Predictions for Impact Wrestling Hard to Kill 2023
2023: Knockouts, a Hard-to-Kill 4-Way
While everyone will be watching the title vs. career bout, the victor won’t have to wait long to find out who will challenge them for the championship. At stake in this match is a potential date with whoever emerges from Jordynne Grace and Mickie James. Competing for that honour will be Masha Slamovich, Deonna Purrazzo, Taylor Wilde, and Killer Kelly.
After two failed tries with Jordyne Grace, Slamovich would jump at the chance for a third. All three other participants should be wary of Purrazzo because she is an ever-present danger in the Knockouts class, and because Wilde has revealed a more aggressive, dark side of her nature. Killer Kelly is returning to action after being out since November, further increasing the match’s inherent uncertainty.
In this match, any one of the four Knockouts has a great chance at victory and the title of champion. While Taylor Wilde’s rivals may study extensive videos of IMPACT veterans Masha and Deonna, the new Taylor Wilde is still relatively fresh to the promotion.
Kelly has also been absent from an IMPACT ring for a while, making an up-to-date video of her even more elusive. Masha’s deadly no matter the situation, but he’s been struggling in the major bouts lately. At the end of the game, any one of these four may have their hand raised. Attend Hard to Kill 2023 to find out who it is.
Prediction: Killer Kelly, I think, will take it.
Title VS Career
Mickie James’s swan song, “The Last Rodeo,” is still going strong. James has made every game a must-win since the second half of last season. She has said that her final match will be the next one she loses. James has compiled a stellar winning streak that has established her as the clear frontrunner. Jordynne Grace presents an enormous obstacle for her.
To date, Grace has successfully defended her title against Tasha Steelz, Deonna Purrazzo, Rachael Ellering, and Masha Slamovich, among others, to hold the Slammiversary 2022 crown. Grace plans to take on James, a seasoned fighter, using her speed and agility. Both Knockouts have a lot riding on the outcome of Hard to Kill. James’s career takes on Grace’s Knockouts Championship. At Hard to Kill 2023, just one person’s hand will be raised at the end of the match.
Prediction: James will come out on top.
A Major Life Occasion
Josh Alexander successfully defended his IMPACT World Championship against Eddie Edwards at Bound for Glory. After the contest, Alexander found himself in what appeared to be a dire situation, surrounded by Honor No More. Bully Ray entered the ring after he had already been declared the winner of the Call Your Shot Gauntlet. It took Bully weeks of attempting to win Alexander’s trust before he finally succeeded.
There was hope that Ray might actually follow through on his pledge for a short while. To make matters worse, the Bully assaulted Alexander and his wife in front of their toddler. Bully said he would beat Alexander at Hard to Kill and pay in his trophy.
After Bully attacked his longtime buddy Tommy Dreamer with chairs and ladders, the conflict quickly became personal. Following the assault, Alexander insisted that the bout be upgraded to a Full Metal Mayhem match by referee Scott D’amore. These two will fight with each other using anything that can move.
Josh Alexander’s stint as IMPACT World Champion has gone down in history. He’ll need all the inner strength he can muster if he wants to leave Atlanta as the IMPACT World Champion.
Prediction: Alexander will likely maintain his position, according to our forecast.
To what extent does Bully Ray have a chance to regain his Impact Championship?
Since coming back to Impact Wrestling, Bully Ray has made quite an impression.
The famous wrestler is preparing to become world champion after a feud with Josh Alexander, but will his years of expertise be enough to beat the younger Alexander?
