Aloisia Pulled from NXT Due to ‘Erotic’ Photos?

Now former NXT Rookie Diva, Aloisia (real name Lindsay Hayward), was pulled from the new season of NXT due to ‘erotic’ photos of the 6’9″ wrestler surfacing online, reports via PWInsider.

The pictures are said to have been found online by WWE officials after Aloisia was introduced on last week’s episode of NXT as Vickie Guerrero’s rookie on the new season, due to begin tonight.

Presumably, the pictures would contradict WWE’s current PG stance as former CEO, Linda McMahon campaigns for senate in Connecticut. It seems that WWE is acting even more fervently on situations like this as McMahon recently won the Republican party endorsement, a big step in her campaign trail.

It should be noted that Hayward, who competed as Isis the Amazon on the independents, is still under a developmental contract, Diva Dirt can confirm.

The third season of NXT premieres tonight at 10pm on Syfy. Vickie Guerrero is expected to announce a new rookie to replace Aloisia in the competition.

    I was just gonna send u guys a link…… guess u guys beat me lol

  • Jack5326

    @GailKimFan09e: Yeah I sent Melanie it haha. :)

    Weird story and weird batch of people who’d like the photos I guess. I just hope Vickie’s rookie isn’t Chavo in drag or something stupid.

  • FCW Divas

    when is linda’s run over, everythig lately is about havin to becareful because of LInda, and everything, but i guess we rule out a run in by Aloisia, which kind of sucks, but o well i am still excited

  • gavin harvey

    well thats crap mostly all the divas have had a past in erotic pics :S
    like candice,trish,

    then mickie james had porn pics

  • Sasha

    I understand with Linda and the whole PG they have to be careful but I think it’s unfair. Mickie, Gail, Maryse, Tiffany and I’m sure their are others I can’t think of right now all did nude pics before WWE, in Gail’s case pre-WWE return. Didn’t Candice even do soft core fetish porn movies?

    I wish she were still on NXT, she was the most interesting, exciting thing to come along in awhile, still kinda hoping she will show up and give us a Diva rookie massacre ;)

  • shannymac

    Really?! I am seriously praying that Linda doesn’t win a senate seat. I am so tired of the double standards and stupid storylines that the PG era has produced. Also, doesn’t WWE do any research into the women they sign? Surely they could have figured this out before they put her on TV.

    “But, but…was she nekkid tho?” – Damon’s (my friend) comment after learning about Halle Berry’s “breasts shot” in Swordfish

    Lindsey/Isis/Aloisia has “erotic” photos that leaked out — that doesn’t sound right. But, yeah. Were they recent photos? Why do I ask? Maryse’s old Playboy shoot was recently resurrected on the Cyber Club. And Maryse was correct when she said that Playboy can do what they want with them (*shutter*). However, Maryse is still employed at Ole’ WWE. Perhaps Lindsey/Isis/Aloisia wasn’t forthcoming (yikes!) with the existence of the photos.

  • mr_socko

    Linda McMahon is STILL campaigning for a senate seat? It seems like this “campaign” has been going on for years now. Someone put me out of my misery and tell me when the elections take place so that it will be over??!

    As for the Aloisia porn…. she’s pretty much just the new Nicole Bass in every respect!

  • wl75

    I think this is a case of Occam’s Razor- the simplest explanation is probably the right one. In this case, the simplest explanation is that Aloisia is too green, and they sent her back to FCW to get more seasoning- they were afraid because of her size and the fact she would have been working with people with limited experience that she would accidentally hurt herself or one other others.

  • TommyStarstruck

    Yeah, it seems really bizarre to me that she gets in trouble for these pictures when so many other Divas have had nude photos of them online- but it’s WWE so there’s no equality for all wrestlers. It is what it is- hopefully she’ll do a run in on the finale or during the NXT3 winner’s first match / championship match.

    @ mr_socko I can kind of see the similarities between her and Nicole Bass, but Isis/Aloisia can actually wrestle. Nicole Bass just learned how to do a couple of moves, whereas Aloisia actually has more ability in my opinion.

  • TommyStarstruck

    and with the “limited experience” shtick, I can hardly believe it.

    I understand they may need to teach her the “WWE way” of wrestling, but honestly there’s women on NXT3 that are greener than Isis/Aloisia. I believe that to be moreso of a cover-up. They should have signed her months ago, rather than a few days before NXT3 cast was revealed… if her being “too green” was the case.

  • Ana_Nattie_rules

    I honestly think this might be just a rumor. Half, if not most of the Divas have done some “obscure” photoshoots in the past, some of then even for the WWE itself. It wasn’t that long ago that WWE had the Divas doing shoots in skanky lingerie.

    She’s probably just green in the ring or they decided to do a better angle with her.

  • Kaledrina

    it’s a shame, but understandable, i guess.

    i do wonder what will happen when/if linda does become senator? will things be even more tight, or will wwe go back to how they used to be?

  • Ryan1919

    It’s not even a big deal she just did some shoots with a fetish site so they’re essentially just photos of her beating the crap out of some scrawny dude. She has never posed nude that’s why they’re calling them erotic photos and not nude photos. I’ve seen the pics when I was looking up Isis the Amazon on google a while back but even then they’re not easy to find, I found her photos on accident

  • Ryan1919

    Well, they said there were nude pics so nevermind, But I’m guessing since they haven’t fired her yet then they think that maybe there is a chance to get the pictures taken down.

  • NT86

    A lot of people are assuming that if Linda McMahon loses the election (November 2nd I think) WWE will automatically get rid of the PG rating. WWE went PG a whole year before Linda stood for the Senate. The fact is that the rating has allowed the WWE to get better sponsorship deals with companies who wouldn’t touch them when they were an adult product. Kids buy the merchandise and looking at it recent finances, has been at its most profitable in years.

    Vince is a businessman at the end of the day. Making money is a priority.

  • ChaCha

    The pictures are…interesting to say the least.

  • mva85

    Well in that case let’s just hope Linda loses.

  • FCW Divas

    how do you get a pciture of a diva on your profile thingy, i really want one but i cant seem to get one ,

  • layglamacool

    Ew who would want to see her naked, im just saying.

  • TheWWEUberfan

    To all of you talking about Divas who had nude photosbefore to their WWE days, for one, most of the names you bring up had debuted prior to the switch to the PG rating. They’d been way too over with the crowd to be snatched off of TV due to some raunchy pictures (& movies CANDICE!) they’d done and likely forgot about at a younger age. That’s one reason as well as the fact that again, the names you pointed out, their characters were presented as sex symbols/sex kittens and so forth. So its was nothing bad.

    Now back on topic…ROTFLMMFAO. I howled while reading this. That’s why you never do stuff like this or it WILL come back to haunt you in your future endeavors. But you know what? I’m SURE when signing that contract with WWE, they ask you if you have done any pornographic type of material in the past. She probably lied. Which led to them going to see for themselves. Which led to this punishment.

    This is interesting news, particularly in light of something I heard last night. A friend of mine works for Richard Blumenthal’s campaign, the guy who’s running against Linda McMahon. Apparently, he overheard someone higher up in the campaign discussing this Aloisia situation and from the tone of the conversation, it appeared to him that they had already been in contact with her and were planning to somehow incorporate her into their campaign. One of Blumenthal’s key issues is equality for women in the workplace and if nothing else, this situation illustrates how WWE holds their female talent to a different standard than their male talent. It also indicates that Aloisia’s release was obviously politically motivated. Linda McMahon is basically saying she should be elected because she knows how to run a business, but the way they’re handling this makes her look less like a CEO and more like just another manipulative politician.

    › o__o to be honest, if that’s true, i don’t even want to imagine … moving on. if that’s so, that’s really messed up – it’s almost as if it was a hater just waiting in the shadows for her to get close to being a star, then suddenly “leaking” photos for her to fall back to the trenches. tsk, tsk, tsk. laycool said it best … jealousy is such an ugly disease.

  • Manda

    Starbuck… she was never released, she’s still in FCW and I highly doubt she would get herself blacklisted like that just by being part of some guys senator campaign for a month or two.
