The Miami Herald has a new article up with quotes from TNA Knockout Velvet Sky. In the interview, she discusses working with Angelina Love & Gail Kim, TNA's emphasis on the Knockouts Division, her dream opponent, and more. In the following excerpt, Sky explains what sets TNA's Knockouts apart:
“It’s awesome here because TNA lets us explore character development,” She said. “We are not just coming out there as girls wrestling and then you don’t see us for a couple of weeks. We get to do backstage vignettes and promos. They let us speak on the microphone, and we do a lot of it in the ring. You don’t see that elsewhere.
“There are matches [elsewhere] where the girls will wrestle for three minutes or so and go to the back. They don’t say a word, and you really don’t know who is who. Here [TNA] we are so grateful we get the chance to be able to come into our own, have time to talk and have our characters develop. I just feel like that has us connected with the fans more."
She later went on to name her dream opponent in the following excerpt:
“I would absolutely love to work with Amy Dumas one day, the wrestler formally known as Lita,” Sky said.
“She is the whole reason I wanted to get into this business. I have always been a fan of wrestling here and there, but when I saw her for the first time, I was just so blown away by her look and athletic ability and how she connected to the crowd, whether it was male or female.
“I try to pattern myself after her. I don’t do the high-flying maneuvers, staying on the ground, but she is the whole reason I wanted to get into this business and got into wrestling. If she were to come here, I think that would be awesome. I would love to work with her one day.”
