The commentary team noted Bob Ryder’s contributions to TNA Impact Wrestling. Unfortunately, we lost him two years ago, and this broadcast is in tribute to him.
– Scott Hudson is on hand to get a word with TNA Originals, the Motor City Machine Guns, Frankie Kazarian, and Nick Aldis. They are here to defend the legacy of Impact against Honor No More, but they aren’t telling us who their partner will be.
– Sting shares his tribute to Impact for giving him the opportunity after WCW closed. He loved being able to get out of the box and introduce “Joker” Sting. It was a good time with Impact, and he loved working with everyone.
#2. [Knockouts World Tag Team Championship] Madison Rayne & Tenille Dashwood (c) vs. Rosemary & Taya Valkyrie — Winners: Rosemary & Valkyrie become new champions!
– Kurt Angle shares his tribute to Impact. He thanks them for giving him an opportunity, and for feuds with AJ Styles, Sting, and so many others.
#3. [Monster’s Ball] Moose vs. Sami Callihan — Winner: Sami Callihan
#4. [World Tag Team Championship] The Briscoes (c) vs. The Good Brothers — Winners: The Good Brothers become new champions!
After the match, The Briscoes and Good Brothers have a stare-down. And then… America’s Most Wanted is here! James Storm and Chris Harris are back together! Storm says they were in the back and they were saying these guys only know two things, fighting and drinking.
We’ve got the fighting out the way, so it’s time for some drinking. James Storm says let’s have a toast to tag team wrestling, which has always thrived right here in TNA Impact Wrestling. All the haters said when they started that they wouldn’t last a year. To all of them… sorry about your damn luck!
– We have a video package of Mike Tenay and Don West’s time in TNA, showing many of their best moments. They were and still are the embodiment of TNA. Thanks for all the moments. The commentary team becomes emotional as they thank them for paving the way, and let us know Don is fighting lymphoma. Everyone wishes him the best while he battles this. Next up, Christy Hemme introduces Scott D’Amore, and he’s wearing Team Canada colors and waving the flag!
Before the following match, Dixie Carter appears with a microphone. It’s nice to see her again. She says it’s surreal to be here twenty years later since they began. Every talent who ever stepped in the ring for them, thank you. The backstage staff and anyone else who helped to set up the show, thank you. We would not be here without every fan who bought a ticket, tuned in or bought a PPV or a t-shirt. Thank you for that, and here is the 5th member… Davey Richards!
#5. Honor No More’s Eddie Edwards, Vincent, PCO, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett vs. Impact Originals Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, Frankie Kazarian, Nick Aldis & Davey Richards — Winners*: Sabin, Shelley, Kazarian, Aldis & Richards
*Frankie’s wife Traci Brooks got involved for a short time, as did D’Lo Brown and Earl Hebner. D’Lo hit the Sky High and Lo-Down on Kenny King. Earl Hebner stood in as the referee and counted the pinfall. Brian & Earl paid tribute to Dave, who passed away a few days ago.
– AJ Styles pays tribute to Impact! Wow. The former TNA Original remembers how this all started. He talks about all of those who he started with, the matches he had with Kurt Angle, and the triple threat with Christopher Daniels and Samoa Joe. They changed things. It was about no limits in the X-Division. The fans voted him the most impactful wrestler. How phenomenal would he be without Impact? He wants to thank WWE for allowing him to do this. Here’s to the next 20 years.
#6. [Queen of the Mountain for the Knockouts World Championship w/ Mickie James as Special Guest Enforcer] Tasha Steelz (c) vs. Deonna Purrazzo vs. Chelsea Green vs. Jordynne Grace vs. Mia Yim
- Chelsea Green is the first to become eligible by pinning Tasha Steelz.
- Mia Yim is second to become eligible by pinning Chelsea Green. Just as Green is put in the penalty box, she knocks out Mickie James with the door.
- Deonna Purrazzo is the third to become eligible by making Tasha Steelz submit.
- Mia Yim pins Jordynne Grace to send her to the penalty box but is already eligible.
- Mickie James stops Chelsea Green from winning the match by attacking her, despite being the special enforcer.
- Mia Yim pushes Chelsea Green & Deonna Purrazzo off the ladder through two tables.
- Both Jordynne Grace & Tasha Steelz pinned Mia Yim, so the referee ruled that they are both eligible.
- Jordynne Grace hits the Muscle Buster on Tasha Steelz to send her to the penalty box. It leaves her as the only standing competitor. She climbs the ladder, hooks on the title, and becomes the champion and first-ever Queen of the Mountain.
Winner: Jordynne Grace becomes the new champion!
The first-ever TNA interviewer Goldylocks is here to talk to Gail Kim. She thanks everyone and the company for giving women opportunities when no one else would. She’s looking forward to another 20 years.
#7. [World Championship] Josh Alexander (c) vs. Eric Young — Winner: Josh Alexander retains!
I’m not one for sticking my opinions into results, but on this rare occasion, I’d like to thank Impact Wrestling and the talent for delivering a perfect show which was more than a fitting tribute to the 20th anniversary of the company. It has been a pleasure, and this was a phenomenal event. Here’s to 20 more!
