Tensions are heating up just 24 hours before Bound For Glory.
During the final IMPACT before their marquee pay-per-view, Mia Yim defeated Gisele Shaw in singles competition. Mickie James was on commentary for the bout and entered the ring post-match to stare down what could be her final opponent on Friday.
Tasha Steelz attacked Killer Kelly during a backstage vignette, which lead to confirmation that Steelz, Kelly, and Savannah Evans are all entering the 20-person Call Your Shot gauntlet match. Gisele Shaw was previously the only Knockout confirmed.
Jessicka and Taya Valkyrie teamed up to win a squash match over Johnny Swinger’s Swingerellas. Afterward, VXT told Gia Miller in a backstage interview that Jessicka is repulsive. The champions are confident heading into Friday night.
To cap off the night, Masha Slamovich and Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace met face-to-face for a contract signing. Slamovich initially said nothing and signed the dotted line. Grace put herself over, making it known to her undefeated challenger that she is IMPACT’s first-ever triple crown Knockout. Masha concluded with, “Masha’s gonna kill you.” From there, she flipped the table onto Grace and threw punches. Grace almost landed the muscle buster, but Slamovich hoisted the champ up and put her through the table with Snow Plow.
