Former TNA Knockout Madison Rayne, who was released by the company a few weeks ago, has posted a new blog talking about her TNA departure and the backlash from fans afterwards due to the fact she is currently pregnant with her first child. Here is an excerpt from the blog:

Mickie James doesn’t waver — at first. If she could perform a duet with any country music singer, it would have to be Tim McGraw.
No, wait, she’d have to consider Reba McEntire.
Then again, joining Kid Rock for one of his country-hybrid grooves would be unforgettable, too.
The championship was last held by ODB and Eric Young, who who held the titles from February 28, 2012 – June 20, 2013. Knockouts General Manager Brooke Hogan vacated the titles. The titles have also been removed from the TNA website.
TNA Knockout Taeler Hendrix returned to The Greg DeMarco Show to discuss her career since becoming an official TNA contracted talent, the impact of Trish Stratus on today’s female wrestlers, and her controversial love story with Heidi Lovelace in OVW.
On waiting to be called up to the main roster for TNA Impact Wrestling:
“If I knew what it was, I’d be doing it. … I am doing everything I possibly can—I feel like I am that hidden gem that’s just waiting to be found. … It’s been extremely difficult [being patient] … If Gut Check was the stepping stone to reach the rest of your dreams. … There’s a certain element of risk…but if you if you’re not willing to go big you might as well go home. … It’s been tough but as long as I keep a positive outlook on it, it doesn’t seem as bad.”

Okay so I must admit that I have hoped for a while now that TNA would take the necessary steps to more or less fill the void of WCW and the void of Nitro. But I’ve come to the realization that the people running TNA simply don’t know what it takes to be a force in the Wrestling industry (WWE knew but has forgotten about 12 years ago). TNA much like WWE doesn’t know how to move on from past methods that worked and current methods that have not worked. What wrestling needs is a culture change, much like the one that occurred in 1996. And NO I don’t mean Hogan turning heel and forming the nWo. The culture change began earlier in the year when ECW really got heated up with talents like Raven, Tommy Dreamer, and Shane Douglas through various angles.
Guess who’s back? Back again? It’s WWW of course! After being absent last week, the Women’s Wrestling Write-Up is back. After being at Leeds Festival last week watching bands such as Foo Fighters and Paramore, I certainly saw my fair share of superstars, and this week follows on from that trend as we have some awesome spectacles inside the ring! I’m sure you will all implode with excitement when I tell you that we have 2 Natalya matches this week, on RAW and Smackdown, and there is also some action on IMPACT. Sadly, there were no NXT or Superstars bouts but we do have appearances from significant segments featuring Vickie Guerrero, AJ and Aksana to beef this baby up. With no more introduction needed, let’s jump into this week’s Opening Contest.
Former five-time TNA Knockouts Champion Angel Williams (Angelina Love) was the featured guest on the return of the award-winning Monday Night Mayhem. You can now feel The Mayhem every week only on the WrestleView Radio Network.
Angel joined The Big Mosh & “The Chairman of the Board” Todd Vincent for her first (and only) post-TNA interview, a Monday Night Mayhem worldwide exclusive interview, which is now available for download on the WrestleView Radio Network:

Bonjourno everyone and no, this is not an attempt at an Antonio Cesaro impression, I just thought I’d channel the language of love as you will love everything that we have coming up on this week’s Women’s Wrestling Write-Up. If you love Twitter, follow moi (ooh la la, remind me never to say that again) at @Jack5326 and now I’ve ran out of love puns as I’m that uncreative, we’ll get on with things!
