The main event for Under Siege, the next IMPACT! Plus event, is now set. Chris Bey, Matt Cardona, Sami Callihan, Chris Sabin, Trey Miguel, and Moose will compete in a six-way match to determine who will become the new number one contender for the IMPACT World Championship.
Kenny Omega defeated Rich Swann at Rebellion to become the IMPACT World Champion. No rematch clause was given for either Omega or Swann due to the title vs. title stipulation. This left IMPACT needing a challenger for Omega. IMPACT executive Scott D’Amore started the April 29th edition of IMPACT addressing the locker room. He determined a six-man match would take place in the main event of Under Siege to crown a new number one contender. Six matches were made over the April 29th and May 6th editions of IMPACT to determine a new number one contender.
