Interview highlights courtesy of Kahlil Thomas, MNM’s associate producer & official correspondent:
The feeling of competing for the Knockouts Championship at TNA’s biggest Pay-Per-View of the year, the special meaning of Bound for Glory to her, & the importance of returning to Philadelphia: “It did take a while to sink in, but there’s two cool things about this Pay-Per-View: Bound For Glory was where I made my debut with TNA four years ago, so that in itself means a lot to me, and what better place to do it than Philadelphia, my old stomping grounds for the independent scene. I absolutely love the Philadelphia crowd, and I’m proud to compete in a match in front of them. It’s like my hometown.”
Her thoughts on the evolution of the Knockouts division since its inception/her TNA debut four years ago: “I feel like when the Knockouts division first formed in 2007, it was the first chance for TNA to have women on the roster, to prove themselves and shine. When you’re introducing a whole bunch of women wrestlers that the TV public doesn’t know about, I feel like at first you want to leave a good impression. You want to show them what you can do in the ring and not just be some floozy character. I feel like you change with the times, so once they know you and know what you could do, then you could turn it up a notch with your character.”
What she believes should change in the TNA Knockouts division: “I kind of wish there were more women tag teams in TNA. We have the (Knockout) Tag Team Titles, and there’s not really that many women tag teams, so the Tag Team Title matches are not very often. In order to do that, we would have to get more Knockouts on the roster. That’s one of things that doesn’t shine that if given the opportunity can shine, because there are a lot of talented women in TNA. I feel that the tag teams could make it higher than where it is already.”
Much more is contained in Velvet’s exclusive interview with The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network, including her candid thoughts on the mental & physical preparation for her Four-Way Knockouts Championship Match at Bound for Glory (vs. Winter, Mickie James, & Madison Rayne), why she classifies this bout as the biggest match of her career, the competition between the WWE Divas & TNA Knockouts, being voted #17 in this year’s “PWI Female 50,” why she would like to appear on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” who she would like to square off with in her ideal “Dream Match” scenario, what Karen Jarrett’s presence & Traci Brooks’ TNA return have both meant to the Knockouts division, plus much more!
