Citing sources close to Impact Wrestling, Barrasso says that the companies are working on a deal to have Tenille Dashwood perform as an entrant into the 21-woman Casino Battle Royale, airing as part of the "Buy In" kickoff show.
Dashwood, formerly Emma in WWE, signed with Impact Wrestling at the end of July. She made her television debut with the company on Friday night's episode of Impact.
Dashwood's contract status with Impact has since been spotlighted, as Fightful learned that the the Australian grappler is on a "nightly deal through October."
Britt Baker, who is a participant in that 21-woman gauntlet, spoke at Friday's media scrum about wanting to work with Dashwood, saying, "I don't think she's officially under contract, but I love Tenille. I know she's working with Impact, but she's not officially contracted," which led to the attempts at clarifying Dashwood's status.
