    Well guys she is a “TRAINED WRESTLER” and actually I remember her from ANTM she was the one who had that bad skin rash on her face. She may just have to brush up her in-ring skills since her days on top model.

  • @Kakarotto Amen.

    If you are going to have a chop contest to prove that you are tough enough. try “Kenta Kobashi” chops.

  • America’s Next Top Model. Really? Really?

    Just so you know, not every model can be like Trish Stratus: started off as a fitness model but busted her ass in the ring to become one of the best divas of all time. If you’re a female and you want to be a pro wrestler, you have to know how to work in the ring.

    So Michelle Deighton, are you going to be like Trish Stratus or are you going to be like (God forbid) Jenna Morasca?
