After what was seen last night, the Emergence card has undergone important updates. Let's find out together what it is and what, at least so far, awaits us for the h*t event on 12 August at Cicero Stadium in Chicago. An X-Division Championship match will be staged in which the winner between Mike Bailey (current champion) vs Rocky Romero next week during Impact on AXS TV, will face former AEW Jack Evans in a one-on-one.
The match was sanctioned due to Evans' inability to participate in Slammiversary's Ultimate X. Chirs Sabin and KUSHIDA will instead see it in a tag team match against two members of Violent By Design, Deaner and Joe Doering.
After the renewed attack suffered last night, Sami Callihan calls for revenge and will face Steve Maclin in a one-on-one. The Bullet Club, made up of Ace Austin, Chris Bey the Good Brothers and Hikuleo will see it in a 5 vs 5 against the Honor No More to put an end once and for all to a war that has been going on for several months.
The latest news on Emergence
If HNM wins, then they will get a shot for the couple titles, in case BC triumphs, then Honor No More will be forced to disband. From stipulation to stipulation, but there is also space for a window entirely dedicated to the AAA which has been collaborating closely with Impact Wrestling since 2017.
In this regard, the former PWG and ROH World Champion Bandido will make his official debut in the company facing Rey Horus. The female couple titles will be up for grabs and the reigning champion team composed of Rosemary and Taya Valkyrie will have to contend with the VXTs (Deonna Purrazzo and Chelsea Green).
Jordynne Grace will instead defend her Impact Knockouts World Championship from the assault of a former champion fresh back in the company and eager for revenge after Slammiversary's Queen of the Mountain, Mia Yim. Finally, the Impact World Championship will be up for grabs with Josh Alexander ready to defend the belt tooth and nail against MCMG member and Impact Wrestling legend, Alex Shelley.
Emergence will be available for live viewing through Impact Plus, Impact Ultimate Insiders and Fite TV. Meanwhile - speaking to Brad Gilmore of Sportskeeda Wrestling, Austin confirmed signing a new deal with the promotion: "I'm super excited but it's unfinished business.
The two-time X Division Champion, 2021 Super X cup, 2020 Match of the year, 2020 X Division star of the year but that list isn't long enough for me. We've still got a lot more ahead here with IMPACT Wrestling."
