IMPACT World Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs. Sami Callihan
Kenny Omega became the IMPACT World Champion at Rebellion when he defeated Rich Swann. He successfully defended the title against Moose at Against All Odds after an assist from The Young Bucks. Per the stipulations made going into the match, Sami Callihan became the number one contender. Callihan appeared after the match and laid out everyone with a baseball bat. IMPACT Executive Vice President Don Callis was a guest commentator for the match and attempted to get Callihan to back off. This attempt was unsuccessful and Callis fired Callihan on the spot.
The following week on IMPACT, Tommy Dreamer, who was sent as a representative of IMPACT, officially fired Don Callis from his role as an Executive. Dreamer also reinstated Callihan as the number one contender, setting the stage for Slammiversary. The contract was signed a couple of weeks ago on IMPACT, making the match official. Callihan is ready to get his hands on Omega after weeks of back and forth between him Omega and The Good Brothers. We will find out if Callihan is able to defeat Omega and bring the title back to an IMPACT wrestler.
Prediction – Kenny Omega retains after outside interference

IMPACT Knockouts Championship: Deonna Purrazzo (c) vs. A Mystery Opponent
Deonna Purrazzo won the IMPACT Knockouts Championship at Slammiversary last year from Jordynne Grace. She lost the title in October of last year before recapturing it a month later. She will look to repeat her Slammiversary success this year. Purrazzo has her work cut out for her at Slammiversary. The current champion separated herself from former partners Kimber Lee and Susan and is trying to prove that she never needed them to win. She laid out an open challenge for her Knockouts title that was answered by a debuting Lady Frost. After Purrazzo defeated Frost and retained the title, she was greeted by former Knockouts Champion Gail Kim.
Kim informed Purrazzo that she will be defending her title at Slammiversary. Purrazzo seemed to think she would be challenging Kim, but Kim informed her that her opponent will stay unnamed until the event itself. IMPACT has promised a change in landscape starting with Slammiversary and has teased a few different appearances for the event. Tune in to find out who Purrazzo will defend her title against at Slammiversary.
Prediction – Deonna Purrazzo retains
