This show has become the highlight of the Impact Wrestling calendar as I have had a better time with it than Bound For Glory for a long time now. With some luck, that can continue this time around as the show is pretty well stacked. We have the main event of World Champion Kenny Omega defending against Sami Callihan in a No DQ match, plus a few mystery spots to be filled. Let’s get to it.

Slammiversary Thoughts

Oh hey, I ordered the show last night but didn’t particularly feel like doing a full review, so here’s some thoughts.  First up, I ended up fast-forwarding a few matches because I was only interested in some specific stuff, but overall the show seemed OK and pretty entertaining.  Having a crowd there, however small, was an immediate improvement over the empty arena studio show that they’ve putting out during the pandemic, so that was good.

We’re back on pay per view with this one and that means it is time to step things up. This time around, the big story is AEW’s Kenny Omega coming in to team with the Good Brothers against Rich Swann/Moose/Chris Sabin (as Alex Shelley is out due to some personal circumstances). The card isn’t looking great but Impact can do some good pay per views. Let’s get to it.

It’s the biggest night of the year, or at least it is on paper. Bound For Glory has long since been the top show in the company, though Slammiversary tends to be more fun. Maybe they can change things around a bit this year, though the card isn’t giving me the best vibes. Let’s get to it.
