Deonna Purrazzo Wins Third Knockouts Title In IMPACT Rebellion Main Event

IMPACT Rebellion 2023 featured the crowning of a new world champion in the main event.

First, on the Countdown pre-show, The Death Dollz had their obligated Knockouts World Tag Team Championship rematch against The Coven. Death Dollz dictated the pace at first, but it wasn’t long until Rosemary was double teamed for several minutes. Jessicka made the hot tag and worked King briefly. Rosemary was close to winning, but Wilde snuck in a tag and pinned Rosemary to secure the victory.

Alisha Edwards attempted to help Eddie Edwards win his Last Rites match against PCO, but she ended up getting super kicked in the face by accident.

In the Hardcore War, Killer Kelly and Masha Slamovich both had their opportunities to shine. Kelly entered with a staple gun and took out several guys before stapling her own head. Slamovich entered after her and eventually flipped out of the ring with a trash can lid in hand.

Bully Ray held Kelly hostage at one point, but she bit his arm to break free. Kelly applied her Killer Clutch on Kenny King before Slamovich nailed her with Snow Plow. Dreamer hit Slamovich with a piledriver and eventually pinned Bully to win it for his team.

In the main event, Jordynne Grace and Deonna Purrazzo met in their first singles match since 2020 to crown a new Knockouts World Champion in the wake of Mickie James‘ rib injury. Grace leaned into her heel side throughout despite starting it off with a mutual handshake.

Regardless, Grace’s strength was displayed bell to bell, but Purrazzo countered with her technical prowess. A moonsault off the apron from The Virtuosa marked a change in control. Purrazzo focused on her submission game from there on and went on to land a quick Queen’s Gambit for the three-count.

Purrazzo embraced Grace after the match before celebrating with her third Knockouts title to send us home.
