Impact Wrestling Slammiversary was a really good show overall, but there’s one moment that could lead to potential problems and it’s a pretty simple mistake.

No Way was a surprise introduction as Fallah Bahh’s tag team partner in the 4 way match for the Impact Tag Team Championship.

What seems to have caused the problem, as reported by @wrestlingmaniac24__, was a miscommunication.

When he introduced No way, Bahh said that when he was told to pick a replacement for TJP, he said, “No… no… No… Way Jose” and No Way came out and put on a solid performance.

It was great to see him actually given something to do aside from being laid to waste by lars Sullivan or chase after the 24/7 Championship like in the WWE, and he was impressive in his debut.

No Way was released by the WWE in April 2020 and went on the independent circuit where he wrestled as Levy Valenz until his debut with Impact Wrestling.

Different name, same persona

Since the WWE owns the trademark on No Way Jose, he’s going by No Way in Impact but he’s keeping the rest of his gimmick and it’s awesome.

There’s something really cool about him coming out as a surprise but with his brightly dressed conga line along as well. Somewhere along the line he even picked up Johnny Swinger and the Swingerettes.

Of course, the goof happened and the announcers, Matt Stryker and D’Lo Brown, quickly corrected No Way’s name. And to be honest, I wasn’t sure why at first.

As it turns out and according to Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE reportedly owns the trademark for No Way Jose, so he’s going to be called No Way in Impact Wrestling.

It was a simple mistake and nothing much will probably come of it as long as it doesn’t happen again.

They’ll also probably have to scrub the audience as they chanted his name like in the WWE, and it’s understandable since he’s basically doing the same thing.

What’s ahead

It’s going to be really fun to see what’s in store for No Way and what trouble he can get into with his conga line.

Since Swinger and his crew were part of it, we assume No Way’s going to be an addition to Swinger’s Palace to help entertain the wrestlers as they come to play the games.

One thing’s for sure, Impact Wrestling is going to be interesting in the coming weeks and we can’t wait.
