Originally posted by VanillaSky Calling people sexist just because they believe she is flat out horrible is just lame. Jackie Gayda should just give it up and go back to cheating on her boyfriend or whining or whatever she does best.
Besides the fact that you just proved my point about sexism, I want to remind Gayda-haters of a few points:
1. The girl competed for the last few weeks of Tough Enough AND through her WWE matches on a knee that had a torn miniscus tendon and needed surgery. Have you ever torn your miniscus? Friggin' thing hurts like hell. So keep your mouth shut if you want to talk about Gayda being a whiner.
2. The infamous mixed-tag match with Trish wasn't her only match, and the others went fine.
3. The only reason Gayda was even in those matches was because of Vince's cross-promotional obligations to MTV. That she was in over her head wasn't her fault, and if you really think about it she just made the best of a bad situation.
4. Last but definitely NOT least, Trish was equally to blame. She was the supposedly more experienced of the two, yet Trish did absolutely nothing to alleviate the damage. In fact, Trish made things ten fucking times WORSE by blindly continuing to run through her offense.
Almost as if (could it be??) she was getting a kick out of making Gayda look bad.
Ok, I don't know how I proved that I am a sexist by pointing out actual FACTS that happened. I mean, she DID cheat on her boyfriend. She DID whine.
A torn MENISCUS is nothing to be taken lightly. But so what if she finished with it? Triple H finished a match with a torn freaking quad! Misterio's been in need of knee surgery for a while. Wrestling injured is just part of the game. It doesn't make her special.
As for blaming Trish for Gayda's match...I've seen the match, I've watched it a few times for joke value. Trish was trying her hardest to keep it all together. What was she supposed to do...revert back to body slams and snap mares and basic moves just so Gayda could keep up?
I'm not going to comment any more on this. I'm just wasting time where I could be bashing Gayda somewhere else. Thank you and good night.
Good lord, I actually completely forgot about Punk's stint in TNA. And looking back, it's really fascinating to see the way Punk's career has progressed since then. He literally went from the cult follower to the cult leader in a 7-year span.
