Firstly, in a rematch from IMPACT Under Siege 2023, Joe Hendry will again face Dirty Dango for the IMPACT Digital Media Championship.
Additionally, Frankie Kazarian will battle Eddie Edwards. On the June 1 episode of IMPACT, both men got physical after Kazarian took umbrage with how Eddie Edwards handles himself.
The last match added to the card has implications for IMPACT Slammiversary. It was announced that Trinity Fatu would challenge Deonna Purrazzo for the Knockouts World Title on July 15, but on June 9, both women will have to try to coexist as they take on the team of Gisele Shaw and Savannah Evans.
After communication broke down between Eddie Edwards and Frankie Kazarian two weeks ago on IMPACT, Frankie came to believe that Eddie Edwards was setting a poor example as a locker room leader. Case in point: after defeating Yuya Uemura in a highly competitive contest, Edwards disrespected Uemura by pulling away a handshake after the match. A confrontation ensued between Edwards and Kazarian, resulting in physicality between Kazarian and Eddie’s wife Alisha. The two will now face off on June 9 at Against All Odds to determine who the better locker room leader truly is.
The revelation that Dirty Dango was responsible for the attack on Santino Marella sent shockwaves through IMPACT. Since then we’ve seen a much different side of Dango, angry and bitter at the perceived shortcomings of the next generation of wrestlers. Joe Hendry stood up to Dango, but a low blow in their Digital Media Championship match at Countdown to Under Siege stopped Hendry in his tracks before Santino returned to save the Digital Media Champion. Marella is reluctant to step inside the ring again given his Director of Authority role, and instead made a rematch between Hendry and Dango at Against All Odds on June 9.
Since her debut in May, Trinity has been at odds with Gisele Shaw and her entourage. Having accepted Trinity’s Slammiversary challenge, Deonna Purrazzo will now have to team with her next challenger as she and Trinity will face Gisele Shaw and Savannah Evans on June 9 at Against All Odds. Can Trinity and Purrazzo co-exist ahead of their Knockouts World Championship match in July, or will Shaw and Evans prove more dangerous than ever after taking out Jordynne Grace?
