Following her release from the WWE, where she competed under the name Katie Lea Burchill, Winter made her Impact debut in October 2010 as an admirer of Angelina Love. The two would go on to capture the Knockouts Tag Team Titles by defeating the team of Madison Rayne and Tara.
During her singles competition, Winter would have two very brief runs with the Knockouts Championship when she defeated Mickie James at 2011’s Hardcore Justice and then defeating her again later in the same year at No Surrender.
Winter parted ways with the company in 2012.
Impact Wrestling confirmed via Twitter of Winter’s return to Impact:

During a recent interview with Women’s Pro Wrestling Weekly, Winter discussed the possibility of her returning to either WWE or Impact Wrestling:
I would definitely consider that for sure. Probably more Impact because there is more freedom to do other things. And I’m a big fan of Lucha as well and they do things like the talent crossover. So that would be definitely something I would be interested in getting involved in.
