Tori's contract was not renewed last spring. The story I heard was that she was asked to report to one of the developmental territories (OVW, if memory serves)to work with the up & coming talent, along with working off some of the ring rust due to her shoulder injury in late 2000. She supposedly didn't want to do so and was released.
It'd be great if fences could be mended between the two parties, because I'd love to see what she could do now that there's some REAL workers (Molly, Jazz, Jackie, Ivory) in the division and they can have their own feuds without it being based on "oh, you're trying to take my man from me", that sorta thing. I've talked with people who saw Tori in some of the indies and they've all said the same thing, that given the opportunity, she can put on a really solid match.
But to answer the original question? My God, sometimes this is so easy, it's like shooting fish in a barrel.....
YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO HOME, BUT YOU CAN'T STAY HERE ON MY TV SCREEN!! JUST PACK UP YOUR SLOPPY MOONSAULT, YOUR OVERALL SLOPPY RING WORK, YOUR INABILITY TO CUT A DECENT PROMO AND GO!! Like Pato, I sure as hell didn't miss her or the rest of 'Team Extreme' when they were gone.
I remember Hollywood from GLOW. Her and Ivory (she was Tina Ferrari back then, I think) were the only ones who could really put on a match. Hollywood's flying headscissors was just amazing -- sort of a sidesaddle frankensteiner. Thing is, Hollywood today doesn't look anything like she did then. LOTS of cut-and-paste, if you know what I mean.
I still say they should bring in Taylor, the blonde who lost Tough Enough 1. She's hot, and she can put on a solid 4-5 minutes, which is all you need in these women's matches.
Something I am hoping becomes a part of this show is some type of where are they now sort of thing. Where the WWE can intro retired or wrestlers who have passed away to these newer fans. Other basic things could be taken from this concept:
