One of the most unfortunate things TNA has done recently is the Robbie E and Cookie thing.
Now I love Becky Bayless, and I am sure Rob Eckos is a fine wrestler, but why did TNA have to bring them in and turn them into "Jersey Shore" clones?
Really, this goes back to the old WWF, and not the cool fun part either.
I suppose this is TNA's way of trying to pull in the MTV fan base.
I'm guessing next will be a Sheldon and Leonard tag team ripping off Big Bang Theory (hey...it's popular!) and maybe a vampire/werewolf tag team to get the Twilight fan base.
The sad thing is that like I mentioned earlier, I really like Becky.
Most people think of her as a valet/announcer/interviewer, but she has gotten in quite a bit of ring time.
Back in 2008, Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) ranked Becky as number 37 in the best 50 female singles wrestlers and she once held the Texas Wrestling Entertainment (TWE) Texas Ladies Championship.
She has worked (as a wrestler) for wrestling promotions Ring of Honor (ROH), Wrestling Superstars Unleashed (WSU), Women Superstars Uncensored and on Wrestlicious (as Brooke Lynn) she took part in the "Hoedown Throwdown" (sigh) twenty girl battle royal.
I don't see why TNA didn't just get Becky some wrestling gear and put her in the ring as a Knockout and not have to resort to this MTV ripoff stuff.
MTV and wrestling doesn't mix.
Remember Wrestling Society X?
One of the more embarrassing moments as JWoww From Jersey Shore faces off with Cookie on TNA iMPACT....
Even though I don't like Cookie, I still love me some Becky, and you can see her live on Saturday, December 18th at CWF Mid-Atlantic’s anniversary event “Battlecade XI”.
ArenaChicks will have her there for a special autograph andphotograph session.
