More On Why Julia ‘Claire Lynch’ Reilly Quit TNA

Partial Source: Pwinsider.com

TNA Wrestling concluded the Claire Lynch storyline Thursday night on iMPACT! Wrestling with her “legal representative” revealing that she never was pregnant and had agreed to blackmail AJ Styles after being approached by Daniels and Kazarian—she drugged Styles and took scandalous photos suggesting he was the father of her fake baby. Lynch did not appear during the segment since she quit the promotion.

There is a longer version of the story, which explains why she left but several TNA but multiple sources have confirmed that Lynch, whose real name is Julia Reilly, immediately quit the company after her identity was discovered online and wrestling fans began bombarding her professional website, YouTube and LinkedIn accounts with “derogatory and hateful messages about her acting, her character’s actions and her character’s appearance.”

As a working actor, Reilly didn’t want potential employers and casting directors researching her to come across the hateful scorn, which was described as “some of the most classless garbage you’d expect to see, just low rent message board loser stuff (by monique at dresshead).” As a result, she quit TNA and immediately closed her professional accounts in an attempt to deflect the vitriol.

The moral of the story – she was upset about her real identity being revealed and quit the company. There are many people rolling their eyes over this.

  7. TwIsTeD_EnEmY says:

    I thought it was funny how much of a pop her Legal representative got by just reading a script with a straight face and monotone voice

  8. Timmyland says:

  9. purpleurkel says:

    She quit??? blessing in disguise for TNA.

    (un oh,, is this classless vitirole from an online loser? sorry olive oyl)

  10. Dante_Cross says:

    I dont know why she is embarrassed about TNA, I mean she wasn't a good actress and was probably not going anywhere in her acting career. Now she can show people that she has been on national TV and broadcast to millions across the world. She doesn't have to go into details aside from if they watch the tape, explain what her character was doing and the people will be like Ok, they must have seen something in you.

  11. Kellz_Elite says:

    wrestling fans…smh

  12. DigestivBiscuit says:

    Now as she left TNA we hope not to see or hear her news here again but the next thing will know is " EX TNA STAR CLAIRE LYNCH… BLAH BLAH BLAH"

  13. pepsilover2008 says:

    That is why you should only do work you can be proud of, i can't believe she thought her name wouldn't come out by the end of this. Glad it's over though

  14. TFnatureboyfig4 says:

    If she can't handle public criticism, she shouldn't do something she sucks at in front of a public audience.

    If she was good at what she did, she likely would have been getting compliments. That's the way that works.

  15. tnadude says:

    Opinion: She was awful, deserves criticism, and needs to grow up and deal with it. But sending her hateful messages? Seriously? Gimme a break. It's a D@MNED TV SHOW for crying out loud! She's still a human being. She tried, and she failed. She didn't harm anyone in the process.

    So, it's poll time:
    Thumbs UP if you think it's immature to send her hateful messages.

    Thumbs DOWN if you think it's OK to send her hateful messages.

    REPLY if you sent her hateful messages and have the balls to admit it.

    • IW4EVA says:

      @Tnadude, i am of similar views to that of you , why blame only her. ….what about Dixies role in the story line what about the entire storyline itself…. the story line sucked more than the character of Claire lynch … the guys who wrote the storyline needs to be criticized and not just lynch ….

      The fans who are sending hateful messages to her infact need to send it to the person or team who wrote the storyline .

  16. TnaCanada1 says:

    She was bad very bad and happy she's gone

  17. whatsup121 says:

    imagine clair lynch and chyna going porn together worst episode ever

  18. JoeWrestling says:

    So basically more TNA characters from phoney storylines getting real heat once again. I'll say it again, the reason TNA does poorly when it does is because people actually believe everything they see on the TV and get upset and blame TNA. At least in this case people blame this woman more than TNA, but if she hadn't been an actor hired in, they'd be trashing TNA for all her actions. The reason the ratings are up now is because TNA makes it seem like Impact is actually being invaded by a gang. TNA is often a victim of it's own success because in todays world everyone blames the company or writer for what's on the TV instead of giving the blame to the heel where it's supposed to go. Everything they didn't like on the TV was Russo or TNA's fault, not the heel ruining the show.

    • JoeWrestling says:

      Nevermind, they already blamed TNA for it. Kaz and Daniels said Claire wasn't there because of a problem with her pregnancy, and Bryan/Vinny Show is ragging on TNA for making light of a real medical condition people have. So once again TNA is to blame and gets the heat, where the heel should get heat. You'd expect the TNA bashing to resume again though for the haters who profit from WWE audience.

  19. Roid Master says:

    She's a foot.

  20. hangers says:

    Look, Im glad shes gone and the storyline is over, but if anyone was emailing her personal accounts with negative messages then they are weak & faceless and should be held accountale for their actions..

  21. Leg Drop Jobber says:

    Message board loser stuff? I'll be damned if I go see any of her future Oscar winning performances.

    I wonder if she's any better as Olive Oil on the Popeye ride at Universal in Orlando? I mean, that's a hard character to pull off!

  22. rawuncutnxrated says:

    The reason she quit was because of the misogynistic views of a large number of wrestling fans. I wonder how many took to AJ & Dixie's personal accounts & lambasted them for the terrible story? How about Daniels & Kaz? No, instead they pick on a woman who isn't in the industry. When TNA hires guys like PacMan Jones & over pays for his "services" people slam TNA, so this time they hired a cheaper actress and got what they paid for. Shouldn't the onus be on TNA then? Not only that no one is going to trounce the men's names for getting some sex instead you read this site & you hear about what kind of dirty woman she is. It was all in storyline & the only one who got slut shamed in the ordeal was the one person who had nothing to do with any of it, she was only hired as a cheap way to go to do a story line & they didn't have to pay or worry about travel expenses. I feel bad for the lady, only in wrestling will playing an actor roll will you get harassed & trash talked in your personal life.

  23. RealCreative says:

    bye bye baby

  24. She did good tna just sucks leave her along
