It all comes down to this. Welcome to Bleeding Cool's live coverage of Impact Wrestling's Hard to Kill PPV. I'm Jude Terror, and I just want to say, regardless of what my stupid colleague "Chadster" says, lots of people, including myself, believe in El Presidente. And I hope he's doing okay and finds great success in his mission at the My Pillow factory. Now, on to the recap.
But before we find out what happens, Bleeding Cool has insisted I post this SEO-optimized keyword-rich boilerplate text about Hard to Kill so they can get more clicks and make more money. And who am I to begrudge them that? Here it is:
Hard to Kill, the first PPV event of 2021 from Impact Wrestling, also features the culmination of the first part of the company's crossover with AEW. AEW Champion Kenny Omega will team with Impact Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers to face Impact Champion Rich Swann, TNA Champion Moose, and Chris Sabin of the Motor City Machine Guns in the main event. Hard to Kill also features a Knockouts Championship match, with Deonna Purrazzo defending against Taya Valkyrie, a Triple Threat for the X-Division Championship between Chris Bey, Rohit Raju, and champion Manik, as well as the finals of the Knockouts Tag Team Championship tournament, with Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz facing Havok and Neveah. In non-title competition at Hard to Kill, Eric Young, Joe Doering, and Deaner face Tommy Dreamer, Cousin Jake, and Rhino in an Old School Rules match, Eddie Edwards takes on Sami Callihan in Barbed Wire Massacre, Ethan Page faces The Karate Man (who is also Ethan Page), and Rosemary and Crazzy Steve take on Tenille Dashwood & Kaleb with a K. Finally, on the pre-show, Brian Myers faces Josh Alexander. Hard to Kill emanates as usual from Skyway Studios in Nashville and can be purchased on traditional PPV or on the Fite TV app.
Impact Wrestling Hard to Kill PPV Results Part 9
The match looks like the National Guard is trying to block Trumpbronies from overrunning it. One side has a chain link fence covered in barbed wire. There's barbed wire around the ropes, on weapons, and attacked to various planks perfect to slam people through. This is going to be brutal.
Eddie Edwards vs. Sami Callihan – Barbed Wire Mayhem
Within a minute, Sami Callihan is busted open. Within five minutes, Edwards has been slammed through a barbed-wire-covered sheet of plywood and is also bleeding. It only gets worse from there. Beatings with a barbed-wire covered chair. Piledrivers through barbed wire-covered plywood suspended on two steel chairs. Sami even tries to murder Eddie with the baseball bat again (covered in barbed wire, of course), but Eddie kicks him in the balls and hits a Boston Knee Party. To give you an idea how this match is going, Sami kicks out of that at one. But an Emerald Flowsion on the barbed wire plywood is enough to keep SAmi down.
Winner: Eddie Edwards
Well, it could have gone worse.
After the match, we get a video advertising Impact's next PPV, Rebellion, coming in April.
