- TNA Wrestling has parted ways with two British talents in Mark Haskins and Winter, PWInsider.com reports. The organization released Haskins from his contract and opted not to renew the former Women’s Knockout Champion’s deal after it expired last week. Both individuals have been removed from the company website’s roster page, thus confirming their respective departures.
Haskins had not appeared for the promotion since a January 2012 Impact Wrestling taping in his home country where he lost to Austin Aries in an X Division Championship Match. During the match, Haskins suffered a concussion and a neck injury, rendering him inactive for several months.
Winter’s official fansite, K-Waters.net, first announced last week that she had parted ways with the company. The website stated, “Just wanted to make an update and let everyone know Kat’s contract with TNA is officially up! Which means she is free to do DVDs, bookings, iPPVs, and whatever else! If interested please send emails to email@example.com.”
- During Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling, former WWE Superstar Carlito joked on Twitter that TNA should favor Rob Terry and his ilk over wrestlers of the X Division.
“This TNA Xdivision should be eliminated! Nobody wants to see entertaining lil athletic wrestlers that can actually wrestle anymore!” he wrote. “We should start a petition to get rob terry a mega push! All he needs is another layer of fake tanner & 20 oz more of baby oil! C’mon TNA!”
