7 Ups & 2 Downs From Impact Wrestling (Jul 21)


2. Who Really Wins?

For the past few weeks, a war has been brewing in Impact's knockouts division between Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz, and Havok and Nevaeh. Numerous interactions between the two sides was leading to this match, something that easily could have made for a decent match considering the majority of the story here has been decent.

Sadly, that couldn't have been further from the truth.

While the in-ring action itself was alright in some places, there were still a handful of dodgy-looking spots, from Nevaeh stumbling to the ground off a bicycle kick as opposed to a traditional back bump, and a swinging neckbreaker that somehow took about five seconds to complete. There was a decent story being told throughout to be fair to them, with Hogan and Steelz keeping Nevaeh trapped in their corner while Havok was jumping at the chance to get past the referee.

The conclusion of the bout was the worst part of the match, however. Havok set 'The Boricua Badass' up for a tombstone piledriver, only to take a slight blow to the back from Kiera wielding a steel chair. It did nothing to faze Havok, who tombstoned Steelz anyway, as she and Nevaeh stood tall. This didn't help anyone involved whatsoever. Kiera and Tasha now look hopeless with this failed attack, while Havok and Nevaeh are now represented as these immovable monsters, which isn't the case.
