During last night’s Hard To Kill pre-show, Madison Rayne confirmed her retirement from IMPACT Wrestling.
Rayne said that is it time for “Madison Rayne the wrestler to go home and be a mom and be a wife.”
Some within the Wrestling Industry reacted on social media regarding Rayne’s announcement, which you can check out below.
First time we met at work, she told me it was ok to smile. That was over 6 years ago. I’ve watched her grow & thrive as a mom, host, producer, wife, student & now whatever she wants to do next.

Not only is @MadisonRayne great inside the ring, she is one of the most creative and giving people I’ve ever worked with.
