Impact Wrestling Hard To Kill 2021
- Date: January 16, 2021
- Location: Skyway Studios in Nashville, Tennessee
- It marked the first time in decades (or ever), where a World Champion from a company fought with another in the main event of a PPV. The AEW World Champion pinned the Impact World Champion in the main event.
- Taya Valkyrie’s defeat at the hands of Deonna Purrazzo was her last match with Impact Wrestling, before departing to another company.
- Ethan Page’s “Mortal Kombat” inspired cinematic match was his last appearance with the company. After the show, he posted a comment online stating management had heavily edited the footage down to the point it made him look bad. The original is meant to be way more serious and graphic.
- After a brief stint with All Elite Wrestling, Matt Cardona (fka Zack Ryder) made his Impact Wrestling debut.
- After the tournament final, former Knockouts Tag Team Champions Gail Kim & Madison Rayne awarded the revived title to the winners Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz.
- Manik was unmasked during the X Division title match, revealing it to be TJP wearing face paint.
- Decay reunited for the first time since Abyss retired from wrestling, and marked one of only a few occasions where Rosemary and Crazzy Steve teamed together.
- During the pre-show, Madison Rayne announced her retirement from Impact Wrestling. She did not state her retirement from wrestling altogether, but it’s assumed she will focus on being a Mother and working a full-time job away from wrestling.
