[X Title]Alexander over Perkins & Austin(8/10 walking weapons) [8 Man Tag]VBD over Mack/Edwards/Storm/Sabin(7/10 sawft surprises) Myers over Cardonna(6/10 not sorry sickles) [KO Tag Title]Rachel Ellering/Jordynne Grace over Fire-N-Flava(6/10 jazzy upsets) [Last Man Standing]Miguel over Callihan(7/10 rocky balboa rascalz) [Tag Title]FinJuice over Brothers(7/10 juicey g.o.d.'s) [KO Title]Purrazzo over Dashwood(6/10 triple virtuossa's) [Double Title]Omega over Swann(7/10 gamer overloads)
[Earth Day Impact]Color team of D-Lo Brown & Matt striker. First two absent elements I noticed was no past/present lady color team member & NO fans.(if AEW had low # since summer & mania had mostly full # why didn't this brand plan accordingly?)While I commend alexander on first major usa single title push at the same time also agree mr"ace of spades" reign was cut somewhat too short.(plus austin's promo/gimmick/heel level combo reflects the x champs of 2000's and sells much better merch-wise) Congrats on storm's recent 1000th match! "World class maniac"(& comeback award contender)eric young showed extensive leadership trading his spot and not interfearing.(which complimented debuting ex wwe "cas & enzo"s W Morrisey's work that much better) It's refreshing to see myers realize whatever small level potential that otherwise went ignored for years by wwe. Whlie it was extra inspiring to see ellering's daughter pair with ex champ grace yet to have said new pair win gold at rising star team's expense was wrong for handful of reasons.(IS jazz a school coach & manager now??) Callihan played his part like the all purpose menace he is while miguel is in solid position to realize breakthrough year. Only two reasons I can see for gallows/anderson not regaining gold is don callis only "cares" for omega and iwgp isn't ready to offer longer reign that was denied finjuice last year. Whlie for a few obvious reasons(& a couple secret ones)that dashwood NEEDED tis win I also didn't expect purrazzo's second reign to end yet.(having 2 people interfear multiple times runs the risk of subtracting champs' street cred & belt's value) Double title main event was good however I expected very good-to-excellent considering hype level. I also guess how much potential conflict of interest both brands risk having belts on one pro.(and that's not counting AAA belt which only had ONE defense last year) For my first impact recap I grade it B.
[World Title]Moose vs Josh Alexander! [Non Title Grudge]Honor No More's Leader Eddie Edwards vs Jonathan Gresham! "Top Dog" Jonah Rock vs "Stone Pitbull" Tomohiro Ishii! [X Title]Trey Miguel vs Ace Austin vs "Speedball" Mike Bailey!

Steve Maclin over White & Sabin(7/10 marine miracles) [segment with scott d'amore & alexander's family] [AAA Reinas Title]Taya Valkyrie over Deonna Purrazzo(6/10 reina de locas) [X Title]Ace Austin over Mike Bailey & Trey Miguel(8/10 double aces) Tomohiro Ishii over Jonah Rock(7/10 colossal pitbulls) [8-Way Tag Title Dance]Violent By Design over Rhino/Slater,Bennett/Taven,Swann/Mack,Good Bros,Swinger/Dice,Cardona/Myers,Grace/Morrisey(7/10 world class maniacs) [KO Title]Tasha Steelz over Rosemary(6/10 decaying boriquas) [World Title]Josh Alexander over Moose(8/10 family justices)
[Earth Day Impact]PPV and post sunday event done in same new york state area as first HOH debut. I apologize acccidentally missing ko tag title & edwards-bey.(who subbed for strangely absent gresham. So how does a pro who wasn't ill or injured,who handles THREE titles,marriage and his own brand miss one of impact's top 3 shows??) Rookie maclin earned large upset in surprisingly strong fashion.(face mask was cross between punisher comic and suicide) Acknowledge how much the former "jade chung"(ROH 205)has grown being mrs alexander/a parent and running her own brand! Congratulations on taya's 4th AAA belt!(tying all time record with faby apache)Although sad for bailey not reinforcing comeback year with gold I must admit austin does deserve third reign,(especially hearing about "rebellion curse" that made him lose last two years) Between 2-1 record and unfinished pco angle I expected jonah to continue 3 month streak. The grace-morrisey team has very intriguing potential but needs experience countering distractions. If bullet club adds 2 members(including female)and turns face a bc/honor no more feud would inspire new brand fans. Young/Doering made an extra bold statement in how they view themselves compared to other brand champs. Ex 2X tag campeon steelz is adjusting quite smoothly to singles heel mode while slowly rising star rosemary gave scary good effort. Rookie award winner(and overrated ROH pro)moose has grown considerably an an actor giving heelish performance worthy of "farooq" ron simmons & early jay lethal. Congrats to undisputed 2X world champion alexander who took fans on an emotional/physical roller coaster like a canadian rocky balboa. ((HAPPY 20TH!!)) Grade B+
