Flashback Moment Of The Week: DJZ, Dezmond Xavier & Andrew Everett vs. Drago, Aerostar & King Cuerno at WrestleCon 2018
– Alisha Edwards thinks Ace Austin sounds too confident after saying there’s no doubt he’s becoming X-Division Champion. He wants her to go out and celebrate with him when he wins. Ace asks her to promise that she will go party with him if he does. She agrees, although she doesn’t sound confident about his chances.
– Tons of build for Moose vs. Ken Shamrock. After that, we have the Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie talking to someone we can’t see. She hypes it up like it’s someone who has helped her through everything in her career. In the end, it turns out she’s talking to her reflection in the mirror.
#3. Josh Alexander vs. Rhino vs. Rich Swann – Winner: Rich Swann with the 450 Splash on Josh Alexander
– oVe cam, and Callihan is on his own. This has been two years in the making. Since the moment he arrived in Impact Wrestling, the era of Sami Callihan officially started. He tells the cameraman to cut the special effects as he’s keeping it real. Sami pours his heart out about his struggles and people not accepting him. And the more he tries to be accepted, the more he messes up. He shows genuine regret for what happened to Melissa Santos, he was just trying to play mind games and she got in the way.
Sami’s almost crying as he wants the world to accept him. This is the Callihan that the world created, and he isn’t sorry for it. You don’t have to respect him, but at Bound For Glory he will cripple Brian Cage and everyone will have to acknowledge he is the best; and the World Heavyweight Champion. That’s real for ya, but you can go **** yourself.
The next contest is a qualifying match for the X-Division Ladder match at Bound For Glory.
#4. Rohit Raju (w/ Gama Singh) vs. Sabu (w/ Super Genie) – Winner: Draw due to Double Countout after they fell through a table*
*The fifth entrant to the ladder match is still yet to be confirmed, and may not be til Bound For Glory.
– Tessa Blanchard gives her thoughts on the ladder match. Maybe the smart thing to do would be to sit this one out? But nah, the countless hours of training and sacrifice has led her to this. She has a plan, as the goal has always been to reach the pinnacle. This Sunday, no one is going to stand in the way of stopping her becoming the first woman to win the X-Division Championship. When she’s done with Jake Crist, Sami Callihan is next.
