Impact Knockouts Tag Team Championship
Decay (Havok and Rosemary) vs. The IInspiration (Jessica McKay and Cassie Lee)
Havok and Rosemary controlled the first few minutes of the match. Late in the match, it looked like Havok tripped when she tried a legdrop on Lee but it looked like she wasn’t injured.
Lee and McKay rammed Havok into the ring post and then sent her through the ropes to take her out of the match. The finish happened after a double team powerbomb move and Rosemary was pinned. New champs in their first match with the company.

X-Division Championship – Three-way match tournament final
Trey Miguel vs. Steve Maclin vs. El Phantasmo
There was a brief moment of comedy when Maclin and Phantasmo traded chops on Miguel and then Phatasmo did a nipple twist on Maclin that was no sold. There were lots of cool innovative spots including one from Phantasmo where he walked the ropes and then jumped onto the second rope and back to the top role to do a hurricanrana spot. Moments later while Miguel was doing a springboard handstand from the ropes, Maclin speared him through the ropes and then launched himself to take Phantasmo out of the ring. Maclin then followed up with a dive onto Miguel on the other side of the ring. Late in the match, Phantasmo punched Miguel in the groin but Miguel revealed he was wearing a cup. Miguel finished Phantasmo off by hittting the double knees off the top and pinning him to win the title.
Backstage, Gia Miller interviewed Mickie James.
Heath and Rhino vs. Violent By Design (Deaner and Joe Doering)
Heath walked out to the ring alone for this match and there was no sign of Rhino. It was a handicap match for the first 5 minutes until Rhino made his way to the ring and tagged himself in the match. Rhino pinned Deaner after goring him. Heath and Rhino hugged after the match.

Impact Knockouts Championship
Deonna Purrazzo vs. Mickie James
The match started when Mickie attacked Deonna during the ring introductions and before the bell rung so it was few minutes before the match was officially started.
Around 1o minutes into the match, Mickie hit her jumping DDT but Deonna kicked out and Mickie began to lose her momentum. Deonna then locked in an armbar submission but Mickie got her foot under the rope. Deonna hit the Queens Gambit (cradle piledriver) but Mickie kicked out of the pin attempt. Deonna got frustrated and brought a chair into the ring but the referee took it away from her. Mickie went for the Thesz press off the top but Deonna shoved the referee in the way and this allowed Deonna to grab a chair but Mickie caught her with a kick to the head. The ref got up for a slow count and Deonna kicked out.
Moments later, Mickie hit another kick and a tornado DDT to win the title. This is James’ 4th reign as the Knockouts Champion.
Impact World Championship
Christian Cage vs. Josh Alexander
This was a solid wrestling match that started out slow and the pace picked up as time went by. About 10 minutes in, Alexander hit a knee to the back of the head off the second rope that almost led to the 3 count.
Cage fought back and hit a tornado DDT off the second rope but Alexander kicked out of the pin attempt. Alexander hit Chaos Theory and almost got the 3 count. Alexander followed up with the crossface submission and then the ankle lock but as Cage was about to break free, Alexander turned into the sharpshooter. Cage was able to break the hold by getting to the bottom rope.
Cage hit a spear after Alexander missed a moonsault off the top. Cage tried to end the match but Alexander kicked out. There was another close near fall after Cage hit a splash off the top rope. Moments later, Alexander won the title by forcing Cage to tap out to the ankle lock. Cage handed the title over and hugged Alexander.
Alexander celebrated with his family but Moose ran in to cash in his “Call Your Shot” and he speared Alexander to win the title. Moose then stood over Alexander and Alexander’s wife and kids were in the ring.
