Hard to Kill Results – Old School Rules 6-Man Match

With the pre-show in the record books and the opening match done, Impact Wrestling's Hard to Kill PPV is in full swing, as is Bleeding Cool's live coverage of the show. I'm Jude Terror, batting cleanup in the coverage lineup tonight, and don't think I didn't see you talking trash, "Chadster." Let me tell you something: you're nuts if you think you could get El Presidente fired. That guy is a god damn hero and he's worth ten of you, Chadster.

Anyway, 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 3

In a video purportedly filmed earlier today, Kenny Omega and the Good Brothers bully the doorman as they arrive at Skyway Studios. Then it's time for another match.


Tommy Dreamer, Rhino, and Cousin Jake vs. Eric Young, Joe Doering, and Deaner

Eric Young's group has a new name. Violent but Deadly? Something like that.

This is an Old School Rules six-man tag which means there's no rules, like ECW, which means all six men fight at the same time and anything goes. Dreamer and Rhino are long past their prime but I have a soft spot for them due to my love of old school ECW. Plus, this kind of match is the perfect way to play to their strengths. Also, somehow, Joe Doering looks like he's twenty years older than both Dreamer and Rhino, but he's ten years younger than Dreamer. Even with thumbtacks, it's a middle-of-the-road hardcore match. Young pins Cousin Jake with a piledriver.

Winners: Silent But Deadly


Backstage Crap

Rich Swann, Chris Sabin, and Moose hang out in a locker room together. Rich Swann is skeptical of hanging out with Moose because Moose murderd Willie Mack. So how were they fistbumping in the opening video promo? Moose says in his NFL career he didn't get along with guys but when it came time to act like a team he was loyal. He says he'll defend Impact Wrestling. Swann agrees. They all get naked.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
