Impact Wrestling held their latest Impact Plus special event, Under Siege in Nashville last night and the main event saw Moose defeat five other men to take the victory and will now go on to face Kenny Omega for the Impact Wrestling World Championship at Against All Odds on June 12th.

The match also includes Chris Sabin, Matt Cardona, Sami Callihan , Chris Bey and Trey Miguel. At one point Callihan seemingly had the match won before interference from Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson cost him the match and set up an intriguing new feud. Moose took the win after a ‘No Jackhammers Needed’ spear on Sabin.

The penultimate match of the night saw Eddie Edwards, David Finlay and Juice Robinson score a huge upset victory over Impact Wrestling Champion Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers. Edwards was made to look strong in the match which likely makes him the early favourite to face Omega at Slammiversary, on the strong assumption that Omega remains World Champion at that point.

The one title change on the card saw Fire & Flava (Tasha Steelz and Kiera Hogan) regain the Knockouts Tag Team Championship from Jordynne Grace and Rachel Ellerring.

In other Championship bouts, Josh Alexan. der retained the X-Division Championship in an excellent bout against El Phantasmo and Deonna Purrazzo beat Havok to retain the Knockouts Championship.

In another bout with championship implications, Ace Austin and Madman Fulton became number one contenders to the Tag Team Championship belts held by FinJuice. They won a four-way tag team match over Petey Williams & TJP, Rohit Raju & Mahabali Shera and XXXL (Acey Romero & Larry D)

In addition to these bouts, Brian Myers defeated Black Taurus in the opener, Susan & Kimber Lee were beaten by Taylor Wilde & Tenille Dashwood and W Morrisey squashed Willie Mack.

Impact’s next major event is Against All Odds which airs on June 12th. As mentioned above, this show will be headlined by Kenny Omega vs. Moose for the Impact World Championship in what will be the last match before Moose’s contract expires and he is expected to leave Impact.

The following month, Sunday July 17th, Impact’s biggest event of the year, Slammiversary, will take place. This event will likely be marked by several debuts and the potential return of fans in attendance to the promotion.
