When and why did you decide that you wanted to be a wrestler yourself?
I always loved wrestling growing up! My brother would often watch the shows and in high school I swore I would become a wrestler but after graduation I became a mother. After my divorce I needed to feel that sense of purpose wrestling gave me and discovered independent wrestling shows. I became so immersed that I would dress up to events which caught the eye of Gino Caruso for ECPW and I started as a manager. Eventually I began training and 7 years later I am still doing my thing in the ring.
Do you remember your first training session and who trained you so far?
Not really but I do remember training with Fuego Calderon who would push me to my limits! I remember feeling so sore and in so much pain but enjoying everything I had learned from him. I usually train myself but I do often like to pick the brains of veterans who often give great advice about the business.
How do you recall your first match? And what was it like to wrestle in front of an live crowd for the first time?
My first match was in Brooklyn, I wasn’t ready to wrestle but I didn’t want to look like a chump so I did what I had to! I had been a manager for Fuego and my bestie Kash Camacho. I was so nervous and forgot some spots but the guys we wrestled were consummate professionals and they were able to cover up any mistakes! They were kind and really boosted my confidence.
Do you have Pro Wrestling idols, maybe people who have influenced your in-ring style? Or Childhoodheroes?
I think most find it weird that males have really inspired me to wrestle! Shawn Michaels is my hero. From being flamboyant and having amazing charisma I knew I wanted to be like him. Then there was Chyna and I knew that women would one day change the way we view women’s wrestling. She was a true pioneer and I’m sure she would be proud of knowing her influence had built the women’s division into what it is today.
Did you have matches that will always stay a highlight for you?
I think wrestling my fiancé was a highlight for me simply because no one knew at the time we were a couple. Trigger and I have known each other my whole career but it was only three years ago that we had a relationship and out of it we built our tag team Gunz n Rozez. I’m proud to have been a tag team champion with him. The promotion didn’t last long but we did prove to ourselves that we earned that championship.
Let´s say you can pick any 3 opponents (male and female) for an Fatal Four Way Match who would that be and why?
I would safely say Stan Stylez, Raena Sky (who is an absolute sweetheart) and Nikki Addams (one more time)
Can you tell us an interesting funny or thrilling road story?
I think being known for stepping on Tony Atlas’s face is the best thing to ever happen to me.
When a booker or company from your Country or around the world will book you where can they contact you?
I always monitor my Facebook and my email firstname.lastname@example.org
Is there anything else you would like to let the World Wrestling Fans and your fans know?
I also have a beauty vlog called Wrestling With Beauty where I do wrestling inspired makeup tutorials. Each look is inspired by a wrestler and is a labor of love. It is my way of shouting out wrestlers and peers in the business so everyone is a constant inspiration to me.
