Impact Emergence notes: The Rascalz win Tag Team titles, Steve Maclin returns

November 11, 2023 0 By JohnValbyNation

New Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions were crowned at Sunday's Emergence in Toronto as The Rascalz became titleholders for the first time with their win over Subculture.

The end came when Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel isolated Flash Morgan Webster, finishing him off with a double stomp into a burning hammer to pick up the win and their first ever run with the titles.

Wentz and Miguel earned the opportunity against Webster and Mark Andrews by winning the recent four-team Tag Team title eliminator tournament, defeating Rich Swann & Sami Callihan in the finals.

The two have a history with former champions ABC (Chris Bey & Ace Austin) after both costing them the titles at Slammiversary and then in their subsequent rematch with Subculture, setting up a potential battle in the future.

Webster and Andrews held the gold for over 40 days, defending the titles four times but just once in Impact itself.

Steve Maclin made his return to Impact Sunday after being away for several months due to injury.

Maclin made a surprise appearance to attack Josh Alexander on the ramp during an eight-man tag team match, going after his previously injured left arm. The two had a brawl on the stage before being separated. Alexander then finished the rest of the match, eventually getting pinned by Moose after Impact World Champion Alex Shelley walked out on his team.

Maclin and Alexander were supposed to wrestle for Alexander's-then Impact World title at April's Rebellion until he had to withdraw. Maclin defeated KUSHIDA for the vacant title before losing it to Shelley in June. He was then inured during the company's mini-tour of Australia, putting him on the injured list.


In the night's other title matches, Knockouts Champion Trinity retained her title with a submission win over Deonna Purrazzo in the main event while Digital Media Champion Kenny King defeated Johnny Swinger to retain, and Knockouts Tag Team Champions MK Ultra (Masha Slamovich & Killer Kelly) retained in a four-way that included The Death Dollz, Jody Threat & KiLynn King, and Gisele Shaw & Savannah Evans.
