TNA Knockout Debuting for Shine Wrestling

Raquel TNA

Yet another current TNA Knockout will be part of the Florida-based Shine Wrestling promotion as Gabi “Raquel” Castrovinci will make her Shine Wrestling debut on tomorrow’s SHINE 36 event.

Gabi has had a spectacular year so far since her time on Tough Enough. Despite her early elimination from the program, Gabi has continued wrestling for the independent circuit, before she was signed by TNA in January 2016, debuting under the name Raquel. In her first appearances, Raquel portrayed a villainous femme fatale who had her sights on Lashley, with every segment appearing to feature Raquel tempting Lashley to turn to the dark side. The angle was quickly dropped, even though Lashley did turn, after TNA officials were disappointed in Raquel’s in-ring work during the tapings of this year’s Knockouts Knockdown PPV.

BromansRaquelAfter weeks of being off TV, Raquel returned as the babyface valet for The BroMans (Robbie E and Jessie Godderz), and has even competed in the six sided ring in her return. She has continued to compete on the independent scene even during her run as a Knockout, including a recent match against Alexxis, the real-life wife of TNA’s Eddie Edwards. Raquel was the villainess in her bout against Alexxis, and honestly, I do want a heel turn from Raquel in TNA. She displays a villainous persona on the indies, and she has a natural heel look that I’ve noticed ever since Tough Enough.

As for SHINE 36, Raquel will face off against Kelly Klein, who currently serves as one of the Women of Honor. Raquel will be one of three current Knockouts competing at the event, as Allysin “Sienna” Kay will compete against Xandra Bale, and Marti Belle will team with Jayme Jameson as the SHINE Tag Team Champions, defending their titles against Amanda Carolina Rodriguez and La Rosa Negra; two-thirds of Las Sicarias with current SHINE Champion Ivelisse.
