Mickie James defeated longtime champion Deonna Purrazzo at IMPACT Wrestling’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view event in October to claim her fourth Knockouts Championship.
Meanwhile, Kiera Hogan was a mainstay on IMPACT Wrestling television herself, signing with the company in 2016 and won the Knockouts Tag Team Titles on two occasions alongside Tasha Steelz. However, she recently left the company and signed with AEW this past August. Despite signing with AEW, Hogan’s agreement allowed her to continue making appearances for the NWA. Hogan and James previously squared off on the October 26 episode of NWA Powerrr, with the match being taped at NWA 73 weekend in St Louis in August.
