TNA will most likely begin to push her due to her role on the HBO series Treme. That's if they push that point, as I just happened to be reading a new story about her announcing her appearance the second time she was on the screen and put two and to together. She wasn't bad and actually did a full nude scene where her body was banging hard. And it's more than likely a repeat role, as she had lines and a connection with one of the main characters.
As far as pushing her goes, I see them repeating the Referee Shane Sewell storyline where some underused knockout, more than likely Serita and/or Rosita will ignite the wrestler inside of her and she takes action and eventually is fired and rehired as a knockout by Brooke Hogan. Just like Sewell was fired by Cornette only to be hired as a wrestler. It could work, as Taryn is no worse than Christie Hemme, a young Madison Rayne, or Lacey Von Erich, when they first started. But at least she has some experience on the mic, which would put her a little ahead of that pack.
As far as women's wrestling goes, or the death of it, look no further than WWE. With the years of hiring super models, beauty queens, and centerfolds to be center stage on the most watches tv program, (and under utilizing them greatly) it is WWE who has poisoned the once great genre. Due to how WWE has portrayed it to less than religious wrestling fans, people no longer respect a great women's wrestling match. Hell, when was the last time that the Diva's title was defended AT Wrestlemania? Hell, when was the last time that it was defended on ppv? So before you point at Bruce Pritchard as being the culprit, look at how WWE has pushed sex or substance lately and is letting even more actually female wrestlers walk away from their ring without any challenge whatsoever. TNA has at least tried to retain their Knockouts when they want to leave and didn't job them out on their way out of the door or make a mockery of their existence the way they did with Victoria The Extreme Loser, Piggy James, or even ho much of a disgrace they are making out of Beth Phoenix before she leaves. But then again, it's so easy to blame TNA when WWE is the juggernaut that it is.
