Knockouts Title Match: Tessa Blanchard vs Faby Apache
Faby dominates the early minutes of the match, but Tessa uses an opening as Faby makes a mistake to tie her up in the ropes and nail her, then turn her inside out with a backdrop suplex. Faby catches Tessa out of nowhere with an Indian deatlock, and Tessa escapes, but Faby drills her with a kick to the face and hits her implant Jay Driller for 2. Faby looks shocked that Tessa kicked out, so she takes her to the top rope, but Tessa shoves Faby off and hits a top rope Codebreaker for 2. Tessa hits the hammerlock DDT and gets the win.
Winner: Tessa Blanchard
Tessa gets a mic after the match to reaffirm that she is, indeed, the Knockouts Champion, and assert that she has run through the entire Impact locker room, and has now beaten the best in Mexico, and that makes her the best wrestler and the best athlete in professional wrestling. She is undeniable, and the one and only diamond of the Knockouts division. Taya Valkyrie appears on the screen and cuts a promo on Tessa in Spanish, and Tessa may think she’s the best, but she can’t say that until they face off. Taya proposes that they fight for the Knockouts Title at Bound For Glory.
Tessa Blanchard is backstage, saying Taya Valkyrie just happened to disappear from Impact when she showed up, and now she magically shows up and makes a brave challenge from thousands of miles away. And if Taya wants to call her a b****, she’ll show her one at bound For Glory.
