Sami Callihan will have an opportunity to get his hands on IMPACT World Champion Kenny Omega before Slammiversary when Team Dreamer battles Team Callis on IMPACT! After Don Callis was fired as IMPACT Executive Vice President by board-appointed consultant Tommy Dreamer, Callis laid out the challenge for a colossal six-man tag. This Thursday, Omega will team with The Good Brothers to take on Dreamer’s hand-picked team of Callihan, Moose and Chris Sabin. But can Team Dreamer put their personal differences aside in order to fight a common enemy? During this time of uncertainty, there is one thing that can be guaranteed – when these six competitors meet in the squared circle, it will be total and utter chaos!
It’s a dream match of epic proportions as Eddie Edwards goes one-on-one with NJPW legend Satoshi Kojima this Thursday! After having each other’s back in the ongoing war against Violent By Design, Kojima must soon return to New Japan Pro-Wrestling. But before he does, the two friends will compete in a highly-anticipated match built on respect.
As Slammiversary draws near, IMPACT Wrestling’s tag team division continues to heat up. Following a verbal exchange inside Swinger’s Palace, TJP and Fallah Bahh will take on Rich Swann and Willie Mack in tag team action! TJP and Fallah have been on a roll as of late but standing in their way of a potential IMPACT World Tag Team Title opportunity is Rich Swann and Willie Mack. With everyone’s eye on the prize, who will score the all-important victory this Thursday on IMPACT?
Battle lines have been drawn ahead of the return of Ultimate X at Slammiversary. One one side, we have seen the formation of a powerful new alliance between Ace Austin, Madman Fulton, Rohit Raju and Shera. Opposing them are X-Division Champion Josh Alexander, Petey Williams and Trey Miguel but conspicuous by his absence is Chris Bey. After Petey sent Bey a warning, telling him to “pick a side before a side picks you”, Bey remained on the outside looking in. Now the two are set for a singles collision this Thursday on IMPACT! where the winner will earn a huge momentum boost going into Ultimate X!
Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo made one thing abundantly clear last week – she’s done with Susan and Kimber Lee.
