Wilson and Rickenbacker were aligned on the original David tribe, while Impact battled on the TV show as part of the Goliath tribe. Impact was the seventh voted off the island, on day 22, and the second member of the jury, which ultimately voted Wilson as the Sole Survivor and $1 million winner. Wilson was13th voted off the island, on day 35, and the eighth member of the jury.

“I’m really excited that Nick and Davie will be in my corner for the Homecoming pay-per-view match,” said reigning World Champion Johnny Impact. “Although I was rivals with both at the start of Survivor, we ultimately became good friends and I know each will have my back. Brian Cage won’t be able to blindside me with Nick and Davie watching my back.”

Impact has dipped into the Survivor well for additional support in his Homecoming match. Impact has talked at-length with Professor Christian Hubicki about how to defeat a Machine. The Homecoming pay-per-view features all of the Superstars and Knockouts of IMPACT Wrestling, including Impact’s real-life wife, Taya Valkyrie, who challenges Tessa Blanchard for the Knockouts Championship.

Impact and Valkyrie, married days after he returned from filming Survivor in Fiji, are looking to be the company’s first husband-wife duo to simultaneously hold major championship titles – and one of the first- ever in any pro wrestling promotion.

The Homecoming pay-per-view also features a four-man Ultimate-X match to crown a new X-Division Champion, plus LAX (Santana and Ortiz) defends the Tag-Team Championship against the Lucha Brothers (Pentagon Jr. and Fenix), while Eli Drake battles Abyss in a Monster’s Ball Match.
