Debuts.....Feminine Flashbacks

I've given my top 5 TNA debuts, but I never gave my top 5 Knockouts Debuts. That category is more specific as the Knockouts Division is still newer than the World Heavyweight Title scene. Just like before, there is some definite trivia to go along with my picks and there was certainly fanfare for each of my picks. SO....in no particular order.......

1. Tara......

In the weeks before her debut, she had made the decision to retire from wrestling as her television time had gone down faster than the Diva's Division's credibility. WWE had put her in a role to put over the typical models and Barbie dolls they have come to employ now. She was sick of the games. Hence her arrival.

2. Mickie James.......



Without using the same story, Mickie James was actually released in spring cleaning before her arrival in TNA last year. She was quite possibly the most shocking release WWE made that year. What can I say? Their loss has been our gain.

3. Gail Kim.......


Her first appearance in TNA gave the Knockouts Division undeniable credibility. Her becoming the first Knockouts Champion made her undisputed, having won the top title in BOTH top wrestling companies the world over.

4. Taylor Wilde......


When Taylor Wilde arrived in TNA, Awesome Kong had been in the middle of an undefeated streak and, in nearly Kurt Angle tactics, she broke the streak and made herself a force to be reckoned with. Unfortunately for wrestling fans, Taylor made her impact and before the riggers cut her livelihood short, she retired to pursue further education and settling down.

5. Roxxi Laveaux......


Why her? Because she was TNA's hardcore Knockout. Sure Daffney was there, but Roxxi not only came first, but she was a TNA original Knockout. TNA should have given more credibility to the only woman to shave her head for the sake of a TNA storyline. It'd be nice to have her back.
