TNA Wrestling officials are interested in acquiring former WWE Superstars John Morrison and Melina as their names have come up in recent creative meetings.
Bruce Prichard, Senior Vice President of Programming and Talent Relations, is said to be a big proponent of the couple joining the organization.
Both talents have continued to compete at independent wrestling events since parting ways with WWE last year.
Now I never watched TNA but Impact Wrestling has had a number of nutty, unneeded signings in the past two years. From old maniac bookers like Hogan and Bischoff, to guys with histories of drug and alcohol problems like Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle, to their resident princess, Gail Kim.
John Morrison is a great development by WWE, bad on the mic, but very good in the ring and the type of guy that TNA should be scouting more.
While Melina has had a good in-ring history in WWE, she's had a long history of heat, as noted in this link right here.
That's a lot of crap, whether it's all real or not, it seems like the type of stuff she would say and do.
So Dixie, Terry, Eric, why are you interested in signing her? There are 3 Knockouts already she's had some bad blood with, Mickie, Angelina, and Brooke Tessmacher. What would signing her do? There are reasons why WWE released her in the first place. Everybody in the WWE was relieved when they no longer had to be around her.
They all probably felt relieve they no longer had to put up with Gail Kim too, and what has she done so far to help your company? I knew right when Gail left WWE like a crybaby that she would do no good for the Knockout division. You all are saying Brooke Hogan is gonna be a bad authority figure while she'll be harmless compared to Gail now. She is in every single Knockouts match, she gets the most time out of every woman, and she is going down every KO to defend a title that she didn't even work hard for. I thought TNA said they weren't about any ass-kissing.
You don't need Melina, or Kim for that matter. You got a closet full of Knockouts with decent talent whom are just dying to appear on TV and make a living. Winter, Angelina Love, ODB, Sarita, Rosita, Brooke Adams. Book THEM. Guaranteed talent, low cost, no BS. They deserve the time on TV. Show them they matter. Visit www.profightdb.com and check out these ladies' records. Many of them haven't won a match as early as July. None of these women have been any trouble at all. Melina has more animosity than all of them in one finger. You already know she's trouble, you already know she's gonna be expensive (ie: $5000 booking even though she denied it), and you already know there are other women on the roster in need of attention.
But do they seem to care at all? Doesn't look like it.
You see the Divas and you should know what they do. When a Knockout does an interview it's like a copy/paste response they all have to say in some fashion: they go right after the Divas and take cheap shots at them for their brief TV matches that the fans caused in the first place, but there's more to being a woman in the WWE than just that. They're all on tour, just like almost everybody currently in the WWE. They all get booked to compete, whether it would be a TV event, an internet show, or a house show, and they all get paid whether they appear or not. You don't see a Diva getting left off tour for months like TNA, unless they get injured or must take a leave of absence. No matter what roles they have, all of them they're still good assets to the WWE as long as they keep out of trouble.
But if this is true, Dixie, can't wait to see a Botchamania down the road and happen to witness Gail vs. Melina in a screaming contest for that title.
