Two thirds of The Beautiful People were interviewed by Phil Strum of the Poughkeepsie Journal, who maintains his own blog called Under the Ring. The original two thirds, Angelina Love and Velvet Sky talk about the addition of Madison Rayne and more.
On Rayne, Sky dishes:
Madison’s really come into her own. At first, we were kind of like, ‘do we really need a third girl with us?’ We were kind of both skeptical about it, but she’s really come into her own and she’s adjusted and fit in well with us, so we’re happy to have her.
I have to be honest here, I’ve been following TNA a lot more in recent weeks and I don’t see how she’s ‘adjusted and fits in well’. I don’t think it’s through any fault of her own either. She really does feel like the less important third wheel and doesn’t feel part of the team. TV shows make a lot of casting changes that don’t just seem to fit & attempt to fix what ain’t broke, but I’m not feeling Rayne as part of the Beautiful People.
Part of the reason why is they haven’t really done anything with her since joining the team. Where’s the team dynamics? I think they should start planting the seeds for feuds and in-fighting, I could definitely see Madison and Velvet fighting to gain the ear/attention of the Knockouts Champion, Angelina. This group needs some interesting dynamic within it.
