1/2 of the former Knockout tag champions Rosita could be on her way out from Impact Wrestling (TNA). According to people her profile has been removed from the website, usually signaling a release from a company.
Impact’s website is currently down for an unknown reason at the time, so they could be fixing errors. People have saw on her official twitter that Rosita has also removed TNA Knockout from her bio.
If Rosita is in fact released she will be following – Winter, Velvet Sky and Angelina Love who were all released just in the last 2 months.
Rosita is a young addition to the roster, holding the TNA Knockout tag titles with tag partner Sarita. Both ladies competed alongside Anarquia and Hernandez as Mexican America, until Anarquia was released from the company. Hernandez has went on to team with Chavo Guerrero, and Rosita/Sarita have not been seen since around April.
Hopefully Impact or Rosita will inform the fans on this soon – It would be a huge mistake for Impact to let such a talented young star go through their grasp.
Well it seems like Winter has came and gone from another company.
If you recall, Winter was previously Katie Lea who was released from WWE after not being used on tv. When she stepped foot in Impact Wrestling (TNA) everyone was pleased to see her pushed to the front of the division. After 2 Knockout title wins and 1 Knockout Tag title win, Winter was thrown to the back of the pack…. not appearing on tv since April.
Winter was signed on to an indy ippv B.L.O.W, which is against TNA’s contract rules – which states that Impact stars can compete in indy shows as long as they don’t appear on ppvs’. To top this off Winter has been making a killing on the indies scene, becoming womens champion in multiple promotions.
Sadly enough, Winter’s TNA Contract ended yesterday (September 5th) and was not resigned to a new contract. No word on if it was Winter or Impact that decided not to resign the contract. Either way it is extremely upsetting that Impact dropped the ball with yet another Knockout, Winter is a great female talent that seems to be disrespected by every ‘large’ promotion she signs too. With that being said Winter is doing amazing on the indy scene, check her out wherever you can find her.
Winter is the 3rd Knockout to leave Impact Wrestling (TNA) since August. Winter’s tag partner Angelina Love asked for her release from the company – soon after Love’s former tag partner Velvet Sky opted not to resign to a new contract – and now Winter was not signed to a new contract. YIKES!
One rule Impact Wrestling has with it’s roster is, you can appear at any indy show….just as long as it’s not on ppv.
Many Impact fans figured Velvet Sky was on her way out after being announced for an indy ippv show. This is no different, for fans of Winter – are holding on to hope that this is a different case.
Winter is scheduled for B.L.O.W ippv on October 11th, which would be in violation of her Impact contract. After this news was broke many fans have a feeling Winter might have been the 2nd (well 3rd) Knockout to ask the company for a release.
Although nothing has been confirmed as of yet, Angelina Love and Vevlet Sky just recently were released from the company.
Winter, 2x Knockouts Champion and 1x Knockout Tag Champion has been off tv since April 6th. It is said ever since Bruce Prichard took over creative, Winter has disapeared from Impact completly.
She has been competing all over the indy circut, most recenty holding the FCW Championship for an impressive number of months.
Velvet Sky posted on Twitter the following statments after a wildfire of rumors started that she asked for her release and did not sign a new contract:
“I have been granted my release by TNA at this time. It’s what’s best for me right now and I wanted to thank TNA and all the fans for their constant support in me. Stay tuned though..” – and “And I also want to thank Vince Russo for creating and believing in the team of The Beautiful People. We had a great run!
Velvet Sky’s best friend and long time tag partner, Angelina Love – asked for her release earlier this month.
Sky has been off Impact shows for almost 2 months prior to her release, where as Love was off for almost 4.
Velvet Sky is only the 2nd Knockout to ask for her release, but as some dirtsheets reported earlier this month there was 2 Knockouts who were thinking about asking for their release…
There are rumors already circling that WWE is interested in recently released Knockout Angelina Love.
A while back there was rumors that WWE was looking at TNA and ROH talents for scouting. In the rumor it stated that Velvet Sky and Angelina Love were two of the Knockouts they were interested in.
As of right now Angelina Love’s next project is top secret, and no official word if WWE is indeed interested in the 5x Knockouts Champion and 1x Knockut Tag Champion
Angelina Love, the only 5x Knockout Champion in TNA history has been granted her release on June 30/July 1st.
She posted the following statement on her Twitter ” To all my wonderful fans, just want to let you know I have been granted my release from TNA. It was completely amicable parting of ways and I want to thank TNA and all of its employees for the wonderful journey I’ve had there over the years. Now I’m on to the next amazing chapter of my life! If you are looking to book me please contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you so much! “
Love hasn’t said much about what her next plans involve but, everyone on Impacts roster agrees that she will be successful whatever it is. Angelina has been off Impact tv since April alongside fellow Knockouts Winter (now Fwe Champion), Rosita and Sarita (competing under the name Dark Angel in Mexico).
Many fans are not suprised at the fact she asked for her release, many feel Angelina should have been competing for the Knockouts Championship but seemed to get lost in the scuffle.
TNA recently hired a new Knockout as well in OVW star Taeler Hendrix, that could have been an add plus to asking for a release in other fans’ eyes.
However Angelina is not the only TNA star who recently asked for their release, Shannon Moore, who wrestled in the XDivision as the prince of punk has also asked and been granted his release.
