It’s been revealed that Taya Valkyrie is set to defend her Impact Knockouts Championship at Slammiversary XVII on July 7. This defense will take place in a four-way Monster’s Ball match. It will also involve Rosemary, Su Yung, and the returning Havok.
Recently Havok returned to IMPACT Wrestling and has aligned herself with Yung and Father James Mitchell. The numbers game in this match may be in her favor. Upon her return, she attacked both Valkyrie and Rosemary.
This will be the first time a four-way match involving women will occur in a Monster’s Ball match. The only other women to ever perform in this style match-up is Taylor Wilde, Daffney, and Jade. Rosemary is the only woman going into this match with experience as she defeated Jade in 2017.
A Monster’s Ball match is essentially a no disqualification, hardcore street fight where the fall of the match has to take place inside the ring. During its inception and up until the sixth one in 2007 the preface of this bout was that its competitors were concealed alone in a locked room. There they would be without light, food, or water for 24 hours. This rule has been a distant memory.
All four participants are no stranger to hardcore stipulations so this match should not be on to miss.
Who do you think will walk out of Slammiversary XVII as Knockouts Champion? Will Taya Valkyrie be able to retain under these conditions? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section!!
