    Great audio!!!

  • BobAnthony

    Alison Danger is fun, feisty and wow she has OPINIONS! No wonder she is on the broadcast team with SHIMMER. She would even make a great talk radio host.

    It’s a shame K-Nox is done, she’s probably one of the best there’s been in Shimmer imo. Great interview.

  • xxChristinaxx

    That was great.

    Great interview.

  • Bobby Lea Burchill

    That was one of the best interviews D-D’s ever done and I loved every second of it. Allison Danger is awesome all around, and I loved her interview with the Women of Wrestling Podcast earlier so I knew this would be no different. I’ve always felt Jessie McKay was made for WWE as well and I can’t believe she hasn’t signed with them yet, along with Tenille though Tenille is a bit newer so I see why there.

    I’m personally pulling for Mercedes or Melissa to be the next SHIMMER champ, which I’m happy Danger mentioned Mercedes as I don’t see her name tossed around much.

    Overall, a phenomenal interview that everyone and their mother should check out. It never gets boring, and good luck with Danger’s Dental Deeds! Hopefully a lot of people are able to make it to Illinois to donate.

  • The Crying Light

    Her talking about Knox made me want to cry. The first time I saw her, I thought: this girl can be so good a few years from now. Then, that injury came. Quite tragic, actually.

  • bxradimus

    Very, Very awesome interview! Danger has always been fun to listen to. She always seems to have a lot of interesting things to say.

    I’m bummed that I wont be able to make it to the next tapings. With all the joshi talent coming in and that hope that Melissa will maybe hopefully go after that Shimmer title finally, it’s definitely going to suck not being there.

  • jdcabltv

    tooo bad she didnt want to chat about her next match, at least i’m assuming , lol, next match w/PORTIA PEREZ…loved the new word she calls Portia…hmmm, what kind of match will porita perez and allison danger have? maybe a falls count anywhere match like Melissa had? what does anyone else think? :)

  • Gail Kim #1


    Did you just say you liked Eve?

    She’s a decent athlete, but she misses dropkicks and flips, Trish was way better at the same stage.

    HAMADA vs Del Ray was AMAZING! PLEASE PLEASE make one just as good!

  • Gail Kim #1

    Why was Gail Kim not mentioned? Totally underrated IMO by Steven..
    Not saying you think she’s bad but you’re always way too quick to say Kelly, Eve, McCool, Layla etc

    • http://www.diva-dirt.com Melanie

      The interview isn’t about Gail Kim or any of the other Divas for that matter, whoever is mentioned is merely coincidence. It’s not like in an interview with Allison Danger, who has no association with WWE, that we are going to work in the names of every single WWE Diva. I don’t know what you were expecting. And frankly, you are getting too worked up. Everyone knows Gail is a great wrestler, from the sounds of it they are talking about those girls like Kelly, Eve and Tiffany who are up and coming in that department. The fact Gail wasn’t mentioned is neither here nor there but that’s your answer — we all know Gail is great, the context they were talking in is about those younger girls.

      And as for your comments about Allison liking Eve. It’s extremely disrespectful to judge someone, especially a 10 year wrestling veteran, because she likes someone you don’t. So disrespectful.

  • Gail Kim #1

    *Not mentioned in WWE segment……

  • http://www.diva-dirt.com Erin

    Gail Kim #1 – Chill out. Not everyone’s opinions need to mirror yours.

  • Zephyr5326

    Awesome interview; I’ve only ever seen one segment of Shimmer and Alisson was commentating and I thought “Who is this woman? She’s awesome”, so when I was this interview, I knew it’d be entertaining. Allison was totally honest and I think she’s a pretty funny, down to earth woman. I know I’d love to hear her commentary more often too on a bigger scale, and now I know I have to check Shimmer out from now on. :)

  • Gail Kim #1

    @Melanie I didn’t judge Allison, I know she’s an amazing athlete and woman, especially with her charity work as mentioned at the end, I mean what can I say, WHAT A LEGEND comes into mind.

    And I’m sorry I was way too quick to comment halfway through.

    But still, I won’t water down my belief in Gail Kim or anything she does, always #1 for me.

  • RKOyou

    lol why can’t we ever have peace on diva dirt, everything has to always be misinterpreted into something offensive, Steven didn’t mention Gail kim so thats an insult now? oh come on, we’re not 5 years old. Diva dirt is not a place where you take your anger out. Everyone always wants their favorite diva to be mentioned in the spotlight but theirs not enough time in the day to do that

    nice audio though

  • jdcabltv

    I liked the interview myself…happy happy joy joy!!! LOL we all love different wrestlers, i’m gonna show my age by saying BETTY NICCOLI was the best woman in wrestling!!! lol

  • theregoeskitty

    Allison is very funny “shes was out with what she calls ‘the swine flu’ but i like to refer to it as ‘Pig Aids’ ” LMAO

    great interview!

  • Jamal

    Fantastic interview. I love Allison. It doesn’t hurt that she and I agree on a lot of points. LOL! I definintely see Jessie as the WWE type. She’s like a Maria that can actually wrestle. Like Allison said, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear about her being signed soon. I also agree that Madison Eagles is freakin’ awesome. I didn’t see her tag matches but I’ve seen her singles SHIMMER work and she is he next star, IMO. It would be great to see Allison book either TNA’s women or the WWE’s. It’s obvious that she’s intelligent and has some interesting ideas.

  • TrishMelinaFan

    Wow, what a good interview! I love Allison now, haha! :D
