Taya Valkyrie fully believes in the strength of IMPACT's Knockouts Division.
Valkyrie recently spoke with Spencer Love of the Conversations With Love podcast and talked about the current state of the Knockouts Division and how it could get better. When talking about the division being the strongest group of female wrestlers today, Valkyrie wholeheartedly agrees with that sentiment, talking about the depth and diversity of the roster.
“I one-hundred percent agree with you. I think that we have an incredibly well rounded and diverse and different group of women. No one looks the same. No one wrestle's the same. No one's the same height, the same look the same everything. Everybody is absolutely different, and I think that's so important. I just feel like everybody has a different story," Valkyrie said. "Everybody has a different background, and that creates the opportunity for these incredible matches, which you're seeing, and that gives you characters like Rosemary, gives you characters like me, gives you, you know, the Tasha Steelz, and the Kiera Hogan's and the Su Young's. I mean, like it's just unbelievable the diversity of different types of performers that we have, and I love that and I I am very proud to be part of that. And, you know, even though I say that I'm from Slam Town, everyone knows that I'm Canadian, and I'm glad to be representing, you know, the Great White North as everyone likes to call it in the Impact Zone, and in Mexico in AAA. I also am a current and three-time Lucha AAA Reina de Reinas Champion. I was the longest, I am the longest reigning Reina de Reinas Champion as well in history, for holding the title for almost three years. So I mean, I'm very proud to be part of the Impact locker room and as part of one of the Knockouts, and with all these new additions of these incredible women that we've had over the last few months and weeks, I mean, the possibilities for matches is just growing and growing and I'm excited to see what we do over the next few months. Or year! Let’s try and make 2020 a little better than it’s been!”
One recent addition to IMPACT was Deonna Purrazzo who appeared on the June 9 episode of IMPACT and indicated that she is going after Jordynne Grace and the IMPACT Knockouts Championship. Valkyrie said she is waiting to see what Purrazzo can do before having a final opinion on her.
“I mean, let me say this - and I said this already in another interview - I'm just waiting to see exactly what Deonna's gonna do. I have never wrestled her, ever, and she's literally just got - she's just got there. She's literally been there not even long enough to have a cup of coffee and you know, and get me one, too. I'm still - I am just waiting. I am the person that is waiting to watch and see what happens, I mean, bring it, Deonna, because I'm watching you," Valkyrie said.
