TNA Knockout Added to WWE.com Alumni

Christy Hemme is the latest former Diva to be added to WWE.com’s Alumni section.

The inaugural Diva Search winner and current TNA Knockout is described in her bio as a “spitfire”, a “firecracker” and “dynamic”. The bio describes her WWE run, from her Diva Search win in 2004 to her release in 2005.

It’s a tribute to Christy’s memorability that she earned recognition from the WWE despite having such a short tenure.

Christy currently works for TNA as their ring announcer. She retired from in-ring competition in 2009 following a neck injury.

    Heehee @MattyRyan you were right!

  • shamaramill

    I find this funny.

  • I dig CrayJ

    Good for her.

  • OH SNAP!

    Only thing I liked about her time in the wwe was her entrance song and video. And that Trish wrote slut on her back. Wish wwe kept her and gave her a chance..

  • Matty Ryan

    My favorite moment is….her whole career.

    I leaked it first.

  • I dig CrayJ

    My favourite moments were all the segments with Trish and her mini-feud with Victoria.

  • OJ Von Erich

    I absolutely adored Christy’s time in WWE, she had SO much potential.

    Although she got a better run in TNA… I’m still bitter about her retiring injury though, she was set to win the title from Kong!!! :’(

    • I dig CrayJ

      She definately deserved to become KO’s champion once!Her,Roxxi,Sarita,Traci Brooks,Jackie and Raisha Saeed/Alissa Flash were the KO’s that deserved the title the most,and didn’t get it :(

  • Rebecca Blackett

    I wish Christy had a longer WWE run, she had potintial.

  • XavierSkyy

    I don’t think it’s fair that Christy made it to the alumni before Ashley. Even though she didn’t really make an impact, she was in WWE longer than Christy, and never jumped ship.

    • OJ Von Erich

      Christy was in WWE before though & was the 1 EVER Diva Search winner!

      Plus she never jumped ship, she was mysteriously released!

      • XavierSkyy

        When I say jumped shop I mean after she got released she went to WWE’s rival company and took several shots at the Diva’s. Ashley had more success in WWE than Christy (not much tho.)

        • Gail-Trish-Brooke

          So you just expect released talents to never work again, or go get some office job?

          And Christy had a Womens Title match at Wrestlemania with Trish Stratus. That beats anything Ashley ever did.

          • BorisG

            Ashley had 2 Wrestlemania matches, and one was for the Women’s Championship against Melina, which was the last WM with Women’s title defended on it. Ashley was in storylines such as: She & Trish vs Vince’s Devils, she vs Mickie, vs Jillian, vs Melina. She managed London & Kendrick and was longer in company. Enough?

          • Gail-Trish-Brooke

            No, that’s not enough.

            Wrestlemania match with Trish Stratus (with Lita in her corner) >>>>> everything you mentioned. Especially considering how early in her career it was. The fact that Ashley was around longer is irrelevant to the impact she had. Case in point: Kharma.

          • BorisG

            Just because she faced Trish, she made more impact? Division was small those days as they had Trish, Victoria, Molly, Stacy (part time wrestler) and Christy. Lita was injured, so they decided to go with Christy, and she was current Playboy covergirl, and we all know they get a WM match: Candice, Ashley, Torrie, Maria, Sable, Chyna.

          • XavierSkyy

            “Never work again” Is TNA the only other wrestling promotion? No, there’s ROH, Shimmer, and plenty other promotions that pay probably better than TNA does.

            Also, are you forgetting Ashley had TWO Wrestlemania matches, and one of them was for the Women’s Championship? Plenty of storylines, and she was in WWE longer than Christy was. And before you try and say Christy’s match was better than both of Ashley’s, they both blew. Christy actually started getting booed for how bad she was sucking. At least Ashley wasn’t getting booed.

            Now between the two, Christy has definitely come farther, and showed how talented she actually is in the wrestling world. But, from a non-bias look at both of their WWE Careers, Ashley made a bigger impact. (Even though neither really made an impact and are more forgettable than most diva’s)

            It really just seems like you personally like Christy more than Ashley.

  • Christopher Bello

    Christy was so fabulous. Given enough time she most certainly would’ve surpassed her Diva Search peers as an overall worker. Her charisma was insane, and her ring work could’ve been top-notch! Such a shame she was let go.

  • xUltimateBarbie

    I’m hoping Ashley & Gail get a WWE.com profile soon too. And, I LOVE the gallery we get when someone gets a new profile. So many great shots!

    • Gail-Trish-Brooke

      I doubt we will ever see Gail get on the alumni page. Unless they put her up just to try and take some of the credit for her career. Which they deserve none of.

      • xUltimateBarbie

        Yes but she did win the Women’s Championship in her debut match. (I believe) so she most likely will be put in it some day.

        • http://myworld.ebay.com/ferociouscougar 09DHK

          Maybe once Vince and Johnny Ace are gone; MAYBE. But then again, there are supposedly talks about inducting Chyna into next year’s HOF, so anything’s possible I suppose.

  • Guest

    *shots.

  • PrinceArtie

    I’ve picked every single diva search winner & i was a massive fan of christy..she could have really improved had vince actually liked her….

  • divasvsknockouts

    What about gail, ashley, tara, mickie, tiffany, lena yada, brooke, melina, jillian, winter, serena?

    • CJ

      Gail: self explanatory
      Ashley: I can see her being added eventually, but for right now lets pretend she never existed
      Lena,brooke,winter,serena: didnt make an impact
      The rest are already in with their WWE name

      • BorisG

        I can see Katie Lea make it. Maybe Joy Giovanni, Kristal, Miss Jackie, Nidia, Shaniqua.

        • divasvsknockouts

          I agree with miss jackie and winter but the rest did not make much of an impact.

      • divasvsknockouts

        True said so no serena, brooke or lena. Lena n brooke were ecw girls.

  • divasvsknockouts

    I wonder how tna is going to react to this?

    • Gail-Trish-Brooke

      Lol newb.

      • Guest

        Whats a newb?

      • divasvsknockouts

        Lol. Im new at this but trust me I know my wrestling inside and out.

  • http://myworld.ebay.com/ferociouscougar 09DHK

    Random thought, but if the stories of TNA’s financial issues are true, I wouldn’t be surprised if WWE eventually bought out TNA.

    • charovnica

      I hope not.I actually really hope TNA would overcome those tough times,cause both companies do better when they have some sort of competition.

  • BorisG

    I don’t understand why they say neck injury ended her career. It didn’t. Christy was supposed to face Kong at Genesis 2009 (January) and win KO title. She was injured while training with AJ Styles. She took couple of months and returned in July. Then she wrestled until December, when she felt uncomfortable and retired.
