Haskins had not appeared for the promotion since a January 2012 iMPACT! Wrestling taping in his home country where he lost to Austin Aries in an X Division Championship Match. During the match, Haskins suffered a concussion and a neck injury, rendering him inactive for several months.
Winter's official fansite, K-Waters.net, first announced last week that she had parted ways with the company. The website stated, "Just wanted to make an update and let everyone know Kat’s contract with TNA is officially up! Which means she is free to do DVDs, bookings, iPPVs, and whatever else! If interested please send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org."
