    Arron Carlton: Hello Tina, Thank you for joining me!

    Tina San Antonio (Facebook facebook.com/tinasanantonio): Thank you for having me!

    Arron Carlton: What have you been up to in recent weeks?

    Tina San Antonio: Training in the ring, working out and dieting really hard. I have a few big matches coming up and I want to be at the top of my game, and in the best shape of my life.
    Arron Carlton: I saw you wrestle for the first time at WSU's 3rd anniversary show back in March and I was very impressed. You tagged with Marti Belle as "The Belle Saints," how did the tag team come about?

    Tina San Antonio: Both Marti and I train at the same gym. I think becoming a tag team was inevitable for us, as the only two females training there at one point. I think everyone was waiting to see what we were about. What better way to debut then at WSU.

    Arron Carlton: How has it been working for the promotion so far?

    Tina San Antonio: WSU is one of the most inspiring and best experiences I have had as a wrestler so far. The whole Locker room is amazing. They give women a chance to actually wrestle and showcase our talents.

    Tina San Antonio and Marti Belle Arron Carlton: After scoring a victory over WSU Tag Champion Cindy Rogers, The Belle Saints have a shot at the titles. What are your thoughts on Cindy Rogers and Jana?

    Tina San Antonio: I think The Belle Saints are definitely underestimated as a tag team because we are new comers by Cindy and Jana. They have been pushing everyone around. It may have been called one of the biggest upset of the year ;however, I did score that victory. We have a real chance at victory. So my thoughts are Cindy and Jana should not underestimate us, we are walking away with the belts. You are going to need more than just bringing arrogance into the ring.

    Arron Carlton: What are your thoughts on the show being broadcast live on GoFightLive.tv?

    Tina San Antonio: Even though I am a new comer at WSU, I think it is a step in the right direction. They should have been on PPV already. The women who work for WSU are some the most talented women out there today. Everyone deserves a chance to watch this show. It is going to be one of their biggest yet.

    Arron Carlton: One week prior---on October 30 2010, at WUW Halloween Brawl, you are involved in a Stunner's 3 Way Dance against TNA Knockout Champion Angelina Love and Marti Belle. What are you thoughts on Angelina Love?

    Wrestlers Tina San Antonio and Tristan Spade Tina San Antonio: I respect her a lot as a female wrestler. She has worked really hard to become TNA’s current champion. Although I have worked on a few of the same shows as her, this my first opportunity to work with her inside the ring. I am really looking forward to her experience in the ring, but I am definitely bringing all I have into this match.

    Arron Carlton: You are a mainstay at WUW...For those of us who are not familiar with the promotion, tell us about it.

    Tina San Antonio: WUW (World of Unpredictable Wrestling) is WWE Hall of Famer, "The Unpredictable" Johnny Rodz Club of Professional Wrestling at Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn, New York. Its where Tazz, The Dudleys, Tommy Dreamer, Matt Striker and many more came out of. If anyone is ever in Brooklyn, they should check it out, you'll never know when you'll see an up and coming superstar.

    Arron Carlton: How did you working for WUW come about?

    Tina San Antonio: WUW is my home federation. That is where I train out of.

    Arron Carlton: Going back a bit, when did you become a fan of wrestling?

    Tina San Antonio: I don’t know if I can pin point when as a kids I became a fan. I just grew up on it. It was a part of my weekends watching it with my grandfather.

    Arron Carlton: Who were you fans of?

    Tina San Antonio: Back then I loved Jake "The Snake" Roberts and "Ravishing" Rick Rude. As a child I was entertained. Everyone wanted a snake!

    Arron Carlton: When did you decide that you were going to become a wrestler?

    Tina San Antonio: I think every time I watched Trish Stratus, Molly Holly, Victoria or Ivory in that ring, I secretly wanted to be a wrestler. However, I was always to shy to even take a step forward on looking into training. Finally, in 2009 I realized life is too short. If I never do this I'll never know. So, I looked into it and here I am today! No regrets.

    Arron Carlton: What year did you have your first match?

    Tina San Antonio: In 2009, it was an inter-gender tag match.

    Arron Carlton: Who did you wrestle?

    Tina San Antonio: I tagged with Mikey Firezone against Rick Cataldo and Chris Verrazano.

    Arron Carlton: Who has been some of your favorite wrestlers to work with so far?

    Tina San Antonio: Rick Cataldo, Alicia, Mercades Martienz and Cindy Rogers.

    Arron Carlton: Who have you not wrestled, that you want to get in the ring with?

    Tina San Antonio: Oh, that’s a tough one! There are so many. Sara Del Rey, Sumie Sakai, Sassy Stephie, Mickie James, Tara Rizing…I can keep going.

    Arron Carlton: Which promotions do you hope to work for in the future?

    Tina San Antonio: I think we all come into this business with the ultimate goal of WWE or TNA, right now I am just going keep going forward and see what the future brings. My options are always open.

    Arron Carlton: When it is all said and done, what would you hope to have accomplished in the business?

    Tina San Antonio: I’d like to be looked at with respect for the blood, sweat and tears I have put and will be putting into every match I have. I bring everything I have and leave it all in the ring to make sure I put on the best show possible. I also want to be able to inspire future female wrestlers and show them anything is possible.

    Arron Carlton: In closing, what advice do you have to all the aspiring wrestlers out there?

    Tina San Antonio: The best advice I received the first day I decided becoming a wrestler is the best advise I could give. I only truly know the meaning of it now. There is no magic wand. Becoming a great wrestler is not overnight. You have to dedicate so much time both in an out of the ring. Once you think you might have it all together you get a reality check that it takes years to understand this business.
