A group of WWE and WCW wrestlers' daughters are starting a women's wrestling promotion.
According to a TMZ interview with Brittany Page, Diamond Dallas Page's daughter, she and Brooke Hogan (Hulk Hogan's daughter), Lacey Von Erich (Kerry Von Erich's daughter), Ariel Toombs (Roddy Piper's daughter) and Brigitte Van Damme (Jean-Claude Van Damme's daughter) plan to start a "women's league" of pro wrestling. If starting a wrestling promotion wasn't enough of a challenge, the group plan to compete with TNA.
"We have a project going on and we're basically starting a women's league. And it's gonna kinda go against Impact Wrestling, TNA. We're really excited about it. We have a couple surprises involved," Brittany Page said.
When she was asked about DDP and his involvement with the promotion, Brittany Page wasn't exactly clear.
"Well, he will be (involved) of course, just because people want to see the first generation versus the second," she said.
Page also mentioned that former TNA Knockout Christy Hemme will be part of the project, in a position “over talent.” Hemme was voted Knockout of the Year in 2006 and Pro Wrestling Illustrated ranked her 42nd in a list of the 50 best female singles wrestlers in 2008.
In a post on her Facebook page, Brooke Hogan talked about the promotion, but added a few more names to the mix: Guerrero and Beefcake.
DDP, Hulk Hogan and Roddy Piper all have worked for TNA. That common thread is interesting given the fact that their daughters want to start a promotion to go against the Nashville based promotion which previously employed their fathers.
