Eric Young holds a promo about his first experience at Wrestlemania when he saw Ricky the Dragon Steamboat in the ring. He tells us his story of how he started his training and ended up getting a chance at Impact, then joined Team Canada and got beat up by the coach. He fast forwards to the time when he was scared of not making money, but he got over that too. He has worked with many people in this business, was thrown away like a piece of trash and now here he is in his truest and purest form.
Josh Alexander joins Gia Miller backstage to discuss his upcoming match against Eric Young at Slammiversary 2022. Josh says he doesn’t respect all of Eric Young’s actions, but recognizes what Eric Young has done for Impact in the past.

Josh Alexander asks who will usher in the next generation of this company, Eric Young or Josh Alexander. Josh says if Eric Youn wants to be an Impact World Champion he better have the fight of his life.
