Andy Steven: Thanks for taking this time out once again to take part in this interview for www.PWMania.com.
It was a huge shock to all fans around the world to hear that you were eliminated from the 2007 WWE Diva Search competition as you were one of the fan favourites. How did you hear about your elimination, were you expecting it and how were you feeling?
Jessica Hatch: When I found out I was at a local pub in town hanging out with my friends watching Monday Night Raw on one TV and the Dallas Cowboys on the other TV. I was waiting patiently to see the clip of us on Monday Night Raw. Being that Texas is a different time zone the posting of the elimination was on the WWE website before I saw the clip. I got a phone call from my webmaster while waiting to see us on TV and he said to me, “Have you checked the website?” I said to him “no, who got eliminated with confidence it wasn’t me.” He said,” It’s not good.” I thought he might be messing with me and being that I was surrounded by a lot of people within the Pub, I said hold on and I quickly walked outside so I could hear him better. I then said,” Are you serious?” He said, “Yes.” I was in shock and didn’t really know what to say. I definitely didn’t expect it. I was very hurt and frustrating more than anything because I had been working my butt off to get myself out there for all the fans to get to know. From attending events to pass out the 10,000 flyers I had printed out, to sending out banners on myspace to vote for me and replying to fans until wee hours of the night on line, to travelling to other states to do radio shows, to doing radio shows 3 and 4 times a week with other states. I felt I was really connecting with the fans.
Andy Steven: Who do you think will win the contest and who do you want to win the contest?
Jessica Hatch: I think Terran will win because she is working hardest to reach fans to allow them to get to know her. I honestly want Eve or Lena to win because they have unique looks which will add variety to the roster. They are both athletic and have a lot to offer so I would like to see one of them win.
Andy Steven: Will you still be pursuing your aim to receive a WWE contract?
Jessica Hatch: You know it. I will fight to the end to be a WWE Diva. I have what it takes and the desire of my heart pushes me to make it to the finish line in another way. I look at what happen as a detour, and what do we do at a detour we go around it and get right back on track, so that is what I am doing. “I can do all things through God who strengthens me.”
