I see in the latest video that Amazing Red, a Japanese flag and also a Canadian flag are also visible after the Bulgarian one. Hopefully Team Canada still return but Japanese one now has me most intrigued. Hoping it more than representing Gallows & Anderson past NJPW history and its either some Noah talent returning or I'm really hoping an partnership with NJPW.

NJPW is highly unlikely but rumours are Gallows and Anderson will be allowed to do NJPW and TJP already does so even a mini partnership with some young lions would be so good. I know last partnership didn't go well with Okada but really hoping now for something special.
The three nation flags could possibly point to Eric Young coming back in as leader of the World Elite rather than just Team Canada as has been rumoured

I'm really hoping an partnership with NJPW.
I would actually be ok with this as long as NJPW takes the helm position and steers the ship.

I don't think there is any international travel as NJPW has had a majority of home talent for their recent shows with no Ospreay, Jay White, GOD etc. But, maybe a couple are stuck in the US?

Also, NJPW do have a American based show now called Lions Break so I'd welcome even a partnership with NJPW USA.

Even if it isn't NJPW but say return of World X Cup announced in future or Marufuji from Noah would be just as good.

Just hope that all these different teases now produce quite a few interesting stories and future plans, and don't just end up being Bully w/ Anderson & Gallows as I'd say thats like 99% happening now with to many leaks. I'm not saying everyone shown has to appear but like EC3, The Bennett's, EY, Aces & 8s (Bully w/ Gallows n Anderson), Team Canada and now Beautiful People in the gauntlet will hopefully happen. And then if all that plus Amazing Red, Lio Rush, Rusev/Miro, a Japan partnership (NJPW or Noah talent returning at some point), and even Hawkins n Ryder, I'd be very happy.
I really think this is a lot of wishful thinking but boy would I be stoked if it happened but I don't think it will. It's not completely out of the realm of possibility as Impact is under new ownership than TNA was and Don Callis is tight with NJPW. I just started watching Impact and have seen about 8 shows in the last week and I actually like what they're doing but they need to step it up a bit and get those names on the roster. I'm liking them more than AEW but that's not saying much considering I've really soured on AEW the last month or two.

World Elite EY would actually be pretty sweet and enable more freedom than Team Canada. If Rusev does come, after he recovers from covid, then he could be the muscle in EYs group to replace the role of Elgin.

Less than 5 days now for confirmation and some reveals. Can't wait.

Somebody said that the final day of the released wrestlers 90 day non-competes was actually yesterday so I wonder if anybody debuts on Impact tonight maybe with a taped promo?, there was some talk a couple of weeks ago that Gallows & Anderson had already filmed stuff for the company.

Something which hasn't really been spoken about from the latest teaser is the brief clip of 3 children in the garden. It seems very out of place from the rest of the compilation and seemingly has nothing to do with wrestling. Then I remembered that there are 3 shot glasses later in the video. Is it possible that the 3 kids are actually the same people grown-up later in the vignette? If that's the case; it would be two men and one woman, but can't think who it could possibly be? Mike & Maria with another guy? Gail Kim and AMW? Does one of the Good Brothers have a wrestling wife or previous valet? suppose you couldn't rule out some sort of persona for E...C...3 as well. That bit has got me stumped.

3 red headed kids = Heath Slater. A few weeks ago when Rohit asked Rhino about being his partner and Rhino said he has a partner (looks in the camera and smiles) and he has kids. But I doubt Heath comes in. Looks like they maybe going with Rhino and Hernandez as partners.

I do think Slater will come in and team with Rhino but I wouldn't be shocked if it was only very short term with Slater then turning and joining Aces & Eights.

Impact seems to be getting a lot of people all worked up with these teaser videos but I wouldn't be surprised if all we get are Gallows and Anderson, Mike Bennett and Maria, Eric Young and Heath Slater because this is Impact we're talking about.

I wonder if Rusev was slated to be the mystery world title match opponent before he came down with covid-19. Hopefully it will be EC3.

I'd be surprised considering NJPW was recently dropped by AXS TV which is owned by the owners of IMPACT. If NJPW wouldn't directly work with AEW which has far more exposure, I don't see why they would work with IMPACT.

I almost think the split with AXS was mutual but I don't know all the specifics I just thought that's what I read somewhere. I'm with you, I don't see them having a working relationship but I would be down for it if they did (as long as NJPW and Gedo steer the ship)

Did someone watch AfterShock Yesterday? 2 things stood out to me regarding July 18.
- There is a MINIMUM of 11 Knockouts in the match... I'm hoping we see Tay Conti.
-They kept saying the "Former World Champion" might not be in the World Title match... I don't know what to make of it...

Well EC3's music did play after a Moose win. EC3, a former World Champion could be doing something with Moose after the Dreamer match. That still leaves someone else for the main event. I kind of want to see Sabin as the mystery man. I think he would work very well with Eddie, Ace and Trey.

Susie & Su Yung?
Didn't think of that... Would make sense...

Sabin would fit perfectly with those 3... I'm thinking they are also bringing back everyone that was supposed to appear at the TNA Show... So amazing red, Alex Shelly, Ken Anderson....

By the way this morning on Busted Open Bully Ray told Eddie "see you soon"... I'm sure he was kidding and is not the 4th man, but he's probably one of those coming Back (Aces & Eights)

The mystery entrant has to be involved with a new group. I say that as they were teasing Team Canada with Elgin and this mystery entrant is replacing Elgin, so perhaps they will also win via interference from an incoming group, perhaps still Team Canada, Aces and 8s, World Elite or even a new group? Would rather EY or EC3 over Bully Ray just purely that it would still be a bit of mystery of who will assist them because if its Bully, you know Aces & 8s are definitely coming.

If it's EC3, I wonder if he's gonna be part of a group or be alone? Is it just me or he seems to be teasing an Impact Return way too much? As if it's a swerve and he's not coming back... If he's not here on Saturday, I see him popping on Dynamite Wednesday...

Just announced: Rascalz open Challenge for July 18...Doc/Anderson or MCMG?

^Please be MCMG.

I've read that there are rumour that they are trying to bring in everyone who was due at TNA One Night Only Special, so would explain Amazing Red in the videos. And rumours for that event was MCMG in ring return so them returning here, even if for one night only, Vs Rascals would be sweet.

Would also mean Mr. Anderson back as he was announced with D'Lo as Aces & 8s for the same special.

Also, read this morning on wrestlezone that a recent Moose interview has him saying original plans for the TNA WHC was to be for the winner of the KOTM match at the ONO special to. Slightly disappointing now that Moose's match at Slammiversary isn't KOTM but here's hoping the past stars like Chase Stevens, Chris Harris and even Scott Steiner still appear as they can fit story wise vs Moose as assistance to Dreamer.
