Velvet Sky believes that 'The Allure' is going to give the Women Of Honor division a big boost.
It was at New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring Of Honor's G1 Supercard show at Madison Square Garden last month that the duo known as 'The Beautiful People' consisting of former TNA Knockouts Champions Angelina Love and Velvet Sky made their presence felt when they joined forces with Mandy Leon to beat down the current Women Of Honor World Champion Kelly Klein. Love, Sky and Leon are now known as 'The Allure' and Velvet Sky will be taking on managerial duties of the group while Angelina and Mandy handle the in-ring competition.
Velvet Sky recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TV Insider and addressed the comparisons between The Allure and The Beautiful People 2.0.. Sky made it clear that there can not be a revival of The Beautiful People 2.0. without Madison Rayne who is signed to IMPACT Wrestling. Sky continued by saying that viewers and fans have only seen the group showing face but have yet to see what they will and can do in the ring.
"Everyone keeps comparing The Allure to the Beautiful People,” Sky said. “…It’s not the same concept. Adding Mandy to the group, she is a perfect fit. She looks great, she can definitely hold her own in the ring. We’re not doing the Beautiful People 2.0 without Madison [Rayne], which seems to be the consensus that is out there among certain people in the business and wrestling fans as well. That’s fine, but nobody has seen what we are capable of doing yet because there hasn’t been a match yet. There has been no in-ring action yet. You’ve kind of seen The Allure show up here and there randomly throughout Women of Honor matches to make our mark on the division. We’ve announced our presence. We are a strong, dominant, female, kick ass type of team that is definitely going to make an impact in Ring of Honor and shake up the Women of Honor division.”
Velvet Sky minced no words when stating that she feels the Women Of Honor division was on life support and that The Allure is bringing life back to the division.
“Lots of haters, subtweeters, group texting, shade thrown our way, jealousy we’ve seen,” Sky said. “It’s funny because it doesn’t matter to us. It doesn’t trigger us at all. We just sit back and say, ‘Wow, look at the powerful buzz the three of us have created just by joining forces together’. It just makes sense." She said. "You know as well as I do that division was on life support. We are breathing much needed life into the Women of Honor. Wrestling fans from Ring of Honor are like night and day from what we are used to at IMPACT Wrestling. Ring of Honor fans seem to be strictly about wrestling and in-ring action and physicality, which is fine because it is a wrestling company after all. But it’s not all wrestling all the time when you need to have a little bit of sizzle with your steak. The steak is already there. We’re just here to add some sizzle to it.”
