“We are delighted to welcome two legends in Rob Van Dam and Sabu back to an IMPACT Wrestling ring,” stated Impact President Ed Norholm. “Add this to the list of other matches we have announced and United We Stand is becoming a dream night of action for wrestling fans all over the world made available through our partners
