IMPACT Wrestling had a double header on Thursday with a special edition of their weekly show, plus the co-promoted Multiverse United event alongside NJPW.
First on IMPACT, Miyu Yamashita made her debut for the company and managed to defeat Killer Kelly in a physical contest that was filmed at the recent tapings in Windsor. Additionally, Knockouts World Champion Mickie James appeared on the live panel and noted that she is feeling better, but her status is still up in the air for Rebellion in two weeks.
Later on Multiverse United, the sole women’s bout saw Yamashita, Masha Slamovich, Deonna Purrazzo, and Gisele Shaw battle it out in a four-way to determine who would advance to the Knockouts title match at Rebellion. James joined commentary for the bout and was very enthusiastic while watching the action unfold.
Each woman had a chance to shine in the hard-hitting affair, but Purrazzo secured the victory when she dropped Shaw with the Queen’s Gambit for the three-count.
As a result, Purrazzo will now battle Jordynne Grace for the Knockouts World Championship at Rebellion. If Mickie James is medically cleared by April 16, she will be able to defend her title against both of her former rivals in a three-way.
