TNA Knockout Praises David Lagana; Talks Jillian Hall

Mike Killam

TaraFormer WWE Diva and current TNA Knockout Tara recently spoke with Diva Dirt to promote Sunday's big Bound for Glory pay-per-view, during which she put over creative member David Lagana and his involvement with women's wrestling, teased her "big Hollywood boyfriend" reveal, and more. 

On her feud with Tessmacher: "I think that's a testament to Dave Lagana. He was the beginning of my career in WWE with storylines, and Bruce Prichard, too, who was always part of creative. I think Lagana took us, the girls division, under his wing and he's really been putting a lot of thought [in it], not just throwing us out there to have a two minute match. We have a good creative staff now — Bruce Prichard, Eric Bischoff, Dave Lagana. We have a good team. It's exciting. [...] They see how well the ratings are excelling, and how valuable the Knockouts are. I'm thankful that we have Dave Lagana."

On Jillian Hall in TNA: "Who do you think got her that tryout? I went up to Al Snow, I said, 'Why isn't Jillian wrestling? She's an amazing wrestler.' And he goes, 'But does she want to still?' I called her and said, 'Hey, do you want to come to TNA?' and she said, 'I don't know. How is it there?' I said it's amazing. I gave her Al Snow's number and next thing I know, I get the call saying I've got a match against Jillian at the next show.
