At least one former World champ to return at Impact Slammiversary


Impact Wrestling has confirmed that at least one former World Champion will be returning at Slammiversary.

Tonight's episode of Impact ended with another teaser for Slammiversary. "We continue to follow the ongoing story of the 20-plus professional wrestling superstars released from their contracts two months ago," the news anchor in the teaser said. "Reliable sources have just informed us that at least one former World Champion will make his return to Impact Wrestling on Saturday, July 18. More as this story develops."

Quick glimpses of past footage of some former Impact World Champions and recently released WWE wrestlers were shown as part of the teaser:

EC3 was one of those wrestlers included in the video. Earlier on tonight's Impact, his old theme music played after Moose retained the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Hernandez. The commentators acknowledged that it was EC3's music and said that Moose recognized it.

Moose has been calling himself TNA World Champion since bringing the belt back at Rebellion in April.

Tessa Blanchard is the Impact World Champion and will defend her title against Michael Elgin, Eddie Edwards, Ace Austin, and Trey Miguel in a five-way match at Slammiversary.
