- Thank you so much for your time, we are always delighted to be able to introduce
talents for the "Pro Wrestling Interview Series Tour 2020".


- When and how did you get into Indy Pro wrestling?

 

My first contact with wrestling was when I watched a show in December 2015. 

I had no idea what wrestling was I I had never watching it before. I went to the show because a friend invited me to go and I didn't had anything else to do that night (and I like beer, no need to turn that down) .

 I had absolutely no idea what I was going to see and when the show started I thought it was kinda weird. But when the show went on I got more and more into the stories and I really wanted to be on that stage! After the show I went to the current owner of the fed (story wise) and asked how I should do to start training. She told me to send in my resume and a month or two later I started training. 

 

 




- Can you still recall your first training sessions?

 

Yeah. I wanted to die every second. I've never done anything that hard, and I used to do triathlons 

 

 



- Do you have any previous experience with martial arts from before you became a wrestler or other sports you did?

 

No. I've always been active but my main focus growing up was into horseback riding and I'm also an educated equestrian. 

When I was 18 I started doing cheerleading and focusing on the stunting parts (that means just the acrobatics : The pyramids and tossing) . We were a coed stunt group (girls+boys) traveling around Europe competing and I was also attending the cheerleading world's in 2012 in Orlando. 

 

When I started wrestling I just ended the cheerleading after 10 years and was trying out a lot of different sports after that, biking, trail running, cross country skiing, triathlon.... It was fun but I never really got hooked.. 

So I had the time and need to do something else. So the timing when I found wrestling was perfect

 

 



- When and against who did you have your debut?Were you nervous?

 

In December 2017, Against Espen Olsen. And Norwegian wrestler. 

I was sooo nervous, but Espen is such a pro. He helped me through it. 

 




-  Do you have a ‚dream opponent‘ you want to fight above all others?

 

Nah, my dream opponent is a person that is not full of themselves, are nice to hang around, that I can communicate with before the show and that have the same need and wishes to do a good show and give the crowd a great evening as I want. 

I do wrestling because it's fun. It's not my full-time job, it's my hobby and I 100% do it because I think its the best thing I can do with my spare time. I meet a lot of awesome people and get to travel to different places. 

 



- Do you have Pro Wrestling idols, maybe people who have influenced your in-ring style? Or Childhoodheroes?

 

No childhood heroes because I never watched wrestling growing up. 

Now I just like to watch wrestling to get inspiration and new moves to try out. 

 

 



- What are you doing when you are not in the ring ?

 

I'm getting stressed out when I don't have stuff planned 

I work within e-commerce and digital marketing. I do a lot of crossfit. I also do a lot of photography, both behind and in front of the camera. My modeling alias is Miss Metnal and my main focus is Latexfashion. I also create and design most of the latex outfits i wear myself. 

I debuted doing burlesque in November and hopefully I can do that again this year as well. 

 




- Mainstream Pro Wrestling. WWE or AEW, whats your favorite?

 

None, right now I only watch Impact and Nwa powerrr. 

 

 



- Wrestling Fans loves funny or thrilling road stories. Do you have one for us you can share?

 

 

Haha! I love being on the road with my GBG Wrestling - family.️

One time when we had a show in Denmark and we traveled home from the show we were going to Frederikshavn when the ferry to Gothenburg were leaving. Unfortunately we put Fredrikshamn in the GPS (which is also the Swedish name) but the GPS took the town located in Finland, which means we drowe more than 1 hour in the wrong direction. When we noticed we turned around and drowe in almost 180 km /h the whole way, and actually made the ferry.

 



- When a booker or company from your Country or arround the world will book you where can they contact you?

 

Through my Facebook or Instagram page.

Also my email betty.rose.prowrestler@gmail.com 

 



-  I wish you much success and Thank you for your time! Do you have some words for your fans?

 

 

I'm the one that should be thanking 

 

Thank you so much for the support! Without you: Me and every other wrestler could not could not be doing this️ 

Keep attending the shows, drink beer, spread love and buy merch
