Exclusive: Isis the Amazon Booked for TNA Tryout

One-time WWE NXT star, Isis the Amazon (aka Aloisia) will meet with TNA officials in Orlando tomorrow (Monday), Diva Dirt can confirm.

Additionally, Isis posted a teaser on her Twitter page alluding to the meeting: “Heading to Orlando tomorrow.. & no, not to visit family this time ;)”

Isis was briefly signed to a WWE contract last year but released just one week before she was due to make her television debut on NXT last September.

EDIT: I’m told that Isis will indeed be having an in-ring tryout tomorrow night at the Impact Zone.

    I’m not surprised. She was signed by WWE so TNA are coming after her. Hopefully, TNA don’t sign her yet. She’s still a bit ackward in the ring. Wait a few months. Either way they probaly want her because of her height and they need another monster wrestler since WWE has 2 (Beth/Kong).

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    Intresting to say the least

  • LaceyVonErichFan

    Tryout match? Hm hopefully it’s someone who can actually make her look good.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    well, its obviously she is gonna be signed lol there are two reason,
    1. she was signed by wwe
    2.she is bigger than normal and plus she will be a replacement for kong who WWE signed

    but it will be very surprising if they sign her because wwe wouldnt put her on TV because she wasnt ready for TV, lets see how long it takes TNA

    didn’t she just sign with llusa a few weeks back? she could just be hanging with her boyfriend?? =/

  • Macho Madness

    I KNEW IT!!!

    This would definitely be VERY interesting for the KO division.

  • Chk

    I’m going to go against the grain … I don’t think this is a bad idea. Should TNA Wrestling sign Isis the Amazon, they should booker her like an unstoppable monster. Don’t have her “wrestle”, have her dominate like Awesome Kong’s early run in the promotion. Have her over power the other Knockouts, with more power based moves. She can appear strong and powerful, and at the same time TNA Wrestling can hide her greenness and help her learn as she goes. This is a signing I believe TNA can invest in and help grow over time.

  • Macho Madness

    Please, it’s not because she was signed by WWE. She had a cup of coffee in WWE. It’s not like WWE made her a star. She did absolutely nothing in WWE. Look at her! How many 7foot women wrestlers are there out there! She is an attraction ala Andre The Giant. She is $$.

    …..HAHAHAHA. Go for it.

    My mouth dropped. This could be great. She has been training. It not like WWE made her a star so to me she’s like Thea. She is criminsons girlfriend so you never know.

  • http://www.widowspeakfreaks.webs.com ryanmvs

    And hey. If your friend said “hey dues there’s this 7ft female wrestler on spike TV!” would you wanna check it out?

  • Spideywebby

    Exactly. That is definitely not a case of because “WWE signed her before so TNA decide to pick her up.” Plus she doesn’t need to be awesome in the ring with her size. She just need to know how to do a few moves like scoop slam, clotheslines, big boot, a few punches throw in, suplexs & powerbombs & to keep her opponent safe in the ring etc. She just need the basics & other than that, all she need is a good storyline, good packaging, a cool look & she is ready to shine imo.

  • Macho Madness

    I agree 100% @Spideywebby. She doesn’t need to be awsome in the ring. She just needs exactally what you said. Was Andre The Giant awsome the ring? Big Show, Giant Gonzalez, Giant Baba, Great Khali, ect? Some of them moved better then the others, but none of them were technically great in the ring. They are box office attractions. Isis the Amazon is no diffrent.

  • Spideywebby

    Now i realize, the smaller size a person is, the more skillful he/she need to be to win fans/management over LOL

  • LaceyVonErichFan

    I can see were some of you are coming from. Someone with her size doesn’t need to be the best in the ring but only for the beginning of their career. If Isis was signed by TNA and used as a monster for a while that would be entertaining but as soon as she gets ‘compfortable’ in TNA after being there for lets say a year, people will get bored with her the same way people already get bored w/ Mark & Khali. TNA aren’t going to push the monster character for her whole TNA career and as soon as they stop, people won’t be interested in her anymore unless she can actually wrestle and pull off great matches.

  • The mickie express

    hahaha tna answer to wwe’s kong..take that bitch

  • Matt

    You’d expect them to sign her as it’s true that her wrestling ability doesn’t matter as much given her size, as long as nobody’s getting hurt.

    I wonder why she’s allowed to do this when Reby wasn’t, though.

  • igotthatpma1234

    I don’t understand why tna wouldn’t go after women like sara del rey or madison eagles those girls would fit in as monster heels just fine! Isis the amazon on her best day could lace up with awesome kong! The girl is a accident waiting to happen!

  • igotthatpma1234

    “Couldnt”

  • Rhawk

    Whats the point of having a tryout match, we all know she’s in because she WAS in WWE, those typs of has bees or never was’ are drawn to TNA like a fly to a light. I can see it now, ‘Making her way to the ring… ALOISIS!!!’ Dear God No! -.-”

  • darkangels

    she can wrestle for both companys both are under viacom corp umbrella i have to say this TNA signs a midget last week aka rosetta now thay might sign a giant aka isis there is a joke to be told somewhere in that this statement lol!!

  • Mikas

    TNA are clearly only interested in her size. Isis has a long way to go to become ‘decent’ in the ring. You rarely see good matches when a giant is involved, unless the giant is good in the ring. I’m afraid this will become a big disappointment when she is signed, there just isnt that much you can do with Isis. Just look at the matches of some of WWE’s giants like Khali. The standard giant 3-move set gives maybe 1 interesting feud, but after that it gets boring.

    If TNA wants a tall woman on their roster, then why not give a tryout to Melanie Cruise? She is 6ft tall and actually has skills. 6ft might not be tall enough to be called a giant, but its still much taller than the other knockouts, and even half the male roster.

  • http://www.widowspeakfreaks.webs.com ryanmvs

    I think some guys can train her. Maybe AJ? If anyone remembers when Christy was feuding with Kong there were video sessions of AJ training her (christy).Oh, he’s not tall. Maybe Matt Morgan. There the same height. Criminson is her boyfriend so im sure he would help.

  • WWFoverWWE

    hahah imagine isis vs. rosita, the tallest vs the smallest

  • Mikas

    “I think some guys can train her. Maybe AJ?”

    I’m sure TNA’s wrestlers can help her improve a little bit, but she lacks a lot of basic stuff. Just look at her clotheslines and ‘big boot’, they look terrible. And it’s not just the moves, also the way she moves around the ring and her selling. She needs a LOT of work.
