From Impact, to a WWE Tryout, back to Impact, and now… to the Women of Honor?
After a mention of this on an Impact Wrestling Instagram Live interview by her husband Josh Matthews, it is officially confirmed that former Impact Wrestling Knockout, Madison Rayne, will be making her return to Ring of Honor, as well as her debut for the Women of Honor.
She will face Deonna Purrazzo on the third night of their Survival of the Fittest shows on Sunday, November 19 in Oklahoma City!
The following is quoted from the original article on the official Ring of Honor Website.
In 2008, a young woman just a year into professional wrestling then-known as Ashley Layne was looking to make an instant splash. She competed in two Four Corner Survival Matches with Women of Honor pioneers like Sara Del Rey, MsChif, Daizee Haze, Lacey, and Serena Deeb.
Nearly nine years later, that competitor, now international star Madison Rayne returns to Ring of Honor to make her official Women of Honor debut during Survival of the Fittest Weekend in Oklahoma City! Since last competing in a Ring of Honor ring, Madison became a five-time TNA Knockouts Champion, was one half of the inaugural Shimmer Tag Team Champions and became one of the biggest female wrestling stars in the world.
But Madison isn’t coming to compete in Women of Honor to face a young competitor looking for an opportunity or a local Oklahoman star. No, Madison is diving right into the deep end, signing to face Deonna Purrazzo! Just over two years ago, Deonna helped launch the Women of Honor brand and has become one of its biggest stars, competing all around the globe, representing Women of Honor! This first-time, ever, dream match will take place on Sunday, November 19 in Oklahoma City!
