Several Title Changes At IMPACT Slammiversary 2022
Plenty of new champions crowned at IMPACT Slammiversary
On what was the promotion's 20th anniversary, IMPACT Slammiversary proved to be a bad night for reigning champions as only Digital Media Champion Rich Swann and IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander managed to retain their titles, with every other belt in the promotion changing hands.
The pay-per-view immediately kicked off with a title change as 'Speedball' Mike Bailey overcame champion Ace Austin, Alex Zayne, Trey Miguel, Kenny King, and Andrew Everett in an Ultimate X Match to capture the X-Division Championship. That match was then followed by the second title change of the evening as Rosemary and Taya Valkyrie defeated The Influence's Madison Rayne and Tenille Dashwood to win the Knockouts World Tag Team Titles.
The Good Brothers later became three-time IMPACT World Tag Team Champions as they vanquished The Briscoes following a super Gun Stun and Magic Killer. The Good Brothers last held tag team gold in IMPACT in March 2022, before they lost the titles to Violent By Design who then dropped the belts to The Briscoes.
History was made during the final title change of Slammiversary as Jordynne Grace defeated Tasha Steelz, Mia Yim, Chelsea Green, and Deonna Purrazzo in the first-ever Queen Of The Mountain Match to begin her second reign as Knockouts World Champion.
It initially appeared that either Chelsea Green or Deonna Purrazzo would win the gold but they were sent crashing through two tables on the outside after Mia Yim pushed over a ladder. The HBIC was then sent to the penalty box, though, after she was pinned by Tasha Steelz and Jordynne Grace at the same time and Thick Momma Pump decked Steelz with a Muscle Buster soon after to leave her as the last woman standing.
All that was left for Gace was to scale the ladder and she did so to capture the gold.
