IMPACT ON AXS TV RESULTS (12/2/2021)

This week’s show kicks off with the usual “We own the night” signature intro video package and theme song. We then shoot inside Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas, NV. where the commentary team of Matt Striker and D’Lo Brown welcome us to tonight’s show.

Matt Cardona, Moose Trade Insults, W. Morrissey & Eddie Edwards Get Involved

From there, we hear the familiar sounds of Matt Cardona’s theme song as the longtime pro wrestling veteran makes his way out and heads down to the ring for our opening segment of the show.

Cardona talks briefly before he is ultimately interrupted by Moose. The IMPACT World Champion emerges and begins making his way to the squared circle.

Once in the ring, Moose gets on the microphone and starts verbally dressing down Cardona, constantly referring to him as “Mid-Cardona.” Cardona responds, claiming to be the death match king of wrestling.

Moose continues to take shots at Cardona, calling him a mid-carder for life and mocking him for his one-day reign as Intercontinental Champion in WWE. He claims their match will last longer than “Mid-Cardona’s” entire I-C title reign.

Cardona has heard the “Mid-Cardona” insult enough and dares Moose to call him that one more time. Moose does and Cardona reacts by slapping the microphone out of his hand and attacking him.

We see Cardona faring well against the IMPACT World Champion and then out comes W. Morrissey. The big man goes after Cardona, who holds his own for a while, but is eventually gobbled up as he becomes victim of the numbers game disadvantage.

Finally, Eddie Edwards hits the ring to make the save, helping Cardona fight off Moose and Morrissey and clearing the ring of the heel duo. Moose’s IMPACT World Championship is still in the ring, so Cardona picks it up and raises it up high in the air as the fans react to end an entertaining opening segment.

Violent By Design Send A Message To Rich Swann & Willie Mack

We shoot backstage where we see Violent By Design standing by. Eric Young talks about the goal of VBD to capture the IMPACT Tag-Team Championships.

He says that Rich Swann and Willie Mack are in the way of them doing that. He claims that they are in the way of the power that VBD needs. He claims Swann and Mack will become the base of their monument of violence, noting there is a design, and it will be a violent one.

Scott D’Amore Makes Some Matches For Tonight’s Show

In another backstage segment, we see Matt Cardona approach Scott D’Amore, who ends up making a match that will feature Cardona and Eddie Edwards teaming up to take on the team of Moose and W. Morrissey.

Cardona mentions to D’Amore that he wants a shot at the IMPACT World Championship. D’Amore tells him to prove that he is worthy of one with his performance in the aforementioned tag-team match later tonight.

As Cardona walks off, up comes Rachael Ellering and Jordynne Grace, who talk about wanting a shot at the IMPACT Knockoutos Championship. D’Amore brings up the upcoming Knockouts Ultimate X match.

In comes Tasha Steelz, who is accompanied by Savannah Evans. They claim to be the only competition. D’Amore ends up making another match for tonight, which will see Ellering take on Evans.

Matthew Rehwoldt vs. Chris Sabin

We shoot to a backstage segment from last week’s show where Matthew Rehwoldt meets up with Chris Sabin and talks about how he took something negative about him on Ace Austin’s t-shirt and turned it into a positive.

Rehwoldt then mentions how he wants to see more of Sabin’s creativity first-hand. Sabin ends up taking this as a challenge, which is how the advertised Rehwoldt-Sabin bout for tonight was made.

On that note, we head back into the IMPACT Zone and out comes Rehwoldt and Sabin for our first match of the evening. Deonna Purrazzo makes her way out as well. “The Virtuosa” heads over to the commentary desk and joins Striker and Brown on guest commentary for this match.

The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. Early on we see some back-and-forth action and then as we settle into the bout a bit, Rehwoldt begins to gain the offensive upper-hand. He goes to work on Sabin and establishes the clear momentum advantage as we head to a mid-match commercial break.

When we return from the break, we see Rehwoldt is still in control of the action, as he takes it to Sabin while the fans in the building try and rally behind the longtime IMPACT veteran. This ends up working to some extent, as Sabin connects with a beautiful stunner that sees Rehwoldt get blasted into the top-rope.

Sabin keeps the momentum shift going, as he starts to establish his first offensive lead in the match. He blasts Rehwoldt with a variety of strikes as he fires up. He blasts Rehwoldt with a big boot in the corner and follows that up with a nice tornado DDT for a near fall.

Finally, we see Purrazzo leave her spot at the commentary desk. She gets involved in the match a bit, helping Rehwoldt by trying to distract Sabin in an attempt at shifting the offensive momentum back in Rehwoldt’s favor. It works at first, as he connects with a big running drop kick, however Mickie James ends up coming out.

The IMPACT Knockouts Champion and Purrazzo end up getting into a wild brawl that gets the crowd on their feet. As that is going on, we see Rehwoldt head to the top-rope. Sabin ends up catching him with the running kicks. He follows that up wiith his Cradle Shock finisher for the pin fall victory.

Winner: Chris Sabin

Scott D’Amore With Knockouts Ultimate X Update, Makes JONAH’s Debut Match

After the Sabin-Rehwoldt match wraps up, we head backstage again where we see Scott D’Amore meet up with Chelsea Green. He once again brings up the Knockouts Ultimate X match, this time revealing that he will announce the competitors for the bout on next week’s show.

Green tells D’Amore to call her regarding the match and leaves. Alisha Edwards enters the picture now and makes it clear to D’Amore that she wants in the match as well. This leads to D’Amore informing her of the same thing he just told Green, which is that he’ll decide who is going to be involved in the match next Thursday night on IMPACT On AXS TV.

Now we see Jai Vidal enter the scene. He tells D’Amore that he wants an opportunity inside the squared circle. D’Amore tells him that he has one opportunity, but warns him that he may not want it when he finds out what exactly it is.

Vidal insists that he wants the opportunity regardless of what it is, and then D’Amore informs him that he will be facing JONAH, formerly known as Bronson Reed in WWE, later tonight. This ends the segment and the announcers inform us that JONAH vs. Jai Vidal will be up next.

Jai Vidal vs. JONAH

We head back inside the building as Jai Vidal makes his way out and heads down to the ring for the match that he was just informed of against the debuting JONAH. He settles into the ring and is ready for the opportunity he saught out in the previous backstage segment.

With Vidal in the ring and ready to roll, out comes JONAH to a nice reaction from the IMPACT fans in the arena. He makes his way down and settles inside the squared circle as his theme music wraps up and the fans continue to make some noise for his first-ever match in the company.

The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. Straight out of the gate it’s apparent that this isn’t going to be the opportunity that Vidal had hoped for when he first approached D’Amore, as JONAH is barely moving when Vidal tries anything offensive.

JONAH then starts with some offense of his own and within a minute or two we see him hit a big splash off the top-rope for the easy pin fall victory in what was essentially a squash match showcase for the newest addition to the IMPACT Wrestling roster.

Winner: JONAH

JONAH Makes It Clear He’s Out To Prove He’s The Top Dog

Once the match wraps up, JONAH gets on the microphone and addresses the fans inside the building, as well as the IMPACT roster in the back.

He mentions how everyone is talking about “the top dog” and points out that he takes over wherever he goes. He talks about showing up in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) to confront IMPACT World Champion Moose face-to-face.

JONAH says he deserves to be the champion, not Moose. He then brings up Josh Alexander. He says he has heard from everyone that “The Walking Weapon” is the best wrestler in the world today. He claims that if that’s the case, Alexander must go through the top dog to prove it.

Trey Miguel & Steve Maclin Get Into Wild Brawl Backstage

Now we shoot to a video package that shows highlights from the three-way showdown between Trey Miguel, Laredo Kid and Steve Maclin for the IMPACT X-Division Championship at the IMPACT Turning Point 2021 special event from two weeks ago.

Once the package wraps up, we head backstage where Gia Miller is joined by the IMPACT X-Division Champion himself — Trey Miguel. He says it felt good to retain his title in the three-way match against Kid and Maclin, however he isn’t fully pleased. He mentions he wanted to retain his title by pinning Maclin, and notes that it didn’t go down that way.

From there he goes on to talk about how he will pin or submit Maclin the next time they meet inside the squared circle. He calls it his biggest challenge to date.

This leads to Maclin showing up out of nowhere and attacking Miguel from behind. He beats him down and ends up throwing a tool box at him. A security guard shows up and tries to break things up, however Maclin ends up laying him out as well.

After that, Maclin gets hold of a cord that is laying around nearby and wraps it around Miguel’s throat. He chokes the IMPACT X-Division Champion out until this time we see three security guards arrive on the scene to break things up. They do, however Miguel ends up breaking free and diving at Maclin to keep the brawl going. We cut away after that.

IMPACT Throwback Throwdown II Coming To IMPACT Plus On December 18

Once the Miguel-Maclin backstage brawl segment wraps up, we shoot to a special video trailer promoting the IMPACT Throwback Throwdown II special event on IMPACT Plus in just over two weeks on December 18, 2021.

Moose Comes To W. Morrissey With A Plan For Matt Cardona

Now we shoot to another backstage segment, as we see Moose approach W. Morrissey. The IMPACT World Champion tells Morrissey that they have to stop Matt Cardona.

Morrissey says he fails to see how that would benefit him. Moose mentions that if Cardona ends up pulling things off and somehow captures the world title, Morrissey won’t ever get a shot at it.

This leads to W. Morrissey questioning if Moose will ever give him a shot at the title if he continues to hold onto it. Moose assures Morrissey that if he helps him get past Cardona, he will give him the first shot at the title.

Rachael Ellering vs. Savannah Evans

We head back inside the building where the ring announcer gets us ready for our next match of the evening, which will be contested in the IMPACT Knockouts division.

With that in mind, we see Savannah Evans emerge and begin heading down to the ring for her one-on-one match against Rachael Ellering. She settles in the ring accompanied by Tasha Steelz and her music dies down.

Now the familiar sounds of Rachael Ellering’s theme plays as she makes her way out and heads to the squared circle as well. Her music fades down and this one is about to get underway.

The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one-on-one contest between Evans and Ellering. Early on we see Evans jump off to an early offensive lead, as she takes it to Ellering and controls the action.

As Ellering starts to fight back into competitive form, we see her get Evans down on the mat. She goes for a big leg drop, however Evans — while still laying on her back — catches the leg drop and takes back over again.

From there, Evans hits a big DDT for a close near fall on Ellering. After she recovers from the big spot, Ellering starts to show signs of life and she begins shifting the offensive momentum in her favor. The two trade back-and-forth shots and then Ellering blasts Evans with a big European uppercut.

Ellering remains in control of the action now, as she has Evans on the defensive and is looking to finish her off. Outside the ring, we see Tasha Steelz try to get involved. Jordynne Grace ends up chasing her around and eventually into the ring where Ellering lays her out. She follows that up by connecting on Evans with a cutter for the pin fall victory.

Winner: Rachael Ellering

Tenille Dashwood Brought Up To Speed, Wants To Meet The IInspiration

We shoot backstage where we see Kaleb With A K and Madison Rayne meeting up with Tenille Dashwood. Rayne and Kaleb bring Dashwood up to speed on what has been going on while she has been away.

They talk about the impact that The IInspiration has had since joining IMPACT Wrestling. Dashwood wants to meet up with them after hearing this.

When we return we shoot to another backstage segment where we see this meeting, as The Influence trio of Dashwood, Rayne and Kaleb meet up with The IInspiration duo of Cassie Lee and Jessie McKay.

The Influence and The IInspiration get to know each other a bit, and we see that Dashwood and Kaleb quickly hit it off with Lee and McKay. Rayne doesn’t quite seem to know what to make of their fast-friendship.

Violent By Design vs. Rich Swann & Willie Mack

Now we shoot back inside the building where we get ready for our next match of the evening. This will be the advertised tag-team bout pitting Joe Doering and Deaner of Violent By Design against the team of Rich Swann and Willie Mack.

The team of VBD makes their way out and head down to the ring for this one. Eric Young is with them as well, and remains at ringsiide for this one. Doering and Deaner wait for their opponents as their music dies down.

Out comes the fan-favorite duo of Swann and Mack to their fun-spirited, upbeat entrance theme music. The fans give them a nice reaction as they make their way down and settle into the ring. Their theme cuts off and this one is about to get started momentarily.

We hear the bell sound to get this one off-and-running. After some early back-and-forth action, we see VBD start to pull ahead into the offensive lead as the commentators talk us into a mid-match commercial break as the action continues in the ring.

As we settle back in from the break, we see VBD still dominating the action. Doering stops Swann on the ring apron but ends up hitting the steel ring post. This leads to Eric Young getting involved, as he distracts Swann. Deaner trips Swann as this is going on and then grabs the VBD flag.

Before he can do anything with the flag, as he clearly had intentions of using it as a match-ending weapon for his team, Doering gets hoisted up and brought down the hard way by Mack, as he connects with a Samoan Drop. Swann follows that up by hitting his 450 splash off the top-rope for the pin fall victory.

Winners: Rich Swann & Willie Mack

After The Match: VBD Attacks Swann & Mack, Rhino & Heath Make Save

Once the match wraps up, we see the VBD trio of Young, Deaner and Doering triple-team and beat down Swann and Mack. This continues until Rhino and Heath hit the ring to make the save.

The two end up cleaning house of the three VBD members. Young, Deaner and Doering end up heading to the back to end the post-match scene.

Johnny Swinger & Hernandez Talk, Rohit Raju & Lawrence D. Make Match

We shoot backstage after the tag-team bout and post-match scene wraps up, where we see Johnny Swinger talking to Hernandez. He mentions that he has not been this happy for a long time.

Rohit Raju and Raj Singh end up trying to sell Hernandez some cryptocurrency. They then complain about not being invited to Wrestle House 2 last week because they are not friends.

Lawrence D. shows up and says that the real reason they weren’t invited was because he did not want to deal with their ‘riff-raff.’

Rohit tells Lawrence that since he left, he became the X-Division Champion. Lawrence tells Rohit that he can prove how good he is next week in a match. He then sprays himself with Ring Rust as the backstage segment wraps up.

Moose & W. Morrissey vs. Matt Cardona & Eddie Edwards

It’s main event time on this week’s IMPACT On AXS TV, as we get ready for the big tag-team headline bout that was made by Scott D’Amore earlier in the show, with Moose & W. Morrissey joining forces to take on the team of Matt Cardona and Eddie Edwards.

From there, we head back inside the arena where the ring announcer gets us ready for our final bout of the evening. On that note, out comes the team of Moose and W. Morrissey. The duo garners some good heel heat as they make their respective ring entrances.

With Moose and Morrissey settled into the ring, they await the arrival of their opponents. Matt Cardona and Eddie Edwards make their respective ring walks and settle into the squared circle and look ready to go to war.

The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with our featured contest of the evening, which will be contested in the men’s tag-team division. Early on we see some back-and-forth action from both teams. Cardona and Edwards end up establishing the early offensive lead as we break for a mid-match commercial time-out.

As we settle back in from the commercial break, we see that the offensive momentum has shifted into the favor of Moose and Morrissey. The two big heels are starting to dominate the action now, as the fans in the building try and rally behind Cardona and Edwards.

Moose and Morrissey keep Edwards isolated in the ring, preventing him from making the much-needed tag to the fresher Cardona on the ring apron. Edwards ends up getting knocked out of the ring. He crashes out to the ringside area on the floor, but is brought right back into the ring by Moose. The IMPACT World Champion then proceeds to whip him into the corners of the ring with a vengeance.

Edwards slowly starts to recover and show signs of life, as he keeps attempting to get to his corner to make the tag to Cardona, but again, Moose and Morrissey continue to stop him from doing so. Morrissey grabs Edwards, but Edwards ends up connecting on him with a back-elbow.

This buys him some time to get to his corner to make the tag, but before he can, Moose takes Cardona off the ring apron and there is nobody for Edwards to tag when he finally has the opportunity to do so without being stopped. Edwards hits a chin-breaker out of nowhere on Moose and then he is finally able to make the tag to Cardona.

Cardona takes the hot tag and hits the ring like a caged animal. He unleashes on the IMPACT World Champion and lets out his frustrations after being called “Mid-Cardona” and having his WWE Intercontinental Championship reign belittled one time too many earlier in the show. He ends up connecting with the Re-Boot and looks to wrap this one up, however Morrissey ends up breaking up the pin attempt to keep the match alive.

The action continues and after a few moments, we see all four guys are down and out. They are each slow to get back to their feet, however when they do, Edwards sends Morrissey out to the floor and follows up by splashing onto him through the ropes with a running tope suicida.

After that, we see Moose connect with the uranagi on Cardona. He goes to follow that up with a spear, however Cardona avoids it and connects with the school-boy roll-up for a close two-count. Moose kicks out of that one, but then Cardona rolls him up again and ends up getting the three count to earn the pin fall victory.

Winners: Matt Cardona & Eddie Edwards

After The Match: W. Morrissey Lays Out Moose

Once the match wraps up, Cardona and Edwards celebrate their victory. After that, from out of nowhere, we see Morrissey turn on Moose. He lays out the IMPACT World Champion with a big boot to the grill.

He leaves him laying as the commentators and fans react. On that note, the show wraps up and we head off of the air. Thanks for joining us!
