Tossing Salt Presents:
Impact Wrestling Under Siege 2022
Thoughts & Predictions
May 6, 2022
Impact Wrestling returns to Impact+ and FITE.TV tomorrow, Saturday 5/7 with Under Siege 2022 from the Promowest Pavilion at Ovation in Newport, KY. Let’s make a few predictions.
Impact Wrestling Champion Josh Alexander vs. Tomohiro Ishii.
This should be a classic match for the ages and of that, I have no doubt. But it’s way too soon to take the belt off of Alexander and while the match will be excellent, the results are not in doubt.
Winner and STILL Impact Wrestling Champion: Josh Alexander
Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Tasha Steelz vs. Havok.
Tasha Steelz is on a role and doing an excellent job thus far as the Knockouts Champion. Havok is good, but she’s not going to be the new champion anytime soon.
Winner and STILL Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion: Tasha Steelz
Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions Violent by Design vs. Jay and Mark Briscoe.
‘Dem Boys are here to kick some ass, take no prisoners, and make a, dare I say it, Impact! VBD are excellent and a great tag team, but those belts are changing hands.
Winners and NEW Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions: The Briscoes
AAA Reina de Reinas Champion Taya Valkyrie vs. Deonna Purrazzo.
Purrazzo just dropped the ROH Women’s Championship this past week on AEW Dynamite so she’s going to be looking for some kind of redemption. Taya is an amazing talent and just won the AAA title a few weeks ago, so it’s hard to see her losing it this soon. This match could easily go either way and it’s hard to make a choice, so I’m doing it the old fashioned way. Heads for Taya and tails for Deonna. Who wins? Tails.
Winner and NEW AAA Reina de Reinas Champion Deonna Purrazzo.
Bullet Club (Jay White, Chris Bey, and the Good Brothers) vs. Honor No More (Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, Vincent, and Kenny King).
After watching former Bullet Club members AJ Styles & Finn Balordo the “too sweet” sign on RAW last Monday night, I know it’s a sign. The Bullet Club lives again.
Winners: The Bullet Club
Chris Sabin vs. Steve Maclin.
This should be a good match and probably the opener for the show. Both guys are good, but Maclin is, in my opinion, just a little bit better.
Winner: Steve Maclin
Alex Shelley vs. Mike Bailey in a rematch from Multiverse of Matches.
Two more great talents that will probably have one helluva match. It’s a tough call, but I’ll go with Shelley on this one.
Winner: Alex Shelley
Impact Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champion Madison Rayne vs. Gisele Shaw.
Madison Rayne versus Who? I know who Madison is, but I have not a clue about the other woman. Why is one half of the tag team champions wrestling in a singles match? It doesn’t matter why, I guess. Look for Rayne to take home the victory.
Winner: Madison Rayne
