The King of the Mountain match has always been a staple of this company, so let’s introduce the competitors. Tasha Steelz will face Chelsea Green, Jordynne Grace, Deonna Purrazzo, and Gail does not get the chance to announce the last name because Tasha Steelz interrupts.
Steelz says the fifth will be Savannah Evans, but Kim says all the competitors are former Knockouts Champions. The fifth will be Mia Yim. The champ gets in Gail’s face as she’s taking this personally. Mia Yim makes her entrance and goes after Steelz. She fends off both Evans & Steelz before Purrazzo appears from nowhere and blindsides her. Here Taya Valkyrie & Jordynne Grace, and there’s action everywhere. Yim, Valkyrie & Grace stand tall in the ring after taking out the heels.
