EC3, Eric Young, Anderson & Gallows, Heath Slater, Motor City Machine Guns Appear at Impact Slammiversary

As promised, there were several surprise appearances on tonight’s Impact Slammiversary PPV, including:

The Motor City Machine Guns

Former TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns, Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, returned to Impact tonight, answering The Rascalz’ open challenge and defeating them.

The team wrestled in TNA from 2007-2012, and has wrestled in ROH and NJPW since.

They’ll get an Impact Tag Team title match against The North this Tuesday on Impact.

Heath Slater

The former Heath Slater, now known simply as “Heath,” made his Impact debut, coming out to the ring and saying that he wanted to answer the Rascalz’ open challenge, but showed up too late, but there was still time for him to fill the vacant spot in the World title match tonight. Rohit Raju then came out to attack him, but Heath got the best of him and took him out.

Later backstage, Heath met up with and hugged his former tag team partner Rhino. Scott D’Amore then showed up and told Heath to leave, saying that he doesn’t work here and they can’t have guests. Rhino told Heath to show up on Tuesday and they’ll figure it out.

Eric Young

Rich Swann was revealed as the mystery opponent in the four-way World title match, but then former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eric Young’s music hit and he came out and said that this match was now a five-way.

Young was the second person eliminated in the match (after Trey), getting taken out by Rich Swann. Young then “snapped” and attacked Rich Swann’s surgically repaired leg, then “Pillmanized” it repeatedly before getting taken away by security.

The Good Brothers

Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, known as “The Good Brothers,” showed up following the main event after Eddie Edwards won the title. Ace Austin and Madman Fulton attacked Edwards after the match when they showed up. The Good Brothers faced off with Austin and Fulton as if they were going to team up with them, but then attacked them instead and hit a Magic Killer on Ace. The Good Brothers then celebrated with Edwards and drank some beer.


After the World title match, they cut away to a short vignette by EC3, who stood in front of a wall holding a drink in his hand, then smashed the drink against the wall as the show went off the air.
