Originally scheduled for Hard to Kill, the Impact Knockouts Tag Team title match between champions The IInspiration and challengers The Influence now has a new date: Thursday, January 27th.

The new date was announced during a backstage promo segment on Thursday's Impact on AXS. It will be taped next weekend when Impact runs two TV tapings in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The match was scratched the day before the Hard to Kill pay-per-view due to close contact COVID-19 exposure by either Cassie Lee or Jessica McKay (seen above).

After losing in their first shot at the titles at September's Knockouts Knockdown, Tenille Dashwood and Madison Rayne defeated Jordynne Grace and Rachael Ellering on TV to earn another title shot.

Lee and McKay have defended the gold once since winning it in their Impact debut over Decay at October's Bound for Glory. They defended it against Decay at November's Turning Point.

The two teams had briefly aligned on a recent episode of Impact, but lost in an eight-person intergender tag team match to Decay that began their dissention.
