Dixie Carter Comment Rebuttal
On the state of the Knockouts division: "The female talent, there’s not a lot of female talent that’s on the level of these girls. Angelina Love was gone for several years and came back and I think she came back better than ever. Madison Rayne was gone for a year and she came back in the best shape of her life after having a baby. There’s only so many women in the world that can compete on this level, and if they can’t compete on the level, it’s not worth having them on the roster. They don’t do the others any favours if they’re not on par with what the Knockouts division has been expected of.
We have to cycle our girls in and out, until someone can come in like a Taryn Terrell, I’ll say for Taryn to come in and have the kind of matches she’s had with Gail Kim, for somebody that’s newer in female wrestling it doesn’t get much better. She competed blow-to-blow with Gail Kim and held her own and did amazing, that’s what we’re looking for. I would rather refresh characters, but you have to keep the quality of the girls’ wrestling at a certain level or they don’t fit in the Knockouts brand at all." -mirror.co.uk
