Dang we’re kicking things off with the X Division Championship three way match. This is how you do it, excitement from the get go.
Chris Bey (c) vs. Rohit Raju vs. TJP w/ Fallah Bahh – X Division Championship
TJP really making his mark in the beginning of this one. A real showcase of his skills for a good portion of the open. Eventually Rohit and Bey start working together as we all knew they would. TJP is still running rings around them though the numbers game does start taking its toll on him. Man TJP is wild, he does so much stuff that I’ve never seen before. The double teams between Raju and Bey always seem to get foiled by TJP. Bey accidentally roundhouse kicks his friend Rohit in the head. Dang. TJP and Bey go at it one on one for a while and TJP hits a sweet Tombstone before attempting to go high risk but Raju is back to ruin it. Is this match just here to put TJP over? He effortlessly overcomes the numbers game again and once more excerpts his submission prowess over the two men. Rohit finally showing what he’s all about with some fire strikes. Rohit back to the outside and Bey is now back in control. Gutwrench into a DDT from Bey and a cover on TJP…but only a two count. TJP has too much life in him yet. This has been a superbly worked match so far. So fun. TJP stretches Bey and almost has him tapping but Rohit stops the X Division champion from tapping out. The numbers game is finally getting to TJP. TJP and Bey go up top and struggle back and forth, it looks like TJP is going to take Bey down with a huge suplex but Raju is back. He pushes TJP off the top and delivers a huge double footstomp to Bey! WHAT?! They were supposed to be friends! Raju covers Bey…1…2…3…NO WAY! Rohit Raju is your new X-Division Champion!
Winner and NEW X Division Champion – Rohit Raju
WrestleHouse is up next and Johnny Bravo’s Dog and Crazzy Steve’s Monkey talk about the upcoming Kylie Rae and Taya Valkyrie match. Obviously Bravo is rooting for Taya whereas Steve has Kylie’s back. This makes Bravo mad and the playdate is over. Crazzy Steve talks about how everyone in the house is going crazy. Acey confronts Larry D for smelling bad and dressing like a backup member of Boys2Men…wow, Lawrence D has no time for that, women love him. Or at least one of them does. Wow.

Moose and Trey kick this one off both trying to use their best attributes. Moose attempts to throw Trey around but Trey overcomes it with his speed until Moose finally takes him down and out. Trey constantly sticks and moves but nothing he seems to do can chop down the massive tree that is Moose. Moose is just grinding down the Fresh Prince of Mid-Air at this point. Moose is like a runaway train and a HUGE fallaway slam to Trey. Dang Moose is bashing Trey’s brains in. Trey making a comeback with some huge forearms, you can see the fire.

Another #Heath4IMPACT video where he talks about Joe Biden stealing his thunder by announcing his running mate on a Tuesday. He wants #Heath4IMPACT trending tonight because Rhino needs help to get revenge on Reno Scum. Oh and he’s still got kids.
The Good Brothers vs. Ace Austin and Madman Fulton
Anderson and Austin start things off and Anderson is in control. Austin is looking to tag out quick but Anderson keeps on top of him. Luke Gallows tagged in, not for long though, works over Ace Austin but tags Anderson back in. Classic tag team action here, really textbook stuff but great stuff all the same. Gallows and Fulton finally both in and slugging it out, big clotheslines but neither man goes down. Neither team give an inch for long. This one has been nothing short of a fight, even Ace Austin is just straight up scrapping. Nasty doubleteam work as Fulton slams Anderson onto Austin’s knees. Ace Austin uses his signature card to papercut inbetween the fingers of Karl Anderson. Fulton and Austin work over Anderson but a HUGE spinebuster from Anderson to Austin turns things around. Big Luke Gallows in and Gallows is clearing house. Attempt at a Magic Killer on Ace Austin but Fulton is in to break it up. Fulton and Big LG to the outside and Gallows is sent into the turnbuckle.

Back in WrestleHouse the Deaners find someone stole their beer. They question Acey Romero who approaches the fridge but Susie reminds them of their truce and breaking a truce is bad. Lawrence D joins the party and asks Rosemary if she wants to go to the big match with him tonight right in front of John E. She says she’s reffing but they’ll have a rain check and do something next week. John E is clearly jealous. Susie and Cousin Jake have another moment Cody asks if their date last week didn’t go so well and Cousin Jake says that is correct.
Taya Valkyrie vs. Kylie Rae
Kylie tries for a handshake but Taya is having none of it. Kylie starts off hot but Taya comes back with some sick forearms in the corner. It doesn’t last long as Kylie takes back the driver seat but Rosemary, the ref, trips Kylie. Taya starts pulling some dirty tricks and Rosemary completely ignores them. Taya lays a beating on Kylie with kicks and choking her on the ropes. Kylie just can’t seem to make a comeback as Taya dominates. Superkick out of nowhere and a pin only gets a 2 for Kylie as Rosemary counts slow. Huge suplex from Taya that only gets a 2 of its own and Taya is furious. She and Rosemary scream at each other.
