Tossing Salt Presents:
Impact Wrestling Slammiversary 2020
Thoughts & Predictions
July 16, 2020
Coming up on Saturday night, it’s Impact Wrestling’s Slammiversary pay-per-view, airing on FITE.TV and all other PPV outlets. And of course, that means it’s prediction time. So are you ready? Let’s do this…
Ace Austin vs. Eddie Edwards vs. Trey Miguel vs. mystery competitors to crown a new Impact Champion.
Competitors mean more than one person and I could easily see Impact adding two or three names as surprises and instant top stars for the company. Maybe EC3? Maybe Eric Young? Hell, maybe even Carlito. That would be cool. But regardless of who the surprise additions are to this match, it’s the main event for the Impact Wrestling World Championship, recently stripped from the now-terminated Tessa Blanchard. Impact needs a strong champion to rebuild after the disaster that was Tessa as the champion and not defending for three months. I think the next champion will be one of these mystery competitors that is added to the match. I’ll go with EC3 returning in this match and winning the belt, thus becoming the new champion.
Winner and NEW Impact Wrestling Champion: EC3
Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace vs. Deonna Purrazzo.
Honestly, I don’t even know anything about Deonna Purrazzo or who she is. Not a clue at all. I do know who Jordynne Grace is. She doesn’t impress me, but she has the belt and I think she’ll keep it here.
Winner and STILL Champion: Jordynne Grace
Impact Wrestling X-Division Champion Willie Mack vs. Chris Bey – Johnny Swinger banned from ringside.
I see the stipulation with Johnny Swinger and for some reason, I’m thinking about Ric Flair in a dress trying to get involved while hiding out in the crowd. (Look it up!) Mack is popular with the fans and in today’s world of BLM, a man of Mack’s stature is not going to lose. It probably wouldn’t go over too well and cries of “racist” would blow up Twitter. Sorry if I’m sounding bitter, but I just took a look at my Twitter feed and the politics and unrest in our nation is insane. My apologies. Mack retains and we move on to the next feud.
Winner and STILL X-Division Champion: Willie Mack
Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions The North vs. Ken Shamrock & Sami Callihan
The North has been the top tag team for Impact Wrestling for a long time and I think it’s time to shake things up a bit. The build has been great for this match and I think we’re in for a good match and some interesting moments. The title is going to switch hands here.
Winners and NEW Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions: Ken Shamrock & Sami Callihan
Gauntlet Match to crown Top Contender for Knockouts Championship: Madison Rayne vs. Kimber Lee vs. Rosemary vs. Neveah vs. Su Yung/Susie vs. Kiera Hogan vs. Taya Valkyrie vs. Tasha Steelz vs. Alisha Edwards vs. Kylie Rae vs. Jessika Havok
Most of these women are just there for filler and we can eliminate anyone not named Madison Rayne, Taya Valkyrie, Rosemary, or Jessika Havok. I think the final two will be Valkyrie and the returning Madison Rayne. It’s a big moment and big comeback for Rayne, fresh off a stint from Ring of Honor. I think she’ll ride the momentum and as a homecoming present, she’ll take home the win and be the new top contender to challenge Jordynne Grace at a future date. Watch and see.
Winner: Madison Rayne
Old School Rules: TNA Champion Moose vs. Tommy Dreamer
Old School Rules means “extreme” and “no rules”, a crazy and chaotic garbage match. Dreamer takes Moose to the limit, but I don’t think a run with the TNA Championship lies in Tommy’s future.
Winner and STILL TNA Champion: Moose
The Rascalz, Wentz and Dez, have issued an Open Challenge.
And this is where we see Rhyno answer the challenge, along with a partner from the past, a man “with kids”. And The Rascalz, they fall victim to the GORE! GORE! GORE!.
Winners: Rhyno and Heath Miller (Slater).
The promised return of a former World Champion and more.
I’ve already told you. EC3 is coming back. And maybe Eric Young too. That’s the big returns. So there you go.
