The program also saw the returns of three familiar wrestlers in Gunner, Shark Boy and Suicide.
Shark Boy resurfaced in an attempt to convince "Cowboy" James Storm to select him as his tag team partner for the World Tag Team Championship Match against Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez at Slammiversary (Robbie E also appeared to try to convince Storm). This was followed by the return of Gunner, who took out Shark Boy as well Robbie E. Storm then confronted Gunner and said he would "See him at Slammiversary." He then shook his hand.
Earlier in the show, Suicide defeated Joey Ryan and Petey Williams to land a spot in Ultimate X Match at Slammiversary for the X Division Championship against titleholder Kenny King and Chris Sabin.
Following the event, Gunner remarked on his return to iMPACT! Wrestling—he had not appeared since October. The North Carolina native wrote on Twitter, "Great to finally return home to Impact tonite! @Cowboy_J_Storm and I see eye to eye! We want tag gold! See ya in Boston folks."
