Eric Young has made his grand return to Impact Wrestling during the Slammiversary pay-per-view event where he TKTKTKTKTKT. Eric Young was one of the many former WWE Superstars that had been released this past April as part of an extended effort to cut costs during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Like many of the other WWE releases that had been looking toward new opportunities, Young has arrived in Impact Wrestling following the expiration of the 90 day non-compete clause that had held many of the releases back for the last few months.
After teasing that a former Impact World Champion would be appearing as the mystery opponent in the four way elimination match for the vacated championship, first fans were swerved when it was revealed to be Rich Swann. But soon after, Eric Young made his grand return to the promotion. Declaring that he once won the title at a Slammiversary in the past, now he's out to do it again as part of the now five way elimination match.
