Our Two Cents
Batting for Team DD this week, it’s Bobby giving us his personal opinion on this week’s topic:
Bobby | It’s hard for me to pick one certain thing I am thankful for in wrestling because I am thankful that we get to see them all perform to their best abilities, however, I must say that…wait a second, this isn’t challenging at all. I am thankful for the one and only, Miss Karen Jarrett! Now, before everyone begins to think this will fall in line with my write-up’s, hear me out. I was struggling to continue watching the Knockouts solely because of the fact the hot potato Winter/Mickie title games, but all it took was one Miss Karen segment, and I was immediately drawn back for good. She is what I deem my savior to Impact because without her, I’m not sure if I would’ve come back to it, and judging from some of the great matches we’ve seen in the past few months, I would’ve definitely been missing out. I deem that we all stand up and give a toast to one of the greatest females in the world, Miss Karen Jarrett!
Your Two Cents
|Charlie Flickinger | I’m thankful for women like Mickie James, Sarita, Sara Del Rey, Molly Holly, Tara, Beth Phoenix, Nikki Roxx, Natalya, Jessicka Havok and AJ Lee. Women who have proved you don’t have to be stick thin, with huge boobs and blonde hair to be successful.|
|Clinton Bowman | Quite thankful for the most over Diva who isn’t a Diva, Vickie Guerrero. She brightens my Monday (and sometime Friday) nights in glorious fashion. Wrestling without her just wouldn’t make sense.|
|Joshua Ruth | I’m thankful for WWE hiring more women with past experience. Tenille, Kira, Ivelisse, Britani, Irena, and most of all Kong. Hopefully this continues on into next year!|
|Josue Guzman | Thankful for Gail Kim‘s shoot interview. Her departure from WWE has caused a lot of controversy but at the same time it really opened up my eyes on how WWE treat their female talent. Not allowing them to out stage the men, 1-2 minutes matches, retiring the Women’s title, sudden releases, not hiring talent because they don’t have “the right look” and the list goes on. I’ve lost a lot of respect for WWE and now rather watch the Indies.|
|@MeaganG1990 | The moment that I am most thankful for is Velvet Sky finally winning the Knockouts Championship. A lot of her fans, including myself. We have waited for four years for Velvet to finally get the title and all of her fans finally said “FINALLY” as soon as she won it. Though while she is not the champion anymore, I am still thankful and grateful that I have seen my favorite Knockout finally win the title.|
|Trevor Stewart | I’m thankful for Kharma coming to WWE lighting a fire under the Diva’s division…although it was only for a short time. And if it wasn’t for her her coming, then leaving, then the Pin Up strong movement may not have happened.|
And now we turn it over to you…
