The reigning IMPACT Knockouts Tag Team Champions Cassie Lee & Jessica McKay have been pulled from tomorrow night’s (January 8) IMPACT Hard to Kill event.
The IInspiration were set to defend their Knockouts Tag Team Championship against Tenille Dashwood & Madison Rayne, but the match will no longer be happening due to COVID-19 exposure.
IMPACT posted the following statement on their website:
Jessica McKay & Cassie Lee to self-isolate after exposure to COVID
(January 7, 2022) – The IInspiration, Jessica McKay and Cassie Lee, will not be defending their Knockouts World Tag-Team Championship at IMPACT Wrestling’s HARD TO KILL Pay-Per-View event tomorrow night.
The champions informed IMPACT Wrestling that they have been in close contact with an individual who shortly thereafter tested positive for COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution and with the health of their peers in mind, Jessica and Cassie will self-isolate over the weekend.
IMPACT Executive Vice-President Scott D’Amore said: “IMPACT’s COVID protocols are in place to keep our talent roster, staff and fans safe. I am sure the fans will share The IInspiration’s and my disappointment that they won’t be in action at tomorrow’s stacked HARD TO KILL event, but we look forward to their return soon.”
The annual HARD TO KILL event, sponsored by THE FREE FALL movie, takes place in Dallas at 8pmET/5pmPT and is available on cable & satellite providers in North America and worldwide via FITE. Order NOW: https://www.fite.tv/watch/hard-to-kill-2022/2pafo/
