Identity Of Man Featured In IMPACT’s ‘Future Endeavors’ Teaser Revealed
IMPACT Wrestling is teasing something big for Slammiversary in July and we know who the man delivering the “breaking news” is.
Last night’s episode of IMPACT on AXS ended with a promo teasing the appearance of several former WWE Superstars that were released in April. The broadcaster that was seen delivering the report is WTVF-TV NewsChannel5 (Nashville) sports anchor and former professional wrestler Jon Burton.
Burton has been teasing more updates in the coming weeks regarding the mystery IMPACT Wrestling signing on his personal Twitter account, so it looks like the reveal will be an ongoing segment until we get to Slammiversary on July 18.

As seen in the promo, IMPACT used footage of EC3, Rockstar Spud, Mike and Maria Kanellis, Curt Hawkins, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson and Eric Young in the clip. While they weren’t shown on-screen (due to IMPACT not owning any footage of them), a Bulgarian flag and glass of whiskey were also shown during the promo, leading to speculation that Rusev and Aiden English could also be headed to IMPACT.
All of the previously mentioned names were released by WWE in April; all of them but Rusev and English had worked for IMPACT and/or Global Force Wrestling prior to their latest WWE runs.
