For many years, Impact Wrestling has embodied the name of tonight’s pay-per-view event, proving that it is indeed “Hard To Kill.” Defying the skeptics and in spite of its detractors, the company continues to soldier on and deliver shows featuring some of the best talents in the business today. Here are our predictions for tonight’s big event.

Mickie James (c) vs. Deonna Purrazzo – Impact Knockouts Championship Match 


Name Prediction Winner
Bob Kapur Putting the title on Mickie last year may have been a nice nostalgic nod to her legacy with the company. But that fan service was actually a disservice to the broader story, which should have been Deonna being the most dominant female in the business. She’ll regain the gold tonight as the first step back onto that path. Deonna Purrazzo
John Powell While it has been great seeing Mickie James back at the top of her game and Impact, we all know that The Virtuoso is the lynch pin of Impact’s women’s division, elevating it during her time as champion. Deonna Purrazzo



Moose (c) vs. Matt Cardona vs. W. Morrissey –  Impact World Championship Match

Name Prediction Winner
Bob Kapur The feel-good story would see Matt Cardona get some revenge on Moose for causing Cardona to accidentally hit his wife Chelsea Green with a chair. But Cardona still gives off such a midcard aura that him winning would be a step backwards. Morrissey, on the other hand, has been presented as a major deal. I see Cardona getting revenge on Moose, taking him out. But then Morrissey takes out Cardona and steals the pin. W. Morrissey
John Powell With the two big bulls slugging it out, perhaps taking each other out, I can see Cardona seeking through for the biggest win of his career. Matt Cardona



Chelsea Green vs. Jordynne Grace vs. Lady Frost vs. Rachael Ellering vs. Rosemary vs. Tasha Steelz – Inaugural Knockouts Ultimate X Match


Name Prediction Winner
Bob Kapur It will be interesting to see if the Knockouts can step up and deliver the crazy high spots and exciting violence that are the hallmark of Ultimate X matches. Hopefully they do, because if not, this could be a real dud. I could see Savannah Evans helping Steelz to win, and that’s probably the best idea. But I think the company will give the honour of this first-time match to Rosemary in recognition of her tenure with the company. Rosemary
John Powell It would be brilliant to see Chelsea Green also pull out a big win on this show to parallel her husband’s victory. Chelsea Green



Josh Alexander vs. Jonah

Name Prediction Winners
Bob Kapur With Josh having been laid out twice by Jonah, including this past Thursday, it may be expected that Jonah get his comeuppance here. But having him lose a high-profile match this soon doesn’t make sense. I see this one ending inconclusively – say, in the heat of the battle, they both end up shoving the referee resulting in a double-DQ – so that the feud can continue. Neither
John Powell This is a tough one. Josh is the heart and soul of Impact at present. Jonah though needs to establish himself as a massive threat in Impact. I say an undecisive win, possibly a double DQ or countout, to push this feud forward. Neither


The IInspiration (c) vs. The Influence – Impact Knockouts Tag Team Championship Match

Name Prediction Winner
Bob Kapur It’s too soon fr the Iinspiration to lose this one. Losing this one may actually lead to a split between Tenille and Madison, aka an early candidate for the year-end Worst Of awards. The Iinspiration
John Powell The IInspiration has just begun their run in Impact. They aren’t losing yet and this feud seems to have legs so… The IInspiration


Trey Miguel (c) vs. Steve Maclin – Impact X Division Championship Championship Match


Name Prediction Winner
Bob Kapur I still think that Maclin should be in the world title hunt instead of the X-Division title. Despite the “no weight limits” tagline, that division should really be focusing on the smaller high-flyers. I do like the storyline where Maclin continues to get screwed over for the title, and think they continue that. Which is good, because when he does finally explode, that’s gonna be fun. Trey Miguel
John Powell Our readers picks Steve Maclin as the most improved wrestler of 2021 so I am going to go with the fan favourite this time. Steve Maclin


Jonathan Gresham (c) vs. Chris Sabin – ROH World Championship


Name Prediction Winner
Bob Kapur Getting Gresham has got to be seen as a coup for Impact. This could be the match of the night if these two get enough time to showcase what they can do. Unfortunately, because of the timing of Impact’s TV tapings and ROH’s closure, they never got a proper TV build for this one. Because of that, I don’t think it makes sense for Gresham to lose it to Sabin at this time. Maybe later down the road with some more hype. Jonathan Gresham
John Powell Great to see the RoH legacy carrying on but I cannot see Jonathan Gresham dropping the title in Impact when there really isn’t any way to go forward with that rivalry. Jonathan Gresham


Eddie Edwards, Rich Swann, Willie Mack, Heath and Rhino vs. The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson) and Violent By Design (Eric Young, Deaner, and Joe Doering) – 10-man Hardcore War Match


Name Prediction Winners
Bob Kapur Other than Eddie Edwards, Rhino, and maybe Eric Young, I don’t see any of these guys as being willing to truly go hardcore and ramp up the violence to extreme levels. So, to be honest, I’m not too hyped for this one. Hopefully I’m wrong. Eddie’s the only one who’s not involved in one of the feuds that are intersecting in this one, so by all rights he should take the pin. The Good Brothers ((Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson) and Violent By Design (Eric Young, Deaner, and Joe Doering)
 John Powell  This match will be all sorts of crazy and that plays into Violent By Design’s wheelhouse.  The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson) and Violent By Design (Eric Young, Deaner, and Joe Doering)
