Backstage Updates: 2 TNA Knockouts Gone

-- While details have yet to be disclosed, Alissa Flash is gone from TNA Wrestling as we EXCLUSIVELY broke here on the website last night. Flash, whose real name is Melissa Anderson, had been with the company since January 2008 when she began working under a hood as Raisha Saeed, Awesome Kong's mouthpiece. The Saeed character was written out last fall as Anderson began regularly appearing as Flash, where she had matches with the likes Sarita and Hamada. She hadn't appeared on television since December and was not used at this week's slate of television tapings. Word of Anderson's departure from the company first began circulating yesterday after our report that was posted here. She later confirmed our report via her Twitter account ( Her bio has since been removed from the TNA website.

-- As reported earlier, Awesome Kong has given notice to TNA with the multi-time champion herself confirming said reports during a live video stream yesterday afternoon. It should be noted that her decision to hand in her notice may not necessarily be as a result of her heated encounter with Bubba the Love Sponge earlier this week, but rather, the company's upcoming tour of Europe. "I told TNA that I would think about it," Kong said during a live video stream of the company's request for her to go on the European tour. "All they had to do is wait 10 minutes."
