IMPACT Wrestling is back with a new episode this Tuesday on AXS TV at 8pm EST as the Road to Slammiversary continues! With the recent departures of IMPACT World Champion Tessa Blanchard and Michael Elgin, the main event has seen two of its five competitors out of the match, which will now crown a new IMPACT World Champion – will we see new competitors added? Could it be some of the rumored “free agents”? The Road to Slammiversary on July 18 is heating up as we take a look at what’s what for Tuesday!
Madison Rayne’s Locker Room Talk with Guest John E. Bravo
Madison Rayne and co-host Johnny Swinger welcome John E. Bravo, the manservant for Taya Valkyrie who has been caught in-between the self-proclaimed “Sugar & Spice” duo of Valkryie and the “Demon Assassin” Rosemary in recent weeks. What lies in store for this charismatic trio in the weeks to come leading into Slammiversary?
Fallah Bah & TJP vs. Reno Scum (Adam Thornstowe & Luster the Legend)
Fallah Bay & TJP continue to make a case for the #1 Contendership for the IMPACT World Tag Team titles currently around the waists of The North‘s Ethan Page & Josh Alexander, although in their last match in early June they lost to The Rascalz‘ Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz. Reno Scum made their return to IMPACT after being off during much of the COVID pandemic with a big win against XXXL two weeks ago and are also looking to get their names back in the title picture. A huge tag team match that will change the pecking order in the tag team division when its all over.
Suicide vs. Chris Bey (w/ Johnny Swinger)
Suicide has had a rough go since returning to IMPACT with two big losses to Moose in recent months. The masked high flyer looks to regain his form as he challenges “The Ultimate Finesser” Chris Bey one-on-one on Tuesday, but Bey is in the best form of his IMPACT career as he prepares to face Willie Mack for the X-Division Championship at Slammiversary. A win for Suicide could be monumental in him regaining any sort of momentum, but first, he has to get past Bey and his cheerleader, Johnny Swinger.
D’Lo Brown Wants To Get The Band Back Together…
In post-episode exclusives on their Social Media, IMPACT caught a moment featuring IMPACT producer D’Lo Brown, who has an on-line call to friends and feeling low about his position in the company, especially in regards to what others think of him. “Yeah, I understand perception is reality, but I don’t like being called a ‘corporate stooge’ or being company in any way,” he told his mysterious friend. “You know, I’d really like to get the band back together. We’ll talk tomorrow.” After shutting down his laptop, Brown got up to reveal his Aces & Eights jacket on the chair, the gang that Brown was a member of in IMPACT Wrestling in 2012 through 2013. Aces & Eights featured such names as Bully Ray, Mr. Anderson, and Luke Gallows, the latter of whom has been heavily rumored to be possibly returning to IMPACT, but this time alongside his longtime tag partner Karl Anderson. You can see D’Lo Brown’s segment at the 3:49 mark of the video below.
The North Addresses Attack on Ken Shamrock
Last week, The North attacked Ken Shamrock in a heinous assault that seemed to come without provocation, leaving the former World Champion injured. This Tuesday, The North will speak out on why they targeted “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” after Ethan Page released a news bulletin on his Social Media this past week mocking the situation.

Madman Fulton (w/ Ace Austin) vs. Trey Miguel
Ace Austin remains one of the three men in the IMPACT World title match at Slammiversary and now that he’s found a new enforcer in former oVe muscle Madman Fulton, he’s been systemically trying to beat up his opponents at Slammiversary to enhance his odds. Fulton already had a physical fight with Eddie Edwards last week and this week Fulton is taking on the other man in the match, The Rascalz’ Trey Miguel. With Austin at his side, Fulton looks to have the upper hand, unless Trey’s fellow Rascalz Dez & Wentz can keep things in check.
TNA World Heavyweight Championship: Moose (c) vs. Crazzy Steve
While the title has not been reactivated nor endorsed by IMPACT Wrestling management, Moose continues to defend the former TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt on IMPACT television, declaring himself the “real World Champion” in the company. He’s already defended it twice against Suicide and most recently against another former TNA Original in Hernandez, but on Tuesday he’s putting the Big Brass up against Crazzy Steve, who has been running riot in IMPACT since his recent return.
