Impact Wrestling Bringing Back Knockouts Tag Team Titles
After a long absence...
It was announced by Madison Rayne during Impact Wrestling's Bound For Glory pay-per-view on Saturday that the promotion would be bringing back the Knockouts Tag Team titles.
The first champions of the belts' new era will be crowned at Impact's Hard to Kill pay-per-view in January.
The titles were first established in 2009. The inaugural champions were Taylor Wilde and Sarah Stock, who won an eight-team tournament final over Rayne and Velvet Sky at the No Surrender pay-per-view that year.
Notable figures to hold the titles include Rosita (Zelina Vega), Awesome Kong, Gail Kim, and all the members of The Beautiful People, among others.
The final champions were the intergender duo of ODB and Eric Young, who defeated Rayne and Kim in March of 2012 to win the belts. The titles were finally deactivated in June 2013, after a long period of inactivity.
Impact Wrestling's Hard to Kill takes place on Saturday night, January 16. The location has not been confirmed, but Skyway Studios in Nashville seems to be the most likely option, as Impact has been filming there throughout the COVID era.
