‘Claire Lynch’ Actress Reportedly Quit TNA Wrestling Due To Online Harassment

TNA Wrestling concluded the Claire Lynch storyline last 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.

Multiple TNA 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.” As a result, she quit TNA and immediately closed her professional accounts in an attempt to deflect the vitriol.

    I will say when she was talking about classless garbage. i am thinking of hulk hogan. i mean hogan is joke. he is what hhh was talking about on his promo on raw. guys hanging on too long. wrestle a match for big payday. waiting for something to pop. it is pathetic seeing hogan on tna tv. when he was throwing a punch. i thought old man was going to fall over. hulk hogan leave pro wrestling. u are not revelant anymore. your drawing days are long gone. this is not 80’s and 90’s anymore. just like great former manager jim cornette said 2 yrs ago. in shoot style interview. there is no denying he has made big impact in business. but there comes a time u have to step asdie. get out of way. i think that is very true. especially for hulk hogan. have u people seen hogan lately? just like kurt angle said in 2002 wwe. look at u hogan. u look like your 100 yr old! lol give it up old man!

  • I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Her acting was horrible so as to why she thinks informercials and Olive oil is acting is wrong Iv been to the popeye attraction not sure if it was her but the acting was horrible for that, but still shouldnt atack someone its one thing to say things to the charachter on tv becuse fan reaction good or bad is what makes a wrestler or charachter in some cases. Did anyone ever go to an old wcw show when raven and the flock were around people were so loud with angry comment at some shows that it was hard to hear what he was trying to say on the mic. people are slow in some cases and it takes them awhile to figure that wrestling is a show and people play roles. I remember when I was in high school and morons were convinced that the undertaker really was dead and immortal and that the bossman really dug up bigshows dad and draged him around the grave yard.

    Deva you fool and how is it there fault, as much as I hate those two tools its hardly their fault as did they tell the faceless, gutless dumbass who cant tell reality from make believe keyboard hardmen to harass her? I bet you were one of them.

    People have some big balls when they are hiding behind their keyboards

  • icp

    IWC for the motherfucking win!

  • Deva

    Yet another career ended by bishoff and hogan and their stupid storylines

  • poko

    That sucks. However, quiting mid-way through and leaving your employer in a bad position isn’t going to look good on her resume, either. There were much better ways to handle it.

    These dumbasses give wrestling fans a bad name.
