The next episode of IMPACT Wrestling is continuing to take shape.
After the May 20 episode ended, all that was known about the next episode is that Petey Williams & Josh Alexander would take on TJP & Fallah Bahh and that NJPW's Satoshi Kojima will make his IMPACT Wrestling debut.
In addition to those, we now know that Sami Callihan will be opening the show. He came to Moose's aid last week when it looked like Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers were about to attack the #1 Contender to the IMPACT World Championship. Sami told Moose backstage that he has his sights set on whoever walks out of Against All Odds with the belt.
Furthermore, a 10-Knockouts Tag Team Match was announced. Deonna Purrazzo, Kimber Lee, Susan, and Tasha Steelz attacked Tenille Dashwood after her victory over Kiera Hogan this past week. Taylor Wilde, Havok, and Rosemary all came to her aid. Now, all the aforementioned Knockouts, plus Rachael Ellering, who defeated her partner Jordynne Grace in singles competition, will face off in a match on May 27.
Finally, Violent By Design has been advertised as addressing IMPACT. Last week, Rhino and Joe Doering defeated FinJuice (David Finlay & Juice Robinson) to capture the IMPACT World Tag Team Titles after the NJPW stars had just defeated Ace Austin and Madman Fulton. They were able to do this because Rhino cashed in his Call Your Shot trophy.
The full lineup can be seen below. Fightful will keep you updated if any other announcements are made.
