Former Knockouts champ signs new multi-year deal with Impact

Last year, Jordynne Grace ended the longest Knockouts title reign in history when she beat Taya Valkyrie (now NXT’s Franky Monet).

She had a nice run atop Impact’s Women’s division, and has remained on television since dropping the belt to Deonna Purrazzo at Slammiversary last summer.

A couple weeks back at the Rebellion PPV, she and Rachael Ellering won the Knockouts Tag Team championship.

Now, Grace has revealed she’d re-upped with the company on a new multi-year contract.

As for why she’s not testing the waters of, say, AEW or NXT? In The PWI Podcast interview where she broke the news, Grace said:

“I still feel like there’s more for me to do here. I feel like there’s a lot of potential for growth. And I feel like at Impact, I just have opportunities to do things that I might not be able to do at other companies. So that’s one of the main reasons that I decided to stick around.”

Grace doesn’t mention “The Forbidden Door”, and we haven’t seen any Knockouts mix it up on Dynamite yet. But that could be a possibility over the course of this new contract. Fans have also speculated about Jordynne showing up in Ring of Honor’s Women’s Championship Tournament, especially since her husband Jonathan Gresham would figure to have some pull at ROH.

We’ll see about all that. For now, if you definitely want to see Jordynne Grace throw down, Impact is your hook up.
