Madison Rayne Explains Her Impact Wrestling Return

Mar 4, 2019 - by James Walsh

In an interview with Impact Wrestling, Madison Rayne spoke about her absence from the company and her plans now that she has officially returned. It was announced last week that Rayne signed a multi-year deal with Impact shortly after leaving Ring of Honor due to creative differences. Here are highlights:

On being back in Impact: “I’m back! I just took a break. I am officially home, I am back at Impact Wrestling. Things are going to be a little different this time around. I’ve got some unfinished business to take care of… I have done my homework. I know that Taya Valkyrie is the current Knockouts Champion. If I have anything to say about that, her reign will be [short lived].”

On when she starts: “I’m going to start tonight. I am back, effective immediately. There’s no easing me back in, there’s no grace period, my contract is in effect as of today and I am back. I am headed to Dayton and then I will be in Louisville tomorrow, and I’m hitting the ground running. I’m excited.”

On her plans: “If I ruffle some feathers in the locker room this time around, that’s okay, because the last time I came back, it wasn’t in my plans to come back. I thought I was coming back purely to hit [Josh Matthews’] mute button a bit more at the commentary table, but things happen. They unfolded the way they did and I got back in the ring, and you know, I told my story last time. Now everybody knows, okay? We all get it – Madison’s a mom, Madison was on the comeback trail. I’m a little bit more focused this time. It’s all about business. As much as I love coming home to Impact, as much as I love that locker room, at the end of the day, it’s about one thing and that’s the Knockouts Championship. And I’m bringing it home for the sixth time.”
