What would you consider the hardest part about being a professional FEMALE athlete in a male dominated sport?

Being original and finding something that makes you stand out and be seen, as I wouldn't say the sport is dominated anymore.  As you have seen a huge growth in the representation of women in wrestling, from intergender wrestling and mixed tags, to women holding "men’s" belts etc.  There are so many more women on the scene in the UK right now it’s amazing to see.

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

It is growing and the only way is up, as you can see what has been happening on the independent circuit is now being seen within the WWE - the women’s steel cages, main events and pushing boundaries.

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

It’s their opinion and they can have it.  I am in wrestling to entertain those who want to be entertained through the medium of wrestling.  If I can inspire at least one girl to push the boundaries in whatever she wants to do in life then I am happy.

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

It’s in the best position it has ever been.  Through the years of hard work that all the guys and girls have went through in companies like ICW and Progress- it is all paying off.  Bigger crowds at independent shows, records being shattered and a new found love in the scene.

Can we get your opinion on the recent contractual changes in the UK scene?

I think it’s great on all fronts.  For the guys receiving them to those behind who will now have a chance to step up and showcase their talents and hopefully move on and so on.  There’s always more talent waiting for the opportunity and improve the scene in any way.

According to my research, you started out in backyard wrestling.  You've come a very long way since then, it's criminal that you haven't been picked up by bigger promotions and globally recognised.  That saying, you're still a very established wrestler, winning championships up and down the UK. How do you feel your career has been to date?

Plenty of highs, and plenty of lows, but [I’m] always learning and moving forward.

Where did you officially train to become a pro wrestler and who was your trainer?

M.E.G.A 2010, with Alan Cunningham aka Bonesaw.

Where did you make your official pro debut?  And who was your first match against, do you remember?

Londonderry in a tag with Alan vs Jordan Devlin and Rachel St Claire.

When did you make the transition of coming from Northern Ireland to Scotland, and wrestling in ICW?

 

I debuted at fierce females in 2012 and went to ICW Santa Gravy that year.  Was hooked and moved in Feb 2014.

Women like yourself, your sister (Leah), Kay Lee Ray, Roxxy, Sammii, Nixon (Tegan Nox), Martina and Viper (just to name a few) are helping putting women in British wrestling on the map.  How proud must you be to be recognised as one of the best in Britain?

To be honest, I don’t see myself as one of the best, but thank you.  I am very self-critical and feel that there’s always something to improve on and grow.

During my research, I found that you were part of the British Boot Camp for Impact Wrestling, in 2014.  What was that like?

[It was] my first taste of working for a company like that and for television.  [It] was a great learning experience and another thing that’s helped me grown into the person I am.

I know you’ve worked up and down the UK, and a tour of Japan, did you wrestle overseas at all?  If so where? If not, where would you like to go?

Spain, France. I’d love to work in USA & Canada and one day return to Japan.

Is there anyone around that you would like to wrestle, or that you regret not crossing paths with, at this point in your career?

Need more matches with Sammi Jayne and Bea Preistley.  But I’ve been quite lucky, I have had the opportunity to wrestle many on my bucket list.  And of course the teenage fan in me would love the chance to work with Lita.

Some say your previous in-ring outfits are inspired by Harley Quinn, and quite frankly I can see the resemblance, can you elaborate on this please?

I find her and my stories are very similar so I use her strength to inspire me.

Your real-life boyfriend is none other than popular British Wrestler, BT Gunn.  So I'd like to ask if you could be involved in any sort of mixed tag match, who would be your dream couple-opponents?

Stevie Boy Xavier and Kay Lee Ray – who wouldn’t want to see that?

Finally, is there any advice you’d like to give young women inspiring to be pro wrestlers?

Be humble, listen, learn and train hard inside and outside the ring.  Always strive for the best version of yourself.

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

Dec 27th - Futureshock.
And plenty of debuts in 2019.

Anything else you'd like to add / give thanks to anyone / shout out to any companies / people?

Thank you to everyone who has had me on their shows, fans for their support, and above all my family for theirs and BT for your support and your no holds barred honesty which has moulded me into the person I am today.
