Source: WWEWWE's website has a new interview up with former WWE Diva Sharmell. Sharmell discusses The WCW Nitro Girls - a dance group she was involved in years ago during the Monday Night Wars.
"We had to be on point and perfect every night because we knew the whole world was going to see it. And every week we had a different [live] audience, so we never knew what to expect. All of that just added to the excitement of performing on Nitro. The electricity from the fans, the desire to be perfect … that's what made the Nitro Girls so memorable."
"I don't think WCW management realized that the Nitro Girls would eventually become as popular as we did. When we held that contest, there were a lot of girls that really wanted to be Nitro Girls. We had the competitions in different cities and the auditions were packed, but we were fortunate to get Stacy. She won fair and square, and no one could have predicted the impact she would have on wrestling and pop culture."
Sharmell feels The Nitro Girls could have a place in WWE today.
"I really think we were ground-breaking, especially in sports-entertainment.We had calendars, magazines and videos of our own. We really made an impact. There are a number of talented Divas competing today, but I really feel that a group like the Nitro Girls could bring an extra level of excitement to WWE."
