Knockouts Championship Announced for Slammiversary

Knockouts Championship Announced for Slammiversary
Impact Wrestling announced that Jordynne Grace will defend her Knockouts Championship against Deonna Purrazzo at Slammiversary on July 18th.

After being viciously attacked two straight weeks in a row, Jordynne Grace will finally get her revenge on Purrazzo.

Purrazzo first stood toe-to-toe against Grace after her initial debut earlier this month. Grace, who successfully defended her championship against the former champion, Taya Valkyrie, found herself on the receiving end of a Purrazzo's deadly Fujiwara armbar, after her match.

From there, Grace fell under Purrazzo's spell once more, after Purrazzo snuck up from behind during Grace's interview last week, and and locked in another Fujiwara armbar.

Furious about Purrazzo's behavior, Grace confronted Purrazzo during her interview on Busted Open, which was shown on this week's episode. After they exchanged some harsh words amongst each other, Grace said that she'd gladly put her title on the line against her.

Here is the updated card for Slammiversary thus far:

Impact World Championship
Tessa Blanchard (c) vs. Ace Austin vs. Eddie Edwards vs. Trey Miguel

Knockouts Championship
Jordynne Grace (c) vs. Deonna Purrazzo

Below is Grace and Purrazzo's exchange on Busted Open, as well as additional clips from Purrazzo's debut match against Alisha Edwards from this week.
