If I can imagine what a Divas contract is like, it's this:

1. You are required to get a boob job

2. You cannot wrestle under any circumstances, unless your names are Trish, Lita, and Victoria

3. You can only serve as a valet or as T & A (no pun intended) fodder

Any violations of the above rules will lead to you getting depushed or released from the WWE.

Signed,

__________________________
(your name)

On a side note, that had to happen just when she was getting better.

Unfortunately, that would lead to more Diva Searches.

Bah -- Phoenix is in as soon as the writers decide it's time to pull the trigger on a gigantic-thighs gimmick. Like it's not just a matter of time.

Sample Lawler line: "I think it would be great if every time Beth Phoenix got in the ring, the fans would chant, 'Thun-der thighs! Thun-der thighs!" Except she probably wouldn't be called Beth Phoenix. Such an indie name.

Depends on what they do with her. If they treated her like the Second Coming just because her resume contains the letters W, W, and E--then yeah, it would suck hard. If they just have her show up and be some wrestler's arm candy, like they're doing with Gail Kim and Jackie Gayda, then it doesn't harm TNA's integrity. And if they got free pub for signing a Playboy Playmate, no problem.

I can't imagine she'll really sign with TNA, but now that I think of it she'd be perfect as the girlfriend that everyone thinks cut Raven's balls off.

"Beth Phoenix"?

(google search...) Oh wow, it's Phoenix. She's an excellent wrestler. Like Traci and Gail Kim, she also did a lot of work at the indie league I helped out with in Toronto. She's unbelievably strong, and cute as hell.

Great to see she's still going with it, as she took the back seat to the aforementioned ladies for not having the stereotypical diva look. She's an awesome heel in the Molly Holly mold.

This stinks. She was one of the few entertaining divas. Well, they'll probably just pick another one from the "WWE Diva Machine" to replace her.

It's the Playboy Centerfold curse, roughly the equivalent of the Madden curse. If you are a WWE Diva, do NOT do Playboy shoots (See Sable, Chyna).

If she did ask for her release, I wonder if the upcoming Iraq trip hastened her decision to leave.

Jeez, I just would've asked for the trip off. Didn't RVD do that one year? He's still witht he company, so it's not like they punished him by firing him.

And RVD caught a lot of shit for it. You're also comparing Christy Hemme to RVD.

I'm just saying there's a precedent for it.

And there is also a precedent of firing low carders over any little incident and looking the other way for the rest of the roster.

I can only assume the terms of her release had something to do with her contract for 250K. WWE didn't think she was worth keeping her for that price. Last hope I guess is they just released her from her WWE contract and kept her because she was offered a development deal.

She also has a 90-day no-compete clause if she does go elsewhere

Hemme's $250K contract had run out a few months ago, and she had resigned for a lower amount.

Quite agree there. She's been in OVW for about a year and a half now, although she was getting more matches earlier on. Once Heyman moved her to being Stevens' valet, her match appearances dropped off.

Took a HECK of a bump two weeks ago on the OVW television show. She got superkicked by Matt Cappotelli, but that wasn't the painful part. When she fell, she bounced off the apron and proceeded head-first into the floor. Ouch. Good to see her the following week, as it looked like she could have gotten very hurt.

BTW, I just want to point out that when I said she had these "great Robert-Crumb-drawn thighs," I meant great as in excellent. Didn't want to make it sound like I was dumping on her appearance there.

And now back to your Christy commentary.

Even as a joke the fact you even wrote that...Ugghh



Anyway, the report is going around she wanted more money.

Christy had won the Diva search contest last year which guaranteed her $250,000 for her first year. That is way more than any other Divas are currently making. When it came time to renegotiate, she was offered a very low-ball deal by Johnny Ace. Given the fact that she posed nude for Playboy and was then being sent to OVW to train harder, she opted to part ways. The travel was also grueling which didn't help matters when she was offered such a low payday
