Impact Wrestling recently announced that the Knockouts Tag Team Championship was to be reintroduced to the promotion after an absence of seven years.
The new champions are to be introduced by means of an eight team tournament and last night on their Turning Point event, the brackets were announced.
The tournament, which will feature a mixture of Impact regulars and guest stars will kick off on this Tuesday’s episode of Impact on AXS.
The final will take place on the ‘Hard To Kill’ PPV on January 16th. The brackets are as follows:
– Tenille Dashwood & Alisha vs. Jessicka Havoc & Nevaeh
– Killer Kelly & Renee Michelle vs. Jordynne Grace & A Mystery Partner
– Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz vs. Ashley Vox & Delmi Exo
– Deonna Purrazzo & Kimber Lee vs. Taya Valkyrie & Rosemary
Of the non-roster members, a few names may be familiar to fans.
Killer Kelly has made appearances over the last year on WWE’s NXT UK brand. Her partner, Renee Michelle is the wife of former Impact star and current NXT standout Drake Maverick. She made numerous appearances alongside her husband during his hilarious 24/7 title storyline.
The pick of the first round ties is easily Purrazzo and Lee facing Rosemary and Valkyrie. The winner of that match has to be favoured to at least reach the final.
