Impact Wrestling has new Knockouts Tag Team Champions as The Coven defeated the Death Dollz, ending the Dollz’ record-breaking title reign.
KiLynn King & Taylor Wilde defeated Taya Valkyrie & Rosemary Thursday when King hit her Kingdom Falls finisher on Valkyrie to get the win in a clean finish.
Valkyrie debuted on AEW Dynamite Wednesday and was announced as signing later that night, making Thursday’s result a given for those who hadn’t seen spoilers going into the show.
Valkyrie wasn’t written out of Impact on-screen which could come next week in a backstage segment.
The unit of Valkyrie, Rosemary & Jessicka held the gold for 142 days officially — the longest any all-female team held the titles and edging the Beautiful People by one day. Eric Young & ODB had the titles for 478 days in 2012-13.
Next week’s lineup will see a mixed tag team match with Tommy Dreamer & Knockouts Champion Mickie James against Bully Ray & Masha Slamovich. Dreamer will face Ray in a Busted Open (first blood) match at next Friday’s Sacrifice while James recently defeated Slamovich to retain the title.
After a brawl broke out during Thursday’s show, Deonna Purrazzo will take on Savannah Evans. Purrazzo faces Evans’ teammate Gisele Shaw at Sacrifice.
