Traci Brooks released

Pwinsider.com reported earlier today that Traci Brooks has been released from her contract, and though she has not been used to her full potential in recent months, her release puts a huge exclamation mark on the recent signs that the Knockouts division is going in the wrong direction—as many predicted with the new era in TNA…

Traci BrooksWhile the division will be around for months to come, it’s demise will be the fact that it will be WWE Divas-lite. Traci Brooks has often been considered “The Original Knockout,” and with her gone, goes the historic significance of her 7 years in the company, where she wrestled the majority to the women wrestlers that have graced the promotion. Her release comes at a time where we have lost Alissa Flash, the knockouts television time being significantly reduced since January 4, an overdose of The Beautiful People, and Awesome Kong’s future in TNA unconfirmed. It should be noted that while Kong posted a questionable tweet this week on her status (Awesome Kong TNA status update), her profile remains in TNAwrestling.com, while Traci’s has been removed.

The TNA Knockouts Division has always been a place to see diversity, as opposed to the competition, where the image of WWE Divas have been to the specifications of Vince McMahon. The hiring of models, and female wrestlers that can fit that description, excluded the chance to see women like Awesome Kong, ODB, Alissa Flash, Traci Brooks, Daffney, Sojo Bolt, Roxxi, and many others. The Knockouts division was also defined by multiple women’s matches on Impact and pay-per-views, something rare in the WWE. This is slowly, or rather… rapidly becoming something of the past.

Traci Brooks had the following to say on her release…

Just wanted to take this time to say yes i was released yesterday afternoon from TNA. There is nothing to report or any stories on why…simply they had nothing for me. I loved my time at TNA and will look back at my seven years with them with great fondness. TNA is a family and unfortunately this is the nature of the beast with family members coming and going. I will still be wrestling and doing conventions just like i have been this whole time. Thank you to the ring crew, camera men, production, creative and of course the talent who i have shared so many good times with, my only sadness is not being able to say goodbye to these people in person. I do have my ebay store (tracibrooksdirect2u) where you can find traci brooks merch. My myspace which is tnaknockouttracibrooks and my facebook which is traci brooks i do not or have not ever had a twitter account and those 2 sites are my only social network…so if anyone is following me on twitter sorry to say its not me, as well as facebook..there is imposter’s but traci brooks is my only facebook account..thanks again to my fans for always supporting me and for all the great times i have had over the years. Looking forward to what life has in store for me..god bless..and please watch TNA monday nights as i will still be cheering on my family including my husband :)
