The Miami Herald recently conducted an interview with the latest Knockout to debut with TNA, Lacey Von Erich. The following are excerpts from the interview:
On TNA vs WWE: "TNA is completely different than WWE. The atmosphere and the people are different. I think it’s really competitive in WWE where there is one blonde and then another blonde. There is just so much cattiness, and rumors fly. Candice Michelle told me that. She just got out. A couple of the girls who got out of WWE were telling me that. So I was going into TNA thinking there was going to be so much drama, and it was going to be terrible."
On Arriving in TNA: "I get there, and they are the most incredible girls ever. We go have beers after the shows. ODB is awesome. I already knew Awesome Kong who is amazing. I also feel you get to shine. They want you to wrestle good there. It’s not that WWE doesn’t want you to wrestle well, but you don’t feel like you can wrestle to your potential. In TNA, they want you to do your maximum potential."
On Replacing Angelina Love: "I feel like it was made for me, and she [Angelina] wasn’t a good fit for it in my opinion. I thought that everybody was going to be, `Oh no. Angelina is gone,’ but not one person said that. Nobody really missed her that much. I feel like I can fill the shoes that I’m supposed to. TNA told me this role was made for me, and I feel the same way. So when I met the other members, Velvet and Madison, they are awesome. . . When I got there, we all just felt like we were one group, and the band was completed. . .I’ve never met Angelina before in my life. After what some people have said, I don’t know if I want to. I just feel like we can all be a group together and shine together, so I’m excited about that."
