Madison Rayne has retired from professional wrestling.
The five-time Knockouts Champion officially introduced the news herself tonight during the IMPACT Wrestling Hard To Kill pre-show on AXS TV.
Madison then made an appearance throughout the pay-per-view itself, together with fellow legend Gail Kim, presenting the brand new Knockouts Tag Team Championships to the winners of an eight-team tournament, Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz.
It was reported in December that Rayne could be stepping away from her position as a shade commentator for IMPACT Wrestling to pursue a full-time job outdoors of the wrestling business. She wrestled her closing independent match towards Kylie Rae for Warrior Wrestling in 2020.
