Impact Wrestling revealed today that former Knockouts Champion Rosemary has signed a new deal with the company. The news was announced on Impact’s Press Pass podcast, and confirms the long-term presence of one of Impact’s most important competitors.
Impact Wrestling addressed Rosemary earlier today during Press Pass, revealing that she’d signed a new contract with the company and will “be around for a while.” An exact length for the contract or any other specifics were not revealed, but it’s good to know that Impact Wrestling can count on Rosemary’s stability and uniqueness to anchor the division moving forward.
Rosemary only received returned to action last month after spending eight months on the shelf due to a torn ACL. Since returning, Rosemary has been deeply embroiled in a supernatural storyline involving her former friend Allie and former rival Su Yung.
Since before her injury, and all the way to the present, this supernatural tale has been one of Impact Wrestling’s most unusual and engaging stories. We’ve seen Allie, once a happy-go-lucky and bouncy as can be fan favorite, turn into a dark shell of her former self. The rivalry has even seen the return of legendary wrestling manager James Mitchell who has been a force negotiating the connection to “The Undead Realm.”
Rosemary is a former Knockouts Champion, and was a part of the Impact Wrestling faction Decay with Crazzy Steve and “The Monster” Abyss. While Abyss recently left the company to sign with WWE, Crazzy Steve appeared at Impact Wrestling’s tapings in January and Wrestling Inc. reported that Rosemary stated she was “very interested” in teaming with Steve again in the future.
Rosemary’s signing also marks the third name in the company that has reportedly signed a new contract this week. Wrestling Inc. also reported that Sami Callihan and Fallah Bahh did the same. With companies like Ring of Honor and All Elite Wrestling stepping up to bat when it comes to acquiring top talent, Impact Wrestling is smart to lock down some of their most unique and beloved stars.
This also provides the chance for Rosemary to continue her presence in RISE Wrestling, which currently has a partnership with Impact Wrestling. Rosemary continued to have a place with RISE even while recovering from injury, managing the team of Dust and Raven’s Ash. Collectively known as Paradise Lost, the duo have held the Guardians of RISE Championship since July of 2018 and continue to be a dominant force in that company with Rosemary at their side.
This new deal with Impact will allow Rosemary to continue helping younger female talent that could one day find themselves in Impact Wrestling as well.
