Return to TNA (2013-2014)Edit
On January 27, 2014 it was announced by the promoter of Shine Wrestling, Sal Hamaoui, that Santana has signed a contract with TNA. Santana made her official debut on the March 13 edition of Impact Wrestling under the name Brittany as a face and defeated Gail Kim in singles action. During the April 3 edition of Impact Wrestling, Brittany and Madison Rayne lost to the Beautiful People after Angelina pinned Brittany. During the April 10 edition of Impact Wrestling, Brittany wrestled in a four-way match against ODB, Angelina Love and Gail Kim for the No. 1 contender for the Knockouts Championship, which was won by Angelina. Brittany and Rayne once again competed against The Beautiful People, only this time in a tag team elimination evening gown match on the May 8 episode of Impact Wrestling, which The Beautiful People won. On the May 22 episode of Impact Wrestling, Brittany received her first shot at the TNA Knockouts Championship against Angelina Love, but was unsuccessful in capturing the title. After the match, The Beautiful People would attack Brittany with Gail Kim making the save. This led to a tag team match, where The Beautiful People defeated Kim and Brittany on the May 29 episode of Impact Wrestling. After the match, the storyline between Brittany and Madison developed into a lesbian angle with Brittany enamoring of Rayne which made her feel uncomfortable.
On the following edition of Impact Wrestling, Rayne received her rematch clause, but she was defeated after a distraction by Sky, with Brittany just standing there, per Rayne's orders to do so. Brittany failed to become the #1 Contender to Love's championship when she competed in a triple-threat match against Madison Rayne and Gail Kim.
On the July 3 episode of Impact Wrestling, Brittany agreed to honor Rayne's wishes to just become friends, and the two hugged each other. Brittany turned into a villainess by attacking Rayne and later vowing to destroy her. On the following week, the evil Brittany attacked Rayne as they made their entrance to a Knockouts Championship four-way match, which was won by Gail Kim and also included Angelina Love. On the July 17 edition of Impact Wrestling, Brittany was defeated by Rayne in a No Count Out, No Disqualification Match. Brittany has also appeared on Xplosion, losing matches to Rayne and Gail Kim.
After her rivalry with Rayne ended, Brittany was moved to an angle with Samuel Shaw in mid–September, where she began showing signs of affection towards Shaw, similar to which Shaw had previously shown to Christy Hemme. Brittany laughed evilly after she went on to successfully seduce Shaw into turning against his tag team partner Gunner, establishing themselves as a (kayfabe) couple. On December 5, Garrett announced that she is no longer under contract to TNA.
