Victoria had a pretty good match on Heat tonight against Trish Stratus. She sort of looks like the wrestler formerly known as Chyna. The only thing that bothered me during the match was D-Lo and the Coach's awful announcing.

I got the Chyna resemblance too, but it doesn't seem to go much further than being tall and having black hair.
As for Victoria's other talents, one match isn't really enough for me to judge her further than "didn't suck or anything." She's no Molly, but she did a nice couple of snap suplexes and bumped well for Trish, so I'm cautiously optimistic. And another decent worker in the women's division is nothing to turn up one's nose at.
Victoria seemed much bigger (muscular) than in her days as one of Godfather's hoes. Good match with Trish, nice false finishes and great reffing by Jackie. But she needs to upgrade that indy fed gear of hers (pink teri-cloth with her name across the trunks, weak).

I had very little problem with the announcing, sure they once went to horny for hotties commentating. But on the most part they stayed on the match, D-lo put Trish over great with his "She came in as just a diva now she's a bonofide wrestler" And they put Victoria over well with the "she just came in and showing no respect to a former champion". Hell that's more putting over individuality and charaters then Lawler has done since his return.
The match was great. Especially considering that they had no house show prep going in. The crowd was a little like who is this when Victoria came out but they got into it pretty quick after the bitch slap and her confortation with Ref Jacqualine.
Victory pulled out a great double suplexes, and the front flip from the outside to the inside was cool... Trish once again amazing, flying body press was sweet, what was even cooler is seeing Trish play with the crowd when she was going up, she looked at the crowd for half a second while climbing the ropes to cue the crowd and all stood up on her cue (stuff she talk about wanting to learn while injured). Plus her japanesse armdrag is amazing, that's the second time saw her do that first time on Raw tag match on Jackie Gayda. That armdrag is sweet.
Real great basics by both women, nice foramrs, kicks and chops by Trish. Nice clotheslines and punches by both girls, it's great seeing Trish jump into Victorias clothesline and comes crashing down
Who'd guess even a year ago that they'd have enough confidence in Trish to be used as a wrestler to help debute Victoria on her first WWE show (I know Victoria isn't totally green but it is her first WWE TV show). Without any houseshow match and maybe just a little prep in the afternoon did an awesome job.
I like Victoria, she's another one who has a unique look. Has a nice style and looks really comfortable in there.
I don't get it, everyone loves rats, but they don't want to drink the rats milk?
Dang I knew I should have watched Heat last night. Who knew they were going to bring Victoria in already? Wow looks like the womens division is really pouring on the new additions--hopefully this means more and better storylines.

Fit Finlay deserves a HUGE raise for the work he's done with the women's division. If he can do the same thing for Torrie Wilson and Stacy Keibler, then he'll be a miracle worker. Seriously, the women's division is becoming a major highlight of WWE TV and is at its most prestigious. Let's hope they don't flush it down the toilet by jobbing Molly to Torrie Wilson.
And that's the bottom line, because it's false! It's DAMN false!
I have so much more respect for Roman Reigns after this promo. He carried the weight of that terrible dialogue on his shoulders and carried it to the finish line like a champ. This is absolutely not the sort of stuff this character should be saying.
