Backstage Talk On If Rhyno Was Really Under The Mask For His Impact Return, Rhyno On His Future

The story going around Impact Wrestling on Rhyno’s return at the recent Slammiversary 17 pay-per-view was that someone else was under the mask, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Despite the masked man looking the part and doing the Rhyno mannerisms, word going around was that it was not the real Rhyno who attacked Michael Elgin.

As noted, Rhyno was still legally under contract to WWE when the Slammiversary return happened, but it’s been reported that WWE has no plans to take action. There had been some speculation on Impact and WWE agreeing on a deal to allow the appearance, perhaps in exchange for Rob Van Dam‘s RAW Reunion appearance, but The Observer reports that there was no deal between the two sides.

It was also noted by the Observer that one Impact source outright stated that the masked man was not the real Rhyno, but Impact officials wanted everyone to think it was him, and they thought it was great that they were able to fool people.

We noted earlier this week that Rhyno spoke with and confirmed that he turned down a lucrative WWE deal to return to Impact under a new multi-year deal. In that same interview, Rhyno was asked what happened with the Slammiversary appearance, and if he was still under WWE contract for another week at that point.
