This week’s IMPACT Wrestling was bound to be a special one. But on Wednesday night, we got some big news regarding a special appearance. Not only is this Tuesday’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling the go-home show before Final Resolution, but we will also hear from the new AEW World Champion, Kenny Omega. What’s the All Elite Wrestling Champion doing in IMPACT Wrestling? Find that out and more as we Brace For IMPACT for 12/08/20
Brian Myers vs TJP
IMPACT! Wrestling prides themselves on their ability to present new, fresh, exciting matches. To this end, we will see “The Most Professional Wrestler” Brian Myers face TJP for the first time ever on this week’s IMPACT! Wrestling. Myers is out to prove he belongs in IMPACT! Wrestling following lackluster series against Tommy Dreamer and Willie Mack respectively. After victories against Swoggle and Crazzy Steve, things seem to be turning up for Myers, but can he defeat someone of TJP’s caliber? On the other hand, TJP’s been having a rough time lately. Despite his impressive credentials, TJP has been coming up short in the big matches. He’s had three opportunities to capture the X-Division championship this year, and he’s lost every time. In his last title match, he lost the right to challenge Rohit Raju again. Is this match against Myers the beginning of his march towards the IMPACT World Championship?
Deonna Purrazzo & Kimber Lee vs Taya Valkyrie & Rosemary
This week on IMPACT! Wrestling, the first round of the Knockouts Tag Team Championship Tournament comes to a close. Reigning Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo teams with her protege Kimber Lee in a contest against ‘Wera Loca” Taya Valkyrie and her partner in crime Rosemary. These two teams are about even when it comes to in-ring experience as a duo. However, Su Yung currently has her attention on Purrazzo, the woman who recaptured the Knockouts Championship at Turning Point last month. Yung is known for her supernatural-tinted mind games and denying Purrazzo the opportunity to hold a second belt would practically guarantee another match. Will Su Yung get involved, or will she wait for a more opportune moment?

Cody Deaner w/Cousin Jake vs Eric Young w/Joe Doering
Last week on IMPACT! Wrestling, Joe Doering and Eric Young continued their campaign of terror. The devious duo made their entrance during the match between Cody Deaner and Johnny Swinger. Doering brutalized Swinger, while Eric Young focused his assault on Deaner. After Young laid out Deaner with his piledriver, he took to the mic with another unhinged tirade about the world and the ownership thereof. Cody Deaner joins a long list of IMPACT! Wrestling talent who’ve been assaulted by Young and Doering. This week, however, he sets himself apart from that pack as he has challenged Eric Young to a one-on-one match. Cody Deaner is out for revenge and he’s brought Cousin Jake to even the odds. Has the World Class Maniac just been playing the numbers game, or will the former world champion takedown Cody Deaner by himself?
Josh Alexander w/Ethan Page vs Chris Sabin w/Alex Shelley
At Bound For Glory on October 24th, The North jumped The Motor City Machine Guns before their scheduled 4 corners match. Josh Alexander of The North put Alex Shelley of MCMG into a tiger driver, slamming him head-first onto the stage. The resulting injury put Alex Shelley out of action for nearly 2 months. The North captured the tag team championships that night, and The Motor City Machine Guns are contractually owed a rematch. However, in the time Shelley has been gone, we’ve seen new IMPACT Tag Team Champions crowned. On Saturday night at Final Resolution, Ethan Page will face Doc Gallows for the right to challenge for the IMPACT Tag Team Championships. Tonight, however, Chris Sabin of MCMG is out to avenge the attack on Alex Shelley. Will Sabin emerge victorious, and if so, will he leave Ethan Page by himself for his match on Saturday night?

Kenny Omega Speaks
As if the go-home show before Final Resolution wasn’t exciting enough, we received some big news on Wednesday night. At AEW: Winter Is Coming, Kenny Omega faced Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship in the main event. Omega merged from that match victorious, following interference by IMPACT Wrestling executive Don Callis. As the dastardly duo fled the building, Alex Marvez caught up to them. Alex asked what was going on, only for Callis to say we’d find out this Tuesday night. Shortly after, the news broke that AEW and IMPACT! Wrestling had reached a partnership agreement. As an executive VP of All Elite Wrestling, Kenny Omega is likely to elaborate on what this agreement entails on Tuesday’s IMPACT! Wrestling.
