TNA Knockout Rosita, who lost her father during the 9/11 attacks in New York, will be featured on an NBC special called “Children of 9/11” next Monday.
The special will air at 10pm ET going head-to-head with the last hour of WWE’s Raw on USA.
Rosita, real name Thea Trinidad, lost her father in the attacks when she was just 10 years old. She told The Wrestler magazine that she wanted to become a wrestler after being around her father who was an amateur wrestler.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Rosita’s TNA tryout, which took place in January, was filmed for the special.
September 11th marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
Thoughts: I can’t wait to see Rosita’s story on this special. I can’t imagine losing your father at such a young age in such a tragic way. I’m sure the coming two weeks will be very emotional for her. You’re in our thoughts, Rosita.
