I caught up with The Allure (Angelina Love, Velvet Sky and Mandy Leon) to discuss their in-ring debut at the Best in the World pay-per-view this Friday against Women of Honor World Champion Kelly Klein and Jenny Rose in a tag match, their goals in WOH, their message for the fans, and more.
Kevin Eck: It’s taken The Allure nearly three months since your debut at Madison Square Garden to have your first match. Why wait so long?
Velvet Sky: Because coming in and wrestling on Day 1 is lame. Where’s the excitement in that? Ever hear of storytelling? Guess this fan base should get familiar.
Angelina Love: We always said we would decide the time and the place and that’s exactly what we’ve done. We could take as much or as little time as we want. We’ve just been enjoying putting everyone on blast.
Mandy Leon: Exactly. The Allure decides when and where. Period.
KE: The Allure has shaken up Women of Honor to say the least. But what happens to The Allure if Angelina and Mandy lose to Kelly and Jenny at Best in the World on Friday?
ML: We don’t lose. Next question.
KE: What is The Allure’s ultimate goal in Women of Honor? Is about the title, or is there more to it than that?
AL: Our goal in Women of Honor is to show everyone that believe it or not, you can in fact be a sexy woman and still know how to wrestle. I’m a six-time world champion, Velvet is a two-time world champion, and Mandy is the living and breathing reason that Women of Honor even exists. We wear sexy clothes, we put on lipstick and we kick ass. Plain and simple. And yes, we know the gold will be in our group soon enough -- where it belongs.
ML: We will dominate and look good doing it. Just because we wear lipstick doesn’t mean we can’t kick your ass. We will kick your ass and we will look good doing it. The gold belongs with The Allure -- end of story.
VS: This division needed a shakeup. It’s about time, Women of Honor.
KE: ROH fans have made it clear that they stand with Kelly and others in Women of Honor and not the three of you. Do you have a message for the fans?
ML: I don’t know where you are getting your information from, Kevin, but clearly The Allure are the fan favorites. Message for the fans? Yes. Hey, Allure gang! Please tell this fool to get familiar. Nobody gets down with a fraud of a champion.
AL: From the majority of what we see, everyone stands behind us because no one likes whiny, entitled babyfaces, champion or not.
VS: To the select few who don’t stand with us, you’re all so boring. You wouldn’t know exciting if it smashed you in the face.
KE: Mandy, as Angelina alluded to earlier, you have been part of the foundation of Women of Honor. So why have you aligned with Angelina and Velvet when you always had exemplified what Women of Honor is all about? Are you jealous of Kelly Klein’s opportunities and success?
ML: What a joke. This interview is over. Byeeee!
