Impact Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie vs. Jordynne Grace

Good back and forth athletic match.  Grace showed some real fire early on.  Taya cut her off and scored several two counts.  They battled to the floor, where Taya drilled him against the guard rail.  She went to whip Grace into the rail but it was reversed.   Grace charged but missed.  Taya worked her over.  They went back to the ring apron, where Taya nailed her with a knee strike.  Grace slid under her legs, picked her up on her shoulders and dropped her across the guard rail.  Ouch!

Taya barely made it back into the ring to beat the count.  They battled back and forth with forearms.  Grace went for a suplex but was blocked.  Taya nailed a series of kicks.  She missed a charge in the corner.  She went for another but was kicked down hard out of the corner.  Grace scored several near falls.

Grace hit a dive to the floor that popped the place.  She rebounded off the ropes but was speared for a two count.   They battled to the top where Taya beat her across the back.  Grace fired back with several headbutts, sending Taya down to the mat.  Grace nailed a Vader splash off the ropes and a cradle Michinoku Driver but at the two count, John E. Bravo pulled the referee out the ring.

He got on the apron with a chair.  Grace confronted him  He tossed a chair in her face.  Taya covered her for the pin.

Your winner and still Knockouts Champion, Taya Valkyrie!

A really good back and forth match with the crowd into the near falls.  The finish wasn’t amazing in my opinion but it got Grace over as she received a lot of respectful reaction after the match, so what do I know?

Teddy Hart cut a promo and said he was going to put on a five star match tonight.  He said he was training his new cat and told Willie Mack and Rich Swann to prepare for war tonight.

HOH TV Champion Willie Mack vs. X-Division Champion Willie Mack vs. Teddy Hart

Lots of good, athletic, crazy action right out of the gate.  Mack and Swann teamed to hit some big aerial offense on Hart, with Swann scoring a two count.  Mack and Swann faced off as Hart rolled to the floor and they slugged it out in the middle of the ring.  Mack hit a Pounce on Swann, who went to the floor.  Mack hit a flip dive over the top to the floor on Hart and Swann, which popped the house.

Mack elevated and drilled Hart with a big right hand.  Swann came off the apron for a rana but was caught and powerbombed on the outside of the ring.  Hart attacked Mack with some chops on the floor and nailed a suplex on the floor.  Hart nailed a suplex on Swann, then hit a big Asai Moonsault off the top rope to the floor on both of his opponents.  The Arena exploded and chanted his name.

Hart maneuvered them into the ropes and drilled them both with a DDT at the same time.  He moonsaulted onto Swann for a two count.   He nailed a big Candian Piledriver on Mack.  Swann cut him off and locked on a Sharpshooter, which the crowd booed at.  Hart fought his way out but before he could escape Mack DDT’d Swann.  The crowd clapped and rallied for all three competitors.

All three battled outside on the apron.  Mack nailed a cutter on Hart, who then stumbled into a cutter from Swann.    Mack and Swann battled back and forth in the ring with some STIFF kicks and chops.  Mack caught him with an exploder for a close two call.  This is a damn good match!

Hart returned to the fray and they all battled.  They fought into the corner, setting up a Tower of Doom spot but the big twist was Hart coming off the top and hitting a Candian Destroyer on Swann who was on Mack’s shoulders.  Mack and Hart battled and Mack came off the ropes with a frog splash for the pin.

Your winner and still HOH TV Champion, Willie Mack!

A HELL of a match!

Big reaction from the building for everyone.  Hart received a loud "Teddy" chant.

Philly Street Fight: Sami Callihan vs. Eddie Edwards

Callihan and Edwards each placed boards in the corners of the ring and faced off with a baseball bat and a Singapore Cane.  Callihan got the better of the early exchange and nailed a DVDR through one board.  Edwards recovered and speared him through the other.  Callihan went to the floor.  Eddie hit a pescado to the floor.

They brawled on the floor with Callihan using a chair and a cookie sheet on him.  They battled around the ringside area with weapons.   Callihan drilled him in the gut with a steel chair.  Lots of weapons and trash can shots as they battled on the floor.    Callihan tossed Eddie into the ring but he came back with a big dive to the floor.

Edwards took a ECW replica belt from a fan and nailed Callihan with it.  He got a big ECW chant for it.  He smashed Sami with the bottom of the trash can.  Callihan fought back and teased taking a weapon from the crowd but instead blew them off.  He nailed a series of chops on the floor.

Callihan ran a lap around ringside preparing to hit a big boot to the face but Edwards flipped a table over and smashed it into him, then nailed him again.  They battled back and forth with kicks on the apron.  Callihan nailed a piledriver on the apron.

Callihan pulled another board out from under the ring.   They battled all over the ringside area and back into the ring.  Edwards caned Callihan and placed him in a chair in the center of the ring.  He rebounded off the ropes but was caught with an exploder onto the chair.  This is a hell of brawl!

Callihan grabbed his baseball bat.  Edwards went onto the trash can and retrieved two drumsticks.  Sami charged but Eddie ducked his swing and drilled him with the sticks.  He pulled a sneaker out of the trash and nailed Sami with it.  He placed the can on Sami’s head and beat the hell out of it with the drumsticks.  He pulled out a license plate from New York.  The crowd chanted, “F*** New York.”  Hey now.

Edwards tossed down the license plate and smashed it with a chair.  Hey now!

Edwards then placed a board between two chairs.  He powerbombed Sami through it and scored a two count.  Sawyer Fulton hit the ring and attacked Fulton.  The Sandman hit the ring and clotheslined him over the top and to the floor, then caned him all the way to the back.  The place popped and chanted ECW.

Callihan gave Edwards the double middle finger as he brandished a cane.  Edwards swung but Callihan avoided him and rolled him up, hooking his pants and scored the pin.

Your winner, Sami Callihan!

A fun, great brawl worthy of the legacy of the building.

The only complaint is the spitting.  Enough of that.  It’s nasty.  They are spitting on each other.  Callihan snotted at a fan.  Stop.  It’s not worth it.
