Impact Wrestling Results (7/12) – Bully Ray/Joseph Park, Aries’ Championship Address, Aces & Eights Strikes

Bill Pritchard

[Q5] Austin Aries made his way to the ring. Aries said he proved everyone wrong. He said it wasn't just a great moment for him or for the company. He said it was a great moment for all of professional wrestling. He had to calm the crowd down as they were going out of their minds. He shushed them, which garnered a chuckle from me.

Aries said there was a new energy in Impact Wrestling. He said wrestling was ready for the next boom period, and he was the man to lead Impact Wrestling into the next one. He declared himself the most important wrestler, and TNA the most important company today.

Bobby Roode decided to join the fun and he slowly made his way to the ring with a stunned look on his face. Either that or he recently farted. No one can tell.

Roode looked around the arena and eventually made his way inside the ring. He grunted and fumed at Aries for a moment and tried not to cry. He kept saying "This, all of this" before continued to shake and grunt. He repeated the shtick far too many times.

Roode finally managed to say spit out "fluke" before storming off…

Sting and Hogan discussed Aces and Eights in Hogan's office. Devon and Garett Bischoff showed up and they offered to have Hogan and Sting's back. Hogan said they had things under control…

4. Miss Tessmacher vs. Gail Kim for the Knockouts Championship. Tessmacher was dominant early , but Kim quickly came back. Kim began to work over Tessmacher as Brooke discussed all the rings she booked the Knockouts for. Kim locked in the Cattle Mutilation out of nowhere. Tessmacher reversed it into a pin attempt.

Kim went for Eat defeat off of the top rope but Tessmacher shoved her off. Tessmacher followed with a flying elbow to put her challenger away.

Miss Tessmacher defeated Gail Kim to retain the Knockouts Championship in 5:12
