Bruce Prichard’s WWE Role, Former Impact Wrestling Champ Returning
Bruce Prichard is back in WWE and will be working as a consultant. Also, former Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne has rejoined Impact Wrestling.
– Bruce Prichard is back in the picture of WWE and it what thought that he would work with creative, while being one of Vince McMahon’s go to people. F4WOnline’s Dave Meltzer noted how his responsibility was a bit overstated in earlier reports.
We will not be seeing Prichard joining the creative team. Rather, he is being used as a consultant. WWE is still working out the details of some other responsibilities that Prichard might handle in the future.
– Ring of Honor (ROH) lost Madison Rayne as she was granted her release only days ago. Now, she is already headed back to Impact Wrestling; where she found the most success throughout her pro wrestling career.
Rayne was not happy with the lack of direction for her character and ROH asked her to pitch several ideas. One of them was to reunite the Beautiful People alongside Angelina Love and Velvet Sky. None of the ideas were approved, so they parted ways. Plus, Velvet Sky has retired from in ring competition.
The former five-timeKnockouts Champion last appeared for Impact Wrestling during the Slammiversary pay per view. She lost the match to Su Yung and was placed in a coffin afterwards to write her out of the company. Before signing with ROH, Rayne competed in the 2018 WWE Mae Young Classic. She was eliminated in the first round by Mercedes Martinez.
Rayne holds a unique honor of competing for Impact Wrestling, WWE and ROH all within the same year. Also, her husband is Josh Matthews, who handles play by play commentary for Impact Wrestling.
No word on when Rayne returns to Impact Wrestling, but she will likely work the next set of TV tapings. Impact Wrestling sent out the following tweet to confirm Rayne’s return.
