Ah, Halloween…. the one magical day of the year where you can dress up as anyone (or anything) you like and no one can judge you. If you’ve seen the movie ‘Mean Girls‘, it’s considered the one day of the year where a girl can dress like a…. you know where I’m going with this! – and no one can say anything about it. It’s also the one day of the year where the Divas and Knockouts get into the holiday spirit, whether it be taking part in special Halloween battle royals, costume contests, or simply just posing for photoshoots! Over the years we have seen about a hundred different costumes (in some cases, we have a few repeat offenders) grace our TV and computer screens. Since Halloween is just around the corner, we figured it would be fun to count down the Top 50 Halloween costumes…. and you the readers are going to have a say in this!
You will be able to vote for your favorite Divas and Knockouts in costume! Choose your top 5 costumes in each group, and the top ten with the most votes will make up the list. We will begin unveiling the Top 50 Scream Queens on October 26th with the #1 costume being unveiled on Halloween!
Remember: you only get 5 votes and a few days to do it. CHOOSE WISELY, MY FRIENDS.
Both original members of The Beautiful People – Angelina Love and Velvet Sky – in the past month have both been granted their release from Impact Wrestling. Both ladies made their debut in the company in the battle royal which started the Knockouts division in 2007. They teamed together, fought one another and went at it in the singles division, both former Knockouts also went on to become Knockouts and Knockouts Tag Team champions. Taking a look back at their careers in TNA, we’ve picked out fifteen ‘Beautiful’ moments that we think are HOLLERING! In no particular order, here they are..
ONE MAKEOVER TOO FAR
Back in the day, TNA promoted women’s wrestling as much as they did the men’s, putting them in stipulation matches and hardcore matches like the controversial Makeover Battle Royal Ladder match! Gail Kim had won head shaving immunity a week prior and with Angelina Love being the final woman eliminated from the battle royal, it would be her getting her head shaved if Roxxi won. The Beautiful People schemed and took their opportunity when Roxxi climbed the ladder. Love shoved the ladder over, causing Roxxi to fall and lose the match. As the Knockouts stood by, holding Roxxi’s hand as she got her head shaved, The Beautiful People paraded around ringside, laughing, teasing and mocking Roxxi getting her head shaved bald.
KIP’S OUT, TARA’S IN!
After making quick work of Sojourner Bolt in a TNA Knockouts title match, Angelina Love with her fellow beauties made it clear to “ICKY CREEP” ‘Cute’ Kip that he it’s time to stop riding their coat tails and he’s is no longer a part of The Beautiful People. Angelina had security throw him out before she threw out an open challenge to anyone. Much to the shock of TBP and everyone else, Tara debuted and took out all three members.
Sadly, the ‘Original Knockout’ Traci Brooks has parted ways with TNA.
After her 2011 return to the company which saw Traci involved in feuds with the likes of Madison Rayne and Karen Angle, Traci was last seen on the 5th January edition of Impact Wrestling. Her profile was quietly removed a couple of days ago, which raised speculation over her release and today Traci tweeted to confirm her departure.
Yes it’s true my time w Tna has come to an end&what;a great time I had. I love the Tna family and will miss everyone but will be watching every thurs!
We wish Traci all the best in future.
You’ve seen the festive commercials and now’s your chance to strut around like the Knockouts by winning the very t-shirts they wore. Or they could be a last-minute Christmas present, your choice.
These are the actual shirts worn by the Knockouts. Every shirt, except the Skull Dagger worn by Christy Hemme, is autographed by the Knockout who wore during the commercial shoot. Although Christy was unable to sign hers, I’m sure her DNA is on it somewhere.
Every shirt will include a certificate of authenticity.
The cheapest shirt – ODB‘s – is currently going for about $55, while the most expensive shirt – guess who? Velvet Sky! – is going for just over $400.
You can bid for a t-shirt here.
Reckon Knockout VP Karen Jarrett has been a little bit harsh to Velvet Sky on air? It’s apparently how management feel about the former Knockout Champion and Beautiful Person.
According to The Wrestling Observer, whatever Karen Jarrett has been calling TNA Knockout Velvet Sky – “street walker”, “prostitute”, take your pick, really – is basically how TNA management feel about her. Erm, right.
This is a rumour, so I’m taking it with a pinch of salt, but doesn’t it seem a little bit fishy? I don’t understand how management can go from making Vel-Vel their golden girl, to calling her a slut via Karen, week in, week out. The demeaning storylines – washing a car in a bikini, really?! – aren’t going to help anyone, either.
There we have it, guys: Today’s daily LOL story/rumour. I’ve missed them, haven’t you?
At the 4 minute mark, Queen of the Knockouts, Miss Karen, is seen backstage with her cronies Madison Rayne and Gail Kim. She says ODB was “AWE-FUL!” and didn’t get the job done last week. So tonight, Jarrett is counting on the ‘ace in the hole’, Madison, who gets shot down for sucking up. Karen tells her to take the grin off her face and put her game face on, she doesn’t want Mickie to face Gail in one piece.
Madi shrugs it off and says she’s done it numerous times before and tonight, well, it’ll be no different. Miss Karen lets her know one more time that she’s relying on her. So no pressure, Madison. Karen then tells Gail that despite having the night off, she is infact gonna have a match… with Traci! Gail goes off her nut and Miss Karen’s having none of it. She tells her to settle her ass down as she’s gonna explain. The V.P. of the Knockouts then shuts the door so the cameraman (and we) can’t creep on the convo anymore.
Following last night’s Impact Wrestling, Jeremy Borash was joined by Gail Kim and Angelina Love for interviews on the Post-Show.
Gail was interviewed first, at around the 4.30 mark (Just after Hubby #379′s segment with Kid Kash recap), and she discussed the upcoming UK Maximum Impact tour and how unfazed she is about Final Resolution opponent, Mickie James.
After yet another Knockout advert break, JB is joined by Angelina Love, who is freezing after “continually washing a sparkling white car” in an itsy-bitsy bikini with other Knockouts. Her opinion on Miss Karen was the polar opposite of Knockout Champion Gail Kim’s earlier opinions, but Angie’s interview was definitely more interesting. I’ve missed seeing Angelina Love in interviews and such.
Welcome ladies and gents to the brand new The Miss Karen Show; your weekly dose of iMPACT! Wrestling coverage.
Kicking off TMKS today is a backstage segment featuring the majority of the Knockouts roster. Winter, Angelina Love, Tara, Brooke Tessmacher and Velvet Sky are all in robes in the parking lot, freezing their YAYA’s off. “QUIT YOUR WHINING” is heard as Miss Karen (with her posse of Traci, Madison and Gail) bursts onto the scene.
Miss Karen lets them all know she’s in charge and this is what they get for being disrespectful prostitutes. They have to wash the wrestlers cars before moving on to the back parking lot to wash the rest. Karen is a busy lady, so she tells them phonecalls have to be made and leaves Miss Madison in charge of the
Bad Teacher bad Knockout car wash. Miss Madison disrobes and demands the others take theirs off.
No you’re not going crazy. I’m not Trisha or Candice, it is infact me doing the iMPACT! coverage this week, so let’s get right in there with Karen Jarret calling out the Knockouts.
Karen and her cronies, Madison Rayne, Gail Kim and enemy/lackey Traci Brooks all head down to the ring. Madison tries to cover up Traci’s jugs, but Karen’s not there to play games. She wants the booties of TnT, Winter, Angelina and Velvet in the ring! The wanted Knockout booties enter the ring and Karen gets straight on it.
Karen admits she’s failed to turn the Knockouts into classy, covered-up, elegant ladies. She says she’s recieved so many emails, tweets etc. from horny perverts wanting to see more KO flesh. She says she knows some of them will have no problem with it because they have their assets out like ALL THE TIME! She moves onto the “REAL WRESTLER” Tara, but gives her and the other Knockouts a newsflash; Gail Kim is the only real athlete and real wrestler in TNA.
She says there’s gonna be a lingerie ball match so the “prostitutes” better grab their skimpiest, trashiest outfits (which Karen says is normal for some) and if any of the KO’s have a problem with it, she’ll kindly show them the door and tell them to GTFO. Meeting over!
