TNA: Knockout released by company

It’s safe to say that the former manager of Robert Roode, Ms. Payton Banks, is through with TNA. The TNA website removed her profile from the roster section yesterday. She was on a pay-per-appearance deal with the company and after her storyline with Roode concluded, apparently they didn’t need her services anymore. You can still catch Banks in the SHIMMER promotion as she often appears on their shows. TNA also removed the profile of Elix Skipper, who has been used sparingly over the past year. The TNA site added actual profile pages on Frank Trigg, Hector Guerrero, Mike Tenay, Don West, Jeremy Borash and Willie Urbina. Also, Crystal Louthan is still listed in the roster section, so she’s still with the company, at least at this moment.
