Impact Report 6/9/22
Join us tonight for up to the minute results from the latest episode of Impact Wrestling. Coverage begins at 8pm. We start the show with a recap of last weeks show. It highlights the return of Sami Callahan and his feud with Moose. He wants for revenge for Moose breaking his leg. There is also a new song to start the show. Matthew Rehwoldt and Tom Hannifan are on the call.
Match 1. Tenille Dashwood (with Madison Rayne) VS Rosemary
Havok is missing in action, so Rosemary will have to go this alone. Rosemary is a notoriously fast starter, and this match proves no different. Elbows, splashes and exploder suplexes highlight her attack. Madison interferes on the outside and Tenille takes advantage of it with punches in the corner. Rosemary recovers and locks on the upside down. Rayne lays in another cheap shot to break up the hold. Dashwood gets a two count. Rosemary finds herself in the full nelson, but backs Tenille into the corner and rolls out of the hold. Both get to their feet throwing punches. Rosemary splashes Dashwood. She then does the floating over cross face. Dashwood escapes, but takes a German suplex. Rosemary gets a two count. Rosemary rolls up Tenille after knocking Madison off the apron and gets the win.
They attack Rosemary post match, but Taya Valkyrie comes out to make the save. It appears the longtime partners still have uneasy feelings for each other, but they stand tall post match.
The Good Brothers are shown driving out to Sandy Fork, The Briscoe’s farm. Back from break, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows are on the farm, making fun of the farm and the people and children on it. They visit the chicken coup. Papa Briscoe tells the Good Brothers to get off his farm. They then say they are going to beat him up. Just then, Jay and Mark Briscoe show up and a fight breaks out. This is basically a cinematic match at this point. Papa Briscoe comes out with a huge wrench and Mark gets a sharp edge farm tool and Jay grabs a steal rod. The site of this seems to have the Good Brothers on the run. We go to break.
Heath is shown backstage. Gia Miller walks up and asks about Rhino. Heath says it will be months away and he needs surgery. Honor No More attacked Rhino last week. Heath implies he will take HNM himself if he has to.
Match 2. Steve Maclin VS PCO
The two trade shoulder blocks and clotheslines to start the match. PCO then spears Maclin threw the ropes. They both tumble to the floor. PCO is bleeding from the mouth already. He then planchas onto Maclin from the ring. Maclin recovers and returns the favor. Maclin lands a spine buster on the ramp. We go to break.
Maclin is in control as we return. PCO hits a clothesline and climbs to the top, but Maclin greets him there. Maclin connects with a superplex. PCO quickly kicks out. PCO hulks up and splashes and clotheslines Maclin, culminating with a DDT and cannonball. Maclin is in trouble. PCO moonsaults Maclin on the apron from the top rope. PCO crashes into the steps trying to hit another cannonball. His mouth is bleeding a lot. Maclin sets up PCO upside down on the guard rail and runs into him with a knee. PCO has been favoring his shoulder since the break. Maclin puts his shoulder inside the stairs and levels him. His shoulder is out of socket. Gross. PCO pushes away the refs and Maclin finishes PCO off in the ring for the pin.
Winner. Steve Maclin
PCO refuses to stay down and runs off Maclin even with a brutal injury.

Doering is just so massive. He is a All Japan Triple Crown winner. Josh locks on a headlock that takes Joe a long time get free. Josh sweeps the leg and boots Joe in the head. Doering reverses a whip and hits a massive side body block. Josh looks like he got hit by a bus. Josh kicks out of a pin attempt at two. Doering pounds on Josh for a few mins, slowing the match down. EY and Deaner cheer him on from the floor. Joe locks on a chin lock, but after a few mins, Josh punches free. He hits a few punt kicks and then a knee to the back of the head from the 2nd rope.

Moose finds Sami, or Sami finds Moose I should say. They start brawling backstage. Weapons are being used, as well as doors and concrete walls. Moose starts to take the upper hand and punches Sami to a bloody mess. He tries to leave the room, but is locked in. Sami smiles and shows him the key. After racking Moose’s eyes with the key, Sami leaves and locks Moose back in the room.

Main Event. Honor No More, Eddie Edwards, Mike Bennett and Matt Tavin VS Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley (The Motor City Machine Guns) and Frankie Kazarian
