You can check out their tweets denying the rumors that their contracts are expiring and they are leaving TNA after Slammiversary below.
Neither of their contracts are up for several months. Amazed you would report something so totally wrong. https://t.co/HJSAeo9efV

ORIGINAL: Both Teryn Tarrell and Awesome Kong’s TNA contracts have expired as of this weekend. Slammiversary is expected to be the last show for both Knockouts unless they come to terms at the very last minute.
The departures follow in the footsteps of Austin Aries, James Storm and Magnus, all of whom have departed over the last week.
