Impact Wrestling on PopTV
Taped October 15-16 in New York City, New York at the Melrose Ballroom
A recap video package aired of last weekâs Impact Wrestling show followed by the Impact intro themeâŚ
Josh Mathews and Don Callis were on commentary. Josh Mathews said that viewers should text their friends since Johnny Impact is wrestling Fenix in New York CityâŚ
Impact started off with Scarlett Bordeaux doing a stripper dance on the entrance ramp for a few fans in the front row. Josh Mathews said Scarlett wasnât on the run sheet. Don Callis said Scarlettâs on his run sheet. Josh reminded viewers that Scarlettâs talent search was open to the general public. Scarlett hung around the ring for the upcoming entrances.
Trevor Lee made his entrance and actually played things straight. The Ohio trio of Sami Callihan, Jake Crist, and Dave Crist made their entrance next. Dave Crist bent over the ring ropes for an extended period of time to get some extra stare in on Scarlettâs cleavage. Sami pulled Dave away, so he could do their OVE entrance routine. Scarlett took a seat at some sort of Ikea custom looking chair at the entrance stageâŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: Itâs cool that Trevor Lee playing it straight, but we have been burned before with teases of ârealâ Trevor Lee pushes, so I wonât hold my breath. Fingers crossed that they finally do right by this blue chipper? Even Impactâs best creative regime ever, Dave Lagana and Matt Conway, did this gem wrong.
1. Trevor Lee vs. Sami Callihan (w/Jake Crist, Dave Crist). Sami blindsided Trevor before the bell, which for some reason in Impact means itâs time to ring the bell (Impact really needs to hire a QA manager to point out and extricate some of the dumb s*it they do. Don Callis seems good for that job. Give him a pay bump). Sami stomped a mudhole in Trevor in the corner. Sami went for a series of corner splashes, but Trevor caught Sami by surprise with a darting dropkick. Trevor used some shootfighting techniques on Sami in the corner. Sami regained control with the help of Jake tripping Trevor.
Sami hocked a loogie in his hand so he could slap Trevor in the chest. Josh said that Sami gets fined by Impact a lot but it doesnât hurt him because Sami could get his cult followers in Ohio to donate money to cover the fine. Trevor and Sami traded CQC moves. Sami reversed Trevorâs Sunset Flip into a DVD. Josh noted that Sami runs an independent promotion called Rockstar Pro in Ohio. Trevor made it to a vertical base during a Sami headlock. The camera focused on Dave Crist being infatuated by Scarlett.
Sami hit Trevor with a draping Cross Rhodes. Callis noted that Callihan wanted to send a message to Cage. Callihan got distracted by Dave being distracted by Scarlett. Lee caught Callihan with his innovative crossbody powerslam. Callis said that Dave was being a âprevertâ. Scarlett left the stage. Lee hulked up and knocked Jake from the apron. Lee hit Jake with an impressive top rope Triangle Moonsault. Lee hit Callihan with a standing double stomp. Jake tripped Lee off the top rope while Sami distracted the referee. Callihan hit Lee with a pile driver for the victory.
Sami Callihan defeated Trevor Lee via pinfall in 10:41.
Dave was selling being tripped off the apron. Brian Cage made his entrance during the post-match. Jake went for a flip dive but was caught by cage before he could get lift. Cage Jackknife Bombed Jake on Dave. Callis said that Cage looked jacked. Callihan tried to hit Cage with a bat but Cage stole the bat from Callihan. Cage taunted Callihan by calmly giving him the bat back. Cage said give me your best shot. Cage ducked the bat shot and gave Callihan an F5 (Thank God! In LU when he did that he would no sell pipe shots to the head). Jake and Dave pulled Callihan away to prevent Cage form hitting Sami with a Drill Claw. The Crist Brothers pulled Sami into retreatâŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: In all honesty, that might have been Trevor Leeâs best showing in Impact Wrestling in his three years in this company. This was also probably his best showing since a match he had against Bobby Lashley, Eddie Edwards, and Drew Galloway. I remember this match exactly because ever since then heâs been treated as an incompetent and cornball redneck stereotype. Itâs going to be tough because Leeâs been damaged so much to the point where you ask yourself is this worth it. Hopefully they finally get it right with this guy. As for OVE, why are these guys being made to look so weak in 3-on-1 situations with Cage? I know Sami picked up the protected win over Cage, but itâs been two weeks where Cage has dominated the supposed powerhouse trio.
Eddie Kingston was backstage ranting and hollering about the old men mob bosses ordering the OGz not to touch Konnan and âThe boysâ (The young LAX duo). Kingston talked about how embarrassed he felt. Homicide reminded Kingston that the bosses said that they canât touch Konnan. Kingston said he knows and itâs time to reload and regroup. Kingston calmed down when a light bulb flashed in his head. He said he got something and found a way that they can attack Konnan (indirectly?)âŚ [c]
Gama Singh was doing resistance band bicep curls while Rohit Raju was massaging Gamaâs back. Rohit asked Gama how this is supposed to prepare Rohit for fighting against Gama. Gama yelled not to question him. Gama said itâs the ultimate test, to fight âThe Great Gama Singhâ. Gama asked Rohit if he was ready. Rohit said he was ready with a solemn toneâŚ
Josh Mathews and Don Callis checked in from the upper deck of the Melrose Ballroom. Callis said that Gama calls his knockout right-hand punch, âThe Greetings from Mumbaiâ. Josh ran through the upcoming matches on the show. For some reason Kiera Hogan is wrestling Su Yung again (so the Kiera character wants to kayfabe die again? Alright.). Josh said he likes âPsycho Rabbitâ Allie. Callis and Mathews were interrupted by Eli Drake. Callis tried to send Drake to the back since Drake is suing the company. Drake told Callis not to make things personal which implied that he was threatening physical harm on Callis. Callis took off his headset and cowered away saying that Drake should do commentaryâŚ
Some random team called The New Heavenly Bodies showed up (I think this was that team that Jeff Jarrett was really high on when he first rolled out Global Force Wrestling). They came out to the same generic entrance music that Impact gave La Parka. Josh Mathews said you can see these guys wrestle on Impactâs twitch specials. Josh Mathews reminded viewers of Kingstonâs claim that he can get to Konnan earlier. Josh asked Drake why he was suing Impact? Drake said that itâs due to Impact being an unsafe working environment. Drake also talked about how he defeated LAX earlier this year to become a tag team championâŚ
2. âThe Latin American XChangeâ Santana and Ortiz (w/Konnan) vs. âThe New Heavenly Bodiesâ Gigolo Justin and Desirable Dustin in a non-title match. Eli Drake said itâs an overarching problem that things are unsafe in Impact. Drake also brought up La Parka using a chair against Drake. LAX isolated one of the bodies with quick tandem offense. The bodies managed to gain an advantage and brawl with LAX on the outside. One guy got a one count on Ortiz. The bodies initiated a methodical isolation sequence on Ortiz. Josh tried to use the bodies to plug the Twitch channel.
Santana managed to get in for the hot tag sequence. Santana hit one guy with a tope dropkick. They then hit the other guy with a Power Bomb death drop and moonsault-leg drop combo. The guy that looks like Dash Wilder broke up a pinfall. After some brawling, LAX hit the Dash Wilder looking guy with the street sweeper for the win.
The Latin American XChange defeated The New Heavenly Bodies via pinfall in 5:54.
Josh asked Drake if he was suing Impact because he was mad at his open challenge backfiring. Drake said he dominated the open challenge and itâs already in the pastâŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: Well that wasâŚ a matchâŚ Maybe this was supposed to be an ad for their Twitch channel due to Josh constantly bringing it up? Kinda like what WWE was doing with Finn Balor and Jinder Mahal the past few months for the Mixed Match Challenge? Anyway this was well wrestled by LAX as usual but forgettable. So forgettable that Josh Mathews didnât bother to tell us which Heavenly Body was Justin and which was Dustin. Also, why is Drake just roaming around in Impact for no real reason? Heâs not as bad as Jimmy Jacobs was earlier in the year, but heâs getting close.
Tessa Blanchard confronted Taya Valkyrie in the makeup room regarding Tayaâs accusations in the past few weeks. Tessa said she doesnât care about what Taya says or thinks about her. Taya said Tessa must care because she was busting in here like a âchica locaâ. Tessa brought up all of Tayaâs excuses and reminded Taya that in the end Taya is not the champion. Tessa said she doesnât need shortcuts. Tessa said she was putting the title on the line next week. Tessa said diamonds are forever. Taya said sheâll see Tessa next ThursdayâŚ [c]
Johnâs Thoughts: They really need to do a video package or something to turn Taya babyface because Tessa comes off as the believable and honorable one in this whole picture. Impact can check out Lucha Underground Season 4 Episode 9 for how LU did this for Johnny and Taya there. Aside from the flawed Taya characterization, at least Tessa is still looking like a star and Taya and Tessa can put on great matches that donât involve murder, zombies, and finger lasers. But going back, Tessaâs right. Tessa didnât cheat. The referee just really wanted to make sure the Comda logo was showing. Not to mention, Tessaâs early run in Impact included her getting screwed over due to incompetent referees to Taya just comes off as pissy.
Konnan, Santana, and Ortiz were strolling backstage. They were randomly confronted by Matt Sydal and Ethan Page. Sydal tried to hype Ethan Page while also continuing to advertise his third eye thing. Sydal said heâs not afraid of the Tag Team Champions and not afraid of a legend like Konnan. Konnan said it sounds like Sydal has been consuming the hallucinogenic mushrooms and or the Peyote because thatâs what hippie white boys like Sydal like to do these days. Konnan then sarcastically said that Sydal was being a bit gangsta by standing up to LAX. Santana made Sydal flinch. Santana walked away calling Sydal and Page âscrubsâ. Ortiz walked away mocking Sydalâs third eye finger point. Konnan said âI thought soââŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: Okay, upon Sydal and Page randomly looking like they are about to be the next Tag Team title contenders, I was already writing this upcoming feud as a waste of time due to the makeshift Sydal and Page tag team. After Konnanâs wit shined again, I kinda wanna see this feud last a few weeks if only to have Konnan rip into Sydalâs crappy third eye character like he did here. Remember when Konnan tore the Crist Brothers to shreds due to them being two babyface a-hole dweebs? That led to Impact changing course on the Crist Brothers and I wouldnât mind seeing Konnan tear Sydal to shreds to redirect his character. Plus, I just get a kick out of Konnanâs genus wit.
McKenzie Mitchell interviewed Moose and Killer Kross about their upcoming match against Fallah Bahh and KM. Mooseâs random wardrobe attire of the week was a black jacket that looked two sizes too small for Moose. It kinda looked like a BDSM Gimp jacket. Moose said McKenzie Mitchell looks stunning like usual. Moose talked about putting KM on the shelf for a few weeks while Bahh only speaks gibberish around the locker room. Moose said when theyâre done with Bahh, he might actually speak in English. Killer Kross said Heath Ledgerâs dog chasing a car line from the Dark Knight. Kross said that Kross is not a car but a freight train of annihilation. Kross said everyone in the business is on this train and the destination is doomsday. Kross said his White Rabbit (his LU wizard character) catchphrase of âTick Tockâ. Moose said âTick Tockâ in a goofy wayâŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: Random thought, why is Killer Kross still teaming up with the goofy, but awesome, Moose character? If I remember correctly, Kross only teamed up with Aries due to Aries paying him to be his personal hitman. Aries is gone. Now theyâre just a standard heel tag team cutting heel promos from the â80s.
A Fenix sit-down interview aired. Pictures of Fenixâs early Lucha Libre career were spliced in the interview. Fenix said when he first put on the mask he felt 100% confident in himself for the first time. Fenix said he felt the explosiveness and passion coming from the Lucha Libre. Fenix said he first wrestled in America for Lucha Underground. Fenix said Konnan has been a huge part of his life (Konnan personally scouted Penta and Fenix and brought them into AAA and LU as top prospects). Fenix said Konnan has been with him and his brother since Fenix was 15. Fenix said heâs willing to admit that Pentagon is âthe guyâ and the person supporting him.
Fenix said that Pentagon is like his brother, father, and best friend all rolled into one. Fenix said they always look to get better. Fenix started to get emotional in saying that he loves Pentagon and Penta is his hero. Clips of Fenix doing his innovative parkour moves were shown with Josh Mathews and Don Callis sound bites. Fenix said he wants to be the best. Fenix said people believe in him that heâs the best and heâs here to prove that. Fenix said the title was on the line tonight and itâs inside his soul to win it. Fenix said he canât wait to fight with respect and honor. Fenix said âSorry Johnny, because Fenix has come here to become âthe best’ââŚ [c]
Johnâs Thoughts: Yo! Impact management and WWE, take note of this. Whoever produced this sit-down video package deserves a pay raise, a promotion, and should do all the vignettes for Impact from this day forward just like this. This was the best video package Iâve seen Impact do in a long time. Fenix is a below average live promo, but the advantage of the sit-down interview, as mastered in UFC, is you can make a nervous public speaker look like the best talker in the world because you have edit and retake control to scrub all the bad parts and leave the golden parts. This was great. This also proves my point before BFG that the OVE vs. Team Lucha Underground match was a waste of time because Cage, Pentagon, Fenix, Sami Callihan, and the Crist Brothers as a unit can all be easily positioned in main event pictures and for some reason they were hidden in a throwaway trios match.
Rich Swann and Willie Mack were shown getting sâfaced over what looked like Rum and Cokes. Swann saluted to BFG and the BFG after party. Mack saluted to Swannâs good match against Cage. Mack said he really wants Rich Swann to be his first singles opponent on Impact and they can still be homies afterward. Swann liked the idea and said it was time to show Impact whatâs up. Swann said it was time to show the world whatâs up. Rich Swann wanted to get more cocktails and Mack chugged his so they can go get moreâŚ
The Desi Hit Squad theme played as Josh Mathews cut to some clips of Gama Singh in Stampede Wrestling. Mathews said Gama is a former NWA Canadian Champion. Mathews said Gama is legitâŚ
Gama Singh was in the ring to cut one of his boring ass promos for himself this time. He actually put more enthusiasm in his promo for himself (can you blame someone for feeling being in an Impact/TNA ring is not worth it?). Gama said the wrestler he is introducing is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Gama said heâs defeated UK wrestler Marty Jones for the UK Championship, Abdullah the Butcher for the West Indies Heavyweight Championship, Bad News Brown for the All-Africa Heavyweight Championship, Bret Hart in Stampede, Dynamite Kid for a world mid-heavyweight championship, Owen Hart for the commonwealth heavyweight championship, and the list goes on and on. The crowd chanted âBoringâ. Gama said this is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, the Great Gama Singh and his opponent was just âRohit RajuââŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: As bad as Gamaâs been in his entire Impact run because he always sounds like heâs about to fall asleep while cutting promos, Iâd be lying if I didnât tell you that this was hilarious in a Chris Jericho âARMBAR!!!â sort of way. If he did this every week it would get old quick, but this was great for the moment. Good work, Gama.
3. Gama Singh vs. Rohit Raju. Callis said Gamaâs resume is legit and a legend in South Africa. Josh Mathews said Gama is 64 years old. Callis said Gama has shot fire balls. Gama shoved Rohit early on. Gama got a hammerlock on Rohit early on. The crowd chanted âyou still got itâ because of course they would. Gama then locked a headlock after the collar and elbow. Gama pulled at the hair of Rohit. Rohit complained about Gamaâs dirty fighting. Gama poked Rohit in the eye. Rohit then gave some of his slaps to Rohit. Rohit held back Gamaâs hand and Don Callis yelled that Rohit was attacking a 64-year-old man. Suddenly a random man in a turban ran in and the ref called for the bell (I didnât hear a bell).
Rohit Raju defeated Gama Singh via an apparent DQ in 1:50.
The mystery attacker hit Raju with a gutbuster. Gama then pinned Rohit for the faux pinfall that the mystery man counted. A âyou deserve itâ chant happened. I think they inserted canned boos because there was this weird boo buzzing noise but the crowd looked unreactive aside from the few chanting âyou deserve itâ. Gama gave Rohit Raju a hug. Josh Mathews wondered if Rohit Raju passed âthe ultimate testââŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: I did a little bit of research and I think this mystery man might be Gamaâs son, Gama Singh Jr. The only pictures online of Gama Jr. are with him and Jinder Mahal because Gama Jr. and Jinder are cousins and grew up together and trained by Gama Singh. Again, Iâm not 100% on this because Gama Jr doesnât have pictures online but the bald guy next to Jinder Mahal kinda looks like the mystery man and it would make sense.
McKenzie Mitchell interviewed Johnny Impact about his upcoming title match (Uh oh. Henniganâs cutting an interview. I kid). Johnny said he canât say enough about Fenix that hasnât already be said. Johnny said heâs seen Fenix compete in wars. Johnny said Fenix is acrobatic and exhilarating, almost as good as Johnny. Johnny said Fenix is one of his best friends. Johnny said Fenix was at his wedding and he got the married couple an outdoor BBQ pit as a gift because Fenix knows that Johnny and Taya like to grill chicken outside.
Johnny said Fenix being concerned about a homieâs macros goes way beyond friendship. Johnny said Fenix is family and every family fights. Johnny said this time family is fighting in the ring in front of the nationwide audience for the Impact world championship. Johnny said he understands Fenixâs journey and how much this match means to Fenix. Itâs inspiring. Johnny said heâs motivated to fight hard tonight to defend the Impact World Championship. Johnny ended the interview by saying âmay the best man winââŚ [c]
Johnâs Thoughts: Cool. Two weeks in a row and Johnny is finally starting to break away from his bad promo habits and sound like a main eventer should. He does still sound awkward, but more like a human being and heâs coming off as relatable. Again, Iâm higher on his world title run now because this is a chance for him to sink or swim and right now he looks like heâs trying hard to swim. The best part of this interview is he avoided his weird crunchy voice he reverts to and his oddball insults like Turd cutter or Douche RocketâŚ
Scarlett Bordeaux was shown viewing a tablet while in a bathtub because for some reason Impact feels all her backstage scenes need to look like softcore porn parodies. Scarlett advertised her fan auditions. Impact then aired a clip montage of the fan submissions. Fans actually sent in videos, ugh. One guy wanted to show Scarlett his âtalentâ, kung fu. One guy was good at making a cup of coffee. The kung fu guy started stripping (I told ya! People are sending in dick pics!). One guy was reading a back of a DVD box. Coffee guy made a cup of coffee and said it was good before spitting it out. One guy cosplayed as a boat skipper?
The show cut back to Scarlett where told viewers the email address where you can send your video submissionsâŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: Now letâs think of this logically. Why would people send in âtalentâ videos? On one hand, are there really nerds out there who think they have a shot at getting some from Scarlett after sending in their nerdy dating video? On the more logical end, maybe they just want to end up on TV; but why would you want to look stupid on Impact Fân Wrestlingâs weekly TV show? Alrighty then. Only in TNA? Impact superfans confuse me sometimes. Other times they make me laugh.
KM and Fallah Bahh were out first for the upcoming match. Moose and Kross came out to Austin Ariesâs newer Impact theme except Austin Aries was edited out of their video wall. Moose was suddenly wearing a red silken jacketâŚ
4. KM and Fallah Bahh vs. Moose and Killer Kross. KM and Moose jawed with each other. KM rained punches on Moose and hit a flurry of offense on Moose. After a dropkick, Moose went into ground and pound on Moose. Moose tagged in Kross after thumbing the eye of KM. KM got Kross to the mat. Kross and KM traded mounts. KM shoved Kross to their corner so Bahh could tag in. Bahh hit Kross with a twisting splash on Kross. KM and Bahh took their time doing their steamroller roll on Kross. They got Moose to the ground so Bahh could do his modified Peopleâs Elbow, which was a foot to the mouth.
KM caught Moose and Kross with a flip dive to the outside. Bahh hit Kross and Moose with a dive from the apron. Kross was bleeding from the back. Kross started to no sell a series of Bahh lariats. Mathews said Kross is fired up after seeing his own blood. Callis said seeing his blood turns Kross on (thatâs such a Matt Striker line). Bahh went to Moose to knock him off the apron which allowed Kross to blindside Bahh with a clothesline. Moose went into the ground and pound on Bahh. Moose yelled that he was shoving his boot into Bahhâs face because Bahh put his foot in Mooseâs mouth. Don Callis got distracted by a Fallah Bahh fan wearing a panda mask.
Bahh no sold Mooseâs corner chops. Moose spat and yelled that âIâm Mr. Impact Wrestling and youâre just a fat piece of shit!â. They censored the âshitâ (I thought this was âafter darkâ?). Bahh turned the tables and then dominated Moose with a series of flailing punches. Bahh grounded Moose with a running crossbody. Moose bit the head of Bahh and dragged him into his corner so Kross can isolate him with kicks and knees. Kross taunted KM by dragging Bahh to an inch of the tag only to turn it into a Cross Arm Breaker.
Bahh âBahhâdâ up on Moose with the noselling. Bahh caught Moose and hit him with a Belly to Belly. Kross tagged in to knock KM off the ropes and prevent a tag. Bahh countered Kross into a Samoan Drop. Eddie Edwards ran in to choke Moose with a Kendo stick. The referee didnât catch this and wondered why Moose was gone. Kross managed to dispose of Bahh from the ring and lock in the Kross Jacket on KM. KM passed out.
Moose and Killer Kross defeated KM and Fallah Bahh via ref stoppage in 9:39.
Kross went into a seated focused pose after the match. Kross then marched to the exit where Eddie Edwards dragged MooseâŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: A pretty good tag team match. The only thing I would have taken out were the comedy house show spots that Bahh and KM were doing early on in the match. There were other problems, but only harmless nitpicks. Kross and Moose did give up more offense than expected, but I really liked the fire Bahh showed here to show that Bahh is more than just a mid-card comedy act when he wants to be. This carried over from his surprise show-stealer with Austin Aries.
The cameraman caught up with Moose and Eddie Edwards who brawled to the rooftop of the Melrose Ballroom. Impact decided to go with the more-practical shaky cam instead of the cinematic cam with this one. Josh said âMoose has Kennyâ when Moose used the kendo stick to beat up Edwards. Moose yelled âtime to fly Eddieâ as he tried to toss Eddie like a lawn dart off the roof, I guess? Eddie escaped but ran right into a step ladder that Moose held up. Moose then started to choke Edwards against the roof railing as Eddie cried and reached out to âKennyâ. Moose said Kenny canât save Eddie now. Eddie clawed at Mooseâs eyes so he could get his Kendo stick. After being hit a few times Moose closed the door on Eddie and Eddie cried because he couldnât get past the door (for some reason Eddie didnât push the one-way handle that you could obviously see on the door, so it wasnât locked). Eddie acted crazy with his mouth openâŚ
Josh Mathews introduced this weekâs Global Wrestling Network match of the week which was a match on TNA Impact in 2008 between four WWE guys. It was Sting vs. Kevin Nash vs. AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe. I think Joe won via submission? Two more WWE guys, Booker T and Kurt Angle, ran out because TNA matches always need to end with a run-in. Booker T had his red toy belt with him (which Booker has joked about in the same way himself on his podcast). Mike Tenay set this up as the Main Event Mafia vs. The TNA Originals. They only aired like two minutes so this was harmlessâŚ
A Jordynne Grace debut vignette aired that showed Grace training in the gym. It said sheâs coming soonâŚ
Josh Mathews hyped up some of the upcoming matchesâŚ [c]
Josh Mathews recapped the Moose and Eddie Edwards roof brawl and said that we havenât seen from Eddie Edwards since Bound for Glory (which was two weeks ago). The show cut to Eddie Edwards having a heart-to-heart. Alisha Edwards walks in on Eddie and straight up yells at him for no good reason (I actually feel bad for Eddie here). Alisha was yapping and acting extra bitchy (for a lack of a better term). Eddie Edwards shut Alisha up by shoving his face on Alisha and forcing a kiss on her. Eddie then said âyou drive me crazyâ and walked awayâŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: So Alisha is mad at her husband for possibly having a mental problem? Nobody came out of this segment looking better let alone good. Whatâs the goal here? Does Impact not remember the quiet and confused fans in what was a hot crowd after that strange feud with Tommy Dreamer?
Kiera Hogan and Allie made their entrance. Josh Mathews joked about what he could sell his soul for. Josh reminded viewers that Allie is âsoullessâ and her soul is stuck in the âundead realmâ (So Kiera still has a Soul despite Allie and Kiera going through the exact same process?). Su Yung made her entrance and was billed as from âoff the gridââŚ
Johnâs Thoughts: Even Josh and Don canât talk about this âundead realmâ stuff with a straight face. Theyâre treating Lucha Underground and Matt Hardyâs Broken Universe brainchild like theyâre just âgimmicksâ that can be mass produced like a âFakeâ Razor Ramon. What makes this worse is they can
