Last week Squared Circle Sirens broke the news that Impact Wrestling Knockout Laurel Van Ness has requested her release.
A problem with Van Ness asking for her release is that she will be winning the Knockouts Championship on the episode of Impact Wrestling that airs this Thursday. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Van Ness requested her release on the same night that she won the title at the recent set of TV tapings.
The former WWE Tough Enough competitor, who is currently dating Zack Ryder, probably should have informed management about her desire to leave prior to being crowned the new Knockouts Champion.
It remains to be seen how Impact handles her departure – whether she’s stripped of the gold or if she drops the title at the next set of tapings before being granted her release.
