Bruce Prichard Wants The Knockout Division GONE?

TNA Head Reportedly Not A Fan Of Women's Wrestling

Quote:
The Wrestling Observer reports that one of the reasons 'some women' have quit TNA Wrestling in the past year stems from the belief that Bruce Prichard, Senior Vice President of Programming and Talent Relations, is not in favor of women's wrestling. This would also explain why the Knockouts division is not as given as much prominence as in the past, with only a few talents being highlighted.

Angelina Love and Velvet Sky reportedly left the promotion on their own accord and the roles of Mickie James, Rosita, Sarita and Winter were greatly curtailed after Prichard came into power last October.

I had a feeling that was a case since it was when he took over that the KO division really started to go down. Not to mention that he formerly worked for WWE and probably holds many of the same beliefs that others in the WWE office hold.

The Knockout Division was great. Only recently has it started sucking after people like Hamada, Awesome Kong, Daffney, and everyone else who made the division worth watching left. Also lets not forget them breaking up The Beautiful People.

I love how people are basicly saying that the KO division in 2009-11 was good. Stop lying people. It's been garbage ever since Dutch left.

Re: Bruce Prichard Wants The Knockout Division GONE?

I like the KO's for valets/managers/looking good/and when the women are characters like ODB/Awesome Kong(David vs Goliath storylines are a staple in wrestling) but the wrestling and prestige of the division really doesn't matter to me. They are fucking horrible on the mic and watching them wrestle is basically like watching women play football or softball.

I would agree to do away with division as we know it, but that just means switching it up a bit. Payless attention of the division, but get them involved more in TNA in general. Lita was with the Hardy Boys and sometimes she'd get power bombed through a table by the Dudles because of it, Trish was with TNT, Torrie Wilson was with Billy Kidman, Keibler was with David Flair... in TNA a lot of the time women "seemed" almost as if they were segregated and not allowed to talk to the male wrestlers and it was just them as individuals standing around in the back(ironically, I think that was done to make them look like equals to the men and strong and independent professionals.)

I think KO's need them men to get them over by association. For instance, imagine the type of heat a KO would get if she were manager/valet for Kaz/Daniels. Anyway, I just think TNA has to go with a different approach and I don't think Prichard means to wipe them off the roster.

It may have had problems, but it got a lot more time and featured a lot more of the women wrestlers.

I would be so happy if the knockouts division was gone. No matter who's in the match...I'm never interested in a women's match..I just don't care.
