Recently, I came across some news that Jimmy Rave would be making his debut for Absolute Intense Wrestling on April 8th, 2017. For the last several years, Rave hadn’t been getting a lot of attention working mostly independents in the Carolinas & Georgia area. In 2015, Rave was signed on with Global Force Wrestling, which has yet to really take off. After scrolling through Twitter, I saw several fans praise the decision to bring in Rave to AIW.

Through the years, Impact Wrestling has had several opportunities to develop their own stars and not be dependent on former WWE stars. After a failed run in the early years of TNA, Monty Brown, a former accomplished football player, returned to the company in March 2004.
