I just read this story on 411.com, and if true it's a darn shame - Nikita not only had some good ability in the ring in OVW (at least when she first started and was wrestling a few matches) but she certainly had a body that wouldn't quit as well.
To drop her and keep someone like Jackie Gayda around just doesn't make any sense.
I will admit that they haven't had her doing much in the way of any in-ring matches since . . . well, since forever, really. Her last feud was with Jackie, and they had to resort to keeping it on a "push her down, pull her hair" level in order to give Jackie a chance to not look bad (which didn't help Jackie, as she tripped coming to the ring on the night the feud was ended).
Nikita was at the show on Wednesday, so she may be staying on anyway. Hard to say at this point.
I agree with this completely. AJ was my favorite Diva. I don't know, and don't care, what that says about me. But I saw her as someone who was able to bring it in the ring and on the mic and entertained me.
