Former TNA Knockouts Champion On Why Controversial WWE Angle Was Dropped, Her TNA Departure, More
September 4, 2016 - WWE
Former WWE star and TNA Knockouts Champion Katie Lea recently seemed on a Pancakes and Powerslams Show. They sent us these highlights:
Who gave her an event to contest for WWE:
“I’d indeed left to a tryout. [WWE] had these open tryouts during a time. So I’d left to that, and we didn’t hear anything. Then we met Tommy Dreamer on an eccentric show, and he told me if we came behind over , give me a call and I’ll get we requisitioned and a tryout. And [eventually] he hired me”
Why her “Katie Lea Burchill” gimmick ended:
“They wanted to do a incest thing, though they wanted to provide it with honour and make it a good storyline rather than only chuck it out there since we was going to get some tardy anyway, that in a end, unfortunately they had to lift it since of a PG.”
Who came adult with her angle as Winter in TNA with Angelina Love:
“That was Vince Russo’s thought entirely. we did have a integrate of meetings where we sat down and threw some ideas around. He was always really open and receptive. He would take what he favourite and write a storyline. Essentially, that was Russo’s idea, and that was his storyline. I’ll always be beholden for that.”
Her TNA departure:
“I was told nothing. we was not even told one thing. My agreement was up, and they only stopped drifting me in, and that was a finish to that.”
Katie Lea also talked about wrestling in a UK, Al Snow, her ladder compare with Beth Phoenix and more. You can check out a full talk by clicking here.
