The September 15 edition of IMPACT marked an eventful night for the Knockouts division.
In the first Knockouts match of the night, Killer Kelly took on Alisha Edwards with Tasha Steelz watching from commentary. Kelly wins a brief match by using the Killer Clutch. Post-match, Kelly and Steelz had a heated confrontation in the center of the ring to officially set up a match at Victory Road.
Mickie James defeated Texas native Hyan in the second match of The Last Rodeo. Hyan had a nice showing in her IMPACT debut, but she was no match for Hardcore Country. After, Gisele Shaw made her way to the ring and posed in front of Mickie. Gisele grabbed a mic and told Mickie that her time is up. Shaw challenged Mickie to a match at Victory Road, and it’s on.
During a backstage segment, it was revealed that Max The Impaler will make their IMPACT Wrestling debut at Victory Road as Jordynne Grace‘s challenger for the Knockouts World Championship. Zicky Dice joked about “Masha’s gonna kill you” to Jordynne, which prompted Grace to challenge Dice to a match next week.
Mia Yim looks to make more history as she competes in the returning Triple Threat Revolver at Victory Road. The winner of the eight-person match will move on to challenge for the X-Division Championship at Bound For Glory.
Elsewhere in the Knockouts division, Taya Valkyrie told Rosemary backstage that she’s the only one who has a problem with “fun” Jessicka. Rosemary said that Jessicka still needs to prove herself. Taya declared she has an idea, but she did not elaborate. Perhaps a tag match is coming soon?
