Via her official Twitter account (@VelVelHoller), Jamie Szantyr – better known as Velvet Sky, has announced that she has been granted her release from TNA Impact Wrestling.

“I have been granted my release by TNA at this time. It’s what’s best for me right now and I wanted to thank TNA and all the fans for their constant support in me. Stay tuned though
And I also want to thank Vince Russo for creating and believing in the team of The Beautiful People. We had a great run! @Actualalove.”

Joining TNA Wrestling in 2007, Velvet Sky had a good run with Angelina Love as “The Beautiful People”. She captured the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championships with The Beautiful People in March 2010, with the trio using the “Freebirds Rule” and holding the belts for over 140 days. At the 2011 Bound For Glory pay per view, the TNA Impact Wrestling flagship event, Velvet won the TNA Knockouts Championship, which she held for 4 weeks.
