Bound For Glory saw some unexpected changes, as Kylie Rae did not appear.
Kylie was scheduled to take on Deonna Purrazzo for the IMPACT Knockouts Championship at Bound For Glory 2020, but inexplicably wasn't featured. Instead, Su Yung replaced her and won the title from Purrazzo, leaving question marks about Kylie's status.
Fightful Select reported the following last week:
As of now, there is no official reason as to why Kylie Rae was not on the IMPACT Bound For Glory show. Those we spoke to in the company simply told us that they thought the match was still going to happen as of Friday, and earlier last week.
Fightful has learned that according to several wrestlers, Kylie drove in (with said wrestlers) to Nashville Friday, and was even inquiring about call times for Saturday to management. However, whenever those call times came, Kylie Rae did not appear. We should specify, members of the roster informed us that Kylie drove in, not IMPACT officially.
Throughout Saturday, the concern from the locker room grew, as nobody had heard from Kylie Rae or even an update on her status throughout the afternoon. The decision to have Su Yung replace Kylie Rae was made that afternoon. Talent has not been made aware of an injury, as rumored. She did withdraw from Black Label Pro at the Collective two weeks ago, citing an injury.
Multiple wrestlers reached out to people close to Kylie out of fear for the worst, and were just told she's alive and well. We've attempted to contact IMPACT Wrestling officially, as well as Kylie Rae on the manner, and will not speculate on the conditions of the absence.
Here's to hoping for the best for all involved.
