First of all, please tell us a little about yourself (how long you've been wrestling, companies you've worked in/career highlights).

 

I've been involved in wrestling my entire life.  I left school and wanted to do nothing else. I've travelled all around the world and back, and because of wrestling. I’ve lived in some of most amazing places.  A highlight of my career, so far, has to be becoming the first and only non-Japanese member of SEADLINNNG, and wrestling Arisa Nakajima to a 25 min draw, for the world war wrestling women's championship.

 

Where did you train to become a wrestler?

 

Various places.  I'm always one for believing you never stop learning.  My first trainer, and adoptive father, is FWA star Justin Richards, further on the years I was able to add the likes of Nanae Takahashi Natsuki Taio and of course WWE NXT trainer and coach Robbie Brookside.

For those unaware who you are, how would you describe your style and character?

 

My character has now evolved to nothing of the norm I'm a powerhouse and also fast with my previous training I've classed myself as a technical powerhouse.

 

What do you think of the current state of women’s wrestling?

 

Women's wrestling has been on the rise in the last couple of years. With women's only promotions becoming more frequent and all female show and ppvs. It's the perfect time at the moment there are so many differences between the women on the circuit and those on mainstream now that the days of the fluffy boots and hotpants cookie cutter female wrestler is over.

 

How does it make you feel when people discriminate women’s wrestling and what should be done about it?

 

I think those days are faring, not gone but fading, but can't escape criticism of any kind in wrestling.

 

Do you believe women can, let's say, one day main event a show like WWE's Wrestlemania?

 

Of course, we've had ppvs and women only show with the right people and situation your can have the right match.

 

Who are your favourite wrestlers, and who would be your dream opponent to face?

I've always said one of my dream opponents would be one of my teachers Nanae Takahashi one on one. We've had tag and women matches. she has taught my so and allowed my come into the SEADLINNNG family now I want to see if I can hang.

 

What is your opinion on the current state of pro wrestling in the UK?

We now have the best of both world with international influences and the start of something on our own soil it’s in a good place.

Your motto is "live to be different".  How did you choose this and what does it mean to you?

I chose this living life. I've never been part of a clique or group I was the kid picked past and with purple hair not because I needed to but because I wanted to. LIVE TO BE DIFFERENT AND YOUR DIFFERENCE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

You are a multi time women's champion all over the UK.  That's pretty impressive, what were your toughest title wins?

 

Every championship meant the world to me it meant that I was able to prove why I've been working my whole life to be an amazing wrestler. So thank you to everyone who fell victim to the choke bomb or JIGOKUBOMB

 

BUT HONESTLY, Every championship match has been its own challenge the toughest defence I've had was myself and Arisa Nakajima in Osaka for SEADLINNNG for the world war wrestling women's championship a 25min draw.

 

You're one of the few British women to head to Japan on occasions.  Knowing the success some of the women have over there (Viper and Toni Storm to just name two), have you had much success in Japan?  I see you're a former Artist of Stardom champion.

 

I am and former Artist of STARDOM trios champion yes and the first ever British born women to hold a Joshi title the time I had Ain STARDOM was amazing the people I met and lessons I learnt and now I get to further all of the with SEADLINNNG.

 

I see you beat Katey Harvey for the German Wrestling Federation Women's Championship recently.  She held it for over a year. Can you tell us how you felt winning the championship and how your match went?

 

The match was amazing Katey Harvey was the champion for a reason I haven't got a bad word to say about her or the match.

 

You also have recently faced Kay Lee Ray at Honor Rising on behalf of Ring of Honor in London., that must have been some experience, not only working for ROH but wrestling Kay Lee Ray?

 

That was my ROH debut yes and what a debut is was.  I got to wrestle in the historic York Hall after touring Japan, couldn't have been buzzing more.

 

I'd like to discuss World of Sport.

-How is that going for you?

 

The experience was completely new for me apart from the time at the Mae Hong Classic, my TV experience was very limited.  The work with the WOS Team allowed me to experience being a part of wrestling, and our business, that very few get a chance to.

 

-Do you think that the show is more successful now than before?  Why?

 

The pilot episode was just that, a pilot and first taste, now we have a series.

 

Any additional  dates/future appearances of yourself that you'd like to plug?

 

Fierce females November 18 2018, The Shed Glasgow where the most honourable Jim Ross referenced me as an Amazonian Warrior and I will be wrestling and defending my GWF women's championship against Valkerie on Dec 8 in Berlin Germany.
