Another IFBB Pro in Wrestling?!

Apparently Zivile Raudoniene isn't the only IFBB pro competitor looking to be a part of the wrestling business. From what I've gather through various wrestling news websites, it looks like IFBB Pro Bikini competitor Kristal Lashley (formerly Kristal Marshall) will be returning to her wrestling roots, only this time joining the TNA roster.

(TNA's Newest Knockout?)

She was part of Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling (TNA)'s biggest pay-per-view of the year, Bound for Glory this past weekend, when her husband MMA Star "The Boss" Bobby Lashley took on and defeated Samoa Joe. She was also on last night's TNA iMPACT broadcast during the Matt Morgan vs Scott Steiner match. She is set to become a permanent character in the weeks to come, possibly being the manager of her husband.

So now, both major wrestling companies have an IFBB competitor a piece, one being a top figure champion and one that could make history in the pro bikini division. It will be interesting to see how this could affect the divisions in terms of marketing, promotion, and exposure, not to mention the ladies themselves. Best of luck to both of them in their respective compaines!! :)
