Angelina Love has parted ways with GFW.

The six-time Knockouts Champion has announced on Twitter that she has been granted her release from GFW writing the following:

I asked for my release from @IMPACTWRESTLING and it was granted today. Thank you for the years of fun and much love to all my fans!!!

Angelina returned to GFW at the start of the year, where she was paired alongside Davey Richards. The duo would go on to feud with Eddie Edwards and Alisha Edwards that came to an end at this year’s Slammiversary where they lost to the Edwards in a Full Metal Mayhem match.

This puts an end to Angelina’s latest GFW run. She had previously left the company three times before, in 2009, 2012 and 2016.

What are your memories of Angelina’s most recent run with GFW?

  • HOLLA

    You can’t blame her. Regardless, Angie put in some quality work at Impacg over the years. She will go down as one of the greatest of all time, to me at least. She had charisma, a look, mic skills, legit wrestling ability and she put on some quality matches alongside the best of em. Wish she could’ve gone out with a bang, or at least got to participate in the Mae Young Classic!! Either way, Love is one of my personal favorites and love her or hate her, you can’t deny she was talented.

    • Gavin

      She’s the total package.

  • What? Again, nooo! Well at least gave us a good final match at Slammiversary and put over for a moment Alisha Edwards.

    • Gavin

      I wouldn’t be surprised if Alisha left, too. She was cute, but she was totally riding Eddie’s coattails. I don’t see her going anywhere in GFW as a singles wrestler.

      • Wicked Emma

        She was aligned with her husband. And she’s not riding his coattails.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    She stay coming and going! I have never seen someone leave a company and comeback so much.

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      What about Chris Jericho?

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Him too! But in his defense though he has other obligations that keeps coming and going. Angelina is a mother yes! But we all know Impact works really well in scheduling wrestlers who have children.

        • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

          True

      • Wicked Emma

        This is about GFW not WWE

        • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

          Well they said they never seen a person come and go from a company so much they didn’t say which specific company

    • Gavin

      In her defense, she had visa problems and became a mom. This time, she probably just got tired of being wasted!

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I forgot about the visa thing

      • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

        no, shes going to medical school

        • Gavin

          Yes, but she’s still wrestling on the indies and so is Davey, so it’s not like she retired.

  • Not too surprising. After all, she only had maybe two matches since she came back; she’s probably bored. I would say I’d like to see her in WWE/NXT, but I think that ship has sailed (that, and I low-key think she’d get the “Gail Kim” treatment if she ever hit the main roster).

  • A?.

    I’m not even surprised, they used her like what, two times? GFW writers are a mess, they barely use their knockouts now or just use the same every two weeks (Sienna, Rosemary, Allie as manager, now Gail and that’s it)

    • Summer_Slay #GiveSummerAChance

      “(Sienna, Rosemary, Allie as manager, now Gail and that’s it)”

      Well, thats basically the whole roster lol.
      LVN is also used very often. And Alisha and Angelina had a feud prior to Angelina’s release.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    A mess. GFW/TNA needs to close. Gail and Angelina were the only two saving the company.

  • Wicked Bliss

    I read somewhere that she was seen in an NXT event. Not concluding anything but who knows.

    • Gavin

      I’m doubtful, but it would a great surprise! They brought Serena back (for the Classic at least).

  • Typical Heel

    This better be her last time in TNA, its time for her WWE run, I would put her on Raw right away

    • Summer_Slay #GiveSummerAChance

      Her WWE ended in 2007.

  • vdcvt

    At least Angelina’s last run was still pretty cool. I enjoyed her matches and renewed ruthlessness.

  • conan_kun

    How many times does she return and release already.

    • Gavin

      Does it matter? A lot of wrestlers do it.

  • Well there goes Gail’s best option for a retirement match.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Yeah I was really hoping for a triple threat with Gail, Angelina, and Madison. Is Melina still working the indies? She’d be a great option, but with Jomo TNA bound I doubt that will happen..

      • Melina is still injured I think, but hasn’t stopped making appearances so let’s hope they can work something out. Gail deserves better.

      • Typical Heel

        I wanted that Melina/Gail Bad Friend storyline they created to happen so bad but WWE refused to let it shine smh, maybe TNA can pick up Melina, Jomo isn’t in the company yet, I heard he’s going back to WWE

    • Typical Heel

      Any chance Kharma will return for Gail’s retirement match?

      • Gavin

        She’ll probably be filming GLOW.

  • 3???????

    See you next year sis ?

    • Gavin

      I hope so. It seems this was her last run, though, because Davey and her are going to school to become a doctor and a nurse.

      • 3???????

        Doctor ? Damn good luck

        • Gavin

          Right. He won’t become a doctor until he’s at least 40.

  • It’s a shame cause we didn’t get to see Angelina vs.Gail for the last time. Also her matches with Allie, Rosemary and Sienna could have been cute. Another wasted run. Her storyline with Davey was good tho.

  • Gavin

    I can’t believe they wasted their greatest female talent on that Eddie/Davey feud. Sure, you could argue that Gail is the best wrestler, but Angelina could work the mic as a heel and face. I thought she had at least one more Knockouts title run in her. GFW is beyond dead to me.

    • Windyhawaii

      Angelina clearly stated she asked for her release. That feud was actually pretty enjoyable to watch, idk why you’re blaming GFW for something they couldn’t control. She asked for her release, they granted it.

      • Gavin

        She probably asked for her release because they spent half a year just using her to enhance her husband instead of letting her actually participate in the Knockouts division. She got booked like once a month if she was lucky.

        • Windyhawaii

          It is not as if they could just use her every week, GFW is in the very beginning after just buying out a company that was running to the ground.

          • Gavin

            They don’t have a problem using Sienna, Allie, Laurel, and Rosemary.

          • Windyhawaii

            i never said they didn’t. I said it would be a problem adding Angelina into that and it would hog up what they already have going on

  • Windyhawaii

    Okay so I get GFW is kind of in a mess right now, and I agree, but a lot of people here are saying Angelina got wasted and are blaming GFW for this. She asked for her release, she wanted this. You can’t blame GFW for granting her request. That’s just ignorant.

    • Gavin

      You don’t even get it. She probably asked for her release because she was there for 7 months and they barely ever even booked her. She’s 34, and she doesn’t have time to sit in the back like MJ Jenkins or Ava Storie. If they’re not gonna slap a title on her shoulder, she can find a company who can.

      • Summer_Slay #GiveSummerAChance

        Can she tho?

        • Gavin

          yes she is EWE Valkyrie Champion right now

      • Windyhawaii

        They wouldn’t slap a title on her because she’s already had it more than enough times. Lol, another would be stupid with the current feud between Rose and Sienna and Ally.

        • Gavin

          She can’t have it too many times. Every title run she has is good, just too short.

          • Windyhawaii

            Fair enough, but putting it on her at that time would have been dumb. They did that last time she returned and it didn’t end well

          • Gavin

            Her last run was great. Gail is the one who ruined it.

          • Windyhawaii

            Her last run was awful and boring. It was in a gross part of TNA when there were about 5 or 6 active knockouts and the beautiful people had like 2 people to fight.

          • HOLLA

            I honestly would’ve loved to see her feud with Rosemary. EIther face or heel I think they could’ve put on some stellar matches and quite a good story, tbh.

    • HOLLA

      I think the point is more so the reason she asked for it, ya know?

      • Windyhawaii

        but as a veteran, if her reason really was that she wasn’t being used then that is pretty selfish since there was a long standing feud going on between two of the main girls.

  • Aye Mate

    Oh?

  • I give it 8 months before she decides she needs a paycheck from them again.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    How many times has she gone and came back lol

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    As lovely as she is, hopefully they don’t count on her again for the KO division. She’s had her time and we know how much GFW/TNA love to rely on old female talents…
    There are many talented female talent on the indies. Rely on some who will remain loyal and will stay more than a year or a even a program because that’s not how you’re going to build your division…

    • Gavin

      Seriously? If anything, they needed to rely on her more. With Gail going, she is the one who could have spiced up the division, but they just used her to make a men’s feud look better. She would have probably stayed if she had gotten booked better (or booked at all). When you’re a Knockout legend and people just treat you like you’re another new kid on the block, why wouldn’t you want to leave? She wasn’t getting the respect she deserved despite carrying the division for YEARS while Gail was doing legs matches in WWE.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Because she was badly used? If anything, her use was good enough having her own story outside of this sorry KO division with her husband which I am sure she enjoyed. You don’t have to be involved in the women’s division and if anything, it was different than what we’ve seen since we basically seen it all about her in TNA/GFW.

        Plus, considering SHE is the one who granted her release, them not relying on her in the women division wasn’t a bad thing…
        Not to mention, appearantly, her husband is leaving because he is going to a medical school this was part of the reason why she left. Not her use at all.

        • Gavin

          I doubt she would have left if they gave her the title, but they were too busy with basic bitches like Sienna who can’t even choose a gimmick.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            “I doubt she would have left if they gave her the title”
            But you don’t give the title to someone just so they could stay…

          • Gavin

            You think Gail Kim has stayed around to be a jobber? No. If you want to keep your best talent, you have to give them the best treatment.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            That was HER decision to leave. She didn’t leave because of her treatment which was good enough but due to personal reasons not related to wrestling. GFW is NOT to blame in this situation.

          • Gavin

            She still wrestles for plenty of companies that actually book her so

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Well, that’s her choice… GFW is planning to go on the road. Maybe it’s simply not something she can do. So many things we don’t know but things we know is that SHE asked for her release and she has shown ZERO sign of unhappiness during her time there.

  • Jfizzle

    I would have loved one more title run for A Love but if she’s not into it and just wants to be a mom props to her. We all know the ship has sailed on any sort of WWE run. They have so many girls they don’t use now on all three brands so it would be a waste.

  • Tunasha

    I guess we all know she’ll come back probably next year lol.

    It has been hard to take the KOs division seriously for the past couple of years, they come and go like if it didn’t mean nothing, the whole Impact roster tbh.

  • Gavin

    GFW is so embarrassing. They are seriously ruining their legacy. I had faith in them to become better after Angelina returned, but since she’s gone, they should just hang up the boots.

  • Nicola Byrne

    Hardly surprised!!

    • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

      she left causes shes goning into nursing school

  • Angelina for NXT!

  • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

    This site disgust me when It comes to GFW. Especially these comments.

  • Miguel

    TNA no longer offers good for women, as much as Gail is trying to help and I admire her efforts, without her name in a storyline, is usualy lazy. Rosemary should be leaving soon and try to get a WWE run but I’m sure that they will not allow her to do her character elsewhere.

  • Summer_Slay #GiveSummerAChance

    At least she gave us one good last match. Metal Mayhem Davey/Angelina vs Eddie/Alisha was the match of the night. They did amazing job.

  • Dysfunctional

    Madison is also gone…

    • Andy Salcedo

      Isn’t she on or was on their creative team? Plus, I think she still does her “With this Ring” show with her husband Josh Mathews

      • Dysfunctional

        I read on another dirt sheet that she has parted ways with the company.
