As No Surrender draws near, a brand new IMPACT! Airs this Thursday at 8:70 AM on AXS TV and 8:30 PM ET on YouTube for IMPACT Insiders.
Just eight nights before Rich Swann will challenge Josh Alexander for the IMPACT World Title at No Surrender, he will step into the ring with Kenny King. The brash and brash King interrupted the interview with Alexander and stated that the Walking Gun was playing favorites with those who got a chance at the world title. Of course, we know this is not true, as Swann won the Golden Six Shooter and became the #1 contender that included all former IMPACT world champions. Now King has to put his money into what he says as he takes on Swann in a singles fight this Thursday!
At No Surrender, the top four IMPACT players will face off in the #1 Contenders match to determine who is next in line for the IMPACT World Championship. Last week, Brian Myers and PCO won their respective qualifying matches over Dirty Dango and Shera. The pitch will be decided this Thursday when Eddie Edwards takes on the Heat and Steve McLean takes on Reno in the final two qualifiers. Who will punch their ticket to Las Vegas?
At No Surrender, KENTA will lead Bullet Club to battle against Time Machine in a six-man blockbuster tag team match. But first, momentum will be built as Chris Bay goes head to head with KUSHIDA this Thursday. After a verbal altercation last week when Ace Austin and Chris Bay set their sights on capturing the IMPACT World Tag Team titles from the Motor City Machine Guns, tensions between the two feuding stables have risen as never before. Chris Bay or KUSHIDA to win decisively at IMPACT?
Last week, Masha Slamovich claimed her dominance over Mickey James when she dazzled the knockout world champion after setting up Bully Ray. As their dream match for the knockout world title is scheduled for No Surrender, things continue to escalate. This Thursday, Slamovich will enter the ring to take on Alisha, who is up against a dangerous #1 contender.
Kick off your pre-IMPACT night this Thursday at 7:15 pm ET exclusively on IMPACT Plus, YouTube and Facebook. Don’t miss Steph De Lander’s second match in IMPACT Wrestling as she takes on former multiple knockout world champion Deonna Purrazzo. Plus, Gia Miller, Josh Matthews, and George Iceman will prepare you for all things HIT.
US: Thursdays at 8:00 pm ET on AXS TV, Thursdays at 8:30 pm ET on YouTube (IMPACT Insiders), Thursdays at 10:00 pm ET on IMPACT Plus.
