IMPACT Wrestling Slammiversary 2020 Updates

IMPACT Wrestling returns to the pay-per-view arena with their much-anticipated SLAMMIVERSARY pay-per-view on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at Skyway Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

The show is the source of a lot of buzz and social media interaction within the pro wrestling community, as several teases have been made for surprise returns and debuts at the 7/18 PPV event.

In addition to the promotion itself declaring that a former world champion will appear, there have been teases for Aces & Eights (Bully Ray and others), EC3, and Heath Slater appearing at SLAMMIVERSARY on July 18th during recent episodes of IMPACT On AXS TV, as well as the official website and social media channels for IMPACT Wrestling.

Also rumored for the show are a number of WWE Superstars who were recently released as part of the massive COVID-19 cutbacks the company made back in April, including Rusev.

As far as the main event is concerned, original plans for Tessa Blanchard vs. Ace Austin vs. Eddie Edwards vs. Trey Miguel vs. Michael Elgin in a five-way elimination match for the IMPACT World Championship was blown up when Blanchard was stripped of the title and the promotion announced that Elgin will no longer be appearing on any of their programming as a result of the #SpeakingOut accusations made against him.

Featured below is the advertised lineup as it stands for the 7/18 IMPACT Wrestling SLAMMIVERSARY PPV.
