With Jordynne Grace’s contract with IMPACT set to expire in May 2021 speculation continues to gather pace about her next move.

Jordynne Grace has been a permanent fixture on IMPACT television since debuting with the company back in 2018, winning her fair share of plaudits along the way. The Austin, Texas native is a former Knockouts Champion and has enjoyed notable rivalries with new WWE signee Taya Valkyrie, Tenille Dashwood and Deonna Purrazzo amongst others. While she has also competed in inter-gender matches for the X Division Championship.

Speaking to the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Grace addressed her current contractual situation, explaining that while it’s a dream to compete for WWE, there are also positives that come with staying with IMPACT.

“Okay, so yes, WWE was, I mean it still is, it was my childhood dream forever. But that was the only option back when I was growing up. Now, it’s just like, there are so many doors that you can go through and kind of they’re all like in front of you at the same time. So I mean it’s kind of a handoff. I love the opportunity that IMPACT has given me but obviously it’s going to be a lot less money than WWE would give me if I were to go there and they would give me a lot less input on my character. So it just kind of depends on if I get older and I’m feeling like I need to be stacking some money for retirement then I think that’s a place I would probably go.”

However, Grace admits the simple truth is that she doesn’t know where she’ll end up once her current deal expires.

“So yes, I do think it’s all very strategic. Honestly, I have no idea what’s going to happen when my contract is up with IMPACT in May. I have no idea. I can’t foresee the future and who knows who’s going to offer me something or if I’m going to stay here. I truly have no idea, and that’s why wrestling isn’t the best career path for some people because it’s not very stable [laughs].”

Jordynne Grace was last seen in action at IMPACT Sacrifice, where she teamed with the veteran Jazz in an attempt to win the Knockouts Tag Team Titles. However, the formidable team eventually came up short in their efforts to win the titles, with Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz emerging victorious.
