Impact, Indies, and Insanity: July 22, 2021

IMPACT!  Havok and Rosemary give Fire ‘n’ Flava their Contractually Obligated Rematch(tm)!  David Finlay VI and Juice Robinson are back in town and taking on Ace Austin and Madman Fulton!  Six-person tag action sees Brian Myers, Sam Beale, and Tenille Dashwood face Matt Cardona, Jake Something, and Chelsea Green!  Ultimate X Fallout puts Chris Bey against Rohit Raju!  Petey Williams and Trey Miguel team up for a showcase match on the pre-show!  And what are Jay White and Mickie James doing in the Impact Zone?

(Two different things, clearly, but for some reason the idea of Mickie James in Bullet Club isn’t at all horrible now that I think about it.  If only New Japan had a women’s division.  Bullet Club in STARDOM maybe?)

One big even this INDIES weekend, and we cover it after the jump!

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ — it’s a four-show, two-day celebration of the indies as GCW and friends put on a Homecoming!  Here’s how it looks for those who want to watch:
