The Impact World Championship Main Event, Brian Cage vs. Michael Elgin, is a showdown that we have been waiting for ever since Michael Elgin burst on the scene in Toronto at Rebellion. Michael Elgin ruined the celebration of Brian Cage and sent him to the ER. It has been the calling card of Michael Elgin ever since. Come to IMPACT, send people to the ER and do it again. Send a message. Take your place at the table. Never before has one man caused such chaos on IMPACT Wrestling. Remember on his first night in IMPACT Wrestling, Johnny IMPACT was involved in a Championship Match, but ultimately it took IMPACT quite some time to win the World Title. Elgin didn’t wait in lines, he cut right to the front and anointed himself. Who is the king? Who is the face of the franchise? Brian Cage thought it was him. Brian Cage thought that the Machine had arrived and after Rebellion there would be confetti falling from the rafters and life would be grand, longing for that one perfect moment. Cage deserved that moment and it was ripped from him. Taken as quickly as it happened, Cage won the title and Elgin emerged. This will be a war on Sunday, a battle between two men who are ready to do whatever it takes to survive and win and leave as Champion. Who has what it takes? Who will dig deep to win? Who can outlast the other? This world title main event plus 3 other championship matches and more tonight as Impact Wrestling celebrates its 17th anniversary with Slammiversary XVII live from Gilley's in Dallas, Texas! Here's the lineup for the show:

Impact World Championship Match: Brian Cage (c) vs. Michael Elgin

Impact X-Division Championship Match: Rich Swann (c) vs. Johnny Impact

Singles Match: MOOSE vs. Rob Van Dam

Monster's Ball Match for the Impact Knockouts Championship: Taya Valkyrie (c) vs. Rosemary vs. Su Yung vs. Havok

Three Way Match for the Impact World Tag Team Championship: The North (Ethan Page & Josh Alexander) (c) vs. LAX (Ortiz & Santana) w/ Konnan vs. The Rascalz (Dez & Wentz) w/ Trey

Intergender Match: Sami Callihan vs. Tessa Blanchard

First Blood Match: Eddie Edwards vs. Killer Kross

it's because you're a filthy dirty mark. Even Lance Storm said he is into this match and he doesn't like intergender wrestling either.

Also when did people start giving a fuck about intergender wrestling? Back in the day nobody gave a shit about it and I never even thought one way or another about it. Now it's some big topic of debate between filthy marks who need to be castrated.

Let me elaborate on this a bit more just for funsies.
Freehaven said he didn't think the show was too special, another guy disagreed with him but didn't really explain why only saying everyone was afraid to admit the show was as good as person 2 thought it was.
Sage replied that the guy can't just say something subjective without providing a reason in a mocking way

And then you show up to pick a fight, just for the sake of arguing not about the show about about the guy himself, derailing the discussion into this bullshit about

guess meltzer and garrett are not going to review it even though they were going to. They talked about tessa vs sami and then how nobody watches impact. Anyways. twitter is pretty hype and everyone who was there seemed to love it. A lot of people liked it more then the G1. All the talent seems really proud of what they did.

Meltzer likes WWE because he grew up with them
Meltzer likes NJPW because their style of wrestling is his favourite style of wrestling
Meltzer likes AEW because Kenny Omega and the Bucks and because he thinks they are going to popularise NJPW style to the US

It's not about him getting paid, it's about the fact that Impact's style doesn't appeal to him. I personally disagree, but he's welcome to his opinions, I just wish the wrestling community didn't put him on a pedestal so high

That Elgin/Cage match was dope. I was hoping Rhyno would come back to IMPACT and he will hopefully have some nice boss fights with Elgin and Cage. I get why they went with Tessa and Sami as the main-event, but the title match should have gone on last. I can't really remember the last world title match at PPV that didn't deliver, so it should always be their main-event

wrong. the report was that the 7/19 & 7/20 windsor tapings were going to be the first AXS tapings, so they were doing recap shows for the next two weeks to build to the premiere.

now the "Fallout" show happening on Sunday is a TV taping (I think it airs next week but don't quote me). They billed it last night as "Slammiversary Fallout" and were advertising that it would be a night of tag team matches, lethal lottery style, so it could mean Cage teaming with Elgin and Tessa teaming with Callihan.

Regarding the Santana "injury", I seem to recall a few weeks (maybe a month or so ago-damn memor...i like jello) ago, that he had a knee injury at a small show and there was a tweet from him talking about maybe having to take some time off. I have a feeling last night was mostly a work, and now LAX can take a bit of time off to "heal". That's okay with me, I like seeing the North as current tag champs, and if LAX can take their time, and Impact is willing to pay them to do so (why not? they seem like they haven't taken time off since they showed up a few years ago), this might give them the impetus to re-sign with Impact as their contracts are up soon. Plus, the way LAX/EYFBO travels, I can't see them getting locked into any "exclusive" contracts, at least not right now.
I liked last night's show, for what I could see. Taima was on permanent buffer for me, so I would get 20 seconds of action-then 3 minutes of buffer buffer buffer.
I'll just catch a dailymotion of it later in the week.

"loving to travel" and "creative freedom" are all empty words if the check is big enough. We have no idea how much AEW is throwing at people to have them, but you can bet your ass the Bucks want them for their matches where the Bucks win. And WWE is paying 6 figures at people to make sure they go nowhere else. LAX could work NXT, NXT UK and EVOLVE full time

This seemed like a "soft writeout" If they can re-up, they come back from injury with a renewed push. If not, they have Ortiz put over a few guys on the way out and they don't draw a lot of attention to their biggest tag draw leaving.

There is one other thing though, as it seems like AEW isn't on bad terms with Impact and MLW. So if they do let talent work schedules outside of AEW, and not on absolute "exclusvitity", it would be a win-win all around. I hope AEW doesn't have a stick up their ass about this, and give talent some leeway.

[citation needed]
They are edging Impact & MLW out of the marketplace. MLW just cut ties with AAA because of AEW getting first dibs. They're going to lose MJF & Jimmy Havoc. Meanwhile Impact is having to deal with Cage trying to work AEW pre shows and risk devaluing the Impact world title, while he, Kross and Scarlett are all using AAA to angle for AEW gigs.

>So if they do let talent work schedules outside of AEW, and not on absolute "exclusvitity", it would be a win-win all around.
AEW is 100% exclusivity. Haven't you been following any of this? Janela is leaving the indies at the end of the summer. Kip Sabian's final dates are wrapping up next week. Sammy Guevara & Kylie Rae are already done on the indies. They *just* pulled Shawn Spears from an indie yesterday then reversed course when they got blowback. They're not letting NJPW use Moxley in the states. They pulled Penta & Fenix from Impact & MLW.

what would you give you the impression that they're still not exclusive?

AEW is not in the business of making friendly alliances out of North American wrestling promotions. Their goal is to make as much money as possible. Its not their fault if other US promotions can't keep up and get edged out. Its not they're job to prop up other promotions and they're not going to share wealth & resources unless they have to.

>A brutal intergender match led to Callihan hitting two piledrivers on Blanchard to pick up the victory. After the match, Callihan grabbed both his and Blanchard's bat and looked to attack her once again, instead, handing Blanchard her gold bat and then heading to the back.

>Some may have found the outcome surprising, but according to the latest Wrestling Observer Radio the reason was the match was designed to showcase Blanchard as Impact obviously sees her as a big star within the promotion. The plan from the start was to have Callihan win the match.

>Impact apparently wants to avoid the reaction Roman Reigns has received in the past, when he's pushed to the point where fans have rejected him. Impact reportedly wants Blanchard to avoid that, so having her lose the match should quell that response, but she's still being put over by having a very strong showing against Callihan.

>Dave Meltzer also noted this type of "backwards booking" is something WWE has done in the past, where the person they are pushing, loses more often. He gave the example of Daniel Bryan as someone who was able to get over with that type of strategy. While this booking often doesn't work, Blanchard could also be the exception as fans tend to get behind "the chase" if it's for the right wrestler.

There's no shame in Tessa losing to Sami in his type of gimmick match.

But, "backwards booking" helps someone who isn't already over. Tessa is, and impact should really consider striking while the iron is hot with her.

Because he’s offering his opinion on the booking and the outcome of the match, not the content of the match itself. You don’t need to see each individual match to offer comment on the overall booking of a wrestler.

If he said the match was shit or was poorly worked then his opinion would be worthless but he didn’t opine in the match itself. I think Dave is off the mark in more than a few circumstances but he isn’t guilty of anything in this instance.

I thought it was pretty well done.

The finisher spam was stupid but whatever that's part and parcel of USA wrestling these days I guess.
I don't follow impact much, but I'd seen some of Callihan vs Penta and seen Blanchard on AAA. Seemed effective but I saw some people questioning the character of Callihan doing a respect spot like that after the match, dunno about that myself .
Worked for me as a match and as a main event, didn't push me away from Impact, about all they could ask for I gues

Excellent event. If Impact had a bigger budget and competent management it would be huge in North America.

Only dud was the Killer Kross match, but eveything else kept me entertained.

Impact has so many great characters, well done matches and just a fun atmosphere. I wish Don Calis made arrangements with Khan instead, but such is life...

That was a really good PPV and I thought the quality was just as good as last year's Slammiversary. Those last three matches were great and while I thought Elgin-Cage was the best match of the night, having Callihan-Blanchard main event was the right call to make not only just because it's the first time in Impact history that a woman has ever main evented a PPV but also because it's a way to build her up as a world title contender because she can most certainly hold her own in the ring against her male counterparts. I'm fine with having her lose while keeping her strong in the process because she still got over huge with the crowd and she'll definitely get a win at Bound for Glory if the rumors are true that she's gonna face Brian Cage for the world title. I'm all for Impact doing intergender matches since WWE, AEW, ROH and MLW aren't really doing them seriously.

Also I checked and the last time that Impact had a PPV main event that wasn't a tag team match, a multi-man match or even a title match was No Surrender 2012 when Jeff Hardy faced Bully Ray in the BFG Series Finals.

Don Callis and Scott D'Amore will find talents to replace them. The question is will fans care? I think Impact is going to shift into more of the midwest/Ontario scene, especially as Sami Callihan, Elgin & Ethan Page all become more established; they all have their own cliques.

I don't think people should be surprised to see the Impact-AAA deal finally end and for AEW to become the exclusive. Dorian Roldan has no loyalty and will go to the highest bidder. I would not be surprised if Konnan angles for a job with AEW.

Cage, Taya, Kross are as good as gone as soon as possible. AEW is going to take all the Lucha Underground crossovers.

The real dilemma is if AEW and/or WWE make a play for Callis and/or D'Amore. I'd say there is a very real possibility that they throw a lot of money at Scott to become a PC coach and they offer some kind of "executive creative" role to Don (to work under Heyman?)

Puma King, Taurus, Laredo Kid, Rey Horus, Flamita (and Bandido) are working a 6 man tag at the next PWG show. I'm sure they will all be booked for All Out/Wednesday Night Dynamite soon after.

>There's been talk that LAX finished up at Slammiversary. We haven't confirmed that. Their deals were slated to expire in August. Impact had seen signing them as a huge priority with one source noting that both Santana and Ortiz were going to be offered "top money" but obviously there is a lot of potential money for a team of that caliber elsewhere, especially in AEW where tag teams are going to be a huge priority.

>Impact Champion Brian Cage worked the Slammiversary PPV in a lot of pain with continued back issues.

>Expect a big push for Tessa Blanchard to continue in the weeks to come. Her Slammiversary main event bout with Sami Callihan was not the end of the current planned story for Blanchard, who will likely factor into one of the top bouts at Bound for Glory this October. Her loss was not meant to be the end of her story. In fact, the big moment was meant to be Callihan, who as a character has zero redeeming qualities, being so impressed by the fight Blanchard brought that even he showed her respect after their fight.

>This week's Impact Wrestling will be a look at the Slammiversary PPV with content that was filmed over the course of the weekend. The plan is to pattern it similar to the old "Reaction" specials and if this works, perhaps do a similar episode after major PPVs.

>While the roster flew home today, the creative team remained in Dallas today to work on future plans.

>Impact will be running this Sunday 7/14 at the Don Kolov Arena at Battle Arts Academy with Michael Elgin, Sami Callihan, Ace Austin, Taya Valkyrie, Madison Rayne, Sami Callihan, Tessa Blanchard, Willie Mack and more scheduled. The theme of the show seems to be enemies teaming with each other. The show is billed as a TV taping.

>The Jordynne Grave vs. Madison Rayne vs. Kiera Hogan bout taped before the PPV will be featured on a future episode of Impact.

>In regard to a TV deal, there was hope they'd have something locked in to announced today, but obviously that didn't happen. While the company can remain on Pursuit indefinitely, obviously that's not the best thing for the promotion long-term.

... a rematch? a stipulation match? maybe they have Cage drop the belt to Sami over the summer and Tessa faces him at BFG? Or they do a tourney to crown the no. 1 contender for BFG and Tessa & Sami are in the finals?

then LAX and Lucha Bros stopped feuding after Homecoming by that logic.

Josh teased on commentary that Tessa & Sami might be forced to team together at whatever this Fallout tag team show is.

Sami "showed respect" to Tessa because he was a shit talking heel who put down and women and won clean. they had to book it that way to not bury Tessa/their Knockouts division. When you want to build up an underdog babyface, you have to find ways for them to lose without looking like shit. You have to create the idea that they're getting closer and closer to winning the big one.

Callis/Impact just don't book one month feuds. they usually milk a few matches out of a rivalry.

Yeah Tessa is either going after the Knockouts championship or going after Brian Cage for the Impact championship. She has also wrestled Brian Cage before. It's sad about LAX and Johnny Impact as they were main players on Impact for me but at the same time this is how the business goes.

I hope LAX and Johnny are used properly wherever they go. They are stars and deserve more then being jobbers on Main Event(see EC3). I'm glad that everything has been a lot more smooth in Impact with transitioning talent in and out though. The North and The Rascalz are amazing as well and solid replacements for Lucha Bros and LAX. I actually like The North more than LAX but I'm probably crazy.

Hope that television deal pulls through. Really crossing my fingers on that one.

Considering she already had a dominant reign as KO champ and then decisively beat the most legendary KO ever in Gail Kim, winning the title for a second time feels like a step back. Like Daniel Bryan facing Sheamus at WM 30.

I genuinely think they're going to pull the trigger on Tessa challenging for the world title at BFG and this summer is about her earning her spot to hang with the men. Its crazy but she can pull it off.

She already had a fairly hyped IG main event against Brian Cage in Wrestlecircus.
She's the Impact star that is being heavily featured for the AAA show in MSG.
And IF this AXS deal comes together, she will be the flagship star of TWO AXS wrestling shows (Impact and WOW)

TBH, I'm kinda done with Cage's title reign. Not because of the back injuries, but because of how blatantly pandering he's been about trying to work for AEW. If he doesn't want to be in Impact then he can get the fuck out.

completely different context, Lucha Bros and LAX were walking on thin ice the whole time when it comes to their friendly relationship and the catch of the feud was that at one point one of the two teams would have snapped on the other

>Josh teased on commentary that Tessa & Sami might be forced to team together at whatever this Fallout tag team show is.
josh was terrible that night, so you might need to take the "forced" part with a grain of salt, plus it would make no sense to state immediately that they're already so friendly with each other, even considered the sign of respect

>Sami "showed respect" to Tessa because he was a shit talking heel who put down and women and won clean. they had to book it that way to not bury Tessa/their Knockouts division.
gotta disagree, a man beating a woman is not a controversial concept at all for wrestling, it's not done often due to moonsaulting but no one has ever complained in an intergender match that the man won because its given for granted that they're stronger on average

>When you want to build up an underdog babyface, you have to find ways for them to lose without looking like shit. You have to create the idea that they're getting closer and closer to winning the big one.
problem is, there is no reason to continue this feud now, this was not a build for the future, sami has proven to be the better wrestler because of his sex, but still respects tessa for trying her best, now she can't be mad at him for making his sexist assumptions and he can't be mad at her because she showed courage, this is pretty much the end of the conflict

and his "the women's hardcore match was nothing special, we've seen it all before", before realising that he rated Moxley/Janela 4.5 stars and making some bullshit excuse as to why.

Apart from that I mostly agreed with him, didn't realise that LAX and Rascalz both lost on the saturday show to Booker T's tag team. What was that all about?

Some fans really bought into the “Meltzer hates Impact” narrative that the previous management tried to push. It’s retarded, especially when you consider that he has put over Impact multiple times in recent years. Like these people can’t consider that maybe, just maybe, Impact ain’t that good.

Like, yes, they’re putting on good shows now. Better late than never, but Impact isn’t the only promotion doing that. It’s not a crime to say other promotions put on better shows.

no it's more like it doesn't mesh with what he likes. He clearly enjoys the NJPW style. Impact doesn't have that style. That's fine, different fans like different things about wrestling. Meltzer is entitled to his opinion. Doesn't mean Impact is bad for having more character based psychology, just different.

It's also not a crime to say that you enjoy Impact more than NJPW. The sticking point is when fans use Meltzer's ratings as some objective proof (and don't pretend this doesn't happen) of quality when they are just guidelines to his mind.

THIS.

Meltz has praised all the Callis PPVs but remember back in the fall, when Alvarez started to get into a BFG post show discussion and Meltz cut him off and went off about how it wasn't as important as stuff that was going on with Kenny Omega in NJPW?

Then on the next edition of the Observer, Meltz apologized for acting like that but it didn't matter, the Observer fandom had already dogpiled on "LOLTNA" for being so irrelevant cuz Dave said so.

Meltz is good; he might not be the best anymore (John Pollock is giving him a run for his money and Sean Ross Sapp is getting there) But whats most annoying is when he is wrong, he buries his retractions.

using Meltz's opinion as objective proof? Maybe not on *this* board but I'd say it happens pretty frequently. Hell there are always arguments in the dirtsheet thread once he posts his star ratings. And there's a lot of it on readit and twitter. And then you have that weird circle of twitter users like rovert and fray that are OBSESSED with refuting Meltz's claims (and every now and then stumble into something correct) And then there's shitheads like Ryan Satin who have the absolute most pleb taste based on "IWC"/Meltz stereotypes. On top of all that, you got the Young Bucks naming moves after him and if you think its eye-rolling, you're getting "worked" buy their "meta heel heat". Kenny Omega talked about his star ratings in NJPW promos building to big title matches.

"Being the Elite" was named 2nd best wrestling TV show of the year by Observer voters. Fucking seriously? The Observer subscriber base is a giant circlejerk and then Dave uses his audience-voted awards as confirmation of his opinions... even though they're following him as a tastemaker.

There are literally threads on circlejerk where people are like "X wrestler got a 4.3 average star rating". often they don't even say "Meltzer", they just assume that any discussion of star rating must be his.


Then you have Cagematch, which despite being a place where fans can rate matches, actually uses Meltzer's ratings as a yardstick to whether a match is included in their guide and you can vote on it individually.

There's always one troll on this website who will claim that no, noone cares about Meltzer's opinion. It's a really strange flex because you can tell they are a big meltzer fan themselves lol.

You don't seem to understand, Cagematch is a site for anyone to add their ratings, but they put Meltzer's rating on the top of the page and if he rates a match highly it automatically goes in the guide.

Also, sure there are anti meltzer people on squaredcircle, but there are far more who hang on his every word. Try posting someone elses star ratings next to his and see what happens.

The Meltzer defense force is a real thing and people will leap in front of trucks to defend his name but on the other hand there are people who just hate everything he does or says and it comes off as a pig headed.

I generally know that when I watch a match I love there is no way that anyone can take that from me. Meltzer giving things I like bad reviews just ticks me off a bit but it doesn't ruin my day or my opinion on the match. It's okay to have different opinions it's just nice sometimes when Papa Meltzer agrees because it helps get the word out on your favorite wrestling promotion or wrestler or whatever to the sea of Meltzer fanatics who hang onto his every word.

It’s like a fucking war of internet spergs there, and the mods there have exacerbated shit before. Makes me appreciate the mods here, tbh.

Probably because your argument is retarded

Since my Taina feed was the sjits. 30 seconds of acition and 3 minutes of bufferig, I was finally able to watch a repeat. I liked this show a lot-and gained a little appreciation for some of the people I didn't before. Wasn't as good as last year's Slammiversary. but that was hard to beat.
A few things I noticed.
Safety. Seeing Moose take a rana on the floor, and making sure to aim for the mat.
Taya setting the spots well, and landing on the table first before Rosemary hit.

The North won, I'm happy. Santana's knee is a work though. He started complaining when he rolled off the ramp. If your knee is shot, you don't sit like he was doing before being helped out. Rascalz were bros there. LAX needs a rest. Give Impact the chance to make a decent offer, and keep the same appearance contract they got now-with a nice bonus.

Johnny Impact is on the Windsor promo. Take that as you will. I didn't like him or Taya, but that mood has softened. This show helped/
Didn't mind the Tessa vs Sami match, nor the ending.

Cage can walk for all I care. I hope this makes BigMike more vicious.

My apologies for the resurrection of this thread, but finally getting the chance to watch this uninterrupted impoves my view of this show literally and figuratively.

After having some time to think back I agree on all of this. LAX leaving isn't the end of the world. Nor Johnny Impact but I was just starting to like his shitty character with John E Bravo. Cage seems to have a fucked up back tbh. I don't see him wrestling in five years. Killer Kross is most likely going to leave at some point as well

It's business. He's trying to move up the ladder. Impact isn't funded by panda energy these days, so he's not going to be making that much money out of impact even as their world champion.

i get that its business. it doesn't mean i'm entertained by it. its just so... corny.
I miss the trash talk. Like when Rhino set fire to his ECW title outside the Impact Zone and proclaimed his loyalty to TNA. Or when ECW, no matter how small or poor their company was, was willing to challenge anyone to come to their show and fight them.

Brian Cage should not be saying he would "love the opportunity to have a great match with Kenny Omega" He should be saying "there's only one real legit world champion and you're looking at him. If any of these AEW guys want to stand up to the Machine, they know where to find me. I love a good fight and if they've got the guts, they should Cross The Line and step into an Impact ring."

Moose gets it.

it's unprofessional, it's cool that he wants to leave for a better place and (hopefully) make more money, but doing those tweets makes him look childish.

I also think its worth mentioning that Ed Nordholm spent the night in the hospital with him when he blew out his back after Rebellion. It just seemed really dickish to be prepared to job yourself out in an AEW pre show battle without even telling the guys who booked you to be their world champ

Say what you want about wrestling promoters, but it doesn't seem like Anthem is carnie. Maybe they're low budget and in over their heads but they're not pulling shady shit.

This. I like Brian Cage but he isn't the brightest bulb. His wife is way worse though. Melissa Santos needs to go. She always looks like she doesn't give a shit about what she does and is terrible at her job. There is nothing wrong with wanting to make more money and go further in your career but you look bad when you fantasy book on twitter to be in AEW. Killer Kross does the same thing and he will even mention WWE.

Okay, after the Sami vs Tessa match-people chant "Tessa Tessa Tessa".
If you really believe in "equality" dontcha think there could have been a few "Sami Sami Sami" chants?
