Impact Wrestling issued the following press release to Prowrestling.net on Monday to announce that El Hijo del Fantasma and Drago will be involved in the Impact Wrestling Tag Title match at Sunday’s Slammiversary event.
IMPACT Wrestling, a subsidiary of Anthem Sports & Entertainment Corp., announced today that it will bring two superstars from Mexico-based Lucha Libre AAA (AAA for short) to participate in Slammiversary 15 on July 2, a live pay-per-view filmed on the backlot at Universal Studios Florida.
AAA stars El Hijo del Fantasma and Drago will team up at Slammiversary in a 4-way match for the IMPACT Wrestling Tag-Team Championship, now held by the Latin American Xchange (LAX). The match will also feature talent from two other international promotions.
El Hijo del Fantasma (Spanish for Son of the Ghost) is a second-generation wrestler who has been wrestling since 2000, following the wrestling boots of his father, El Fantasma.
Drago, who has been wrestling professionally since 1998, has won multiple tag-team championships and is regarded as one of the most colorful, charismatic and creative wrestlers ever.
Powell’s POV: Drago has been a standout in Lucha Underground, and Fantasma also works for the promotion as King Cuerno. Join me for live coverage of Slammiversary as the show airs on Sunday night.
