About this deal
Dynamite Date: May 28, 2021 Location: Daily’s Place, Jacksonville, Florida Commentators: Excalibur, Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone We have a special Friday show this week due to the NBA Playoffs, which is some bad timing as this is also the go home show for Double Or Nothing.

I drove all the way to London yesterday to watch Everton lose a penalty shoot out to Queens Park Rangers, so I’m just in the BEST mood today.Dusty Rhodes (w/Sapphire) (2-0-1) beats Rick Martel (3-0) via disqualification at 3:37: Once again a Rhodes match is focused on Sapphire as she taunts Martel after the opening bell and screams when he tries to go after her. Tonight on Impact: Josh Alexander relinquishes the X Division Title in preparation for Bound For Glory; Bullet Club’s Hikuleo tries to murder David Finlay IV; Intergender action sees Rohit Raju face Chelsea Green; we find out why Mickie James is in the Impact Zone; and in the pre-show, it’s the rubber match between John Skyler .
