Next week’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling on AXS is going to be a best-of-2022 show. Year-end awards will be given throughout the program. 

The Knockouts Tag Team Championships remained in the Death Dollz’s possession. Rosemary and Jessicka successfully defended against Deonna Purrazzo and Gisele Shaw. 

On ‘Before the IMPACT’, KiLynn King made her IMPACT Wrestling in-ring debut in a singles loss to Taylor Wilde.

During an in-ring segment involving Sami Callihan and The Design (Deaner, Angels & Kon), Callihan proposed the idea of joining the group but ended up being beaten down.

The storyline between ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey and Kenny King continued as King sent in a video from Mexico as he was competing for CMLL. He told Bailey to keep doing what he’s doing in Florida which was the site of the IMPACT TV tapings earlier this month. 

In the main event, Hard To Kill opponents, Mickie James and Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace, defeated Tasha Steelz and Savannah Evans. James and Grace had a break down post-match.

There was a brawl between Steve Maclin and Rich Swann that resulted in their singles match being thrown out. Maclin put his hands on a referee and multiple security guards came out to separate Maclin and Swann.
