– TNA Knockout and Survivor star Jenna Morasca posted a blog and come comments on her MySpace regarding her match with Sharmell at TNA’s Victory Road pay-per-view. Here’s what she wrote:
“This past Sunday on Victory Road I had my debut match against Sharmell LIVE! I want to thank everyone who has sent me love and props for the match. I also know some wrestling lovers were not as excited as I was. I want to clear up a few things. First, you cannot judge my match against Sharmell like you would a pro such as Kong, Tara, etc. The reason why- I am NOT a wrestler! The match was not to debut my wrestling skills it was purely for entertainment, which I think it was. Considering I have never wrestled in my life and only had a few days to practice everything I am really proud of myself.
So you cannot judge and analyze as you would another wrestler. Its apples and oranges in my mind. Second, for it being my first match EVER and first time ever doing wrestling moves I am freaking proud of myself, I had fun, thought it looked good, and no one got hurt. Last I heard some people crying about wrestling should be reserved for “legit” wrestlers and “legit” matches. I have to say to that- PILLOW FIGHT MATCH. I have seen matches where literally all the girls were doing was hitting each other with pillows in lingerie. At least I was doing a cross body, splash, etc. Along with some fun campy stuff like my pin and entrance (which I loved).
But I was always told any press is good press and I gues the fact that people are still talking about it, and my entrance is a good thing! Needless to say I had fun, thought the match looked good, and I am proud of Sharmell and I…”
Morasca also took the time out to respond to those who commented on the blog, including the following:
“you are exactly right I was not there to be the new Gail Kim or any wrestler for that matter. We all know I had no experience before entering this arena. As for the haters I WILL post your blogs but only when they do NOT include foul language or names like bimbo, etc. There is a constructive way to state your place without sounding like lame. And I was approached by someone at TNA to join the team. I joined the team with them thinking I never wanted to wrestle. But seeing the athletes everyday in their craft I wanted to try also. I did have training, and by some incredible people but there was only so much time we had. Most of the time wrestlers train for at least a year before having a TV match, let alone a live one. Again I would love to see any of the haters try and do something they have never done before in front of a live crowd. I bet the same people who were getting their nuts in a twist are the same ones who would NEVER have the guts and bravery to set into the ring. Trust me no matter how much wrestling you watch it is in NO way the same when you set out into the ring.
No matter what happens I can say that in my lifetime I had a live TV wrestling match, and I am still very proud of myself. I have re watched the match many times and every time I watch I am very proud of myself for putting on an entertaining match. Yes I slap like a girl BUT I am.. And I will only get better.. Practice makes perfect.”
