Alex Shelley vs. Steve Maclin World title rematch set for Impact Down Under

Alex Shelley vs. Steve Maclin

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:

Friday, 6/30:

  • Impact World Champion Alex Shelley defends against Steve Maclin

Saturday, 7/1:

  • Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo defends against Gisele Shaw
