The Coven (Taylor Wilde & KiLynn King) vs. Death Dollz (Courtney Rush & Jessicka) (Countdown to Under Siege)

This is Rosemary’s first match in IMPACT under the Courtney Rush gimmick that she recently reverted back to, in this non-title match. Rush and Taylor Wilde started the match with lockups and takedowns. Rush got the upper hand before Wilde tagged out to KiLynn King who instantly took control before Jessicka tags in as she and King start chopping each other. Death Dollz kept King in their corner with splashes, but Wilde was able to stop them. Rush tried a Sharpshooter on Wilde, but King stopped her with a suplex. The Coven keeps Rush in their corner with stomps before King hits a snap mare for a two-count. Jessicka tagged in but the referee didn’t see it as The Coven kept working on Rush who finally is able to make the tag to Jessicka. The Coven tried to hit their finisher on Rush, but Jessicka stops King with a pounce as Rush reverses Wilde into a Sharpshooter that she instantly submits to.

Winners: Death Dollz (Courtney Rush & Jessicka) by submission at 7:28

IMPACT Digital Media Championship: Joe Hendry (c) vs. Dirty Dango (Countdown to Under Siege)

Joe Hendry got on the mic before the match and said Dirty Dango has had an identity crisis which isn’t a surprise as he used to be a ballroom dancer and a fake police officer, and questions if tonight he will get a doctor, scientist, teacher, astronaut, or a parachute instructor. As soon as the bell rings, Dango heads to the outside and refuses to start the match. Hendry goes after him and clotheslines him on the outside before tossing him back inside. Hendry keeps attacking Dango in the corner and catches him into a trust fall followed by a stalling suplex for a two-count. Dango comes back by tossing Hendry into the corner and going right after his left arm and shoulder. Dango goes to the top rope, but Hendry pulls him into a cutter. They go back and forth until Hendry hits a fallaway slam and sets up for his finisher. Dango instantly counters that with a low blow as the referee disqualifies him. Dango kept attacking Hendry after the match, still targeting his left arm but before he could do more damage Santino Marella runs out as Dango escapes.

Right away, Nick Aldis catches Kenny King off the ropes for a suplex, sending King to the outside to regroup with Sheldon Jean. Aldis keeps going after King who keeps going to the outside where Aldis follows him, just to be tripped up into the steel steps. King stays in control with pin attempts before holding Aldis down in a stretch. Aldis heads to the outside, where King meets him with a dive. King keeps working on Aldis before Aldis dodges him and goes right after him with a fall-away pump handle slam for two. Aldis heads to the top rope, but King stops him with an enziguri. They started exchanging punches before Aldis catches King into a sit-out Michinoku Driver. Aldis heads to the top rope and hits an elbow drop, but Jean gets on the apron to distract the referee. Aldis takes out Aldis, as King rolls up with his feet on the ropes, but the referee catches him. King comes back with a spine buster for a two. King heads to the ropes, but Aldis catches him into a powerbomb and puts on the King’s Lynn Cloverleaf as King taps out.

Killer Kelly & Masha Slamovich

As Aldis is leaving, he points to something in the crowd. The camera zooms in and we see Killer Kelly & Masha Slamovich brawling in the crowd, continuing their fight from the previous night’s episode on AXS TV. Masha knocks Kelly over the railing and goes right after her before they make it ringside. Kelly hits a suplex on Masha, before tossing her inside. Kelly grabs a steel chain and starts choking Masha out with it before officials and security run out to stop them.

Who Am I?

Gia Miller is with Jordynne Grace and says how tonight could be Grace’s last opportunity to challenge for the IMPACT Knockout’s World Championship for a while or she could walk out as the new champion. Grace talks about being ready to carry this company on her back and she was supposed to retire Mickie James but couldn’t. Grace says a lot is on the line tonight and if she loses then she’s not the face of the Knockouts division, she’s not ready to carry this company on her back and not the best. And if she’s not the best, then who is she?

The Design (Deaner, Angels & Kon) vs. Sami Callihan, Rich Swann & Jake Crist

Jake Crist comes out as the mystery partner in his first match in IMPACT since September 2021 as he has the Ohio Versus Everything connection with Sami Callihan. Angels and Crist start the match before Crist quickly tags out to Callihan as they start double-teaming on Angels. Kon tags in as all six men have a face-off before they start brawling in and out of the ring. Angels escapes out of a Cactus Driver ’97 attempt and dives onto Callihan on the outside. Crist follows with a diving attempt, but Kon is able to stop him before brushing a diving attempt from Rich Swann as well. Crist comes back with an Asai Moonsault to take out Kon, but Angels stops Callihan from diving. Callihan grabs Angels and powerbombs him onto everyone else on the outside. Swann, Callihan & Crist start triple-teaming Kon, but he is able to fight all three of them off. The Design starts triple-teaming on Crist in their corner, but Crist is able to fight off Deaner and make the tag to Callihan.

Callihan fights all of The Design off before tagging out to Swann who hits a double cutter on Kon & Deaner. Everybody starts going after each other next before it ends up being Swann & Angels. Angels blocks a handspring cutter attempt, but Swann turns that into a roll-up for the pin and the win.

Santino Warns Dango

Gia Miller is backstage with Santino Marella, welcomes him back, and says he has his sights on Dirty Dango. Santino says he got attacked by Dango from behind but was able to rip off some of his hair that ended up belonging to Dango. Santino says he’s the Director of Authority and his role is to be impartial, but if Dango jumps at him in the back, he will punch his lights out.

Gia Miller is backstage with Subculture and mentions this being their first night in IMPACT. Mark Andrews says it is, but he’s been away from this locker room for 7 years and brought back Flash Morgan Webster & Dani Luna with him. Andrews says they pride themselves on starting from the bottom and fighting to the top, and they are going straight for the tag team championships. Webster starts talking about what they’ve been doing the last couple of years before they get interrupted by Brian Myers, Jason Hotch & John Skyler.

Westchester County Center

The Westchester County Center holds a special place in my heart, as it’s in my hometown of White Plains, New York (also the hometown of Arnold Skaaland and Captain Lou Albano). I am very happy to see a pay-per-view being held there and IMPACT’s return to that venue for the first time in 10 years. This has been a place where wrestling dates back to the 1950s with NWA Capitol Wrestling, WWWF, and ECW and the home to many of the early WWF Monday Night Raw episodes in 1993/1994, where I saw my first ever live wrestling show.

IMPACT World Championship No Disqualification Match: Steve Maclin (c) vs. PCO

As soon as the bell rings, PCO clotheslines Steve Maclin to the outside going over with him, but he runs back in and dives back onto Maclin. PCO starts attacking Maclin all over the outside, but Maclin comes back with a suplex to PCO on top of the steel steps. Maclin starts grabbing weapons from under the ring including a trash can and baking sheet he uses on PCO’s back and head. Maclin goes to dive to PCO on the outside but he swings that sheet at Maclin. This causes a huge gash on Maclin’s forehead, as he is now gushing blood all over the place. PCO follows that with trash can shots to Maclin’s head as he is now spitting out blood like a water fountain. PCO grabs a staple gun, but Maclin stops him with a low blow. Maclin starts using a chair on PCO before setting up the trash can in the corner. Maclin keeps attacking PCO with a chair, hitting an elbow drop with it for a two-count. Maclin puts PCO in the Tree of Woe and hits Crosshairs, with the trash can in between for another two-count. Maclin grabs the staple gun and starts stapling PCO’s mouth and chest all over as PCO now starts walking around like the actual Frankestein’s Monster. PCO grabs a pair of pliers and starts ripping the staples off his lips. Jeez! Maclin grabs a sledgehammer and takes out PCO with it. Maclin then grabs sheets of concrete and places them on PCO’s back before smashing them with the sledgehammer, but PCO still kicks out at two. PCO comes back with a DDT, a lung blower and a leg drop off the second rope for a two-count. PCO follows this with the De-Animator, but Maclin comes back by tossing a chair to PCO while he’s back on the top rope and drives him spine first off the top rope onto the apron. Maclin grabs five cinder blocks and puts them in the ring, but PCO grabs him and hits a reverse DDT. PCO goes and grabs two more blocks and places Maclin on top of them. PCO heads to the top rope, but Maclin gets right up and slams PCO on top of them followed by KIA on top of the cinder blocks for the pin and the win.

Absolute Bastards

Maclin gets on the mic and says if this is going to be done, it’s going to be done the way he said it was and calls out Scott D’Amore to put the title around his waist and shake his hand, just like he said he would. D’Amore comes out and puts the belt around Maclin’s waist and goes to shake Maclin’s hand, but Maclin leaves instead. Bully Ray shows up behind D’Amore and starts choking him out with a belt strap. Bully tells Maclin to get the table, and they set a table up in the ring. Bully goes and grabs lighter fluid, as Matthew Rehwoldt leaves the commentary table and tries to talk some sense into Bully & Maclin. Bully knocks out Rehwoldt and starts spraying the fluid all over him. PCO gets back up and pushes Bully down, but Maclin attacks PCO with his title belt. The Motor City Machine Guns run out but Maclin & Bully take them out as well. They light the table on fire and powerbomb D’Amore right through it as Tom Hannifan calls them ‘absolute bastards’. Bully gets in D’Amore’s face and says the best part about this is he’s the guy who signed him there, he’s never leaving and he’ll never get rid of him. Bully continues saying he is here forever, he’s taking D’Amore down and he’s taking this whole company down. Bully raises Maclin’s hand to end the show in such a wild fashion.
