A couple weeks ago Tommy Dreamer told Busted Open Radio that Impact would be taping 6 weeks of TV soon, and well “soon” is tomorrow or the next day and it appears there will be some talent that missed the last set of tapings on this round as Taya shared the news that she is headed to Nashville.
Taya has been stuck in California (like me) and adhering to the nations strictest social distancing recommendations, but as the curve continues to flatten, restrictions have begun to loosen. Still no word on whether Impact Champion Tessa Blanchard or Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace will be there. Tag Team Champs The North will most likely not be there as they are still in Canada. Pro athletes will be allowed to cross borders starting June 1st and Im assuming that means wrestlers too, so I think its safe to count The North in for Slammiversary next month.
As far as new talents, signees, and free agents go, main roster WWE talent were on 90 day non-competes so they will be unavailable until July 15th, but NXT talents were on 30 day restrictions and are available now. So talents like Chris Hero (unlikely), Deonna Purrazzo, Rachel Ellering, Tino Sabatelli, Dan Matha and Tay Conti could conceivably appear if Impact made deals with them.
