– TNA newcomer Jenna Morasca posted a blog on her MySpace account defending her decision to sign with TNA Wrestling and become a wrestler.
“I got presented with an opportunity in mid December to visit the set of TNA in Orlando and see all the people involved,” Morasca wrote. “I hit it off with (most) everyone right away. I thought the work environment was great, the enthusiasm was great, and the people were very cool. I was offered the job so why should I turn it down because I feared what some haters would think!!! Would you turn down a job you wanted because you were afraid some people might not like your decision- hell no! I took on this job because I respect the sport, which it is, and was excited for a new challenge.”
Morasca said the storylines in pro wrestling can “get a little cheesy,” but she still respects the athletes in the ring and is not looking to make a mockery of the business. “Like I said a million times already I am not here to make a mockery of the sport,” Morasca wrote. “I know some people say ‘mockery’ are you talking about wrestling!?, Yes I know sometime the storylines in wrestling get a little cheesy but that does not take away the sheer athleticism of the people involved. So finally once and for all I took the job because I enjoy wrestling, have major respect for everyone involved, was excited to try something new, and can’t WAIT to get in the ring! So all the haters- suck on that.”
Morasca adds that she was not brought in to replace Gail Kim. “Oh another thing! I was NOT brought in to replace the very talented Gail Kim,” Morasca wrote. “Gail was gone before I got there so I am not privy to all the details of her departure. But, I do know she is an extremely talented athlete. And for people who are saying that I took Gail’s money- Suckers you have NO idea how much I am getting paid, and you never will so lets just stop with your speculating.”
