Impact Wrestling ‘Genesis’ event recap



Here is your full recap of tonight’s episode of Impact Wrestling entitled ‘Genesis’ that aired on POP TV:

Match #1: Matt Sydal defeats EC3 (c) to win the Impact Grand Championship 

This was a good match. Sydal asked for this match to not be Grand Championship rules but to be old school rules, and his wish was granted. EC3 has spent the past couple of months calling Matt Sydal a choke artist but would eat his words after Sydal hits EC3 with a Shooting Star Press to win the Impact Grand Championship. 

  • A couple of backstage pre-tapes are shown of Eli Drake, Johnny Impact, and Alberto El Patron getting ready for their cage match tonight
  • We get a special look at Allie’s road to the Knockouts Championship match.

Match #2: Laurel Van Ness (c) defeats Allie to retain the Knockouts Championship 

This was a pretty good match. Allie has been though hell and high water to get to this moment, but Laurel Van Ness is looking to crush Allies dreams of becoming champion. Allie got a near fall on Laurel and had all the momentum in her corner. Van Ness pushes Allie into the ref for a quick distraction and nails Allie with the Championship to pick up the win. 

  • Next is special look at the rivalry between Moose and Bobby Lashley. 

Match #3: Moose defeats Bobby Lashley

This match was fine. Moose has been trying to rid Impact of Lashley and ATT for months and tonighthas one last chance to do so. Moose picks up the win after delivering not one but two Discus Clothesline’s to Lashley. After the match Lambert tells Lashley that this is his fault. Lashley pushes down KM and then throws Lambert in to the ring. Lashley and moose beat down on Lambert and then Lashley spears Lambert through a table. 

Match #4: Taji Ishimori (c) defeats Andrew Everett to retain the X-Division Championship

This match came to us in progress from Pro Wrestling Noah. What little of the match was shown was really good. Ishimori hits Everett with the 450 Splash to get the win. 

Match #5: Eli Drake (c) defeats Johnny Impact and Alberto El Patron in Six Sides Of Steel to retain the Impact Grand Championship

This was a pretty good match. These 3 men have been at each other’s throats for months and tonightit will come an end, if Drake can escape as the winner. Patron is inches away from crawling out of the door but Adonis nails him with the door. After Drake and Impact are both climbing out of the cage and Impact drops down but is caught and held by Adonis so that Drake can hit the floor first. Eli Drake leaves still the champion and Impact and Patron can never challenge for the championship again.
