The countdown to Hard to Kill is on for January 13 in Las Vegas. TNA is building a solid card, and the latest reveal is the participants for the Knockouts Ultimate X match.
The list includes Gisele Shaw, Xia Brookside, Jody Threat, Tasha Steelz, Alisha Edwards, and Dani Luna.
Shaw is the Quintessential Diva on the cusp of a breakout moment, and this match could be catalyst to getting over the hump in TNA. Brookside is the daughter of Robbie Brookside. She spent time in NXT UK and was also a competitor in the WWE Mae Young Classic for 2018. Threat is a rambunctious powerhouse with high potential. She would be a popular pick as a dark horse to win. Steelz is a former Knockouts champion and the winner of the first Knockouts Ultimate X. The Boricua Badass is the favorite to win. Edwards has been supporting husband Eddie Edwards, and now she is branching out to be more active lately. Luna is a member of Subculture and wrestled in NXT UK.
The Ultimate X concept is an invention to showcase the amazing athleticism of the X Division. A title belt or an X symbol hang above the ring from cables crossing into an X in the center. The idea is to straddle the cables to unhook the prize for victory. In this year’s case, a Knockouts title shot is up for grabs.
To get a glimpse of the action, enjoy the first Knockouts Ultimate X match from 2022 featuring Tasha Steelz, Alisha Edwards, Chelsea Green, Jordynne Grace, Lady Frost, and Rosemary.
