They are using the crowd noise for the weekly TV series now.
Matt Striker and D’Lo Brown are the announcers.

They showed footage of Moose attacking Rich Swann after Hard to Kill.
Backstage, Acey Romero and John E. Bravo approached Tommy Dreamer and told him his theory that a Knockout used Ring Rust to turn Larry D into Lawrence D in order to get him to shoot Bravo. I get paid to type sentences like this. Ridiculous!
The Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions came out and praised themselves for their win at Hard To Kill. They make the headlines and they are the place holders for Impact. Chris Sabin came out. He said the Motor City Machine Guns didn’t lose those belts and they want their rematch. Gallows said that it makes sense he wants to do business with the Good Brothers but he doesn’t have a partner. They told him to get out. Sabin said Alex Shelley isn’t here but he does have a partner. Out came former Impact Wrestling Champion James Storm. Storm cut a damn good promo but was interrupted by AEW’s Matt Hardy and Private Party.
Matt said Private Party have the potential to be the second best tag team of all time, behind The Hardy Boys. Tomorrow, they have a big six man tag on Dynamite so he brought them to Impact for a warm up match since they need a warm-up match. Hardy said he gets 50% of their payday since it’s a third party booking. Storm said that this was a private conversation, not a private party. Hardy said that they aren’t experiences enough to talk for themselves, so everyone should be talking to him. He said in 2016, he put Impact Wrestling on his back and saved the company from bankruptcy so everyone should be thanking him. Hardy suggested Private Party challenge for the Tag Titles tonight. He said he and Jeff never lost the belts, they were taken from them in a stupid teleportation angle.
Sabin and Storm said none of that has anything to do with them. The Good Brothers suggested they should fight it out and the winners can get a title shot. Hardy said he’s going to have his team of lawyers deal with Impact’s lawyers. He told Private Party he needed them to be vicious and mean and after they win, they are coming for the Impact Tag Team titles.
Gia Miller interviewed Matt Cardona. Cardona said he’s here to prove himself to everyone and to himself.
They showed footage of the new Knockouts Tag Team Champions crowned in Fire N’ Flayva.

Swinger showed up, trying to hit on them. Tasha Steelz realized that Swinger had the fannypack he lifted from Steelz. Fallah Bah showed up and said he stole the fanny pack with the money from them but they stole it from him and he wanted it back. He argued with the champs, allowing Swinger to slink away like the rat he is. As all this was going on, the elevator behind them opened and Brian Myers walked out, disgusted by all of this. He and Bah had words and Bah said he’ll see him in the ring tonight.

Backstage, Taya was asked what is next for her after losing to Deonna at Hard to Kill. She began cutting a promo on Deonna and friends when John E. Bravo burst in with Tommy Dreamer and Acey Romero and accused her of having him shot. Dreamer said they found the ring rust and it has her prints on the bottle. They found the footage and know she did it. Taya admitted she did it. She said the only regret is that Bravo didn’t die. Dreamer had security drag Taya out. Acey wondered where she is will end up. If she’s lucky, she’s going to Jacksonville State Prison but if she isn’t, she’ll be going to Stamford Correctional for 2 years with an option for a third year and trust him, that will change a person together. Romero said he hopes she doesn’t end up in Baltimore. Bravo looked sad and asked Dreamer to hold him. Dreamer consoled him and said it’s finally over.
As Taya was being dragged out, Rosemary scared off security. She asked Taya why she didn’t tell us. Rosemary said that she had a plan. Taya said she doesn’t know why but one of the biggest accomplishments in her career, no matter what she does next, was having Rosemary in her corner. They hugged. Security dragged Taya out. Rosemary said that this is why we don’t have friends, because it never works out for them. Crazzy Steve said that all of this excites him and he and Rosemary walked off.
They went to a paid ad from AEW. Tony Khan was with Jerry Lynn and said he was going to be watching the main event tonight very closely. They ran down the Dynamite lineup. Khan said he sent Matt Hardy here to Impact because he can’t out-carny Impact and what they are pulling on AEW, but Matt is the biggest carny there is. Khan said he’s going to be out there scouting the match at ringside with Jerry Lynn and they are going to find their way to ringside.
Matt Striker said the enemies are at the gate.
Impact Champion Rich Swann made his way to the ring in street clothes. He said that he left his heart in the ring under pressure on Saturday. He said Moose did the same, even if he didn’t know he could trust Moose. He said what is going on between him and Kenny Omega isn’t over but Omega isn’t in the building. He said Moose beat down his friend and attacked him after the PPV, so with an open schedule, he wants Moose to come out so they can settle this once and for all. Moose came out wearing a suit and entered the ring. Moose said he knows Rich is angry but people tend to make bad decisions when they are angry and that tends to make him angry. He said he knows what Moose is capable of when he’s angry – just ask Willie Mack. He said that nothing between them is going to be settled until he gets his title shot.
Swann said he called him out to give him his title shot right now and dared him to go. Moose said that’s not how this works. Moose will say when, not Rich Swann. He said Rich is on his time. Swann said time’s up and nailed Moose. They battled. Moose missed a charge in the corner and Swann drilled him with the Phoenix Splash off the top.
Rohit Raju was complaining to Scott D’Amore about what went down at Hard to Kill. Impact Wrestling X-Division Champion TJP walked in. Raju lost his mind. Scott told him that TJP couldn’t get a title shot again and he didn’t, Manik did. He said everyone knows TJP is Manik and he’s the champion. He told Raju he could face TJP in two weeks. Raju said that’s all he wanted and stormed off, not realizing he agreed to a non-title match.
Backstage, Alisha Edwards was trying to get in with Fire N’ Flayva for their “festival.” Alisha said she could be their emcee. They tried to sell referee Brandon Tolle a package to the Festival, so this is ABSOLUTELY a Fyre Festival parody. As all this was going on, Havok and Neveah stepped up behind them. They wanted in but the Champions told them all the packages were sold out so they could sit at home with their cats and watch on TV. They found their way out of the room, leaving Neveah and Havok to stew.
Brian Myers vs. Fallah Bahh
They locked up and Myers tried to power up Bahh, but that wasn’t going to work. Myers grabbed a side headlock but Bahh used his power to easily escape. He nailed a high cross bodyblock for a two count.
Bahh controlled the match for several minutes but Myers kept kicking out. Myers began drilling him with right hands but it didn’t hurt Bahh. Bahh went to do his “No No No” but Myers acted like he was thumbed in the eye. The referee checked on him and when he turned, Myers drilled Bahh low and then drilled him with a lariat for the pin.
Your winner, Brian Myers!
Gia Miller interviewed Ace Austin and Madman Fulton. He was complaining. Josh Alexander showed up and said nothing is given in the business, it has to be earned. Austin said he think he earned it.
