Hola Knockout fans and welcome to this week’s GFW Impact Write-Up. It’s been a newsworthy week over at GFW this week – both good and not so good. For now, let us put those stories to the side as we take a look what is in store for our Knockouts on this week’s Impact.

This week, Lucha Underground’s Taya Valkyrie makes her GFW debut and her presences is felt in the aftermath of a Knockouts tag team match featuring new gal pals Taryn Terrell and Sienna taking on the team of Gail Kim and Allie.

Ms. Taryn Terrell makes her entrance first and yes, I’m still bopping to this new theme song! The GFW Knockouts Champion is out next, as always, with her pinkies up and is accompanied by her cousin KM. Their opponents are out next – first up a bouncing Allie accompanied by Braxton Sutter followed by Gail Kim, who looks like she is ready for action coming down the entrance ramp.

Gail quickly goes after Taryn but Sienna cuts her off. She whips Gail to the ropes but Gail returns with a flying forearm that takes Sienna down. She follows up with a clothesline from the corner and a neck breaker on Sienna for a two count. Gail runs the ropes but Taryn provides a distraction when she pulls Gail by the hair allowing Sienna to take control.

The GFW Knockouts Champion lifts Gail up and drops her off the top rope. She tags in Taryn who trash talks Gail and lands in some cheap kicks. After tossing Gail head first to a second turnbuckle, Taryn tags Sienna back in.

Gail looks for a tag but Sienna prevents it and lands in a few punches to a grounded Gail. A shouting match breaks out between Allie and Sienna when Allie tries to run in to help Gail. Taryn asks for a tag but quickly tags back out after a hair yank to the mat and a swinging neck breaker on Gail.

Sienna sets Gail up for a powerbomb but Gail manages to counter it and make a much needed tag to Allie! A fired up Allie brings the fight to Sienna with flying forearms, a codebreaker and even a slice bread # 2 that earns Allie a two count over the champion. Go Allie go!

Allie begins to climb the top rope but KM interrupts when he pulls Allie by the leg. Braxton neutralizes KM and the men brawl their way to the back.

Turning back the attention to the match, we see Allie flying off the top rope and land a crossbody to Sienna. She tries to go for the pin but Sienna reverses with a pin of her own which ends up getting the three count and win.

Post match, the heels beat down on Allie and Gail but out comes the Hive Queen Rosemary to make the save! She gets off to a good start but the numbers game prove to be too much and the heels take back in control.

Suddenly, someone else makes her way down the Impact Zone – its Taya Valkeyrie! In Lucha Royalty fashion, Taya slowly approaches the six sided ring with and upon entering it, she stands across Sienna and Taryn but instead of attacking them, she blindsides Rosemary and attacks her instead.

After laying out Rosemary, the newest GFW Knockout stands tall from the second rope and looks down on Gail and Allie.

During GFW’s Last Word, Taya expresses her excitement of coming to GFW and is ready to prove why the Wera Loca is the one of the best from Mexico, Canada and Japan.

Karen Jarrett does not approve of Taya’s actions.

In the latest chapter of the Laurel Van Ness and Grado saga, ace attorney Joseph Parks advices his client Grado to break things off with Laurel upon learning she is Canadian. Going through with a wedding won’t help Grado’s visa issues and, if anything, will make it worse. So much for trying to beat the system?

An unsympathetic Grado bluntly tells Laurel the wedding is off after hugging her. He continues by telling Laurel not to cry because it’s over but smile because it happened. Heartbreak and nervous breakdown flushes over Laurel once again!

Oh and GFW promised to look into the Rosemary/Sexy Star drama from Triplemania XXV but it felt more like they were using the controversial moment to plug in other GFW stars. Eh, maybe its for the best. Sexy Star remains unapologetic about the issue, Rosemary is moving on and here we can see from more positivity from the partnership between AAA and GFW.

Thoughts: So this tag match did a couple of things. It brought in ongoing feuds (Gail/Tayn/Sienna), gave Allie a chance to show more wrestling, brought out a returning Rosemary and introduced Taya into the Knockouts division. After taking out Rosemary, we can add Taya vs . Rosemary to the list of ongoing Knockouts feuds.

I wish the Knockouts had a bit more time in this match. It was going over pretty well and it was great to see Allie begin to step up as a competitor. Taryn did the least work around here but I’m assuming this is because she is still a little rusty in the ring but she still has that uncanny characteristic.

I’ve said it before but I really think GFW missed out in pushing Allie fresh off her feud with Maria Kanellis. Yes she is still loved by fans but I feel as though she was at her peak coming off that wedding segment. Hell, she could’ve even entered into a feud with Laurel instead of having Laurel be stuck in this hopeless romantic role.

What did you think of this week’s GFW Impact? Are you excited to see Taya in the Knockouts division? Which Knockouts feud are you looking most forward to seeing? Let us know in the comments below!

    I approve!!!!!!

  • ABC_1990

    GFW has a habit of just debuting new wrestlers with no build up, push them for a few months, then let them just blend in with everyone else

    • Malcolm James

      Ever wrestling company do that everybody just get used to it?

    • Rhys Hawks

      Well in all fairness, Taya has had vignettes for the past few weeks, those are meant to build up new women.

  • Kvngbalor

    Allie should have left that feud with Maria and entered the title picture she is to GFW what Bayley was to NXT also Taryn has the best theme and entrance right now out of all the women GFW, NXT and WWE …well along with Naomi but i enjoy her theme better i can’t stop watching her entrance also Taya i was expecting a Game Of Thrones Charlotte meets Ember Moon type character the music the promos the robe the crown then she takes it off and look like Torrie Wilson mix with Krissy Vaine mix with Melina so we’ll see how this goes

    • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

      Eww don’t compare her to Melina. Melina is untouchable

      • Steven5812

        Even if I DIDN’T need specs there is no way I’D mistake that juiced up she beast for one of the hottest divas of all time.
        My boy Johnny should have put a ring on her YEARS ago. :(

        • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

          Tbh Melina is a beauty

        • Ace

          Why not both lol…?

  • Troy Smith

    If GFW wants to do something new and progressive, they could have Laurel marry a woman. Taeler Hendrix is available and they teamed on the indies.

    • Rhys Hawks

      Taeler was involved in the whole Heidi Lesbian angle in OVW, plus Taeler has the whole seductive thing going on with her Positively Poison gimmick, and her on TV again would be pretty great.

      • Troy Smith

        I remember that from when I used to watch OVW. I don’t recall how it ended. But I know that when Taeler was with ROH they would team as Dishonorable Impact.

        • John Finnie

          If im correct i dont think taeler liked the programme * as i said i may be wrong*

          • Troy Smith

            Personally, I’d have Laurel marry Rosemary as part of bigger story line.

          • John Finnie

            Ahh great idea…. is rosemaey from usa or canada

          • Troy Smith

            Canada

          • John Finnie

            I was thinking grado UK i get yoy now….. & give you a hell yeah to that

    • Ace

      This actually would be interesting.

  • Looking Glass

    I don’t know what it is about Taya, but I can never warm to her or see her a legitimate threat. I love the GFW logic of how Sienna and Taryn beat up Allie, Gail tried to save her and got beaten for it and then Rosemary tried to save them and got beaten but somehow Allie nor Gail felt well enough to make the most of the three on two advantage (before Taya came out).

    I just think at the moment things are scrambled, Sienna seems to have been dropped in her momentum. We’re STILL getting Braxton/KM brawl determining every match ending, Allie’s literally had the opportunity vaccines out of her and I still find Taryn’s motives forced. There’s just so much uncertainty, like LVN bouncing back to the same stale gimmick because someone in creative thinks they’re a comedian. Diamanté does sweet FA but try and look menacing, MJ and ACR have vanished alongside Ava’s personality. It just feels like they’re throwing stuff together hoping that it sticks and puts them back to their former glory.

      I really love Taryn’s gear, the big puffy skirt is too much IMO. This little one is much better

      • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

        I kinda like the big skirt it gives a extraneous to her character, maybe it should be cut different but I’m okay with it. I like how she pulls it up and then lets it slowly drape down so we can see the colors

        • Aye Mate

          I agree. I like the provocative clash of sexuality and religion in her entrance; I’d actually have her wear attire with duelling white and black. Taryn comes off creepy and seductive, it’s interesting.

  • Aye Mate

    Taya’s entrance was nice.

  • Nicola Byrne

    Beth Phoenix did the Glam Slam better

  • I really like the direction that they are going with this storyline!

  • Interesting shit on GFW! Finally like the KO’s roster.

  • Spiteful Dark Angel #ABliss

    Taya’s hair extensions are so disgusting omg. She needs to go full on blonde. She looks hella trashy. She has the presence though

  • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

    SDL’s division > KO’s division > RAW’s division > NXT’s division

  • Steven5812

    *Wants a .gif of Chelsea flipping out*.
    And was I the only one who thought Taya Valkyrie in the #Lastword vid looked like Diamante in a blond dye job? #Downgrade.

  • Miguel

    Taryn Terrell made knockouts great again! That’s it! She’s the star Impact needed!

  • John Finnie

    The glam slam better than a HOFer

    Gails gear was nice sienna still is boring me have taryn be the leader like maria ( with wrestling skills)

  • John Finnie
  • Marlon Eric
