Former TNA Knockout Madison Rayne opened up about her release from TNA Wrestling in her first personal blog entry. Here is an excerpt from the blog. "As everyone is probably well aware by now, I was released by TNA. As with any breaking news in the wrestling business, this has come with a number of questions/assumptions as to why I was released. There’s no top secret, exciting story to go along folks. I am inactive right now. I am not able to travel and perform, meet the fans and sell tickets. Dixie Carter kept me under contract for the majority of my pregnancy and provided me and my family an income for doing very little. I was not “fired” because I got pregnant. Keep in mind, that happened months ago LoL! So with that said, I am thankful beyond words and humbled by every experience I was given because of TNA. Am I hanging up my boots now because I have chosen to be a mom? I don’t think I am. I think I still have quite a bit left to give. Would I go back to TNA if the opportunity presented itself? Of course. In the meantime, however, I’m starting a new chapter in my life and I am so excited to share pieces of this journey with you guys. I have received many, many questions over the past few months about baby girl so I’d like to quickly answer a few of those: Yes, we have decided on a name. No, I won’t be plastering it all over the internet… I’m sure somehow, somewhere that will come out anyway lol. We ARE having a little girl, her daddy wants her in jiu jitsu as soon as possible and mommy wants her in pageants so I guess the apple won’t be falling far from the tree in this case! And as far as our due date… we’ve got less than 2 months that’s sufficient enough right?" You can check out the rest of her blog entry here.
