This week’s episode of IMPACT was not only Episode #999, but it was also the go-home to Victory Road.
The show kicked off with Deonna Purrazzo battling Dani Luna for the first time ever. Luna was afforded lots of offense and showcased her powerhouse skills which included a wicked powerbomb.
Purrazzo made her comeback with the exploder suplex before Luna escaped Queen’s Gambit. Purrazzo pulled off the Side Russian Legsweep before trapping Luna in the fujiwara armbar for the victory.
Alisha ran down Canadian accents and discussed how she’s been here for a long time. She decided she needed to change and finally has this title opportunity after winning last week’s battle royal. They both signed the contract, but Trinity remained silent until Alisha called her out.
Trinity said she couldn’t understand her “stupid” accent and admits she overlooked Alisha when she joined IMPACT. Eddie interjected, which led to Trinity pointing out that he turned his back on the company. After calling Eddie “Mr. Alisha,” Alisha threw her champagne in Trinity’s face.
All bets were off as Trinity removed her hoops, wiped her lashes off, and dragged Alisha across the table for a brawl. When Trinity attempted to put Alisha through the table, Eddie stopped her and instead put Trinity through the table with a Blue Thunder Bomb. Eddie and Alisha took off to end the segment.
In addition to Alisha vs. Trinity and Deonna Purrazzo vs. the returning Jordynne Grace, it’s now confirmed that MK Ultra will defend the Knockouts World Tag Team Championship against Gisele Shaw and Savannah Evans at Victory Road on Friday night.
