It's been stated that the Vice President of Talent Relations, Bruce Prichard doesn't have a taste for women's wrestling, hence TNA's decline in their emphasis on the Knockouts Division. As a result, Knockouts like Angelina Love, Winter, etc. have distanced themselves from TNA. To remedy this problem, TNA's fans need to rally for the return of TNA to their high quality of women's division storylines.....if they can do that, feds like SHIMMER will look to THEM for their model of how to do things with their own organization and TNA SHOULD be the ones setting the standard as they have since the Knockouts Divisions' inception.
My advice? Write to TNA on Facebook or on their website and DEMAND for them to reinstate and renovate the Knockouts Division. If TNA has no greater virtue, it's that they listen to the fans and the more voices, the louder the impact.
I, for one, would love to hail the return of Velvet Sky, Angelina Love, Awesome Kong, Winter, Traci Brooks, Salinas, and to welcome Taeler Hendrix and future debuting Knockouts to throw down the gauntlet and set the bar. Gail Kim, Mickie James, Tara, Madison Rayne, and even Tessmacher are the benchmark, but folks, let's be blunt....TNA can do better.....they've DONE better.
I plan on sending this very post to TNA and I encourage everyone in earshot to do the same.....
