News From the Show 

Sami Callihan Turns on the Design 

After weeks of speculation and questionable behavior from Sami Callihan, he finally turned on The Design. Deaner gave Callihan his signature baseball bat to use on the opposition. As Callihan was about to unleash his signature weapon on the opposing team, he turned and assaulted Deaner, leaving the match afterward and allowing Santino Marella to pick up the win with the Cobra.

Nick Aldis Returns to IMPACT

Nick Aldis made a surprise return to IMPACT as a special guest commentator for the IMPACT World Championship. He is a former TNA World Heavyweight Champion and TNA World Tag Team Champion under the name Magnus. He was a part of the roster from 2008-2015 and in 2017. Aldisalso made a one-off appearance at the 2022 Multiverse United event where he teamed with Mickie James against Matt Cardona and Chelsea Green.

Steve Maclin Wins the IMPACT World Championship 

After a brutal back-and-forth match with KUSHIDA, Steve Maclin became IMPACT World Champion. After the match, Maclin grabbed a microphone and demanded Scott D’Amore be the one to hand him the belt. D’Amore came to the ring and obliged but not happily. Maclin, not happy with D’Amore’s attitude, hit him with the belt. This caused Nick Aldis to get up from the commentary position and confront Maclin. With Dreamer coming out on top of the Hardcore War and pinning Bully Ray, this rivalry is likely over with, or at least heading to the closing phases.

Deonna Purrazzo Becomes Knockouts Champion

Deonna Purrazzo defeated Jordynne Grace to become Knockouts Champion for the third time. The two Knockouts left it all in the ring in the main event of the show. In the end, Purrazzo got her hand raised in Canada to close out the night.
