The Knockouts Tag Team Championships were established in a backstage segment on the August 20th, 2009 episode of Impact. Taylor Wilde & Sarita became the inaugural champions after winning a four-week tournament.
The titles became an integral part of the division as there were 9 title reigns shared between 15 wrestlers. Two Knockouts were able to hold both the singles and tag titles simultaneously and they were even one of the nine teams to hold the belts. When looking at this already herald division adding a tag team championship was a no brainer. The titles became apart of some of the best storylines in the Knockouts Division history.
When looking back at the nine teams and 15 wrestlers to have held the titles there were some reigns that stand the test of time and have reached G.O.A.T. status.
Update on the Knockouts Tag Team Championship:
Impact Wrestling announced back at Bound for Glory that the Knockouts Tag Team Championship will be returning on January 16th, 2021 at the Hard to Kill PPV.
An 8 team tournament was also announced that night and this past Saturday at Turning Point the bracket and teams were revealed.
Here is the bracket:
The tournament begins tonight on IMPACT. IMPACT has done an amazing job in actually building a tag team division as we have many established teams already in Havok/Nevaeh, Rosemary/Taya Valkyrie, Deonna Purrazzo/Kimber Lee, and my personal favorites and the ones to win the titles Kiera Hogan/Tasha Steelz. Who is your favorite tag team? Who do you think will win the titles at Hard to Kill?
