Originally published at

New IMPACT Wrestling on-screen authority figure, Santino Marella, made it official that on the 1/26 program, there is going to be a ‘Golden Six Shooter’ match with the winner facing Josh Alexander for the IMPACT World Championship at No Surrender on 2/24. The participants are Sami Callihan, Moose, Rich Swann, Rhino, Eddie Edwards and Chris Sabin. 

Callihan is in the process of joining The Design (Deaner, Angels & Kon). His first task was passed on ‘Before the IMPACT’ when he delivered a piledriver to Delirious after a tag match against Kon and Angels. Callihan was informed that there will be consequences if he does not win the ‘Golden Six Shooter’.

To start off the show, Bully Ray told Knockouts World Champion Mickie James to exit the ring. This was to set up the six-person tag that saw Mickie, Frankie Kazarian and Jordynne Grace take on Tasha Steelz, Savannah Evans and Bully. There were appearances from both Santino Marella and Ernest ‘The Cat’ Miller during this segment.
