Impact Wrestling “Sacrifice” Results 2/22/20

Impact Wrestling and OVW “Sacrifice” results from Louisville, Kentucky at a sold out Davis Arena on 2/22/20 and live on Impact Plus:

Pre-show on Twitch:

Josh Mathews and D-Lo Brown are the announcers.

Brown said Davis Arena is historic hallowed grounds where Jim Cornette, Danny Davis, Rip Rogers, and Al Snow trained and developed the stars of the future over the decades.

Mathews said next month he wants these pre-shows on all social media platforms as well as Twitch to make it easier for fans.

D’Mone Solavino vs. AJ Daniels

They said Daniels was supposed to be in the pre-show last night for “OutBreakbut he was on another OVW show instead and that OVW show was sold out as well.

Daniels got the pin after a 450 splash.

Mathews mockingly ran down the rules of The King of the Mountain match to stretch for time before the next match.

Max The Impaler vs. Cali Young

Max got the pin after a spear despite repeated interference from Young’s “campaign manager”. Young does an American patriotic gimmick where she’s supposed to be running for president.

Main show:

Rohit Raju vs. Corey Storm

Raju got the pin after a diving double stomp.

Impact Tag Team Champions The North (Josh Alexander and Ethan Page) vs. Dez and Wentz

The North used their double team finisher to pin Wentz after interference from Rohit Raju during a ref bump. Real good match with all sorts of action and innovative spots.

There was a backstage interview with Ace Austin and Jimmy Jacobs but you could hardly hear it. There were audio issues with a backstage skit between Willie Mack and Johnny Swinger.

Kiera Hogan vs. Ray Lyn

Hogan got the pin after after Face the Music.

Willie Mack vs. Jay Bradley

Mack got the pin after a couple of stunners and the six star frog splash in a surprisingly quick match.

Backstage promo with OVE hyping the next match and Jake Crist’s match against Daga later.

Mad Man Fulton and Dave Crist (with Jake Crist) vs. Acey Romero and Larry D.

The referee caught Dave Crist with brass knuckles before the bell rang and he made him get rid of it.

D. pinned Crist after a right hand followed up by the pounce from Romero. After the match, Jake Crist helped Fulton attack the winners and Daga made the save to lead into the next match.

Daga vs. Jake Crist

Daga got the pin but I wasn’t able to see how with the picture lag. The ring announcer did announce the win as a pinfall. They had a long time. Crist kicked out of a top rope DVD. Daga kicked out as Crist caught him with a cutter as he came flying off the top rope.

Moose did a backstage interview with Jacobs to hype his match with Rhino tonight.

Johnny Swinger vs. Joey Ryan

Swinger cut a promo before the match and said Ryan looks like a combination of Freddy Mercury and George “The Animal” Steel. He said he’s a serious wrestler and a technician. He was carrying a VHS tape because his gimmick is retro 1980s. It’s supposed to be of all his greatest matches. He said he would give the tape to Ryan if Ryan agreed to lay down and let him win.

Ryan agreed and stuffed the tape down his trunks. He laid down and let Swinger cover him but of course it was all a plan and he rolled Swinger up with an inside cradle for a near fall.

Ryan got the pin on Swinger after Sweet Tooth Music. The first time Ryan tried to use the lollipop he accidentally shoved it in the referee’s mouth. Swinger hit him in the head with the VHS tape while the referee was distracted.

Impact Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace vs. Havok

Grace got the win by referee stoppage with a sleeper.

Tessa Blanchard was interviewed by Jacobs backstage. She said no titles were on the line tonight but if Ace Austin beats her, she will give him a title shot. But she said if she wins, she would like to add X-Division Champion to her list.

“Wildcat” Chris Harris was shown in the crowd. The announcers said he will be part of the TNA reunion event in April.

Moose vs. Rhino

Rhino won by Disqualification after a low blow right in front of the referee. As Moose was leaving the ring, Rhino got on the mic and challenged him to a No DQ Match.

Rhino vs. Moose in a No DQ Match

Moose got the pin after a spear into a table set up in the corner. Rhino used a stapler gun to the crotch of Moose. Moose later used a hammer on the foot of Rhino.

Impact World Champion Tessa Blanchard vs. X-Division Champion Ace Austin in a non-title match

Blanchard got the pin after a buzzsaw DDT on the top turnbuckle in a very good match.

They told a good story with Austin playing a smart opponent in having all of Blanchard’s key moves well-scouted to counter her. She went for the mini Magnum but he fought her off before she was finally able to hit it. She went for the buzzsaw DDT (after hitting the three suicide dives) but he turned it into a Northern Lights Suplex. She tried to go for it again and her rushed her into a corner. She came off the top rope with a Magnum but he caught her on the way down with a spin kick. She gave him a tilt a whirl DDT followed by a Canadian Destroyer but he kicked out.

Impact Wrestling “OutBreak” Results 2/21/20

Impact Wrestling and OVW results of their “OutBreak” event live on Twitch from Lexington, Kentucky at the Ice Center on 2/21/20: https://www.twitch.tv/impactwrestling

Corey Storm pinned Dimes after a diving double stomp in a pre-show match.

Ray Lyn pinned Cali Young in a pre-show match after dropping kicking Young into her male heel “campaign manager” who got on the ring and tried to interfere.

Josh Mathews and D-Lo Brown are the announcers.

Wentz vs. Maximus Khan

Khan pinned Wentz after a spear.

Joey Ryan vs. Dave Crist

Ryan pinned Crist after Sweet Tooth Music.

Willie Mack vs. Johnny Swinger

Mack got the pin after the stunner and frog splash.

Tony Gunn vs. Trey

Trey got the pin after a meteora.

Moose vs. Jay Bradley

Moose got the pin after the spear. Brown said it went almost 20 minutes. Crowd was behind Moose and into the match. Bradley kicked out of a superplex and Go To Hell. Moose kicked out of Bradley’s lariat finisher.

Tag Team Champions The North (Josh Alexander and Ethan Page) vs. Acey Romero and Larry D. in a nontitle match

The North got the pin on Romero after a double team slam off the ropes when it looked like he was about to splash Alexander before Page made the save. There were some good spots toward the end including Page running across the body of Romero to give D a cutter.

Rhino vs. Mad Man Fulton

Brown mentioned that Rhino was trained by Scott D’Amore. Mathews said Rhino could be in other companies making big money and taking it easy but he wanted to be in Impact working on all of these shows.

They said this will be under “old school rules” so weapons are allowed.

Rhino got the pin after the gore in a finish you usually see in Moose’s matches on these Twitch specials. The referee was bumped and Fulton gave Rhino a low blow. He then tried to hit Rhino with a chair but Rhino ducked and hit the gore.

They used chairs, a trash can and a kendo stick as weapons. Rhino hit Fulton with the trash can and Brown said the crowd was watching in “stunned silence” but they did chant for the gore. Fulton chokeslammed Rhino on the can for a near fall.

Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace vs. Havok vs. Kiera Hogan vs. Megan Bayne in a non-title match

Havok submitted Bayne to the Boston Crab set up by the choke bomb. Bayne and Havok were in there one on one for a lot of time in a typical 4-Way when Hogan and Grace were knocked to the outside until it was their time to come back in.

Impact World Champion Tessa Blanchard and Daga vs. Ace Austin and Jake Crist

Blanchard pinned Crist after the Buzzsaw DDT.

Blanchard was greeted with a respectful applause. She was in early on against Crist and there was a chain wrestling exchange between the two. Seeing Blanchard in the ring against men so often, I really don’t consider it inter gender wrestling now because she works so well with people in the ring.

Daga was isolated in the heel corner after a cheap shot kick by Austin. They worked him over for a long time before he made the hot tag to Blanchard. The referee didn’t see the tag and he made her go back to her corner. The heels pulled Daga back to their corner to beat on him some more.

Daga finally made the legal tag and Blanchard cleaned house taking on both guys as Daga recovered. She gave Crist a mini Magnum and a tilt a whirl DDT to Austin.

This show was not good. Lots of boring and plodding action with really bad indie level comedy stuff. The crowd seemed bored overall but it looked like a decent size crowd for the venue. The main show started at 7pm EST and it ended at 9: 35 EST right against WWE Smackdown. The Twitch viewer numbers held steady with about 700 people average the entire show.
