Before all the chaos at No Surrender, Masha Slamovich continued her reign of terror and defeated Kiah Dream. Slamovich began the match with her arms behind her back and that advantage helped Dream in no way. With another victory, Slamovich might be on her way to a championship opportunity soon. Later that night, The Quintessential Diva, Gisele Shaw defeated Lady Frost as she made her debut in the IMPACT Zone. Their interaction in the ring gave us one of the best matches of the night and left us wanting more.
Countdown to No Surrender featured a match between tag team specialist, Tenille Dashwood, and Havok. It was Havok that snatched the victory as The Influence member, Kaleb with a K received a surprising call from The IInspiration. With this win for her team, Havok and Rosemary will be the first to have their eyes on those IMPACT Knockoust World Tag Team Championships. Give us a triple threat match between Decay, The Influence, and The IInspiration, and settle this once and for all!
The feud between Jordynne Grace and Matt Cardona has reached a point beyond a championship. Each competitor pulled out all the stops last night and it seems that the goal is to take one another out in the process. As Cardona retained, Grace was disqualified after giving the champion a sudden low blow. It was quite evident their feud includes no light at the tunnel. All bets are off and nothing is standing in their way of destruction.
ROH Women’s World Champion and AAA Reina de Reinas Champion, Deonna Purrazzo, issued yet another open challenge to either title. The challenge was answered by the Lucha Baddie, Miranda Alize. The Virtuosa proved once again she is ready for any challenger at any time in any ring. Shortly after, it was revealed that, after her successful victory at AAA Rey de Reyes, Taya Valkyrie is the new number one contender for Purrazzo’s AAA Reina de Reina Championship.
After pinning the champion on IMPACT, the first-ever Knockouts Ulitmate X winner Tasha Steelz had just what she needed going into her match at No Surrender, However, that advantage over the champion was not enough to become Knockouts Champion. Mickie James retained her IMPACT Knockouts World Championship. I personally have my own thoughts on the outcome of this match, we’ll leave that for an article.
