Amidst all the recent success Impact Wrestling has had, one of their signature Impact Knockouts is now reportedly done with the company.
Madison Rayne is now reportedly done with Impact. Her profile was removed from the active Knockouts roster on ImpactWrestling.com and has been placed alongside the Alumni. You can see that in the image we have provided below:
Rayne last competed at Slammiversary against Su Yung for the Knockouts Championship. Rayne was unsuccessful, passing out to the mandible claw by Yung. In the aftermath of the match, Rayne was placed inside a coffin.
It is believed this was her send-off. Impact added further fuel to that fire with their tweets in response to Yung’s actions:

As we now know, Rayne would find herself as a participant in the second-annual Mae Young Classic with WWE. Here, she was set to compete under the name ‘Ashley Rayne.’ The tapings for the Mae Young Classic are complete for now, but the winner will be announced at WWE Evolution.
The official Impact website now has the following description for Rayne:
“Madison Rayne was a formidable Knockout from Columbus, Ohio, who captured The Knockouts Championship on 5 separate occasions. Beginning her career as a member of The Beautiful People, Madison always had friends and allies she could rely on in Angelina Love and Velvet Sky. Even if the trio had their differences, many people will always remember them as one of the most recognized factions in the history of IMPACT Wrestling.
“As a 5x Knockouts Champion, Madison Rayne will always be one of the toughest Knockouts to defeat on the roster. Her style is unique onto itself in that Madison can match almost every Knockout in most categories. From mat-based offense to ground and pound to quickening the pace, Madison Rayne can and has kept up with the best.”
