Eric Young def. Willie Mack
I really liked how they opened the show with the backstage brawl between Young and Mack and how that led to them having a formal match. That was well done and I appreciated how it felt like a fight following Young's vicious attack on Mack's good friend Rich Swann last week. This was exactly what it needed to be and resulted in a nice momentum-building win for Young.
Jordynne Grace def. Kimber Lee
Lee has largely been utilized as a stepping stone for the rest of the Knockouts division since being brought in a few months ago, and after seeing her work, I'm totally fine with that. She plays her role well and had one of her better showings here. However, this was all about Grace picking up a decisive victory before she meets Deonna Purrazzo in a Knockouts Championship rematch at Emergence. Also, 30-minute Iron Man match? Sign me up!
Tasha Steelz and Kiera Hogan def. Nevaeh and Havok in a No Disqualification Tag Team Match
I've made it known in these reviews that I've been no fan of this feud, especially since it hasn't been firmly established who viewers were supposed to be rooting for. That aside, this was better than I thought it would be and easily the best bout these four women have had together to date. They made effective use of the No Disqualification stipulation and I'm glad Steelz and Hogan went over in the end.
Suicide vs. Dez Ended in a No Contest; The Good Brothers Challenged Ace Austin and Madman Fulton to a Match at Emergence
I was wondering coming into this contest why it was happening and we quickly found out why. It was merely a backdrop for Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson to come in and lay everyone out. The match could have been fun, but with no reason to care about it, I can't say I'm disappointed it was interrupted. It was more important to further the feud between The Good Brothers and Austin and Fulton and it was logical for Gallows and Anderson to be livid after being "arrested" thanks to Austin's antics last week.
Impact World Champion Eddie Edwards def. Brian Myers
Yes, it was certainly questionable for Myers to make his anticipated arrival after weeks of vignettes and immediately lose, but then again, this was a pretty prominent position for him to be in and he looked credible in defeat. Myers has a chance to show the world what he's truly capable of now that he's gone from WWE. I'm not overly optimistic because of how he didn't light the world on fire when he was fired the first time in 2014, but he deserves another shot, especially after the strong showing he had here. It was an entertaining main event and Edwards continues to deliver as champion.
For the record, I don't cover the "matches" that happen on Wrestle House because, let's face it, they aren't really matches. I don't really care for Wrestle House to be honest, but I can see why some fans enjoy it. The rest of the show was perfectly solid as everything seemed to serve a purpose (which IMPACT typically does a nice job of), the matchups were well wrestled, Myers made his (re-)debut in the main event, and the hype for Emergence was strong. The card for the two-week event looks superb on paper and I'm hoping it can keep IMPACT's recent momentum going.
