It is no big secret that injuries have destroyed the main roster of WWE, which forced a lot of changes and adjustments to be made. It’s affecting both the men’s and women’s divisions of superstars, forcing the company to look for extra talent elsewhere. It now appears as if WWE will be giving some strong thought to bringing in Velvet Sky, Angelina Love, and a few of the other former TNA Knockouts.
Charlotte has been leading the division for months now, but there needs to be some new blood. Some veterans are stepping up, but some of the younger talent is dealing with a lot of issues that are keeping them out of the light.
Paige has faded into the background, but she has also dealt with some injuries, which included a concussion, as reported by Cageside Seats back in January. Emma was just brought back to the main roster and is now going to need surgery for a back injury she suffered this past weekend.
I’m pretty gutted about my injury, and of course, the timing! But all the love and support going into surgery Wednesday helps. Thanks! #RAW

Nikki Bella is still out with her numerous injuries. Brie Bella is all but officially retired from the ring. There are a number of issues with the division right now, as the great talent is being kept out of the ring through no fault of their own.
As WWE continues to keep the women’s division growing, they may end up looking outside of the company to keep it moving. That could include signing a number of names who are former TNA Knockouts, and some of them make a lot of sense.
According to the Daily Wrestling News, WWE is actually working on a brand new show for the WWE Network similar to the Global Cruiserweight Series. It would be an all-women’s show that would bring about new names and talent from around the world.
In this new show, there could be a number of former TNA Knockouts showing up, including Velvet Sky, Angelina Love, and Taryn Terrell. In the last couple of months, both Sky and Love had finished up their contracts with TNA and completed their runs with the company.
Terrell left TNA back in January due to her own personal choice and saying that it “wasn’t the right fit” for her life and career.
Terrell was a part of WWE from 2007 until 2010 and performed under the name Tiffany. She was actually the general manager of the ECW show for a couple of years and also performed as an in-ring talent.
In the past few months, WWE has called up Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and now Dana Brooke to the main roster from NXT. Many have been thinking that Bayley would be called up already, but Wrestling Inc. is reporting that she’s still in NXT since there are no other top babyface females to replace her right now.
WWE really does not want to take a step back with their women’s division since so much focus is being put on it at this moment. The re-branding of the division and taking the word “Divas” away from in-ring competitors is something the company wanted to push to show that all superstars are equal.
Injuries and loss of talent for any length of time could really pull the women out of the spotlight.
The WWE women’s division is an extremely important one, and it’s something the company wants to keep progressing. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon want it to be just as important as the men’s division, but serious injuries may end up taking it back a few steps. Velvet Sky, Angelina Love, and other former TNA Knockouts landing in WWE would not be surprising and could really advance the division they are trying to build.
