Madison Rayne Updates Pregnancy, Speaks on Being Released from TNA & More

Mike Killam

Former TNA Knockout Madison Rayne has started her own blog, and in her first entry last week she gives a big update on her pregnancy, speaks on getting released from TNA recently and more. 

"As everyone is probably well aware by now, I was released by TNA. As with any breaking news in the wrestling business, this has come with a number of questions/assumptions as to why I was released. There’s no top secret, exciting story to go along folks. I am inactive right now. I am not able to travel and perform, meet the fans and sell tickets. Dixie Carter kept me under contract for the majority of my pregnancy and provided me and my family an income for doing very little. I was not “fired” because I got pregnant."

Madison, real name Ashley Cabot, and her husband Jesse are expecting the birth of their first child some time in the next two months. However, the former Knockouts champion doesn't think she's finished with wrestling. 

"Am I hanging up my boots now because I have chosen to be a mom? I don’t think I am. I think I still have quite a bit left to give. Would I go back to TNA if the opportunity presented itself? Of course. In the meantime, however, I’m starting a new chapter in my life and I am so excited to share pieces of this journey with you guys."

"I have received many, many questions over the past few months about baby girl so I’d like to quickly answer a few of those: Yes, we have decided on a name. No, I won’t be plastering it all over the internet … We ARE having a little girl … And as far as our due date, we’ve got less than 2 months."
