Starting the night off with confidence, Aron Rex issued an open challenge for the IMPACT Grand Championship. But one man would answer his challenge. That one man was Moose.
The was a shocking turn of events when Moose defeated Aron Rex with his patented spinning lariat for the victory with only 1:40 left in the first round. JB tried to get a word with Aron Rex but he appeared to be sobbing tears after the loss.
The DCC made their way to the ring to state their claim to the Hardys World Tag Team Championships. This brought out Jeff Hardy who ended up delivering a Twist Of Fate to Kingston, but then was attacked by Bram and James Storm. This brought out the return of Broken Matt Hardy. A moment we had all been waiting for. We then learned that later we would see the DCC face off against Matt and Jeff Hardy for the Tag Team Championship.
A 3-Way Team X Gold match was set in place for Thursday night’s IMPACT on POP. But this time, it was all three members of Team Go For Broke competing against one another. During the match, DJZ’s injuries looked to be getting the best of him, but that wouldn’t stop him from fight. As the match the continued, Mandrews hit the shooting star press on Sutter only to be rolled up by DJZ in a tight cradle for the win. Mandrews, visibly upset, kicked DJZ’s injured knee. Is this a new change of attitude for the British Boot Camp 2 winner? Is this the end of their friendship?
Maria Kanellis-Bennett and Laurel Van Ness confronted Allie once again in the middle of the IMPACT Zone. Remembering back to what happened during IMPACT’s Thanksgiving episode, Maria and Laurel were sure to have some harsh words for Allie.
But it wasn’t until after Maria called Allie a ‘bitch’, that Allie had had enough of Maria’s hatefulness. That was when Allie proceeded to successfully deliver a slap to Maria that would be heard ’round the world. Shortly after, we learned that Maria will fight Allie next week on IMPACT on POP.
The members of the DCC were back in the IMPACT Zone and ready to fight the Hardys. Bram and Kingston were the two selected to face Matt and Jeff, but were defeated by the Hardys after simultaneous Twists Of Fate on Kingston for the win. The Hardys are STILL your World Tag Team Champions.
EC3 made his way to the ring and shortly after, out came Eddie Edwards. EC3 then confronted Eddie saying that he wanted his shot at the World Title. Both men will face off in the main event NEXT WEEK on IMPACT Wrestling.
The main event featured an unbelievable 6 sides of steel match between Rosemary and Jade. TNA Hall of Fame inductee, Gail Kim was ringside in support of Jade. The match began outside six sides of steel, but eventually made its way inside the cage. After receiving a death defying cross body from the top of the cage, Rosemary captured the vacant KO Championship for the first time in her career. This was a moment that changed everything in the Knockouts Division.
