Impact Report 2/17/22
— The show begins and IMPACT World Champion Moose makes his way down to the ring where IMPACT Wrestling EVP Scott D’Amore is awaiting a contract signing between the champion and his challenger for this weekend’s No Surrender pay-per-view, W. Morrissey. Moose says he believes there’s a legitimate chance that Morrissey doesn’t show up for their match after his attack on the challenger to close last week’s show. D’Amore assures Moose that Morrissey will compete this weekend and Moose says that even if he does show up, it won’t matter because Morrissey is about to step into the ring with a wrestling God. D’Amore tells Moose not to worry and asks Moose to sign the contract, which he does and Moose says D’Amore needs to be prepared to send yet another talent home this weekend. Moose signs the contract and exits the ring but Morrissey attacks out of nowhere and drills Moose with a boot to the face, then tosses Moose off the stage and ends the attack with a thunderous choke-slam. Morrissey goes down to the ring and signs the contact to make this weekend’s title match official.
