Impact Wrestling tonight will be their first episode from the August tapings. The promotion taped inside Toronto’s Rebel Nightclub on August 12 & 13th. Next week’s episode will be a special-branded “Impact ReDefined” show. Following the next 4 episodes, Impact will head to Mexico City for two nights of tapings there.

Impact Wrestling Preview 8/23

Brian Cage Speaks

  • Brian Cage still hasn’t been pinned or submitted since arriving in Impact Wrestling earlier this year. He will speak for the first time since arriving in the territory tonight.
  • The current X-Division Champion found out last week his next title-challenger will be Fenix. The two will meet for the title next week at Impact ReDefined.

Kiera Hogan vs Alisha Edwards

  • There is said to be mutual respect between Hogan and Edwards heading into this match.
  • Edwards better not be too worried about the ongoing mental spiraling her husband is going through. If so, Hogan could likely pick up her 3rd televised victory for the promotion. She’s already defeated Laurel Van Ness and Taya Valkyrie (via DQ) so far this year.

Fallah Bah & KM vs the Desi Hit Squad

  • Last week, Bah and KM were given some advice from Scarlett Bordeaux. The Smoke Show expressed to KM that they had tried things his way and maybe they should try things Bah’s way now.
  • KM seemed to get behind the idea and even stressed he would be buying matching tights.

LAX Celebrate Their Street Fight Victory

  • LAX defeated the OGZ and took back possession of the Impact tag-team titles they never officially lost. Tonight, Santana and Ortiz will host a live in-ring celebration.
  • Perhaps King and the OGZ will be watching…

Matt Sydal In Single’s Action

  • Matt Sydal has had to find a new purpose and direction since losing the X-Division Championship at Slammiversary.
  • Sydal seems to have made peace with the fact that the X-Division Championship chose Cage and not him. He’ll continue his new journey tonight as he takes on a wrestler TBD (not Richard Justice).

Eddie Edwards Speaks

  • Eddie Edwards was robbed of his chance to win the Impact World Championship recently. Just when it seemed as though Edwards had the title won, Killer Kross interfered and cost him the match. It was then revealed that Kross and Aries are aligned.
  • Kross and Edwards took out Edwards again last week during a talking segment. Edwards is going to try things again tonight, however, and perhaps hope for a better result.

Mexican Death Match
Pentagon Jr. vs Sami Callihan

  • Impact Wrestling heads to Mexico in 3 weeks but tonight Mexico comes to the Impact ring. Callihan challenged Pentagon to this Mexican Death Match tonight.
  • The promotion is advertising that this will be the first Mexican Death Match ever broadcast on national television.
