Hello Impact fans and curious rubberneckers! I’m Elle Collins, and this is the Knockout Report. I’ll fill you in on everything that happens in Impact Wrestling, but I’m always going to lead with the Knockouts Division, because they deserve it. You can follow me on Twitter here, With Spandex here, and Uproxx here. You can watch Impact Wrestling on Pop every Thursday at 10 p.m. Then on Fridays, read this column and share it with everyone you know.
Without further ado, here’s the Knockout Report for October 25, 2018.
Scarlett Bordeaux’s Talent Search Continues
It’s almost Halloween, and Scarlett Bordeaux is dressed up like Margot Robbie’s character in The Big Short. She’s found some reasonably charming fan videos to show clips of, but it’s still very unclear where any of this is leading. I’m starting to feel like I get too hung up on the future when talking about Scarlett in particular, when I should accept that sitting in bathtubs and wearing an outrageous outfit to watch a match from the stage is the kind of thing Impact hired her for. The problem I have with that proposition is that so many of her segments revolve around what she’s about to do, but after being here for months there’s still not much she’s actually done. If she’s not here to wrestle the other Knockouts, should could be a manger. But rather than being a manager, she’s looking for someone to manage, with no particular time table for finding anyone. Honestly, if you’re not going to put her in the ring herself, put her with Trevor Lee or Petey Williams and get on with it.
