NEW “HEMME POWERED” COLUMN

hemme.jpegBy Christy Hemme

Being a women in the wrestling business means you need to wear a thick skin. Sometimes your skin gets so thick, vulnerability and willingness to give all of yourself hardens to the cement of protection. When I first got into the business I could feel a deep passion for something so special that I had never felt before. I gave everything I had to give to this new found love. The same way you do when you fall in love with a man or women.

Well I have to be honest… I had never let myself fall in love with a man before. I grew up with one of those strong women attitudes that I could do everything myself. Don’t carry my bags, don’t open my door, don’t pay me a compliment, I don’t need it because I don’t need anyone to help, care about or love me. Even though I could consciously keep myself from being in a truly intimate relationship with a man I didn’t realize I could fall for this secret world that we all love, wrestling.

My departure from WWE was on my own terms because I stuck to my guns on my morals and values as a human being. I knew in my gut that it would be the end, but I also knew that carrying guilt for knowingly doing something against what I believed wasn’t worth getting ahead. Leaving broke my heart… but doing the right thing is something I will always be proud of.

Going to TNA, I went in with all intentions of not letting my experience at WWE effect what I still felt compelled to do. I could feel the heart of this company was good and held an unspeakable magic. I unknowingly had the outwardly reaction of a guarded rebounder. I never lost my passion because I don’t believe you can when it is a part of your being… but I did bury it under my thick skin. It was so obvious to me that everyone could sense my protective layer, but at the same time I felt paralyzed in allowing love to escape my pores because having your heart broken feels like you lose a part of yourself.

Life is so full of surprises. My heart was recently broken once again. Surprisingly, my recent feeling of loss gave me a unexpected gift. This heartbreak shattered the protective skin I used as a wall from my emotions, allowing me to connect more than ever before. Sometimes it takes something really big to knock down the wall of protection you create and show you where you are. My feelings of loss were only the exertion of energy it takes to protect myself from the unknown. My wall is GONE and I feel so humbled to be more open, eager, hopefull, excited and passionate than I have in my entire life.

My passion for wrestling is exploding from being held for so long. I do have to say, sitting on the sidelines has been extremely beneficial. Its like I spent all that time downloading info that I can now deliver and express in a way I couldn’t keeping the wall I did. I’ve started training again, and have to give HUGE thank you’s to AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and Jimmy Rave… hurting has never felt so good!

It was never really my bag to just be the hot girl anyways…

Christy Hemme sizzles in ‘Loaded’ Magazine, Signed ‘Fallen Angels’ Prints for Sale

christyhemme.jpgTNA KNOCKOUT CHRISTY HEMME IS SEE-THRU AND TOPLESS IN “LOADED”

Christy Hemme, valet for the Rock ‘n Rave Infection, has a painfully sexy photoshoot in UK magazine ‘Loaded’. Christy has posed in men’s magazines before, notably Playboy back as a WWE Diva. Christy made the mistake of getting serious about wrestling back in 2004 at the same time that WWE decided to clean their house of women wrestlers and build the Diva division. Hemme spent two days at the OVW training camp before she recieved her walking papers. The decision by WWE didn’t make sense then and still doesn’t make sense today.

Christy Hemme may not be the Knockouts top performer in the ring, but she does bring her personality and drive to each match; each appearence by Hemme in the ring is rememerable and entertaining. Hemme overcame her commen sense telling her to run in her match with Kong and turned in an exciting, if one-sided, bout (Kong Bombed). Christy is also flexible on par with SHIMMER MsChif, no small thing. But, there is no way a person can forget just how gorgeous this fiesty Knockout really is.

Along with the pictorial there’s a mainly sex-related interview with the twenty-seven year old with such questions as: Have you been tempted to swing both ways?, What wrestling moves work for you in the bedroom, and How would you seduce a man?

New Hemme Powered Column: One Day In Sturgis…

Christy Hemme(Note: Christy Hemme recently returned from the annual Sturgis Bike Rally in South Dakota. Hemme makes the trip out to the rally each year.)

One day in Sturgis…

There is a place that carries “special” in the air. Spoors of special that are limited to only once a year, if you visit. Imagine if you will; we are riding in the morning of a beautiful August day on your choice of Harley-Davidson, chalk full of all the fixings you please. My arms lay, relaxed on chrome drag bars that sit comfortable on a black Dyna Low-rider. Our very alive bikes sing Harley’s patented sound, as that and the sound of the wind passing our ears is all we can hear. Our hair holds on to its follicles, just to keep up with the pace of the bike and our will to get somewhere. In the middle of this nowhere, without even a sign to guide us, we feel it… somewhere… and close to the Sturgis Bike Rally.

You feel that “special” air melt into every pore on your body. Even our bikes purr louder as the reuniting asphalt, kisses them hello. The instant you feel the change in the air, you glance around at the beauty of the green trees glowing brighter. We draw closer to the town turned city as friends from all over the world are being carried by the same enticing gust of wind. You nod your head to each person who passes or you pass, showing a mutual respect for them and the road. As you slow to the traffic that runs through Main St., a popular street that flows directly through the town, you look around knowing that you have 750,000 people that you can call friends.

Main Street is lined with thousands of beautiful bikes, cuddled as tightly as they can. People walk casually on the street wearing whatever they please, leather chaps, bikinis, bandanas, jeans and scantily clad anything. The less the better in this August summer heat. Vests with patches showing the other rallies people have been to, give you the impression that this is its own little world and a club that you gave yourself initiation just by showing up. Even this early in the day, the bars are filled with people enjoying the free flowing drinks. Vendors are set up in front of the bars (open only once a year for the rally). Clothing and Harley gear lay on tables and stand proud on hangers, smiling bright, hoping to have a home by the end of the rally. Flavored steam from the fresh cooked food rises under the tents and flows to your nose. The food, fresh air and smell of bike exhaust mixes just perfectly… that oh so fantastic signature smell of Sturgis.

We stop at my favorite bar in town One-Eyed Jacks, to meet my girls (The Purrfect Angelz) and our longtime friends and family in the biker industry, for a drink followed by a ride. Sitting on the wooden deck you enjoy a cold beer, laughing with my already rowdy bunch. With our cohorts ready to take on the roads, we make your way back over to our bikes. Yelping loudly and causing a big scene we take off in a lined group. Outside of the city the landscape opens up to a large green fields. You prepare yourself for curves ahead that weave their way through mountains to a little city called Spearfish. The curves are met by large walls of rock on either side. In between the rock and the road are pine trees and streams of water that stop to feed the lush vegetation. The clear day’s light, spills over the rock walls, to pet your face with warm ray’s of the waking afternoon. As you lean into the curves of the road, your best friend and bike’s exhaust lightly grazes the air skimming the asphalt.

Coming up on the small old town of Spearfish, the nostalgia of the well lived buildings stand tall in the valley they sit in. Big welcome signs, cute little boutiques, ice cream parlors and casino’s create a warm inviting atmosphere. Our posse decides to stop to have lunch in one of the beautiful old hotels, charming with its antique nuances. As we get back on our bike’s we ride in Sturgis’s surrounding adventure until the sun starts to sink in the sky. The air has cooled just enough to be absolutely perfect. It feels very still, as if bracing itself for the nights shenanigans. Quiet and calm it seams to not fight you as you ride, but move with you to enjoy the last few moments of dusk till dark. As we ride to the top of the hill headed back into Sturgis, a view of golden oranges melt around the trees, begging for us to draw closer.

We ride back through Sturgis passing it. With a growing line of bikes, we are on way to the Buffalo Chip, an enormous bar set in a huge field that draws over 30,000 people to it huge concerts. Playing tonight is Velvet Revolver, and by the way we have backstage passes that give us free drinks all night long and the front row VIP view of standing stage left, close enough you can practically smell Slash and Scott Weiland! I LOVE Velvet Revolver!! After a great show we make our way to another huge outdoor bar right next to the Buffalo Chip. The biggest biker bar in the world to be exact, The Full Throttle. Fully stocked with food vendors, clothing and souvenirs, liquor and beer, girls dancing, carnival rides, bike builders, concert stages and live music, mechanical bull riding (and yes, we are getting on that bull!!), a bike burn out pit and of course tons of people ready to just have a great time.

As the perfect day leads to its inevitable end, we all have only a couple hundred feet walk to the cabins we rented on the Full Throttle property. I will let you imagine whatever ending you like, but the only part I will give you is that as you sit on the porch of your small wooden cabin, take a moment to lay your head back, look up at the stars and indulge yourself with a deep breath. Inhaling and appreciating the sweetness of perfection and this very “special” air fills your satisfied lungs, carried only by…The Sturgis Bike Rally.
