Nick Aldis added to Impact Slammiversary match
Current NWA star and former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis has been announced for the Impact Wrestling Slammiversary pay-per-view. Aldis did not appear on tonight’s go-home episode, but it was announced that he is one of two mystery men to join the Impact Originals to face Honor No More on Sunday.
The 10-man match will now feature Honor No More’s Eddie Edwards, Vincent, PCO, Matt Taven and Mike Bennett vs. AEW star Frankie Kazarian, NWA star Nick Aldis, Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley and one more mystery partner of the Impact Originals.
Aldis, then known as Magnus, worked for TNA from 2008-2015, and again in 2017. He is a one-time former TNA World Heavyweight Champion and a two-time former TNA World Tag Team Champion. Aldis made a special appearance for Impact back at the Multiverse of Matches event on April 2, teaming with wife Mickie James to defeat Matt Cardona and wife Chelsea Green. That was Aldis’ first Impact match since he and James Storm lost a Triple Threat to EC3 on the May 25, 2017 show.
There is no word yet on who the final mystery man will be for the Impact Originals.
