Taryn Terrell Announces Departure from TNA (January, 4th 2016)
Moments Ago, Taryn Terrell, whose status with TNA came under a lot of speculation through recent V-Logs and Rumors, posted a new Video via her YouTube Channel, confirming she is no longer under contract with the company. This comes 24 Hours before TNAs scheduled debut on Pop TV, in which Taryn will not be accompanying her Dollhouse Members, Jade, Marti and Rebel for their scheduled match. In Addition she revealed her recent marriage to her longtime partner, and in other V-Logs, addressed a conversion to religion that played into the toning down of her character and overall departure from the business.
Taryn, after being released by WWE in which she was both a General Manager for the ECW Brand and In Ring Competitor, eventually emerged in TNA in 2012 as a Knockouts Referee assigned by then Vice President to the Knockouts, Brooke Hogan. This Transitioned into a feud with Knockouts Veteran, Gail Kim, leading to Taryn transitioning into a full time wrestler for the Knockouts Division, truly receiving her breakout status through two major matches against Gail Kim in 2013.
In November 2014, Taryn went on to capture her 1st Knockouts Championship, months after returning from Pregnancy. She then turned heel Months later in a swerve move (for the first time in her Professional Wrestling Career) by defeating the returned Awesome Kong through the assistance of the debuted Dollhouse Duo of Jade and Marti Bell, thus Taryn retained her Knockouts Championship, with both Dollhouse members tactics ensuring her reign extended to the point where she surpassed Gail Kim’s Record as Longest Reigning Knockouts Champion. Taryn dropped the title to Brooke in July, and the Dollhouse began racking losses at the hands of a returned Gail Kim, and Taryn, out with a hand injury, teased the expansion of her villainous Dollhouse faction during her time away through vignettes, adding Rebel to the faction during her recovery in August, leading to the trio feuding with the reunited Beautiful People without Taryn. The Factions remained M.I.A during a pre taped world title series, shelving their feud until Tomorrows IMPACT, but with Taryn’s departure, the Dollhouse are furthermore reduced to Marti, Jade and Rebel.
Nonetheless Taryn easily broke out to become one of the best wrestlers in the Knockouts Division upon her transition to full time Wrestler in 2013, leaving behind memorable angles and matches, and the departure comes both shocking but expected at the same time. I Wish Taryn all the best with her future.
