Even as TNA’s longest-running Knockouts Champion, Taryn Terrell remains the ultimate underdog.
From WWE Diva Search competitor to TNA referee to Knockouts Champ, Taryn’s journey is a bona fide Cinderella story. Far from having her opportunities handed to her, she’s earned them, developing ring skills and displaying gutsiness that few expected out of the all-American beauty.
In an exclusive interview with Diva Dirt’s Chris and Jake, Taryn talks about her journey to the Knockouts Title and what is perhaps her biggest challenge yet: a main event title defense against Awesome Kong on this Friday’s all-Knockouts edition of Impact Wrestling.
She hypes the rest of the show, which includes a number one contendership match that presents several enticing match-ups, should Taryn retain the title. It also brings the debut of two new Knockouts: indy wrestlers Jade and Marti Belle. Taryn shares with us her wishlist for future indy-to-TNA transitions.
All of that, plus talk on new motherhood, going viral with Will Ferrell, her post-wrestling plans and much more in the interview below.
