Welcome to PWInsider's live, ongoing coverage of Impact Wrestling's second night of TV Tapings at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY!

Pre-Show Notes:

Laredo Kid is backstage and will be returning to the company tonight.

JT Dunn is here and slated to wrestle for an Xplosion match.

House of Glory star Mantequila is also slated to work an Xplosion match.

TJP is here and will be working again.

Scarlett Bordeaux is here.

They are filming all the wrap-around segments with Don Callis and Josh Mathews before the show so they don't have to stop the in-ring content to film them.  In a smart move, they are rotating the fans around so the segments look different based on what week they will air.

There are about 500 fans in attendance.

Xplosion: Jordynne Grace vs. Masha Slamovitch

They shook hands before the bell.  They had some solid back and forth action early on.  Slamovitch had the chance to show a little more than she did last night.  Grace ended up outside on the apron and was dropkicked to the floor. Masha stomped the hell out of her and choked her in the corner.  Masha missed a splash in the corner. Grace charged her in the corner but Masha leapt over her and nailed a Codebreaker for a two count.  Grace came back with a great spinebuster for a two count. Grace nailed a series of clubbering shots. Masha caught her with a back suplex.  She went for a piledriver, but Grace backdropped her. Grace drilled her off the ropes. She nailed a Vader Bomb off the ropes and hit a Michinoku Driver for the pin.

Your winner, Jordynne Grace!

Xplosion: Charles Mason vs. Sawyer Fulton (with Sami Callihan)

The crowd was giving OVE all sorts of heat.  Fulton destroyed Mason and nailed a delayed vertical suplex.    Mason fired back and nailed a series of rights and dropkicked Fulton through the ropes and out to the apron.   He went for a tope but was caught and slammed onto the ring apron. Fulton scored the pin with a Deep Six.

Your winner, Sawyer Fulton!

The Rascalz vs. Laredo Kid & Impact Tag Team Champions LAX (with Konnan)

Laredo hit a bodypress off the top onto all three Rascalz to kick off the show.  They did all sorts of great spots, popping the crowd big time. It broke down into a brawl at one point.  The Rascals made a comeback with Wentz hit a big dive over the top. The crowd chanted, “This is awesome.” They all did an insane sequence of big moves, with everyone laid out at the end to a big pop.  Everyone battled in the ring. LAX stacked them up with Laredo Kid hitting a 450 off the top for a near fall, The Rascalz gained control and triple-teamed Ortiz, scoring the pin.

Your winners, The Rascalz!

This was really damn good with all sorts of cool sequences and nice highspots and near falls. Really fun.

The North vs. The Deaners

Solid tag action.  The Deaners worked over Page but Cousin Jake was cut off.  The North tagged in and out working him over until Deaner made the hot tag.  Deaner hit a dive to the outside on Page. Alexander and Page each drilled Deaner with backbreakers.   They got a lot of heat on Deaner. Page nailed Jake to make sure he couldn’t tag in. Jake finally made the tag and began throwing suplexes.  He wiped out Alexander with a big splash. Alexander clipped his knee and locked on an anklelock. The Deaners double-teamed Alexander. Deaner hit a top rope headbutt but Page broke up the pinfall.   Alexander and Jake went back and forth with clotheslines and suplexes. The North scored the win with a double-team wheelbarrow slam.

Your winners, The North!

Rosemary & Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie vs. Havok & Su Yung

Yung and Taya started out and went back and forth.  Rosemary tagged in and hit a missile dropkick on Havok.  Rosemary went for a dive but Havok drilled her as she hit the ropes.  Havok went to use a chair but Rosemary kicked her down. They all brawled on the floor until the referee threw the match out.  The crowd chanted, “Let them fight.” They kept fighting. Taya stomped Havok in the corner with a chair. Rosemary poured thumbtacks on the mat.  They tried to suplex Yung onto the tacks but Havok saved her. Yung went to nail Taya but hit Havok by accident. Havok went to put her through the tacks but Jim Mitchell ran out to play peacemaker.  Taya and Rosemary returned and speared their opposition. Rosemary picked up the Knockouts title belt and Taya didn’t like that.

No contest.

This was more a backdrop to preview the Monster's Ball match at Slammiversary than anything else.

Sami Callihan vs. Fallah Bah (with Scarlet Bordeaux)

Bah used to might to overpower Callihan early on.  Callihan cut him down and used a chinlock to wear him down.  Callihan stomped away on Bah and drilled him with rights, but Bah started to come back to life.  Callihan cut him off and went back to the chinlock. Bah nailed a belly to belly suplex and hit several back splashes in the corner.  They battled onto the floor. Callihan stomped Bah’s foot as he returned to the ring and drilled him with the piledriver for the pin.

Your winner, Sami Callihan!

Good, solid bout that told a nice story.

Callihan cut a promo saying everyone was chanting "draw" at him, showing how over a true male performer can be.  He said he was tired of all the talk of the Knockouts Revolution.  He called Tessa Blanchard out.  Callihan said he had a bone to pick with her.  She comes out here in high heels and is trying to show how tough she is.  He said she isn't going to do anything to him because he's a male and he is Impact Wrestling.  He said she wants to be treated as an equal and sometimes, you get what you wish for. He kicked her down.  He said that's what happens when a Knockout gets in the ring with a male.  Tessa got up and speared him.  The crowd chanted her name.  She beat on Callihan until OVE hit the ring and broke it up.  They held her down as he said, "Wrong move, b**ch!" and hit her in the gut with a baseball bat, then hit a piledriver. 

Tommy Dreamer and D'Lo Brown got in the ring to check on her.  She made it to her feet and was helped to the back.
