Jazz set for Impact Knockouts Tag Team title tournament


Former WWE and NWA Women's Champion Jazz is taking part in Impact Wrestling's Knockouts Tag Team title tournament.

On tonight's episode of Impact, it was announced that Jazz will make her Impact Wrestling in-ring debut as Jordynne Grace's partner in the Knockouts Tag Team title tournament. They're facing Killer Kelly & Renee Michelle in a first round match on Impact next Tuesday. The winning team will advance to face Havok & Nevaeh in the semifinals of the tournament.

There had been a teaser on last week's Impact where Grace revealed she would be teaming with someone who recently said they were retiring. Jazz did an interview on tonight's show and said she wants to end her career on top by winning the Knockouts Tag Team titles.

Jazz had announced her retirement during an interview with Chris Van Vliet last month: "Honestly, I just had my last match this past Sunday. I am done in the ring. I was going to do a whole tour in 2020, but with the pandemic happening, that screwed everything up. I’ve been having issues with my knees and my back and a lot more issues physically, mentally and emotionally. That’s why I had to forfeit the NWA title. I have two beautiful daughters and I have to focus on them right now."

Deonna Purrazzo & Kimber Lee vs. Taya Valkyrie & Rosemary is the only other remaining first round match in the Knockouts Tag Team title tournament. The team that wins that match will advance to face Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz in the semifinals.

The finals of the Knockouts Tag Team title tournament are taking place at Impact's Hard to Kill pay-per-view on Saturday, January 16.
