Knockouts Tag Titles Return

I think its hard to argue that the Knockouts division isn’t one of the best in the world. Now with that in mind Impact has been slowly and quietly building up several impressive tag teams within their own division. From Taya Valkyrie and Rosemary to Havok and Nevaeh. There are several skilled tag teams in the division.

With nothing to do.

The titles were introduced in 2009 and spawned an 8 team tournament which led to their first champions Sarita and Taylor Wilde being crowned at No Surrender 2009. The titles were active over the next four years with 9 total reigns. The last reign saw ODB and Eric Young stripped of the title because Eric Young was a male performer. Yes, Impact did that. But as we have already spoken in this piece about how Eric Young might make his return at Slammiversary and have seen in the past that ODB is willing to make returns as needed. The question should be asked. Why can’t they show up with the titles, put them on the line, and lose?

If you’re worried about Eric looking weak in his debut by losing to a woman, you really shouldn’t be. Sammi Callihan is in the midst of the strongest booking of his career less than a year after being beaten by former World Champion Tessa Blanchard for the title.

With four teams currently in the division, you can set it up as a four-way tag match for the title, and then once the straps are on a team (ideally Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz) you can get to work signing more girls and more teams. Go visit Shimmer and see if the SeaStars want to come aboard and show off their brand of badassery to a larger audience.

At times in the last year and a few months since the Lucha Brothers and LAX left for AEW, you have had no clear tag division with only a few active teams. But they stuck with it and built up a division that can once again begin to position itself to be one to watch. So why not do the same with the ladies of Impact? Why not show the wrestling world how Women’s Tag Titles ought to be handled?
