Jordynne Grace Wants To Make IMPACT One Of The Top Companies Again IMPACT Wrestling

New IMPACT Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace has set a goal to make the promotion one of the top companies again.

Grace defeated Tasha Steelz, Deonna Purrazzo, Chelsea Green and Mia Yim in the first-ever Queen of the Mountain Match to win the gold at Slammiversary on June 19.

Speaking with Denise Salcedo, the new champion reflected on her first run with the title during the pandemic.

She said:

“So 2020 was was a difficult time period for me to be Knockouts Champion, because I won it and then basically, immediately, the pandemic happened. So I did a lot of my title defenses, and I lost the title with no fans. I feel like that almost wasn’t really fair to me as a champion to have to go through that. It’s really been an uphill battle to get back to this title. I feel like the only thing that I could do to get me back to that title was to reinvent myself, I think I’ve done that. I started leaning into powerlifting a lot more. The less I thought about the Knockouts Title, the more I feel like they wanted to give me the opportunity again, so I feel like that was that was one of those things. So I just kept focusing on myself. I was just like, don’t worry about who has the title, don’t worry about opportunities anybody else is getting because all you can do is focus on yourself and getting better. I feel like that has finally paid off.”

Grace continued on to discuss the importance of performing in front of an audience as well as wanting to get more eyes on IMPACT Wrestling, saying:

“I would like to defend it in front of a crowd for one that’s, that’s, that’s my first go. I want to bring more eyes to the Knockouts division, I feel like IMPACT in general because I feel like we put out such an incredible product and the women are given more opportunities here than at any other promotion. I feel like fans need to start watching IMPACT Wrestling and seeing these things. A lot of people still have it in their head, you know, back in the day, they mess things up a little bit. But it’s a completely new crew. Now, everything is different. I think that we need to be given that opportunity, again, to be one of the top companies. We need more eyes on us. I think that’s one of my biggest goals as champion.”

IMPACT Wrestling announced that their next pay-per-view, Bound For Glory will take place on the same date as WWE Extreme Rules in October.
