Recent WWE Tryout; Two Independent Wrestlers Film WWE Commercial

Independent wrestler Buggy Nova took part in a tryout with WWE last week while the company were in California.

According to a report, Buggy was at the Raw taping in Anaheim last week, as well as the SmackDown taping in Las Vegas.

Nova took part in a tryout match against SmackDown Diva, AJ. She appeared to thank AJ via Twitter, also, writing: “An unforgettable Thank You to @WWEAJLee.”

Additionally, Nova and another independent wrestler Lizzy Valentine — best known for appearing in MTV’s short lived Wrestling Society X show as the manager of Evan Bourne and portraying Kandi Kisses on Wrestlicious — filmed a commercial with WWE Superstar Sheamus last Wednesday. No word yet what the commercial is for. There’s a picture of the trio here.

    This is interesting…

  • xxQOXxx

    Buggy Yes, Lizzy No!.
    We don’t need someone else that can’t wrestle.

    • JamieKym

      Lizzy wrestlers better than Buggy IMO.

      • xxQOXxx

        Lizzy is an AWFUL wrestler…IMO

          Buggy = Yay
          Lizzy = Nay

        • JamieKym

          I do like Buggy. Don’t get me wrong. I want both of these women to take the contract or get signed. I’m afraid for dizzy though. She’s turned down on 2 separate ocassions.

  • http://shohanusa.proboards.com/ LuckySeven

    …very interesting.

  • thejoshifanx

    OMG Buggy! I would so mark out if she was in WWE and was used right in an actual women’s division! She’s cute and is a pretty decent wrestler. I don’t think they would hire her though because of her look or the would change her which would be dumb.

    • thejoshifanx

      they*

    • Jake

      She falls into the came category as Britani Knight, Ashley Massaro, Kaitlyn, Katie Lea, and Raquel Diaz when it comes to the look department.

      • thejoshifanx

        I don’t think so. I find Buggy good looking while I don’t find any of those women attractive. She has a nice face and is good looking but normal. She also has a very weird personality which I like.

        • http://www.twitter.com/_voodoochild Viva La Diva

          I agree.

        • Marshy

          There is nothing wrong with Buggy’s look.

        • thejoshifanx

          Were you directing that comment to me? Because I said I liked her look haha

        • Marshy

          Well you do keep an very open mind in terms of looks.

        • thejoshifanx

          Uh what the hell are you talking about? I said I liked Buggy’s look and she was hot.

          So what if I don’t like the other women? I don’t find them facially attractive. They aren’t my type.

      • thejoshifanx

        Oooh misread that! Sorry :X I thought you were telling me to keep an open mind. Yes though I do. I’d take Jessicka Havok and Sara del Rey over every one of the divas haha.

    • Jake

      So you’re saying because you find Buggy attractive, wwe wont sign her? Buggy is very attractive.. that is probably why wwe gave her a tryout in the first place. I don’t think WWE has ever done a drastic change to these girls looks before. The only one I can think of is Aksana but they actually made her go gothic.

      • thejoshifanx

        No I’m saying because she is alternative looking that they won’t sign her or if they do they would change her. They don’t like their women to stand out.

        Aksana = gothic? LOLOLOLOLOL not even close. Just because she has black hair and wears some black doesn’t make her a goth. She’s a dominatrix if anything. Goth = MsChif or just type gothic woman into Bing Images.

        • Raekon

          You forgot Daffney as a goth. :)

        • thejoshifanx

          Haha well I was just using the best example :P

  • Rhawk

    I haven’t seen much of Buggy’s matches, but from what I’m heard from her, she not all that bad. Lizzy is also a fun personality in wrestling as well, so if either or both of these women end up in the E then I wouldn’t mind it, but of course with the way the divas are perseved right now, is it worth bringing up any more indie gals?

    • thejoshifanx

      Yeah I agree. While I like women such as Buggy, Jessicka Havok, Mercedes Martinez, and Sara del Rey who have shown interest in WWE, call me selfish but I’d rather see them used properly.

  • WWFoverWWE

    NEXT!!! please don’t hire unneeded lameness.

    • thejoshifanx

      Unneeded lameness? Buggy Nova is one of the most unique female wrestlers out there and is a billion times better than the generic divas models that they hire.

      • WWFoverWWE

        I liked her goth look but I doubt WWE will let her look that way. They’ll just turn her into another diva.

        • thejoshifanx

          Yeah I agree. I love her look, especially considering I am alternative looking. I don’t see them signing her but if they ever had a legitimate women’s division then I would like to see her eventually several years down the road after she hones her craft. There was still no need to call her lame though. While she’s no Ayako Hamada, Jenny Sjodin, Mercedes Martinez, or Sara del Rey in the ring, she has a unique look and should get better over time.

  • skyliner and holler

    Ummm I thought lizzy had already said no to wwe even though she would be perfect for them, love her look :D

    • JamieKym

      She did turn down a contract for WWE in late 2010. Thought people forgot about it.

  • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

    buggy i had to lol…but she seems like a nice fit with a name change of course lol…but she cant have the emo/goth look or she’ll end up like katie lea….

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

    She looks like ke$ha ! OMG, Thats a good thing.. for me at least. I haven’t seen her work ,but I wish her the best :)

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/DivasManiaHD xILOVENATTIEx

      she has a similar face, but honestly she is much prettier then Ke$ha, although i do think she can also be really pretty some times

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        Yeah, its the face and eye color I guess. Buggy is more attractive, but I find ke$ha pretty cute also.

  • Williambitious

    Hmm.. don’t know what to think of this.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    wow, WWE are really getting alot of female indepentent wrestlers try outs frist Alpha Female, Rachelle St Claire, and Erin Angel, in November, now Buggy Nova, and one can only think Lizzy also got a try out

    Hopefully some of them get signed :)

  • Jhonmarco

    Yes for Buggy! No for Lizzy :p

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/DivasManiaHD xILOVENATTIEx

    OMG, my heart skipped a beat when i saw Buggy! She NEEDS to be in the WWE she is the most stunning girl i have ever seen

  • thejoshifanx

    This is the type of woman that I like. Hot but normal. Not all fake like divas. I don’t want to speak for everyone else but this is what’s good looking to me.

  • DarknessRuler

    Lizzy Valentine is like a Latina Kelly Kelly. I was a huge fan of hers to be honest, but I haven’t catched up with her lately.

    • Anthony

      Wait, is Lizzy spanish? If so, I never knew that haha

      • DarknessRuler

        She looks like it….lol

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

    Can somebody give me some good matches of buggy? lol I kinda want to see her work. She seems interesting :)

    • thejoshifanx

      Well I tried posting links to YouTube but it wouldn’t let me

      • thejoshifanx

        If you add me on Yahoo Messenger I can send them to you

        • thejoshifanx

          Well maybe this shall work. youtube . com / (without spaces)
          watch?v=rYCpDbCF7Rc
          watch?v=b1ckd7IZSJc
          watch?v=CQTj8b5bQtU
          watch?v=_EVx5Hv9oXs

          I’m not sure if they are any good but it’s all I could find from 2011 on YouTube

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

          Nvm, I guess lmao. But thank you :). The links work.

        • thejoshifanx

          Well when I typed the entire URL it didn’t so I had to shorten it haha. You’re welcome :)

    • Mikas

      In addition to youtube, you can also check out NWA hollywood’s website (nwahollywood.com). They are a popular indy promotion in california with a regional tv show and they post all their tv episodes on their website. I think Buggy is in about 8 of them, and those videos are much better quality than the youtube ones (indie promotions that post on youtube usually have terrible camera work, or are fan-recorded videos).

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

        Thanks Mikas :). I will get on it :D.

      • JamieKym

        @mikas Lizzy also has some matches up there.

  • Anthony

    That would be awesome if Buggy got a contract. I like Lizzy and all, but there’s something about her that I just never took to. I’m curious as to why they would be shooting a WWE commercial if they didn’t work for WWE though.

    • Anthony

      Also, I think Buggy and Britani Knight would be a badass duo.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/LovableLittleRabbit?feature=mhum Megumi

    Hmm, maybe they’ll sign her and tag her up with Britani Knight (Saraya.) They both have that kind of beautiful gothic look and would work well in the ring together with their styles.

  • Caroline_Shea

    Watching Evan Bourne w/ Lizzy Valentine matches. haha I’m so dumb(: makes me wish Evan Bourne would go heel

  • Dave Muscarella

    Buggy is awesome. Considering she’s only been in the business for 2-3 years, she is pretty decent in the ring. She absolutely has that “look” that WWE likes too. I really hope she gets signed.

    Now, WWE needs to sign Courtney Rush, Jessie McKay, and Candice LaRae too!

    • Anthony

      I agree, I love Jessie McKay, she would be a perfect addition.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/DivasManiaHD xILOVENATTIEx

        She could form a team with Tenille,
        IMO wwe should work on signing Allexus, Athena, , Cherry Bomb and Alpha Female THEN you would have a proper divas division

      • thejoshifanx

        Can we add Jessicka Havok too haha?

        • thejoshifanx

          I could type out an entire RAW/Smackdown and FCW roster of women that’s how much I think about these things haha

        • Dave Muscarella

          I love Jessicka Havok, but I don’t think she is what WWE is looking for. She’s a little too “out there” I’d imagine.

        • thejoshifanx

          Haha yeah she is definitely out there that’s why I love her :D. I think she could be a total huge star though if WWE wanted to have a legit women’s division. She could get hugely over due to her wrestling, mic skills, acting, and hotness. I’d still love to see her on my TV though. I don’t see her in TNA but even if she was in a company that had more DVDs, like CHIKARA that would be the best I could hope for now haha.

        • thejoshifanx

          So maybe that wasn’t such a nifty idea :X CHIKARA is more “soft” than the WWE. Well, damn it, I want Jessicka on my TV. Even if I have to create my own wrestling company someday

        • Mikas

          Jesicka in Chikara? LOL, glad you corrected yourself ;-)

          WWE = PG, but Chikara = TV-Y7-FV
          Quackenbush keeps a blacklist of wrestlers who use foul language on the show, and those are no longer welcome. I dont think Jesicka would last longer than 2 minutes ;-)

        • thejoshifanx

          Well Eddie Kingston is their champion so if Jessicka Havok can clean it up for CHIKARA I don’t see why she couldn’t wrestle for them. But even so yeah she’s not exactly Rated Everyone. I wish TNA didn’t call their women knockouts and call them wrestlers (complete with a women’s championship), would stop hiring for WWE women or women based only on looks, and hire her. The best I can hope for is that she would get added to ROH when they start their new women’s division but even then if your name isn’t Sara del Rey you wouldn’t get much TV time haha.

  • mariah.

    Lizzy has been on WWE’s radar for a while now though. Wasn’t she asked by some people in WWE and producers to go for Tough Enough but she decided to turn it down? Anyways I’m all for WWE giving indy girls the chance, since at this point TNA seems more interested in hiring former Divas instead of making their own stars. I’m hoping they’re looking at more girls on the circuit.

    • Marshy

      Lizzy has been on WWE’s radar and that radar can’t stop beeping than watching an episode of Comedy Central lineup of Comedians on a Friday Night and Kitchen Nightmares combine.Yes she did turn them down to be on Tough Enough. It is fact the matter is that WWE are giving indy women a chance.

  • Marshy

    Don’t be surprise in 2012 that things are starting looking quite UP for WWE. January one of the women have a recent tryout with AJ, while the other has film a WWE Commerical with Sheamus,so who knows what next month will bring and the following the month until it is 2013.

  • Marshy

    Since WWE has The Undertaker and Kane who portrays eerie scary guys than Why can’t WWE have the same for the women?

    • Raekon

      Because Vince mc Mahon and John Laurenaitis can only stand women that are looking good, shut their mouth while their cooking, cleaning and are good wifes to their man, while the males can be the “superstars” everyone is looking up to.

      Their mentality is stuck back to the americas 60s and alone for that I would like to slap them both silly. -.-

  • thejoshifanx

    Well WWE wants their women to look feminine. If a woman looks tough then the only role for her would be jobber to tell it like it is.

  • http://Yahoo.com/lilkhris141414@yahoo.com SEXYOFTHESEXIST2011

    if there’s god wwe hire buggy nova and Lizzy valentine they’ll make an a great addition to the wwe divas division
