Possible TNA Departure

It looks like original TNA Knockout Traci Brooks has once again parted ways with the company as her profile has been removed from the company’s official website.

Brooks returned to the company after a two year hiatus last year, aiding Velvet Sky in her feud with ODB and Jackie. She is perhaps best known in this past run, however, for her role as former Knockouts Vice President Karen Jarrett‘s assistant. During her time as Karen’s assistant, Traci took on Gail Kim in what was supposed to be a squash match at the VP’s request, however, Traci instead took the fight to Kim in a highly memorable match.

After Jarrett’s departure in December, Traci began being used sparsely, last appearing on Impact Wrestling in January.

Traci was previously with the company from 2003 through late 2009. She is recognized as the first TNA Knockout.

    She’s boring to me so as long as Kazarian stays I’m cool with it.

  • Mikas

    Well, she wasnt really used on the show anyway. Like TNA said, they are going to focus more on the people that are in active storylines.

  • WWFoverWWE

    Again? At this point, Traci must me saying to management “see you all next year” or something.

  • Poison_Ivory

    I wish she’d stayed. Even if not as a wrestler, but at least as an assistant to whomever is the lead character there. I hope she stays in the business

  • mahsitti

    She wasn’t the first TNA Knockout. There were a ton of women on the first PPV’s and the first prominent woman was Trinity. Traci came in quite a while into TNA’s existence.

    I never really cared for her and she’s never really used consistently anyway, so I’m not surprised at this at all.

  • Brandz785

    So now there’s only 11 Knockouts left, please bring more girls from the Indies, TNA ! I’m tired of ex-divas taking up the whole roster but I’ll make an exception to Melina. And Indie girls have so much more potential and we need brand new faces in the division.

    • fragile

      it doesn’t seem like tna is bringing *anyone* in. :(

      at this rate we won’t even get one new knockout a year.they brought in toxxin/ who was there for like a month or so something.aside from that when and who was the last new knockout they signed ????

  • lbthewrestlingnerd

    I honestly don’t want any indy female wrestlers to go to TNA.

    They would be sexualized, they would be told to do slutty things (photoshoots, stories) they would be called knockouts, they would be shoved to the side in favor of Divas. No thanks.

    • TheRealSmoothG

      Are we not watching the same program? Many girls on the indies do photo shoots as it is. It’s apart of wrestling, men do it as well and don’t think many females don’t like to look at them. How many KO Titles has Angel Williams won, Gail Kim (don’t tell me she’s not a wrestler), ODM, Mickie James, Winter, etc, etc. The women there get the chance to wrestle. This isn’t the WWE. While they don’t do many things correct (like the KO’s should have their own show) don’t treat them as if they book women’s wrestling like the WWE.

    • Kessuki

      i dont know if your a wwe fan but do u not think indy women would also be sexualised in wwe’s photoshoots too? because looking sexy sells and it does not have to affect the talent’s wrestling.

  • KillerKing

    I don’t care for her all that much, but it doesn’t feel right that they just released her right that. She should’ve had a better ending considering how long she’s been there.

  • TheRealSmoothG

    Used well for awhile then nothing. Doesn’t make much sense. I do love how after her first release there were so many rumors about nobody getting along with her and this time not a word. Got to love politics and rumors.

  • Kessuki

    aww that sucks but since she has been offscreen since january – i cant be too disappointed that she’s been released or asked to be released. tbh i didnt like her in the role she was as karen’s lackey and would have preferred her in the frame for the title. i do feel this isnt the last we have seen of her in tna.

    in relation i would love them to bring in another KO to replace her from the indies or they could possibly offer alissa flash a contract as i would love to see her return.

  • HollyRobinsonWWE

    I don’t really want them to bring anyone new in. They’re really only using 4/11 regularly so there’s a few too many as it is.

    What I’d like to see is Gail losing the title to Velvet and then for something completely different in the title scene a long Velvet vs. Angelina feud. The promos and videos for this would be flat out awesome. Have Mickie back up Velvet and Winter back up Angelina so we can integrate more women into the program.

    I’d put Gail/Madison into a feud with ODB/EY to keep them on TV as well. Maybe do more with Mexican America, even just have them job more often so at least Sarita/Rosita remain in sight every now and then. Maybe have Brooke with or without Tara valet for someone. At least attempt to use all the women they have before bringing in anyone else.
