It appears as though IMPACT Wrestling saw the recent batch of WWE releases as a very good day, as many of the released stars have either debuted, or are set to debut for the promotion soon.
We’ve already seen former NXT star Deonna Purrazzo make her IMPACT debut, and on last night’s episode of IMPACT, we got a huge return tease for a former champion.
A couple of weeks ago, EC3’s entrance music was played, which seems to suggest he will definitely be re-debuting very soon, perhaps at July 18’s Slammiversary show. They followed this up by playing Eric Young’s music on last night’s show, again teasing his imminent return to the company.
The news was first reported by Fightful, who wrote:
“In past weeks, EC3, Aces & Eights, Team Canada, among others have been teased on IMPACT Wrestling programming. Tonight, the company will tease the return of Eric Young. We can’t go into specifics, but it may affect the previous Team Canada tease, as Elgin is now out of the company and this tease is categorically different.”
It was reported earlier this week that former WWE tag champions Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson had also signed for IMPACT, and that we could see a handful of former WWE stars debut at Slammiversary later this month.
