Slammiversary’s main event changed
Impact confirmed on tonight’s episode of Impact Wrestling that the main event of Slammiversary will be a fatal four-way for the Impact championship.
Announcer Josh Mathews confirmed that Trey Miguel, Ace Austin, and Eddie Edwards will compete in a fatal four-way match for the vacant Impact championship. The fourth person in the match is being billed as a yet to be named mystery opponent.
The match originally was a five-way bout. Michael Elgin and Eddie Edwards were originally set to challenge champion Tessa Blanchard at Rebellion, but the match was unable to happen due to travel restrictions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Trey Miguel later advanced to the finals of a number one contender’s tournament but was attacked before he could compete. That tournament was then won by Ace Austin.
Both Tessa Blanchard and Michael Elgin are no longer with Impact Wrestling. Blanchard was stripped of the Impact championship and was fired last week, while Impact announced that Elgin would no longer appear on Impact programming.
The IMPACT World Championship has been declared vacant but a brand new champion will be crowned on July 18th at #Slammiversary!
