(Note: if wrestling isn’t your thing, tonight has Washington/New England and Philly/Pittsburgh in pre-season football, plus the Yankees and White Sox play a baseball game in Parts Unknown. If you cynically exploit the heck out of it for financial gain, they will come.)
IMPACT — We have a battle royal to see who will face (insert winner from Rampage here) at Emergence! FinJuice faces BeyJay as the Bullet Club grows! Tenille Dashwood faces Taylor Wilde! It’s a Contender’s Elimination thingy as Josh Alexander faces Daivari! And Sam Adonis and Joeasa face off on the pre-show!
