An X-Division Championship match has been added to the card for Slammiversary 2020.
Impact Wrestling announced tonight that Willie Mack will defend his X-Division Championship against Chris Bey at Slammiversary. The pay-per-view is taking place on Saturday, July 18.
Bey, Johnny Swinger & Rohit Raju defeated Mack & The Deaners in a six-man tag match on this week’s Impact. To set up the X-Division title match for Slammiversary, Bey pinned Mack to get the win.
Mack has been X-Division Champion since winning the title from Ace Austin at Rebellion night one in April.
Impact confirmed in February that Bey has signed a contract with them.
Deonna Purrazzo challenging Jordynne Grace for the Knockouts Championship is also set for Slammiversary. Tessa Blanchard was supposed to defend her Impact World Championship against Michael Elgin, Eddie Edwards, Ace Austin, and Trey Miguel in a five-way match at the PPV, but Impact issued a statement tonight confirming that they’ve terminated their relationship with Blanchard and stripped her of their World title.
It was announced earlier this week that Elgin has been suspended by Impact Wrestling “pending further review of allegations of misconduct.”
Impact has been teasing that Slammiversary will feature involvement from wrestlers recently released by WWE. It’s also been announced that at least one former World Champion will make his return at the PPV.
