Former TNA Talent Critical of How WWE Picks Female Talent

Nick Paglino

Steven Muehlhausen, host of the Pro Wrestling/MMA Radio Show in Chicago called "The Fight Club Chicago," recently conducted an interview with former TNA talent Christina Von Eerie to discuss her appearance for Dragon Gate USA this past weekend. Other topics discussed included how difficult it is for female talent to get into WWE. the following are interview highlights:

Von Eerie on the difficulty of getting into the WWE: "There's always someone that says you have the skill, maybe there's someone who's skinner than you, or you have the look, but maybe there's someone younger than you that has the same look. For me, I have a bunch of tattoos. What if there's a girl that's smaller, younger and has no tattoos? It's really a gamble or a lottery you never have a guaranteed chance. They can look at you and go "wow that person looks completely amazing, awesome and then they see someone the next day that has just a little something extra, that little something. You won't even be able to name what it is. They just have it. Just the little fine things."

Is it fair: "I definitely think that a girl that's been training hard and working hard for years and years should get her payoff. It's also up to that girl to be in the best shape possible, look as good as possible, work on your mic skills and I think that girl should get her shot. I don't think it's fair if you pick out a model and say, "hey your signed."
