– D’Lo Brown and Matt Striker run through the matches that are still to come tonight and at Hardcore Justice this Saturday. So far, a Knockouts Scramble to determine a No. 1 Contender for the Knockouts Championship at Rebellion and a Title versus Career matchup are the only ones scheduled. Stay tuned for more match announcements tonight!

Backstage: Gia Miller gets a quick word from Matt Cardona, who just found out Brian Myers rejected his match proposal last week. Cardona says he’s ok with it. Cardona didn’t come to Impact just to fight Myers. In fact, he announces he has a match with Jake Something tonight.

–  This week we see another Knockouts teaser that reads, “Let’s Get Wilde.” It looks like former Knockouts and inaugural Knockouts Tag Team Champion Taylor Wilde will return to Impact soon!

Backstage: After taking a nasty hit from Jazz on Before The Impact, the doctor is ready to see Susan and help her with her injuries. When he says he’ll see her now, several flashing colors appear. Could this be hinting towards the return of The Undead Bride, Su Yung?

Jake Something vs. Matt Cardona

Matt Cardona dominates Jake Something in the beginning of the match. Their brawl then spills towards the outside. Something clocks Cardona with a heavy clothesline. Both men return to the ring, where Jake Something clubs Cardona with several big forearms. Something looks for a brainbuster. Cardona, creatively, turns it into a neckbreaker!

Will this be enough to end his match with Jake Something? No! Jake kicks out at two! Cardona sends Something out of the ring with a big hurricanrana! Brian Myers runs out and plants a vicious DDT on Cardona and then throws Something towards the stairs.

Winner: No Contest

Post-Match: Brian Myers says he had some time to think, and he changed his mind. He accepts Cardona’s challenge at Rebellion.

Backstage: XXXL finds Trey Miguel and teases him before their tag team match against Sami Callihan – assuming Miguel comes out and joins Callihan’s team tonight.

– Violent By Design promises to carry forward after Eric Young lost to James Storm last week. Young says that tonight, Deaner will not fail in his match against Chris Sabin. If Deaner fails, Young reminds him there will be consequences.

XXXL vs. Sami Callihan & Trey Miguel

Trey Miguel’s music teases for a few minutes. Then, the Fresh Prince of Mid-Air comes out! The bell rings, and Trey takes Acey Romero off his feet with a beautiful missile dropkick. Larry D and Trey then become the legal men. Larry D backs up towards his corner and makes a tag on Romero. With XXXL on the outside, Trey is about to fly to the outside, but Sami Callihan tags himself in. Callihan connects a bicycle kick just before the commercial break.

During the break, Callihan almost takes Larry D’s head off with a forceful clothesline. Now, Romero and Trey are the two squaring off. Romero keeps the high flyer down as he makes a tag to Larry D. XXXL tries to snap Trey in two. Trey fights back with another dropkick before Callihan tags himself again. Trey and Callihan start to bicker amongst themselves. Callihan picks Trey up and throws him towards Larry D. Trey then positions himself to throw Larry D over with a hurricanrana! Next, Callihan and Trey fly out of the ring on opposite sides with stereo dives. Trey locks Larry D up with his hourglass submission. Seconds later, Larry D taps out. Trey gains the victory!

Sabin traps Deaner again with another trap pin – same results. Deaner throws Sabin in the corner and lays down a flurry of shots. Sabin lands face-first into the top turnbuckle after Deaner quickly side steps. Deaner then slides over and jams Sabin’s neck into the turnbuckle! Deaner focuses on Sabin’s injured neck by bending his head with a tight grip. Sabin turns it around with an inverted atomic drop, followed by a suplex. Sabin connects a fisherman’s driver for just a two count!

Sabin climbs to the top and flies off with a crossbody. He goes for another pin, and Deaner kicks out. Deaner hangs Sabin up on the top rope and lands a big crossbody before dropping him into the mat. Cover. Sabin kicks out. Deaner pokes Sabin’s eyes and rolls him up with his feet on the ropes. The referee catches it and rejects the count. Sabin hits Cradle Shock. 1-2-3, Sabin takes home the win!

Post-Match: Eric Young and Joe Doering ambush Chris Harris at Swinger’s Palace. Young says this is all James Storm’s fault.

Backstage: Ace Austin and Madman Fulton get into a verbal argument with their opponents from last week, TJP and Josh Alexander. Just before Austin has to defend his X-Division Championship against Alexander and TJP at RebellionHardcore Justice booker Tommy Dreamer thinks it would be a great idea to have all three men pick their own partners for a three-way tag match this Saturday so they can blow off some steam before their big title fight in two weeks.

Backstage: Dreamer sees Eric Young walking by after brutally attacking Chris Harris. Dreamer says he’s going to get some guys together to take down Violent By Design. Young is looking forward to this hardcore challenge.

Before her big matchup this Saturday, Jazz takes a look back on her career. The veteran will be putting her career on the line for a shot at Deonna Purrazzo’s Knockouts Championship.

Backstage: Gia Miller wants to know what Deonna Purrazzo’s thoughts are after seeing Jazz’s video package. Purrazzo is honored to face Jazz this Saturday; however, she believes she’s the woman to put an end to Jazz’s legendary career.

Backstage: Tommy Dreamer waits for Brian Myers to make his way to the back. When he does, Dreamer informs Myers he’ll be in a Hardcore Blindfold match against Jake Something this Saturday!
