Priscilla Zuniga, known as Diamante in Impact Wrestling, seems to no longer be with the company. This week on the Impact Wrestling website, a number of talent were moved to the alumni section including Diamante. Other names moved were Caleb Conley, Austin Aries, Bhupinder Singh, Gursinder Singh and Vikas Kumar. It is unclear if she was released or her contract just ran out. We have reached out to Zuniga to confirm the departure but the move to the alumni section seems pretty telling.
She was signed to a contract in March 2017 as part of The Latin American Xchange stable. The group debuted on Impact March 23rd, while Diamante made her singles debut on April 6th. She participated in a gauntlet match to decide who would become the number one contender for the Knockout Division Championship but was defeated by Brandi Rhodes.
Unfortunately, just three months after her debut, she suffered a torn ACL which resulted in surgery. Sadly, because of this injury, she never returned to Impact television.
Zuniga worked the independent circuit for nine years before joining Impact, under the moniker of Angel Rose. She worked primarily in the Florida independent scene. During her independent career she was involved in inter-gender wrestling matches which has been a hot topic since the Royal Rumble. She is a four-time women’s champion at Independent Championship Wrestling in Miami, Florida as well as the inaugural holder of their now-inactive Hard Knocks Championship. She is the most recent ICW Champion, though the title has been inactive since her reign ended in early 2018.
She wrestled for such promotions as ICW, Shine and RONIN Pro Wrestling. Zuniga also worked at a NXT live event where she faced the current SmackDown Women’s Champion, Asuka.
