Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers vs. Frankie Kazarian, Sami Callihan & Eddie Edwards
From there we head back inside the IMPACT Zone where The Good Brothers theme hits and out comes the IMPACT Tag-Team Champions Gallows and Anderson.
As they settle into the ring the theme hits to bring out “The Invisible Hand” Don Callis. He then brings out the AEW and IMPACT World Champion Kenny Omega.
The Elite trio settle into the squared circle and await the ring entrances of their opponents for tonight’s stacked six-man tag-team main event here on the post-Homecoming edition of IMPACT On AXS TV.
We head to a commercial break as “The Cleaner” settles into the ring alongside Gallows and Anderson. When we return from the break it’s time for our baby face team to have their ring entrances for tonight’s main event.
Out first comes former IMPACT Champion Sami Callihan. He is joined by Eddie Edwards who comes out to the fans singing along with his theme song. Finally, the duo are joined by “The Elite Hunter” himself Frankie Kazarian.
Kaz and Omega brawl and this match gets off with a bang as the bell sounds to officially get it started. Everyone brawls early on and then Kazarian and Omega settle in the ring as the legal men for their respective squads.
We see “The Elite Hunter” jump off to an early offensive lead, taking it to Omega, however it doesn’t take long for the AEW and IMPACT Champion to shift the offensive momentum into his favor. Shortly after that, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.
When we return from the break the commentators inform us that there will be no more commercial breaks. In the ring we see The Elite utilizing frequent tags to keep fresh men in the ring at all times, as they deliver more and more punishment to Kazarian.
Finally, Kaz makes the tag to Eddie Edwards, however it isn’t long before he too finds himself on the defensive against the three top title holders in IMPACT not named Josh Alexander. Edwards starts to show signs of life as he fights back and takes it to the big man of The Elite trio, Gallows, blasting him with a drop kick off the top rope.
We see Callihan finally get tagged in, as does Omega. D’Lo talks about these two being old friends as Sami beats down Kenny in the corner of the ring, putting the boots to him. We see interferences from everyone on both teams and Omega gets V-Trigger happy. The Elite clear the ring of everyone but Callihan and all three guys splash onto Sami in the corner.
Now the trio hits a double-neck-breaker / side-suplex for a near fall. They look for a double-team finisher with the Magic Killer but Kazarian hits the ring to break it up. Edwards tags in as does Anderson. Anderson hits a spinebuster on him and the crowd goes silent. Eddie hits Blue Thunder on Anderson. Sami and Omega, meanwhile, are fighting on the ring apron outside of the ring ropes.
Callihan hits a piledriver on the hard part of the ring apron and then Edwards scores the pin on Anderson in the ring after hitting the Boston Knee Party. The theme for Edwards hits and the fans sing along again as highlights are shown of this excellent six-man tag-team main event match-up.
Winners: Frankie Kazarian, Sami Callihan & Eddie Edwards
W. Morrissey Attacks Eddie Edwards To End The Show
Once the post-match highlights wrap up we see Callis squeezing the fingers of Omega on the floor as the commentators speculate about a potential neck injury.
As everyone starts to leave and it appears the show is about to wrap up, out of nowhere W. Morrissey hits the ring and beats down Eddie Edwards, leaving him laying as the fans boo and the show goes off the air. Thanks for joining us!
