Face time! One of the best things about Impact Wrestling in 2020 was the mystery of Slammiversary. The company made it very clear that some of the recently released WWE stars would be heading to the promotion but the question was which ones would be there. It made for some great drama and then the payoff wound up working rather well. It went so well that they might as well try it again.
It worked before. Check out the teaser for this year’s Slammiversary:
During Sunday’s Rebellion pay per view, Impact Wrestling aired an ad for July’s Slammiversary event. The video featured brief flashes of recently released WWE stars, including Samoa Joe, Chelsea Green and Mickie James, all of whom have worked for Impact Wrestling before. Also included were flags of Australia and Mexico, along with Kazuchika Okada, Tetsuya Naito and the Great Muta. Slammiversary 2020 saw the debuts of the Good Brothers and the returns of Eric Young and EC3.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that gets my attention as last week’s build went very well. I know there might be less talent available this year, but some of the names are a lot bigger this time around. I’m curious to see who is going to be showing up at Slammiversary, including some potential international stars. This is something that could make for some interesting moments and maybe Impact Wrestling can pull it off all over again.
