Rhyno appears at Impact Wrestling Slammiversary XVII


Rhyno appears to have made his return to Impact Wrestling at last night's Slammiversary XVII pay-per-view in Dallas, Texas.

After Brian Cage retained the Impact World Championship against Michael Elgin by reversing a powerbomb attempt into a pin, there was a post-match angle where Elgin hit Cage with a title belt shot. Elgin then got into it with Don Callis and went for a powerbomb, but a masked man came into the ring, hit a Gore on Elgin, and did Rhyno's taunt.

Rhyno tweeted earlier on Sunday: "Nothing better then a 4th of July weekend in Texas. Time to get back to work." PWInsider also reported that Rhyno was backstage at Slammiversary and was going to be appearing on the PPV.

Rhyno last wrestled for WWE as part of the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on the WrestleMania 35 pre-show. In an interview with Chris Van Vliet that was uploaded on May 7, Rhyno said July 17 was the last date on his WWE contract.

Rhyno debuted for TNA in 2005 and won the NWA World title at that year's Bound for Glory pay-per-view. He departed the company in 2010 before briefly returning in 2014.
