That’s a little weird. Wrestling can be a bit strange at times because despite everything being scripted and set up in advance, sometimes you are going to get a result that isn’t quite the original plan. There are going to be a few curves thrown in there and some of them are a lot better than others. Sometimes you get a curve for a bad reason though and that seems to be the case again.
While WWE’s Hell In A Cell was the biggest event of the weekend, it was not the only important show. Impact Wrestling also presented its marquee show of the year with Bound For Glory, which serves as their WrestleMania level event. As usual, this year’s card was stacked with major shows, some of which were bigger than others. One high level match did not work there and for a fairly unique reason.
One of the more prominently featured matches at this weekend’s Bound For Glory was Deonna Purrazzo defending the Knockouts Title against Kylie Rae. However, Rae did not appear for reasons that are not quite certain. According to Fightful Select, Rae was in Nashville on Friday and had been asking about when to be at the show Saturday, but never arrived. Wrestlers have reached out to those close to her and have been told that she is alive and well. According to F4WOnline.com, reports of Rae being injured are not true. Su Yung took Rae’s place and defeated Purrazzo for the Knockouts Title.
Rae is quite the talent when she is around. Check out what Impact Wrestling is hoping for:
Opinion: I have no idea what to make of this, but Rae seems to have a pattern of issues when the lights are on brightest. She made a single appearance for AEW before being asked to be released and hopefully that is not the case again here. Rae is very talented, but if she has some sort of issue that is holding her back, it might be a long time before a company is willing to give her another shot.
What do you think of Rae? Will she be able to have a long career in wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
