- Let me thank you for doing this interview for the "Pro Wrestling Interview Series Tour 2021".
Thank you so much, I really appreciate that you reached out to me!
- When and how did you get into Pro wrestling?
I got into Pro Wrestling through my brother who always watched it on TV back in the days when I was a child. I lost track of it for some years but continued to watch it again in 2015. In 2016, I was looking for a wrestling facility to start my own journey when finding Dockers Wrestling which should soon become my second home. I went there for a tryout, was sore as hell for a lot of days after that but returned to the training anyways and nowadays, I cannot imagine a life without my second family or without wrestling. It was never easy and everyone who's training can assure you that wrestling is hard work, but I always felt safe with Dockers and I'm really grateful for what they do for me and every other wrestling student.
- Do you have any previous experience with martial arts from before you became a wrestler or other sports you did?
I did a lot of sports here and there but never in terms of MMA etc. I really want to get into it in the future though!
- Can you still recall your first training sessions?
My first training was with Dockers Wrestling as I already mentioned. I have to admit, I was very nervous about the training and I wasn't in great shape in terms of fitness, but the coaches put me under their wing and assured me that at Dockers, everyone is welcomed and nobody expects me to be perfect during first try. After getting to know all the students and trainers and gaining my very first experiences, taking my first little bumps, doing my first rolls etc.,
I was so happy. Even though the training was incredibly hard and my body really hurt the following few days, they really had me on the hook. The entire group welcomed me like family and made sure every single person felt safe during training, which was very important to me. The entire dynamics, lifting each other up, motivating each other and being happy for one another about achievements really influenced my training on the long term and I'm glad that I stayed with Dockers Wrestling after that.
- How do you remember your first match, what was the feedback and what experience did you take from it?
My first match was against Luna Mani in 2018. It obviously wasn't great, no ones debut is I suppose. We gave it our best but looking at it now, we still had so much to learn. The feedback was very helpful though. Obviously, we were told how to improve in a lot of ways, which we did not take as negative but rather as very important. The feedback really helped us on our way and it still does every time we step into the ring. At least for me, feedback is everything and I'm thankful for every more experienced wrestler, taking the time to watch my performances and talk to me on how to improve.
- Do you have a ‚dream opponent‘ you want to fight above all others?
Not really. If I had to choose, I would probably pick Charlotte since she is one of the top female wrestlers in this world and I would really profit from her experience. There are also a lot of male wrestlers I'd love to be in the ring with one day, but honestly, every new opponent is different and I'm thankful for every opportunity to learn from them and improve.
- Do you have/ had any Wrestling idols Or Childhoodheroes?
I used to love Eddie Guerrero when I was watching wrestling back in the days. As a child, I did not really understand that he passed away in 2005 since I was super young, but the time I was able to watch him on TV, I was a big fan and even watching his matches nowadays really makes me excited. After that, I cannot really remember who I idolized unfortunately.
- What are you doing when you don't stand inside the ring?
When I'm not in the ring, I'm in school, finishing my A-level and now applying for university. And I'm the biggest Potterhead and way too busy collecting cool HP stuff and discussing about the fandom it with some friends.
Apart from that, I work out and watch a lot of wrestling as well of course Even when we don't train or when there is no show, the students from Dockers are always in contact and we meet up for fun other activities sometimes.
- When a booker or company from your Country or around the world will book you , where can they contact you?
They can contact me basically on every social media I have, Instagram is the best way to reach me though!
- Thank you very much for your time- I wish you much success at your next event´s .Thank you for your time! Stay well! Stay safe!And do you have some words for your fans at the end?
I'm just glad to get back in the ring as soon as the pandemic is over and continue doing what I love alongside the coolest people I know. I'm really looking forward to gaining more experience!
