July 18 just so happens to be the date of IMPACT’s Slammiversary pay-per-view, at which the promotion has teased several former WWE stars could be appearing.
Two of those names have reportedly signed contracts with the promotion, those being Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. According to the report, the duo’s deals allow them to also compete in NJPW.
A host of other names have been rumoured too. IMPACT has confirmed at least one former World Champion will be returning, with the front runners being EC3 and Eric Young.
Other names that have been rumoured include Mike Bennett & Maria Kanellis, as well as Rusev. It’s been a rough few days for IMPACT, but could the tide be turning in its favour?
