Impact Wrestling star Kiera Hogan has spoken of her admiration for fellow Knockout Jordynne Grace.
Hogan, who alongside Tasha Steelz will compete in the finals of the Impact Knockouts Tag Team tournament at Hard to Kill, spoke to Bill Pritchard of WrestleZone regarding her competitive affection towards Grace:
Jordynne Grace is at the top of that list. She brings the absolute best out in me and she pushes me to my absolute limit, which is why I said that I would have been so excited to have a match with her and Jazz [in the Knockouts Tag Team Championship tournament] because I know Jordynne can go and she can push me to my limits. I know I can go there with Jordynne and I remember we had a feud after the Undead Realm, and we had maybe 3-4 matches back-to-back and I think each one of those matches individually was great. She brought the best out of me, absolutely. She is one of those people that has so many ideas and is working so many different styles, so I’d love to wrestle Jordynne again. Honestly, I was hoping that she’d still be the Knockouts Champion because I wanted to wrestle her as Knockouts Champion. I feel like it should have been done, but I would love to get in the ring with Jordynne again. It’s long overdue.
Grace defeated ECW legend Jazz at this past weekend’s Impact+ special Genesis, whilst Hogan herself is preparing for a potentially historic night at Hard to Kill.
Looking beyond the pay per view, Hogan noted a desire to compete for the Knockouts Championship, particularly in a ‘Champion vs Champion’ setting, should she and Steelz be victorious:
That has been at the top of my list, in the back of my mind since these Knockouts Tag Team titles were even brought up. You know, there’s only one person in Knockouts history that has done it – there’s only one – and I would love to be the other one. I would love to be in that position and I think that would be great. I feel like out of everybody, I am the underdog and I’m the one that nobody expects to do much. I know my quality and I know my potential, but nobody has actually seen what I can do because nobody has really given me the chance. This year is my chance to prove to myself, prove to everybody, prove to IMPACT that I can literally go with anybody. I can roll with the big dogs and I’m a main event player, and definitely, that Knockouts Championship is in my view.
Grace and Steelz will meet Neveah and Havok in the finals of the Knockouts Tag Team tournament on January 16th at Hard to Kill.
