Madison Rayne Becomes New Remix Pro Wrestling Women’s Fury Champion
MARIETTA, OHIO – Remix Pro Wrestling’s bi-annual “Throwdown for the Pound” events have become one of the most-talked about live wrestling presentations, not just in southern Ohio, but throughout surrounding states as well, as talent and fans alike converge on the Marietta Middle School for an environment and atmosphere that is always one of energy and intrigue. A packed crowd at Remix’s “Throwdown for the Pound 18” on September 15 witnessed a number of memorable matches and newsworthy moments, but perhaps none more important than the crowning of Madison Rayne as the NEW Remix Pro Wrestling Women’s Fury Champion, besting previous titleholder Britt Baker.
Rayne is no stranger to championship glory, having held the Impact Wrestling Knockouts Title a near-record five times, and their now-defunct Knockout Tag Titles twice. However, over the past six months, Rayne’s status in professional wrestling has risen to heights rarely seen, as the “Queen Bee” has arguably been the top free agent in all of women’s professional wrestling, if not the entire industry as a whole. Madison has made the most of her status – if there has been a culturally relevant pro wrestling supercard in recent times, it’s almost a guarantee that Madison Rayne was involved. From being one of the most prominent athletes in the field of this year’s “Mae Young Classic”, to competing at the largest independent wrestling event in U.S.-history, “All In”, to challenging for the Ring of Honor “Women of Honor” Championship at a ROH Television Taping, and then traveling to an Impact Wrestling pay-per-view to challenge for the Knockouts Championship the very next night, Madison Rayne has literally been everywhere. However, Madison has roots in Ohio, where she started over a decade ago under monikers such as Lexi Lane and Ashley Lane, and it’s only fitting that Madison return home to add one more major event, and championship, to her ever-growing resume.
Remix Pro Wrestling has always valued women’s wrestling since its inception in 2010, always placing it’s female performers at a main event level even at a time when virtually no other primarily-male organizations were doing so. Names like Rayne, Mickie James, Sara Del Ray, and Lisa Marie Varon (Victoria/Tara) were featured on early cards and helped establish Remix as a place that let it’s female competitors flourish. Soon afterwards, the division gained it’s own championship, the Fury Title, a championship proudly worn by the likes of Del Ray, Sassy Stephie, and Tessa Blanchard. Now that Madison Rayne has re-assumed her throne in the same state where it all started for her, one can only assume the level of competition in the division will increase exponentially as Madison continues to build one of the largest waves of momentum in the entire industry.
