IMPACT Wrestling Results (December 3rd, 2019): Brian Cage vs Eddie Edwards, ODB and Rob Van Dam return
Two weeks ago, IMPACT Wrestling gave us one of the greatest gauntlet matches in recent memory. Featuring Daga, Rich Swann, Tessa Blanchard, Moose, Michael Elgin, and Brian Cage, it was an hour-long stamina contest, with all six competitors hoping to challenge Sami Callihan for the IMPACT World Championship. Blanchard managed to shock the world, rolling up Brian Cage with a sunset flip for the victory.
Michael Elgin was interviewed as he entered the building about the gauntlet match, specifically how he got himself disqualified. Elgin said that someone would pay for that decision tonight.
Tonight was also dedicated to one of the greatest IMPACT stars of all time, the four-time Knockouts Champion, ODB. Sadly, ODB's food truck burned down earlier this year, but the wrestling community came together for her, showing her just how loved she really was. That continued on this week's IMPACT Wrestling!
Eddie Edwards vs Brian Cage
Cage overpowered Edwards early, running through chops for a massive muscular shoulder tackle. Edwards was clobbered with a massive clothesline in the corner but managed to dump the big man to the outside. A hurricanrana sent Cage crashing to the floor.
Back inside, however, the Machine regained control. A deadlift suplex from the apron took Edwards all the way across the ring. Every time Edwards came up with some offense, Cage was able to cut him off.
After a vicious elbow strike, Cage set up for the Drill Claw. Edwards countered, taking Cage over with a suplex. A Blue Thunder Bomb gave him a near fall.
After kicking out, Cage stood toe-to-toe with Edwards. Both men took part in a brutal striking trade. However,, before we could get a finish to the contest, Michael Elgin rushed the ring, taking out both competitors.
Results: No contest.
Elgin continued to tear apart Edwards and Cage until several refs were able to separate him from his victims. Following that, Josh Mathews revealed that we'd now be getting a three-way bout between Elgin, Cage, and Edwards.
