Before the Impact, Lady Frost defeated Alisha Edwards and gained yet another victory. Even with that victory, celebration time is sometimes cut short. After the match, The Quintessential Diva, Gisele Shaw, appeared and made her presence known. Shaw later caught up with Gia Miller and announced her IMPACT Wrestling in-ring debut. She will go one on one with Lady Frost next week in the Impact Zone.
We briefly saw the Knockouts World Tag Team Champions, The IInspiration as Kaleb with a K assisted them in their photoshoot. Madison Rayne quickly interrupted and was left just as confused as everyone else.
“STOP! Let me remind you of one thing Kaleb: you don’t work for The IInspiration, you work for The Influence! Got it?”
Are we going to see Kaleb leave The Influence or even get put out of the group when Tenille Dashwood returns? Only time will tell if Rayne and Dashwood finally get in the ring with The IInspiration and get their opportunity at No Surrender. Speaking of No Surrender, former Digital Media Champion, Jordynne Grace was granted her rematch against current champion, Matt Cardona, at No Surrender. The two will face off next Saturday live on IMPACT Plus and it is safe to say Grace is looking for her revenge.
Current ROH Women’s World Champion and AAA Reina de Reinas Champion, Deonna Purrazzo, issued an open challenge last week. The challenge was open to any title to anyone who felt brave enough to get inside the ring with The Virtuosa. It was Santana Garrett that answered that challenge and chose the ROH Women’s World Championship. The Virtuosa retained while allowing her legacy as champ champ to continue on, for now. Questions around who will be Purrazzo’s next opponent quickly circulate around the Knockouts division and the options continue to grow.
Knockouts World Champion, Mickie James, faced off with her long-time friend, Chelsea Green, in a non-title match. The current number one contender, Tasha Steelz, watched on commentary and waited for her moment. The match was interrupted by Savannah Evans and Tasha Steelz who did not seem to enjoy the showing too much. From trash being thrown to trips and falls, the chaos these four women have caused over the weeks has finally come to a head. Next week, James and Green will team up to face off against the dominating force of Evans and Steelz.
