At Hard To Kill, Mickie James toppled Jordynne Grace to reclaim the Knockouts World Title and bring her Last Rodeo to a triumphant conclusion. But on that same night, Masha Slamovich conquered not one, not two but three other Knockouts to become the new #1 Contender for the division’s top prize. Following James’ victory in a six-person tag team match just days later on IMPACT!, she was confronted by Slamovich who issued her a symbolic death warrant. We can now confirm that Mickie James will defend the Knockouts World Title against Masha Slamovich in a first-time-ever matchup at No Surrender. Will James remain at the top of the mountain? Or will it all come crashing down at the hands of Masha Slamovich?
