Former Impact Wrestling Knockout Not Headed to WWE?
As we noted a couple weeks ago, former Impact Wrestling Knockout Madison Rayne attended a tryout at the WWE Performance Center, however, there was no word on whether or not WWE offered Rayne a contract a following the tryouts. In what could be a sign that Rayne is not headed to WWE, Ring of Honor has announced her return in the following press release:
“In 2008, a young woman just a year into professional wrestling then-known as Ashley Layne was looking to make an instant splash. She competed in two Four Corner Survival Matches with Women of Honor pioneers like Sara Del Rey, MsChif, Daizee Haze, Lacey, and Serena Deeb.
Nearly nine years later, that competitor, now international star Madison Rayne returns to Ring of Honor to make her official Women of Honor debut during Survival of the Fittest Weekend in Oklahoma City! Since last competing in a Ring of Honor ring, Madison became a five-time TNA Knockouts Champion, was one half of the inaugural Shimmer Tag Team Champions and became one of the biggest female wrestling stars in the world.
But Madison isn’t coming to compete in Women of Honor to face a young competitor looking for an opportunity or a local Oklahoman star. No, Madison is diving right into the deep end, signing to face Deonna Purrazzo! Just over two years ago, Deonna helped launch the Women of Honor brand and has become one of its biggest stars, competing all around the globe, representing Women of Honor! This first-time, ever, dream match will take place on Sunday, November 19 in Oklahoma City!
Who will win this clash of two of the world’s very best female stars? Join us in Oklahoma City to find out!”
