The colors red and blue have defined the fiery passion exuded by out pro wrestler Kiera Hogan since debuting with Impact Wrestling in 2018. On Saturday, Hogan added another entry to her in-ring color wheel: gold.

Hogan and Tasha Steelz, collectively known as Fire & Flava, captured the Impact Wrestling Knockouts (or Women’s) Tag Team championship, during Saturday’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view event. The duo defeated the veteran team of Havok and Nevaeh in the finals of an eight-team tournament.

Hogan and Steelz defeated The Sea Stars (out wrestler Ashley Vox and Delmi Exo) and Taya Valkyrie and Rosemary to earn their spot in the finals.

The win marks the first championship victory for both Hogan and Steelz during their time with Impact Wrestling. Impact Wrestling stalwarts and former Knockouts Tag Team champions Gail Kim and Madison Rayne commemorated the win by raising the new champs’ arms following the match.

It also marks the return of the titles as a whole. Created in 2009, the Knockouts Tag Team titles were quietly deactivated by the company in 2013 after Eric Young and ODB were in-storyline stripped of the titles due to Eric Young identifying as a man. Saturday’s victory makes Hogan and Steelz the first team to hold the titles in nearly eight years.

Fire & Flava celebrated the win with a #BussItChallenge video showcasing their newly won titles and calling out AEW Women’s Tag Team tournament winners Diamante, Hogan’s partner, and Ivelisse.

Hogan also reveled in her new championship glow with Diamante and a bottle of Clase Azul tequila (a personal favorite). “Best girlfriend ever. Thanks for always being my biggest supporter,” Hogan tweeted.
