PromoSlam 2021 is the upcoming thirty-third Max Wrestling Podcast special, and sixth under the PromoSlam chronology. It will be hosted by "The Captain" Dazzy Dangerously and feature regulars Mike Larkin, Moses Marquez and special guests including Cypher in his farewell match, Chad Malcolm, The Demoness, The Kingpin, Robert Davis and Travis Anderson.
As established the previous year, PromoSlam continues as the only special named after the year rather than its chronological number. This edition had a casino theme and will feature bouts for both the Promo, Knowledge and World Championships.
This event debuted the "Double Or Nothing" rules match, where the Knowledge Champion had to double the challenger's score in order to retain the Championship.
The Promo Championship introduced the "Deuces Wild" match, in which both Champion and Challenger had a secret "wildcard" participant to cut an extra minute-long promo along with their own, as is tradition, the challenger was the winner of the King Of The Mic 2021 tournament, Traivs Anderson - who defeated Phoenix in the final, with Phoenix's World Title also on the line.
At Trivia Takeover 6, The Jester announced he had to face The Kingpin in order to resurrect The Shape (who was defeated in a cinematic match by The Phoenix at PromoMania VI.) The match featured the resurrection of The Kingpin by The Demoness and surprise appearance by Robert Davis.
The last match added to the card was Chad Malcolm challenging The Phoenix for the World Championship in a trivia bout. This was announced immediately after The Phoenix successfully defended the title against Mike Larkin - also in a trivia bout - on the August 5th edition of Max Wrestling Podcast. However, Phoenix lost the title to Travis Anderson in the King Of The Mic final and Phoenix defeated Malcolm on the Pre-Launch Show to earn a shot at Marquez. Anderson was later unable to appear and relinquished the title. Malcolm then defeated Phoenix in an impromptu rematch
The Predictions Championship was on the line for NXT Takeover 36 and SummerSlam.
This was the first special event since the introduction of the Promo Championship where every Championship changed hands, and was also the last event, subsequently, to feature the Promo Championship.
The episode aired on August 19th, 2021 on Facebook, YouTube, Soundcloud, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, TuneIn Radio, Castbox and Anchor.
The Pre-Launch Show took place on August 17th.
