SPOILER ON NEW SLAMMIVERSARY PPV MATCH, PLAN FOR IMPACT TV COMING OUT OF PPV, NOTES FROM PHILLY AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2019-06-08 17:32:00

Add Sami Callihan vs. Tessa Blanchard to the lineup for the 7/7 Slammiversary PPV. They shot the angle for the match at last night's NYC TV taping and we are told filmed some additional material to follow up on it leading into the PPV.

For those who have asked, yes, Impact management were pulling their hair out over the Pursuit Network not airing the correct episode last night.

For those traveling to Texas for New Japan and Slammiversary, there will be no post-PPV TV taping from Impact. The plan is that the week after the PPV, Impact TV will feature a documentary-style look at the show with some fallout from it, sort of similar to the old Reaction shows during the SpikeTV era. They will then tape TV in Windsor, Ontario on 7/19 and 7/20. 

PWInsider.com will have live, ongoing coverage of tonight's "A Night You Can't Mist" event in Philadelphia, featuring The Great Muta & Tommy Dreamer vs. Johnny Impact & Michael Elgin on top.  The show will air live on FITE.TV and Impact Plus.

Ed Nordholm, who was at the TV tapings, is not in Philadelphia as he headed home and Don Callis is on his way to Japan, so Scott D'Amore will be running tonight's event with D'Lo Brown and Tommy Dreamer.

Melissa Santos will be ring announcing tonight.

Josh Mathews and Scott D'Amore will be doing the commentary for tonight's special.

Former WWE NXT star Bull James, The Blue Meanie and Roadkill are backstage in Philadelphia. 

Former ECW Director Ron Buffone is also in the house.  Buffone now works as an herbalist.

Jerry Lynn was originally scheduled to referee the main event, but will not be here.  I am not sure why.

Impact Wrestling released the following video:
