Impact Wrestling has announced that Jordynne Grace will challenge Taya Valkyrie for the Knockouts Championship at Hard To Kill. The promotion’s next PPV will emanate from Dallas, Texas on January 12th, 2019.
Grace defeated Taya Valkyrie and John E. Bravo in a handicap match on the November 19th edition of Impact Wrestling, earning her top contender spot in the Knockouts division. She also challenged Taya for the championship unsuccessfully at the Rebellion PPV from Toronto this spring.
Grace will be attempting to end the longest single reign of the Knockouts championship in history. As of this writing, Taya’s title reign is at 329 days. Provided she doesn’t lose the title between now and the PPV, Taya will enter Hard to Kill as the only wrestler to ever hold the Knockouts title for over a year. She originally won the title on January 6th, 2019 at Homecoming.

The main event for Hard to Kill was confirmed 2 weeks ago on Impact when Tessa Blanchard won a gauntlet match to earn the #1 contendership to Sami Callihan’s world title. Callihan and Blanchard have gone one-on-one twice before with Sami coming out the winner both times.
