It is still recent news that Taryn Terrell has once again left Impact Wrestling. A recent report from Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com (via PWMania) claims the reason was due to her being unable to travel into Canada, or even be allowed in Canada for a past altercation she had with former husband, Drew McIntyre.

This is also the reason Jim Cornette recently left as the company plans to tape shows in Canada moving forward. Terrell’s departure was said to be ‘amicable’ on both sides as there was no bad blood between the two sides.

However it is worth noting that the past incident between Terrell & McIntyre took place in Los Angeles, not Canada. Also her not being allowed in Canada does not explain why she has cancelled other wrestling appearances she had in the States. There could also be speculation that she would have left the company anyway once Gail Kim retired as she was brought back to feud with the Hall of Famer.

What are your thoughts? Is her ‘not being allowed in Canada’ the real reason? Is the whole Taryn leaving Impact story old/dead news and not worth reporting (insert shady emoji here)? Let us know in the comments!

    It didn’t really strike me as though Taryn was in it for the long haul anyway – and as much as she created magic with Gail before, I didn’t see that repeating itself at BFG.

    • MK126

      TBH it seems like once something GOOD is done in TNA its never the same when its redone. For example: Gail vs Kong when they first feuded was AMAZING and really put the Knockouts on the map. Fast forward to the return of Kong their matches didn’t have that same spark it once had which is odd because Gail became so much better as a whole in comparison to their prior matches. Taryn’s return didn’t make any sense seeing as how she left because she found Jesus and decided wrestling wasn’t her her because of how sexualized it made her… yet shes strolling around in tu-tus and panties with her ass hangin out.

      • Aye Mate

        Taryn and Gail never got to complete their best of three singles matches, and that would have been a great narrative to run for Gail’s retirement. Not this psycho-sexual rubbish, where Taryn’s playing a comic strip temptress teasing Gail over her husband. I’m not sad it’s over tbh.

        • MK126

          Like I said when they make magic once they cant do it a second time. The only time they made magic twice was when they redid TBP after Angelina left and then came back as a badass face

          • Aye Mate

            Agreed. Less said about Kong’s second run the better, too.

          • MK126

            Definitely!

  • Rosanna

    Wwe will never hire her I’m so sad.

  • BLKLTR05

    It’s some fucking bullshit that Taryn is STILL being punished for something that happened so long ago with her douchebag of a husband. First she loses her job with WWE over it and now this? The WWE seriously missed out on the amazing talent that is Taryn, all for some overrated piece of shit named Drew.

    • MK126

      But she was the aggressor in the situation…

      • BLKLTR05

        And? It’s been well over 5 years since this happened. Get the fuck over it Canada!

        • MK126

          That’s not something to just “get over” cause its been 5 years. TBH I don’t even know why she wouldn’t be allowed to travel to Canada just because of her domestic dispute. Its not like theres a warrant out for her arrest but that’s the way the cookie crumbles when you’re charged with a crime

          • A.j. Costello

            Canada doesn’t allow people to visit the country when they have felonies on their records. It’s not something they’ll just “get over”.

          • Joseph

            Yep exactly

        • Joe Mendiola

          It takes 10 years in Canada to consider a blocked foreigner officially rehabilitated. That’s why they have fewer yahoos like you there. Also why many visitors comment on how nice Canadians are.

      • Raekon

        She lost it when she found out that he cheated on her. It’s quite understandable on one side but there are still Limits that shouldn’t be crossed and I think she overdid it.

    • Cilla

      To be fair, wasn’t Taryn mainly the instigator in the domestic dispute? Granted she probably didn’t cause too much damage, but this is the consequence.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    This doesn’t make any sense.

    • Malcolm James

      I believe if you get a felony you can’t leave the country

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        I never knew that. I try not to get arrested and all that!

      • Joe Mendiola

        Wrong. Different countries have different rules about different crimes. Some block you while others say if you paid your debt, you’re free to enter. Canada is stricter than other countries on foreigner entries.

  • Poor Gail is all I’m gonna say.

    • It

      She needs to go to WWE

      • Malcolm James

        Hell No

        • It

          Why?

      • KatyaMenelli

        LOL are you dumb?

        • It

          Better than the sinking ship she’s on

          • KatyaMenelli

            Gail isn’t going back there unless she gets a HOF or something. You lost your mind if you think she’ll go back.

          • It

            I didn’t say she will go, I said she needs to… learn how to read

          • Johnny

            Why would she do that though? Just so she can job to all the women on that roster that are less talented than her? Her husband is a multimillionaire. She can just relax and enjoy the rest of her life.

  • wysna

    It really is quite sad if this is true because she is a well rounded talent. She certainly ended up being a cut above her “Diva” contemporaries who were either one note or stale. If she’s interested in wrestling, I hope she finds a way to make a name for herself in the indies.

  • I just want to see Tiffany return to wwe

    • Dark Heel

      With Drew there? lol.

      • Wicked Emma

        Mickie is in WWE right now. Cena is also in WWE.

        • Shan

          Mickie didn’t attack Cena physically and then their relationship end in a divorce.

          • Wicked Emma

            If Mickie and Cena can be civil time each other.
            Taryn and Drew can be civil time each other.

          • Summer_Slay

            Legends only. skirt Tiffany isnt messing around.

  • Stef’

    Anyway TNA is such a mess nobody even needs an excuse to leave, it’s just ok.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    If that’s the case, TNA should have known better. That’s simple. If you have the ambition to do your PPV outside of the US, be aware in advance.

    One of your top female talent isn’t allowed to go to certain countries due to problems with justice, that’s just them not thinking in advance. Anticipation is supposed to be the basis when you are aiming to be successful but oh well…

    • Malcolm James

      Remember Bound for Glory was supposed to take place in Orlando Florida when Impact bring her in that’s what Jeff Jarrett wanted but anthem so the fans out cry so they decided to do it at Canada

      • Dark Heel

        Drunk Jeff Jarrett.

  • It

    TNA is a mess

  • Y’all can say what you want about Dixie (I’d probably be joining y’all asses), but she’d NEVER let Gail go out like this.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Exactly. She was a horrible business woman but she cared about her stars. Both Kurt and Jeff Hardy have credited her being a key factor in getting them sober.

    • Troy Smith

      Like what. Taryn is great but Gail can still win the title at the biggest show and retire as champion. Or she could have a great retirement match with someone else.

  • LoveEvaBella

    I wish WWE will hire her again. Poor Gail what a mess of retirement and so is GFW. It’s like they really have no direction in success they’re just fighting for survival.

    • Malcolm James

      Her retirement would have been worse in WWE
      Trish Stratus is the only female to have a good retirement

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Vickie and AJ also had good send off. A WM win (and one on Raw following WM) and then you have Vickie who was able to embarrass the boss and pay homage to the first man of her life, Eddie Guerrero.
        I would put McCool on the list too because while she lost, it was built and it was in a physical match.

        • Malcolm James

          AJ would not have a good retirement if WWE know she was going to retire
          So only 2 women Trish (wrester) and Vickie (non wrester ) had good retirement compare to 20+women who had disrespect retirement

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Disrespect… not necessarily. Just not relevant ones.

        • Joe Mendiola

          Would’ve been a better sendoff for Vickie if she had won the match by planting Steph in the pudding instead of after losing it. (Yes. it wasn’t “disgusting mystery slop”.)

      • LoveEvaBella

        But at least you end up at the number one wrestling company. WWE is known worldwide and is the only wrestling company recognized by the masses.

      • Joe Mendiola

        Leaving with the title was good? Umm…maybe for Trish but not for the rest of the division. Without a champ defending the belt, the rest of the ladies were still in Trish’s shadow even after she was gone. Amazing how a pair of D cups can make the same company who gave us the Montreal Screwjob turn 180 degrees. Is a Canadian leaving the company with a title wrong or not?

        • Steven5812

          ROFLOLOL
          AND they were fake.
          *Thinks of how Lita got dissed, hissed and dismissed @ Survivor Series ’06, and scowls*.
          I’m glad my boy John Hennigan told that walking blowup doll where to step off; must have been a hell of an ego deflater for her.

    • Dark Heel

      LOL Gail despises the McMahons as people. She’s very happy where she is.

  • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

    I believe she cancelled the american wrestling events becuase she’s recovering from a concussion.

    • Joe Mendiola

      That’s story line. If Terrell really had a concussion, she wouldn’t be in Las Vegas renewing her vows w/ her husband right now, as shown on her Twitter & Instagram pages.

  • StarmanJames

    Both parties should’ve known about the travel issue well before. Such a shame Gail’s retirement storyline has been screwed up. I think we were still going to get Taryn Vs Gail somehow.

    Ps wouldn’t it be awesome if this were a storyline and Taryn screws Gail out of the win?! Then we get their match?!

  • GEO

    How you gon get banned from Canada? None of these rumors making any sense tbh.

  • Such a shame she left everything like it was nothing, poor Gail retirement match will be so lame without a major rival like Terrell.

  • Nicola Byrne

    Why what happened between her and Drew?

    • Troy Smith

      They were married back when she was in WWE. She attacked him in a hotel and was arrested for DV.

      • Joseph

        Or they just didn’t want any bad press.

      • Steven5812

        Vince f’n McMahon again. >:(

      • Summer_Slay

        What a legend. Jesus gave her the power.

  • Joe Mendiola

    Canada often refuses entry to Americans for crimes taking place here. They have stricter laws there on many crimes. They have fewer misdemeanor level offenses & more felony level offenses. Felony level offenses, as defined in Canada, keep people from entering the country. For instance, most DUI’s in the US are misdemeanors but in Canada they are considered felony level due to the possibility of hurting or killing someone.

    FWIW Terrell could’ve gotten in to Canada, especially since it was for work, by filing for a Temporary Resident Permit. This can even be done at the border crossing under certain circumstances. Either Impact didn’t feel there was enough time to file the paperwork & get it approved (there’s always a chance Canada will reject the request) or Terrell chose not to pursue it. If that’s the case & her stint was to end after Kim’s retirement, she may have just been released early since there was nothing else for Terrell to do.

  • jeff zimmerman

    has wrestling really started to suck once again and forever more? what ever happened to the good ol days when NO ONE KNEW ANYTHING , but they knew wrestling was a “predeteriminded outcome…?”

  • Kiana Taylor

    Who ass she was beating in Canada to get banned??
