godfrey1

I was gonna comment this too, the visuals scream amateur E-Fed.


noaliciaigotkeyes

Honestly couldn’t even tell names were written. Had to figure out by half their blue faces


zolablue

i'm like 'ooh. mackenzie james... wait. thats mickie james. sweet. i like her new name!"


Survivor_for_me

One would assume it’s gonna be Bullet Club vs. Good brothers for the tag titles


MonsieurMidnight

Not really looking forward to a Good Brothers's match frankly. They just don't do it for me and I really wished Austin and Fulton were pushed again. But looks like Swann and Mack are getting a slow push for quite a while so I expect them to be challengers to the Tag Titles very soon.


fiveminutes4fighting

Can someone who watches impact explain what the “call your shot” gauntlet is?


MewMatic

Intergender battle royal where the winner is determined by pinfall or submission when it's the final two. Winner receives a trophy and a title shot of their choosing up to a year.


Celtic_Crown

Rumble-style Battle Royale that has the final 2 try to pin or submit each other. Winner gets a trophy for any title of their choosing (even a man can be a Knockouts singles or tag champ with it). The trophy works like MITB. Last time, Rhino and Joe Doering won the titles from FinJuice with it.


shadowrangerfs

I guess that in theory a guy could challenge for a women's title but it's never happened. No woman has won the gauntlet yet but Impact has allowed women to challenge for men's championships.


AFakeInternetPersona

Because technically Impact is intergender. All the titles can be held by anyone but they don't open that can of worms by having men challenge for the Knockout's championship. Way less messy to have women occasionally cross divisions.


SmashEnigma

Technically Eric Young won the KO tag titles before so there is precedent.


noaliciaigotkeyes

They need Scott Steiner to challenge for the women’s title


ryper42

More specifically, Rhino and Doering won the titles by calling their shot/cashing in immediately after FinJuice had defended the titles against another team.


shadowrangerfs

20 person intergender royal rumble. Final 2 must get a pin or submission. Winner get the trophy. They can "call their shot" to challenge for any championship in Impact at any time. But only once.


RaveConnoisseur

From what I remember, it's a battle royal where anybody can join, men and women, and the winner gets a shot at any championship he or she chooses


The_Batman_cometh

Iirc it’s a regular battle royale, the “call your shot” but refers to the fact you get a title match of your choosing if you win.


GnusmasAikon

Regular battle royale until the final 2 participants, then it becomes a regular match.


Survivor_for_me

Gauntlet match. When there’s 2 participants left they go to a normal match. Winner get a trophy that can be cashed in for any title match.


gregscotia_number1

Alexander for champ


Hark_An_Adventure

Has Christian done much in Impact since becoming champ? Excited for Alexander to get his time on top, but if he didn't end up having a meaningful title reign, that'd be kind of a bummer. Unless the whole thing is just "champion of an era gone by passes the torch to the future" or something?


charlottemw

I know it's complicated, but it sucks that there won't any kind of blow-off to the Kenny Omega-as-champ story that dominated the company for most of the year. Alexander vs Omega would have been super hot fire. This match will rule, it just doesn't have the same build.


AsianKitchenGuy

Looks like they didn’t get enough time to marinate Awesome Kong’s graphic in blueberry juice like the others


NateRivers640

Is blue meanie hosting?


Zxphenomenalxz

Blue man group performing live.


LoudKingCrow

Well it is in Vegas.


Somerandomdickhead

Man I hope Alexander wins. So far you’ve had Kenny (an AEW guy) win the belt on an Impact PPV. He then lost it to Christian (another AEW guy) on Rampage (an AEW show). Let an Impact talent go over at this point, especially on their biggest PPV.


askmeforbunnypics

Second this request! It honestly really annoys me that something like that could happen. So much build for Kenny. He had so much screen time. Every week he was there with Don Callis talking all manner of shit. Then he's gone. Lame.


cooljammer00

Cool card, hard to read


gredgex

Inspiration look great, glad they’re back.


silklighting

The Iisparation has finally arrived!


chairduck

literally cannot read this but I'm sure it'll be a great show


randomdude1142

God I can’t wait for this show.


natedoggcata

aight Ill guess ill check wikipedia cause i cant read any of that


svssmars776

looks like a dope show definitely watching.


Thirdstar1

Lookin good so far.


Bleeditout26

Wait wasn't Josh Alexander the X Division champ? Did he relinquish the title?


destructionfun2

Yes. He invoked Option X/Option C to get a world title shot, thus vacating the X Division Championship, which was won by Steve Maclin.


M086

X Division Championship is vacant, there's going to be a three-way match between Maclin, Trey Miguel and an opponent to be determined next week.


destructionfun2

Ahhh okay, I couldn't tell by the eye bleedingly neon font they chose.


Bleeditout26

Ooo interesting. I had no clue such kinda options existed. Josh is one of my favs but Christian just won the title This match is gonna be nuts!


destructionfun2

Yep, it's only ever been done a couple of times before, Austin Aries was the first one to do it, then I think Chris Sabin (please correct me if i'm wrong) was the second person to do it.


LoudKingCrow

Those two are the ones I remember doing it. It requires you to have held the X-Division belt for a specific amount of time to be able to activate I believe. You can't just win the X-Division title and then invoke option C a month later.


LiuKang90s

> You can't just win the X-Division title and then invoke option C a month later. Nah, you can. From what I recall, when Aries won the X Division title for the fifth time, he invoked option C about 5 days later


Mr-Remy

i wanna say lio rush or buddy matthews will be the mystery xdiv challenger, super small chance of it being chris hero but I'd kinda love it.


CLAXP

Kenny should challenge Josh Alexander some time after this.


Burner_Account_Bob

Prior to this announcement I was thinking Don West might get a Impact HOF nod at Bound For Glory this year considering his health stuff and his work for the company.


IASIPxIASIP

IMPACT usually has the best graphics out of all wrestling companies. But this one is horrible unfortunately. Still gonna be a fun show for sure.


MuhGumbo

I thought the 2000s nightclub colors were cool. Guess that's just me. Ace has to be doing something with CD, and I feel like Swann and Mack and BeyBlade might be in the tag with the Good Brothers. Who is a potential third for the X-Division match??


7guy7

Who the fuck is in charge of Impact graphics. They are always so awful.


Boograssi

I feel like I'm looking at something different here. These cards look really dope to me and it's kinda apparent what the names are lmao


Rjswimss

Absolutely zero flame or hate to Hangman, but imagine if things had gone to the original plan, and we could have had Kenny Omega vs Josh Alexander. Like are you fucking kidding me I’d fly across the fucking country for that


throwawaitnine

Yea, I don't get why he dropped the Impact titles when he did.


shadowrangerfs

the word is they wanted a shock for the first episode of Rampage and they needed to make Christian look like a strong challenger for All Out.


exwxc

Tony Khan saw an opportunity for Omega to lose the Impact belt without getting pinned by an impact wrestler and took it.


LOGWATCHER

This art is amateur hour, wow


totallykyle101

At least they're not going to AEW after all.


Impossible_Aerie_245

Crazily enough the company that ditched them can use them more than the others right now


celsiusred

How many competitors are part of the gauntlet?


M086

20 men and women. They usually toss in a few popular indie names as surprise entrants. This year I can see some AEW and NJPW guys possibly entering.


Butch_Meat_Hook

What happened to the early advertising where they were flashing AAA, NJPW logos etc?


Aljo_Is_135_GOAT

Impact just keep getting in their own way smh
