Not going to get into too much, but I had the chance to interview former NXT rookie Aloisia last night. It wasn’t really an interview, more like a “mini” interview I guess. The total time is about 4 minutes.

We talk about her time with NXT, the Rookies, future projects, etc.

UPDATE: Audio player isn’t working.. so, I’ll link to my blog, by clicking below, you can listen.

Oct. 11, 2010 – RAW Revelations: A Brutal Beatdown

12 10 2010

I think tonight, all of the Divas on the roster are actually used. Although, there wasn’t actually a real match. Figures. Here are your Raw Revelations.

Ted DiBiase w/ Maryse vs. R-Truth w/ Eve

Maryse and Ted Dibiase are already in the ring, Eve comes out and dance down to the ring.

Quick Note: Is anyone else sick of Eve dancing? I mean.. I love her, but I find it extremely annoying.

The match starts and R-Truth blows by Ted, Truth fights back, avoids a couple of attacks and hits a leg lariat for 2. DiBiase fights out of a headlock and hits a clothesline before going on the attack with rights for a 1 count. Stiff kick to the ribs. DiBiase doesn’t have his Million Dollar Championship tonight. A back breaker gets 2 for DiBiase, but he runs into a boot by Truth in the corner. Couple of clotheslines by Truth, followed up by a snap powerslam for 2. Sitout suplex gets 2 for Truth. Truth comes off the ropes into a spinebuster from DiBiase for 2. Ted sets for Dream Street but here’s Golddust and Aksana. Truth gets a roll up for 2! The Lie Detector connects and it’s over!

Jim Ross on Women’s Wrestling

12 10 2010

Last night on Twitter, former WWE commentator Jim Ross spoke a few words about the Women of Wrestling and Tag-Teams.

Are women in wrestling important components in the process? Seems like ‘not really’ unfortunately. Doesn’t have 2 be that way.

He is absolutely right. Atleast he (being a WWE Hall of Famer) notes how women get treated in the business. He also replied to a couple of fans saying the following:

While the perception of Divas is low, tag team wrestling is running a close second.

Heard of Shimmer but haven’t watched any of it. My point is that women wrestling can have more equity than it currently carries.

So what does the TNA rtg do with their women, go from a 1.3 to a 1.4? Most women’s bouts are unfortunately deemed as filler.

Nattie Neidhart is one of my favorite in ring talents. I’d love to see her in a physical 10-15 min match.

He ends his night on Twitter with this note:

Here’s the pt, tv wrestling would be more fun to watch if the women & tag teams meant more. Its doable. What about that do some not ‘get?’

It’s good to see that people are actually acknowledging the fact that the women in WWE need to be treated better.

TNA has themselves a new temporary knockout! Sources over at TMZ.com say that JWoww (Jenni Farley)  from MTV’s hit TV show, Jersey Shore, just signed a one-night deal to appear on “TNA iMPACT!” this Thursday.

She doesn’t have a match scheduled, but she’ll most likely be getting involved with Robbie E. and Cookie.

Not only is she coming to TNA, she is also getting payed big bucks for it. $15,000 dollars for the appearance! TMZ also says that “they are working out a deal to get her to come back to the show”.
