The IInspiration Reveal They Were Inspired By The Beautiful People
“Being able to be a feminine and beautiful woman and still be really strong and independent.”
After winning the Knockouts Tag Titles on their IMPACT debut at Bound For Glory, The Iinspiration instantly made themselves at home.
And it seems like they were always destined for IMPACT, as Jessica McKay and Cassie Lee revealed how they were inspired by TNA’s Beautiful People.
In conversation with Darren Paltrowitz, The Iinspiration gave props to the stable of Angelina Love, Velvet Sky, Madison Rayne, and even Lacey Von Erich, saying:
"It was actually The Beautiful People. I'm going back in the day, I used to watch it on YouTube because the internet wasn't that big back then. As a teenager, that was pretty cool to see, because they were these sexy, beautiful women with these incredible bodies, but they're also so different as well. They each had their own individuality, and they could kick your ass in the ring.
"So that was probably the earliest memory where I was like, ‘Oh, wow, this is - I want to do that. I want to be like that because that's a strong woman right there. So absolutely. I have to say their entrance is the first memory that I really kind of go back to,” McKay said.
Cassie added, “It's actually the exact same and exactly what Jess just said. So I'm just gonna repeat her. But I like that, being able to be a feminine and beautiful woman and still be really strong and independent. That is, and pun intended, that is super inspiring to me.”
