This Sunday, Impact Wrestling invaded the Rebel Complex in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for the 16th annual Slammiversary pay-per-view, celebrating the past, present and future of this Little Engine Who Could that has somehow stayed in business long enough to find itself in the midst of a career renaissance.
With a stacked card that delivered from top to bottom, we saw one of the best Knockouts matches in recent memory, two of the best X-Division matches in recent history, three hardcore-style matches that all felt totally unique, a personal grudge match for the ages, a man got his head shaved bald in one of the best bouts in company history, and a traditional world heavyweight championship main event to cap it all off. There was something on this card for everyone – they couldn’t have hit a bigger home run if they tried.

With the momentum of perhaps the best U.S. wrestling pay-per-view of 2018 behind them, Impact Wrestling returns to the Rebel Complex this Monday and Tuesday for multiple sets of television tapings that will kick off the long road to Bound For Glory. It was confirmed that this year’s show will be taking place on October 14th at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City.

With Slammiversary behind us and SummerSlam still far enough off in the distance, we’re looking at a relatively calm week ahead in the world of wrestling. It’s business as usual for WWE albeit with Stephanie McMahon teasing an “historic announcement” on Raw. Impact Wrestling should be a must-see show coming off one of the best PPVs in company history. NJPW fans have a few days off, but we’re back to the G1 grind on Thursday morning with three big shows back, to back, to back.
