IMPACT Wrestling Great Madison Rayne Retires from Pro Wrestling


After much speculation, Madison Rayne has made it official and retired from the world of professional wrestling, tonight she announced before Impact Wrestling’s live pay-for-view broadcast of Hard to Kill.

Rayne, real name Ashley Nichole Lomberger, spent 12 amazing years at Impact Wrestling, becoming a five-time Knockouts Champion, two-time Knockouts Tag Team Champion as part of the Beautiful People stable, and color commentator along side her real-life husband, Josh Mathews.

Rayne began her pro wrestling career in the early 2000s with stops with Impact/TNA, SHIMMER, and ROH. She even wrestled one match with WWE in the 2018 Mae Young Classic, losing to Mercedes Martinez.

It has been reported that Rayne will take a full position outside the pro wrestling industry, and she said that she will concentrate on being a mom and wife.

Good luck to the legendary Rayne, who leaves behind a legacy of beauty and excellent to the next generation of Knockout wrestlers.
