What made you become a pro wrestler? I think my love of wrestling began when I was 6/7, because I was supposed to be asleep but would be watching wcw in my room on a Friday night. As I grew up, I was always a performer, doing theatre and singing, I still watched wrestling, and eventually found out there was a school near my mum's...I went along and never looked back.
Do you remember your first training session and who trained you so far? My first training session was in Swanley, with IPW (at the time), I spent the session being taught bumps and basics by Jimmy Havoc and rattling my head on the mat. My main trainers have been: Jimmy Havoc Tom Chamberlain Jimmy Starr Matt Walters I've also trained with: Ashley Reed Mad Man Manson Julia Knight Zack Sabre Jr Johnny Storm Eddie Edwards Nick Aldis Mickey James Scarlett Darrell Allen RJ Singh Finley Grado Ricochet
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 a mixed tag, myself and Furio(Sora at the time) against Chuck Cyrus and Liberty (Alice Walker), it was amazing being in front of a live audience. Coming from a theatre background, the crowd didn't worry me, but I was so nervous about forgetting the match! I was absolutely awful, but everyone else looked after me out there.
Which other Wrestler would you love to fight in the future? So many! If I have to choose one though, I'd love to wrestle Scarlett, now that I actually know what I'm doing and don't need walking through every step!
Do you have Pro Wrestling idols, maybe people who have influenced your in-ring style? Or Childhoodheroes? AJ Styles has always been someone I've admired, although I could never be that springy, his ring psychology, selling and storytelling are amazing, bringing it a bit closer to home, for character work, I take a lot of influence from Manson, and for style, I try to take what I can from ZSJ.
Do you remember your first match that you seen as a fan? It's bad, but I don't, we are talking about 20ish years ago though. There are lots of matches, but none of them are the first. One of the first things I clearly remember from watching wrestling, is Brett Hart's promo when he went to WCW. My parents weren't big on wrestling, so it wasn't until I was much older that I actually got to attend shows. I remember watching Gail Kim and thinking she was the most amazing woman ever(apart from Xena warrior princess, lol)
Did you have matches that will always stay a highlight for you? Yes, although it's more for who I wrestled and what I learnt as opposed to anything I did in the match. My matches against Julia and Nikki, I wouldn't show the world, but I took so much forward from them that they were really turning points for me.
What do you do when you are not a female wrestler? I'm a powerlifter and a mum these days, and redoing my PT level 4.
Can you tell us an interesting funny or thrilling road story? Not so much an interesting road story as I don't tend to have others in the car with me, but when I broke both knees wrestling, the 2 weeks I spent in hospital were brilliant, I had drs, nurses and other patients coming to talk to me purely about wrestling, had to sign a few autographs, got told that they'd sort out the guy I'd been wrestling (not his fault at all by the way, just a freak occurrence), but mostly, it really showed how much of a family we gain through wrestling because guys and girls from wrestling came to see me every day.

Thank you very much for your time, do you have some words for your fans? Just thanks for sticking with me through the years, great things are coming on the horizon...and...don't try this at home...
