IMPACT WRESTLING NEWS AND NOTES

By Mike Johnson on 2019-05-20 09:15:00

Impact Wrestling saw signing Jordynne Grace yesterday as a victory.  The two sides officially came to terms yesterday for a multi-year deal.  There was interest from both WWE and AEW, so Impact was really pleased that Grace, despite having strong interest elsewhere, made the decision to finally lock herself into a deal wtih them.   There wasn't a clear answer as far as why Grace never signed the initial deal that she was supposed to sign last October.  We are told that Grace provided Impact with data, including social media engagement, to showcase why she was worth more than the initial deal that was offered.  One would think that in the end, she landed a better financial deal than she was probably originally offered.   Her new contract will run through May 2021.

Impact sources, in responding to the Scarlett Bordeaux situation, claimed that she is in the midst of a multi-year deal and that her contract does not expire this summer.  There's no word as to whether she will receive the release Scarlett requested last week.

Killer Kross and Tessa Blanchard worked for AAA in Mexico over the weekend.  On 5/18, Tessa Blanchard and Le Heidra defeated Faby Apache and Lady Shani when Blanchard pinned Apache in Tessa's official AAA debut, although she had been part of the AAA press conference.  On 5/19, Tessa Blanchanrd teamed with Chik Tormenta & El Hijo del Tirantes to beat Astrolux & Faby Apache & Nino Hamburguesa.  Killer Kross teamed with Texano Jr. & Rey Escorpion to beat Puma King & Pagano & Psycho Clown on 5/18.  On 5/19, Killer Kross teamed with Daga, and Blue Demon Jr. to beat Puma King & LA Park & Psycho Clown.   Thanks to Shannon Walsh.
