Rhyno made an appearance at Impact Wrestling’s Slammiversary tonight in Dallas, TX.
Following the Michael Elgin vs. Brian Cage match, Elgin went to attack Don Callis, and was meant with “GORE” from a masked man. Josh Alexander did not mention who was behind the mask, but it wasn’t too hard to identify the former WWE star.

Earlier this week, WWE sent three tentative matches to the Target Center for local advertising of the TLC pay-per-view.

The current match card includes, Roman Reigns vs. Baron Corbin in a TLC Match, this may change, as their has been talks to host a Dog Collar Match rather than a traditional Tables, Ladders, Chairs Match, but that has yet to be finalized.
Other matches include The Kabuki Warriors defending the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch in a Tables, Ladders, Chairs Match, and Bobby Lashley facing Rusev.
Originally, Lashley vs. Rusev was penciled in to take place at Survivor Series, but the company has decided to play out the storyline further, and have the match at TLC.
