It was announced during last night’s Hard To Kill pay per view that former five-time IMPACT Knockouts (TNA) champion Madison Rayne was officially retiring, ending what has been a legendary career, which includes a run in Ring of Honor and competing in WWE’s 2018 Mae Young Classic tournament.
Several stars from WWE, AEW, and IMPACT have since taken to Twitter to wish Rayne well on her new endeavors. This includes Nikki Cross, The Bunny, Chelsea Green, Tasha Steelz, Josh Matthews, current Knockouts champion Deonna Purrazzo, and more. Check them 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.

My guardian angel. My mentor… My best friend. You’ve believed in me since day one & I would not where I am, or who I am, without having you by my side.

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