Taylor Wilde Takes Shot At WWE Divas, "Beautiful People" Grace Magazine Cover
— Pro Wrestling Illustrated will be releasing an issue similar to the “PWI 500,” but based on the women of professional wrestling instead. They’re calling it the first annual “PWI Female 50,” which ranks the top 50 women’s wrestlers. PWI feels there is enough credible women’s wrestlers out there now to warrant a top 50 ranking. Michelle McCool, Beth Phoenix, Awesome Kong, with “The Beautiful People” – Angelina Love and Velvet Sky – in the front, grace the magazine cover. You can see the magazine cover at www.PWI-Online.com. The issue is scheduled to hit newsstands on Tuesday, September 23. No word yet on who landed the coveted number one spot.
— The latest issue of The Wrestler/Inside Wrestling has an article on reigning TNA Women’s Knockout Champion Taylor Wilde. Wilde talks about her wrestling career and gives insight on why WWE’s women’s division is so much different than TNA’s. “The WWE developmental system has changed women’s wrestling for WWE,” the TNA Women’s Knockout Champion said. “The first thing that comes to mind when you think of TNA women’s wrestling is diversity. Knockouts have so many different flavors of girls – short, tall, different weight classes, and racial backgrounds. And it makes for much more of an interesting division, wrestling aside. WWE has come to a point where they have a lot of models, and they’re clean-cut and cookie cutter-esque. There are only a few girls in developmental, and you can’t work outside your territory. Their ability to get experience outside of five girls is lacking. Everyone picks up the same skills and it all goes back to diversity. TNA Knockouts are girls I’ve seen travel the world and have a lot of experience, and it shows in the ring.”
— Traci Brooks and Matt Morgan will be appearing at the “Blood Sweat and Ears” event in Timmins, Ontario, on Saturday, November 8. For more information on the event, visit BloodSweatAndEars.com.
