Madison Rayne On Her Ultimate Goal In Wrestling: My ultimate goals is 6 and here is why. If I was a 10-time Knockouts champion, it would mean that I would have gained and lost it 4 more times. So it’s my goal to become a 6-time Knockouts champion and retire as such.

Madison Talks about The Beautiful People Getting Back TogetherIn 2016 we reunited as “The Beautiful People”, but then Angelina Love actually got pregnant, so we couldn’t continue with the revival. But, I don’t think that Velvet is doing much if any in-ring competing. I loved every second of my time in “The Beautiful People”, but at this point in my career, I found a really good groove in developing my character and doing my own thing.

Madison Rayne On Her Wrestling Influences: The first match I can remember watching as a kid was Alundra Blayze vs. Bull Nakano on Monday Night Raw. Shawn Michaels was my biggest influence growing up. I was obsessed with him and his story…I always admired him for making it despite others saying he wasn’t tall enough. I am 5’2 so I can relate to people saying you are too small.

Madison Talks About Her Relationship With Gail Kim: It’s so funny how things work out at Impact Wrestling. Because when Gail first came back to Impact we were a team together. Then feuded for a long time. Then I stepped away from in-ring competition and I was apart of Impact’s creative team for a long time and writing things for the Knockouts when she was competing. So now she has taken a backstage role and I’m back in the ring competing. So, it’s really cool and she and I have this mutual respect for one another. And she is always very supportive of any ideas I have creatively and when it comes to matches she kind of gives me free reign because she trusts me that way.

Madison Rayne On Who She Would Like To Face Next: I was really excited about getting into the ring with Tessa Blanchard. I feel she will be mentioned at the end of her career in the same breath as a Gail Kim or Trish Stratus.

Madison Tells Where She Hopes To See Women’s Wrestling In The Future: If it weren’t for Gail Kim, Traci Brooks and Christy Hemme there wouldn’t be a Knockout Division now. They weren’t afraid to step up and use their voice for something they believe in. And the fact that Impact management at the time gave them the ball saying, “here you go run with it’.  It just speaks to how Impact Wrestling has been supportive of women for a long time. As far as where women’s wrestling is now. I don’t think it’s ever been in a better place…. Had it not been for that match between Alundra Blayze vs. Bull Nakano all those years ago and the women that came years before us; we would not have had the platform to do what we are doing in 2018.

Mitchell’s AEW Continental Classic Update! (11/27/23)

What a start to the tournament!



Did your picks win points?

The AEW Continental Classic is underway, with almost everyone competing. Check in here if you haven’t seen the winners and losers of week 1!

Here are your Gold League standings!

  • Jon Moxley: 1-0, 3 points
  • Swerve Strickland: 1-0, 3 points
  • Jay White: 1-0, 3 points
  • Rush: 0-1, 0 points
  • Mark Briscoe: 0-1, 0 points.
  • Jay Lethal: 0-1, 0 points


Here are your Blue League standings!

  • Brody King: 1-0, 3 points
  • Claudio Castagnoli: 1-0, 3 points
  • Daniel Garcia: 0-1, 0 points
  • Eddie Kingston: 0-1, 0 points
  • Bryan Danielson: Yet to Compete
  • Andrade El Idolo: Yet to Compete


My Thoughts:

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.

Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.

In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
