    Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 - August 12, 2022

    Who will conquer all obstacles and emerge victorious? Find out when IMPACT Wrestling presents Emergence LIVE August 12th on IMPACT Plus and YouTube for IMPACT Ultimate Insiders from Cicero Stadium in Chicago, IL! Tickets are on-sale now at Eventbrite.com.



    After joining forces with Josh Alexander to defeat Violent By Design in six-man tag team action, the Motor City Machine Guns set their sights on the IMPACT World Title – but only one could earn the right to challenge the “Walking Weapon”. In a blockbuster main event on IMPACT!, the Motor City Machine Guns went one-on-one as Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley tore the house down. When the dust had settled, it was Shelley who forced Sabin to submit to the Border City Stretch, earning him his first-ever opportunity at the IMPACT World Title. The stage is now set for Alexander vs Shelley in Chicago! Will Alexander continue to lead IMPACT Wrestling into the future or will Shelley capitalize on his golden opportunity and become IMPACT World Champion for the very first time?



    At Against All Odds, Jordynne Grace remained at the top of the mountain when she defeated former Knockouts World Champion Tasha Steelz one-on-one. But just days later on IMPACT!, Thicc Mama Pump’s next challenger was revealed as Mia Yim defeated Deonna Purrazzo in an epic #1 Contenders main event. After the match, Grace shook hands with “The HBIC” as a sign of respect heading into their monumental title showdown. Mia Yim has made it no secret since returning to IMPACT Wrestling that she has her sights set on recapturing the gold she once held. But if there’s one thing we known about Jordynne Grace, it’s that she won’t go down with a fight. Grace vs Yim, only one can leave Chicago with the Knockouts World Title around their waist!



    In a blockbuster tag team match on IMPACT!, Deonna Purrazzo and Chelsea Green, now known as VXT, defeated the team of Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace and Mia Yim. After Purrazzo pinned the current #1 Contender for the Knockouts World Title, she demanded that she be added to the Knockouts World Title match at Emergence. Instead, IMPACT official Gail Kim granted her and Chelsea Green a Knockouts World Tag Team Title opportunity against Taya Valkyrie and Rosemary! With Havok‘s alter-ego “Jessicka” by their side, will the reigning champs remain at the top of the mountain? Or will VXT prove that their longtime friendship is the key to even more success in the Knockouts division?



    Emergence will play host to a Lucha Libre AAA Attraction match as Bandido and Rey Horus compete in an IMPACT ring for the first time ever. What will happen when two of the world’s top Luchadores collide in Chicago? One thing is for certain, you won’t want to miss a moment of the action!



    Ever since Honor No More arrived on the scene, they have made one thing abundantly clear – they despise IMPACT Wrestling. While trying to reshape the company in their vision, they quickly found themselves on the bad side of several IMPACT stars, including those in Bullet Club. Recently on IMPACT!, Honor No More’s leader, Eddie Edwards, confronted IMPACT Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore and demanded that Matt Taven and Mike Bennett receive an IMPACT World Tag Team Title opportunity against The Good Brothers. After taking the show hostage, D’Amore granted them their wish under one condition. At Emergence, Eddie Edwards, Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, PCO and Vincent will collide with The Good Brothers, Ace Austin, Chris Bey and Hikuleo in a massive five on five showdown. If Honor No More wins, they will receive their IMPACT World Tag Team Title shot – but if they lose, they must disband! Who will be victorious in the final battle for faction supremacy?



    At Against All Odds, Steve Maclin cost Sami Callihan his Clockwork Orange House of Fun match against Moose when he disguised himself as a cameraman and delivered a brutal blindside assault to the “Death Machine”. Since then, Moose and Maclin have denied all allegations that they’re in an alliance – and after Moose and Maclin left the ring separately following another attack on Callihan, the mystery continues. But now Callihan has a chance at revenge as he goes one-on-one with Maclin in a heated grudge match at Emergence!



    Joe Doering and Deaner look to get back into the good graces of Violent By Design‘s leader, Eric Young, when they face off against Chris Sabin and KUSHIDA at Emergence. After coming up short against the Motor City Machine Guns, Doering and Deaner continued their assault after the match but there to make the save was the Guns’ longtime ally, KUSHIDA! With Alex Shelley set to challenge for the IMPACT World Title, Sabin and KUSHIDA will join forces in an attempt to fend off Violent By Design once and for all.



    After missing his scheduled return at Slammiversary due to injury, the high-flying Jack Evans is set to challenge for the X-Division Title at Emergence – but who will be the champion? On the final IMPACT! before the big event, current X-Division Champion Mike Bailey will defend his title against New Japan Pro-Wrestling veteran, Rocky Romero. The winner of that match will square off against Evans just 24 hours later in Chicago!

    Stay tuned for more Emergence news and match announcements

    This is shaping shaping to be a stellar card.

    The AAA match and in particular the main event I'm excited for. The women's matches should also be good.

    Bailey vs Evans should be a spectacle.

    I caught about half of Speedball/Evans. Seemed like a good match, bit of an odd ending though with Speedball landing on his shoulder from that nutty German but then he blew it off to just run through his big moves.

    Welp! I completely missed the memo and thought it was on Saturday rather than Friday. I'll be keeping an eye on the comments though.

    Sami Callihan has evolved into a straight up goblin.

    No Joke Maclin should be pushed to the main event scene and this feud with Sami is fantastic

    EC do you think you could do a Maclin banner with that Punisher Skull logo?

    I really haven’t enjoyed back to back plunder. Hopefully Shelley/Alexander justifies me turning the PPV on.

    This show is starting to feel that I'm slogging through a bunch of crap to get to the diamond that I am anticipating this Main Event is going to be.

    I'll put it on the docket for sure.

    I get where you're coming from, Ed. I like that Impact doesn't skimp on the hardcore action, but doing them back to back in the way they did kind of waters it down a little.

    So far, Shelley vs. Alexander is all I'd hoped for. No doubt they're gonna build up to some great shit in the late stages of the match.

    Loving it so far. Josh lost his headgear early in this one.
