Report: IMPACT Slammiversary Set For Just After WWE No-Compete Clause Expiration Date
Could there be some new names in the IMPACT Zone?
IMPACT will reportedly hold this year's Slammiversary on Saturday 17 July, just mere days after the no-compete clauses for recently released WWE superstars expire.
Ten names were let go by WWE on April 15, 2021. Samoa Joe, Mickie James, Chelsea Green, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, Kalisto, Tucker, Bo Dallas, Mojo Rawley and Wesley Blake were confirmed as departing the company.
IMPACT Wrestling teased this year's Slammiversary with a video package recently, which contained brief snippets of Joe, Green and James, hinting that the trio could be on their way to the IMPACT Zone.
PWInsider is reporting that this year's Slammiversary will be held just two days after those respective wrestlers see their 90 no-compete clause with WWE expire, meaning they would be free to appear at the show, provided deals could be agreed.
IMPACT would welcome a number of recently released WWE talent at their Slammiversary 2020 show as well, with Karl Anderson, Doc Gallows and Eric Young among the names signing with them following their respective departures from Vince McMahon's promotion in April 2020.
