Former WWE NXT Talent To Debut In IMPACT Wrestling

Steph De Lander heading to IMPACT Wrestling

A former WWE NXT talent will make their IMPACT Wrestling debut on next week's show. 

IMPACT have announced that Steph De Lander - who performed as Persia Pirotta in WWE - will face former Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace on February 9. The match was made official after Grace offered to face De Lander upon finding out she would be coming to IMPACT. 

De Lander had a brief run in WWE until her release in April 2022, spending much of her time in the promotion as Indi Hartwell's best friend.

Also announced for next week's IMPACT is Joe Hendry vs. Matt Cardona for the IMPACT Digital Media Championship. The match was made official after Hendry embarrassed Cardona and Brian Myers by referring to them as Edge's b*tches last week. Cardona responded with a poorly put-together rap on February 2. 

Mickie James will also team with Tommy Dreamer to take on The Good Hands, while the first qualifying matches for the Four-Way Number One Contender's Match at No Surrender will take place next week too. 

Check out the full IMPACT lineup below:

  • Jordynne Grace vs. Steph De Lander
  • Joe Hendry (c) vs. Matt Cardona - Digital Media Championship
  • Tommy Dreamer & Mickie James vs. The Good Hands
  • Brian Myers vs. Dirty Dango - Number One Contender's Four-Way Qualifier
  • PCO vs. Shera - Number One Contender's Four-Way Qualifier
  • Killer Kelly & Taylor Wilde vs. The Death Dollz
