Anthem and AAA made a cross-promotional deal a few months back and now it’s coming to fruition … because two Lucha Underground stars will be wrestling at Slammiversary.
Impact announced on Monday that Drago and King Cuerno aka El Hijo del Fantasma will be appearing at Slammiversary as part of the alliance between AAA and Impact Wrestling. They will both be featured in a four way match for the Impact Wrestling Tag Team Titles.
As we previously reported, wrestlers that work with AAA and Lucha Underground will not be allowed to appear on Impact Television as characters created by LU. Cuerno himself is being billed under El Hijo del Fantasma for this very reason and Drago was using the character before the show ever aired.
While the other two tag teams haven’t been announced, Impact officials say they’ll also be pulled from other international promotions ahead of the event on July 2.
