The following is an excerpt from an article from

What are your thoughts about where the Knockouts division is right now? Going back to a few years ago it was extremely successful and then it seemed to go through a bit of a lull. Now, it’s really getting back on track and there is a lot of emphasis on the division.

Yeah, there’s been some ups and downs with the changing faces in the division but I never saw what other people did when they said it was lacking and that there was a shortage of talent or whatever it was they were using to describe the time there when we had a couple of people leaving and a couple new people coming in. I’ve always thought that the Knockouts division had a lot of potential and a lot of incredible talent more so now than ever I think. There’s a lot of new faces and a lot of people that the fans are familiar with but haven’t necessarily seen interact with other girls. So, wrestling fans are getting faces and new storylines to follow and new people to see in the ring together. It’s exciting for all of us and I think it’s equally exciting for everyone watching.

How good is it to know that on a consistent basis that the segments on "Impact" that feature the Knockouts division traditionally do the highest ratings for the show?

It feels good because I know how hard we all work and that we bust our butts and we all put 100 percent into every week, every match, every segment, everything we do. So, it’s good to know that all our hard work pays off every week.

What’s it like having Mickie James and Tara in the division?

Personally, I think it’s really good for the Knockouts division. Those are two faces that the fans are familiar with and the fans are excited to see. I know a lot of us are excited to get the opportunity to work with Tara, to work with Mickie. They can only do things that are good for the division.
