Impact Wrestling Results – September 8, 2020
Welcome to this week’s Impact Wrestling on AXS TV report.
This week’s episode opens with the new Impact Wrestling Champion Eric Young making his first official appearance as champion. Young made his way to the ring and said everyone was looking at a world class man, athlete, professional wrestler and maniac. Rich Swann pinned him at Slammiversary, so he had to take immediate action. Swann didn’t realize that he got the ball rolling and now it’s rolled over Swann and Eddie Edwards. He told everyone this was by design and his winning the title ws inevitable.
Alisha Edwards came out. She said he was nothing but a coward who came back here to make a statement but decided to start injuring people. She warned him Eddie Edwards is going to come back and take what belongs to him. She’s seen it all and she’s not afraid of anyone who tried to screw with her family and she’s not afraid of Young. It’s only a matter of time before Eddie takes the title back and kicks his ass. She said that Edwards can’t even hold their little one at home or take her for a walk and that’s on him. Young said he doesn’t care. Edwards slapped him. Young went to walk away but grabbed her for a piledriver. Tommy Dreamer hit the ring and attacked Young with a Singapore Cane, making the save. Young warned Dreamer to stay out of his business.
Dreamer took the mic and said that he’s a hypocrite for stopping him after all the women he’s piledriver but he’s seen the pain of someone who wakes up everyday with the ramifications of taking that piledriver. He said Edwards, Swann and Eddie are his family because when Young decided to leave, they stayed and gave him a home to come back to. He said Young is a hell of a wrestler but he’s a piece of sh** scumbag that wants to take people out. He dared Young to do what everyone’s being trying to do for year – take Dreamer out. He said he’d wrestle Young tonight in any stipulation. Young said he made his last mistake and Dreamer’s body was going to be on the pile when he’s done. He said Dreamer was a punk just like Eddie Edwards and Rich Swann and he’ll see him tonight.
Josh Mathews and Madison Rayne reviewed what we had just seen and talked about what was scheduled for tonight’s episode.

Rosemary, Taya and John E. Bravo were all together. Taya said she loves love and they are truly in love. She wants to arrange the wedding of the century. Rosemary said that there are very few who can officiate a demon wedding and one of them is dead, but they can resurrect him. She said that means Bravo is going to have to handle the planning. Taya offers to handle everything and is beyond excited about it, especially putting herself in the middle of it all.
TJP vs. Chris Bey
They went right after each other, scrapping and wrestling back and forth. X-Division Champ Rohit Raju came down to ringside, taking it all in. Bey drilled TJP with punches and strikes in the corner but was distracted by Raju being there. TJP caught him with a head scissors and hit a springboard into a lucha style armdrag. He sent Bey to the floor, then went to the top after they returned to the ring. Bey charged but TJP caught him in a triangle. Bey rakes his eyes and clotheslined TJP as they went to commercial…
When they returned, Bey continued controlling TJP. He drilled TJP with a leaping kick to the back of the head, scoring a two count. TJP was trapped in an abdominal stretch. TJP fought his way out but Bey went for a springboard move. Bey was snatched in mid-air but rebounded to nail a Torture Rack into a slam. Some really nice wrestling here. They continued back and forth until TJP scored the win with a sunset flip into the ring.
Your winner, TJP!
Josh Mathews wondered if this meant TJP was next in line for a title shot.
Next up was Locker Room Talk with Madison Rayne interviewing Susie and Kylie Rae. Swinger is back. Madison was happy to see Swinger for 15 seconds. They were asked about WrestleHouse but before they could really answer, Rayne asked if they were there so long to avoid Kylie having to face Deonna Purrazzo and then returned to ruin her Black Tie Affair. Deonna Purrazzo and Kimber Lee showed up and challenged them to a tag team match next week.’
Brian Myers is heading to the ring.
They plugged next month’s Bound for Glory PPV.
John E. Bravo is on the phone making wedding plans when Tasha Steelz and Kiera Hogan showed up demanding to know if they were invited to the wedding. They scoffed at the idea that Taya was making plans and said he needed to make his own plans and stand on his own two meet and be a man. They offered to be his best groomsmen. He said Taya wouldn’t like that so they knocked Taya and said to be a good husband, he needs to be a man. Poor, ever suffering John E. Bravo.
Brian Myers made his way to the ring to offer Willie Mack a handshake. He said they may have gotten off on the wrong foot. He said he’s the most professional wrestler, has wrestled in all 50 States and has tons of sky miles. He’s been in the right with legends and Hall of Famers, so Mack shouldn’t feel bad that he lost to Myers. He said that there is a time honored tradition for a handshake. He said that he was going to offer Mack the chance to shake his hand like a true professional. Mack came to the ring. Myers held his hand out but Mack said he wasn’t there to shake hands of be professional. He’d like to shake Myers’ neck a few times. Impact management has offered him a rematch after what happened…right now. Myers said he didn’t come to wrestle and has to warm up, tan and do calisthenics. Mack said if he’s so professional, he should know to bring his gear. Trapped by his own words, Myers agrees.

Grace said they should go ask her and dragged the camera crew to Dashwood’s locker room. She knocked on the door but out came Caleb with a K, who introduced himself as Tenille’s personal photographer. It was Caleb Konley in the role. He told Grace she had way more important things to do than be here. Grace asked when she was coming back to work. We went to shots from a photo gallery and then an announcement Dashwood would return next week. Grace was disgusted and walked off. Caleb with a K said, “Someone’s got an attitude.”

Rob Van Dam and Katie Forbes announced that next week will be the debut of the Whole Fn’ Talk Show.
After a commercial, Sami Callihan hacked in and said everything in life is about numbers. Last week, he beat RVD because Sami is one of the best wrestlers walking the planet. He said that after the match, he got attacked because of the numbers. He can admit when someone has his number and Katie Forbes has it. He said that maybe Katie is too much for him, because she’s a little too much in general. He said a birdy told him a rumor that RVD and Forbes will debut their own segment next week. Since Forbes has his number, he promises not to hack the show, because he has other plans.

Moose meets with an old football coach. Moose said he needed a favor and asked if he had seen EC3. He explained who EC3 was and was told that he hadn’t seen him. The Coach then said “Control your narrative. You’ve been warned.” Moose realized some guys in black hoodies were behind him and he took them out before exiting.
They aired a classic Impact+ clip featuring EC3 vs. Moose vs. Mike Bennett.
Backstage. Rhino and Heath were marveling at how well the #Heath4Impact campaign. Heath needed more money to do more ads. Rhino said he knew where to find some cold hard cash.
Madison and Josh wondered what they were talking about and whether they might be talking about Hernandez’ ever-present wad of cash.
