IMPACT has confirmed that it will be Masha Slamovich that will be facing Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo this Saturday with the title on the line at Knockouts Knockdown.
It was announced on this week’s IMPACT! that Purrazzo and her future opponent at Bound for Glory Mickie James are placed in a Pick Your Poison situation. After both Knockouts concluded that they can’t keep their hands off of each other until their match at Bound for Glory, Scott D’Amore has required them to adhere to a no-contact clause. Gail Kim followed up with the idea of making the Pick Your Poison matches. James will choose an opponent for Purrazzo while Purrazzo will pick an opponent for James. James has chosen Slamovich as Purrazzo’s opponent. Purrazzo has not made her choice for James at this time.
Slamovich is a huge dominant force on the indie scene and will no doubt be a formidable opponent for Purrazzo who has held the Knockouts Title for nearly a year. She recently was seen at NWA EmPowerrr in the Women’s Invitational main event and on AEW Dark in a losing effort against Hikaru Shida.
With Slamovich confirmed as Purrazzo’s opponent, the full card for Knockouts Knockdown is as follows:
Eight-woman Tournament Match – Winner gets future Knockouts Title Match
Knockouts Championship Match – Pick Your Poison (Mickie James chooses Deonna’s opponent)
Deonna Purrazzo (c) vs. Masha Slamovich
