  • Foxy with wwe already 11 years, time goes by so quick. Oh No Ember no oinger advertised, this is a sad news definitely. Please don’t turn Becky heel, she is an amazing babyface.

    Congratulations to Nikki Roxx – lovely lady and sorely missed in the ring!

    Congratulations to Alicia Fox; just wish the WWE would capitalise on her athleticism and experience in the ring and give her a much deserved push, preferably without shoehorning her into the directionless “crazy” shtick.

    Sad to hear about Ember Moon, but perhaps they could turn the injury into an angle where Asuka wanted to take her out because she was intimidated by Moon.

  • Congrats to Foxy, she really is a gem of the division, so good yet so underrated. I hope to see this happen at least once before she retires

  • If Charlotte is being quoted saying she specifically wants to main event against Becky– better believe that’s what we’re gonna get very soon.

    I recently re-watched Becky Lynch and Charlotte’s Royal Rumble match and while it was a superb showing, given how both performers have grown since then, a revisit to their rivalry could be a defining thing for the blue brand. Get it done, WWE.

    I’ve realised, that girls who don’t get a huge push or aren’t the centrepiece of the division tend to have much longer careers in the background. Nattie, Foxy, Layla, Rosa, Naomi (until the last few months) and I am sure i’m missing some others. Congrats to Foxy though! Such a great achievement and I don’t believe she needs a title to prove she’s one of the divisions best at this point.

    Ugh I so wanted to see Nikki Roxx in the women’s tournament but I am happy for her. She one of my all time favorite knockouts. I loved her interview on the Knckouts DVD I have.

    Congrats too Foxxy on being in the company for 11 years. She truly deserves a title for this! Or just deserves a title reign period.

    Lastly poor Ember. I was hoping this would be the ppv she finally claims the gold. But I guess Asuka will retain because I doubt they’ll put the title on Ruby or Nikki so soon.

    • KatyaMenelli

      Omg I loved her segment in the Knockouts DVD. It was everything a wrestling fan wanted to hear and some.

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Yesss!!! Exactly!

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Hmmm, so does that mean they decided to give Alexa the title just a day before the PPV? Not the first time, it just got to suck for whoever’s champ when stuff like that happen.

    If Ember is indeed out of the match I still want Asuka to be dethroned. I’m rooting for Riot.

  • ?K . A . T ?

    Congratulations to Roxxi!! She was my fav KO in TNA when she was there. Unfortunate news about Ember, without her I’m 100% sure Asuka is retaining. Can’t see them putting the belt on Nikki or Riot (Nikki maybe but it’s a long shot). Wishing Ember a speedy recovery.
