Just a few days ahead of her return to WWE in the women's Royal Rumble, Knockouts Champion Mickie James will deliver a "State of the Knockouts" address on Thursday's Impact Wrestling.

In recent weeks, James has been building toward an eventual clash with top contender Tasha Steelz after she won the first-ever women's Ultimate X match at this month's Hard to Kill.

After losing to Josh Alexander at Hard to Kill, JONAH will look for his second straight win when he faces Johnny Swinger.

Also announced for the show: Chris Bey vs. Jake Something in a clash of X-Division talents and Blake Christian vs. Laredo Kid on the Before The Impact pre-show match.

The new additions join the already announced Knockouts Tag Team title match between champions The IInspiration and The Influence. However, it will be Kaleb with a K filling in for Tenille Dashwood to team with Madison Rayne.

This was originally slated for Hard to Kill, but was postponed after one of the champions came in close contact with someone that had COVID-19.

Here's a look at the lineup:

  • Knockouts Tag Team Champions The IInspiration vs. The Influence title match
  • Mickie James "State of the Knockouts" address
  • JONAH vs. Johnny Swinger
  • Chris Bey vs. Jake Something
  • BTI pre-show: Blake Christian vs. Laredo Kid
