Your (not so) favorite former Impact recapper is back with live coverage of Impact’s Slammiversary XVII from Dallas, Texas. On the same weekend of New Japan’s G1 in the same city no less.
Slammiversary opens up with a nice video package highlighting the history of the company and the current goings on, and then we go straight to the ring.
X-Division Fatal 4-Way
TJP vs. Trey Miguel vs. Dave Crist vs. Willie Mack
This is TJP’s first PPV match since recently returning to Impact – after his departure from WWE earlier this year – and he’s had a hot start to his most recent Impact return with a pair of pinfall wins over Ace Austin on Impact.
After pie –facing everyone, Jake Crist eats a Double Superkick from Miguel and TJP. The action then goes hot and heavy with all four guys taking turns hitting big spots. TJP hits a beautiful headstand into a rana and then he throws Miguel at Mack and Miguel hits him with a headscissors of his own. Trey does his Fenix impression with a series of springs off the ropes into a spinning armdrag.
TJP and Mack square off together in the ring with Mack getting the better with a Samoan Drop followed by a Standing Moonsault for the first nearfall of the match.
Jake takes Mack out and pairs off with TJP as the fans chant “you suck” at him. TJP does his Spider-Man impression in the ropes to avoid Jake and then wraps Jake up with a crazy submission until Willie comes after him only for TJP to cut him off. Trey then comes in with a Diving Neckbreaker on TJP, which causes TJP to DDT Mack at the same time as he still had him hooked!
TJP locks Jake in an Octopus and then also locks Trey in a hold but eats a nasty right hand from Mack. TJP hangs Mack out in the ropes and then hits a Springboard Dropkick. Jake knocks TJP to the floor and then Mack dives onto him. Jake hits a Tope Suicida into a DDT on Mack! Miguel sets up for a dive but Jake avoids him. Trey lands on his feet and then hits a 619 off the apron before going back into the ring and diving onto everyone with a crazy Springboard Tornillo!
Trey rolls TJP into the ring but Mack climbs up to the top only to get cut off by Trey. Trey goes for a Superplex but Dave climbs up with them only to be pulled down by TJP. TJP lifts Trey up onto his shoulders but then Jake shoves them both into Mack. Trey backflips away from them only for TJP to catch him and lock him in a Mexican Surfboard.
Jake covers TJP in the middle of that hold but Mack comes flying out of nowhere with a Diving Foot Stomp onto everyone in an insane spot!
Mack goes for a Powerbomb on TJP but he blocks it and hits a Spinning Back Kick only for Mack to run him over with a shoulder block. Trey dropkicks Willie to the back of the head and then backflips into a head scissors takeover on Jake. Jake then Powerslams Trey into the corner for a nearfall.

Josh Matthews mentions LAX dropping the tag titles to The North at Bash at the Brewery on Friday. Footage of the title change is shown, as well.
Melissa Santos tries to interview The North backstage but Josh Alexander takes the mic away from her and they get pissed at people saying that it was “surprising” they defeated LAX on Friday. Ethan Page says they did exactly what they said they were going to do. Alexander says that they started Slammiversary as Impact Tag Champs and they will leave with the belts, too.
Impact World Tag Team Championships
The North (Josh Alexander & Ethan Page) (c) vs. LAX (Ortiz & Santana) w/Konnan vs. The Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz)
As was just mentioned, The North wrestled the titles away from LAX on Friday night and Josh Matthews once again mentions that LAX struggles when Konnan is not by their side. This has been a running thing with LAX over the last two years. The Rascalz have been on a nice run as of late and had a Triple Threat of their own on Friday where Wentz pinned Trey Miguel to put Wentz and Dezmond into this match for the titles.
The North taunted Konnan as they come to the ring but then get attacked from behind by LAX. LAX pairs off with The Rascalz in the ring now but as they whip them into the ropes, the Rascalz dive through the ropes with stereo Tope Suicidas onto The North!
LAX sets up for a dive but The Rascalz come in and lay them out. LAX cuts them off and hits some insane double team moves on Dez and Wentz. Santana hits a Mafia kick on Wentz and then a Rolling Cutter on Xavier. Alexander then comes in and grabs Wentz and throws him into Ortiz before hitting a big Sidewalk Slam for a nearfall and then transitions right into an Ankle Lock!
Page keeps LAX from interfering but Dez is able to jump on Alexander’s back with a Sleeper before eating Superkick from Page. Wentz rolls through the ankle lock sending Alexander into Page. Dez then sides Wentz flying into Page before The Rascalz kill Alexander with kicks capped off with a Mushroom Stomp from Wentz for a nearfall.
LAX back in with some more double team moves on The North but as they go for a pin Page tosses Wentz off the top on top of LAX! Dez then kills Page with a Leaping Enziguri in the corner. Dez climbs up with Page but Alexander cuts him off and then hits a Spanish Fly! Page hits the Swanton Bomb but Dez kicks out!
Santana dives off Ortiz’s back with a Rolling Senton on Page in the corner! LAX hits a Double Flip Slam on Alexander then go for the Driveby on Page, but Alexander cuts it off. Ortiz still manages to Powerbomb Page for a nearfall, however.
It looks like Santana is hurt on the outside. Ortiz rolls Alexander up for a nearfall as EMTs come down. The North lay Ortiz out with a double team move for another nearfall but Wentz breaks it up. Wentz tries to fight them both off but then Dez comes flying out of nowhere with a Somersault Dropkick over the top rope from the ramp onto The North! They hit the Assisted Shooting Star Press on Ortiz, but then Page Powerbombs Dez on top of Wentz for the pin!
Winners & STILL Tag Champs: The North via pinfall
The Rascalz come over and help Santana up as he was demanding the medical guys to try and let him walk out on his way. It’s been reported for a few months that LAX’s contracts were coming up, so we can probably assume they will not be back.

Sami Callihan cuts a promo backstage and complains about “keyboard warriors” getting mad about him attacking a woman, and then he says that he threatened to quit if his match tonight wasn’t in the Main Event.
First Blood Match
Killer Kross vs. “Lone Wolf” Eddie Edwards
This feud all started over Kross stealing Eddie’s kendo stick but got pretty intense pretty quickly. I can’t even remember the last time Impact had a First Blood Match, maybe early TNA like 2005 or 2006?
Kross comes out wearing a priest’s collar and has his face painted black and white with a huge black ‘X’ on his forehead. Almost immediately Eddie sends Kross to the floor and then dives onto him with a Suicide Dive.
Eddie grabs a steel chair but Kross grabs him by the throat and then slams him onto the ring apron in an absolutely sickening spot. I say sickening because the sound Eddie made as he hit was pretty insane.
Kross rolls Eddie into the ring and then he runs right into a Bell-to-Belly Suplex from Eddie. Kross gets right back to his feet and hits a suplex of his own. They are both no-selling the suplexes and pretending they are in the Tokyo Dome here while exchanging suplexes and strikes.
Kross retreats to the floor and Eddie goes for another dive only to eat a face full of steel chair as Kross throws it at him! The referee checks on Eddie but he still hasn’t been busted open. Kross Gutwrench Bombs Eddie off the apron onto a pair of chairs!
Kross tries to hit Eddie with the chair again but Eddie moves out of the way and then throws another chair at him sending his own chair into his face. Eddie tries to hit Kross again but Kross catches it and flings it away. Eddie ducks a kick and then hits a very sloppy Blue Thunder Bomb. Eddie then just starts punching Kross repeatedly to try and bust him open.
Kross hits a pair of kicks on Eddie and then lays into him with some Forearm Smashes before Hip Tossing Eddie into the turnbuckles. Kross teases Eddie with his kendo stick before tossing it to the floor and throwing Eddie back into the turnbuckles.
Kross lifts Eddie up to the top and then climbs up with him and tries to German Suplex Eddie onto the ramp, but Eddie fights him off and kicks Kross off and crotches him on the top rope. Eddie then hits a Boston Knee Party off the top!
Eddie grabs his kendo stick “Kenny” and swings it but Kross ducks and locks in the Kross Jacket. Eddie hits Kross repeatedly with Kenny as he holds the submission and then sends Kross out to the floor. Kross holds onto the submission as they hit the floor but Eddie again rolls out and then hits a Tiger Driver on the floor!
As they both roll back into the ring Eddie hits another Boston Knee Party, this time to the back of the head, and then a third Boston Knee Party. Eddie tells Kenny that he is sorry and he loves him before breaking it in half and then stabbing Kross with it until he bleeds.
Winner: Eddie via making Kross bleed
RVD cuts a pretty awful promo about his match with Moose backstage. He doesn’t look TOO stoned, so I guess that’s a win.

RVD sets up for something but Moose pulls the referee in front of him. RVD pulls the referee away and Moose low blows him!

All four of these women have held the Knockouts Title with Taya obviously being the current champion. This is the first Knockouts Monsters Ball Match since Rosemary faced Jade (Mia Yim) back in 2017 and is just the fourth one in the history of Impact/TNA involving the Knockouts.

They go right back to trading holds and counters until Swann catches Impact with a spinning headscissors and a dropkick.
