IMPACTonAXSTV episode —
We start off the show with Juice Robinson and Chris Bey backstage getting hyped for the tag match they have. When they got looking for Ace, they find him laid out in the parking lot after being attacked. Tommy Dreamer walks out to see if Ace is OK. Juice and Bey immediately ask Dreamer where Bully Ray is and if he did this.
The match ends up being Juice Robinson & Chris Bey instead of Ace Austin & Chris Bey, for obvious reasons.
Lots of tension between Juice & Bully before the match can even start. Bully and Dreamer pick up the victory when Billy pins Robinson. Juice is after Bully!
Bully hits Juice with the Bully Bomb and then covers him for the victory.
Post-match, Bully tells Chris Bey that he wasn’t the one who attacked Ace.
We go backstage to a video of Rhyno and Heath delivering a message to the IMPACT Tag Team Champions!
We go backstage to a single locker of Bully Ray. Dreamer approached Billy and Dreamer wants the truth from Ray about who attacked Ace. Moose interrupts and says it could’ve been either one of them. Calls Ray a scum bag and says he is too, so it could’ve been him and nobody would know it.

The same night, Kazarian will face Josh Alexander. Frankie goes on to discuss how wrestling has brought him successes and failures but also gave him his wife Traci Brooks and their son Rebel.
