- We take a look back at the matches and the King & Queen Tournament that went down this past Saturday at Homecoming.

Speaking of the King & Queen Tournament, the winners "Drama King" Matthew Rehwoldt and Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo make their way down to the ring.

Matthew Rehwoldt & Deonna Purrazzo's Coronation:

"The Virtuosa" begins the celebration by listing off all the accolades she has accomplished so far in Impact Wrestling. The fans chant at her, "No one cares." She shrugs it off. She goes back to talking about how she and Rehwoldt are now officially crowned for their hard-fought victories. Just then, Mickie James' music hits! James is on her way down to the ring.

James' has a contract in hand. Before she can talk, Purrazzo is furious she came out and interrupted her coronation. James says that was not her intention. She's here to make her NWA Empower official. James informs Purrazzo her title will be on the line and asks her to sign it. Before she can sign it, Purrazzo wants to know who her opponent is. James says her opponent happens to be here in the building. It's ex-WWE Superstar Melina! Melina gets a great pop from the crowd. After Purrazzo sees Melina, she officially signs the contract. Melina does too.


Purrazzo formally introduces herself to Melina. Purrazzo warns Melina while it's nice to meet her, she plans on retaining her title. Melina says, similar to how Purrazzo came into Impact and won the title in her first pay-per-view event, she's going to do the same thing and try to win it on her first try.

Backstage: Taylor Wilde says the reason why she was gone for so long from Impact was that someone called immigration on her and reported her as an illegal immigrant. Wilde has her suspicions. She thinks it was Tenille Dashwood and Kaleb. This leads to Wilde challenging Dashwood to a fight next week.

- The newest incarnation of Kimber Lee asks her mother Su Yung if she can help deliver souls to her. Yung says to Lee that her time has come.
