Impact reveals start date for Knockouts Tag title tournament

Impact Wrestling has revealed a couple of additional details regarding their revival of the Knockouts Tag Team titles.

It was revealed last night that the tournament to crown new Knockouts Tag Team Champions will kick off on Impact in three weeks (Tuesday, November 17). It will be an eight-team tournament, though the teams for it have yet to be revealed.

There was a segment on last night’s Impact where Tasha Steelz & Kiera Hogan, Jessicka Havok & Neveah, Jordynne Grace, Alisha Edwards, and Tenille Dashwood wanted to know more about the return of the titles. Steelz & Hogan mocked Edwards for not having any friends, which led to Grace agreeing to team with Edwards against Steelz & Hogan later in the show. Steelz & Hogan got the win when Steelz rolled up Edwards. Steelz had moved out of the way of a charge and Edwards accidentally hit Grace. Grace and Edwards argued and shoved each other after the match and Grace walked out.

The announcement that the Knockouts Tag Team titles are returning was made at Bound for Glory this past Saturday. The tournament will play out on Impact, with the finals then being held at January’s Hard to Kill pay-per-view. Hard to Kill is taking place on Saturday, January 16.

The Knockouts Tag Team titles were first introduced in 2009 before being deactivated in 2013.
