Transcript: Cookie Talks About TNA Departure

Source: Diva Dirt

Earlier Joe posted audio of former TNA Knockout Cookie (Becky Bayless) regarding her departure from TNA Wrestling. Diva Dirt has posted a brief transcript of that segment of the interview:

“At first it took me off guard. I had had talks with the office, obviously, because I was aware that my contract was coming up and I was under the impression that I would be signing a new contract. I actually found out a few days after my contract expired, so I was a little taken off guard.

But in the 48 hours following, I reached out to some friends of mine, a lot of friends reached out to me and it really opened my eyes that it’s not a loss as much as it is closing one chapter and opening a whole new one.

I’ve just been exploring all kinds of other opportunities that have been popping up. A few of them are very exciting. As you well know in wrestling, nothing’s for sure until you walk through the curtain so till then everything’s just talk but I definitely have a lot that I’m excited about and working on right now. It’s also been very nice the numbers of people that have reached out to me.”

    I’ll miss Cookie. Aside from being ridiculously gorgeous, she did a great job at making fans love to hate her. She’s very much a modern day Sherri Martel in that regard, I think.

    I don’t understand releasing her, just as I don’t understand releasing Jay Lethal, or Amazing Red. But you don’t know I don’t work at TNA and I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes.

    I hope she finds something that suits her talents well.

    I guess this is why we’ve been seeing Robbie E. and Cookie argue a lot on television–giving an explanation for her absence. I wonder if she knew that’s why she was doing it.

    I think somewhere later in the interview she comments that she may be brought back to run an angle and that you never say never in professional wrestling. You never know – maybe she’ll wind up being Amazing Red’s valet in some weird All Wheels Wrestling type of gimmick. ;-)
