Impact Review 20/4/23

Match 1: Time Machine (Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley & KUSHIDA) vs X-Division Champion Trey Miguel, Jonathan Gresham & Mike Bailey

KUSHIDA targets the arm of Miguel as he sets up for the Hoverboard Lock. Sabin hits Bailey with a bulldog, followed by a kick from KUSHIDA. Sabin continues the assaults with a running dropkick. It seems that Miguel, Gresham and Bailey are not on the same page. Bailey creates some much-needed separation with a kick to Shelley but Time Machine are able to quickly regain control with a double team cutter. Sabin dives through the ropes, taking out both Gresham and Bailey on the floor. Gresham hits a springboard Moonsault to KUSHIDA, followed by a German suplex, covers him but only gets a two. Sabin inadvertently kicks Shelley on the apron. Miguel dives to the outside and he collides with Sabin and Shelley. Bailey soars with a springboard Moonsault, wiping out everyone. KUSHIDA locks in the Hoverboard Lock on Miguel but he is able to make it to the bottom rope. Sabin hits Bailey with a top rope German suplex. Miguel and Gresham are arguing over who Bailey should tag into the match. Bailey delivers Ultima Weapon to the back of Sabin. All three members of Time Machine are able to get their offense in on Miguel. Sabin connects with the Cradle Shock, covers him and gets the pin. Time machine picking up the win. A very impressive match from these 6 men. I love the chemistry and I also enjoy the rivals having to team up. Grade A-
