TNA’s Winter Speaks On WWE Departure, Working With TNA

Matt Boone


The following are interview highlights with TNA Knockout Winter:

What she learned to appreciate the most after her WWE departure and why she believes that TNA is the place where she’s “supposed to be”: “I learned to enjoy myself at work. I think obviously things happen for a reason, and sometimes you’re at a place of work that doesn’t suit you. I definitely think Impact Wrestling is the place where I am supposed to be. I had my eye on this company for a while, even before I got here. I was so happy to get the opportunity to work here. For me, it’s about coming to work, enjoying working again, and feeling fulfilled as an artist again and a wrestler too.”

Why she has been enjoying her current program with Angelina Love: “I was always a big fan of The Beautiful People. I always thought Angelina did a great job, so to be involved with her, as she is one of the top girls on Impact, is great for me. I am really enjoying it.”

How focused she is on winning the TNA Knockouts Championship, why winning the gold would be “a dream come true,” and if winning the Knockouts Title would prove her critics wrong: “I would love to be Knockouts Champion. That would definitely be a dream come true. I think in terms of proving the doubters wrong, I think people who know my work or know me know that I wasn’t necessarily given the opportunities that I may have done something with if I would have had it. I don’t feel that getting the Knockouts Championship would be like a ‘I’m gonna stick it to you’ thing. It would be an honor in itself to me.”

Getting the opportunity to be a part of TNA’s forthcoming BaseBrawl in Buffalo, NY and why this event will be a historical night for her career: “I haven’t done an event like this before, and I’ve been hearing about it a little bit. I’m looking forward to it. The whole experience: It’s going to be a meet and greet, there’s going to be fireworks. I don’t really know much about baseball, so maybe I’ll get a bit of an education in that area too.”
