Nowadays the independent wrestling scene (Before COVID) is loaded with talent female athletes who are looking to get their break into the big leagues and Impact is certain the place to be for that big break.
So with that said, here are Eight Female Athletes That Impact Wrestling Should Consider Signing.
8. Alexia Nicole
Much like a lot of Canadian wrestlers who've performed recently in Impact Wrestling, many fans want see Alexia Nicole to be given a bigger stage to show what see can do in the ring, plus considering she's appeared in promotions like Border City Wrestling (the same promotion that Impact Executive Scott D'Amore owns and operates) she could be the next home grown talent for the promotion if she's given the oppertunity.
Alexia Nicole vs. Sienna GreekTown Wrestling:
Wrestling in some of the most well known female promotions in the U.S. like SHIMMER and RISE while also taking on names like Shotzi Blackheart, Kiera Hogan and Kylie Rae, Angela "Queen" Arnold aka AQA is another hot prospect who has a bright future in pro wrestling.
If AQA was to get signed by Impact Wrestling it's not to hard to imagine her joining forces with the likes of the aforementioned Kiera Hogan and Tasha Steelz to form some kind of faction that could pose a threat to the knockouts in the locker room while also acquiring championship gold in the process.
Kylie Rae vs. AQA vs. Hyan:
6. Jody Threat
Known as the "Wild Child" of pro wrestling, Threat has wrestled in a number of promotions both in and outside her home country of Canada like Divine Pro Wrestling , CLASH, Limitless Wrestling and AAW.
One of Jody's stand out moves is her riding her skateboard and hitting a hurricanrana on her opponent outside of the ring; She's also a hard hitting style of wrestler which makes sense as Jody Threat looks like the type of women you could see being at home wrestling in street fights or in Impact's case, Monster's Ball or Last Knockout Standing Matches.
In short, Jody Threat is just the kind of person that Impact wrestling would need if they want a female wrestler who can not only stand out from the rest of the locker room but also put on a good match inside the ring.
5. Lana Austin
In addition to her expertise as a wrestler, Lana Austin is also known for having some sexual moments in her matches whether it's rapidly kissing former WWE wrestler Melina Perez or showing off her...assets before many of her matches, Lana certainty isn't afraid to show off what she's got but once starts wrestling in the ring she proves that she's more that just a pretty face.
Impact would need some like Lana Austin on their roster as she's a good wrestler who likes to show off some TNA in her matches much like Katie Forbes or the Beautiful People but her involvement in Impact could get her a larger following in the states and it could help Impact to get back more of a foothold in the United Kingdom and help to revive the British Wrestling scene that has been hit with tremendous amount of scandals and shut downs over the last couple of years.

4. KC Spinelli
Like Alexia Nicole, Spinelli also wrestled in various Canadian promotions like Border City Wrestling and she's also taken on names like Courtney Rush (aka Rosemary in Impact), Tessa Blanchard and Allie; Meanwhile in Impact she's wrestled names like Rosemary, Laurel Van Ness, Hania The Huntress and Sienna putting on some performances that have manage to increase her stock and reputation in wrestling.
Spinelli is also quite the athlete as she's had participated in numerous sports like gymnastics, hockey, Karate and amateur wrestling among many others. She's also done a couple of interviews with Josh Matthews on Around The Ring that has allowed fans to get to know her better while also showing off more her personality.
Overall, she is a talented in many trades and although rumors of WWE being interested in her haven't really lead to anything, Impact could seize the moment and sign KC Spinelli to an exclusive contract.

Wrestling since late 1990's at the age of 17, Lufisto has wrestled in numerous promotions with most popular being CZW, Shimmer and Shine Wrestling where she's wrestled both women and men during her career and achieved many accolades.
Despite this, she hasn't been seen in a major capacity when to comes to the bigger stages of the wrestling world. Given that the Knockouts Division has always prided itself by having some of the best unsigned talent outside of the WWE machine, it's shocking that Lufisto hasn't been seen on Impact Wrestling.
While health issues did indeed slow her progression, she has reportedly made a recovery; Not to mention that even Impact fans have been clamoring on social media for the company to sign her already. Whether the company has any interest in her remains unknown but her participation as seasoned veteran who can help to grow the future stars of women's wrestling couldn't hurt.

2. Lacey Ryan
From there she wrestled two times in Impact, once against "Thick Mama Pump" Jordynne Grace for the Knockouts Championship and then one week later against Kiera Hogan; Despite losing both of those matches, many fans were amazed at how she was able to keep up with some of the Knockouts.
Outside of her brief time in Impact, Lacey has wrestled names like Heather Monroe and Tessa Blanchard while winning championship gold in the process
Since her two matches on Impact, many fans have been asking the higher ups in Impact Wrestling to not only give her another shot but give her a contract with the promotion as well and if her tweets and videos on social media is any indication, she wants to be signed by a major promotion as soon as possible.
If Impact Wrestling is smart then they wouldn't let this talented female slip pass their fingers.
Lacey Ryan vs. Kiera Hogan:
1. Killer Kelly
Known more in the independent scene, Killer Kelly's work has seen her win championship like the wXw women's championship and has face off against many wrestlers like Toni Storm, Dakota Kai, Valkyrie (not Taya Valkyrie), Lufisto and more.
Her biggest exposure in mainstream wrestling say her take part in the Mae Young Classic Tournament and WWE's The United Kingdom Tournament in 2018, however she's didn't do much in her time in the WWE as she left the promotion in January of this year.
So why should Impact management consider on signing Killer Kelly? For starters she has a look that screams "Cool Factor" in addition to her technical and smash mouth style of wrestling; Furthermore her presence onscreen and the company's experience in introducing new stars has been second to none as of late could get fans interested in seeing her wrestle in Impact and that's not even to take into a count the number of dream matches she could have with names like Taya Valkyrie, Kylie Rae, Deonna Purrazzo, Rosemary, Su Yung and the list goes on
Plus could you imagine the crowd constantly chanting "Kelly's Gonna Kill You!" in all of her matches and the company could make a pretty awesome t-shirt or hoodie designs with that phrase on the front or back...so yeah you'd have an impressive female athlete on your roster, a built in chant that the fans will say every time she comes out and the chance of making some profit off of t-shirt and hoodie merch is right their for the pickings.
