Mike Killam

TNA Knockout Taryn Terrell spoke with Zoo Today this week to promote the company's 2014 UK Tour, kicking off next January. Many may not know this about the 27-year-old former Diva and Playboy model, but Taryn, outside of her career as a model and professional wrestler, works as a female stunt double and has appeared in some major feature films. This year alone, she has worked stunts for Now You See Me, Empire State, and Seth Rogan's This is the End. 

Taryn spoke on what makes the Knockouts stand out as the premiere division in women's wrestling, stating "Every single one of the Knockouts works their butt off! Everybody is willing to give all, so when nobody holds back it creates magic. That’s the cool thing about TNA. The girls are beautiful but we are all freakin' tough."

Breaking into professional wrestling from the modelling world wasn't easy for Taryn. "It has been real tough for me. I think when a female comes in from the modelling world a lot automatically think you are just a model and not a wrestler. I want to give people a good reason for getting behind me, my passion is wrestling."
