IMPACT Slammiversary 2023 was full of title changes.
Vidal slapped Jessicka early on, but he was met with a receipt. Courtney Rush was the damsel in distress for a while until Threat and Vidal got the hot tags. Threat also took care of Shaw before Jessicka wiped out Evans. In the end, Rush speared Vidal and pinned him for the win.
In the second match of the main card, Masha Slamovich and Killer Kelly, now dubbed MK Ultra, battled The Coven for the Knockouts tag titles. Kelly and Wilde started the bout before each team tried double teaming early on.
Slamovich was able to unload with vicious offense to both Wilde and King, but King broke her cover on Wilde. Wilde nearly put Masha away with Witches Way before Kelly pulled King out of the ring. Slamovich countered Wilde and connected with Snow Plow to win the gold.
During Eddie Edwards vs. Frankie Kazarian, Alisha attempted to use a kendo stick when Traci Brooks ran in with a spear and clothesline. Edwards ultimately won that bout after the ref got knocked out.
In the semi-main event of the evening, Deonna Purrazzo received a special entrance for her Knockouts World title defense against Trinity. They stayed evenly matched to start, but Purrazzo soon took over by targeting Trinity’s left arm for a period of time.
Trinity started her comeback by hitting “The Virtuosa” with a Samoan Drop. Purrazzo fired back with a piledriver in the ring and eventually the Queen’s Gambit on the apron. After a nearfall, Trinity took Purrazzo to the top rope for a Full Nelson Bomb before applying Starstruck to make the champ tap out for the first time in the company.
