Jordynne Grace looks to make history at IMPACT Wrestling’s Bound for Glory when she competes for the X Division Championship on October 24.
Jordynne Grace could make history by being the first woman to win the IMPACT Wrestling X Division Championship at Bound For Glory.
On the October 6 episode of IMPACT, Jordynne Grace appeared to win the X Division Championship with the help of Willie Mack. Mack held onto the title while current champion Rohit Raju held the other end through the ropes.
Grace rolled him up for the win. Mack helped fasten the title around Grace’s waist when the referee announced that the match wasn’t for the title. She still earned the win, just not the title.
At Bound for Glory, Grace will get an official shot at the X Division championship. She will take part in a six-way scramble match featuring Raju, Chris Bey, Trey Miguel, TJP, and Mack.
Jordynne Grace is one of Impact Wrestling’s best performers
Bound for Glory is IMPACT’s biggest pay-per-view of the year. It is the perfect time for a historic match to take place and for history to be made in crowning its first woman X Division champion. IMPACT has shown that they are open to giving women equal opportunities.
Sami Callihan and Tessa Blanchard had a months-long feud for the IMPACT World Championship. Blanchard eventually won the championship at Hard to Kill. The win was surrounded by controversy as the new champion had been called out for bullying and racism by other wrestlers. It soured many fans on what should have been one of wrestling’s biggest moments, especially for women.
IMPACT Wrestling has a chance to do that again with Grace. She is an incredible athlete and is one of the company’s best wrestlers, period. Her technical prowess is outstanding. The company clearly sees her as championship material as she won the Knockouts Championship in January. She held the title for six months.
Grace has also held multiple titles outside of IMPACT, including the Black Label Pro Heavyweight Championship, Battle Club Pro ICONS Championship, and PROGRESS World Women’s Championship.
She has plenty of experience with intergender wrestling as well. Grace was the only woman to participate in AEW’s Casino Battle Royale at Double or Nothing in 2019. She had a memorable spot where she showcased her strength by eliminating Brian Cage. Along with Cage, Grace has faced the likes of Orange Cassidy, Nick Gage, and Ethan Page.
Grace has the skillset, talent, and charisma to be a champion. The X Division is a great division and having her as part of that division would only make it stronger. She could have great individual matchups with the five men in this match. Hopefully, IMPACT would be encouraged to add other women to the division as well.
IMPACT Wrestling has the opportunity to make history again by crowning Grace as its first woman X Division champion. Having her as champion elevates the title to new heights and puts increased focus on an important title in the company. It also reinforces the idea that the best wrestler, regardless of gender, should be a champion.
