Plus, she's getting up there in Diva-years. And she never really got much better at the wrestling part of the game, so it's not really that big of a loss. Kind of amazing that a piece of eye candy stuck around for nearly 10 years non-stop.
It's really quite the accomplishment.

Originally posted by kentishDoes this mean Kidman has to get a job now? Sorry, couldn't resist.
No, since they've seperated a few years ago. Last thing I heard she was dating one of the spirit squad guys? And at this years HOF ceremony, Kidman was in attendance with a VERY HOT pair of twins. Not sure what they were to him, but damn were they nice. Point is, not with Torrie.
Originally posted by BigDaddyLoco I imagine there is an easy TNA paycheck in her future.
She's come right out and said that she's done wrestling in the ring, and TNA already has a bunch of females on their roster. She could appear in some small capacity for a few shows, but her easy paycheck wouldn't be very big, as far as I'm concerned.
Originally posted by Matt TrackerSoCal Val wrestled?
D'oh, no, you're right, of course. She's wrestled a few times in indies but I have no idea if there was any actual "wrestling" involved on her part.
On-topic, I agree entirely with TheOldMan: I was never a fan -- even dating back to her days with WCW, and, you know, back then I even liked Mark Jindrak.
***EDIT -- and, as reminded by Quezzy below, Karen is also a non-wrestler. I should just shut up.

Originally posted by TheOldManContrarian view here, but I was never a big Torrie fan. I thought she was to Divas what Lashley was to muscular giants, charisma-wise. Which is to say "entirely void of it".
I'd say that's pretty unfair since there are enough uncharismatic divas to say that charisma isn't even part of being a diva. Sable didn't have any charisma, neither did Stacy, neither did Miss Elizabeth, neither does pretty much all of them except Sunny and Trish and maybe one or two others.
Most of the TNA women have gotten in the ring at SOME point, but that doesn't make them wrestlers. If Torrie wanted to go to TNA she could do just as much as Val, Salinas, Tracy, Peyton, Christy, Karen and Sharmell. Of course, they don't need that many females doing jack squat but I'd take Torrie over any of the rest of them.
I heard at one point that they were going to make Torrie a spokesperson, is it possible they come back with a different contract or would they have not announced her as being released if they had done that?
That phrase, "create new stars" always gets on my nerve, because when they say that, it seems like they mean, "We need to call up more green guys from OVW." They HAVE stars, they're just not pushing the right ones.
