Slammiversary 2021
Ultimate X for the X Division Championship
Josh Alexander (c) vs. Chris Bey vs. Petey Williams vs. Trey Miguel vs. Ace Austin vs. Rohit Raju

Chris Bey thinks he has the genius idea of climbing the ropes right away but it was not genius since most of the match was already in the ring. Raju hilariously cannot make it up the rope due to his height. So many high spots it’s hard to catch up. Raju brings out a rope to climb up to the X-Division title and almost succeeds until Petey Williams brings him down. Trey Miguel hits a scary spot but brings an X-Divison chant from the crowd that was gratefully missed. Raju later brings out a hook to quickly bring down the title and even uses it as a weapon. Josh Alexander has the X-Division title wrapped around his legs and even gets Bey in an ankle lock upside down. This match just has so many great spots it is hard to name all of them. Williams even hits a Super Candian Destroyer from an electric chair position on Chris Bey with the assist of Alexander. Bey and Alexander were on the top, having a tug of war with a title, but everyone but Alexander was on top to retain his title.

Winner: Still X-Division Champions Josh Alexander
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Star

Gia Miller is with Don Callis. He talks about Tommy Dreamer and his power increasing. His bladed fingers are all over this No DQ stipulation tonight. He said if it wasn’t for IMPACT Wrestling, he’d be in a max security prison. He doesn’t want to see a beautiful face like Kenny Omega’s scarred by Sami Callihan. He makes up fake moments that Kenny he has been for in support of Kenny (like being drafted by the NHL). Callis says Callihan may be a dangerous man, but Kenny is a god.

IMPACT World Tag Team Championship
Fatal Four-Way Match
Violent By Design (Joe Doering & Deaner/Rhino) vs. The Good Brothers vs. No Way Jose & Fallah Bahh vs. Rich Swann & Willie Mack

TJP was unable to compete in the match, and Fallah Bah had to find a replacement and he found No Way (Jose) and he is back with the conga line and everything. Former Dusty Classic partners No Way and Rich Swan start the match and have a more fun approach to the match hitting the Kid ‘N Play dance. Karl Anderson spoils the fun but hurts him as the other babyface team upon him. Interesting to point out that no one is tagging in VBD who is calculating their approach. But finally, Doering and Gallows pick up where they left off from Thursday until everyone else breaks it up. Rhino was ready for the Gore on No Way but was hit with Stun Gun by Anderson and Gallows tags himself in. They hit the Magic Killer on Rhino and win their second tag team championship.
