Former Impact Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne has signed a deal to return to the IMPACT Wrestling. Impact announced this afternoon that she has signed a multi-year contract.
Madison Rayne, who had signed a one year deal with Ring of Honor after participating in the second WWE Mae Young Classic, was reportedly frustrated with the creative direction of her character. According to PW Insider, Rayne had pitched the idea of a “Beautiful People Reunion” alongside original members, Angelina Love & Velvet Sky.
ROH offered to bring the group but ROH wanted them to turn on Madison Rayne and possibly add Mandy Leon, to form a newer version the Beautiful People. Rayne declined the offer and requested her release from the company.
She now returns to the company where she has had the most success in her wrestling career. Rayne is also married to IMPACT Wrestling’s lead announcer, Josh Matthews.
