What’s the story?

Impact has announced the removal of former Knockouts Champion Taryn Terrell from the Knockouts Championship matchup at Bound For Glory 2017.

Knockouts Champion Sienna got wind of Taryn’s ouster, and responded with the following tweet:

In case you didn’t know…

Taryn Terrell recently returned to Impact, after a relatively long hiatus from the sport of professional wrestling.

The 31-year-old former Dollhouse connoisseur launched several attacks on Gail Kim since returning, and was scheduled to compete in a Fatal 4-Way match for the Knockouts Championship against Sienna, Allie and Gail Kim at the Bound For Glory PPV this November.

The heart of the matter

Taryn Terrell’s professional wrestling comeback reportedly served to garner Impact considerably positive feedback for the same, given the former WWE Diva’s considerable popularity amongst fans, with videos of her return amassing decent views and assisting the struggling company in its struggle for relevancy.

Considering that, Terrell’s removal from one of Impact’s biggest annual shows, Bound For Glory, has left both fans and experts rather baffled, with most asserting her alleged ‘concussion’ to be a part of the show’s storylines.

Apparently, Impact has taken Terrell off the card, owing to her having sustained a concussion, after being slapped by Gail Kim. Nevertheless, reigning Knockouts Champion, Sienna, made light of her foe’s plight, jesting about having beaten Taryn well before they stepped into the ring. 

What’s next?

Impact has promised to reveal more details regarding Taryn Terrell’s alleged concussion and health status tomorrow. Sportskeeda will keep you updated on the same.

The matchup for the Impact Knockouts Championship will now be contested as a Triple Threat showdown between Sienna, Allie and Gail Kim.

Author’s take

Taryn Terrell is one of the most charismatic performers in the sport today, and despite her wrestling skills being criticised by fans time and again, the ‘Hot Mess’ has always been lauded for her sniper-like promos.

Here’s hoping Taryn’s concussion turns out to be part of the storyline, and not a legitimate one. And if the latter does prove to be true, let’s hope the former champ makes a quick and speedy recovery.
