Kylie Rae returning to wrestling Saturday night


Less than a month after getting her release from AEW, Kylie Rae will return to the ring Saturday night.

Chicago-based indie group Freelance Wrestling announced on Twitter Saturday afternoon that Rae would be stepping in for Shotzi Blackheart to face Isaias Velazquez in an intergender match at their Game of the Genders event Saturday night.

Blackheart is wrestling for both SHINE and EVOLVE Saturday, so it's unclear as to why the announcement for Rae, their former champion, was made on the afternoon of the show. The show isn't being streamed live, but will be available on at a later date.

This will be Rae's first in-ring action since she competed in a four-way at AEW's Double or Nothing PPV on May 25th.

Following the All Out pay-per-view, AEW owner Tony Khan announced that the 27-year-old was amicably released from her deal after she requested it and our Dave Meltzer has reported that everyone involved has been very quiet about the situation. As of this writing, her Twitter account is still deleted and she hasn't posted to her Instagram since late-July.
