  1. Some of you probably don't know, but i have recently started professional wrestling training just early this month, it was recently just a 30 day trial to see if i wanted to continue and i must say, it pretty much sucks (I am still not comfortable doing back bumps, and my cardio sucks balls), but i do plan on going back, hopefully in July, so at the moment i am saving up for the actually training.   So anyway, at the end of my last session, my trainer sat down with me, and was asking me if i wanted to continue, and what i plan on doing in wrestling. I clearly told him that i wanted to be the best, and i wanted to stand out as much as possible. I wanted to be the either the next Taker, Ric Flair, The Rock, Trish, Lita, Kurt Angle, Mickie, Melina ect. I refuse to be just that Black girl in the ring, I refuse to be the angry black girl, i refuse to be a hoe with a pimp, be some dancer ( I can't dance), or be a black girl who happens to be jealous of some white girl. I want to be the best, the best that has ever been, i want to be unique as possible. He then tells me gimmicks are based on stereotypes, and that the only way for the crowd to react (mind you i live in racist ass Texas), i then responds by saying then want would be the point of me to be in wrestling, if i not in it to be the best or to make a difference.   He also tell me, that since I am a Black Women, i have to work 5 times harder. Mind you, my trainer has 15 years of experience and himself is also African/Black American. What he is saying is right, but honestly i really didn't need to him to tell me that all, shit I been a wrestling fan for 15 years. In mainstream women wrestling, there has only been 1 AA Divas champion, and only 2 AA to ever hold the Women's champion. How i would describe the wresting biz for black women, is how i will compare to the entertainment business. The only roles that we seem to have is to either a angry black women, a dancer, and the help.  Both Cameron and Naomi were dancers, and Alicia Fox was pretty much a token black girl with Team Bellas. Even though I been on Naomi ass about her constantly changing her gear style and hair color, no one cant deny that Naomi has try so hard  to get notice by the wwe officials to notice. And i honestly feel like WWE is never going to give her a chance. For the grammar mistake btw.  
  2. I would definitely pay to see this!    
  3. We're about a month into this "new era" and WWE keeps trying to hammer this point home (you can stop now, JBL) despite not giving us anything, really, to back this claim. But what do you think? Will this era we're witnessing be the greatest in women's wrestling history (surpassing the revered Golden Era) or will WWE's laziness, lack of creativity and institutionalized main roster sexism make it just like the rest, only with potentially better PPV matches? Discuss.

  5. On a recent episode of Jim Cornette's podcast the "Drive-Thru" a viewer wrote in asking his thoughts on some of the past WWE divas. I'll summarize what he had to say since you need to have VIP access in-order to listen.   Luna -  Once had a match with Luna at a house show that went on for nearly 20 minutes. The show was sold out and it was among the most fun he ever had out of the few matches where he actually wrestled.  Great worker, super athletic, had a genuine love for the wrestling business, and he loved being around her.    Jacqueline - Worked along side her in the Memphis territory, WWE, and TNA. His favorite era of hers was as "Miss Texas" during the mid 90s. She would regularly compete against men garnering huge pops from the crowd.    Ivory - Got her job by being a "Bumpin' Ho". At the time Jim was responsible for finding "enhancement talent" for the WWE and was told be needed to find a Ho for The Godfather who could take bumps asap. After going through some of his contacts he was referred to Ivory. She did such a great job and won everyone over that it eventually lead to WWE officially signing her. Great personality, looked tremendous, talented, etc.    Jazz - Excellent wrestler, most of the girls who came down to OVW were starting from scratch but Jazz already had experience. This naturally led her to become more of a mentor/veteran during her time down there.    Mickie James - The best girl in "every way" out of all the OVW alumni. Most experienced, best worker, and the best looking. Considers her to be one of the best in-ring female performers.    Jim also believes that all five women above have a place in some sort of wrestling hall of fame (didn't specifically say which one)    Linda Miles/Shaniqua - Described as being "pretty shitty". Unlike fellow Tough Enough contestant Nidia who worked very hard, Linda never really got the hang of things in the wrestling business. In 2004 after Linda was removed from WWE television she was sent down to OVW. Shortly after arriving in OVW she horribly botched a match with Jillian Hall which then got her removed from OVW television. After six months of having no OVW televised matches her big chance came when she got to challenge Mickie James, but 45 seconds into the match she dropped Mickie on her head nearly breaking her neck. The following day Linda quit.

  8. Most heartbreaking injury.

    Injuries have plagued the women of wrestling since the beginning of time and they have derailed the careers and momentum of females who were either at the top of the division or were poised to to become the top diva at a certain point in time. Candice Michelle and Christy Hemme suffered career ending injuries when both were at their peak in their respective companies. Lita suffered a near career ending injury in 2002 that kept her out of action for over a year and a half and during that time Trish Stratus had taken over the women's division that many thought Lita would be dominating. Various other girls gave suffered injuries and setbacks that weren't as serious but it still effected there careers, ring ability, pushes/title runs and longevity. My question to all if you is which injury do you as a fan find the most heartbreaking? Whether it is someone that you Stan for or just a particular situation that hit you right in your emotions.

  10. Since we can't edit our old posts, here's one from a year back that I didn't want to lose.  No big.  This one's a pleasure to re-post, especially since I can add stuff that wasn't in the original version.     11 years ago saw what many consider the greatest Wrestlemania Divas match, ever.  It's either that one or Trish vs Mickie at Wrestlemania 22.  But, the build-up for the Women's Championship match at Wrestlemania 19 was fantastic in itself.  It's really hard to imagine an over six month build to a Divas match at Wrestlemania, today.   WWE Creative needs to take a look at how it used to be done.  If they could pull this off then, there's no excuse for not being able to do it, now.   For one thing, it was built to in an unusual way for the Divas.  It was more about booking than writing.   There was no soap opera.  But, there was a story.  It was told almost entirely with a series of big matches, the Divas getting the characters and story across in the ring.     Part 1:  Three Championship Matches in Nine Days The previous Spring, Jazz was the Women's Champion, and feuding with the woman she won the title from, Trish Stratus.  To be sure she kept the title, Jazz partnered with Hardcore Champion Steven Richards, who was feuding with Bubba Ray Dudley.  Trish won the Hardcore Championship briefly in a melee after a Women's Championship match with Jazz.  Trish and Bubba formed a team to challenge Jazz and Richards, ultimately leading to Trish winning the Women's Championship in a Hardcore Rules match in Toronto.  After winning the title, Trish put Jazz through a table, putting her out of action.  We haven't seen Jazz, since. Richards, still Hardcore Champion, promised Jazz would be back in an interview with Terri Runnels, only to be challenged for the Hardcore title by Jacqueline Moore.      http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xkv7f5_bonus-video-terri-runnels-wins-the-hardcore-title-raw-5-27-02_sport     I do miss the Hardcore Championship...   The Summer and early Fall saw a feud between Trish and Molly for the Women's Championship, with Molly winning.  Molly brought in a protege, Victoria, to assist her in keeping her title.  This led to a showdown at Unforgiven.     September 22, 2002   http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4ja2i_trish-stratus-vs-molly-holly-unforg_shortfilms     September 23, 2002   http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x33xqp_trish-vs-molly-vs-victoria_news     September 30, 2002   http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1cqewh_stacy-keibler-bischoff-9-30-02_sport     Next:  No Mercy
