Preview: IMPACT Wrestling (6/23/20)

Deonna Purrazzo

IMPACT Wrestling returns on Tuesday night with another episode of IMPACT! Wrestling on AXS TV, with a Knockouts heavy episode that will finally see the in-ring debut of Deonna Purrazzo. Ace Austin‘s feud with Eddie Edwards continues, as does Chris Bey‘s targets on IMPACT X-Division Champion Willie Mack, plus much more!

Willie Mack & The Deaners (Cody Deaner & Cousin Jake) vs. Chris Bey, Johnny Swinger & ???


Chris Bey has had his sights on X-Division Champion Willie Mack for weeks now, with Bey utilizing Johnny Swinger as his back-up. Willie Mack found an unlikely ally in Cousin Jake a few weeks ago and now Cody Deaner has returned from COVID lockdown in Canada to join the fray. On Tuesday night, Mack and The Deaners will be facing Bey and Swinger in 6-man tag team action, but the identity of Bey & Swinger’s “third man” has yet to be revealed.

Taya Valkyrie (w/ John E. Bravo) vs. Susie

Taya Valkyrie lost her Knockouts title opportunity the other week against Jordynne Grace and will now be looking to get her name back in contention, but to do so, she’ll have to face Susie. Susie has been on a bit of a losing streak in IMPACT Wrestling the past few months, but it’s only a matter of time before the innocent Knockout snaps and we see the return of her violent alter ego, “The Undead Bride” Su Yung.

Tasha Steelz (w/ Kiera Hogan) vs. Nevaeh (w/ Jessicka Havok)


The pairing of Kiera Hogan and newcomer Alisha Steelz has spiced up the Knockouts division, but they’ve run into trouble by upsetting Jessicka Havok and her new IMPACT ally in longtime indie partner Nevaeh. Last week Nevaeh defeated Kimber Lee in her IMPACT in-ring debut and this week she’s turning her eyes on the trash tacking Steelz in singles competition. This rivalry is just starting to heat up!

Deonna Purrazzo vs. Alisha Edwards


Deonna Purrazzo has been making statements loud and clear since her first vignette last month, and since then has attacked reigning Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace. On Tuesday night, she’ll finally step in the ring for her IMPACT in-ring debut, taking on the returning Alisha Edwards. Alisha has been gone for months (off on quarantine with husband Eddie Edwards), but she’s back and looking to get back into the hunt for gold. But Deonna Purrazzo may still be more driven and will most likely use Alisha as an example, not only for Jordynne Grace but the entire Knockouts division.

Madman Fulton (w/ Ace Austin) vs. Eddie Edwards


Last week, Ace Austin defeated Eddie Edwards in a Street Fight, but not without the help of his new enforcer, former oVe big man Madman Fulton. Edwards will be looking for revenge on Tuesday night when he faces Fulton one-on-one, but Austin’s presence will undoubtedly be felt. With Slammiversary just around the corner – where both Austin and Edwards are the five-way for the IMPACT World title – one would assume that these mind games from Ace Austin are designed to wear the former World Champion down ahead of their big PPV match.
