Impact Wrestling: Rosemary is the true heart and soul of the company


Rosemary is a major factor for Impact Wrestling.

When mentioning the heart and soul of Impact Wrestling, names like Sami Calihan, Eddie Edwards, and Madison Rayne have been brought up. While those statements are true, there is a wrestler who was literally the blood that pumped into the heart of the company. That wrestler is the enigmatic and charismatic former Knockouts champion, Rosemary.

After everything TNA and Impact Wrestling went through, Rosemary has led the way by entertaining fans in a multitude of ways creatively. It has given Impact a unique identity that makes them stand out from other wrestling promotions.

What Rosemary truly gives to Impact Wrestling.

It was befitting that Rosemary signed with TNA back in January 2016 to start the year off. She immediately made her presence felt as she joined a group known as Decay. Fans had no idea what they were truly in for as the dark enigmatic superstar made her presence felt, but they quickly learned and it changed the trajectory of Impact Wrestling.

During this time, Impact Wrestling started going through massive changes and there was doubt about the future. All of this came as Broken Matt Hardy ultimately changed the dynamic with a more cinematic approach, which was more closely associated with Lucha Underground at the time.

Ironically, Rosemary taking part in the Decay rivalry against Broken Matt Hardy was very symbolic of the changes that were happening to the company. It can also be argued that this rivalry saved Impact Wrestling from going completely under.

More fans were solely interested in the Broken Matt Hardy and Decay rivalry and it felt different than any other rivalry seen on television at the time. The dynamic would carry over and leave a lasting effect on Impact Wrestling forever.

As time went by, Rosemary would become the Knockouts champion, but that isn’t the biggest part of her career. What Rosemary has managed to accomplish is bigger than her winning titles throughout her career.

Rosemary made Impact Wrestling her home and introduced fans to many elements of her own dark, creative, and humorous world. This has included the Undead Realm and the memorable reality segment known as Wrestle House.

The dark superstar only became more comfortable releasing elements of her own mind for Impact Wrestling fans to witness. Some of the segments became integral parts of Impact Wrestling programming, while others will hopefully become an annual segment.

If there is anyone who has the creativity and innovation to entertain wrestling fans in a new way in the midst of a global pandemic, Rosemary is definitely the one. During the pilot Wrestle House, it became clear that Rosemary had something special planned.

The show itself was so creative and well done with the aspect of wrestling that fans tend to forget about. Wrestling should be fun and not so serious about title reigns, dominance, and ego. Rosemary had a lot more in mind to satisfy her insatiable appetite and it was a ride the whole way as she pursued John E. Bravo.

After Wrestle House ended, it wasn’t the end of the chaos from the lasting effects that it left on Impact Wrestling. Fans wondered if that was truly the end of Wrestle House since Rosemary only ramped up the Undead Realm’s role on Impact Wrestling.

Some time went by, and Rosemary gave us the best holiday cheer with Wrestle House 2 just last year. Unlike the previous Wrestle House which was segments spread out over the show, the whole segment was presented in two hours as a special episode.

Rosemary ramped up the drama and showed that when she has a hidden agenda pertaining to fellow Impact Wrestling stars, it changes the game. They were forced to live and wrestle against each other to solve any rivalries and conflicts, and it left fans saying: I love this match!

It has truly opened up the world to unlimited possibilities and Rosemary leads the way as the music maker of these worlds. Beyond Wrestle House, it introduces an intriguing element that adds to the already booming Knockouts division.

It has taken everyone from former Knockouts champion Tasha Steelz to the former Knockouts tag team champions the Influence. No one is exempt from experiencing the psychological world of Rosemary and it really shows how far she has come as a primary segment that fans look forward to on Impact Wrestling every week.

Since Taya Valkyrie came back to Impact Wrestling, she has immediately been drawn by Rosemary. They since won the Knockouts tag team championship belts together and have to take on all challengers.

It’s never just about defending titles and her second Knockouts tag team title reign is no exception. Rosemary now has to deal with the dilemma that the monstrous Havok is now the mimosa-loving Jessicka.

Once again, the Undead Realm has played a major role and made things more complicated than it is for any other wrestler. This has made the road to Impact Wrestling’s next event Emergence a not-so-easy road for Rosemary.

Nothing is ever easy when it comes to Rosemary whether it’s a title reign, Wrestle House, or just being a top challenger for all titles. One thing is for sure, Rosemary has given Impact Wrestling life by introducing many aspects of her world and she has never disappointed fans throughout the years.

It’s hard to imagine Impact Wrestling without Rosemary and that’s the power she literally possesses that draws people in with her unpredictable world. She continues to be a beloved superstar who brings life to Impact Wrestling every Thursday in a fantastic way on AXS TV.
