Jordynne Grace

Impact Wrestling is no stranger to intergender competition, and believe it or not neither is Heath. While it wasn’t a lengthy match, he actually faced off with Lita back in 2012 during a period where Heath was getting annihilated by legends on a weekly basis.

On top of that, after losing the Knockouts Championship at Slammiversary, Jordynne Grace could certainly be looking to transition towards a future shot at the X-Division Championship or Impact World Championship. Taking on Heath, especially once he’s been established as a threat against a name like Shamrock, would be big for both of them.

While Heath isn’t the biggest man in wrestling, he’s 6′ 2” and looks more jacked than ever. This would give Grace an opportunity to showcase her power, while giving Heath a unique matchup we never could’ve seen during his tenure in WWE.

Tommy Dreamer

Even at 49 years old, The Innovator of Violence still lives and breathes hardcore wrestling. At Slammiversary, he was still going to war with thumbtacks and trashcans galore.

As for Heath, we’ve never really gotten to see a truly hardcore side of him. Sure, we’ve seen glimpses, but WWE hardcore wrestling (or Extreme Rules) just doesn’t compare to what can be seen in Impact Wrestling and elsewhere.

On top of that, we’d surely see Heath’s good buddy Rhino coaching him along the way to prepare for an environment like this. At 37 years old, Heath would have the chance here to showcase a toughness and grit that’s been kept hidden, but we all know he has it.
