Below are the Impact Wrestling results, courtesy of PWInsider for 11/12.
They start off doing spots, spots, and more spots. Then they take turns doing dives. Then we go back into the ring for more spots. Then we take turns hitting high impact moves that lead to 2 counts. Then we take turns hitting finishing moves for 2 counts. Then Trey pins Petey off a jackknife rollup.
Winner: Trey Miguel
Seen one X Division match, seen them all. Petey gives Trey a handshake and raises his hand after the match.
Gabby is backstage with Rich Swann, who says he came to Impact a year and a half ago, and he's been moving and grooving in the business for a little over ten years. They told him he was 175 pounds and didn't have the stature to be in this industry, but he kicked the door down and showed everyone he has the heart and the integrity. Now he has this opportunity, and once he gets it, he's going to prove to everyone who ever doubted him, bust his ass, and do what people thought he could never do: become World Champion. When that day comes, Rich Swann will party all night long.
We come back from commercial and Gabby is now with Michael Elgin, who says people can hope and wish, but only one will do, and that's him. Since he's come here, the talk has been about how great he is, but the proof is the World Championship. He bets Sami was proud when he beat Brian Cage for the World Title, but the only thing he accomplished is clearing a path to him. Sami should cherish it while he can, because after next week, he'll be the next challenger.
Josh and Don talk about stuff, then we head back to the ring...
Alexia gets an early advantage, but Madison uses the ropes to trip Alexia up, then hits a Blockbuster for 2. Madison keeps up the offense and gets a couple of 2 counts, and Kiera gets a cheapshot from the floor, setting Madison up to hit a rebound clothesline for 2. Alexia starts firing back and hits a corner dropkick, followed by a lungblower. Alexia hits an electric chair drop for 2. Madison rolls to the floor, but Alexia goes after her and rolls her back into the ring. Kiera distracts Alexia, allowing Madison to hit a catapult into the ropes. Madison takes too much time screwing around and Alexia gets a rollup for 2, but Madison quickly recovers and hits CrossRayne for the win.
Winner: Madison Rayne
Good enough match.
Johnny Swinger is backstage bragging to Aiden Prince about crapping in Petey's bag. Petey comes in and Swinger says not to forget his bag, but Petey said that's not his bag. Ken Shamrock comes in and gets the crap bag, tells Swinger he needs to get in the shower, and leaves while Swinger prepares to write up his will.
RVD is in the sauna with Katie Forbes and talking about getting back in the ring once in a while, and he says both of them will be back next week. He hasn't changed, everyone else has and that's why things look different.
Back and forth to start, they trade big boots, then do Bruce Lee stuff before ending at the indy stalemate. Daga picks up the pace, sends Crist to the floor with a flying headscissors, then takes him out with a dive. Jake catches him coming back in with a dragon screw leg whip, Daga rolls to the floor, Jake goes for a tornado DDT, Daga kind of cartwheled through, but messes it up enough that he's not sure whether to sell, so he starts to sell a bit, then he doesn't. This is why I love this indy/lucha flippy dippy stuff. We're at commercial.
We're back and Jake is in control. Daga mounts a comeback, blows a spinning backbreaker, and hits a DDT for 2. Jake counters a leapfrog to a DVD, but Daga responds with one of his own. Daga with a pair of German suplexes for 2. Jake powerslams Daga into thr corner, connects with a flurry of kicks, and covers for 2. They go to the top rope and Daga hits a super Frankensteiner for 2. Daga with his modified Jay Driller for the win.
Aside from Daga's spot-blowing dexterity, this was okay.
We look back at last week's Ken Shamrock-Joey Ryan match, then we're at commercial.
Gabby is backstage with the North, and Page said they told everyone to line them up so they can knock them down. Alexander says this is the perfect opportunity to get the respect they deserve, but if they won't give it to them, they'll get it when the headlines show that they won tonight. Gabby asks what happens if they lose, and Page says this interview is over, and they'll do their talking in the ring.
Tessa and Swann rush the ring and clear Sami out, but Fulton won't go down until they throw a bunch of moves at him, and then Swann takes them out with a dive. Sami takes Tessa out with a clothesline in the ring and a NASTY brainbuster. Swann in with clotheslines to Callihan, followed by a leaping enziguiri. Fulton catches Swann on a flying something attempt, and he and Sami hit a double suplex. Swann is in trouble now, on the receiving end of power offense from Fulton. Swann takes a beating for a good long time, but finally makes a hot tag to Tessa, who comes in and cleans house. Tessa with a tornado DDT to Fulton, then comes off the top for Magnum, but Sami catches her, throws her to Fulton, and they hit the All Seeing Eye and covers for 2. Swann takes Fulton out with a spinning enziguiri, drills Sami with a running kneestrike, and hits a leaping DDT. Tessa takes out Fulton with a dive, then Swann hits a cartwheel moonsault on Sami for 2. Sami goes to the eyes, and he tries to grab his bat but the referee pulls it away. Fulton tosses Sami the title belt while the ref gets rid of the bat, and he covers Swann for 3.
Winners: Sami Callihan & Madman Fulton
Great match, though I'm still never going to get used to seeing Tessa Blanchard fight men. oVe beats up Swann after the match, and Tessa tries to make the save, so they take her out too. Brian Cage runs in and flattens both Cage and Fulton by himself.
Gabby catches Brian Cage backstage, and he says he isn't done with Sami Callihan or the World Title, and he wants in the #1 contender match next week.
The Impact Plus flashback takes us back to Ultimate X from Homecoming.
Johnny Swinger is backstage still bragging about crapping in Ken Shamrock's bag. Nobody sees the humor in this, and Swinger calls them mizarks.
Taya Valkyrie is backstage yelling at John E. Bravo and Jordynne Grace comes in demanding a title shot. Taya says it doesn't work like that, so Jordynne says she'll take any match. John E. Bravo says challenge accepted, so Jordynne says she'll take them both on.
Moose is putting himself over as the greatest multi-sport athlete ever, and he's going to be in the match next week to determine the #1 contender. Right now, though, he'll prove himself to be the best tennis player of all time. He's with a 20 year pro tennis player, who thinks there's a really small chance Moose might score on him. Moose asks if anyone has ever gotten hurt playing tennis, like breaking their neck, because it'd be unfortunate if someone got their neck broken by playing tennis. The tennis player does the job, and tells Moose he's a natural.
Havok runs her poor opponent over with a hard clothesline, tosses her across the ring by the hair, and nearly breaks her in half with a German suplex. Havok with a facewash, and another, and a third. Moon rolls to the floor, so Havok rams her into the ring apron, rolls her into the ring, and stomps Moon right in the chest. Havok mounts Moon and hammers her with right hands, but Moon rolls out of the way of a legdrop. Moon dodges a corner charge, unloads with some weak forearms, a clothesline, another, and then stomps on Havok's foot. Moon goes to the top rope, Havok catches her and hits a chokeslam for the...no, she pulled her up at 2. Havok hoists Moon back up and hits a Tombstone for the win.
Winner: Jessicka Havok
Well, this was an entertaining squash. Havok heads backstage and bumps into Susie, who says she liked the match, and maybe they do know each other. Susie starts having flashbacks as Havok pushes past her.
And with that...IT'S MAIN EVENT TIME!
Feeling out process to start, with Eddie and Marufuji getting the early advantage. Eddie and Marufuji bewilder Page and Alexander with hard-hitting offense, and the North get some scant bits of offense in, but Eddie and Marufuji keep outmaneuvering them, ditching Page to the floor where Eddie takes him out with a dive as we go to commercial.
We're back, and the North is in control with Eddie in peril. He takes a beating for several moments until breaking away from Alexander and making a hot tag, and in comes Marufuji to clean house. Marufuji with his usual blinding offense, a flurry of kicks, and then the same for Alexander, sending him crashing to the floor. Eddie puts Page on the top rope, hits a super Frankensteiner, and Marufuji with running knees for 2. Marufuji escapes their finish, Eddie drills Alexander with a kneestrike, Marufuji with a superkick, and Eddie with the blue thunder bomb for 2. Series of big boots from Eddie to Alexander, some for Page, and then Eddie turns Alexander inside out with a clothesline. Eddie with a tiger driver to Alexander, Marufuji with a superkick to Page, another tiger driver to Alexander, Marufuji with a superkick to Alexander, and a cover for 2. Page in with a pump kick to Eddie, superkick and roaring forearm combo to Marufuji, more strikes to Eddie, and a double flapjack gets 2 on Eddie. Torture rack into a spinebuster combo finally finishes Eddie.
Winners: The North
Great main event, the North are possibly the best thing going in Impact right now.
