Former WWE diva Cherry (Kara Drew) was released from WWE in August, and she says there is a lot more she can offer in pro wrestling than what she was allowed to show on WWE TV.
"That was just a character," Drew told Tommy Fierro on the Who's Slamming Who podcast. "I am capable of doing a lot more in a different way."
Drew says she was limited by her character as the valet to Deuce and Domino in WWE, but she's continuing to improve in the ring on the independent scene with an eye on TNA.
Asked about the TNA knockouts division, Drew said, "I watched it before my career with WWE," and she's a fan of the work done by Angelina Love and Velvet Sky in the Beautiful People group.
Now back on the independent scene, Drew is convinced there is a dip in interest for independent wrestling. "Wrestling is at a lull right now," she said. "We are at our deepest point at the moment. There aren't that many shows going on and there aren't as many big crowds."
Whether it's the lack of new talent or a saturation of the wrestling market, Drew hopes independent wrestling can make a turnaround when the audience level has fallen off.
