Originally published at IMPACT on AXS notes: Brian Myers to challenge for World Title, Melina

Closing out the 8/12 edition of IMPACT on AXS was a Battle Royal to determine the next challenger to the IMPACT World Championship. The final sequence of the match saw Myers dump both Chris Sabin and Moose over the top rope as they were fighting for leverage. Myers is getting his shot at the Emergence show on August 20th.

The current IMPACT World Champion Kenny Omega is defending the title against Christian Cage in the opening match of AEW Rampage on 8/13.

On 8/19, Melina is making her IMPACT in-ring debut ahead of challenging Deonna Purrazzo for the Knockouts Championship at NWA EmPower.

After being ambushed by her former partner Tasha Steelz and Savannah Evans last week, Kiera Hogan had an in-ring segment and she called out both Evans and Steelz. She was instead met by Su Yung and Kimber Lee who dragged Kiera out of camera’s view. Kiera was present in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on 8/11 and she’ll be a part of the AEW Dark: Elevation show this coming Monday.
