A title match has been pulled from the Hard to Kill card due to COVID-19 exposure.
Impact Wrestling announced today that The IInspiration (Cassie Lee & Jessica McKay) will miss Hard to Kill due to being in close contact with someone who later tested positive for COVID-19. It was noted that, out of an abundance of caution and with the health of their co-workers in mind, Lee & McKay will self-isolate this weekend.
The IInspiration were scheduled to defend their Knockouts Tag Team titles against The Influence (Madison Rayne & Tenille Dashwood) at Saturday's pay-per-view.
Lee & McKay won the titles from Rosemary & Havok at Bound for Glory last October. The match was Lee & McKay's debut for Impact Wrestling.
Lee & McKay signed with Impact Wrestling after being released by WWE in April 2021.
“Impact's COVID protocols are in place to keep our talent roster, staff and fans safe," Impact Wrestling executive vice president Scott D'Amore said. "I am sure the fans will share The IInspiration’s and my disappointment that they won’t be in action at tomorrow’s stacked HARD TO KILL event, but we look forward to their return soon.”
