Allie was a very busy Knockout during the Slammiversary XV pay-per-view, celebrating the 15th anniversary of the company, on Sunday, July 2 from the Impact Zone at Universal Studios Florida in Orlando.
Allie, one of the top Knockouts on the roster, wrestled on the pre-show and was later involved in the Global Force Wrestling/Impact Wrestling unified Knockouts title match.
On the pre-show, Allie teamed with Braxton Sutter and Mahabali Shera to defeat rival Laurel Van Ness, KM and Kongo Kong.
Later, on the pay-per-view, she made a run-in during the Global Force Wrestling/Impact Wrestling unified Knockouts title match.

Sienna (the GFW Women’s champ) defeated the bizarre Rosemary (the IMPACT Knockouts champ) with zombies and the deranged Laurel Van Ness to unify those titles. KM tossed Van Ness over his shoulder and took her to the back, before the match began. Later in the match, Van Ness returned, but Allie appeared and chased away Van Ness with a kendo stick.
GFW/Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer Gail Kim, an inspiration of Allie’s, presented the titles and shook hands with the combatants just before the match start.
