TNA Knockout Confirms Release

Following the departure of Sarita from TNA last month, rumors began to surface that her former tag team partner Rosita was also leaving the company.

Neither Rosita nor TNA confirmed the news at the time, but yesterday Rosita made it official on Twitter. She tweeted:

Rosita, real name Thea Trinidad, went on to clarify that she is not retiring from wrestling.

Where do you want to see Rosita go from here? Tell us in the comments!

    Personally i dont think she was ready for TV, she was way too green. But at least she gained some experience in TNA from working with Gail Kim, Sarita etc.
    And since she is from the NorthEast we will probably continue to see her in the usual places like WSU, BLOW, NEW, FWE, NWS etc.

    • Getdownwithachola

      BLOW is entertaining despite the name.

  • xLitaFan4Everx

    Aww, this is such a shame. Another great talent gone. :(
    Good luck Thea in whatever you do next. :)
    Aww, though. I thought TNA could have done so much more with her. I kinda wish they didn’t focus on Velvet Sky (even though I like her) and the ex-WWE Divas all the time and switch it around a little bit. Oh well, at least Thea seems happy with the decision and is grateful for the opportunity. :)

    I follow her on twitter and Instagram… She has been hanging with Josh Matthews, began using tout, and it appears she asked for her release… It may be a long shot, but I think she and Josh are vying to get her into the WWE. Which I would love, she’s main roster ready, considering TNA and WWE wrestling styles are the same.

    • bjorn448

      Well I would love it if that will happen.

      • k2evecrew

        Yessss im pretty sure she has a good shot shes defiantly has the look. i can see her & rosa becoming the Hispanic version of lay cool .

        • Nostalgia

          Yess! Maybe Natalya is having a match with Rosa, rosa distracts the ref and Rosita runs from the back attacking Natalya

    • therightone

      WWE already has a tiny Puerto Rican girl they don’t use.

  • jonboi

    Great TNA give velvet an iron clad contract and KO title. Then gets rid of the great talent like rosita sarita winter jackie ect

    • Rhawk

      TNA – Tits N Asses. ;-)

      • jonboi

        Lol defo got plenty of tits N asses there and that’s the guys ;-)

      • therightone

        I think the Aces & Eights guys have the biggest tits on the roster.

    • Cyndi

      well to play devil’s advocate Talia or Velvet or whatever has been then longer then Winter Sarita and Rosita i would love to see Jacqueline but why should Velvet lose a spot cause you want some else there and to be honest no matter if you consider Velvet limited i think TNA considers her more experienced then Rosita this is coming from a non confrontation place a little point counter point :)

    • Getdownwithachola

      Sure the other people you names are such a great talent but Rosita is not really that good she is just the same as Velvet if not less talented.

      • 09DHK

        A part of me doesn’t think that’s a fair comparison since Velvet’s been wrestling for TEN YEARS and she still looks as if she’s wrestling in her first match ALL THE TIME. Sure, compared to the average Knockout, Rosita wasn’t the best, but she’s rather young, and if she had even half the experience Velvet has, she’d be light-years ahead of Velvet.

  • Rhawk

    Aw sad face. While I knew she was definetly too green for main TV, I still loved Rosita/Thea regardless as she had a nice look and a story to make people connect with her more. Hopefully a few years down the road, or even sooner rather than later even, we can see her being picked up by WWE since, again, she has come experience, a nice look and a heart-touching story for people to connect with her more. Plus she’s what, 21/22? She has plenty of time to make it big if she wanted to.

  • JillianHallTNA

    Thank you Rosita! You will be missed on TNA! :(

  • art

    Stupid of tna

  • Ace Of Base

    Poor Rosita, ill miss her. She was so tiny, but such character. :-)

  • k2evecrew

    I hope she makes it big. I remember when I first seen her I was like omg she’s tiny like me then I googled her info & found out we were the same height. I don’t understand tna she was hot & could wrestle why didn’t she ever hold the knockouts championship?


    My faves are gone,Winter,Sarita and Rosita =(


    Eh. Come to WWE

  • theprincedann

    Sarita going was bad.

    But Rosita? Mehh.
    Won’t miss her. She wasn’t anything special.

    I’d rather she leaves, to create a spot for someone interesting.
    Jillian Hall maybe? Reby Sky.. LuFitso.

    Anyone would be an improvement.

    • Getdownwithachola

      Jillian Hall is not that special in fact she is the most overrated diva after Trish be the DD community.

    • 09DHK

      As much as I think Jillian would make a good Knockout, I feel like there would just be an overload of ex-WWE divas; especially since Madison Rayne is technically the only Knockout left without any affiliation to WWE. I feel like hiring Reby Sky would be pointless since she’s essentially an older Rosita, and TNA seems to be gradually gearing more toward looks than actual skill, so I don’t think LuFitso would fit in as a modern day Knockout.

      • theprincedann

        That is why I want LuFitso.

        Because the division functions better under diversity rules. When every knockout is different, and has a separate character, its more entertaining.

        And technically yes- about Madison being the only one not affiliated with WWE. But even though Velvet and ODB were, in a minor way, TNA made them stars. If they weren’t in TNA, you wouldn’t recognise them.

        And Jillian is a great wrestler, one of, if not the best female mic worker WWE ever had, IMO. She can make other girls look amazing.

        And Melina too, I don’t understand why she hasn’t appeared yet!

  • Getdownwithachola

    I’m surprised by her release due to how much TNA love to push underdogs. Regardless I don’t really think much of her I would love to see her in NXT or SHIMMER mixing it up with the girls down there.

  • 09DHK

    I’d like to see her go to SHIMMER or even Mexico and get a bit more polished in the ring just to have some more experience under her belt. Random segue, Diva Dirt NEEDS to get an interview with Sarita. The fact that TNA was dumb enough to let her go hit the division HARD.

  • Matty

    Shame, I really liked Thea.
    So much character, personally – I would love to see her get an opportunity in WWE, I could see her putting on some great matches with Layla.

  • jim462

    Sarita/Sarah Stock one of the best lady wreslers in the business gone from TNA those idiots at TNA are crazy they never pushed her or gave her a decent chance to show how great she is in the rin or on the mic cutting promos.
    Well Thank God for CMLL Lucha Lbre where she can wrestle as the very popular Dark Angel and showcase her wrestling skills I love watching her onm Galavision
