In a recent interview with WrestleZone, former TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion Taylor Wilde revealed the original plans for her IMPACT Wrestling return, noting that prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, she was scheduled to be part of the IMPACT LockDown 2020 event in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
Wilde, who has been retired from the ring since 2011 said, “Truth be told, because I have quite a history with the people who work at IMPACT, formerly TNA, it was like a tryout situation for the both of us. I know I love wrestling and I’m excited to get back in the ring, but it’s been a long time, so to make sure it’s something that I really wanted and if I was really into it, it would have gone from there.
Then there’s the simple fact that I’m Canadian and these are American dates, so there’s a lot of paperwork that goes into that, so Windsor, it all seemed like a good fit. When they opened, although I could travel as an essential worker, the problem being is I would still need an American work visa and compounded with that, I am a frontline worker, I’m a firefighter and dealing with a vulnerable community. If I were to travel, I would then have to be quarantined for two weeks and miss two weeks of work, it was something that on all angles, did not make sense.”
