Impact Wrestling returns to the Impact Zone this week for their next set of television tapings, starting with a semi-live show Thursday night.

ImpactWrestling.com has confirmed that Knockouts Champion Rosemary will be in action this week as she defends her title against ODB.

ODB, who made her return to the company last month, won a Knockouts Gauntlet match to become the number one contender to Rosemary’s Title.

Read ImpactWrestling.com’s preview to this week’s Knockouts title match below:

This week ODB gets her shot at becoming a 5-time Knockouts Champion. Could this be the opponent that Rosemary cannot get into the psyche of and gain the upper hand going into the match? ODB is like nothing Rosemary has ever faced before in the six-sided ring. A founding member and cornerstone of the Knockouts, ODB knows what it takes to stick and stay, and she’s got the resume to prove it. However, we have to wonder if ODB has ever stood toe-to-toe with anyone as maniacal and unorthodox as The Demon Assassin. Does ODB possess the mental and physical strength to outlast Rosemary and her mist of many colors? Or will this new breed of Knockout prove to be too much for our beloved original member of the Knockouts? Time will tell as we count down the days until we see Rosemary defend her championship live this Thursday on IMPACT on POP!

Impact Wrestling will be holding television tapings from April 20th – April 23rd.

Are you excited to see this match? What else do you predict will happen on this week’s episode of Impact? What would you like to see happen from this set of Impact Wrestling tapings? Let us know in the comments below!

  • Rosemary better win this one. If ODB of all people beats her then I’m done.

  • Agh! I’m not excited at all, I never liked ODB, I really hope Rosemary retains, she is the best Knockout nowadays.

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    I think ODB expired. I used to love her but she got stale YEARS ago.

      Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

      scream hey

  • Nathan

    Rosemary for the win. She’s the only decnt KO at the moment.

  • Glitter Bliss Banks

    Rosemary has one of strongest Title runs in recent years, finally the hot potato crap stopped when she won! I think Rosemary and Taryn have been my favourite champs in the last 5 years. (Madison is my favourite KO champ of all time)
    I never really cared for ODB, the only time I liked her was when she pared with Jackie against Velvet, I liked her aggression…now she just got dusty.

    • MK126

      I think the reason why ODB is so stale/”dusty” as you say is because it doesn’t seem like she wrestlers anywhere else unless TNA calls her. I had said when it was reported that she was coming back that she probably sits by her phone waiting for them to call cause she doesn’t wrestle for any other promotions (to my knowledge). So every time she shows up shes always doing the same shit lol

      • Glitter Bliss Banks

        Yeah your right ,tbh ODB comes across as such a cool woman outside of the ring, she seems to be well respected in the business and such a sweetheart. It seems impact relies on her whenever they get nostalgic and want to redo the past….Her and Angelina seem to be the go to girls when they want to revive the 2007-2009 days of the Knockouts. Obviously she goes back for a reason, many people like Madison, Gail and Angelina I feel are so loyal to the company they will do anything to help out.
        I’m so over Impact as a company, just not the Talent, all the talent is fabulous in my opinion, Eventhough ODB has been used time and time again in the same format, I have no doubt that she and Rosemary will deliver!

      • C Mack

        She did some stuff with RoH but it may have been last year..idk

    • Juan

      Top 5 longest KO Championship Reigns:

      1)Taryn Terrell (1)- 279 days
      2)Gail Kim- (5)-232 days
      3)Gail Kim (2)- 210 days
      4)Rosemary (1)- 192+ days
      5)Madison Rayne (3)- 188 days

      I’m hoping Rosemary retains so her reign can enter the top 3.

  • Gail-Rollins Fan
  • Moz za

    Hope Rosemary retains

  • Summer_Slay #KellyToSaveRAW

    If ODB wins im done with TNA.

  • Steven5812

    I don’t see a downside to this match; it’s not like Rosemary was facing Sticky Nikki BimBella, that walking blowup doll Velvet Pie, that man jawed bimbo Brooke Adams, or a still-green Brandi Rhodes.
    And I want to see if Rosie can hit the RED WEDDING on Ol’ Dirty too; if she can her place in Impact Wrestling history is assured – at least to me.

  • Juan

    Please retain! Please retain!! Please retain!!! Rosemary has had a really good run so far and I don’t want to see her drop the title to anyone except Allie! Make it happen Impact!! Do not pull an LolTNA moment!
