Impact Wrestling looks set to bolster its Knockouts division with the return of former champion Taylor Wilde, reports PWInsider's Mike Johnson.
There's currently no word on when, exactly, Wilde will re-emerge in the promotion, though Impact has already wrapped its last set of television tapings for 2020. If she is to appear in the ring this year, it will already be in the can.
Wilde, 34, was originally with Impact from 2008 to 2010. Introduced as a planted crowd member tasked with competing in Awesome Kong's $25,000 challenge, she became Knockouts Champion in just her second official match for the promotion, slaying the monster in July 2008. Two runs with the Knockouts Tag Team Championships followed before she was released by the promotion in December 2010, announcing her retirement from pro-wrestling the following month.
WrestleZone interviewed Wilde in June, with the former champion revealing that there were plans for her to appear at Impact's Lockdown event in Canada earlier this year. This show was cancelled at the onset of the global health crisis.
Wilde will join one of the most acclaimed women's divisions in North America, featuring alongside the likes of Deonna Purrazzo, Jordynne Grace, and Tenille Dashwood.
