Impact Wrestling’s annual Slammiversary pay=per=view event was filled with tons shocks and surprises. Numerous former WWE talent such as No Way Jose, Chelsea Green and Mickie James showed up in-person to the event and a package hyping the former Aiden English was shown as well.
In the main event, Impact World Champion Kenny Omega successfully defended his championship against the challenger – Sami Callahan. However, there was a surprise during this matchup in it’s own right and it certainly wasn’t a welcome one. Numerous fans have reported that the pay-per-view was cut off in the middle of the show’s final segment. During this segment Jay White, made his debut and then things were left unanswered. Kenny Omega ‘teased’ this top WWE star leaving earlier this year.
However, in what wasn’t seen, following White’s entrance to the ring, he didn’t get the chance to answer the call of the Good Brothers’ famous ‘Too Sweet’ hand gesture. Jay White has been famously a member and leader of the Bullet Club in NJPW since 2018.
In the moments after the show was cut off, FinnJuice rushed the ring. Switchblade would hit his finisher on Juice Robinson and then leave the ring.
Over on social media via Twitter, professional wrestling fans discussed the controversial ending to Sunday’s Slammiversary pay-per-view event. One fan questioned if the abrupt ending was planned as Gannon Barnes stated: “If that ending to #Slammiversary was a planned cliffhanger, that’s a pretty ballsy move by Impact. Part of me likes it because it makes you want to tune in on Thursday, but the other part of me feels like you shouldn’t end a PPV that way.”
