After defeating PCO in a brutal No Disqualification match at Under Siege, Steve Maclin demanded that IMPACT President Scott D’Amore put the IMPACT World Title around his waist. D’Amore lived up to his promise but then, disaster struck. Bully Ray appeared for the first time since being defeated in Rebellion’s Hardcore War and joined forces with Maclin to deliver a heinous assault to D’Amore – which ended with him being powerbombed through a flaming table. This Thursday, Bully kicks off IMPACT! and there’s no telling what the “Baddest of the Bad” may have to say. His issues with D’Amore have reached levels of intensity never seen before and something has got to give.
Last Friday at Under Siege, Trinity made her triumphant IMPACT Plus debut when she defeated Gisele Shaw in a back-and-forth contest between two of IMPACT Wrestling’s top Knockouts. Trinity had to overcome the odds as she successfully thwarted numerous attacks at the hands of Shaw’s cronies, Jai Vidal and Savannah Evans. This Thursday, Evans is out for revenge when she goes one-on-one with Trinity. Can Trinity continue her winning ways against one of the division’s most daunting powerhouses?
Eddie Edwards and Yuya Uemura took each other and the rest of the field to the limit in the #1 Contenders free-for-all at Under Siege, which also involved Alex Shelley, Moose, Jonathan Gresham and Frankie Kazarian.

This Thursday, Edwards and Uemura look to bounce back when they face off in singles action. Who has what it takes to score the all-important W?
Jake Crist made his long-awaited return at Under Siege when he united with Sami Callihan and Rich Swann to defeat The Design in a six-man tag team grudge match.

But with the ever looming threat of The Design lurking around every corner, can Callihan and Crist continue their wave of momentum?
Alongside her allies in SUBCULTURE, Dani Luna arrived in IMPACT Wrestling at Under Siege. While Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster ultimately came up short in their quest to dethrone ABC as IMPACT World Tag Team Champions, their future certainly looking bright in the tag team division. This Thursday, we will see Luna make her in-ring debut as she faces off against the physical Jody Threat. Threat has been unstoppable since her arrival and remains undefeated. Will Luna be the one to bring an end to her dominance? Or will Threat prove once again why she’s a force to be reckoned with?
