Jordynne Grace signed with IMPACT Wrestling in 2018. She made her debut on the November 8, 2018 episode of IMPACT Wrestling.

Since then, Grace has gone on to achieve considerable success during her three years with the promotion. This has included reigns with the Knockouts Championship and Knockouts Tag Team Championships respectively.

When asked what her greatest achievement in IMPCT Wrestling was, Grace admitted that winning the Knockouts Title from the longest reigning champion in company history, Taya Valkyrie, was right up there:

"I think my greatest achievement was winning the Knockouts Title from the knockout who held the title for the longest period of time ever in history which was Taya [Valkyrie], so that was a really big one for me," revealed Grace.

However, Jordynne Grace also pointed out that competing in the X-Division, traditionally exclusive to male wrestlers, was also a significant achievement. As well as winning the Knockouts Tag Team Titles with Rachael Ellering:

"Also competing in the X-Division which has always been a big dream of mine. And last but not least, I've become tag team champions with Rachael Ellering. I've been successful in a tag team with her for a minute now," Grace added.

IMPACT Wrestling has utilized the oft-mentioned "forbidden door" over the past twelve months. By establishing working relationships with companies such as AEW, AAA, NWA and NJPW, IMPACT Wrestling has seen various competitors from other promotions appear on their programming.

Jordynne Grace was asked which competitors she would like to face that she has never wrestled before. The former Knockouts Champion singled out two names from the AEW roster as potential future opponents:

"Well, I think I've answered this a few times. But, Leyla Hirsch from AEW. I think she's amazing. We have kind of a similar background. I know we both did some amateur wrestling in the past and we kind of have the same style, so i feel like that would be really good. Also, another big one is [Hikaru] Shida from AEW, i feel like we would really mesh well."

#3 Jordynne Grace thinks that Intergender wrestling in IMPACT Wrestling will become more mainstream

Jordynne Grace has been seen as a pioneer by some for her frequent participation in intergender wrestling. Grace has regularly competed against male wrestlers in IMPACT Wrestling and in various independent wrestling shows too. In fact, Jordynne Grace challenged for the X-Division Championship at Bound For Glory last year.

When asked about what the future of intergender wrestling looked like, Grace stated that she felt that it was only the beginning and the term 'intergender wrestling' would eventually be dropped:

"I feel like it's just going to become more and more mainstream. People are going to get more used to it the more they do it. And I just feel like it's going to be considered wrestling in general in the future. I don't think people are going to refer to it as 'intergender wrestling' anymore, they're just going to see it as something that happens all the time," said Grace.

#2 IMPACT Wrestling star Jordynne Grace reveals greatest ever advice she has received as a wrestler

Former IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace has worked with some major names throughout her professional wrestling career to date.

Grace was asked about the best piece of advice that she had received during her wrestling career. The IMPACT Wrestling Knockout surprisingly revealed that the best advice came from her mother:

"Best advice that I got wasn't from a wrestler. It was actually from my mom, who you know she's been with me since the very beginning, she's always supported me in my wrestling career. She always told me to do whatever I needed to do to make it in the business, and that's what I did. She basically taught me to stay true to myself and my own values. She let me move to St. Louis, Missouri to pursue a career in wrestling when i was 17. She's just my biggest supporter, she's definitely the one that's given me best advice over the years," admitted Jordynne Grace.

#1 Jordynne Grace reveals desire to win IMPACT Wrestling World Championship

Despite already achieving so much in her short IMPACT Wrestling career, Jordynne Grace still has aspirations to achieve more.

When asked if she hopes to one day capture the IMPACT Wrestling World Championship, the former Knockouts Tag Team Champion revealed that it is one of her dreams:

"That is definitely one of my dreams. I would love to do that, or I would love to compete in the X-Division. Those are both big dreams of mine and hopefully one day they'll come to fruition," Grace said.

Jordynne Grace also revealed her desire to be remembered as one of the best wrestlers, male or female, in history:

"I want to be remembered as one of the best wrestlers in the world, male or female. But other than that, personally, I want to do this as long as I can. I want this to be the only thing I do for pretty much the rest of my life. This and powerlifting are the only things I want to do. So I just hope to make enough money and a big enough name for myself so that I can just retire at an early age and do whatever I want from here on out," Grace revealed.
