    I live in Arkansas. I grew up watching Mid-South and CWA (Memphis). I was impressed with Nora's ring skills, but she had an "it" factor that she seemed like a good person on the inside. I was impressed with her when she was featured on WWE Confidential. When she left WWE, I read an interview of her. I sent her a letter stating that I was sorry to see her leave and appreciated the good things she did for others. I am a Christian and have been turned off of WWE and TNA because of the raunch. Nora stood out. I did not ask for it, but she sent me an autographed picture. I was impressed. God bless her in her future endeavors.

    lool. I think you all need to meet Geno before you defend him. I have known him for a LONG time and he is no one you would want in your house. Check out his rap sheet, he is a career criminal and sociopath. He lies, steals and has hosed everyone he has ever known.I give it a year or two and then Nora will wake up, see that everything she had is gone and that will be that.

    "Reality" wrote his comment 1/2 hour after bar closing. People can change, including you. If you have personal resentments, I recommend forgivness- it will make you feel much better.

    Dear Nora, though we've never met I just want to send my congrads. I just read this on the 10th of August and was stunned. I want to thank you for you helped get through a rough period in my life back in '03 when I was 18 and in a hospital ward with an out of control obsessive compulsive problem. I began thinking of you and kind of fell in love. Silly of me to think I'd ever get a shot at meeting such a wonderful, beautiful woman like you but it helped me out.I even have gone and collected almost every published picture of you that I could, your beautiful smile and all. I'm happy for you and hope this guy treats you like a queen. I hope you and Geno will be happy since all good people deserve it. May God send light on you throughout your time together. I say thank you again and hope you'll always be blessed.

    Reality, I know that you can't stand the pain of seeing so much positivity but you didn't really have to read it, did you? Nora is very famous to her fans, and millions of people all over the world have heard of her. That IS reality. Your kind can't stand all positive responses so you have to throw your negativity in. But no matter what, Nora has commanded the respect, love, and admiration countless people - something which you obviously understand. I would MUCH rather see a lot of space given to a POSITIVE story rather than what Kim Kardashian is wearing or something equally pointless.Now that you've gotten attention, I want to say aside from that that I admire Nora so very much and always have. I believe in waiting until marriage and age 30 is fast approaching, but I know that I have to maintain patience like she has. She has always classy and strong and has always been (and will always be) one of my absolute favorite wrestlers. She is an excellent role model to young women and I wish her all the best that can be had. Congratulations to her!

    Who the heck paid off the Press to run this story? Did Geno's family hire a publicist or something? This is a guy who robbed a church, countless houses, friends and his own family...JUST LAST YEAR! Him and his drug dealing brother Vince have both been in and out of jail since they were kids, yet Geno suddenly found god? Didn't he do the same thing a few years ago only to go back and become a waste on society? A quick blurb I can understand on this couple, since Nora is sorta famous, but to dedicate an entire 1/2 page to them is just ridiculous.

    They are both really sweet people. I was honored to sing at their wedding. It was totally laid back and relaxed, just like them :)

    Although I never had the honor to meet the future Mrs. Benshoof I know that she has had some good times and bad in the business especially in regards to "The Houdini of Hardcore" I am glad to see her personal life has yielded the rewards that some one of her faith deserves :-) May God continue to guide you both with his light :-)
