Lio Rush sent a message upon his debut on the June 29, 2023 edition of IMPACT! on AXS TV. After defeating Jack Price in singles action, Rush made his intentions crystal clear when he joined Nick Aldis in assaulting the Motor City Machine Guns later that night. Rush would go on to attack Chris Sabin with the X-Division Title and stall tall over the reigning champ to close out the show. In a digital exclusive clip, it was Sabin who laid out the challenge to Rush for an X-Division Title showdown at Slammiversary. We can now confirm that the challenge has been accepted and this blockbuster match has been made official for IMPACT’s summer pay-per-view extravaganza. Having held championship gold in some of the top wrestling promotions around the world, will Rush add the X-Division Title to his list of accolades?
