Impact Wrestling’s Slammiversary continued to take shape as it was announced The North will defend their tag team titles against Ken Shamrock and Sami Callihan at the July 18th pay-per-view.
The match was made on Tuesday’s show after Ethan Page and Josh Alexander came out for a promo where they continued to verbally run down the former UFC star and how he could never get a partner as he has no friends. Last week, the two jumped Shamrock as he was set to have a match with Alexander.
Shamrock came out to confront them and a Callihan video played with him asking, “Who needs friends when you have an enemy?” The former Impact World Champion then appeared in the ring and the the two laid out the tag champions. He then said, “Thumbs up/thumbs down” to Shamrock and disappeared.
Afterward, Page and Alexander were backstage complaining to Scott D’Amore and he made the match for Slammiversary which they weren’t happy with.
Thus far, the Slammiversary card is as follows:
Vacant Impact World Championship: Eddie Edwards vs. Trey Miguel vs. Ace Austin vs. TBA
Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace vs. Deonna Purrazzo
X Division Champion Willie Mack vs. Chris Bey
Knockouts Championship #1 contender gauntlet match: Alisha Edwards vs. Havok vs. Kiera Hogan vs. Kimber Lee vs. Kylie Rae vs. Nevaeh vs. Rosemary vs. Susie vs. Tasha Steelz vs. Taya Valkyrie
