Kylie Rae made a surprising Impact Wrestling debut at last night's Bound For Glory pay-per-view, competing in the night's Call Your Shot Gauntlet Match.

The 20-person bout was designed to grant the winner a title shot of their choosing, with Eddie Edwards eventually emerging victorious after eliminating Mahabali Shera last. Rae entered the bout at number 17. She was able to eliminate Raj Singh during her run, but was eventually put away by Shera.

Pro Wrestling Sheet's writeup features a clip of Rae's Impact debut.

Kylie was released from All Elite Wrestling under unclear circumstances earlier this year, with Tony Khan confirming during his post-Double Or Nothing media scrum that the talented up-and-comer had asked to be let go. The reasons behind her departure have never come to light.

While Bound For Glory will go down as Rae's official Impact debut, she actually competed for the promotion at the All Glory live event in Merrionette Park, Illinois the night before, falling to Laynie Luck in a Zelo Pro Women's Championship match that also featured the WWE-bound Shotzi Blackheart. There's currently no word on whether or not she has signed an Impact contract.
