Last year’s IMPACT Slammiversary changed the face of the wrestling world. Taking place just three months after a round of WWE releases, the company aimed to cap off three years of hard work with one of their biggest events of all time – and they did just that.
Building up a “major surprise” for the event, it was reported by myself one month before that Gallows and Anderson had signed with the company and would be debuting at the event. However, this turned out not to be the only shock instore as the company actually confirmed their signing at midnight on the day of the pay-per-view.
As well as the Good Brothers, Slammiversary 2020 saw the return of Motor City Machine Guns and Eric Young to the company, with the latter entering the main event as a mystery man along with the previously injured Rich Swann. Meanwhile, Eddie Edwards became IMPACT World Champion, Chris Bey won the IMPACT X Division Championship and Deonna Purrazzo won the Knockouts Championship.
Since then, the ‘Forbidden Door’ has slammed open with talent from AEW and NJPW appearing in IMPACT, with AEW World Champion Kenny Omega even becoming the IMPACT World Champion.
Ahead of this year’s show, IMPACT promises “our world changes again” as they tease big things for the monumental show.
