Belle: Well, I just got back from
the Dominican Republic, I was there on vacation but
decided to go check out DWE (Dominican Wrestling
Entertainment) and ended up training with
them for two days which was an amazing experience.
A few days before I left I faced Angel Orsini
at an IndyGurlz show, although not
victorious, it was a great experience to work her,
she is an amazing worker. Other than that, just a
lot of training and some traveling!
Carlton: When did you become a
fan of wrestling?
Belle: I became a fan when I was
very young, maybe about four or five. When I moved
back to NY from the Dominican Republic, I didnít speak
any English and wrestling was a great way for me to
be able to interact with my cousins, I didnít need
to speak the language to understand what was happening
and we all knew what was happening without having
to hear one word which is part of what I think drew
me in to wrestling.
Belle: I was a huge fan of Shawn
Michaels, Bret Hart, The
Undertaker, Chris Jericho,
Edge, Stone Cold Steve Austin,
Billy Kidman, Triple H,
Lita, The Hardys,
Christian, The Dudleyz,
Trish Stratus among many others.
Carlton: You got started at Johnny
Rodz' World of Unpredictable Wrestling (WUW),
how did that come about?
Belle: At this point, I had not
been watching wrestling for a few years, and had just
graduated the American Musical & Dramatic Academy (AMDA).
I was browsing through casting calls at ModelMayhem.com
and came across one that was pretty much looking for
valets/managers to work on a pilot with some of the
wrestlers at WUW. I went down to the
casting and got picked instantly. They liked me and
had me come back every month after, after about a year
of managing Tristan Spade, I decided
it was time to start training, being there just lit
up the spark that I think had always been there.
Belle: I was trained by a few
people at WUW, I think we all see
each other as a big family and try to help everyone
out as much as we can. The main people who trained
me were Johnny Rodz, Mac
Daddy Flexx (aka Jason Perry), Joe
so Delicious (Joe Montanino) & Reggae
Dones (Pedro Dones) among others. In the
end, I think we all feed off each other to get better.
Belle: My first match was a three
way between Tina San Antonio, Sweet
Pea and myself.
Carlton: Many wrestling fans have
a stigma towards "models" becoming wrestlers. What
is your response to such immediate judgments?
Belle: Itís something that I had
to deal with from the beginning, even at WUW,
some people would treat me differently because I was
coming in as a ďmodelĒ and not a worker, I had to
really prove myself and earn peopleís respect with
my level of commitment and work. I think sometimes,
people are too quick to judge us, I come from an athletic
background (more than 8 years of softball and 4 of
Volleyball, both Varsity by the time I entered WUW)
and I also have an acting background which I think
has helped me earn respect. Not every ďmodelĒ that
steps into a ring is there to walk around looking
cute, some of us are there to kick ass!
Carlton: You made your debut for
WSU at their third anniversary show,
with your tag team partner Tina San Antonio.
How has your experience been so far working for WSU?
Belle: So far, it really has
been an amazing experience. This company really has
put womenís wrestling on the map for the good things
that they do, they really are a genuinely amazing
womanís company that constantly puts on shows worthy
of being called the best. We have been treated with
a lot of respect and have been taught a lot while
being here for such a short time.
Carlton: You and Tina have your
first WSU Tag Team Title match against
the champions Cindy Rogers (Profile)
(Profile). What are your thoughts on
Belle: We are pretty excited about
this match. We have both individually faced both Cindy
and Jana and we can say they are both very strong
competitors. On my end, I know I can say working Jana
made me realize that this show coming up will not
be an easy one; if we want those titles we are going
to have to beat one of the best tag teams out there
today. I think weíre ready.
Belle: I think it kind of came
up as a joke, we knew we had to come up with something
and we threw out a few things and I think I came up
with that because it fit both of our names, plus,
we are beautiful saints
Belle: Working with Tina has been
great. Even though I was working at WUW
before she was, she started training before I did
and was part of an all menís class which helped her
become stronger. By the time I came in, she had a
few months on me and we meshed well together. We feuded
for a bit when I first started working and I can say,
some of our matches have been my favorite, we just
know how to read each other. Plus, as a tag team,
I think we compliment each other because we are so
different that there is always something here for
Carlton: Who else has been some
of your favorite wrestlers to work with so far?
Belle: I have enjoyed working
Alicia, Jana, Danny
Demanto, Brittany Force,
Britney Savage, Roxie Cotton,
Annie Social, and of course, working
a match with Mercedes
Martinez (Profile) was a great experience.
Carlton: What do you ultimately
hope to accomplish in this business?
Belle: I think my ultimate goal
is be happy and have a long career. Of course, I think
we all want that contract at the end to be able to
say, damn I did it! Being able to wake up every day
not dreading going to work but excited that its time
to go wrestle would be my ultimate goal. Oh, well
that and staying healthy!
