Impact Wrestling Results (10/19/17): The Road to Bound for Glory continues
This week's edition of Impact started with Moose & Stephan Bonnar entering the Impact Zone along with the championships they stole from American Top Team (ATT). A while later, ATT showed up backstage, and they didn't look happy.
Next, a recap of last week's #1 Contenders match was played where Johnny Impact defeated Garza Jr and he will now face Eli Drake at Bound for Glory for the Global Championship.
#1 Chris Adonis vs Johnny Impact
Impact jumped right after the bell and knocked out Adonis with a boot to the face. He quickly followed it up by assaulting Adonis with a barrage of elbow strikes. Somehow, Adonis fought his way out of this and trapped Johnny in a body lock for a two-count. Adonis signalled for the Adonis Lock, but Johnny managed to manoeuvre his way out of it.
Johnny regained his momentum by nailing Adonis with a bunch of kicks. Impact took down Adonis with a Swinging Neckbreaker for a two-count. He tried finishing off Adonis with a Springboard Spinning Kick, but again, could only get the two-count.
After the commercial, Impact & Adonis were fighting on the top-rope. Adonis crashed down from the top, thus allowing Impact to hit him with the Starship Pain for the win.
Result: Johnny Impact def. Chris Adonis
Post-match, Eli Drake tried to assault Impact, but Impact stopped him in his tracks and whipped Drake by using Drake's belt. Chris Adonis recovered and helped out his friend by attacking Impact. The assault on Impact continued until Garza Jr. came out with a chair, thus making the heels run away.
Next, a video package was aired of Alberto El Patron's return to Impact Wrestling at Bound for Glory.
#2 Team IMPACT vs Team AAA
Although labelled as "Team IMPACT vs Team AAA", this was almost like a five-way match with each man looking out for himself. The action spilt all around the ring and in the final moments of the match, EC3 tried nailing Fantasma with the One Percenter, but Fantasma countered it by hitting his finisher.
However, he couldn't make the pin due to some interference. At the end, amidst all this chaos, Texano Jr. pinned EC3 to pick-up the win.
Result: Texano Jr. def. James Storm, EC3, Eddie Edwards, El Hijo del Fantasma
oVe arrived in Tijuana, Mexico, to mess with LAX, even though Konnan warned them not to come back. One of Konnan's minions informed him that oVe wanted to LAX.
Konnan told him that if they wanted to meet LAX, they'd have to put the tag titles on the line at the next CRASH event.
Backstage, Team IMPACT's EC3 & James Storm argued about losing their match. Eddie Edwards informed them that he was leaving soon for Japan, and so they better sort out their differences before he gets back.
In Jim Cornette's office, Dan Lambert had a heated conversation with Scott D'Amore and Cornette regarding what transpired at ATT's facility.
