Jordynne Grace Reveals How The Inaugural Queen Of The Mountain Match Came Together IMPACT Wrestling

New IMPACT Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace has revealed how the inaugural Queen of the Mountain Match came together.

Grace defeated Tasha Steelz, Deonna Purrazzo, Chelsea Green and Mia Yim to capture the IMPACT Knockouts Championship for the second time at Slammiversary on June 19.

Speaking with Denise Salcedo, the IMPACT star discussed how it was putting together the first-time-ever matchup.

She said:

“Before the match, everybody was freaking out. I’ve never seen a group of girls that anxious before a match before. Even in the Ultimate X match, no one was that nervous. But I think it was because of A) there were the rules, and we had to think about who was in the box at a certain time and that was complicated in and of itself. Actually, something that we were told was gonna happen during the match, didn’t happen, which was that the timer was not on the titantron. {laughs} I think everybody was just so relieved that no one got hurt and it went as well as it did. Because everybody was doing these high-risk spots and I was like ‘I pray that I am in a position to catch people and that no one gets hurt.’ We did it, and I think we killed it.

“So we really had an uphill battle because A) in the first women’s anything there’s always so much pressure on the girls to do like an amazing job. 2) people already hate that kind of match {laughs} people were talking about how stupid it was, how complicated the rules were, so we really had two uphill battles to fight through. Watching everybody’s feedback and seeing that everybody really seemed to enjoy the match, I was over the moon about it, it could have not gone better for us.”

Jordynne Grace also discussed wanting to make IMPACT Wrestling one of the top companies in the business now that she is the new Knockouts Champion in this same interview.
