Killer Kelly reveals she has been contracted to Impact Wrestling for the past two years

Former NXT UK talent says visa issues have prevented her from competing in the United States

Killer Kelly has explained her two-year absence from television after Impact Wrestling promoted her return.

Kelly competed in the 2018 Mae Young Classic and completed a stint with NXT UK before being released in 2020. She then debuted for Impact Wrestling but has been absent from the product for two years.

Speaking to Steve Fall of SE Scoops, Kelly explained the issues that led to her disappearance from Impact. She outlined that, after visiting her home country of Portugal shortly after signing with Impact, the Covid pandemic left her unable to travel and complicated efforts to secure a visa.

“Well, you have to ask the good ol’ United States of America (why she hasn’t been wrestling). Its legalities, legalities, legalities…It was a very tedious process, which Impact dealt with wonderfully. They took care of everything, but it was a horrible process. They were wonderful about it. After they offered the contract, I had to go back to Portugal. Then I was stuck in Portugal.

They did everything in their power to get me out of Portugal. It was a visa process that started in Portugal, and then it didn’t pan out. Then I had to come to the United States and start all over again. It was a whole process. But finally, I can say that I’m part of Impact. I can finally work and I am excited.”
