IMPACT Wrestling is back on Thursday nights, baby!

Returning to their old home, IMPACT continued their monumental year with what was promised to be a stellar episode. After all, Kenny Omega was wrestling his second IMPACT match on the episode, this being his first time wrestling on the weekly show. The episode couldn't possibly be a let down.

Find out later in the article how well that six-man tag went between Omega and The Good Brothers, and Rich Swann, Willie Mack, and Eddie Edwards.

The night also saw a shedload of match announcements for both Hardcore Justice on 10 April and Rebellion on 25 April. In total, seven new matches were announced; five for tomorrow's IMPACT Plus special, and two for the pay-per-view in two weeks' time.

Here, Matt Cardona wrestled Jake Something in a decent match that saw Brian Myers get booked for both aforementioned events, Deaner failed to defeat Chris Sabin while Eric Young and Joe Doering laid waste to Chris Harris in Swinger's Palace, Jazz spoke fondly of her time in IMPACT Wrestling ahead of what could be her last match in the company tomorrow night, and Taylor Wilde's return to IMPACT Wrestling was all but confirmed for this month.

Let's get to it...
