Twitter effect

effect he has Hard to kill The promotional event will start on Friday, January 13th. Josh Alexander fights Bully Ray at Full Metal Mayhem for the Impact World Championship, and Mickie James battles Jordynne Grace for his career knockout championship vs. the title. Thursday night’s episode of Impact wrestling It was like going home to PPV card buzz.

Since Josh Alexander and Polly Ray were sent home until Hard to killImpact had a video call as the go-to house segment to sell their feud.

Alexander was disgusted that Bully had no boundaries and played by no rules. The bully made Alexander admit he was in over his head. Alexander didn’t seem to care, but Bully took pride in making his plan work. Like a supervillain, Bully explained his motivations in great detail.

Bully did all of his dastardly deeds for a reason. He knows he can’t stay with Alexander for a long wrestling match. That’s why he slammed hard using chairs, ladders and tables. This was all in an effort to impress Alexander in a Full Metal Mayhem match. This is Bully’s specialty, and he is confident of winning the Impact World Title.

In addition, Impact aired the hype package for the match. Alexander is weak, but also angry. He’ll make sure Bully leaves as a sad, pathetic, lonely, broken man, and no one will care.

After last week’s stellar career parade for Mickie James, all that’s left is one last hype package. Jordynne Grace isn’t looking to finish James’s Last Rodeo, but that’s what she has to do. Either James retires, or he retains the knockout belt. Grace has no desire to lose the title. On James’s side, she’s had a bus career full of amazing moments, and she’ll have another Hard to kill.

In another work of Impact wrestling:

  • Heath defeated Brian Myers. Renault and Matt Cardona were both ejected from ringside. Myers landed a flying elbow drop. Heath kicked the cover. Myers turned his back on complaining to the referee about the count, so Heath trapped Myers in a cruciform pin. Myers kicked out and again complained to the referee. Heath pounced on a wake-up call for the win. Great motion alert! Heath had an elegant power of turnbuckles.
  • Bullet Club members Chris Bey and Ace Austin are ready for the Four-Way Elimination Match at Hard to kill. It wouldn’t be a sweat after making it to the finals of the NJPW Super Junior Tag League.
  • Savannah Evans defeated Rosemary. Taya Valkyrie was hit backstage so it was 4-on-2 numbers games with Tasha Steelz, Gisele Shaw and Jai Vidal ringside from Jessicka. Rosemary was furious and took the fight to Evans. Cannibal weathered the storm to hit hard. In the end, the numbers game was a distraction. One by one, Stiles, Shaw, and Vidal kept jumping on the apron from different sides to wreak havoc. This allowed Evans to get Nelson’s victory over Rosemary. Then, the Winners scored their points by stomping on Jessica and Rosemary.
  • The Witch Wilde had a witch article asking for strength from the powers that be. She called on fire, earth, air and water. The dark feminine will rise in the #1 knockout match at Hard to kill.
  • Sami Callihan shaved his head for the first step to joining The Design. Diner explained that shaving Callihan’s hair is part of the process of losing his identity. Callihan has to tear himself apart to get stronger. Callihan stirred up tension the whole time if he continued. He did, and Deaner declared the Death Machine dead. Deaner welcomed Callihan’s birth. (Full details here.)
  • Gail Kim has been too busy to serve as a temporary replacement for Scott D’Amore. EVP was recovering after Bully Ray blasted him through a table. Kim has teased that a new director of power will be unveiled in Hard to kill. (Full details here.)
  • “Speedball” Mike Bailey defeated Anthony Green. Competitive match. Bailey turned up the heat with a blitz attack for the win. The head kick, thrust kick, hurricane kick, and ultima weapon sealed the deal.
  • Moose, Eddie Edwards and Steve McClain defeated Joe Hendry, Jonathan Grisham and Rich Swann. This was a preview PPV of three singles bouts coming together as a three-way competition. The action exploded in motion everywhere along the expanse. Moss picked his spot to lead Hendry to victory.
  • After the main event, Edwards was alone in the ring. Lights flickered with lightning sounds to be heard. The unspoken implication was that PCO had risen from its desert burial.

This was kind of the go-to home paint-by-numbers show from Impact. The matches were low key but high on excitement. A Josh Alexander vs. Bully Ray video call isn’t exactly the most exciting PPV selling thing, but the hard work of storytelling is already complete. If you weren’t sold now, there isn’t much Impact he could have done to change your mind. Same for Mickie James vs. Jordyn Grace.

One of the positive things about Bully’s explanation of its main plot is that it shows Impact puts a lot of attention to detail in its storytelling. I thought Bully wanted a strong fit, but I didn’t think it would be very subtle to use chairs, ladders, and tables as subliminal messages to encourage Alexander to fall into his trap. You have to appreciate the effort in these planning layers. Besides, it makes me wonder if Bully has laid the groundwork to plan something else to secure victory at Hard to kill. Whether or not there was an aberration in Full Metal Mayhem, the seed is there to fuel fans’ curiosity.

Impact dropped enough fresh teasing for the future to make the episode worthwhile. Doing Sami Callihan’s haircut wasn’t all that interesting, however, and I’m intrigued to see what Denner has in store as Callihan goes through the process of joining The Design. There is plenty of room for them to go as crazy as they want. Bringing in a temporary authority number could shake things up in the area of ​​influence. PCO’s return to get revenge on Eddie Edwards would be awesome.
