Didn't TNA and Playboy have a deal or was it a one time deal?
One time deal.
I think TNA hoped this shoot would open the doors to feature more Knockouts over time (like Lacey Von Erich and Tara who would've loved to do it, Tara's been campaigning to be in Playboy since 2002) but the Traci shoot frankly sucked and even Playboy acknowledged that by relegating it to the website instead of the more widely available magazine.
I think that's why several Knockouts are in the June issue of Penthouse in an interview, to test reaction (Tara said she was "appearing" to help drive up sales and interest with people thinking she's posing nude), to test the waters for future pictorals.
