Let’s Talk Wrestling : Impact Wrestling Emergence 2021 (Review)

Impact Wrestling


Nashville, TN




Matt Cardona (w/Chelsea Green) vs. Rohit Raju (w/Shera)
Just an average match honestly. Cardona doesn’t have a great character going while Rohit is just as forgettable. Some fine moves and a bit on the slower side but just so forgettable.
2 / 5
Eight Man Tag Team Match
Fallah Bahh, No Way, Savannah Evans & Tasha Steelz vs. Decay (Black Taurus, Crazzy Steve, Havok & Rosemary)
A solid 8 man tag. Decay shined here quite a lot with all members looking good and Rosemary being a fan favorite. It doesn’t last super long though so it rolls through without many pauses and ends up just being okay by the end.
2.5 / 5
Petey Williams vs. Steve Maclin
A solid match here with some good storytelling with it. Williams was good going super offense most the match. The issue was that nothing ever felt super smooth here, the match didn’t have much rhythm to it and once it slowed down some it couldn’t connect then ended.
2 / 5
Taylor Wilde vs. Madison Rayne (w/Kaleb With A K & Tenille Dashwood)
A slow match between these two with some sloppy and chaotic moments. For the slower pace they didn’t try to do much with the time they had causing this to be a somewhat boring and forgettable bout.
1.5 / 5
Impact World Title #1 Contendership Four Way Match
Chris Sabin vs. Sami Callihan vs. Moose vs. Ace Austin
A fun 4 way match that had a bit of a slow down about half way through. Ace aside from the win came across as the star of the match. Moose just does nothing for me still though, he’s smaller than he use to be but is still just a bland character in and out of ring. Sami was fine here and was the glue that held most the match together it seems.
3 /5
Impact X-Division Title Match
Josh Alexander (c) vs. Jake Something
A really solid match here. Never been huge on Josh Alexander but he worked perfectly here with Jake Something, who looks like a million bucks. A great mix of slow and hard hitting moments mixed with some fast high flying and spots. Throw in some great bomb moments as well and these two put on an X Division title fight that will be talked about for years.
4 / 5
Melina & Trey Miguel vs. Deonna Purrazzo & Matt Rehwoldt
Nothing really special here. The match keeps a slower pace until the brief moment Miguel comes in with his fast offense. This was mainly to help continue Melina and Deonnas feud going into NWA. There wasn’t much wrong here but the match just never truly picked up or tried to do much with itself.
2 / 5
Impact World Tag Team Title Three Way Match
The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson) (c) vs. Rich Swann & Willie Mack vs. Violent By Design (Joe Doering & Rhino) (w/Deaner & Eric Young)
Whats always bothered me with these 3 way tags is having a team stand out and wait to be tagged by his the guys they are fighting, just always seemed dumb. This was a fine tag match though, slower which is odd given one of the teams are more fast paced guys. Good Brothers retaining was clear but they are just so boring in ring.
2.5 / 5
Impact World Title Match
Christian Cage (c) vs. Brian Myers
A surprisingly solid match. Christian brought the best out of Myers for a good match where both men shined. Myers came off looking like a solid villain here in this good but slower match.
3 / 5
