- One half of the TNA Tag Team Champions Davey Richards recently spoke with Live Audio Wrestling about this Sunday’s TNA Slammiversary. He teased that he alongside Eddie Edwards would be defending their titles against a special tag team.
“Yeah, I mean we are definitely going to be defending our titles. We are definitely going to be at Slammiversary. I can’t really say who yet because they haven’t announced it yet, but I can tell you that you’re going to dig it. I can say that!”
It should be noted that Kevin Von Erich and his two sons who are wrestlers have been advertised to appear. The Wolves have not been given an opponent as of this writing, so you can put two and two together.
