OVW Write-Up (August 15th, 2013): The Miss OVW Contest Returns

OVW fans, I have good news and bad news. Let’s go with the bad news first, shall we?

The bad news is this is the second week in a row without a women’s match. The good news is the segment taking place on this week’s show plants the seeds for the weeks ahead.

Watch the segment below and see for yourself:

Commentator Dean Hill invites the ladies of OVW to the ring and announces the return of the Miss OVW contest. Leading up to October’s Saturday Night Special, the ladies of OVW will compete in a variety of contests, such as a tug of war (groan) or a bikini contest (double groan).

Trina interrupts Hill, telling him that she has bigger business to deal with: her issue with Lei’D Tapa.

Taeler Hendrix then commandeers the microphone to tell them that the only person that matters here is her – the Queen of OVW.

This starts a tussle between all the women, leading to Trina laying out Lei’D with a DDT. It all goes to pot from there, as some random guy I’m not going to pretend to know comes to the ring and ushers in his own segment.

Thoughts: I can’t lie – the idea of a Miss OVW contest filled with Diva Search-like pointless competitions has me rolling my eyes. I’d much rather have a tournament to crown a Miss OVW in which the women, you know, wrestle.

I’m sure this whole contest is meant to build Taeler Hendrix while Trina and Lei’D Tapa have their title feud. As long as the weekly contests aren’t the extent of the women’s segments and we get actual wrestling in addition to them, I can deal with it. If not, I can only wonder what OVW thinks they’ll be accomplishing with this.

    who is blonde girl?

    • Peace

      The one with short hair who came out second? That’s what I was wondering.

      • Kaitlyn.Lover<3

        Me too LOL I think I never saw her, but I´m just watching a month ago.

        • Peace

          I’ve been watching for a couple months and I don’t recognize her. They had a segment a couple weeks ago with every girl in OVW and she wasn’t there, so I’m confused. Then again, this was supposed to be every girl too but there were at least 2 girls missing from what I could tell.

    • RayVolution

      that blonde girl is OVW Class of 2013 Graduate Rachel Kelvington, shes the only female graduate actually

      • BorisG

        I think it’s Jessie Belle.

    • shameronstar

      Between her, Envy, and the Rosie Lottalove look alike I’m trying to figure out where these women come from!

      • Matty Ryan

        I know! I was missing my Envy! The ‘Rosie Lottalove’ look alike is Lovely Lylah or Lylah Lodge, what ever she goes by that week.

    • BorisG

      If you mean the one with long hair, Jessie Belle

  • I dig CrayJ

    Back in the day OVW had talent like Serena Deeb,Katie Lea Burnchill,Beth Phoenix,Jillian Hall,Mickie James even ODB and now its a bunch of cheesy semi-talented girls apart from the Blossoms and Taeler.

    • JillianHallTNA

      I think that Heidi has improved a lot but others are just very bad :// I know OVW is like a wrestling school more than an indy promotion, but you gotta have some people who could ACTUALLY wrestle, while others do dark matches who are still not good enough

      • I dig CrayJ

        I like Heidi as well maybe St. John too but other than that it’s terrible.Tapa is like Curtis Axel,they push her so hard while she sucks.They must sign OVW originals Winter and Jillian as well as Ivelisse and Nicole Matthews!

        • JillianHallTNA

          Nikki should remove her glasses next time when she starts to wrestle, she had her glasses during half of the battle royal match and that made her so sloppy cause she was trying to be careful with them, instead to just remove her while entering the arena. Agreed, they should bring Ivelisse to OVW just like they did with Taryn Terrell as a part of TNA, but if Ivelisse doesn’t have anything with TNA anymore, still she would save the show as a indy OVW star! I imagine some great storylines with Blossoms, Taeler and Heidi :D

          • I dig CrayJ

            She may come out and say ”I’m here to show you what wrestling really means you pathetic little b!tches!” :D

  • Kaitlyn.Lover<3

    Ok I don´t know how to descrive this segment, it was…weird!
    Seriously, I´m not really excited to see the girls every week in bikini contests and “talent” competitions! They should be fighting and coming out for the championship!
    And after they started brawling, the segment just got very awkward, specially after Trina´s DDT to Tapa, I mean, Tapa got KO´ed, WTF!
    I just started to watch OVW like a month ago, and I´m doing an effort to watch every week, and I do an effort to like it, but it is hard because what is given to us is not consistent and isnt good! I mean, after Heidi Lovelace winning the battle royal, she disappeared and probably we will have to forget that she is the 1# contender for the tile!
    Most of the girls are very bland, generic and trash looking, and its hard to get into them!
    I would just like to see a real feud for the title, something that we could see that they invested in it!

    • Peace

      I believe Heidi already had her match at their saturday night special thing. I don’t know where she is now though.

      • Kaitlyn.Lover<3

        Oh yeah I forgot. Since we can´t watch the Saturday Special (unless you order the DVD), I did not even remember it happened.
        But they truly need to start doing something with the title, and not just name a #1 contender a week beforeSaturday Specials!

        • Peace

          From what I’ve gathered, it’s how OVW women’s division has been running for a long time. They just throw the title around and see what sticks.
          On the plus side, they HAVE been building up the Tapa tour of destruction for a long time and they’ve recently started to put her in a feud with Trina. So yeah, they do have a championship storyline, it’s just being overshadowed by this silly contest. xD

          • Kaitlyn.Lover<3

            Yep, I know that have been building it. But they have not been consistent with it! Even last week they did not even appear, what a way to build the champion and the chaser!

          • Peace

            True. OVW just suck with storylines, I guess. I can never keep up with what the hell they’re doing in ANY of their storylines. xD

  • RayVolution

    Now come on guys, its been a LONG time since a Miss OVW Bikini Contest happened in OVW,, lighten up, it would be fun :D Besides, the girls showing off their sexy side in a segment shouldn’t hurt once in a while……well this is once in a while, because name me a time they actually did? Nope, that it never happened or I missed it, meh *KanyeShrug*

    I have to agree with KaitlynLover there about the awkwardness of the segment around the ending, where Lei’D Tapa is suddenly knocked out from a DDT? Now, while it is nice to see her not dominating at this one point in their feud, I feel however that it was executed poorly, having her knocked out from a small move from Trina was not very good in a creative sense, I’d rather see her just get suddenly one upped by Trina, while still moving and going all “WHAT?!?!”, but knocked out? Nah, it looks bad on both ladies parts. Oh well……OVWLogic e_e

    Also that new blond girl, I’ll say once again if nobody bothered to freaking scroll down to see me answer this, is Rachel Kelvington. Shes a recent Graduate of the OVW Training School, and from the looks of this picture, the ONLY female graduate (so that probably is her name lol xD)

    • Matty Ryan

      YIKES!

  • shameronstar

    Ok, what was that! Yikes:)

  • carlos

    Im sorry but lei’d tapa just is bad she’s not intimidating at all and the ovw womens roster besides the blossoms and nikki are just horrible

  • JillianHallTNA

    WTF OVW! You could made a wrestling tournament to crowd Miss OVW and get a crown, but that would be soooo FCW, but still better than whatever this is… hopefully they could cut some interesting promo, I know that Taeler is the only great mic talker, so please Taeler, SAVE us by talking something funny and interesting, maybe dissing other competitors, but not in a PG way, but in a BITCHY way with Envy :D

  • JillianHallTNA

    Also shoutout to Jessie Belle’s ring attire! :D

  • Chad

    Trina is useless. worst wrestler EVER

  • charovnica

    If OVW is a preview of what the Knockout division is going to turn in…I’d rather have TNA bankrupt before most of these make it to the main roster.

  • zleydig

    The chick in the yellow, Jessie Belle I think, is awful. She wrestled a triple threat against MIckie James and Reby Sky at a Big Time Wrestling event I attended recently. It hurt my soul to watch her. I’d rather relive the Terri Runnels-Miss Kitty feud.

  • drunkendramaqueen

    Once again I was distracted by Taeler Hendrix’s tragically advised choice of figure hugging attire.

    With the exception of the Blossom twins, none of these women can work.
