In a surprising turn of events, former Impact World Champion Eric Young has made a triumphant comeback to Impact Wrestling at Slammiversary. Speculations arose when reports earlier indicated Young’s departure from WWE, and the wrestling world was abuzz with anticipation. At the highly anticipated event, Young emerged as Scott D’Amore’s mystery partner, pitting them against the formidable duo of Bully Ray and Cody Deaner. The audience erupted in excitement as Young, accompanied by D’Amore, dominated the ring, emerging victorious in his long-awaited return to the promotion.
However, Deaner, who had previously orchestrated Young’s on-screen demise, was left taken aback by Young’s unexpected revival. The ruthless act of stabbing Young was intended as a plot device to write him off the Impact programming, leaving fans shocked and wondering if they would ever witness his return. Young’s brief stint in WWE earlier this year remained devoid of any on-screen appearances, leaving his devotees longing to see him back in action. Young had previously showcased his talents as part of the esteemed SAnitY stable on “WWE NXT.”
Regrettably, Young’s return to the WWE fold was cut short, allegedly due to the return of the influential figurehead, Vince McMahon. Intriguing plans had been brewing for Young’s tenure post-WrestleMania 39, fueling excitement among fans and insiders alike. However, McMahon’s reentry into the company coincided with the shocking news of the WWE-UFC merger, which sent shockwaves through the industry, reverberating immediately after the grand WrestleMania extravaganza.
