IMPACT on AXS notes: Josh Alexander's farewell, Steve Maclin, Gisele Shaw's in-ring debut

Originally published at IMPACT on AXS notes: Josh Alexander's farewell, Steve Maclin

Following his verbal exchange with Scott D’Amore, Josh Alexander tweeted out his farewell to IMPACT Wrestling and thanked them for the past three years. During the segment between Alexander and D’Amore, Alexander demanded a rematch for the IMPACT World Title and stated that if he does not get the match, D’Amore could be looking at pro wrestling’s next free agent. D’Amore then opted to remove Alexander from Team IMPACT at No Surrender and he was ‘sent home’.

I have so much love for the entire Impact team & Impact fans.

I’ve been lucky enough to work w/ some of the GOATs. Been pushed to improve my weakness’. Impact gave me the confidence to know I can be an elite performer. I’m so grateful for these 3yrs.

Thank you!

Taking the place of Alexander in the Team IMPACT versus Honor No More match at No Surrender is Steve Maclin. Maclin was given the green light to join the team after he stopped Matt Taven and Mike Bennett from attacking Ring of Honor ambassador Cary Silkin at ringside. Maclin will join Chris Sabin, Eddie Edwards, Rich Swann and Rhino to take on Honor No More (Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, PCO, Kenny King & Vincent).

Moments ago @rohcary looked to be in trouble when Honor No More had him cornered @SteveMaclin made the save and is now part of #TeamIMPACT!#IMPACTonAXSTV

Lady Frost defeated Alisha on ‘Before The Impact’ and as she was recovering in the ring, Gisele Shaw appeared and the two talents stared one another down. Shaw is making her IMPACT in-ring debut on 2/17.

ROH Women’s World Champion and AAA Reina de Reinas Champion Deonna Purrazzo hosted an open challenge and her titles were up from grabs. Answering the call was Santana Garrett, who last competed for IMPACT in 2017 prior to tonight’s program. Purrazzo bested Garrett to retain her titles.

Below is a video of the segment involving Bullet Club (Jay White, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa & Chris Bey), Violent By Design (Eric Young, Joe Doering & Deaner) along with The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson):

Things are heating up between VBD and The Bullet Club and The Good Brothers were not far behind! @JayWhiteNZ, @Tama_Tonga, @TangaloaNJPW @DashingChrisBey @TheEricYoung @CodyDeaner @TheEricYoung @bigjoedoering @The_BigLG @MachineGunKA #IMPACTonAXSTV

As Gia Miller was interviewing Bhupinder Gujjar, Raj Singh attempted to engage with Bhupinder but Bhupinder walked away from him for the second consecutive week.
