Knockouts World Championship match at Rebellion is taking shape.
With the current IMPACT Knockouts World Champion Mickie James being sidelined with a rib injury, it was decided that the winner of Deonna Purrazzo versus Gisele Shaw versus Masha Slamovich versus Miyu Yamashita at IMPACT x NJPW Multiverse United would be added to the Knockouts World Title match at Rebellion.
Jordynne Grace already set herself up to be in a championship match against Mickie James. Purrazzo is now added to the bout and if Mickie is not cleared by Rebellion, Grace and Purrazzo will go one-on-one but if James it good to go, it’ll be a three-way.
