This. is. it. The historic 1000th episode of IMPACT! goes down this Thursday at 8/7c on AXS TV and 8:30pm ET on YouTube for IMPACT Insiders as the two-night celebration begins. Don’t miss these monumental matchups and the return of IMPACT Wrestling legends!
One of the most accomplished tag teams in professional wrestling history, Team 3D, will reunite at IMPACT 1000. For the first time in 7 years, the former 2-time IMPACT World Tag Team Champions and world-renowned duo of Bully Ray and Devon are set to compete in tag team action – but who will their opponents be? One thing is for certain, someone is going through a table on this historic night!
The personal rivalry involving Eddie Edwards, Alisha Edwards, Frankie Kazarian and Traci Brooks will reach its boiling point at IMPACT 1000. For months, Eddie and Kazarian have been playing a game of one-upmanship in a series of singles matchups, and even the first-ever Back to School match from Killer Kowalski’s wrestling school. But when Alisha’s involvement tipped the scale in Eddie’s favor, it was Knockouts legend Traci Brooks who evened the odds for Kazarian. Now the two husband and wife duos will finally face off in an attempt to settle the score once and for all!
At Slammiversary, Lio Rush assaulted Chris Sabin before their scheduled X-Division Title match. Sabin put up a valiant effort but the damage he sustained was ultimately too much to overcome, kicking off Lio’s run as the new X-Division Champion. Following a successful defense over Sabin’s ally, KUSHIDA, Rush must now put his title on the line against the former champion, Chris Sabin, in a highly-anticipated rematch!
Feast or Fired will make its long-awaited return at IMPACT 1000 as 20 competitors battle it out in a high-stakes, high-reward showdown. Briefcases will hang high above all four corners of the ring and inside three of them will be a shot at one of the IMPACT championships. The other will hold the infamous “fired” slip which will force the holder to leave IMPACT Wrestling! Participants include Heath, Steve Maclin, Moose, PCO, KUSHIDA, Bhupinder Gujjar, Jai Vidal, Joe Hendry, Yuya Uemura and more.
At Victory Road, Josh Alexander proved that he’s back and better than ever when he toppled Steve Maclin in a physical match over one year in the making. Since his return from injury, Alexander has made it clear that his goal is to reclaim the title he never lost, the IMPACT World Championship. This Thursday, what will the “Walking Weapon” have to say? Find out on IMPACT 1000.
