On What She Hopes to Accomplish in Professional Wrestling
My main goal, obviously like anyone else, is to get to one of the bigger companies, whether it’s WWE or TNA. Everybody wants to headline Wrestlemania at some point. There’s always doors open, as well, in Japan or Mexico. I’m open to wherever this profession leads me. I like to try new things. I like to believe everything happens for a reason. If I do go to Mexico or Japan, I’ll greet that with open arms.
On Growing Up As A Wrestling Fan
Hulkamania was running wild in my house. My brothers had the Randy Savage ‘Bash Buddies’ and the Sting face paint.
On Performing Since She Was A Young Kid
I’ve been doing acting and modeling since I was 4 years old. You name it, I’ve done it. Surprisingly, other than dance and a little cheerleading here and there, I really wasn’t into athletics. I wasn’t a girl who liked to sweat much. I was that girl who would cheer for you really great from the sideline. Wrestling was a big transition for me.
On Working With the Funks at the Funking Conservatory
They have been an absolute blessing. It’s been an honor and a blessing and a privilege to work with them both. If you want to get into this business, Dory is the man to go to. For someone of his caliber to give me that positive feedback, and to take an interest in my career in this business and my future, is sometimes staggering to me. And Marti as well. She’s been so wonderful personally and professionally in my life just helping me through the business. It’s a hard business to be in for a lady. But to have a background so stable and such a strong support system has been unbelievable. … I can’t put a price on that.
