Just one night away from Multiverse of Matches LIVE from WrestleCon, an all-new IMPACT! is on the air.
We see footage from this past Saturday’s Destiny Wrestling event in Toronto where IMPACT World Champion Moose delivered a heinous spear to Jen Alexander, Josh Alexander’s wife.
IMPACT Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore tells Josh Alexander that Moose isn’t here tonight and that he suggested to the Anthem Board of Directors that Moose be stripped of the IMPACT World Title for his actions. An enraged Alexander grabs D’Amore by the collar and says that Moose better pay attention to what Alexander does tonight.
After making his return to IMPACT Wrestling last week, ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham addresses the crowd before his match against Kenny King. Gresham says that he came to IMPACT to share the essence of ROH with the world. Gresham calls Honor No More’s leader, Eddie Edwards, a part of Ring of Honor’s “Foundation” but now, he represents something completely different. Gresham sets the stage for his match with Edwards at Rebellion when Kenny King interrupts. King calls Gresham a puppet for Ring of Honor, claiming the company is using him to bring them worldwide prestige. King says that he’s not interested in competing under Pure Rules, all he’s here to do is finish the job that Eddie Edwards started.

King rakes the eyes of Gresham, then takes him off his feet with a slingshot corkscrew to the floor. Gresham hits a dropkick, followed by multiple chops in the corner to gain momentum. Gresham crashes and burns off the top as he clutches at his knee. Turnabout is fair play as Gresham begins to target the knee of King. King comes back with a Spinebuster for two. King hits a Full Nelson suplex into a Tiger Driver for another near fall. King’s knee gives out, allowing Gresham to lock in the Figure Four Leg Lock. King’s shoulders are down as the referee counts to three, awarding the pinfall victory to Gresham!
