TNA could not have hired anyone better than Christy Hemme to promote their unique brand of pro wrestling. Winner of the 2004 WWE Diva contest and April 2005 Playboy cover girl, Christy's infectious enthusiasm seems to have no end.
After being released by the WWE in late 2005, she found a home in TNA. She debuted in April of 2006 at TNA Lockdown, one of the company's pay-per-views. Though she's been on the sidelines and not in the ring, she's anxious to be part of the mix.
"I've always loved pro wrestling," she said. "I can't wait to get back in there. TNA has a full woman's division planned."
On her WWE experience, she seemed less than pleased.
"They didn't want me to wrestle." She did have kind words for WWE diva Melina, picking her out as her favorite opponent. "She's a great worker."
Her in-ring showings should have indicated she could carry a match, wrestling for the WWE Woman's title at Wrestlemania 21 against Trish Stratus. Still, TNA is proving to be a great experience for her when compared to the WWE.
"It's the energy in the locker room. Everyone is always ready to go."
At the upcoming October 22 pay-per-view Bound for Glory, Christy will take part in a pre-show activity.
"I'll be part of the Fan Interaction, along with some of the guys."
Thirty TNA stars will be part of that event, held a day before Bound for Glory at the Shenandoah Country Club in West Bloomfield, Michigan.
As a parting thought, Christy managed to get in a plug for Bound for Glory and her favorite star in TNA.
"Kurt Angle has always been my favorite. He'll be the special enforcer for the main event."
You can be sure we'll be watching that one.Powered by Sidelines
