Moose def. Heath
This was for Moose's (fake) TNA World Heavyweight Championship, and if Heath won, he would have been granted a contract in IMPACT. I'm sure he'll be back even though he lost here, but it's also possible he only wanted to make a few appearances in IMPACT before going/signing elsewhere. That said, this was a super solid opener. Heath had a better chance of beating Moose than almost anyone else in recent months, so that added to the suspense of some of the nearfalls down the stretch. Moose vs. EC3 is obviously the endgame based on the promo EC3 cut later in the night.
Scorpio Sky def. Will Hobbs
As I've said before, Hobbs is a physically impressive specimen and shouldn't be getting beat as quickly as he has been lately. It just makes me take him less and less seriously every time he's brought back. As for Sky, he continues to climb the ranks with win after win. Even better than his decisive victory was his post-match promo, where he put everyone on notice and made note of how he's only one of two people to pin Chris Jericho in AEW. If he isn't competing for the AEW TNT Championship soon, then something is seriously wrong.
The Nightmare Sisters def. Mel and Penelope Ford in a Quarterfinal Match
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I couldn't care less about this ongoing angle with Allie, Brandi Rhodes and the rest of The Nightmare Family. Allie is clearly going to turn on Brandi at some point, and if the whole point of this tournament is to further that story and nothing more, then it will be a waste of time. What's worse is that any match involving The Nightmare Sisters is usually terrible and this was pretty bad, too. I applaud Ford for trying, but the rest of the women weren't able to hold their own as well. This was a train wreck.
United States Champion Apollo Crews def. MVP
After being off WWE TV for over a month, Crews has finally returned from wherever he was. It would have been nice for this to be advertised a week in advance, but I'm assuming the company didn't know Crews would be cleared to compete for this show when Raw aired last Monday. The technical difficulties were a bit distracting, but I understand they were done to hook viewers for the rest of the show. The match itself was solid and Crews now gets to keep both belts (though he did allude to his kids keeping the old U.S. title belt in a backstage promo afterward), but it was already announced later in the show that they'll meet in a rematch at SummerSlam. I thought the whole point of this program was to build to Crews vs. Bobby Lashley at some point?
