Impact X-Division Title Match
Mike Bailey (c) vs. Frankie Kazarian

A fantastic opening match. Bailey looked great here giving it his all to keep the belt and Frankie was the vet pulling out everything he had. Fantastic pacing here and the close falls had you going for who could take the win here. 

4.25 / 5

Singles Match
Mickie James vs. Mia Yim

A good match here with a story behind it. Mickie holds her own as a legend and Mia here looked fantastic going against her. The story sort of alluding on how it would end but the match itself was great. 

3.5 / 5

Impact Knockouts Tag Team Title Match
VXT (Chelsea Green & Deonna Purrazzo) (c) vs. Jessicka & Taya Valkyrie (w/Rosemary)

This stayed shorter and kept the pace going which gave me a better match than I expected. Not huge on Jessika still but she looked fine here with everyone. Hers and Tayas team finisher looked great though. 

3 / 5

Impact World Tag Team Title Match
Honor No More (Matt Taven & Mike Bennett) (c) vs. Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin)

When the action was going it was really good. A bit of a few slow down moments sort of killed the pacing for me. The cheap finish means this feud likely isn’t over but this was still a good match. 

3.25 / 5

Call Your Shot Gauntlet Match
PCO vs. Bully Ray vs. Rhino vs. Tommy Dreamer vs. Johnny Swinger vs. Eric Young vs. Bobby Fish vs. Matt Cardona vs. Taylor Wilde vs. Heath vs. Sami Callihan vs. Rich Swann vs. Steve Maclin vs. Joe Hendry vs. Moose vs. Gisele Shaw vs. Savannah Evans vs. Killer Kelly vs. Tasha Steelz vs. Bhupinder Gujjar

Just like any rumble type matches there’s a lot of down time here. This had its moment with the top being the small ECW reunion spot. Otherwise this was just your typical run of the mill rumble with a winner who I don’t think needed it at all. 

2 / 5

Impact Knockouts Title Match
Jordynne Grace (c) vs. Masha Slamovich

A great lead in to this match made it feel like a personal rivalry. Masha came off like a massive star here holding her own against Grace and even coming close to winning numerous times. With Masha having an undefeated streak going into this they made sure it felt like a massive match with meaning behind it. 

4 / 5

Impact World Title Match
Josh Alexander (c) vs. Eddie Edwards

A phenomenal main event match. Granted I never really got into Eddie Edwards much but here it was impressive. Josh Alexander really comes off as the peoples champ in Impact and is just beyond smooth with his move set and ability to seamlessly do reversals. I liked that outside interference here was kept to a minimum and it gave both guys almost a half hour to just beat down on each other. It never felt like a long match either as even in its slower moments it kept a solid pacing. 

4.75 / 5
