Edwards vs. Kross first blood match added to Slammiversary XVII


A first blood match has been added to the card for Impact Wrestling's next pay-per-view.

On last night's episode of Impact, it was announced that Eddie Edwards will face Killer Kross in a first blood match at Slammiversary XVII. The PPV is taking place at Gilley's Dallas in Dallas, Texas on Sunday, July 7.

There was a scene on this week's Impact where Edwards was at a church confessing about the voice in his head that is getting him to do bad things. Kross then appeared and confronted Edwards. Edwards said there are rules in the church, but there are no rules outside. Edwards told Kross that he'll be waiting for him.

An angle aired on last week's Impact where it appeared that Kross' character may have been written off in a brawl with Edwards, but Dave Meltzer reported that it was just an angle to build up their feud and Impact has no plans to grant Kross' release.

Here's the updated card for Slammiversary:

  • Impact World Champion Brian Cage defending against Michael Elgin
  • X-Division Champion Rich Swann defending against Johnny Impact
  • Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie defending against Su Yung, Jessicka Havok, and Rosemary in a Monster's Ball match
  • Impact Tag Team Champions LAX (Santana & Ortiz) defending against The Rascalz (two of Dezmond Xavier, Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel)
  • Tessa Blanchard vs. Sami Callihan
  • Eddie Edwards vs. Killer Kross in a first blood match
  • RVD vs. Moose
