Former TNA Knockout, Sojo Bolt has spoken for the first time on her release from the company on her MySpace page. Bolt — real name Josie Bynum — thanked several members of the TNA family including her fellow Knockouts for her time there. Read below:
I wanted to wait a while before addressing my departure from TNA for a few reasons but mostly because I have been so busy spending time with my loved ones. So let me start by saying thank you….
Thank you to Terry Taylor, Dutch Mantell, Jeff Jarret, and Savio Vega for giving me such a great opportunity.
Thank you to all of the Knockouts! It was an honor to be able to stand toe to toe with you all and I will never forget the fun we had in and out of the ring!
Thank you to Eddie Sharky, Eric Priest, Al Snow, and Rip Rogers for giving me the tools to be the kind of wrestler that can face any competitor.
Thank you to Danny Davis for believing in my abilities and giving me the ball to run with.
Thank you to my friends for being there in good times and bad, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health…divorce is not an option, so live with it!
Thank you to my boo for his endless love and support!
Thank you to my family for inspiring me to be more than my circumstances.
Thank you to my mother for raising me to be the kind of woman who excepts no less than 100%. Everything I am is because my mother instilled in me a hard work ethic and the notion I can be anything I want but not to expect anyone to hand it to me. Anything worth doing or having is worth working for and for that I love my momma!
Last but not least, thank you to my fans. The ones who were there in the begining in Minnesota to the ones who first saw me on TNA. Thank you for sharing my journey and passion but my journey isn’t over. My departure from TNA wasn’t negative in anyway so please continue to watch and support the Knockouts and the rest of the TNA roster.
As reported, Bolt was released by the company last month as they didn’t have anything for her and couldn’t continue to keep her under contract. TNA have told Sojo that they may bring her back from time-to-time on a pay per appearance basis.
