All The Results From IMPACT No Surrender 2023
IMPACT Wrestling hosted their 16th No Surrender event on February 24, 2023, marking their second PPV of the year thus far. It may not have been the most noteworthy show, with no title changes or anything major happening, but as is commonplace with IMPACT Wrestling in recent times, it was a good quality event from top to bottom.
Let’s take a look at a rundown of IMPACT No Surrender below:
Gisele Shaw def. Deonna Purrazzo - Countdown To No Surrender
Following a brief back and forth, Purrazzo took control early on with a rana, kick, and a standing moonsault. Big moves were traded, with Purrazzo coming close to a victory with an armbar. The odds were stacked against her though as Savannah Evans appeared, helping Shaw to victory as she nailed Purrazzo with a running knee strike, signalling an alliance with Evans.
Jonathan Gresham def. Mike Bailey - Countdown To No Surrender
Gresham and Bailey clashed in a strong pre-show encounter here, as they traded a lot of impressive offence. Bailey managed to rally with an array of kicks, knocking back Gresham several times before he managed to even things up when the two traded chops. Gresham targeted Bailey’s leg, which he was favouring early on, and managed to steal a win with a victory roll amidst some promising offence from Bailey.
Frankie Kazarian def. Kon
Frankie Kazarian was on the back foot for much of this match, as Kon laid him out with clotheslines, forearms, and a spinebuster. Kazarian fought from below, working his way back into the match with a reverse DDT. The end of the match saw shenanigans and interference from Kon’s buddies, but a missed diving headbutt allowed Kazarian to hit a Slingshot Cutter for the win.
The Death Dollz (c) def. The Hex - IMPACT Knockouts World Tag Team Championships
After some audio issues during the Death Dollz’ entrance, things only improved as these four women put in a solid tag team contest. It was very back and forth, with notable moments seeing Jessicka hit some Bionic Elbows, Taya Valkyrie hit a Blue Thunder Bomb, and Allysin Kay nailing her opponent with a Samoan Drop. The Hex displayed some great heel tactics, playing mind games and mocking their opponents, but it was all for nought as Marti Belle fell to a Sick Driver to end the match.
Joe Hendry (c) def. Moose - IMPACT Digital Media Championship
Joe Hendry and Moose got creative in this Dot Combat Match, as they incorporated some very unique weapons such as a keyboard, SEGA Dreamcast, Fisher-Price remote control car, a VR headset, and some keyboard keys to play the role of thumbtacks. This had a good mixture of fun and violence, with a notable moment seeing Moose engrossed in virtual reality, leading to his opponent getting in offence. Hendry managed to get the roll-up for the win to retain his Digital Media Title.
Bully Ray & Brawl On Busted Open Live
Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer met in the ring for a special edition of Busted Open in which they intended to mend the bridges in their friendship, only for Bully Ray to throw coffee in the face of Dreamer, and smash the pot over his face.
Steve Maclin def. Bryan Myers, Heath, & PCO - #1 Contender Impact World Title
As expected, this was a fast-paced clash between some talented competitors who were all looking for an opportunity to break out into the main event. The ending sequence saw an array of big moves, finishers, and interference from Eddie Edwards to cost PCO the match. It was Maclin who stood tall, hitting a KIA on Heath.
Bullet Club def. Time Machine - Trios Match
KENTA and KUSHIDA kicked things off in a much-anticipated showdown, and they displayed some great technical and physical back and forth. From there, this descended into all-out trios fun, with big sequences, hard-hitting moves, and an electric pace. It seemed as though Time Machine had things wrapped up when they hit a triple Dream Sequence and a Skull & Bones, but Ace Austin managed to sneak a victory with a backroll against the run of the play.
Mickie James (c) def. Masha Slamovich - IMPACT Knockouts World Championship
Mickie James extended her career once again by successfully beating Masha Slamovich. Slamovich was brutal and sadistic at times, licking James’ face and trying to break James’ arm with a Kimura. James managed to fight back, getting painfully close to winning with a Mick Kick. However, James would get a stroke of luck as amidst her opponent’s dominance in the match, a failed monkey flip led to James scoring the win.
Josh Alexander (c) def. Rich Swann - IMPACT World Championship
The main event of the evening saw Josh Alexander outlast Rich Swann to retain his gold and stand tall. It was a big-time main event, lasting for nearly half an hour, and closed the show out with a bang. Swann managed to avoid the C4 Spike for much of the match, but Alexander’s attempts were too much as Swann eventually fell victim to the finisher, though it did come after a big tombstone too.
