Jamie Jones: These Divas are strong (in the ratings)

— Here are the notes and news items from the world of pro wrestling: “Total Divas” is a total success — so far. The E! reality show featuring WWE wrestlers and personalities had strong television ratings in its first episode.

A press release from E! heralded the show as “the most-watched series debut since last year’s summer-time premiere, ‘Married to Jonas.’” “Total Divas” airs Sun-day nights at 10.

• A former Dirty Bird wants to be a wrestler. Quinn Ojinnaka, who was an offensive lineman for the Atlanta Falcons, has embarked on a pro wrestling career. He played seven years in the NFL and has the size you would expect for a former NFL guard at 6 feet, 5 inches and 300 pounds.

The Local Corner: TWA Friday Night Brawl is at 8 p.m. at the TWA Arena off Reed Road in north Whitfield County, about three miles north of the bypass. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for ages 6 to 12; senior citizens 60 and older with proof of age will be admitted for $3. Kids younger than 6 will be admitted free. Any military member with proper identification will be admitted free. If it’s your birthday, you will be admitted free.

Renegade Championship Wrestling is at 8 p.m. Saturdays at 806 Second Ave. in Chatsworth.
