With Chelsea Green no longer in the picture, Gisele Shaw approached Deonna Purrazzo about teaming up and going after the Knockouts Tag Team Titles. They’ll get their opportunity on 12/22 against the champions, ‘Death Dollz’ (Jessicka & Rosemary) who’ll be accompanied to the ring by Taya Valkyrie.

There was a segment with IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander talking to Scott D’Amore about heading out to the ring to call out Bully Ray. Tommy Dreamer stepped into frame and Alexander accused Dreamer of being in the know about Bully’s antics and playing innocent. 

This led to Dreamer confronting Bully in the ring and their on-screen friendship imploding. Bully admitted to being the person that ambushed Ace Austin backstage and told Tommy that he lied to his face about it. 

A new Taylor Wilde vignette aired and she described herself as a ‘Wilde Witch’. Taylor has talked about being a witch on her podcast. She dove into the specifics of it and the assumptions that most have when they initially hear that she views herself as such.

A new tag team was formed in John Skyler and Jason Hotch. They were conversing and both felt like the other were made out to be just ‘good hands’ and decided to band together. 

IMPACT Digital Media Champion Joe Hendry tagged with Bhupinder Gujjar to take on Zicky Dice and Johnny Swinger. Gujjar was left to fend for himself because Moose chased Hendry to the back with a chair. Gujjar ended up securing the win. 

The following bouts are scheduled for next week: 

  • Tasha Steelz & Savannah Evans vs. Mickie James & Jordynne Grace
  • Steve Maclin vs. Rich Swann

Before Crazzy Steve and Black Taurus took on The Major Players (Brian Myers & Matt Cardona), X Division Champion Trey Miguel attacked Steve from behind and spray painted his back. Myers and Cardona went on to secure the win. 

Sami Callihan bested Angels in singles competition. Post-match, he was beaten down by The Design (Deaner, Angels & Kon).
