A mysterious new Knockout is coming soon to IMPACT Wrestling and we now know who she is.
Two weeks ago on IMPACT!, this vignette aired teasing the arrival of a “mysterious” new Knockout.
A similar vignette then aired on last week’s show.
This mystery has been solved.
It was revealed on last night’s episode of IMPACT! that Scarlett Bordeaux is the mysterious Knockout the wrestling world has been buzzing about.
This vignette aired hyping Bordeaux’s IMPACT Wrestling debut, which is set for next week’s episode of IMPACT!.
While next Thursday is being promoted as Bordeaux’s IMPACT Wrestling debut, this isn’t her first go-round with the company.
Bordeaux actually made her IMPACT Wrestling debut on May 10, 2014, at One Night Only: Knockouts Knockdown 2014, which aired on pay-per-view on November 7, 2014. A series of matches were held pitting eight Knockouts against eight independent female wrestlers and Bordeaux (under the name Scarlett) took on Angelina Love, who held the Knockouts Championship at the time the event was taped. Bordeaux lost to Love and therefore failed to qualify for the Knockouts Gauntlet match to crown the “Queen of the Knockouts” later that night.
Bordeaux returned to the IMPACT Wrestling ring a few months ago. On April 25, she faced Katarina at a TV taping in Orlando, Florida. The two-time Knockouts Champion pinned Bordeaux after hitting her with the uranage.
According to fans in attendance, this match was taped for Xplosion and/or the Global Wrestling Network. However, it likely served as a dark match tryout for company officials to get a look at Bordeaux and see if she has what it takes to be a Knockout.
We have photos of Bordeaux from her match again Katarina, which should give you an idea of how she’ll look when she “debuts.”
