– In November, Madison Rayne returned to Impact Wrestling to compete in the Knockouts Championship Tournament. In this video interview, Rayne sat down with her husband Josh Mathews to talk about returning and what she has been up to since leaving the promotion in July (as an exclusive performer).
Rayne is a free agent as she also appears for Ring of Honor and various independent promotions. ROH announced last week that Rayne will take part in a tournament to crown the first-ever Women of Honor Champion.

Back in November, there was speculation that Edwards had parted ways with Impact Wrestling after the company deleted her profile from ImpactWrestling.com. This was apparently a miscommunication error as her profile was quickly added back to the active roster. Edwards then indicated on social media that she’s still with Impact.
– Gail Kim was backstage at Impact Wrestling’s television tapings on Sunday.
