Details On A Big TNA Name That Wants To Be In WWE That Recently Signed A New Contract - Who It Is & When They Could Make The Possible Jump

Shares 387

Even though she just re-signed with TNA Wrestling, we're told Velvet Sky still has WWE aspirations, although it may be a long shot. She just signed a new two-year contract with TNA and at 31-years-old, the soonest she could go to WWE would be when she's 33. We're told she does have allies in the WWE office and if they're still in power two years from now, a jump couple be possible.

Believe it or not, WWE officials were were actually the ones encouraging her to just re-sign with TNA as those involved in talent relations for WWE have no idea how long the hiring freeze will last. She'd been stubbornly refusing to re-sign in hopes of jumping to WWE as quickly as possible, but for someone like her who originally made her mark in TNA, it could be a while until WWE is comfortable signing someone like that.

Sources close to Sky tell us on the condition of anonymity that she tried to get the shortest [with TNA] possible and eventually agreed to the two year deal. She wanted a one year deal in hopes that a year from now WWE would be able to sign her, but TNA wouldn't go any shorter than two years.

Those close to her say she's really bummed out about how the whole thing played out. She felt like at 31 this would be her last chance to get a WWE deal, fearing they wouldn't be interested in a new Diva about to enter her mid 30s. Sky is just one of the victims of TNA's litigation against WWE involving office employee Brian Wittenstein.

    Don’t understand why a judge can’t ask for a copy of WWE’s contracts and a 90 day no compete cause and make a standard ruling with that. To me that would be a better and more viable option the current hiring freeze. Granted TNA, ROH and DGUSA does not have a pocket close to the size of WWE but what ROH and DGUSA understand is they’re place and purpose. If TNA embraced the fact they’re place in the wrestling world is actual wrestling with less story line, ( which has been increasing) there for making it appeal to those who want to see wrestling. Much like ROH and DGUSA embrace the fact they are just a platform for recognition and are not and will WWE. People, such as Sting, Austin Aries, Somoa Joe and numberous others have a passion for wrestling. An art that has seemed since been lost in this generation of WWE, “Where Punches and Kicks are Glorified and Traditional Wrestling Is Not.” Those who care about the sport and art of wrestling will know and see the differnce along with wanting to push TNA to be a competitive program along side Raw thus making both programs ready to so what it takes to succeed. This in turn brings moral, commradery and a sense of self importance. Making not only a better preformer but a better product in all

    This only makes fans hate TNA that much more. I worked for a company who threatened lawsuits when people left – I thought it was very ironic. The very reason people don't like you is because you are a bully when you don't get your way…. and thats how they act in real life. If people want to go on and prosper and they've earned that right by learning or achieving success from your company, you should feel flattered that you helped create a future star and be happy with the fact that at the very least you get to take some credit…. not blackball them… makes me very sad as a wrestling fan.


    Couldn’t she just ask for her release once the dust clears???

    How much longer is this TNA thing going to be in affect? It seems like nothing has been happening in regards to that and it's mostly screwing over WWE and those in TNA who want to jump ship and I don't think TNA is going to benefit from resigning disgruntled employees like this.

    is velvet sky a huge name? how many pay per views has she headlined?

    How can fans hate TNA for this? They are only protecting the significant investments that they have made in making their talent recognizeable names in the industry. If they were to just let every worker that they’ve basically created jump to WWE it would be extremely bad business. They aren’t some developmental territory for WWE. They are their only competition.

      Can you imagine the uproar if WWE did something like this where anyone who had been hired by them was unable to wrestle anywhere else. Forget your 90 day no compete, indefinite no compete. You’re taking away a persons potential work options. If TNA had no interest in velvet sky, and she hadn’t been hired, and WWE couldn’t hire her, she would be screwed and its not fair on her or other talents

    Does TNA pay so little that Velvet Sky couldn't have sat around for a few months and maybe worked on some independent shows in the mean time while the whole WWE/TNA thing was sorted?
