Melina Admits She Watches TNA, New TNA Talent, & More

Ryan Clark

TNA hasn’t made a decision yet on hiring Joey Matthews aka Joey Mercury and Johnny Swinger. They haven’t been used since the pay-per-view a few weeks ago. Management wasn’t particularly impressed with their work at the pay-per-view. Matthews’ chances of getting hired appear to be low because he was let go by WWE over drug issues, but it probably depends as much if they have a storyline for him.

The Sun out of the U.K. has an interview with Melina entitled Melina: Divas can wrestle too. Melina really wants management and the fans to see WWE’s girls as more than just eye candy. She wants women’s wrestling to evolve. “I look at all the female wrestlers who came before and I want to be better. I want to take everything Iâ<80><99>ve learned and evolve. Instead of being told what to do I want to be able to create. On Raw, weâ<80><99>re starting to do things on the fly and react to whatâ<80><99>s going on more. It may not look as pretty but we take pride that we did it ourselves, Melina said. Melina also admits to watching TNA. “I still watch all the wrestling I can â<80>” whether it’s TNA, Japanese or Lucha Libre â<80>” because that’s my art. We should look at how they present women and take a bit from all of them.” She also talks about “Sensational” Sherri Martel and her reaction to her passing.
