It’s not for everyone. While it might not be the most popular at times, there is no denying that WWE is the biggest wrestling promotion in the world. The promotion is still the end goal for a lot of wrestlers, with several of them working as hard as they can to make it to the big leagues. That is not the case for everyone though, and that was the case with a fairly prominent name from outside the company.

During a recent edition of her Wilde On podcast, former Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champions Taylor Wilde revealed that she was contacted by WWE to appear in the first Mae Young Classic. Wilde had been retired from the ring for six years but agreed to return to the ring for the chance. However, she got injured in training, meaning that she was unable to return to the ring. Wilde never appeared for WWE but did return to Impact Wrestling earlier this year, ending her ten year retirement.

It makes sense that WWE would want Wilde on their roster. Check out what she can do in the ring:

Opinion: I can’t say I’m surprised here as Wilde is someone who had not been around for a long time but could still have some name value. If nothing else, she is certainly talented and I can get why WWE would want her around. It would be nice to see her eventually get a chance to work in WWE again, as they certainly saw something in her. For now though, she seems to be doing well enough in Impact Wrestling and that’s perfectly fine.

What do you think of Wilde? How would she have fit in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
