6 things that tell me Angel Williams wants the WWE

Let me say this first and foremost, I do not have a obsession with Angel going WWE-bound, nor would I be super excited if she did. However, I can't help but notice there are some little hints and clues left by her and other people that could indicate that the WWE would be her next goal. I'm not saying that I'm being correct or anything, they look very strange and coincidental. Let me explain them one at a time:
Even though Kia has yet to wrestle in two matches in WWE, she's supposedly going to be part of some heavily hyped feuds this year. Going back to 2008 and 2009, her feud with The Beautiful People revolutionized the KO Division in TNA making Kharma Angel's biggest rival. Now with Kharma jumping ship to WWE and Angel stuck in TNA doing nothing, how could the rivalry possibly reignite?
When asked on Twitter from a fan if she misses working with Kharma, her response was, "Yes! Very much so!!". Not exactly sure how many exclamation points she included though. You'll likely find it if you did some digging.
Ric Flair and Ashley
Ric Flair was a WWE Legend that Angel has looked up to. She even set an extraneous career goal in a video interview stating that she was going to be a "16-time Knockouts Champion", as many times as Flair was a Top Champion.
However, WWE and TNA settled an agreement to have Flair appear for WWE again during the Four Horsemen's Hall of Fame induction. And shortly after that, Flair was released from TNA on some pretty sketchy terms.
During the final days of Ric Flair's tenure with TNA, it was reported that WWE has signed his daughter, Ashley Fliehr-Johnson to a developmental deal, potentially making her a WWE star in the future. Since Ric has been a big influence to Angel, what an honor it must be to get the chance to wrestle his daughter, oh whom will soon be WWE property and not TNA property.
Back in the days of OVW and DSW, Melina was known as a bully. In my second blog you will find a collection of Melina's heat and find a controversial excerpt Melina has typed mentioning Angel as well as Mickie James calling her a "slut".
There have been multiple instances within TNA's creative room of the idea of bringing in John Morrison and Melina.
As I recall, I don't know when Angel said this, but I think it was when she joined TNA, she said she was "happy she was in a company where women don't dance around and be arm candy to the men" or somewhere along those lines. While it seemed like she took a shot at the Divas, she could more specifically meant just Melina, since around that time Melina was "arm candy" to Johnny Nitro AKA Morrison and was doing some dancing and other theatrics in their entrance together.
If Melina and her still have some ongoing bad blood, it would make sense if this was a deciding factor for her to leave TNA to avoid any further issues, and to sign with WWE since Melina is no longer there.
The Tweets from her co-workers sending her off
From the tweets that were posted on this site a couple of days ago, I think I see what they all have in common here:
Velvet Sky: "Such a damn shame!! So much left to do there! I know you're gonna move on to big things bud, good luck and as always I love u!!"
Madison Rayne: "I'll miss seeing your beautiful face. I can't WAIT to see the awesome things you're about to accomplish though."
Devon: "God is with you girl, see you soon."
Tara: "Good luck @ActualALove! You will have success no matter where your journey takes you."
Traci Brooks: "No doubt Angelina Love was one of the best KOs (being canadian and all). I know she'll succeed at whatever lies ahead!"
Rosita: "I love Angel so much and it's gonna suck not being able to work with her and have the great times we have at work BUT I will see her elsewhere and she is such a beautiful and talented woman she will excel in ANYTHING she choses to do next!..."
It's not uncommon to say you wish someone well with what they want to do next in their lives. But with the way they're tweeting, it seems like they already know what she's going to do. Has she told the locker room what she wants to do next? Because what could be possibly "bigger" and "awesomer" than TNA?
But let me quote another part of Rosita's tweet:
"it's gonna suck not being able to work with her"
Gee, why not?! I thought TNA wrestlers were independent contractors so they could still work with her outside of TNA. Why can't she I wonder? Oh, because while signed to WWE, you aren't free to appear at any wrestling event you want. You can only appear for WWE...
TNA's "amicable" decision
I find it unusual for TNA to just allow their 5 time champion to just leave on "amicable" terms. So she's happy to be leaving and they're happy to release her. They're happy to allow her to go any place she wants, am I right? No lawsuit to constrict her, right?
Seems like it. She did provide an email address to her agent already ([email protected]), she's already booked for an event later this month, and uh...what was that other thing? Oh, right. She's no longer going by "Angelina Love", so she's no longer a TNA talent, she's a free agent. So there is likely no no-compete clause or any thing in their lawsuit from TNA that would stop her from getting to "the bigger picture" without WWE getting in trouble.
So if she told the locker room she wants to go to the WWE, did she tell Dixie and other executives too?
Tara's tease from this week's Impact
On the 7/5/12 edition of Impact Wrestling, I came across some results courtesy of PWInsider.com. (I don't watch TNA but this seems pretty helpful.)
"Tara tells her Boo that Brooke makes her and everyone else who ever held that title proud."
There was a pretty strong hint that she could have been referring to Angel at that time. The question though is why didn't Tara acknowledge her straight up if that was the case?
WWE rarely ever mentions people who just been released but when they do they always let us know what their name was.
Michael Cole mentioned Kaval on an episode of NXT Season 4 after he left the WWE and in one of CM Punk's brilliant promos he called out John Laurinaitis by mentioning he wasn't man enough by firing Vladimir Koslov, Chris Masters, and David Hart Smith through phone calls.
Now again, no one can confirm or deny any of these things official "deciding factors", but as I said already they're very intriguing and worth looking at.
Now we all wonder if the WWE wants Angel. There was a report saying they do but no source attached. I don't think they really have much of a choice because if they don't, the Divas would be upset, the fans would be upset, and even TNA would be upset and even try to draw her back. (Maybe the fans should do some "Angelina" chants during Divas matches. They got Daniel Bryan his job back afterall.) I say it would take a number of months until she is called in for a tryout, then even more months until the contract is offered, so we might not see her on any TV any time soon. So for now, don't get your hopes up because you may not hear from either party until a little later in the year.
That is unless WWE and TNA struck some sort of crazy deal, which would explain that "rumor" which was reported so early. Or maybe Angel leaving TNA is just a ruse so they can try to get WWE to breach the guidelines in their lawsuit. I wouldn't be surprised knowing what TNA has tried over the years...
