Gonzo Shark’s IMPACT Wrestling Report – Show air-date: August 23, 2018

The show opens with a video package that highlights everything from last week’s episode.

Eddie Edwards comes out wearing a Rocky Balboa shirt and claims that no matter what he will dust himself off and pick himself up, especially after what he’s been through, and he is looking for a fight! He also proclaims that he loves what he has become and he’s a man with nothing to lose which makes him a very dangerous man! He emphatically says that he’s has vision of cracking Austin Aries and Killer Kross with his kendo stick and he wants to make that vision a reality, so he calls them out. Aries comes out with Kross and gets in the ring to talk some smack. Edwards smashes Aries with the microphone and smashes Kross with the kendo stick, but the numbers are too much and they simultaneously lock Edwards in the Kross Jacket Choke and the Figure-Four leg lock before officials come and break it up. Edwards is left motionless, face down in the middle of the ring. They fight off officials and are about to destroy Edwards with some chairs until Moose comes to his rescue with a chair.

Tonight! The end all, be all: A Mexican Death Match between Sami Callihan and Pentagon Jr. in the main event! We see Callihan with OVE in the back and he assures them and everyone else that everything is Pentagon Jr’s fault and he will right the wrongs of the masked Luchador in tonight’s headliner!

Moose is in the back helping Eddie Edwards and Alisha Edwards comes up and hugs him and thanks him for what he did. Moose tells Edwards that they will get retribution.

Zachary Wentz makes his entrance to face Matt Sydal. Matt cuts a promo in the back before coming out and explains to Wentz that this is a chance for him to have his third eye opened. Sydal quickly takes control with a headlock, to which Wentz answers with a few high flying dives that rattle Sydal. Matt sneaks under the ring and comes out from the other side to ambush the young star. He starts laying the beating down at this point. Wentz is able to mount a small comeback but Matt Sydal hits a barrage of knees and kicks before landing his finisher for the pinfall victory.

Sami sets up a table on the outside against the barricade. He goes for a suplex into it, but Pentagon reverses and performs a front flip plancha over the top rope that sends both of them crashing through the table. Pentagon has Sami down in the ring and definitely on “dream street” when he starts smashing him with a pinata that has a staple gun inside of it.
