Kylie Rae out of Bound For Glory match against Deonna Purrazzo

This post was updated at 2 PM Eastern Sunday.

Impact Wrestling fans tuning into Bound For Glory Saturday were surprised to see that the top challenger to Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo -- Kylie Rae -- didn't challenge the champion as advertised.

It was said on the PPV that she was a no show and our Bryan Alvarez was initially told it was due to a non-serious injury. However, we were later told that wasn't the case and that no announcement was made because the company did not know the situation at the time. All that is known right now is that she was in Nashville ready to work on Friday and did not come to the building on Saturday.

Rae has been active on the indies between Impact taping dates, wrestling as recently as two weeks ago.

Purrazzo issued an open challengeĀ on the show and Su Yung, the former Knockouts Champion, answered. Since 2019, she had been known as Susie, an alter ego of the Yung character that had forgotten her past. Yung, who had been aligned with Rae in recent weeks, defeated Purrazzo to begin her second title reign.

The 28-year-old Rae signed a long-term deal with Impact in March after requesting her release from AEW in 2019. She had earned the title shot with a win in the Gauntlet For The Gold match at July's Slammiversary.
