    Re: Impact Wrestling General Discussion Thread

    Fightful Select have now reported that a backstage fight between Michael Elgin and former World Champion Sami Callihan could be the reason. The report states that the fight erupted after the two disagreed over how a match involving Ken Shamrock should start. Scott D'Amore had to step in and break the fight.

    Fightful has learned of a physical altercation involving IMPACT Wrestling stars Michael Elgin and Sami Callihan. Fightful was told that the two recently were setting up a match that also involved Ken Shamrock, and disagreed on how the match should start. The disagreement escalated to the point where the two ended up fighting and Scott D'Amore had to step in. Not that it's related, but IMPACT also released a statement today stating that Elgin will no longer appear on their programming. He was involved in the planned Slammiversary main event, and a Team Canada tease.
    This has been floating around on Sportskeeda as one of the reasons why Elgin's suspension turned into a release.

    So Eric Young's back in iMPACT Wrestling as Super Eric? Thoughts?

    I think the Super Eric thing is a tease and he'll just be himself on the show.

    The 7/14 edition of Impact in 60 will focus on Scott Steiner, including bouts against Bobby Lashley and Petey Williams.

    The 7/20 episode will focus on Ladder Matches, featuring AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy and more.

    The 7/4 edition of Xplosion, featuring Ethan Page vs. Hernandez and an interview with Rich Swann is now streaming on Impact+.

    Impact has continued to release new Slammiversary shirts featuring talents announced for matches, including most recently Tommy Dreamer.

    Impact Wrestling released the following video online:


    Hard to believe they've managed to find 5 moments..

    Re: Impact Wrestling General Discussion Thread

    To be fair the Eric Young/Robert Roode feud was one of the things that got me into TNA at the time, so he's had some pretty good moments

    Re: Impact Wrestling General Discussion Thread

    Young had plenty of good moments. Guy won virtually everything he could win in the company, succeeded as a serious and comedy wrestler, found success as a tag and singles wrestler, and there was even a point in 2006 where he may have been the most popular act in the company.

    Eric Young had a fairly prolific career with Impact so I wouldn't doubt they could make a top 20 list.

    Young winning that TNA World Title an amazing moment... even though the timing of it was just badly chosen.

    EY was a great, diverse talent for TNA. I'm a mark for his World Elite days, and that's one of his less remembered runs.

    Apologies, I only really saw a Young during his 2010ish run where his character was slightly brain dead.

    Well, that was the case for a lot of his career, but I feel like that isn't relevant. For the sake of comparison, just look at R-Truth. Only counting his run as a comedy character, you could easily make a great little compilation video of his best moments. EY is in that same boat, only he was likely more accomplished in TNA than Truth in WWE (24/7 reigns notwithstanding). I mean the man was there for over a decade, won the World Title and is one of only five Grand Slam champions in the company's history.

    Re: Impact Wrestling General Discussion Thread

    To be honest when I look at people who TNA could put into their Hall of Fame, Young might be one of the most deserving outside of the obvious absentees like AJ and Joe who can't cause they're in WWE atm. The guy did everything in the company. When I think Eric Young, I think TNA.

    To me, Eric Young and Mike Tenay are the first guys I'd try to get in there next.

    Re: Impact Wrestling General Discussion Thread

    So I may be a bit late to the party but I stumbled across a recent Xplosion match on YouTube and to my delight it had Don Callis AND Matt Striker on commentary. I don’t know if it was a guest spot for Striker or a tryout but he makes such an difference, part of the issue I still have with Impact is Josh Mathews being the voice of the product.

    It's strange, because unless I'm mistaken, Callis hasn't even returned to commentary on the main product yet it's usually Josh and Madison Rayne.

    He called Slammiversary didn’t he? Unless they’re somehow remoting in, I’m not entirely sure.

    Re: Impact Wrestling General Discussion Thread

    I think it’s just that Josh and Madison are better than Josh and Don.

    I think Striker and Madison would be good.

    I’ve been looking for this match with Matt and Don. Anyone have a link?

    Don’t judge me, it was match with Kimber Lee and Katie Forbes, I was intrigued to see if they would book Lee to win and also to see if Forbes shows any signs of improvement.

    That match was uh....something lol.

    As far as the commentary, it was hard to tell, with the match and all but I’m certain that it it’s better than Josh Matthews.
