IMPACT on AXS notes: ROH group attacks D’Lo Brown & Matt Rehwoldt, Gresham vs. Maclin

Ring of Honor continues to invade IMPACT Wrestling, Jonathan Gresham to defend his World Title, Mike Bailey and Masha Slamovich in action

The Ring of Honor group that consists of Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, Maria Kanellis-Bennett, PCO and Vincent continue to target IMPACT Wrestling talent and staff. They appeared at the end of tonight’s IMPACT on AXS broadcast after Deonna Purrazzo won the ROH Women’s World Title. Matt Rehwoldt stepped into the ring so Deonna could exit but he was beaten down. Rich Swann and Willie Mack attempted to make the save but they were taken out as well.

They ambushed D’Lo Brown at the beginning of the show. PCO did a ‘senton’ onto D’Lo through a table.

W. Morrissey was not able to capture the IMPACT World Title at Hard To Kill. The current champion Moose pinned Matt Cardona in their three-way match. Morrissey appeared on tonight’s program and requested that Moose defend the title against him one-on-one. Moose declined and later in the show, he put the World Title on the line against Zicky Dice and scored a win in convincing fashion.

Scheduled for 1/20 is Jonathan Gresham defending the ROH World Championship against Steve Maclin. In addition to that, Madison Rayne and Tenille Dashwood are taking on Decay (Rosemary & Havok).

Former 3-time WWE Tag Team Champion Charlie Haas debuted in IMPACT and confronted Josh Alexander. Haas suffered a concussion at the tapings during his match with Alexander. To read his statement on the situation, click here.

There was a segment during the show when Eddie Edwards was shown laid out backstage. He was ambushed but his attackers have yet to be revealed.
