Tossing Salt Presents:
Impact Wrestling: Victory Road 2019
Thoughts & Predictions
September 14, 2019
Coming up later today, Saturday, September 14, 2019, streaming live from Oklahoma on Impact Plus, FITE.tv and pay-per-view, is Impact Wrestling’s annual event, “Victory Road”. Of course, that means it’s time to take a look at the matches that have been announced and do some of that big time prediction and picking out who takes that trip to the pay window that we do. Yeppers, I’m breaking out the Sister Cleo outfit and going crazy. So let’s pull out the cards and do this. And away we go…
A quick note here. Unfortunately, I’m not as knowledgable of some of the Impact stars as I should be and have to depend upon YouTube and Wikipedia for information to help make a smart choice and decision. That’ll probably change once Impact moves to their new home at AXS TV, but for now, Impact is more of of casual interest than anything else. So now you know. Let’s do this…
Moose vs. Stephan Bonnar
Moose is getting primed and ready to take on the returning Ken Shamrock at the next big Impact PPV event so I doubt he’s as focused on this match and Bonnar as he should be. The Shamrock match is the big one and this one, not so much. I think we’ll see Shamrock get involved and cause a few problems for Rocket J. Squirrel’s best buddy and I think that Bonnar will take advantage and despite getting a butt whipping for most of the match, one distraction is all it takes.
Winner: Stephan Bonnar
Taya Valkyrie (c) vs. Rosemary – IMPACT Knockouts Championship
Both of these ladies, I’m very aware of and have much respect for. This might be the dark horse match of the night and steal the show. I don’t think we’ll be seeing a title change here though. I think that Rosemary will come close, but not be able to pull off the upset. Look for Taya to retain.
Winner and STILL Impact Knockouts Champion: Taya Valkyrie
The North (Ethan Page & Josh Alexander) vs. Rich Swann & Fuego Del Sol
A good, fast paced match that should probably open the show. These guys can go… all of them. Swann is the biggest name, but the other three are just as good and can really hold their own. Hard to make a call here, but I’ll just say “The North”. No reason, but I’m from Ohio. What more reasons do I need?
Winners: The North (Ethan Page & Josh Alexander)
TJP vs. Michael Elgin
I like TJP and have since the first time I saw him perform, but Michael Elgin is definitely one of the best performers out there and I think this match is his to win or lose. I think that he’ll win and win clean.
Winner: Michael Elgin
Sami Callihan vs. Hawk
Not sure who “Hawk” is, but I’m sure it’s not the one-time Road Warrior, nor do I think it’s the partner of Dove from DC Comics and the Titans. It’s just a guy with a name and he’s facing Sami Callihan. No contest here. Callihan wins.
Winner: Sami Callihan
Eddie Edwards vs. Rohit Raju
I know who Eddie Edwards is, but who is this Rohit Raju? What am I missing here? I could and probably should look it up and get the lowdown, but it’s Eddie facing a guy who’s name sounds like a can of noodles and meat from Chef-Boy-R-Dee. Edwards is taking this one with a pin after about ten minutes.
Winner: Eddie Edwards
Kiera Hogan vs. Desiderata
People named Hogan don’t lose, brutha. I’m sure that Kiera says her prayers, takes her vitamins and loves to run wild. And Desiderata is going down, brutha! Yeppers, that’s what I said.
Winner: Kiera Hogan
And there you go. My thanks for reading. So am I right or wrong? Let me know your thoughts and who you think will win, lose and walk that aisle. Questions, comments and any thoughts about anything is welcome and appreciated. And with that, I’m out of here. Have a great one and I’ll see you soon. Take care.
