A former WWE star is coming out of retirement for Impact Wrestling.
This week on Impact on AXS TV, it was announced that Jordynne Grace would be teaming up with former WWE Women’s Champion Jazz during the Impact Knockouts Tag Team Tournament to crown a new champion.
Jazz had planned to do a retirement tour this year but she wasn’t able to because of the pandemic. Last month, she announced her retirement from wrestling.
During an interview Chris Van Vliet, Jazz said, “Honestly, I just had my last match this past Sunday. I am done in the ring. I was going to do a whole tour in 2020 but with the pandemic happening, that screwed everything up. I’ve been having issues with my knees and my back and a lot more issues physically, mentally and emotionally. That’s why I had to forfeit the NWA title. I have two beautiful daughters and I have to focus on them right now.”
Her deal with Impact may be short-term just for the tournament.
