Impact Wrestling has released Tara. We thank Tara for all her contributions and wish her the best of success in the future.

I’m not completely surprised by this one. With all of the cost-cutting moves they made, and the fact that she hasn’t been on TV for months, it just seems fitting for them to split ways.
Gail Kim and Taryn are being given a lot more of the spotlight, while the title race continues to be heated between Mickie James and Velvet Sky. Plus, you’ve got ODB also involved in all of those matches. Letting go of a quality veteren is never easy and will be criticized by just about everyone. But, at the end of the day, you’ve got to start preparing for the future.
We like Tara a lot and will discuss the entire situation tonight on FTWLive.com at 8pm ET.
