Taya Valkyrie and Rosemary Capture Knockouts Tag Team Championships at Slammiversary
The duo won the belts as a team for the first time tonight. Rosemary held the belts once before with Havok as part of Decay. The duo won the belts in the summer of 2021 and held them for 98 days before losing them to the debuting IInspiration at Bound for Glory 2021. Rosemary is also a former one-time Knockouts Champion.
This is the first reign as Knockouts Tag Team Champion for Valkyrie. Valkyrie is a former one-time Knockouts Champion. Valkryie held the belt for 377 days which is the 4th most cumulative days in IMPACT history. Her 377-day reign is also the longest reign in IMPACT history. She adds this accolade to her resume which also includes being the first-ever MLW Featherweight Champion.
They ended the reign of The Influence who after feuding with The IInspiration decided to drop their third member in Kaleb With a K. After his loyalties were questioned and he nearly cost the team a win in some key matches, Kaleb was removed from the group. The duo will now go back to the drawing board and try to get another shot at the titles they just lost.
