Ricky Starks is the new FTW Champion. He pinned Brian Cage on last night’s AEW Dynamite. The rest of Team Taz got involved. Hook distracted the ref. Powerhouse Hobbs hit Cage with the FTW belt...and Starks delivered a spear and then got the pin. It was made clear after the match that Brian Cage’s time in Team Taz is OVER.
Jon Moxley is still the IWGP United State Champion. He turned away the challenge of Karl Anderson, pinning him with the Paradigm Shift.
Lance Archer wants the next title shot against Mox...and that’ll happen next week - Mox vs. Archer for the IWGP U.S. Title...in a Texas Death Match.
Darby Allin beat Ethan Page in a Coffin Match in last night’s main event. Sting brawled with Scorpio Sky during the match to get him away from ringside. After getting the win, Darby climbed to the top rope and delivered a Coffin Drop through the lid of the coffin on the floor...with Ethan Page still inside.
Hangman Page has his sights set on Kenny Omega and the AEW Championship, but there’s a big hurdle between him and a title match. Hangman and members of Dark Order must beat The Elite in a 10-Man Elimination Tag Match. As an added bonus, if Hangman’s side wins...Dark Order gets a shot at the Young Bucks’ AEW Tag Titles. BUT if The Elite wins...Hangman will NOT get a title shot. A date for that match was not announced last night.
Christian Cage pinned Matt Hardy with the Killswitch. The rest of the Hardy Family Office tried to jump Christian after the match, but Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus ran out to end those plans.
Sammy Guevara pinned Wheeler Yuta with the GTH. Yuta had Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy in his corner, and entered to the Best Friends theme song.
Also last night, Yuka Sakazaki beat Penelope Ford.
Tonight’s Impact Wrestling is the final stop before Saturday night’s Slammiversary pay per view.
There’s gonna be a huge 4-Way Match - literally. Willie Mack vs. Fallah Bahh vs. Joe Doering vs. Doc Gallows.
Also tonight...One half of the Knockouts Tag Champs Tasha Steelz faces Havok... Moose vs. Hernandez… and Jordynne Grace & Rachael Ellering vs. Tenille Dashwood & Kaleb With A K.
Today’s NXT UK will have a press conference to hype next week’s title match between WALTER and Ilja Dragunov.
Also set for today’s episode...Teoman & Rohan Raja vs. Oliver Carter & Ashton Smith.
