Two championship fights for Impact Wrestling’s Down Under tour in Australia have been announced, with both events airing live as pay-per-views on FITE.
Alex Shelley, the new Impact World Champion, will defend his title against Steve Maclin in a legally required rematch on Friday, June 30th.
Shelley defeated Maclin at Against All Odds last Friday, ending Maclin’s nearly two-month reign as champion.
Shelley is currently scheduled to defend against Nick Aldis at next month’s Slammiversary pay-per-view, but the outcome of this battle could change that.
Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo will defend her title against Gisele Shaw as part of the second event/PPV on Saturday, July 1st. These two have met several times in a variety of competitions during the last year, splitting two singles matches.
Shaw will defend her title at Slammiversary against both Purrazzo and no. 1 challenger Trinity.
Both events will air live at 5 a.m. Eastern and will afterward be accessible on demand.
The current roster for both tournaments from Wagga Wagga, NWS, Australia is as follows:
- Impact World Champion Alex Shelley defends against Steve Maclin
- Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo defends against Gisele Shaw
