Sienna (Champion) vs. Gail Kim

Sienna retained her titled after a match from the Hall of Famer Gail Kim. Kim was on fire and so close to claiming the title from Sienna. This was Kim’s comeback since she is attempting to retire from the ring soon and wants to leave as Knockouts Champion. Gail Kim is known as the first knockout champion for GFW. Kim continued the match with her tornado DDT but was dropped on the steel steps of the octagon ring by Sienna. Sienna would win by pin fall with her finisher the AK 47 and the help of Taryn Terrell.

OVE would defeat Cade & Wentz. OVE made their Debut to Impact on Destination X.

What can I say about OVE?

Super Kicks nothing but Super Kicks.  If you love super kicks, you would love this match. OVE controlled the whole match. Grabbing their win on their debut to Impact.


Shot vs Shot

Matt Sydal vs Bobby Lashley

Shot vs Shot allows the winner to get a title shot of their choice.

While the size difference of the two competitors is apparent. Do not let this size difference distract you from the fact that this would not be the first time that Sydal has ever stepped foot in a ring with a larger competitor.

Lashley would attempt to take over the match by using his power and size as an advantage. A list of kicks would help cut down the power of Lashley in the ring.  Lashley would become frustrated with the will of his competitor and would introduce a chair to the match. Sydal would eliminate the option for Lashley by landing a spinning heel kick to the chair.

Sydal goes for his finisher the shooting star press. Lashley had his knees up causing Sydal’s shooting star press to be ineffective. Lashley misses with his spear causing Sydal to roll him up, allowing Sydal to win.

American Top Team upset over the lost would then grab the referee.
