- Former TNA Knockout Velvet Sky announced Friday she is launching her own clothing line, "Rated V." It's a co-ed apparel and accessories line designed by Velvet. The first item announced is a "Rated V Logo t-shirt," which will be available for purchase at tonight's Family Wrestling Entertainment show in Brooklyn. The product is also available online at Skysohigh.bigcartel.com .
Velvet commented on the project Friday: "This line will be close to my personal style and taste and reflect my lifestyle and fun loving nature. I like to mix it up, a little sporty, rocker, grunge, and casual, depending on my mood and the line will reflect all these styles."
- Kevin Nash's "Bad Boys of Wrestling Federation" will be traveling to Chile on December 4 for a tour running Dec. 6-9 in Santiago, Coquimbo, Copiapo, and Antofagasta. In addition to Nash, the current talent roster includes Roddy Piper, Sean Waltman (X-Pac), Scott Steiner, Billy Gunn, Rhino, Shawn Daivari, Chasyn Rance, Cody Hall, and the Beautiful People (Velvet Sky & Angelina Love).
Jerry Lawler was originally scheduled for the tour, but he will not be able to make it. Lawler appeared on Nash's first tour in Aruba the weekend before suffering a heart attack on WWE Raw TV last month. [ LINK: Event details at Facebook.com - http://on.fb.me/QPzXoh ]
