#4. America's Most Wanted in action on IMPACT Wrestling Against All Odds

Honor No More is shaking things up at #AgainstAllOdds! https://t.co/ArSRT8WwuS

Honor No More went toe-to-toe with The Good Brothers, Heath and America's Most Wanted in a 10-man tag team match. Earlier in the night, Eddie Edwards questioned PCO's loyalty towards Honor No More and Vincent stood up for him, leading Edwards to replace the latter with the former in the match.

During the match, PCO ran rampant over the opponents before Edwards tagged himself in. A brawl broke out during the closing moments of the match with everyone getting a big move in.

Kenny King and James Storm were the legal men. King had Storm set up and ordered PCO to launch an aerial assault on him, but the latter dived to the outside.

Storm quickly recovered and turned the tables on King. He had King in the Wheelbarrow position and signaled for the finish as Chris Harris headed to the top rope and hit Death Sentence for the win.

#2. Raven's Clockwork Orange House of Fun match on IMPACT Wrestling Against All Odds

Moose and Sami Callihan engaged in a brutal encounter as they fought in Raven's Clockwork Orange House of Fun. Raven was on commentary for the match. Moose jumped Callihan from behind during his entrance and hit a Spear before the match could start.

Callihan regained control of the match and hit the Cactus Driver into a pile of building blocks, but Moose managed to survive that.

Steve Maclin, disguised as a cameraman, hit a low blow and launched a vicious assault with a barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat on Callihan, following which Moose hit the Spear for the win.

IMPACT Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace won the title at Slammiversary! by winning the first-ever Queen of the Mountain match.

In her first title defense, she faced former champion Tasha Steelz. Despite multiple interferences from Savannah Evans, Grace defeated Steelz to retain her title.

3 MASSIVE German Suplexes barely fazed @bigjoedoering! #AgainstAllOdds https://t.co/k84Zcd5ZR7

Having defeated Violent By Design's Eric Young and Deaner in the last few weeks, Josh Alexander was tasked with defending his world championship against Joe Doering. The challenger dominated the match for a while before the champion fought back with a knee strike.

Deaner's interference helped Doering avoid the C4 Spike. The latter then continued to showcase his power and resiliency as he survived three German suplexes in a row.

After being pushed to his limits in a grueling encounter, The Walking Weapon finally managed to deliver the C4 Spike to put the big man down, retaining his title to close out IMPACT Wrestling Against All Odds.
