A retirement ceremony for Jazz will take place this Thursday on Impact.
The company announced the retirement ceremony tonight on social media. Jazz lost to Deonna Purrazzo on the Hardcore Justice event that aired on Impact Plus this past Saturday, with Purazzo pinning Jazz with the Queen’s Gambit to retain the Knockouts title. Per the stipulations, Jazz now has to retire from in-ring competition.
Jazz started to appear as a regular in Impact Wrestling starting last fall, when she was revealed as Jordynne Grace’s tag team partner in a tournament to crown new Knockouts Tag Team Champions. They were eliminated in the second round, but later teamed up to face the eventual winners of the tournament, Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz, at Sacrifice last month. They were unsuccessful in winning the Knockouts Tag Team titles.
This coming Thursday’s show will have the fallout from Hardcore Justice. It will also feature a press conference between AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and Impact World Champion Rich Swann ahead of their title for title match at Rebellion on April 25.
