Three cheers for Jazz. Impression performed that scene effectively. They allowed her to say her piece with respect and honor. It was good to see Jazz exit on prime in a fast spur-of-the-moment match earlier than her official retirement. The locker room applauding Jazz is a kind of touches that enhanced the emotion.
Jazz’s option to be Jordynne Grace’s associate is an entire thriller to me, however I might like to see Thunder Rosa strolling via the forbidden door. Jazz and Rosa have the connection of operating a wrestling faculty collectively as trainers, with Rodney Mack. If not Rosa, my subsequent guess could be Taylor Wilde. I don’t know if any private connection exists with Jazz, nonetheless, it will put Wilde in a popping place for her return to Impression. Jazz’s stamp of approval may very well be essential for followers that by no means noticed Wilde’s first run within the Impression Zone.
Two closing notes. First, Havok defeated Nevaeh in singles motion throughout the BTI pre-show. This feud deserved to be showcased on the primary program. Because it wasn’t, maybe the feud will not be over.
Second, I obtained a chuckle out of Impression suggesting that John E. Bravo being shot during his wedding to Rosemary has a direct correlation to his unique flip in supporting John Morrison and Taya.
