The Iinspiration (formerly The Iiconics) not only debut at IMPACT’s Bound for Glory, but they challenge tag titles.
IMPACT Wrestling has announced that not only will The Iinspiration (formerly known as The Iiconics) debut for The Wrestling Company and Bound For Glory, but that they will fight for the Knockouts Tag Team Championships.
In a big announcement to promote their pay-per-view on October 23, IMPACT’s social media account wrote: “BREAKING: @FearHavok and @WeAreRosemary will defend the Knockouts Tag Team titles against @CassieLee and @JessicaMcKay at #BoundForGlory on October 23 at @samstownlv in Las Vegas! ”
On the official promotion website, the match’s promotional writing offered a bit more information:
“The Inspiration is coming to Bound For Glory – and they’re coming for the Knockouts Tag Team Championships! In the closing moments of Knockouts Knockdown, we learned that Cassie Lee and Jessica McKay will be making their IMPACT debut at Bound For Glory. We can now confirm. that The Inspiration will take part in IMPACT Wrestling’s biggest event of the year as they challenge Decay for the Knockouts Tag Team Championships! “
This is important to the former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions who seemed to have been forgotten when the duo went their separate ways and then fired as part of a series of WWE budget cuts. If they could make their pay-per-view debut and win the titles, that would be a major signal that the team is back. IMPACT added, “Having held tag team gold in the past, it’s no surprise that The Inspiration has set itself the goal of capturing the Knockouts tag team titles.”
Did IMPACT jump the gun?
Some of the comments on the wrestling promotion post indicate that the team is leaping the line in a major way. While it’s not uncommon, getting a tag team title opportunity when you start out is pretty rare. Some suggest it sends a less than stellar message to the squad roster. Not only that, but Tenille has been working with IMPACT for quite some time now and seems to be overlooked.
Part of the problem could be a lack of challengers. What do you think? Is it too early to let a whole new team fight for a major league?
Becky Lynch explained why the story between her and Bianca Belair is going exactly as planned, even though her heel turn was a last minute decision.
