IInspiration off Hard To Kill 2022 card.
Unfortunately, IMPACT Wrestling has announced that the IMPACT Knockouts Tag Team Titles will no longer be at stake at Hard To Kill 2022 because Cassie Lee and Jessica McKay were exposed to COVID-19.
It is noted that this is a cautionary move first and foremost and not stated that either champion is sick in any way. Cass and Jess were scheduled to face Tenille Dashwood and Madison Rayne live on pay-per-view
Jessica McKay & Cassie Lee to self-isolate after exposure to COVID
(January 7, 2022) – The IInspiration, Jessica McKay and Cassie Lee, will not be defending their Knockouts World Tag-Team Championship at IMPACT Wrestling’s HARD TO KILL Pay-Per-View event tomorrow night.
The champions informed IMPACT Wrestling that they have been in close contact with an individual who shortly thereafter tested positive for COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution and with the health of their peers in mind, Jessica and Cassie will self-isolate over the weekend.
IMPACT Executive Vice-President Scott D’Amore said: “IMPACT’s COVID protocols are in place to keep our talent roster, staff and fans safe. I am sure the fans will share The IInspiration’s and my disappointment that they won’t be in action at tomorrow’s stacked HARD TO KILL event, but we look forward to their return soon.”
The annual HARD TO KILL event, sponsored by THE FREE FALL movie, takes place in Dallas at 8pmET/5pmPT and is available on cable & satellite providers in North America and worldwide via FITE. Order NOW: https://www.fite.tv/watch/hard-to-kill-2022/2pafo/
