Rosita Reveals Her Personal 9/11 Tragedy, Who Helped Her Get Foot in the Door at TNA

One half of the Knockouts Tag Team Champions, Rosita, is featured in the latest issue of The Wrestler magazine in a piece called ‘Introducing Rosita’ which reveals some interesting facts.

The 20-year-old, real name Thea Trinidad, reveals that her father, an amateur wrestler himself, died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York when she was just 10. Rosita says being around her father made her want to become a wrestler herself.
