Impact Wrestling will be presenting a two-night event called Emergence on August 18th, Night 1, and August 25th, Night 2. Emergence Night 1 card has been announced and it looks to be a great event. I will preview each match and predict winners for the matches.
Ohhh I can’t wait for this matchup. Here you have an Impact legendary tag team and reigning Impact World Tag Team champions The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) defending their newly won Impact World Tag Team titles against former and dominant Impact Tag champions The North. The MCMG won the Impact tag titles from The North in a great tag team match and they are looking to successfully defend the tag titles against them in the rematch to put them in the back of the line. MCMG has a lot to prove. Their victory against The North wasn’t a fluke.
They are arguably the best tag team in the world. They are more than motivated to show the world they still got it. As for The North, their Impact tag title run was the best in the history of Impact wrestling. The North beat down every single team you can think of that was apart of the Impact roster. Now they are saying the reason why they lost to the MCMG was that they weren’t 100% and defending the Impact tag titles for over the past year took its toll on them. Given that they have a few weeks of rest. The North will try to once again become Impact World Tag Team champions.
My Prediction – The Motor City Machine Guns will come away with the victory against The North in a great match. Two of the best tag teams in the world will give the fans an absolute great battle.
This match between Good Brothers and Ace and Fulton will be a brawl. These two teams just don’t like each other. So much bad blood. Good Brothers made their debut at Slammiversary and greeted Ace & Fulton with their fist and attacks after they were beating down newly crowed Impact World Champion Eddie Edwards for pinning Ace for that title. After that night things got more heated between the two teams.
Ace & Fulton getting Gallows arrested for accidentally hitting a cop then attacking Anderson backstage in a two on one attack. Ace & Fulton have been playing mind games with Good Brothers ever since what happened at Slammiversary. Good Brothers want nothing more than revenge and to kick some ass. Ace & Fulton won’t be easy to defeat as Ace & Fulton look to defeat Good Brothers so they can go back to what the prize I believe Ace wants. To be Impact World Champion.
My Prediction – I’m going with Good Brothers to get the victory over Ace & Fulton. This match won’t be pretty at all since there will be a lot of emotions in this match. Good Brothers are one of the best tag teams in the last decade winning tag titles all over the world. Because of that and that emotion for revenge. That for me gives Good Brothers the edge for this match.
Moose has been holding the Impact World Heavyweight Title has been defending it against any TNA legend. This match came about when backstage The Rascalz were talking and Trey Miguel was wearing a Suicide mask. Moose saw that Wentz was wearing an EC3 jacket and got mad. Made the match with Suicide not knowing it was Trey Miguel in that mask. There has not much build to this match. This is just more of Moose just adding to his claim that he is the best in the world and his the top title in Impact.
My Prediction – I have to go with Moose to win this match Miguel will give Moose everything he can handle. Moose is on a roll right now and unfortunately, Miguel will just be the latest victim. Moose will look to his eventual showdown with EC3 for the TNA World Heavyweight title. Hopefully for Bound For Glory.
What we have here is an exciting three-way dance for the X-Division title. Current champion Chris Bey is looking to continue the great momentum he has gotten and successfully defends his X-Division title for the 2nd time. Bey though has two talent targets coming after him. TJP got a victory over him in a tag match by making him submit. TJP is a dangerous threat to Bey for the X-Division title. Then you have Rohit Raju who has tried to be buddy-buddy with Chris Bey but we know what his attention is. He will get that chance to win the X-Division title. I feel like Raju is the 3rd wheel in this match but is very dangerous can’t take him lightly. He can very well become X-Division champ.
My Prediction – I believe this match will be fast-paced and very fun to watch. I think Chris Bey comes up victorious pinning Rohit Raju keeping his feud with TJP going. I think Chris Bey and TJP could feud into Bound For Glory. What i really want honestly is a Ultimate X match with Bey and TJP in it if they don’t do a one on one match at Bound For Glory.
What will the Impact World champion Eddie Edwards have in store for Emergence Night 1? Will he be defending his Impact title. Edwards has been wanting to fight Eric Young for what he has done to Rich Swann at Slammiversary and now Willie Mack at this past Impact show. Do we get to see an Eddie Edwards/Eric Young match or a just a brawl?
What will happen at Wrestle House? With Wrestle House you never know what can happen with a group full of people who are different in many ways. One thing that is guaranteed is that we will be getting a Kylie Rae vs Taya Valkyrie. A case of Kylie Rae wanting to get out of the Wrestle House because she is the #1 Knockout title contender and she is wanting that shot to be champion. Taya who only cares about her and only her has been irritating people in the Wrestle House with her me me me attitude. This should be a good match. I’m going with Kylie Rae to get the victory.
