Although Taya appears on both Impact and Lucha Underground promotions, she will represent Lucha Underground at the show and has previously explained the different personas in LU and Impact:
“I look at it the same way as a DC universe and Marvel universe. There is the Impact universe and Lucha Underground universe. From the way I carry myself to my moves to my finisher to my entrance. I’m not associated with a group here. I’m on my own for the first time. Taya here is a killer here. She is a bad ass. She takes nothing and knows she is the best. I feel like Taya on Lucha Underground is a different type of heel where Taya from Impact doesn’t run from a fight. She will stare it in the face and rip the person’s head off.
Taya from Lucha Underground would hide from a fight and hide behind Johnny Mundo. Push him into the fire. Then collect the prize afterward. She is more of a cheater and conniver. It’s a completely different dynamic. Its super fun to be able to have these two completely characters. A lot of people say when Lucha starts back, will I bring Taya Valkyrie to Lucha. I don’t think so because I like having these two different people I get to play. The scenarios are very different. The Impact Zone is different than The Temple on Lucha. The style is different.”
Below are other matches scheduled for the event:
- Impact Tag Team champions LAX (Santana and Ortiz) vs. Lucha Underground’s The Mack (Willie Mack) and Killshot (Shane Strickland)
- LU’s Aerostar & King Cuerno & Drago vs. Impact’s DJZ & Andrew Everett & Dezmond Xavier
- Impact’s Eddie Edwards vs. LU’s Jeremiah Crane (Sami Callihan) in an ‘I Quit’ Match
- Austin Aries & Fenix vs. Alberto El Patron & Pentagon Jr.
