This won’t be an easy win for the Ace and Bey Connection. Subculture have a history of gold in their own right as former NXT UK tag champs. Andrews and Webster held the titles for 47 days in 2019. Subculture’s tenure in the WWE property came to an end when they were released on August 18, 2022.
For Andrews, this match will mark his return to TNA/Impact. He previously competed as Mandrews winning TNA British Boot Camp season two and sticking with the company for two years before parting ways at the end of 2016.
The Under Siege lineup for May 26 currently includes:
- Impact World Championship: Steve Maclin (c) vs. PCO in No DQ
