IMPACT Wrestling Results 1/26/23
“Outlandish” Zicky Dice beats Carlie Bravo in the BTI Match.
Trey Miguel retains the Impact Wrestling X Division Championship against Mike Jackson. After the match, Trey Miguel looks for his spray paint underneath the ring, but he finds Crazzy Steve instead. Crazzy Steve comes out from underneath the ring, and his body is covered with the word “Trey” while Trey’s logo is on the back of his head. Steve then tags himself with Trey’s logo with red spray paint, and as Trey backs away, he runs into Black Taurus on the ramp. Trey is forced to hop the barricade to escape.
Backstage, Gia Miller interviews “The Walking Weapon” Josh Alexander. Alexander says the field is stacked in tonight’s Golden Six-Shooter Match and that he will defend the world title against anybody. He says everyone in the match has known what it is like to be champion, and no matter who wins, he is the longest-reigning for a reason. Steve Maclin shows up and says he has defeated everyone in the match and says that he wants the world title as well. He tells Alexander to keep one eye over his shoulder, as Scott D’Amore is not here to protect him anymore.
KUSHIDA and Kevin Knight beat The Good Hands (John Skyler and Jason Hotch) with a Kimura Lock from KUSHIDA to Jason Hotch.
Backstage, “The Quintessential Diva” Gisele Shaw finds out from Director of Authority Santino Marella who her tag team partner is. The tag team partner is not shown, but Jai Vidal is delighted by the choice and regards them as a legend.
Backstage, Mickie James thanks Jordynne Grace for giving her one of the best matches of her career at Hard To Kill, but mentions Jordynne helping her last week and is confused by the whole situation. Jordynne says she showed up to protect her investment, as she still has a championship rematch. She also says Mickie tapped out at Hard To Kill and that the title will come back to her soon. Mickie says she will beat her after she beats Masha Slamovich, but Jordynne says that hinges on if she beats Masha.
The Death Dollz (Taya Valkyrie and Jessicka) beat “The Quintessential Diva” Gisele Shaw and Tara in what is Tara’s first match in Impact in nine-and-a-half years after Gisele Shaw refuses to tag Tara in to the point that she disrespects her. Tara confronts Gisele, and this leads to Rosemary, Taya and Jessicka all eating popcorn in the corner while Gisele and Tara argue until Tara hits Gisele with the Widow’s Peak and leaves the ring.
We see Taylor Wilde thank the spirits guiding her on her path, then sees a message in her tarot cards. She finds out that she will be seeing more of Killer Kelly in her future.
Director of Authority Santino Marella and Busted Open host David LaGreca are met by Bully Ray, who takes offense to not being in the Golden Six-Shooter Match and mentions interference by Tommy Dreamer and Josh Alexander’s wife in his title match. Santino tells him that he lost, then Bully Ray admits that he finds Santino entertaining and that he put him over all the time and reminds him of what happened to Scott D’Amore before leaving. Santino asks LaGreca how he can deal with Bully Ray, and LaGreca says that the only person who can is Tommy Dreamer.
Backstage, Gia Miller interviews Tasha Steelz and Savannah Evans. Tasha says that Mickie James did not beat her one-on-one. On the subject of difficulties between her and Savannah Evans, Tasha says nothing is working out, and then leaves.
Bullet Club (“Inevitable” Ace Austin and Chris Bey) beat The Major Players (Matt Cardona and Brian Myers) with a double-team pinning combination that leaves Cardona disoriented. After the match, Joe Hendry shows up and mentions Matt Cardona wanting a shot at the Digital Media Championship before telling him he accepts his challenge. He says he respects Cardona about being the original Internet Champion, then says that Cardona has been green with envy and feeling left out, which is the last thing he and the fans want Cardona to feel. We then hear Joe Hendry’s parody song about The Major Players and Chelsea Green. This leads to an “Edge’s Bitch” chant from the crowd.
Backstage, Moose is met by The Major Players (Matt Cardona and Brian Myers), who tell him that Impact has a Joe Hendry problem and that they will take care of Hendry.
Jonathan Gresham beats Sheldon Jean.
Rich Swann beats Rhino, Eddie Edwards, Chris Sabin, Moose and Sami Callihan in a Golden Six Shooter Elimination Match to become #1 contender for the Impact Wrestling World Championship. Eddie Edwards is eliminated by Chris Sabin after PCO show up and security and referees stop him from entering the ring. Near the end of the match, The Design (Deaner, Kon, Angels) shows up, and Deaner tells Callihan to take him out. After the match, Deaner tells Callihan to finish the job, but Swann confrons Deaner over this. Kon and Angels attack Swann, and Deaner tosses Swann to Callihan. Yuya Uemura runs into the ring, but he is also attacked. Frankie Kazarian and “The Walking Weapon” Josh Alexander then run into the ring to even the numbers, and they are able to fend off Sami Callihan and The Design.
