Impact Wrestling and House of Hardcore from 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania live on Impact Plus.
They had a pre-show hosted by Kid Ref on Twitch. He briefly spoke to Melissa Santos and Tommy Dreamer. Santos said she will be the ring announcer.
Blue Meanie is there. He said he only lives a few minutes away.
Sami Callihan intimated Kid Ref then pretended to be his friend as Kid ref look terrified.
Ace Romero vs. Jay XT in a Twitch match
Jake XT got the pin after a hurricanrana off the top rope followed by a flying head butt. This was a fast paced and athletic match. XT even managed to pick up Romero and slam him.
Josh Mathews and Scott D’Amore are the broadcast team. Don Callis will be working color for the New Japan show later tonight.
They did a 10-Bell Salute to long time pro wrestling photographer Lyle C. Williams who passed away.
Zachary Wentz, Trey Miguel, and Dezmond Xavier vs. Mad Man Fulton, Jake Crist, and Dave Crist
The Rascalz got the win.
D’Amore said Melina and Blue Meanie and “and other legends” are there. I believe Scott Hall is there too.
Moose vs. Luchasaurus
The same Moose finish like usual on these types of Impact I-shows. He shoved Luchasaurus into the ref then gave Lucha a kick to the groin while the ref was dazed and hit the spear for the pin.
Little Guido Maritato vs. Clayton Gainz (with The Double D Duprees)
Maritato got the pin after the kamikaze.
This was a good technical wrestling match overall. Guido at one point did repeatedly smother his face into the cleavage of both Duprees on the outside. Gainz clearly didn’t connect with a big kick from behind at one point and then did it over as the crowd chanted “You Fucked Up!” Lots of hard chops from Guido.
Knockout Champion Taya Valkyrie (with John E. Bravo) vs. Jordynne Grace
Valkyrie got the pin after Bravo pulled the referee out of the ring and hit Grace in the head with a chair.
This was a really good wild brawl of match. Bravo pulled Grace off the ring early on to allow Valkyrie to gain control on the outside.
Grace hit a senton then did a dive to the outside. When they were back in the ring they ran the ropes and Valkyrie hit a spear.
Grace hit a Vader Bomb then scooped Taya up and delivered the Grace Driver but Bravo pulled the ref out for the finish.
House of Hardcore TV Champion Willie Mack vs. Rich Swann vs. Teddy Hart
Mack pinned Hart after the 6-Star Splash after Swann was taken out by Super Canadian Destroyer.
Lots of dives and high risk moves as one would expect from all three. Hart was dropped off the apron by a cutter from Swann and then Swann and Mack traded hard hitting shots in the ring.
Sami Callihan vs. Eddie Edwards in a Philly Street Fight
Callihan rolled up Edwards for the pin and held the tights.
Mad Man Fulton ran in and slammed Edwards then Sandman came in and chased him to the back. Edwards went after Callihan with the kendo stick but got caught with the roll up and pin.
They immediately took turns driving each other into the big plywood boards set up in the ring at the start and took the action outside the ring.
They used a metal sheet, the ring bell, a chair, and a trash can as weapons on the outside.
Callihan charged around ringside to rush Edwards but Edwards threw a table at right at him.
Edwards gave Blue Thunder Bomb through plywood set up between to chairs in the ring during the match.
Joey Ryan vs. Billy Gunn
The match never happened. D-Lo Brown came out to the ring and said Gunn wasn’t there. (Mathews said Gunn had travel problems). Brown said the match would be rescheduled for another time.
Brown wanted to shake Ryan’s hand but of course Ryan tried to yank Brown’s hand to his crotch. Brown briefly fought him off. Ryan was eventually able to get Brown to touch his crotch and YouPorn Plexed him out of the ring.
The Great Muta and Tommy Dreamer vs. Michael Elgin and Johnny Impact (with Taya Valkyrie and John E. Bravo)
Muta pinned Impact after the Shining Wizard.
This was a chaotic scene with a long delay because there was a fan causing problems and it even distracted the wrestlers. Tommy Dreamer got on the mic and calmly, but sternly, told the crowd to chill out and have some respect or else he’d have Sandman come after them. It didn’t work. The fan was ejected a few minutes later and the crowd gave him the “goodbye” chant.
Bravo tried to get involved but Dreamer gave him a DDT.
Dreamer gave Impact a DVD from the apron onto Elgin who was laid out on a table below.
Dreamer was going to give Impact another one in the ring but Valkyrie gave him a low blow.
Muta sprayed the red and green mist at Impact and Elgin. Dreamer sprayed Valkyrie with some sort of clear mist and gave her a cutter.
After the match Dreamer got on the mic and said he didn’t want to go to WWF when he first started. He wanted to be in All Japan or New Japan. He said Muta, Sting, and Dusty Rhodes were his heroes. He said it was an honor to tag with Muta and he is welcome in HOH. Muta chose not to take the mic to speak. Dreamer said he just wanted Muta to know how loved he is in America.
