Former WWE Tough Enough contestant assaulted in TNA
It looks like locker room rough-ups are becoming a trend in TNA. Just a couple of weeks after former WWE Diva Awesome Kong was fired for assaulting Matt Hardy’s wife, Reby Sky in the locker room, reports have emerged of another disturbingly similar incident.
Gabi Castrovinci, known to wrestling fans as TNA Knockout Raquel, was recently thrown out of the locker room at a recent taping of Impact Wrestling. Castrovinci was a former contestant on the WWE reality show Tough Enough.
About a month away from her first match in TNA, Raquel has already been involved in another physical altercation. According to dailywrestlingnews.com, Raquel was “savagely attacked” by her opponent, Regina, at an indy show in Miami. TMZ reported it earlier this month.
The altercation left Raquel quite busted up, in her own words,”I cracked my tooth and I had to get a root canal and a crown on my tooth … and I have a little hairline fracture on my jaw.” Gabi finished in tenth place on Tough Enough and according to Dave Meltzer, was on the verge of receiving a developmental contract with the WWE when a “troubling” discovery about her past was made. Needless to say, this lead to the WWE deciding otherwise.
