Jordynne Grace and Rachael Ellering have won the IMPACT Knockouts Tag Team Championship, defeating Fire N Flava at IMPACT Rebellion!
After unsuccessfully challenging Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz for the titles alongside Jazz for a second time, Grace would be attacked by the reigning Knockouts Tag Team Champions on the go-home edition of IMPACT before Rebellion – eventually being saved by the returning Rachael Ellering! Ellering’s first IMPACT match in over four years would then be announced: She and Jordynne Grace would challenge Fire N Flava for their titles at the pay-per-view!
The former NXT star would play a key part in her and Grace’s victory, pinning Steelz with a Sit-Out Powerbomb to win IMPACT gold for the very first time! This marks the first time Ellering has held a title since losing the WrestleCircus Lady Of The Ring Championship to Tessa Blanchard in July 2017, around the same time she entered the first-ever Mae Young Classic tournament in WWE.

For Grace meanwhile, this is the second IMPACT championship she’s claimed – her first coming from her win over Taya Valkyrie to become Knockouts Champion back in January 2020. She would hold the title until July of that year, falling to the current holder of that very belt Deonna Purrazzo.
Elsewhere on Rebellion: Josh Alexander claimed the X-Division Championship for the very first time and Big Cass made his surprise debut when he joined Violent By Design!
