TNA Women’s Knockout Champion Miss Tessmacher, recently had to clarify comments she made about her former employer WWE concerning their use of female wrestlers. She was asked on Facebook of a possible return to the organization and responded with the following:

“Why would I want to go back to wwe where they have 3 min matches that typically have no meaning. The women aren’t utilized to the potential they bring. They aren’t cared about or a priority.”

Miss Tessmacher would follow this up by adding: “Let me clear this up. My comment that was said of the WWE Divas was not to discredit the girls in any way. They are all spectacular and tremendous athletes. My opinion is based on the fact I strongly feel they are not used to their own capabilities and talents. I do think if they were believed in more as the Knockouts where from the company they work for they could showcase themselves better as all around athletes and not just a character or gimmick. I do believe the Knockouts division is the best in the bis and we are used to our potential. At Impact Wrestling women’s wrestling does matter!”

Miss Tessmacher (real name Brooke Adams) first came under WWE’s radar when she tried out for the Diva’s Search contest but failed at becomming to make the top 8. She would instead be offered a developmental contract and worked down in Deep South Wrestling (DSW) for training. In 2007 Miss Tessmacher would debut on the re-branded ECW, joining Kelly Kelly and Layla as the Extreme Expose where they had weekly dance segments. Later in that same year, Tessmacher would be released by WWE and would join TNA Wrestling three years afterwards in 2010.

You can see Miss Tessmacher weekly on TNA Impact Wrestling on Spike TV each Thursday night at 8/7pm EDT/PST.
