Scheduled for the 5/16 edition of TNA iMPACT is a 16-person Champions Challenge tag match. It’ll be all of the champions in the company going up against potential challengers to their titles. Here are the participants in the match: 

  • Moose (World Champion), Mustafa Ali (X Division Champion), Eddie Edwards (Tag Champion), Laredo Kid (Digital Media Champion), Brian Myers (Tag Champion), Jordynne Grace (Knockouts World Champion), Masha Slamovich (Knockouts Tag Champion) & Alisha Edwards (Knockouts Tag Champion) vs. Matt Hardy, Steph De Lander, Sami Callihan, Eric Young, Joe Hendry, Dani Luna, Jody Threat & Ryan Nemeth

In the main event, ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey and Trent Seven bested ABC (Chris Bey & Ace Austin). With the victory, Bailey and Seven are set to go one-on-one to determine a challenger to the X Division Championship at Against All Odds on June 14th. 

The System (Moose, Brian Myers, Eddie Edwards & Alisha Edwards) held a celebration in honor of every member of the group having a title. It was interrupted by Matt Hardy and when it got physical, Hardy was outnumbered but making the save was Ryan Nemeth. 

There was a vignette that saw Gail Kim drive to ‘Lotus Wellness Retreat’ to find Gisele Shaw. She told Shaw that they need to talk. 

A sit-down interview that Tom Hannifan conducted with Mike Santana aired. 

Joining the 5/16 lineup is a rematch between Xia Brookside and Ash by Elegance. Brookside gave Ash her first loss in TNA.
