Taryn Terrell is “badass” personified.
The 29-year-old New Orleans native has been knocked out by Will Ferrell, set on fire, graced the pages of Playboy and Maxim, ruled ECW as general manager, fallen off ladders, crashed through tables and for the last 216 days she has called herself the reigning, defending TNA Knockouts Champion.
This Friday night Taryn looks to break down one more barrier – defending her title in the main event of Impact Wrestling.
Not that many indeed. Back in 2004, WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Lita – two women Taryn lists as her biggest inspirations in wrestling – had the opportunity to headline Monday Night Raw; a match and a moment fans are still talking about over a decade later.
Friday’s episode of Impact Wrestling is unique. They’re calling it “TKO: A Night of Knockouts”, and while at least one match on the card will be worked by men, TNA is going all-out this week to celebrate what they consider to be a superior brand of women’s wrestling.
