Ahead of Impact Wrestling’s big live Destination America debut this Wednesday, TNA has confirmed the re-signing of one Knockout and the departure of another.
Yesterday, TNA Executive VP John “Big” Gaburick tweeted several TNA re-signing announcements, the only Knockout being Madison Rayne:

Meanwhile, Brittany’s TNA departure has been confirmed. She has been moved to ImpactWrestling.com’s alumni section and her WrestlingKnockouts.com profile has been removed from the site. This follows last month’s rumors of her departure from the company, which an appearance at SHINE 23 seemed to corroborate.

Who is going to @IMPACTWRESTLING tapings in NYC Jan 7-9?!? Can’t wait to get back and slap some chicks around ????
Gail Kim‘s re-signing hasn’t been announced, but she has debunked a report stating that she’s working on an per-appearance basis:
@WrestlingInc lol. Wrong.

Christy Hemme, meanwhile, is preparing to give birth any day now, so her return to TNA will take some time:
