Speaking of TNA wrestling, the promotion signed a deal with Playboy in 2009 and TNA Knockout Traci Brooks was chosen to pose nude. The pictorial was never published in the actual magazine, but their online division.
It's well known that WWE has, in the past, allowed their Divas to pose for Playboy and at one point even pushed their female superstars towards the famous nude magazine. This makes it unsurprising that so many of the Divas have come through the ranks at WWE and, following their departures, have been approached by entertainment companies who are looking to cash in on the sex appeal that WWE created during their time in the ring.
Christy is famous for her guillotine leg drop where she landed in the split position and added the use of the turnbuckle into this following her switch to TNA, but she is also famous for appearing nude for a 2005 edition of Playboy magazine.
She posed for the adult magazine in 2007 and, similar to Christy Hemme, didn't receive as much fanfare as the Divas who posed before her. For that reason, when discussing the Divas who have been in Playboy, Ashley Massaro frequently slips our mind.
While the deal never happened, several WWE Superstars or Divas posed for the Playboy magazine. Vince McMahon is known to try his hands out in different things as witnessed by his involvement in the football league, XFL.
During a recent interview with WrestlingInc, Anthony Anzaldo, former manager of WWE Hall of Famer and 'The Ninth Wonder of the World' Chyna, revealed that Vince McMahon wanted to put the WWE Championship on Chyna on the condition that she can't model for Playboy. However, Chyna rejected the offer and chose to be a part of the Playboy magazine.
The futuristic moves come almost five years after Hefner's death and two years since the last legacy print magazine hit the newsstands. Staging its digital reinvention for the next wave of internet innovation, which technologists call Web3, is the next big challenge.
\"The magazine was one product of the company. But it was really that rabbit head that's worth billions and billions of dollars and not replicable,\" Playboy CEO Ben Kohn told CNBC in a recent interview.
WrestleMania VII simply did not work out that way. For a variety of reasons, ticket sales for WrestleMania VII never went beyond the normal interest for a regular house show at the Sports Arena. The country was in the midst of the Gulf War, which stretched from Aug. 2, 1990, to Feb. 28, 1991, and tensions were high. Security concerns were serious enough that some questioned if Super Bowl XXV should even be played on Jan. 27, 1991. 153554b96e
