    i always find it awkward when tna mention wwe – especially by name, but hearing tara call the wwe divas barbie doll supermodels was quite fun :)

  • appleman58

    looks like odb maybe going heel and i think victoria just threw away possible hall of fame status in wwe

  • Kaledrina

    i’m still new to kristal as i tuned out of wrestling during her wwe run, but that was quite the promo by her. better than i was expecting.

  • nicorette

    I love Tara. She is awesome. She is an extremely talented performer and also very good on the mic.
    However, I can’t help but I say I lost a little respect for her. This is not the first time she has talked badly about the womens division in WWE, and I can’t help but feel like it is getting a little too much. If the Knockouts Division is sooo great, why do they need to keep bashing the divas? I understand that she was probably told to say that, but it kind of comes to a point where its like, ok, we understand that you think your division is better than the womens division. And it arguably is. But keep saying that just makes it look horrible when theres a bad night on Impact for womens wrestling. Which does happen sometimes, I didn’t think that battle royal last week was that great at all.

    The fans love Kristal more than they do Bobby.

  • Kaledrina

    if anything, tara is only saying what everybody already knows. for that, she gains my respect rather than loses some. i commend her for being fearless. it’s nice to know wwe didn’t completely suck away at her passion like it did for others before her.

  • Kaledrina

    sidenote, that’s the second commerical during tna i’ve seen tonight that’s starred candice michelle

  • nicorette

    i agree with that. Everyone knows it. However, if its so great shouldn’t the wrestling speak for itself rather than them keep speaking negatively about the WWE? Weren’t many of the now knockouts not even WWE rejects but DSW and OVW rejects?

  • nicorette

    And, I have been impressed with some of Tara’s matches on TNA and some I thought she could have done a lot better. If TNA spent more time focusing on them than the divas I think we would see even better quality matches because they have some awesome knockouts.

    OH MY GOSH … THE MATCH BETWEEN SARITA AND HAMADA WAS THE BEST WOMEN’S WRESTLING MATCH IN A VERY LONG TIME! Amazing, I’d love to see Sarita and Hamada in another match for the TNA Knockout’s Championship!! :)

  • nicorette

    awesome match!

  • TNAFan80

    It was also nice to see the crowd get behind Hamada during the match and start chanting for her!

  • nicorette

    the match was great, too bad it was only like 3 or 4 minutes. maybe hamada is getting a push now?

  • TNAFan80

    Hamada and a Mystery Partner vs. Sarita and Taylor Wilde for the Knockout’s Tag Team Championship! I could see this added to Impact next week or even the Final Resolution pay-per-view.

    Possible spoiler … Hamada and Awesome Kong are currently scheduled to be teaming together this weekend against The Beautiful People during the TNA Live Events in the New England/New York area.

    I was more intrigued with the pseudo-prison chicks segment with Lauren and TBP then anything with the other Knockouts tonight. Lauren might just be a freak. Everytime she gets bullied around, she makes some.. *cough* interesting.. sounds. True story. haha

    Tara and ODB’s backstage stint was just awful to watch. About 15 seconds into it, I paused the DVR until the segment was over then fast forwarded it.

    The match was VERY SD Diva-quese or X-Division-quese. There’s no way in hell doing the same amount of moves you would do in a 10-15 min match in a 2-3 min match and get the same match. Seriously. As soon as you get the chance to go ‘Oh, did you see that?’ they do a different move. Then before you can guess what the hell they just did, they do ANOTHER move. Jebus. Good thing that Japanese chick or that luchadore lady doesn’t have a character. They would be totally wasted. But, if another Japanese chick or luchadore lady comes in, they be screwed. You couldn’t tell them a part in a true Divas or X-Division way.

  • TNAFan80

    WOW .. disrespectful much? The “Japanese chick” is Hamada (Ayako Hamada) and the “Luchadore lady” is Sarita (Canadian Sarah Stock) …. both very respected International female wrestlers.

  • ebmich

    And as an AMERICAN watcher, what exactly should I be drawn to them? As far as TNA has presented them, that’s all they are. A Japanese chick who likes to kick stiff and a luchadore lady who is in a tag team. That match was a bad display because they tried to damn hard to go “I CAN PUT ON A GOOD MATCH!”

    159745648 moves in a 3 min doesn’t make it a great match. It just means you just did 159745648 moves in a 3 min match.

  • xxChristinaxx

    ebmich: WOW, you can’t be serious?

  • TNAFan80

    That’s right as an “AMERICAN” fan, it has been beat into your head that the only good female “wrestling” match is cheap fluff wrestling matches. Like “Bra & Panties Matches” … “Jell-o and Pudding Matches“ … “Paddle on a Pole Matches”.

    Ok tara we get your point u came to work for the best GEESH. and she said the wwe made her look like a FOOL well at least they let her hold a title for more than 3 or 4 weeks. and idk why she just let ODB pound on her when her and KONG had all out brooklyn brawls??

  • chrisP

    Tara’s comments were funny due to the fact that when she was signed by WWE in 2000, she was not exactly a veteran wrestler, to put it nicely. Maybe if WWE brings back the Diva Search, TNA can have Christy Hemme cut a promo about how those girls haven’t paid their dues.

  • Garouix

    I love how people take what the TNA writers scripted Tara to say *in character* seriously. It’s part of TNA competing with WWE, and while it may be childish — Tara is just doing her job. She did the same for WWE too, but at least TNA allows her to showcase her talent rather than have her job (and not just job, but flat out be dominated) by newcomers.

    WTF?!?!??!?!?!?!
    1.- ODB wrestle on TNA in 2007, what the hell does she build?
    2.- WHO TRIED TO BE A DIVA LIKE 2347134 TIMES? ODB, and they SAID NO!
    3.- TARA CALLING THE DIVAS “BARBIE DOLLS”, DOESNT HAVE ANY RESPECT FOR HER EX WORKMATES?, I MEAN I SEE TWEETS FROM HER TO: Layla, eve, k2, like MISS U, YOU ARE MY PRINCESS AND ALL THE SHIT, HOW DARE YOU?!!! SHE WENT TO TNA TO BE THE BEST?, sorry but you are going to be the best, if you are the best, no matter THE COMPANY!, you held the womens championship 2 times, you go into hardcore, cage, street fight matches, you got some of the GREATEST FEUDS EVER, and now you are a disgraceful bit!#%?!
    4.- CHRISTY n TARA HAVE TO TALK TRASH ABOUT WWE DIVAS!, and some day they would be back like Gail, and that just would be at the bottom of NASTY!
    5.- TIRED OF BE A JOKE? WHY DO YOU GO INTO A 25 DIVA BATTLE ROYAL AT WRESTLEMANIA?

    FOR ME TARA HAS LOST ALL MY RESPECT!

  • mr_socko

    gmosoto, i think you need to chill out a bit. just because tara did something you didn’t agree with, there is no noeed to “lose all respect” for her. she’s hardly committed a crime. no need to shout, either.
    :)

  • xxChristinaxx

    Tara was telling nothing but the TRUTH.
    I guess the truth hurt sometimes.
