Knockouts PPV “No” List Adds Two More Names

On the heels of news that former TNA Knockouts Angelina Love, Kharma and Traci Brooks have turned down offers to appear on TNA’s all-Knockout Pay Per View, two more names have joined the list.

Over the weekend, former Knockouts Roxxi and Sarita revealed that they too will forgo their chance to appear on the Pay Per View.

Roxxi, now competing as Nikki Roxx, tweeted Diva Dirt in response to the news of Knockouts turning down TNA, saying, “There’s a bunch of us.” This implies that she, along with many others, have been contacted by the company but won’t be appearing on the PPV.

Sarita, real name Sarah Stock, replying to a fan’s question regarding the event, said, “It would have been fun but I’m doing my thing on the other side of the world.” She competed last month in a match presented by Diva Dirt.

According to Nikki’s tweet, it’s likely that more names will be added to the list in the week ahead.

The PPV, titled “One Night Only: TNA Knockout Knockdown”, will be taped on Sunday, March 17th.

    This is getting to the point where it’s starting to make tna look really bad:(

    • therightone

      Starting too?

  • ETR


    • Jillfan1

      amen preach it like it is

    • therightone

      Mickie, Gail have been treated like shit. The other are getting more than they deserve.

  • JD Sensations

    Another classic LOLTNA moment.

    • fragile

      and hey, the year isn’t over yet.

  • xX-Zoey-Sky-Xx

    its kinda funny there reaching out to former knockouts when if they wanted could go to OVW and bring up some to complete the card!!

    I bet they’ll start asking former divas who havent even been on TNA yet. Wouldn’t be surprised if they asked Michelle, Kelly & The Bella’s.

    • shameronstar

      No offense to tna but they would probably just laugh at the phone and then hang up!

    • perceval

      They’ll get enough former Knockouts and, if they’re in a pinch, OVW girls for the PPV. But, it’ll be KOs like Sojo Bolt.

      • redsandman99

        They might as well just do that now because it’s not looking good on the former KO front.

  • pumped up kicks

    I think this is very funny and sad at the same time. When you don’t treat your employees right, this is what happens. Hopefully Dixie and crew learn their lesson! Its not only the knockouts either…. Bobby Roode had to let them know his contract was about to expire! Seriously how unprofessional are tna?!

    • Jillfan1

      I know that is terrible in stead of focusing on the hogans and this stupid storyline for months and brooke which no one cares about focus on the employees they do everything for you ala Daffney and what? they get repaid crap

  • ChrisfromRushy

    Maybe TNA can ask Rain And CheerLeader Melissa back.

  • Superstar77

    Add Rain to that list. She told a fan on Twitter she will not be competing on that show.

  • Flitzy

    Considering how little the Destination X PPV did for the returning wrestlers, I don’t blame them.

    Also, considering how terrible TNA has made the Knockouts division lately….

  • fragile

    oh well, they say any publicity is good publicity.enjoy the next round of people saying no,tna management.

    i know that there’s probably new people behind the scenes at tna. than when the tna classics/originals wrestled there. but there’s no reason to think things will get better in the prichard era.

    also, if it tapes on the 17th do we have any idea what the matches are gonna be on the card ?? was this even planned at all ???

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    they kinda struck out with all the big former knockouts, Roxxi, Kharma, Angelina, Sarita, and Traci them are some big names that have said no,

    they are not very many former knockouts left that will make an impact like they all did

  • redsandman99

    So Sarita’s busy and good for her I say. As for Roxxi, she’s done several returns and none of them have actually panned out for her. Can’t say I blame her for turning them down.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    WOW now Rain aka Payton Banks, has said she wont be there LOL

    becoming very funny

    • perceval

      And #7 on the list, Winter.

      “@Sciacallo92: @katarinasinfamy Will you be a part of the Knockouts Tapings?” certainly not. :-)

  • k2evecrew

    We all knew sarita wasn’t coming , I wonder what happened backstage the only thing I could come up with is pay issues & the way some ppl got released (not being on tv for months like sarita). I could see Angelina from Jersey shore coming and being eliminated by velvet in the first round.

  • richies88

    i totally understand with roxxi as she got sacked couple minutes before she was due to face madison for the knockouts title

  • charovnica

    No other choice now than bring all the girls from OVW to save the day.Maybe Taryn will join in the in ring action as well.

    • Jillfan1

      so Gail, Mickie can job to her? >> the knockouts are becoming stale as hell we all know TNA can do much better the days of Kong, Kim,Love,odb roxxi, taylor wilde and etc too bad it didn’t last long swear prichard is like TNA’S version of wwe Johnny ace; when he was there(wwe) he was like that towards the women rwally we don’t want to take it back 10 years bring the blossoms in not Taryn

      • charovnica

        Dude…no need to say things we all know.I said “maybe” Taryn will join and it’s very likely since she has beef with Gail.

  • Ryan

    Haha lol @ TNA
    But still show must go on!! Love u Roxxi Sarah Traci Kong and many more l, but not gonna mope about it, the current girls maybe add a few new ones and we got a show! BAM!!

  • Melissa K Killer 2010

    I guess that car wash with the Knockout was a bad idea right TNA!!!

    • redsandman99

      That car wash segment they did when Karen was reigning her terror over the girls? I don’t think that has anything to do with why all the former women are saying no.

      • Ryan

        Ya plus it was freakin freezing out in the garage too haha and cold water all got nippy and catty and a knockouts fight broke out
        Instead of sexy car wash with smiles they got a sexy wet cold knockouts fight that pissed Karen Angle lol..
        Or like the Thong thunder Thursday!!
        Brooke and many others wore guy shirts and more clothing than they usually wear haha

      • Melissa K Killer 2010

        I do crap like this make them not want to come back!
        what a dumb idea I know I tune in for wrestling not some dumb B.S.!

        • redsandman99

          It was good for demonstrating how evil and domineering Karen was. It advanced a storyline whether it was liked or not. The way though a lot of these knockouts left the company probably has more to do with why they don’t want to come back.

        • redsandman99

          Or of course, some of them could be like Sarita and have other bookings already scheduled.

  • aldo

    Oww Sarita :( But what about the girls in the Indies, that haven’t asked them yet right? And I mean girls that haven’t been neither in TNA nor in WWE.

    • aldo

      …, they* haven’t…

  • tnatiffany

    i can understand the girls turning them down after all tna never used them correctly when they were there.and keeps them off tv then lets them go without warning. but after last nights ppv i do see a Taryn Terrell and Gail Kim match in the works

  • Jillfan1

    SEE it bites people straight in the ass when your treated your actual talented women badly Love,Kong,Brooks,Laveaux, and now Stock; now where is Jame? Rayne TNA needs to show women some respect I loved when Scott D’Amore was in charge you may bash me but one good thing Russo did at times was the gimmick matches none of this Terrel, Gail (which sucks becaenow Gail will job) and cher aidding me they won’t leave the mark thhe previous ladies did and Sarita >Brooke she should have feuded with Gail, Kim wanted to work with her WTF man

    • Jillfan1

      James, Gail kim will job ( just like she did to Brooke)

  • richies88

    Did Madison get sacked?

    • fragile

      she’s still listed on current tna roster.


    Dammit =( I hope we can see Winter and Rosita and i wish one of the five are liying,

  • theshadowranger

    Why am I not surprised. TNA plans an all women’s PPV and the wrestling fans choose to focus only on who won’t be there. Just looking at all the women under contract who will be there. Mickie,Tara, Brooke Tess,Madi,velvet,gail,ODB, The blossoms and Taelar will probably be there as well. These NO’s are no big deal. TNA has more than enough women to put on a great show.

  • neonlights21x

    this list is just growing and growing haha…. at this point you just gotta laugh. I mean at this rate they will have to ask rosie lotta love haha……and she would probably turn them down as well.

  • wl75

    You could get a damn good tournament out of the ones who said no. The ones who will probably be in there should be fine though..
