IMPACT! has previously announced a first for the company as the Knockouts will be participating in an Ultimate X match this January at Hard to Kill. Now, we know who the six women are who will be involved.
After making her official debut as a signed Knockout on this week’s BTI, Lady Frost was congratulated by Scott D’Amore before Gail Kim announced her as the first Knockout to be in the Ultimate X match. Kim would go on to confirm the other competitors will be, Tasha Steelz, Rachael Ellering, Digital Media Champion Jordynne Grace, Chelsea Green, and Rosemary.
Lady Frost successfully defeated Kimber Lee on BTI after delivering her ever-impressive corkscrew moonsault.
One woman who was not placed in the Ultimate X match was Alisha who has been working hard to get her spot. She took to her social media after the participants were announced to say she is disappointed but is also showing support for the Knockouts who are involved in the history-making match.
Also on this week’s IMPACT!, the following two matches took place.
Both Mickie James and Deonna Purrazzo are looking to gain momentum heading into their rematch next month. This time, Purrazzo edged out the win. After Chris Sabin hits a dropkick to Matthew Rehwoldt, he tags in James. James and Purrazzo meet head-on in a brawl which then leads to Purrazzo countering Cradle Shock by Sabin. With some added help from Rehwoldt, it would be Purrazzo who gets the pin on the champion to get the win for her team and a win in her first match since she lost the title to James at Bound for Glory.
Decay defeated The IInspiration & The Influence
The partnership between the Knockouts World Tag Team Champions The IInspiration and The Influence may not have been the match made in heaven as originally thought. The two teams who became one during their fight against Decay came up short. After Crazzy Steve bites the head of Madison Rayne, Black Taurus tossed Tenille Dashwood over the top onto Kaleb with a K on the outside. Rayne was upset that neither member of The IInspiration helped out Dashwood. Rosemary picked up the win for Decay as she pinned Dashwood after delivering a spear.
