You recently made your debut for Shimmer Women
, how was that experience for you?
My Shimmer debut was a dream come true. I expected the
best out of myself and I definitely showed them that
I am an unnatural force of nature. The fans there were
definitely in love with me... though I don't blame them,
I am pretty hot. Nonetheless I am extremely thankful
I had the chance to be a part of Shimmer
and hopefully I will have more oppourtunities with them
in the near future.
How did you being booked for Shimmer
It actually happened the day after the Anarchy
Annual American Joshi Queen of Queens Tournament
I had a match with former shimmer champion MsChif
, and took her to the limit. I honestly
don't know the order of events, but I got a call and
bam!, I was booked.
Looking forward, who would you want to feud with in
Who wouldn't I want to feud with... There are so many.
I will give you my top 4 though in no particular order...
Cheerleader Melissa, Sara
(Profile), Allison danger, and
Of all the matches taped for DVD volumes 33 through
36, which matches really stood out for you?
Other than my matches--which are clearly the best of
all the dvd tapings, two matches stood out to me...
Rachel Summerlyn vs. Daffeny,
this match was filled with so much raw emotion... it
baffeled me how far these two women took their fight,
but you will see. Kellie Skater vs.
Awesome Kong was quite entertaing as
You are no stranger to Rachel Summerlyn.
How is it like to work with her?
Only one word comes to mind when it comes to a Summerlyn/Athena
match... EPIC. She really brings the best out of me
as a competitor and I know the feeling has to be mutual.
Rachel along with her tag partner Jessica James are
certainly women that deserve everything that they earned
and so much more. As much as I hate to put them in the
same category as me, we are the heart and soul of women's
wrestling in Texas. We are the three that you are always
going to here about, we are the three that plan on breaking
even more barriers than we already have, and we are
the three that are going to take down the other the
first chance we get or at least I know I will. Just
know that if you see any of us in a match you are gonna
get blood, sweat, tears, and maybe even a few schoolyard
Carlton: Going back to before you started
training to become a wrestler, who were the wrestlers
that inspired you to pursue a career in the business?
Rock, Victoria (aka. TNA's Tara) and
You were trained by Skandor Akbar,
tell us about that.
Ak is the reason I am here now. Training was hell running
us along the side of freeway and hittting us with damn
whip along with numerous other things. But Akbar knew
how weed out the weaklings, I remember about ten others
started with me and now only myself and another remain.
For anyone that did get passed the torture aka training
process, Ak branded his name on you. Akbar was my wrestling
dad. I had so much respect for him and words cannot
express how much he means to me. He kept me out of a
lot of bad situations and some of them could have reulted
in me getting severely injured or worse. I miss Akbar
and there was so much I learned from him but even more
stuff that I didn't . I wish the rest of the world could
have known him like I and numerous others did. I have
a lot of love for that man. R.I.P Ak
It was very sad losing Skandor Akbar. During your training
with Akbar, did doubt ever rare its head on whether
getting into wrestling was the right decision?
No, not even a smidge of doubt. I was very determined
when it came to training. You can ask anyone one, I
was the first there the last to leave and even did all
the extra work that others shied away from.
Who did you wrestle in your first match?
A man by the name of JT Lamotta.
Carlton: You are a mainstay at Anarchy
Championship Wrestling, what has been your
favorite moments at the promotion?
lot of people don't know this but I held my first championship
with ACW. I've had a ton of great matches
there and I've had the oppourtunity to build myself
as a better person. ACW is a place
where I am not considered a women's wrestler, but just
a wrestler and I will never be able to thank them for
What other promotions have you worked for?
I work regularly for Booker T, and
currently I am his women's champion. I worked at OVW
once, and I've been to the FCW facility
in Tampa as well. Other than that, I do shows here and
there but nothing that stays constant.
Carlton: How would you describe your
style of wrestling?
My style is "what I want to do when I feel like
What moves and finishers have you been using?
I have been using a top rope stunner called the "o-face"
and a double knee stomp off the top rope or from a springboard
called wrath of the goddess.
What do you ultimately hope to accomplish in this business?
I want to be WWE or TNA
wrestler, plain and simple.
And of all the women currently in the WWE and TNA, who
would you want to feud with?
Most definitely Beth Pheonix, Natalya,
Tara, and Taylor Wilde.
To be the best you have to beat the best.
To all those aspiring wrestlers out there, what advice
do you have for them?
Not a word. It will be their decision if they want to
start this profession and it will be their decision
if they will stick with it. They are going to hear a
lot negative and a lot of positive. A lot of these voices
will be extremely influential a lot will be a ton of
crap. It is up to them what they want to do and I hope
they can decipher everything and use it in their journey.
