#IMPACTRecap A Look Back At Hard To Kill 2023

Updated: Aug 2, 2023

Before we get into tonight’s action, let us revisit Hard To Kill 2023.

Mickie James defeats Jordynne Grace

This is another monumental moment for IMPACT! Wrestling and the Knockouts division. In our main event for Hard To Kill, the Knockouts do it again.

In one corner, Mickie James. A key component to the growth of women’s wrestling. In addition, a trailblazer around the world and the one everyone wants to face. Over the years, James becomes the blueprint of longevity within such a cutthroat business.

In the other corner, Jordynne Grace. The toughest and the first-ever triple crown Knockout. In addition, Grace is the first-ever Digital Media Champion and the first-ever Queen of the Mountain. Nevertheless, this reign proves her dominance and power over the division.


In the end, Mickie James does exactly what she said she would do in her last rodeo. James defeats Grace, becoming the IMPACT! Knockouts World Champion yet again.

For me, this match is overwhelming. Being able to witness such a historic moment will forever be embedded in my mind. The atmosphere in that building was like no other.

Here at WWT, we want to give Mickie James a huge congratulations on this victory and on such an outstanding career. Thank you for your support and for allowing us to share these moments with you.

You will forever shine a light on women’s wrestling and we will forever be grateful for that.

Thank You, Mickie James!

Masha Slamovich defeats Deonna Purrazzo, Taylor Wilde & Killer Kelly 

And now, we must find an opponent for the champion. Former champions Deonna Purrazzo and Taylor Wilde compete against Masha Slamovich and Killer Kelly in a four-way match for the number one contender spot. In the end, it is Masha Slamovich who picks up the win.

Will we see Slamovich take her turn at the new champion tonight? Let us know what you think over on our Twitter @WWTalkPod. Join #TheSaltShakkas tonight at 11:30 PM CST for our weekly IMPACT! post-show.

Stream live on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook Live.
