— TNA Knockout Raisha Saeed, or rather, the woman underneath the Burqa, Melissa Anderson, suffered a serious leg injury on Thursday during a routine workout at her local gym, reports ChickFight.tv. Anderson appears on Chickfight shows and she informed them that she needs to stay off the leg for 7 to 10 days and that any travel is out of the question. This could force her to miss the next set of Impact tapings a little over a week from now. Chickfight had no choice but to remove Anderson from today’s show in Ipswich, UK. The TNA Knockout is said to be very upset over the situation. For more on the story, click here. Anderson recently opened a website. She posts blogs and pictures of her travels on it. You can visit the site at www.CheerleaderMelissa.com and send her well wishes.
— The Miami Herald has an article on TNA Women’s Knockout Champion Taylor Wilde. She talks about her successful run in TNA so far, as well as her release from a certain rival wrestling company last summer. Wilde was so upset with her release from them last year that she’s can’t even mention its name. “As soon as I got a phone call from TNA, it totally revitalized me,” Wilde said. “I would never think backward, and everything happens for a reason. I’m now glad the company [WWE] let me go.” Wilde talks about her journey through wrestling, also adding, “Then, I got hired by a big wrestling company [WWE], and they cut me off in about a year, and that was the roughest fall I’ve taken so far — only because they took away my passion.” After being let go from WWE, she admits to being depressed, and believing that her wrestling career was over. “I was actually done with wrestling during that time. I thought, ‘I’ll go back to school, finish my degree,’ which I’m still doing. I just thought, ‘That’s enough. I tried. No hard feelings.’ I still loved it, but my passion continued to subside,” Wilde said. “It was a rough period because I didn’t know where to go from there. Now I know everything happens for a reason, and I don’t regret that experience at all because it made me a much tougher person and taught me, life in general, how to deal with people in business. It was a good experience, and now I couldn’t be happier.” You can read the article in its entirety at this link.
