There are actually THREE new wrestlers in the TNA Knockout division. Shantelle Taylor, Daizee Haze and… CHEERLEADER MELISSA ???
According to PWInsider, a match taped for “Impact” that will air Thursday night saw Cheerleader Melissa defeat SHIMMER and ROH regular Daizee Haze. Melissa was the babyface. However, Melissa ALSO wrestles under the hood as Riesha, the evil spokeswoman/tag team partner for Awesome Kong.
Is this a one-time only deal or the start of a split-personality angle? Time will tell.
OPINION: If anyone can pull it off the split-personality angle it is Melissa. However, with Dustin Rhodes/Black Reign and Eric Young/Super Eric already doing the same thing, it would be overkill.
