Heath and Rhino and The Briscoes Confronted Impact World Tag Team Champions Violent By Design; Briscoes def. Heath and Rhino in an Impact World Tag Team Championship No. 1 Contender's Match
I don't think I've ever seen Rhino as fired up on the mic than he was during that opening segment. It made sense for him to be that intense given he was once a member of Violent By Design before they kicked him out last year. It makes all the sense in the world for him and Heath to eventually dethrone them as Impact World Tag Team Champions, but I would save that for Slammiversary at the earliest. In the meantime, it's cool that we're getting The Briscoes challenging for the tag titles at Under Siege. They had a fun match with Heath and Rhino and will are excellent addition to the IMPACT tag team ranks assuming they're here for the long haul.
Bhupinder Gujjar def. VSK
VSK has been a part of Matt Cardona's faction in the NWA, but it doesn't look like he'll be associated with them in IMPACT. Rather, he's just a good hand to have in the ring and help elevate other people. Gujjar's performances are impressive some weeks and this was one of those instances. Him having a quality opponent in VSK certainly helped. He and Shera faced off afterward, so that match is clearly coming soon.
Honor No More (Eddie Edwards, Matt Taven and Mike Bennett) def. "Speedball" Mike Bailey and The Motor City Machine Guns
Bailey was a perfect partner for Motor City Machine Guns after Bailey earned Alex Shelley's respect at Multiverse of Matches. He once again had a stellar showing while Motor City Machine Guns killed it per usual. That's not to take anything away from Honor No More, who were great as well. This was a very entertaining affair and Honor No More picking up the victory was the right call. Everyone came away from this looking awesome.
ROH Women's World Champion Deonna Purrazzo Attacked AAA Reina de Reina Champion Taya Valkyrie
I was curious if Valkyrie would be sticking around after beating Purrazzo for the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship at Rebellion and I'm glad it looks like she will be, at least for now. She cut a nice promo about her absence from IMPACT (though she was technically arrested in storyline the last time we saw her in early 2021) and Purrrazzo's attack on her was well done, seemingly setting up a rematch for Under Siege. Decay made their entrance for their match while Purrazzo was going after Valkyrie, which was a great touch given Valkyrie's history with Rosemary.
Decay (Rosemary and Havok) def. Impact Knockouts World Champion Tasha Steelz and Savannah Evans
I assumed we were going to get this match coming out of Rebellion seeing as how Havok made the save for Rosemary that night and Evans was involved in the finish. I can't say Steelz vs. Havok at Under Siege interests me at all, but like with Rosemary, Havok is another name for Steelz to beat. This was a well-worked tag team match to set that up and I'm glad it was Evans who was pinned and not Steelz.
Impact World Champion Josh Alexander def. Moose
I was surprised they gave away the rematch so quickly, but I guess that means IMPACT intends to move on to other stories for both men immediately. They have excellent chemistry together, so it's hard to complain. While this didn't reach the level as their Rebellion main event for obvious reasons, this was still a strong main event. Alexander had to fight from underneath, but he managed to pull out the victory in the end. Tomohiro Ishii emerged afterward and confronted Alexander, confirming that he's next in line for a shot at the title. I questioned why Ishii won at Multiverse of Matches and at Rebellion, but now we know why.
This show was another example of IMPACT properly following up on one of their hot pay-per-views. Doing Alexander vs. Moose again so soon after Rebellion seemed strange, but as previously mentioned, there isn't much turnaround time between Rebellion and Under Siege, so it was logical to jump right into Alexander vs. Ishii. The rest of this episode had energy, featured plenty of quality wrestling and set up several other matches for Under Siege. In other words, it was par for the course for IMPACT lately in that it was a top-notch show. This company continues to produce above-average programming week after week.
