IMPACT has been building its Knockouts division and although not every woman’s contract status has been revealed, they have built themselves a nice tag team division. Former and longest-reigning Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie discussed the topic of bringing back the Knockouts Tag Titles.
This idea has been floating around lately and with Taylor Wilde‘s tease of coming back to wrestling, this idea may become a reality. The former TNA Knockout’s Tag Team Titles existed for nearly four years and the inaugural champions were Wilde and Sarita. Wilde just posted today that she isn’t returning the ring (right now) and she is launching her own podcast.
Valkyrie had the following to say while speaking on Wrestling Inc. Daily:
“This is the perfect time to bring back the Knockout’s Tag Team Title[s], to be honest. There are so many incredible pairings happening. Just watch what’s gonna be happening play out over the next few weeks, and you’re going to tweet at me and say, ‘You are right.'”
She continues, “I feel like Impact management has done an excellent job of making the women an important part of the show. This would be one more opportunity for us to shine. You see that in the way the Knockouts Championship has been carried by some of the most talented women in pro wrestling, including myself, and now we have more and more women joining our roster. I think this is the perfect next step in showcasing why we are the best women in the world,” said Valkyrie.
