Deaner will replace Steve Maclin at Slammiversary this Saturday night.
After an injury sustained by Maclin on the recent Australian tour, IMPACT Wrestling has elected to replace the former champion with Deaner. Deaner is set to tag with Bully Ray against Scott D’Amore & TBA on the pay-per-view from Windsor, Ontario.
D’Amore was teaming with PCO on the show, although they are promoting that PCO’s status is in doubt after an angle on last Thursday’s broadcast where PCO was lit on fire.
