As first reported by Squared Circle Sirens, Madison Rayne was spotted this week at the WWE Performance Center. Her departure from Impact Wrestling kind of flew under the radar because nothing was announced by her or the company but we reported back in July that Rayne had left shortly after the Slammiversary pay-per-view and she has been taking bookings with promotions like Tried-N-True Pro Wrestling and SHIMMER. Those were her first non-TNA/Impact bookings since 2015. Rayne is married to current Impact Wrestling commentator Josh Mathews.
Also, Serena Deeb, former WWE star and recent competitor in the Mae Young Classic, was at the Performance Center this week working as a guest trainer. We had previously noted that Austin Aries was at the PC last week but you might not want to read too much into that because he could have just been there to drop off his fiancee/NXT star Zelina Vega (Thea Trinidad). Aries recently sent out some tweets that seemingly were in reference to the recent departures of Neville and Jimmy Jacobs. Click here if you want to read what Aries said.
