IMPACT Wrestling has confirmed that Steve Maclin is off next week’s Slammiversary pay-per-view.

Maclin had been due to team with Bully Ray to take on Scott D’Amore and PCO.

In a press release, IMPACT announced that Maclin, 36, had sustained a “serious injury” during the promotion’s Down Under Tour in Australia.

The nature of the injury has not been confirmed, nor a timescale for recovery.

Bully Ray’s new tag partner for the match is set to be announced live on Monday during Busted Open Radio on Sirius XM.

Santino Marella, IMPACT’s storyline Director of Authority, commented:

First and foremost, everyone at IMPACT Wrestling wishes Steve Maclin a full and speedy recovery. Whoever Bully Ray brings aboard as his new tag team partner will step into a violent fight, that’s for sure. PCO is fearless and nearly unstoppable; Scott D’Amore is bent on revenge against Bully Ray, so any new partner for Bully Ray also will feel the wrath of D’Amore and his 30 years of pro wrestling knowledge.

IMPACT Slammiversary is set for 8 pm on Saturday, July 15th, at the St. Clair College Sportsplex in Windsor, Ontario.
