Impact is fond of teasers and surprises for their PPVs and special events. That much is in store for the Under Siege show on May 7.
Impact has been playing grindhouse teaser trailers the past few weeks. Targeted images included Josh Alexander, Eddie Edwards, Eric Young, Moose, W. Morrissey, Deonna Purrazzo. Letter initials were EGV to signify something, which I’m completely stumped about.
The latest teaser had a set of numbers referring to the date for Under Siege.
Hints point toward Sami Callihan returning from injury after breaking his ankle in September. Before Sami was put on hiatus, there was a story brewing about him becoming the face of Impact. The wrestlers shown in the teaser have all built their stock in his absence to claim top draw status. Perhaps that will be the hit list for Callihan upon return, assuming it is him. Or maybe it’s all a trick for someone else. Guessing is half the fun.
The Under Siege card currently includes:
- Impact World Championship: Josh Alexander (c) vs. Tomohiro Ishii
- Knockouts Championship: Tasha Steelz (c) vs. Havok
- X-Division Championship: Ace Austin (c) vs. Trey Miguel
