Spoilers effect: famous workers debut, and return of WCW’s infamous gimmick


Jason D on Twitter

Impact Wrestling was in Kissimmee, FL this weekend taping the televsion leading up to their broadcast show – Friday, February 24th no giving up from Las Vegas.

Spoilers from the first night of recording here.

There was a lot going on building up to the main events for No Surrender, but for our money, the main event happening on Saturday included some names from the past. Barry Horowitz, the iconic enhancement talent, made his debut on Impact on February 21, winning thanks to a WCW comeback. Kiss Satan.

You can probably tell how it happened from those tweets, but confirm your suspicions — and find out more about everything that happened when you signed up — in these spoilers from Observer Wrestling And PWInsider:

Deonna Purrazzo def. Steve D Lander (Knight Perotta from fka NXT) via submission. Giselle Shaw and her assistant Jay Vidal came out to confront Purrazzo, but Shaw’s attempt to throw dog food in Diona’s face backfired and she hit Vidal instead.

Kevin Knight def. Jack Price

Kushida def. Chris Bey

Steve McClain def. Rhino qualifies for the quadruple no. Single competitor match in no giving up

Barry Horowitz def. Johnny Swinger Thanks for Distraction by Satan

Heath def. Eddie Edwards qualifies for quadruple no. Single competitor match in no giving up (Making it Brian Myers vs. PCO vs. Maclin vs. Heath). It appeared that there was a PCO distraction here that cost Edwards the match, and PCO attacked Eddie afterwards to continue their feud.

Masha Salamovich def. Alisha Edwards. Mickie James was on commentary and saved Alicia from a post-match knockout, but Salamović got the best knockout champion.

Rich Swan def. Kenny King. Josh Alexander ran to help King’s offense after the match, but the world champion ended up catching a kick from Swann that was intended for Kenny.

• Heroes tag effect Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin) def. Mike Bailey and Jonathan Grisham in a non-title match. A misunderstanding between Bailey and Gresham led to MCMG hitting their finisher and pinning Gresham.

Tommy Dreamer def. Jason Hotch in under 2 minutes as part of the Beat The Clock challenge with Bully Ray

Alicin Kay def. Taya Valkyrie

Franky Kazarian and Yuya Uemura def. Dean of Design and Callihan by submission (Kaz on Callihan). Callihan had made Uemura reach piled river at one point, but Deaner prevented him from hitting the move.

Bully Ray def. Bhupinder Gujjar in less time than Dreamer to win the Beat The Clock challenge. The bully used a chain-loaded punch to overwhelm Guijar, dismantling celebrity chef husband Robert Irvin at ringside.

Tree Miguel def. Crazzy Steve in a Monster’s Ball match to retain the X-Division Championship

Josh Alexander and Mickie James def. Dirty Dango & Gisele Shaw (Insider thinks this may have been a “digital exclusive”)

Other than that last one (maybe), this content should air on February 16th and 23rd. Sounds like a good way to spend a Thursday night?
