I don't understand why they are pushing her to the moon, Velvet is not even the most over Knockout babyface right now, Mickie and even Tara are more over than her (Tara was getting BIG pops during her match at the last Hardcore Justice PPV), hell her character is not even likeable. If they don't want Mickie or Tara to be the top face then have Brooke Tessmacher be it. She has a better look and has more wrestling talent on her pinky than Velvet has on her whole body despite the fact that Velvet Sky been wrestling for 8 years and Brooke has been wrestling for only 1 year.

BTW Most people don't believe for a second that Velvet Sky was "Bullied", I wouldn't be shocked if she was actually a bully in her youth.

We just had a thread very much like this merely a couple of days ago.

I can understand not liking someone, but this smacks of practically looking to latch onto or invent reasons. There is little way any of us could have accurate details about what she was doing with other girls in grade school.

I have nothing personal against Velvet Sky, I just don't think she is the one to lead the knockoust divsion, I don't it wise for TNA to have her be the number one knockout, her skills just aren't good enough and she lacks charisma. I also think its laughable to think she was bullied in her youth. I just think it is not believable.

Results wise, she's not the #1 knockout. That would require doing a lot more winning than she has usually done. She's getting a solo push after years in the company mostly jobbing in her solo matches. So what?

Lacks charisma? Can't say she stands out as highly lacking in that area. Certainly not moreso than quite a few people the harder line members of the iwc have tended to support over the years.

It's a sports entertainment storyline. And one many of her critics would have no problem with if her "workrate" were higher.

Why isn't it believable for her to have been bullied? Wrestling is a joke to people before someone makes it big, and she didn't have her implants in until a couple of years ago.

Correct me if I'm wrong but how many times did she win the title? 0? I can't remember but I think she's next up to bat and it doesn't matter if she can hit or not. lol

Dude, girls can be fucking cruel in grade school & into high school. I saw some nasty shit in my day. Doesn't matter if Velvet was a looker, she could definitely have been the victim of cruelty at the hands of other girls.

Velvet Sky is getting the push as she is perhaps the most popular knockout, so if your looking at it like that yes she does deserve the push, because the audience love her

Does she deserve the push based on her wrestling ability or Mic Skills, absolutley not she is woeful in both departments

She is the Kelly Kwlly of TNA. And I think most hate towards her is the fact that originally the KO division was "we are not divas". That their girls can wrestle and not just a pretty face (like ODB and Kong being multiple champs). And Vel is everything that is a WWE diva, poor ring skills, poor mic skills, but a looker. And that Vel is now the top face, you can see how some die hard/old school TNA fans arent happy about it.

Velvet Sky has never been KO Champion despite being an original KO. It is time to let her have a run with the belt. She is very over as well and the not being a great wrestler thing can be applied to many Women wrestlers so that isn't a good excuse.

Conversely, quite a few old school style fans wanted Bubba Ray Dudley fired. Instead, he is doing arguably the best mic work in TNA and is one of the most convincing heels in the entire business.

Yes she is extremely over.

As for being bullied its awfully short-sighted and idiotic to say you don't believe she was bullied because shes good-looking NOW.

The type of person who says that usually were bullies themselves....see how generalizations can be hurtful???

I see a lot of the defenders of Velvet Sky here are saying she is over, but just about every TNA knockout babyface is over and she is NOT more over than Mickie.

In a TNA.com poll last year (with over 10,000 votes,) Velvet finished second among Knockouts in popularity. Trailing only Angelina Love (someone else that isn't exactly embraced by traditionalists.)

She gets good reactions and has a definite if not as indy or foreign scenes geared fanbase. Face it, she is certainly popular enough that using anti arguments in that area basically amounts to grasping at straws.

Mickie is more over then velvet but with that said velvet is the second most over KO right now.

Yes she deserve it she been in TNA for 4 years worked her ass off for the company. While her wrestling skills are not the greatest she is decent enough to be champion and decent enough to be in the ring. Her charisma and mic skills (yes she can speak on the mic good) makes up for her wrestling ability. Plus she gorgeous. This is my Opinion

I wish that we had more of these having half the KO division as models and the other as freaks/competiors was awesome.Bring back Roxxi,Kim,Hamada,flash,Wilde.
