TNA haven't been able to build a womens feud as Gail Kim vs. Awesome Kong w/Raisha Saeed. Those two were made for each other and were each others career highlights. Hope eventually Kong comes back and she has a Last Woman Standing match with Kim.

Knockouts Division to me is no better or worse than the Divas.

Re: Women of TNA?

I used to half like the women in TNA but I am now back to skipping all of their segments.

Re: Women of TNA?

The KOs are a shell of their old self. In 2009 they were the only logically booked division, they had some great characters (Daffney, ODB, Love, Kong) and their ring skills were decent enough.

Marks for Austin Aries/D Bryan crew

Creams himself over Lesnars Entrance crew

Prefers watching wrestling intoxicated crew

Scott Steiner is the real GOAT crew

WF metal crew

Re: Women of TNA?

I agree with the concern and with the feeling that they are no longer what they once were.

And I'm loving the misogynistic double standard with the STD comment. In the minds of many a wrestling fan, female wrestlers are sluts, sleep their way to a push, and have STDs (read any topic about AJ Lee and tell me I'm wrong); whereas men legitimately earn pushes or get them by politicking. Guess it wouldn't sit well with a lot of guys if they imagined their favs getting bent over to secure their position, but if it's a woman, it's okay. If male wrestlers sleep around w/ring rats, it's okay; even though Tessmacher and Velvet Sky apparently have boyfriends, they're still sluts. They act/look slutty, yes, but what I don't like is that even if they didn't this kind of attitude would be the same. It's the problem I have w/their schtick, and I hate when Tessmacher does either of those moves, much how I hate powerbombs: crotch in the face = . Though I like Velvet Sky as a character, she's a perfect example of what a female wrestler should not be (in-ring talent barely existent, mostly sex appeal), and a perfect example of what a valet/manager should be.

In any case, I think the real issue is that, for the most part it seems like America/ns don't care about women's wrestling. And if the promotions themselves can't take it seriously, then why should the audience, who weren't inclined to do so in the first place? I genuinely think that Pritchard does not care about women's wrestling at all and, like the Divas, it's slowly being phased out. Because neither the Blossoms nor Taeler Hendrix are going to matter if the division stays the same. The promotion is very top heavy right now, pun not intended, and Knockouts are not a priority, it seems.

They might as well bring back the women dancing in cages if some people had their way, but I'd rather have them gone altogether than used like the Divas are. That is not what women's wrestling is. Have character, be attractive, but have the skills to back it up and the storylines to showcase the rest. Why give us something good only to take it away? The talent is there; TNA needs to care.

Re: Women of TNA?

Its not a double standard, its one female (me) telling others on the forum that woman's wresting has degraded to face humping.

No where did I say she was a slut, your mind just assumed that shit and put it on me.

Re: Women of TNA?

There are always rumours of homosexuality in wrestling over the years, male wrestles performing sexual acts for pushes and higher pay days. Fans see the women dating guys, then dumping them when they get a better gig while dating someone new at the better gig. Fans just connect the dots. The women aren't that talented and are just there to sell sex so it isn't hard to see where the attitude comes from.

I find that pretty odd considering the majority of there matches within the last couple weeks have been pretty good. It's not like the Knockouts haven't been about looks, they have. I hate that. I'm sorry, if you don't count Kong, gimme one so-so looking KO. They've been about tits and ass from the start, look at their photo shoots. Back when they were talking about "we're not models" they were doing photoshoots that bordered pornographic. The difference is, they still had badass women's action. What's changed? The women they have. They need fresh blood.

It's better than the divas division. You have to be crazy to think otherwise.
