– TNA officials are said to very upset with the comments Lacey Von Erich made regarding former performer Angelina Love in an interview published yesterday in the Miami Herald. The word going around is that Von Erich was ordered by management to personally contact Love and apologize for the comments she made about her.
The TNA newcomer had several negative things to say about Love — based on what she heard about her from the TNA locker room. She said, “[Angelina] wasn’t a good fit for it in my opinion. I thought that everybody was going to be, `Oh no. Angelina is gone,’ but not one person said that. Nobody really missed her that much. I feel like I can fill the shoes that I’m supposed to. TNA told me this role was made for me, and I feel the same way. I’ve never met Angelina before in my life. After what some people have said, I don’t know if I want to.”
It’s also been indicated that Von Erich did not make a good first impression in her debut at last week’s television taping in Orlando, which aired Thursday night on Spike. The broadcast saw Von Erich align herself with “The Beautiful People,” effectively replacing Love in the group. While it’s been noted that Love herself wasn’t particularly popular among those in the TNA locker room, many feel the comments made by Von Erich were completely unnecessary considering she just debuted for the company.
Lacey wrote the following on Facebook yesterday afternoon: “I hope everyone enjoyed the show last night! Angelina Love was a great wrestler and I hope I do well filling her shoes! I wish her all the best in her career! Thank u all for ur support!”
