What could be. While it might not be as popular as it was before, there is no denying that WWE is still the biggest and most successful wrestling promotion in the world today. They have more exposure and more fans watching their product than anyone else, meaning that a wrestler working for them is going to get a lot of exposure. That status can continue even after they leave, and now a company is teasing some upcoming appearances.
Impact Wrestling has released a new ad teasing appearances from Daniel Bryan, the IIconics and the Forgotten Sons for Slammiversary on July 17. The video features a series of fast paced images, including the word YES (Bryan), the letters II (IIconics) and “Forgotten” (Forgotten Sons, Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake). All of these wrestlers have left WWE in recent weeks and would be available to appear at the show as their no compete clauses would have expired.
This is an updated version of a similar video that Impact Wrestling releases a few weeks ago, which featured images of Samoa Joe and Mickie James, both of whom have wrestled for the company in the past. There is no word on if any of these wrestlers have signed with Impact Wrestling. Last year, Impact Wrestling released a similar video to tease wrestlers appearing at the show, with Eric Young and the Motor City Machine Guns making appearances.
This could get interesting. Check out the ad and see who you can spot:
Opinion: This is one of those situations where you are going to have to just wait and see. Impact Wrestling teased a bunch of appearances last year and while several names did appear, it wasn’t quite the same thing. I would be curious to know who shows up, but it is hard to fathom Samoa Joe or Bryan appearing for the promotion. Maybe they are going to surprise me, but it would be a heck of a surprise.
Who do you think shows up? Who do you want to show up? Let us know in the comments below.
