A report in the Wrestling Observer newsletter last week suggested that a prime difference between the WWE Divas and TNA Knockouts was their match agenting. According to Dave Meltzer, the Knockouts’ matches are structured move-for-move by TNA agents while the Divas put together their own matches.
Speaking on The Krissy Vaine Project this past weekend, Krissy Vaine, a former WWE Diva and independent worker Rain, a former TNA Knockout discussed their experiences of how things work in the two companies.
On the show, which you can listen to by clicking here, Krissy explains that during her time in WWE, most of the matches were heavily agented, and there was always an agent present. Meanwhile, Rain who worked in TNA as Payton Banks said that she was able to wrestle freely without structured agenting.
It should be noted that it has been some time since Krissy or Rain have competed for WWE or TNA, so things could have changed but nonetheless, fans received a unique insight from two talents who have been there — contradictive of the report in the Observer.
Also on last week’s Krissy Vaine Project, Rain explained how the Knockouts wages worked in light of recent reports that some TNA Knockouts are unhappy with their pay.
