Taya Valkyrie and Rosemary capture the Knockout Tag Team Championships at Slammiversary
The duo won the belts as a team for the first time tonight. Rosemary has held the belts once before with havok as part of Rot. The duo won the belts in the summer of 2021 and held them for 98 days before losing them to debut Inspiration at Road to Glory 2021. Rosemary is also a former Knockouts champion.
This is the first reign as Knockouts Tag Team Champion for Valkyrie. Valkyrie is a former Knockouts champion. Valkryie held the belt for 377 days, the 4th most cumulative day in IMPACT history. His reign of 377 days is also the longest reign in IMPACT history. She adds that 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 loyalty was questioned and he nearly cost the team a win in some key matches, Kaleb was dropped from the squad. The duo will now go back to the drawing board and try to get another shot at the titles they just lost.
