Heath to make Impact Wrestling in-ring debut next week

Next week's episode of Impact will feature the former Heath Slater's in-ring debut for Impact Wrestling.

It was announced on last night's Impact that self-proclaimed TNA World Heavyweight Champion Moose will defend his title against Heath on next Tuesday's show. The match has a stipulation where Heath will get a spot on the Impact roster if he wins.

After being released by WWE in April, Heath made his first appearance for Impact at Slammiversary earlier this month.

Heath interrupted a backstage interview with Moose on last night's episode of Impact. Moose said he was giving out another invitation for someone to challenge for his title. Heath claimed that the TNA Championship Committee gave him a contract for a title shot. When Moose said there is no TNA Championship Committee, Heath said that would mean there's no TNA Champion either.

After Moose agreed to give Heath a title shot, Scott D'Amore told Heath that he'll open up a spot on the Impact roster for Heath if he defeats Moose next week.

Moose has been calling himself TNA World Heavyweight Champion since April. On last week's Impact, Moose retained the title against Fallah Bahh before being attacked by EC3.

Here's the full list of what's been announced for next Tuesday's Impact:

  • An open challenge for Eddie Edwards' Impact World Championship
  • X-Division Champion Chris Bey & Rohit Raju vs. TJP & Fallah Bahh
  • Self-proclaimed TNA World Heavyweight Champion Moose defending against Heath
  • A sit-down interview with Impact Tag Team Champions the Motor City Machine Guns
  • Rich Swann will appear and give an update on his status after Eric Young attacked his ankle at Slammiversary
