There are two large parts to this announcement:

  1. The BIG3 ABSOLUTELY needed this information to leak. It is a big advertising and marketing transfer for the league they usually need to make as many headlines as attainable whereas Clark is in the course of her pursuit of a Nationwide Championship.
