As reported on Monday, Isis the Amazon — real name Lindsay Hayward — was backstage at both of this week’s Impact tapings and was due to debut for TNA, however, the one-time WWE NXT rookie ended up not being used on either taping.
A TNA source tells me that 6’9″-tall Isis was due to be unveiled as Kurt Angle’s mystery mistress but lost the role to a former WWE star (not named here to avoid spoilers) who had ‘unexpectedly’ turned up. However, I was told that the former WWE star had been in negotiations for some weeks.
I’m told Isis is due to attend the next taping, which is the May 15th pay per view in Orlando, but whether she’ll be used on the show remains to be seen.
Thoughts: There seems to be some contentiousness here. I can’t help but wonder if Isis was brought in as a back-up in case the WWE star flaked out? I guess we’ll see if TNA comes up with another role for her at the next taping.
