According to the Wrestling Observer, Bruce Pritchard is not a huge fan of women's wrestling. This is the reason that some women have quit the organization. Since Bruce Pritchard has come into power, the Knockouts roster has dwindled in size while many names are being featured much less.
Talon's Take: Again, in this case it is hearsay but the change in how the women are being featured is evident. Since Pritchard became head of creative, Toxxin, Angelina Love, Velvet Sky, Traci Brooks and Winter left the organization. Sarita, Rosita have been rarely seen and certain names have been used much less than they used to be.
One thing I know is that Dixie Carter has a role for the Knockouts on the roster. While the importance of the division may have dropped in the past year, don't expect it to be eliminated while Dixie Carter has some say. In the end, the buck stops with her.
