IMPACT Wrestling Star Jessicka On This Year’s “Bound For Glory,” Music, Twitch Streaming & More

Since its inception in 2002, IMPACT has established itself as one of the largest professional wrestling organizations in the world and the premier destination for wrestling fans across the globe, enlisting legendary performers such as Ric Flair, Sting, Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash and AJ Styles — and many more — throughout its storied legacy. IMPACT’s current roster showcases a selection of world-class athletes led by IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander and Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace, X-Division Champion “Speedball” Mike Bailey, Knockouts World Tag Team Champions VXT (Deonna Purrazzo & Chelsea Green), and Digital Media Champion Brian Myers. Other IMPACT superstars include Moose, Rich Swann, Sami Callihan, Matt Cardona, Eric Young, PCO, Rhino and Trey Miguel, and its Knockouts Division featuring Rosemary, Taya Valkyrie, Gisele Shaw, Mickie James, and Su Yung.

Speaking of the IMPACT Knockouts Division, forget everything you know about Decay’s destructive “Kaiju Queen,” Havok. Since returning from the Undead Realm, the Havok of old has transformed into Jessicka — and she’s “sick.” At this year’s Bound For Glory, she will be teaming up with Taya Valkyrie to face VXT for IMPACT Wrestling’s Knockouts Tag Team Titles. On the title front, Jessicka has held gold around the world and outside of IMPACT Wrestling, having made her in-ring debut back in 2004.

On October 1, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with Jessicka via Zoom, as embedded below. Beyond Bound For Glory, we talked music, Twitch streaming and product endorsements. More on the former Havok can be found online here, here and here, while her Twitch streaming channel is here.
