9 Ups & 3 Downs From Impact Wrestling (Aug 11)

Emergence card takes shape on a night when 'The Prince of Queens' returned.

Impact Wrestling

Slammiversary took place just under one month ago, yet the momentum from that pay-per-view is still going strong. With Emergence now announced for the following two weeks, featuring quite a hefty card announced thus far, this week’s Impact Wrestling had to do everything it could in order to deliver a phenomenal go-home show.

Heading into the episode, there was a lot on offer. Eddie Edwards’ third World Championship open challenge, a no DQ match featuring Havok & Nevaeh vs. Tasha Steelz & Kiera Hogan, and Eric Young vs. Willie Mack, plus more editions of both Locker Room Talk and Wrestle House. It had everything you could’ve possibly wanted from an episode of Impact, with the majority of things on the show delivering.

Both the World Championship match – featuring the return (promoted as a debut) of another recently released WWE star and Young vs. Mack were spectacular contests, whereas the use of The Good Brothers on this episode showed how easy it is to get a talent over in a short space of time. In addition, Rohit Raju was granted a championship match. No, really.

It should be mentioned that most of the Downs from the episode were only on that side of the column due to minor incidents preventing the episode from reaching the privileged zero Downs status. Nevertheless, they remain Downs for good reason.

Let’s get to it…
