IMPACT on AXS notes: Gail Kim/Awesome Kong, Rehwoldt ambushes Mickie James

Originally published at IMPACT on AXS notes: Gail Kim/Awesome Kong, Rehwoldt/Mickie James

During IMPACT Wrestling’s ‘Countdown To Glory’ pre-show, Kia Stevens (Awesome Kong) will be inducted into the company’s Hall Of Fame. Fellow Hall Of Famer Gail Kim is doing the honors of inducting Stevens. Stevens will be the eighth individual to be added to the IMPACT Hall Of Fame and is joining the likes of Sting, Kurt Angle, Jeff Jarrett, Earl Hebner, Gail Kim, Abyss and Ken Shamrock.

Heath is scheduled to take on Violent By Design (Eric Young, Joe Doering or Cody Deaner) at Bound For Glory. Heath has attempted to convince former Violent By Design member Rhino to side with him. During their in-ring segment on 10/21, Rhino stopped Deaner from attacking Heath but then proceeded to let all three members of Violent By Design beat Heath down.

Will @Rhyno313 side with his old partner @HEATHXXII or Violent By Design? #IMPACTonAXSTV @TheEricYoung @bigjoedoering @CodyDeaner

Following Mickie James’ win over Savannah Evans, she was approached by her Bound For Glory opponent Deonna Purrazzo. Waiting behind James was Purrazzo’s associate Matt Rehwoldt and he clotheslined Mickie.

.@DeonnaPurrazzo used @DramaKingMatt to get around the no contact clause and leave @MickieJames laying. #IMPACTonAXSTV

The ‘Before The IMPACT’ show is hosted by Jon Burton, Gia Miller and Josh Matthews. Burton received a send-off from Matthews and Miller as he going to be off the show for a period of time. Also on B.T.I., W. Morrissey defeated Jake Something.

A huge thank you to @JonBurton32 for his wonderful work on #BTIonAXSTV! @realjoshmathews @MeanGiaMiller
