The Knockouts Championship will be on the line at Bound For Glory.
Tensions have been building between Mickie James and Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo over the past couple of months. It all began when Mickie attacked The Virtuosa following her less than cordial response to Mickie's invitation to NWA EmPowerrr. Deonna responded by attacking Mickie following her match at NWA 73.
On the September 23 episode of IMPACT Wrestling, Mickie came out to set things straight with Deonna and explained that she has her eyes on the Knockouts Title, challenging her to a match at Bound For Glory on October 23rd. Purrazzo said that a match with Mickie does nothing for her and that she never even idolized her. Deonna concluded by saying that title shots are earned.
This led to a pull-apart brawl which brought out IMPACT executive Scott D'Amore. He said that though it's true that the wrestlers don't make matches in IMPACT, it's also true that they can't decline them. He said that Mickie has earned the right to whatever match she wants and made their showdown at Bound For Glory official.
Mickie is looking to become a 4-time Knockouts Champion.
