Kylie Rae, Susie, Alisha Edwards, Havok and Neveah def. Kimber Lee, Taya Valkyrie, Rosemary, Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz
It didn't matter who teamed with who since it will every woman for themselves in the Gauntlet match at Slammiversary. It got a bit too hectic at times with so many people involved, but everyone held their own and had their time to shine. They also managed to keep the action entertaining for the most part and Susie picking up the win for her team was a surprise. This match just further proved how stacked IMPACT's Knockouts division is at the moment and that Gauntlet matchup on Sunday should be fun.
The Deaners def. XXXL
As I've said before, IMPACT has a fair amount of teams in its tag division, but none of them remotely mean anything outside of The North and possibly The Rascalz. It feels like IMPACT is throwing these teams in random matches with zero stakes at this point to fill television time. This was a fine match that thankfully didn't last long. Unfortunately, XXXL attacking The Deaners afterward likely means the feud will continue.
Crazzy Steve and Tommy Dreamer def. Rohit Raju and Moose
What a weird mismatch of talent. A mystery partner was advertised for Moose, but he ended up going with Raju because everyone else declined, so that was a letdown. Then again, I'm assuming IMPACT is saving all the surprises for Slammiversary, so I guess I should have figured that it wouldn't be anyone major. This was as mundane as you'd expect it to be, though Steve winning for his team was odd. Dreamer rarely wins in IMPACT, so you'd think he would've been the one to beat Raju to build momentum going into Slammiversary. Nevertheless, it was the right outcome.
Video packages aired for most of the major matches set to take place at Slammiversary this Saturday, which was logical with this being the go-home show. There was also a contract signing for Jordynne Grace vs. Deonna Purrazzo which was well done, an outside brawl between Hernandez and Rhino which was random because neither of them will be in action at the event as of now, and a nicely-shot fight between Trey and Ace Austin in an empty gym where The Rascalz normally train apparently. IMPACT did the best they could given the circumstances, but this wasn't a hot go-home show by any means. That said, the card has potential on paper and the teases for who could be showing up have been masterful. I'm looking forward to Slammiversary, even if there wasn't anything exceptional about this edition of IMPACT! Wrestling.
