This Thursday’s #IMPACTIndia is the last episode before the biggest night of the Summer, when #Slamm15 airs on PPV LIVE from Orlando, Florida on Sunday. All the matches leading up to Sunday night will be important in various ways, although one could argue that the momentum leading up to Slammiversary is the most valuable.
Last week, Sienna pinned Rosemary. That sent shock waves through the Knockouts Division, as it marked the first time in Rosemary’s IMPACT career, that she had been pinned. Sienna is riding on Cloud 9 going into Slammiversary, while Rosemary will have to shake the defeat in order to compete for the Knockouts and GFW Women’s Championships with a clear mind. Will Sienna’s momentum heading into Slammiversary pay off?
This leads us to Eli Drake and Chris Adonis, both who have big egos and even bigger mouths. They will face IMPACT Grand Champion Moose and partner DeAngelo Williams in a tag match on Sunday night. But, before Adonis and Drake’s big match at Slammiversary, they will face The Mumbai Cats, inside the six-sided ring in Mumbai, India.
We have not seen The Mumbai Cats wrestle inside the ring, although it seems that they will not be considered threats in the eyes of Drake and Adonis. They will have their match with the Mumbai Cats in India, but it will only be a warm up to the bigger challenge of facing Williams and Moose at Slammiversary. Their focus is set on Sunday night. The Mumbai Cats are merely an easy match, a stretch if you will. They will win the match and be on their merry way, with a win and momentum on their side.
But, if we know one thing from professional wrestling, it is never to underestimate your opponent or lose focus, especially on the matches that are sure to be a”win.”
#IMPACTonPOP airs Thursday night at 8/7c and #Slamm15 is Sunday night on PPV.
