There’s been concern over the unexpected no show of KYLIE RAE at this year’s Bound For Glory event for Impact Wrestling. Rae, who had been booked to face Knockouts Champions Deonna Purrazzo on the show, did not appear as advertised and was replaced with Su Yung. Rae had been built strongly in the run up to Bound For Glory.
According to a report by Fightful, Rae had “drove in” with wrestlers for the event and has even asked about call times to be at the building for the show. Rae then failed to appear for those call times and the decision was made late in the afternoon of the show to replace Rae.
PWInsider has also stated that Rae is not injured so that was not the reasoning for the no show, and that Impact Wrestling is refusing to comment on the situation out of “respect” for Rae. It’s also said that Rae “is still with the company and is in good standing with the company and is expected to return when she is able”.
Kylie Rae was briefly apart of the AEW Women’s roster in 2019 but left soon after in what was called an “very amicable” split, but Rae’s comments on the departure left some fans concerned with repeated references to “God” and admitting “I’ve always tried to be a good person but I make many mistakes along the way”. Earlier this year she won the Warrior Wrestling Women’s Championship by defeating Tessa Blanchard.
No matter what her personal situation is, we wish Rae a speedy recovery and hope to see her back in the ring again soon.
