The lights go out and when they come back on “The Drama King” Matthew Rehwoldt. Tonight he shares his spotlight as The Homecoming King with his queen, The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. Out comes the champ.
“No one likes you” chants begin to echo the IMPACT Zone. Deonna waits for the jeers to settle (as it is her coronation after all). She’s been racking up accolade after accolade since she came to IMPACT. She goes over those accolades. “No one cares” chants. Everybody knew that she was the uncrowned queen of the Knockouts Division, but Homecoming made that official. Mickie James comes out. Deonna once again is not pleased. Mickie knew she’d feel that way, but her Empowerrr match has not been made official. She has a contract for her to sign. Deonna says before she even signs this, she needs to to see who her opponent is. Out comes NWA’s Melina. Deonna immediately signs it. So does Melina. Deonna formally introduces herself and says it’s an honor, but at Empowerrr it will be an honor to defeat her. Melina says it was impressive that she one the Knockouts Title on her first attempt. That’s impressive. Melina plans to do the same.
Where was Taylor Wilde for two months. She was taking a walk on the Wilde side. She’s a proud Canadian and she had to cross the border. She ran into some problems. Taylor suspects Tenille. Why? Because the person who called in was “Kelvin with a K.” She took Kaleb out, now she wants “Tenille With A T.”
Kimber Lee and her new creepy look is with Su Yung. She calls her “mother” and asks if she may show what she’s made of. Su Yung says when it’s time.
