Welcome to your new home. The wrestling world has changed in a lot of ways as wrestling fans are now able to see almost every major promotion in the world if they choose to take the time to do so. That can offer some benefits to the wrestlers as fans can be more familiar with wrestlers arriving in a new company, which will be the case in a few weeks in an important spot.
The WWE Women’s Revolution has changed a lot of things in a good way for women’s wrestling. After spending years as a glorified side show, women’s wrestling has become far more prominent and important since the Revolution began. However, there were other wrestlers and promotions which did a lot for women’s wrestling before WWE with Impact wrestling near the top of the list. Now they are reviving the Knockouts Tag Team Titles in a tournament, which will include some former WWE talents.
During this weekend’s Turning Point event, Impact Wrestling revealed the brackets for the upcoming Knockouts Tag Team Titles tournament. Two former WWE names are included in the brackets and will be making their debuts for the company. First is Killer Kelly, who wrestled in NXT UK before leaving WWE in January. Second is Renee Michelle, a former Monday Night Raw personality, who never wrestled for WWE but was featured in Drake Maverick’s segments with R-Truth over the 24/7 Title. Michelle, who is married to Maverick, has wrestled on the independent circuit for several years. The two will be teaming together.
Here are the brackets:
Killer Kelly/Renee Michelle
Kiera Hogan/Tasha Steelz
Deonna Purrazzo/Kimber Lee
You’ll get used to them. Check out both of them wrestling elsewhere:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that often helps give a promotion a boost. Neither Kelly nor Michelle were major stars in WWE but maybe they can get a much bigger break in Impact Wrestling. That is the kind of thing that can give both of their careers a boost and maybe it can be what they have been needing. The tournament has some intrigue and hopefully it can live up to the hype.
Who else should Impact Wrestling bring in? Who will win the tournament? Let us know in the comments below.
