#AskGSM is a weekly Q&A video where I, Graham "GSM" Matthews, answer fan questions from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in regards to the world of wrestling. Nothing is off limits, and this week's edition touches upon a variety of topics including:
Kimber Lee def. Taya Valkyrie
Valkyrie is contending for the Impact Knockouts Championship at Hard to Kill on Saturday, so I figured this would be a quick and easy win for her, especially since Lee has basically been positioned as a stepping stone thus far in IMPACT. That's why I was surprised by the outcome, even though Deonna Purrazzo and Susan (Su Yung's new alter-ego) factored into the finish. The match itself was fine albeit forgettable.
Ricky Starks def. Mike Verna
It's been great to see Verna on Dark these last few weeks and Starks never ceases to impress, so this was a great choice for the opener. Verna scored some offense and both guys shined before Starks picked up the obvious victory. Starks has been squashing enhancement talent on Dark for many months, but at least this was enjoyable and different than your typical Starks squash.
Randy Orton Challenged Triple H
Orton was originally scheduled to take on Drew McIntyre on this show before it was announced that McIntyre tested positive for COVID-19. Triple H opened the show instead and took exception to Orton belittling the Legends last week, setting the stage for a fight in the main event. It wasn't made official here, but it was heavily hinted at and forced viewers to remain tuned in to see if Triple H would accept Orton's challenge. I know these two haven't had a ton of matches together in the last decade (other than their one-off at Super ShowDown 2019), but I'm still bored to tears watching them interact because they completely lack chemistry. Shouldn't Orton be going after Goldberg, not Triple H?
