Trey Miguel def. Alan Angels in an Impact X-Division Championship Tournament Quarterfinal Match
It was cool to see Angels return to IMPACT after challenging Mike Bailey for the Impact X-Division Championship three months ago. He's a nice fit for the X-Division if he sticks around. Miguel feels like just another guy on the roster at this point despite having so much momentum at one point, so I'm glad he advanced in the tourney. This was a quality contest from two skilled athletes.
Rachelle Scheel def. Tasha Steelz by Disqualification
Steelz is back to doing nothing after losing her recent feud with Killer Kelly, so it's weird that we're seeing more of Steelz on TV than Kelly. This didn't end up serving much of a purpose, either. It appeared to be an easy enhancement match for Steelz, but then Savannah Evans got involved two minutes in and got Steelz disqualified. Steelz didn't care, so it's not as if they're building to a split between them. This was a waste of time.
Chris Bey def. Tommy Dreamer
I understand Dreamer is involved in this ongoing storyline with Bully Ray and whether he can be trusted or not, but I have zero desire to see him back in the ring on a regular basis. He competed at Bound for Glory, then at the post-pay-per-view show, and again here. He's not awful by any means, but does Bey really gain much from beating him? This was fine, but the focus was mostly on Moose and Bully Ray interacting at ringside and that costing Dreamer the win.
Matt Cardona def. Alex Shelley
I believe this marked Cardona's first singles match in IMPACT since returning at Bound for Glory. He and Shelley worked well together and had a pretty good match in the time allotted to them. Outside interference from Brian Myers allowed Cardona to pick up the win, but at least it protected Shelley in defeat. Heath and Rhino made the save for The Motor City Machine Guns afterward, so it's going to be The Major Players challenging Heath and Rhino for the Impact World Tag Team Championship at Overdrive.
Joe Hendry def. Raj Singh
I thought Hendry's gimmick was the dumbest thing in Ring of Honor and he didn't click for me the last time he was in IMPACT years ago, but for whatever reason, he's grown on me and he feels like the perfect fit for IMPACT at this point in time. He's a fan favorite for now, but his character may be better suited as a heel eventually. Nonetheless, this was a standard squash to give him another victory.
Gia Miller Conducted a Sit-Down Interview with Eddie Edwards
The Kingdom were fired during a backstage segment with Scott D'Amore at the start of the show, so it wasn't much of a shocker that Edwards officially disbanded Honor No More here, especially after PCO broke out on his own. Edwards also mentioned Vincent is in the hospital with injuries sustained at the hands of PCO, so time will tell if he'll be back or that line was meant to write him off the show. This interview also established that his next feud will, logically, be with PCO.
Impact Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace, Mickie James and Taylor Wilde def. Gisele Shaw and VXT
James' career was also on the line on this match whether she was pinned or not, so it doesn't only pertain to singles matches. She's clearly headed for future showdowns with Grace and Wilde, so there was no way her team was losing here. They were given plenty of time and it was a solid main event. James pinning Chelsea Green gave her a measure of revenge after Green beating her over the summer was what led to James taking a self-imposed sabbatical, so a rematch with James avenging that loss has to be coming.
There's a few more weeks between Bound for Glory and Overdrive than there was between Victory Road and Bound for Glory, so IMPACT hasn't had to rush into building up the Overdrive card and can instead take their time with it. I wouldn't go so far as to call this a great show, but we got the usual storyline progression and a handful of enjoyable matches, so it was largely an easy watch.
