Unified GFW Knockouts Championship match: Sienna (c) vs Gail Kim
After successfully unifying the GFW and IMPACT Championships at Slammiversary XV, by defeating Rosemary, Sienna raised the bar 2 weeks ago by defeating Rosemary again in a Last Knockout Standing match. But she also infuriated Karen Jarrett with her behaviour and the constant interferences from her cousin KM. Jarrett made the match for Destination X but Sienna’s challenger was revealed to be GFW Hall of Famer Gail Kim. Even if Kim announced she would be retiring by the end of the year, she wants to do it as the Champion.
Ladder match for the GFW X Division Championship: Sonjay Dutt (c) vs. Trevor Lee
Is the man who wears the belt the real Champion? That’s the question this match is going to give us answers on. Ever since Trevor Lee stole the X-Division belt from the real X-Division Champion Sonjay Dutt, the week after Slammiversary XV as Dutt was competing against Caleb Konley, Dutt has been banned by Bruce Prichard from the Impact Zone. Meanwhile Trevor Lee has been wrestling his way the belt around his waist. Two weeks ago, Dutt had to pick up a Mumbai Cat mask to be able to enter the Impact Zone, be able to wrestle and ask for this Ladder match. And the man who will grab the belt will be the real Champion.

Shot vs. shot match: Matt Sydal vs. Bobby Lashley
Matt Sydal wanted a shot for the GFW X-Division Championship, Lashley wanted a shot for the GFW World Heavyweight Championship. Both requested Bruce Prichard who, instead of giving shots to the two wrestlers, made a match for Destination X. The winner will have his title shot. As seen last week, Sydal and Lashley went “Down and Dirty” and literally jumped on each other. In this David vs. Goliath kind of match, the winner could be totally unexpected, the good way or the bad way.
