The IMPACT World Tag Team Championship was defended at IMPACT Wrestling Slammiversary 2021. The reigning champions, Violent By Design, defended the titles in a four-way match featuring Rich Swann and Willie Mack, The Good Brothers, and Fallah Bahh and a mystery partner. Originally, Bahh was set to team with TJP. However, the day before Slammiversary, IMPACT Wrestling announced that TJP would be unable to compete. Thus, it was teased that Bahh would team with a mystery partner. This individual would prove to be none other than No Way, formerly known in World Wrestling Entertainment as No Way Jose. Always the life of the party, No way made his way to the ring with his signature conga line in tow.

No Way competed well in his IMPACT Wrestling debut, showcasing not only his trademark fun-loving demeanor but a sense of explosive offense as well. Despite this, he wouldn’t be able to pick up gold in his debut. The match was ultimately won by the now new IMPACT World Tag Team Champions, The Good Brothers, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows.
Real name Levis Valenzuela Jr., the man known as No Way is best known for his time in WWE. He signed with the company in the summer of 2015. The following year, he would be repackaged as the conga line-dancing, fun-loving star known as No Way Jose. During his time on the NXT brand, he wrestled multiple high-profile matches against the likes of Austin Aries and current IMPACT Wrestling star Eric Young. Jose would make his main roster debut in 2018, wrestling primarily on the Monday Night Raw brand. In April of 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, he was one of several WWE Superstars released.
Following his release, No Way wrestled on the independent scene under the name Levy Valenz. He has worked primarily for Lariato Pro Wrestling Guild, based in Georgia.
