There was a stir in the last few days due to the fact that last night, IMPACT! it aired an hour later than usual (9 p.m. ET), with speculation that AXS TV may be giving the first signs that it will do without the show in its programming. But it was simply a one-off change, due to the celebration of a special event for Ringo Starr's 80th birthday (where stars such as Paul McCartney, Ben Harper or Sheryl Crow acted). The old TNA clarified this in a statement.
IMPACT! It will return to its regular broadcast time of 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT the following week, July 14. "
And now focusing on the episode, recorded again from the Skyway Studios in Nashville (Tennessee), and which once again had Sami callihan in the stellar, who seems that, after the exits of Tessa blanchard y Michael Elgin, aims to eventually take the Impact World Championship and exercise as the main star, now that he also shows a technical attitude. However, in Slammiversary it will not be part of that Fatal 4-Way by the great scepter, but will join forces with Ken shamrock to face The north for the title of pairs.
► Impact Wrestling results: Callihan and Shamrock, united for a cause
1 - Susie and Kylie Rae beat Rosemary and Taya Valkyrie (with John E. Bravo)
An unfortunate distraction from Bravo allowed Rae to apply the STTF to make Valkyrie surrender.
2 - The Deaners defeated Fallah Bahh & TJP, Reno Scum and XXXL
Dynamic clash of couples that elevated Cody Deaner and Cousin Jake in a good way. These were imposed through a Sidewalk Slam from Jake to Larry D.
3 - Jordynne Grace beat Kimber Lee
Fight without the Knockouts Championship at stake, where both gladiators shone. After the match, Deonna Purrazzo, Grace's rival at Slammiversary, appeared on screen.
4 - Willie Mack (c) knocked Johnny Swinger down to retain the Division X Championship
Swinger, in order to gain a starting opportunity, disguised himself as Suicide, and Mack, innocent of him, offered the attempt. So in order not to be discovered, the fight was conditional on Swinger trying to emulate the movements of the legendary TNA character ... without success, of course.
