IMPACT Wrestling: Rich Swann took on Karl Anderson in a Bunkhouse Brawl

Just 9 days away from IMPACT Wrestling's Victory Road pay-per-view, this week's episode featured an action-packed lineup. Tasha Steelz took on Rosemary in singles action as she and Savannah Evans had their eyes set on the Knockouts Tag Team Championships.

X-Division champion Josh Alexander and challenger Chris Sabin were involved in the contract signing while Chris Bey and David Finlay faced off in a grudge match. Rich Swann battled Karl Anderson in the wild Bunkhouse Brawl.

The main event saw Moose battle fan-favourite Eddie Edwards in a hard-hitting bout. The number one contender for Christian's IMPACT World championship, Ace Austin, tried to scheme to gain an advantage over the champion.

That said, let's discuss some of the major talking points in this week's edition of IMPACT Wrestling. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

#5 Knockout Tag Team Championships stolen, Rosemary defeated Tasha Steelz on IMPACT Wrestling

Ever since Tasha joined forces with Savannah Evans, her eyes have been set on reclaiming the Knockouts Tag Team titles. Last week, they attacked the reigning champions, Rosemary and Havok.

Coming into the match, Rosemary dominated early on and climbed to the top rope to inflict damage but a distraction on the outside caused by Savannah helped Tasha to change the momentum.

The Demon Assassin fought her way back into the match which led to some back and forth action between the two, ultimately leading to a spear from Rosemary for the win.

After the match, Tasha caused a distraction which caused Evans to attack Havok and Rosemary from behind while she stole the title belts. Later in the night, it was announced that Tasha and Savannah will be challenging Rosemary and Havok for the titles at Victory Road.

#4 Bullet Club continue to wreak havoc on IMPACT Wrestling

With his tag-team partner Juice Robinson's attacker still remaining a mystery, David Finlay locked horns with Chris Bey with the intention of avenging his loss from two weeks ago when Bey cheated to win the encounter.

The two went back and forth with each getting in a good amount of offense. Towards the end of the match, Bey tried to take advantage by putting his foot on the ropes and pinning Finlay. At this point, Juice Robinson made his return and pushed his feet off the ropes. Finlay picked up the win off the distraction.

After the match, Hikuleo, making his IMPACT debut, came to the ring and attacked David Finlay and Juice Robinson. Hikuleo delivered the chokeslam on Juice and Bey set up a chair to attack his already injured knee. The four men will be involved in tag team action at Victory Road.

#3 Karl Anderson defeats Rich Swann in the Bunkhouse Brawl on IMPACT Wrestling

IMPACT World Tag Team champions Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson took out Willie Mack after losing a non-title bout to him and Rich Swann. In retaliation, Swann attacked the champions with a steel chair last week before security stabilized the situation.

The former world champion came into the arena with a vengeance on his mind and unloaded on both Gallows and Anderson, but a momentary lapse in concentration caused Anderson to take advantage.

Swann fought back and looked to be on his way to victory but Gallows interfered, crouching him on the rope. The Machine Gun capitalized on the distraction and delivered a Gun Stun from the top rope onto a table that refused to break. But it was enough for him to walk away with the win.

#2 X-Division Championship match contract signed on IMPACT Wrestling

Last week, the X-Division champion Josh Alexander issued an open challenge to any former X-Division champions, which was answered by Jake Crist.

After defeating him, Alexander staked his claim to being the greatest X-Division champion of all time which brought out Chris Sabin who asked for a title shot at Victory Road.

In this week's edition, Scott D'Amore presided over the contract signing and made the match official.

#1 A huge 10-Man Tag Team match announced for next week on IMPACT Wrestling

It all started when Ace Austin tried to goad Scott D'Amore into pitting IMPACT World Champion Christian Cage in a match against Madman Fulton, in an attempt to soften the champion ahead of their title clash.

However, D'Amore turned the tables and suggested a 10-Man clash as the main event for next week's show as Team Austin will battle Team Christian. Austin picked Brian Myers on his team while Christian recruited Josh Alexander followed by Chris Sabin.

He tried to recruit both Eddie Edwards and Sami Callihan into his team but Eddie refused if Sami was a part of it. Backstage, W.Morrisey and Moose informed Austin that they would be in his team if either Edwards or Callihan are part of Christian's team.

The main event of the night saw a hard-hitting battle between Eddie and Moose, with the latter ultimately gaining victory with a Lights Out, courtesy of a well-timed distraction by Morrissey.

After the match, Morrissey and Moose continued the attack on The Heart of IMPACT Wrestling. Chris Sabin made the save, followed by X-Division champion Alexander, but both were beaten down by Ace Austin and Madman Fulton.

After that, Christian came in but was thrown out by Morrissey and Moose who continued the attack on Edwards. His wife, Alisha, hit the ring to make the save but was overpowered by Morrissey before Callihan made the timely save. Edwards and Callihan joined forces to take out the heels as the faces stood tall to close out this week's IMPACT Wrestling.

Team Ace (Ace Austin, Madman Fulton, Brian Myers, W.Morrissey, Moose) will battle Team Christian (Christian, Josh Alexander, Chris Sabin, Eddie Edwards, Sami Callihan) next week.
