Impact Wrestling Report (09/21): Victory Road Go-Home Show
The show opened with an in memoriam of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan before recapping the events that transpired last week. Johnny Impact defeated Low-ki to become the #1 Contender for Eli Drake's Global Championship. Also, Bobby Lashley announced that he would be leaving Impact to pursue MMA full-time.
Seeking retribution for Drake's assault on him last week, Johnny Impact entered the arena, seemingly in a foul mood, looking for him. Impact entered the ring and demanded that a title shot against Eli tonight. However, instead of Eli Drake, out came KM and informed Johnny that Drake's in Mexico before challenging Johnny for a one-on-one match with his #1 Contenders spot on the line.

The instant after the bell rang, Impact nailed KM with a Superkick before following it up with a Corkscrew Senton for a two-count. Johnny went for a springboard into the ring, but KM foiled his plans by kicking him off the top rope and then immediately assaulting him. Impact somehow managed to get out of KM's clutches and knocked him down.
He tried finishing off KM with the Starship Pain, but KM rolled him up from out of nowhere for an unsuccessful dirty pin. Impact with regained momentum knocked out KM with a Beautiful Disaster kick before nailing him with a Thursday Night Delight for the three-count.
Result: Johnny Impact def. KM
Backstage, newest Impact roster member Pagano conversed with some mystery wrestler before going to on to speak with El Hijo Del Fantasma.
Following the backstage segment, the show aired a video package featuring Taya Valkyrie's debut against Amber Nova and Rosemary.
#2. Taya Valkyrie vs. Ava Storie
Just like last week, Taya Valkyrie squashed her opponent with a couple of moves before finishing it off with Road to Valhalla for the three-count.

Post-match, Valkyrie took to the mic to inform that she'd arrived at Impact for the Knockouts Championship and demanded Karen Jarrett to award her with a title opportunity. However, instead of Karen Jarrett, out came Rosemary and claimed that she's the one who deserves a title shot before attacking Taya. Sienna ran out to help Taya, but Valkyrie pushed her away and continued fighting Rosemary. Soon, Allie, Taryn Terrell, and Gail Kim joined into the mix. In the end, the babyfaces (Allie, Rosemary, and Gail Kim) stood tall.
On last week's episode of Impact, oVe, after their match against LAX at CRASH in Tijuana, decided to pay a visit to LAX's clubhouse. They continued that segment this week, with oVe going to the clubhouse. The segment ended with LAX giving oVe another shot at the Tag Team Championships on next week's episode of Impact.
