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.

70. Nidia gone wild
ft. Nidia, Torrie Wilson & Stacy Keibler (host)
Back in the day when Divas pranced around in bikinis and lingerie, was the day of ‘Divas Gone Wild!’ Nidia and Torrie were at each others throat at this time because Nidia wanted to be in Playboy, but WWE chose Torrie! As Torrie strutted her stuff, she was about to remove her bra, but Nidia came flying on stage with a huge chair and knocked Torrie down with it.
Nidia had gone wild! She grabbed Torrie’s neck and started to bash her head off the floor. Nidia got to her feet, spat her gum out at Torrie and went to walk off. The covergirl however got up and took Nidia down with a spear! The girls brawled until they got pulled apart by security.
Trisha reported earlier in the week that Lizzy Valentine turned down WWE’s Tough Enough to rejoin MTV’s Lucha Libre USA show. [here]. Joining Valentine will be two other big stars – one being former TNA Knockouts champion ODB and the other being the seven foot tall monster Isis The Amazon, formally known as Aloisia.
The three new ladies will be joining the women who are returning for the second series – Tigresa Caliente (Rhaka Khan), Rosetta Park and Brooke Carter (Brittany Savage). There’s no word of when the show will start though.
Awesome Kong made her return to television recently in the Lucha Libre promotion. She helped out Mini Parka in his fight against Tigresa Caliente( formerly Rhaka Khan) & Chi Chi. The promotion recognized the storyline that Tigresa was part of the Kongtourage and they had a falling out. It was great to see Kong back kicking some ass! Check out the video below!
Remember former TNA Knockout Rhaka Khan? She is now a part of Lucha Libre USA, a new Americanized Lucha Libre show being developed for MTV3 and maybe MTV Latino, according to TNAInsider.
The show is created and booked by former WWE star Mark Jindrak going under his hispanic stage name Marco Corleone. The promotion also uses a six sided ring, just like TNA used to. Expect to see Rhaka under a new stage name, “Tigressa Caliente” which translates from Spanish to English as “Hot Tigress”.
