Good to see “the wrestler formerly known as” Victoria back on TV. Hopefully in TNA she’ll have more impact, instead of getting jobbed out every week and “retiring” with no previous build up or fanfare (like in the WWE).
One thing I noticed in her debut on the 5/28/09 TNA Impact program was that Victoria and Angelina Love were trading some good punches. That’s a refreshing change from the weak forearms that the female wrestlers normally use. The forearms just don’t look as good- there’s no real connection there. When you throw in a pile of hair it just looks like it’s totally missing. I wonder if that’s a WWE rule (don’t break the merchandise). I’m trying to remember if TNA Knockouts punch a lot. Punching “like a girl” never looked so good.
But remember, closed fist are illegal in a regular match 😉
I think the girls are the funniest to watch. It’s really frustrating that a lot of them are only concerned and focused on how popular their looks make them, instead of their wrestling skills (or lack there of). Sure, glamorous, tight outfits and fake boobs can get you pretty far in show business… but I think they need to stop letting girls use the WWE as a stepping stone, and start hiring girls with both physical appeal AND talent. Like Mickey James and Beth Phoenix. Just a thought.
