A vignette aired during the 1/20 IMPACT on AXS to promote the arrival of ‘The Quintessential Diva’.

Jordynne Grace successfully defended the Digital Media Championship against Lady Frost. Post-match, Grace was confronted by Matt Cardona and he pointed at her title. While being interviewed backstage, Cardona formally issued a challenge to Grace for her title.

Former 3-time WWE Tag Team Champion Charlie Haas made his IMPACT in-ring debut against Josh Alexander. Haas fell in defeat to Alexander but the two talents shook hands post-match.

Their interaction was interrupted by Ring of Honor’s Matt Taven, PCO, Maria Kanellis-Bennett, Mike Bennett and Vincent. This led to IMPACT’s Rich Swann, Willie Mack, Chris Sabin, Eddie Edwards, Heath and Rhino coming to the ring to even the numbers game.

Jonathan Gresham bested Steve Maclin on tonight’s program to retain the ROH World Championship. Maclin opted not to shake Gresham’s hand after the match.

The Knockouts Tag Team Titles will be on the line at the 1/22 IMPACT tapings as The IInspiration (Jessica McKay & Cassie Lee) defend against Madison Rayne and Tenille Dashwood. A video of McKay and Lee aired during the 1/20 show and the duo made light of Rayne’s past retirements.
