ODB is a former four-time TNA Knockouts Champion along with a one-time and the very last TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion and spent the majority of her career with the company.
Since leaving TNA in 2015, ODB has made several one-off appearances with IMPACT and also has worked matches with other promotions. She has done some work with ROH, NWA, and has made an appearance with AEW. With her still making appearances could she come back for one more run? After speaking with Wrestling Inc Daily she believes she could.
She had the following to say, “I wouldn’t mind another little run. It would be pretty badass for me to arrive in my food truck. That would actually be pretty good. AEW, I really like and the NWA, and obviously TNA will always be my home. I had a good time at NWA. All the guys I grew up with and worked with. That was a good time. It’s not like I have to wrestle every week. You get a little sore this time around than I have in the past.”
She also spoke about the times she has returned and how the Knockouts, especially Jordynne Grace and Taya Valkyrie were to work with. By acknowledging the history of the Knockouts division which she is part of she says how the newer group of women are very respectful about the company and the Knockouts that came before them. She last was seen at the Hard to Kill pay-per-view in a Three-way title match against then-champion Valkyrie and Grace. Valkyrie would retain.
“They can go. They are saying, ‘You should go up there and do this flip.’ I’m like, ‘When have you ever seen me go on the top rope?’ Let’s not do something I haven’t done in 20 years,” she said. “They’re just fearless. These girls can go. They’re probably 15 years younger than me. They all put on a great show. I wouldn’t mind getting back in the ring.”
ODB continues, “TNA built a great Knockouts division when we started in ’07. I think all the girls have been keeping it going, and they’re proud of it. That’s what I love to see when I go back. I love that all the girls are excited to be there. They’re family and all good girlfriends. I still talk to all the girls I worked with. They stick together and that’s cool. Nobody gets mad or jealous of each other. They are there for each other. That’s what I love to see the Knockouts division keep going like that.”
Also, she speaks on her time with NWA, Tessa Blanchard, and her on-screen partnership with Eric Young and if they could reunite. For the full interview, you can click here.
