    Arron Carlton: Hey Kristin, what have you been up to?

    Kristin Flake Lots of traveling!! I have been working a lot with VCW in Virginia Beach. I also have a lot of shows coming up for SCWA in Reidsville, NC. And of course MLW in Tennessee. I'm also working on making a 4th DVD to come out soon. Everyone can check that out as well as the rest of my schedule at www.myspace.com/kflakefanspace or follow me on Twitter @tricepextension

    Wrestler Kristin Flake Arron Carlton: So how long have you been in the business?

    Kristin Flake: I started training 9 years ago, when I was still in high school. My first trainer was Dory Funk Jr. I worked with him for a short time before having to stop due to a back injury (not caused by wrestling). Then when my back was healed I started training at CWF midatlantic mainly with Kamakazi Kid and Jeff Rudd.

    Arron Carlton: Who would you say were the biggest inspirations to you back then?

    Kristin Flake: My biggest inspirations when I was just getting started were probably Sting and Trish Stratus.

    Arron Carlton: When did you have your first match, and who did you wrestle?

    Kristin Flake: My first match was for Midatlantic Championship Wrestling. I believe it was around September of 2007. And it was against Amber O'Neal.

    Arron Carlton: Who got the win?

    Kristin Flake: Amber beat me that night.

    Arron Carlton: Since then, who has been some of your favorite women to work with?

    Kristin Flake: I've been very very lucky with some of the girls that I have been able to work with. Amber O'Neal and Persephone have been the two that have taught me the most and whom I've been in the ring with most. However, girls like Rain, Fantasia, Allison Danger are all girls that I have gotten to work with and get invaluable advice from as well.

    Arron Carlton: Amber O'Neal---a friend of the site---who you have worked with quite a bit...What should fans on the net known about her?

    Kristin Flake: Hmmm, one thing fans should know about Amber is that she is probably one of the most genuine people you will ever meet.

    Arron Carlton: Which would you say has been your best match so far in your career?

    Kristin Flake: Oh goodness, I don't know if I could choose a "best". I mean sometimes a match clicks with the crowd and that's an awesome feeling. Sometimes, you're in there and something click with you which is also a great feeling. So I don't know that I could choose a "best."

    Kristin Flake Arron Carlton: How would you describe your wrestling style?

    Kristin Flake: Probably more technical than anything. I love creative chain wrestling.

    Arron Carlton: Are you pushing towards an ultimate goal in the business?

    Kristin Flake: Right now, I really just am enjoying the variety of wonderful girls I get to work with. The learning and the traveling. One thing I have always wanted to do is get to work in Mexico, just because I love the style those girls work.

    Arron Carlton: Do you see yourself in the WWE or TNA?

    Kristin Flake: Who knows. I mean, I think that all of us get into this crazy business with that kind of gleaming overhead.

    Arron Carlton: Who are some of your current favorite women to watch on WWE and TNA television?

    Kristin Flake: Sarah Stock...or Sarita on TNA for sure. I have been a fan of her work for years now. Also, Taylor Wilde. On WWE I love Maryse just for her attitude and mannerisms. And also Kelly Kelly....I think that she has improved so much and you can see how much she wants to do well.

    Arron Carlton: What are your thoughts on Wendi Richter being inducted into the WWE hall-of-fame?

    Kristin Flake: I think that it is great that she was inducted. Definitely a legend...and that's an honor that she deserves.

    Arron Carlton: TNA Impact on Monday nights...good or bad?

    Kristin Flake: I think that it has the potential to be great! I hope that it turns out that way.

    Arron Carlton: What are your thoughts on promotions such as Women Superstars Uncensored and Shimmer Women Athletes?

    Kristin Flake: I think that it is wonderful that there are promotions out there dedicated to giving us girls the chance to shine.

    Arron Carlton: What are your thoughts on Wrestlicious? Which recently launched Takedown

    Kristin Flake: I think that Wrestlicious is a great product. It is so funny and entertaining. You have comedy, pretty girls, and awesome matches all mixed together. What more could you ask for?

    Arron Carlton: How has the Internet played a role in your career so far?

    Kristin Flake: I think that the Internet has played a role as far as people who aren't in the area I work in... getting a chance to see my name, and see my work. It gives a bigger audience for people.

    Arron Carlton: To all those aspiring wrestlers out there, what advice do you have for them?

    Kristin Flake: Make sure that you love wrestling. Don't think that you're in for some glitz and glamour. Know that you're in for some seriously hard work. But it is all worth it at the end of the day. Also, make sure to listen to people who have been around longer than you. Everyone knows things that can help you improve...you never know everything. So, be open to advice.

    Arron Carlton: Thank you for your time!
