Full lineup set for Impact Knockouts Knockdown tournament


The full lineup is set for Impact Wrestling's Knockouts Knockdown tournament.

Impact Wrestling announced today that Brandi Lauren will be taking part in the Knockouts Knockdown tournament. She's the eighth and final entrant to be confirmed, joining Mercedes Martinez, Lady Frost, Renee Michelle, Chelsea Green, Tasha Steelz, Jamie Senegal, and Rachael Ellering.

The bracket for the tournament has yet to be revealed.

"The eighth and final entrant in the Knockouts Knockdown Tournament at IMPACT’s returning all-Knockout event is the bone-chilling Undead Bridesmaid, Brandi Lauren," Impact Wrestling wrote. "As her search for souls continues, Lauren will also look to bring gold to the terrifying trio alongside Su Yung and Kimber Lee."

Lauren was released by WWE during a round of NXT roster cuts this May.

The winner of the Knockouts Knockdown tournament will get a future shot at Impact's Knockouts Championship, which is currently held by Deonna Purrazzo.

The tournament will air on Impact's Knockouts Knockdown special this Saturday. The special begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time and will stream on Impact Plus and for subscribers to Impact Ultimate Insiders on YouTube.

Purrazzo is defending her Knockouts title against a mystery opponent at Knockouts Knockdown. Here's the updated card for the show:

  • Eight-woman, one-night Knockouts Knockdown tournament (Mercedes Martinez, Lady Frost, Renee Michelle, Chelsea Green, Tasha Steelz, Jamie Senegal, Rachael Ellering, and Brandi Lauren)
  • Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo defends against an opponent to be announced
