Jordynne Grace Wins IMPACT Knockouts Title in First Queen of the Mountain Match
The match was chaotic and saw enforcer Mickie James get involved multiple times. Just prior to Grace winning the match, Deonna Purrazzo and Chelsea Green were tossed by Mia Yim from the top of a ladder in the ring through two tables on the arena floor.
Grace became eligible to win late in the match following picking up a pinfall on Mia Yim that was a team pin with former champion Tasha Steelz. She then pinned Steelz sending her to the penalty box where she joined Mia Yim. With Green and Purrazzo taken out from the ladder fall, the path to victory was cleared for Grace.
With this win Grace makes history as the first-ever “Queen of the Mountain”. This second reign as Knockouts Champion adds to her resume as she is also a former Knockouts Tag Team Champion, and the first-ever Digital Media Champion.
The match was not without controversy as Mickie James took out some personal history on Chelsea Green and at one point handed to title to Mia Yim for her to climb the ladder with. Although Yim was not victorious, James let her personal feelings for the other participants in the match cloud her judgement as guest enforcer.
