On the marquee for the 1/25 TNA Wrestling on AXS is Kazuchika Okada teaming up with Alex Shelley and X Division Champion Chris Sabin to take on The System (Moose, Brian Myers & Eddie Edwards). The match was taped days prior to New Japan Pro-Wrestling announcing that the multi-time IWGP World Heavyweight Champion will be leaving the company. 

Adding on to the lineup for the next show is Jordynne Grace defending the Knockouts World Championship against Trinity. Grace bested Trinity at Hard To Kill to win the belt. 

Nic Nemeth had an in-ring segment and expressed that he’s looking to become TNA World Champion. He was interrupted by Steve Maclin. Maclin ended up taking a swing at Nemeth, but it was avoided and Nemeth hit his ‘Danger Zone’ (Zig Zag) finisher onto Maclin. Nemeth is making his TNA in-ring debut on 1/25 against Zachary Wentz. 

There was a tag match that saw Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake & Zack Gibson) best the duo of Frankie Kazarian and Eric Young. After the match, Kazarian ambushed Young. 

Closing out the show was a singles bout between Josh Alexander and Will Ospreay and it was Alexander emerging victorious. 

One of the newest additions to the Knockouts division, Xia Brookside, picked up a win over Tasha Steelz.
