Savannah Evans has been selected as Mickie James‘ first opponent in an IMPACT ring in six years. The two are set to collide next week.
James and Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo were instructed by Gail Kim that they will each decide an opponent for one another in a ‘Pick Your Poison’ Match. James picked Masha Slamovich for Purrazzo who she successfully defeated at Knockouts Knockdown over the weekend. Now, Purrazzo has chosen one of the newest yet threatening Knockouts – Savannah Evans.
Prior to Purrazzo naming Evans as Mickie’s opponent, Evans took on Lady Frost and came out with a dominant victory. After delivering a clothesline to Frost, Evans hits a full nelson slam to get the pin.
Decay was in a backstage segment with Gail Kim later on this week’s show. A letter was delivered to Gail from The IInspiration, Cassie Lee and Jessie McKay discuss their upcoming debut at Bound for Glory as they will be facing Decay for the Knockouts Tag Team Titles. In the letter, Lee and McKay stated that their upcoming title match is “much deserved and hard earned.”
Lastly, as for the new IMPACT Digital Media Championship, there will be two more first-round matches. The title is an intergender title and so far to advance are John Skyler, Crazzy Steve, Fallah Bahh, and Jordynne Grace. Two more women will make it to the title match after their first-round match-ups.
Alisha will be taking on Tenille Dashwood while Chelsea Green faces Madison Rayne. The two winners in these matches will join a six-person match at Bound for Glory with the aforementioned names.
