged off his colleagues… Funny…… Eddie and his wife waste no time and charge after Richards and Love immediately. After Eddie hits a caffeine dive on Richards. Love rakes Eddie’s eyes from behind. Alisha ends up diving off the top rope and onto Angelina, as the show heads to break…..
