Spotlight/Q&A with Anastasia Morningstar


1. What was your inspiration for becoming a professional wrestler?

I always liked causing pain. The devil guided me to wrestling. Here on Earth, I can hurt people in a ring and it won't be deemed "bad" or "wrong" 😈

2. What's the most intense gimmick match that you've ever been in? 

When I had a hardcore match. But that was the most fun match I had. I want more hardcore matches. 

3. What type of match have you've never been in, but you most want to compete in?

A deathmatch for sure. Mr.Crow and I would be great in that type of match.

4. If you could travel anywhere to wrestle, where would it be and why?

Japan or England for sure. Both are places where Mr. Crow and I want to leave our mark.

5. What's the reason you choose to wear a mask while wrestling?

I didn't choose the mask. The mask chooses me. I was doing a ritual one day and I passed out. When I woke up I had the mask on and here we are. 


6. What's your top dream match and why?

Mr. Crow and I want to go fight Meiko Satomura. She's so tough and I think she would put up a big fight against Mr.Crow and I. Another is Max The Impaler. They seem like fun 😈

7. Tell me one thing about you that you would want fans to know?

If they follow me on my social media it's a better way to interact with me. ("I want to talk to you guys"-Ana) Stop Ana this is a serious conversation. Sorry, the vessel I'm in is trying to speak. 

8. Who has been some of your favorite wrestlers to work within the ring so far?

Caveman, Karen Bam Bam, Jayel Cotto, Sahara The 7th, and Mother Endless.

9. Tell me about Mr. Crow?

Mr.Crow and I met in 2018. He helped me end someone's career. It's been happy ever after since then. We have been two peas in a pod. I love him 🖤

10. What are your goals for 2021?

My goal for 2021 is to wrestle more! 2020 Mr.Crow and I didn't wrestle as often as we would have liked due to circumstances beyond our control. But this year we want to wrestle more and safely.

Spotlight/Q&A with Amber Rodriguez

1. What inspired you to become a professional wrestler?

I've always wanted to since childhood, seeing stars like Shawn Micheals, Mickie James, etc... I knew I wanted to be a part of this business.

2. How did you get the opportunity to work for Mission Pro Wrestling?

No different than any other booking, I was contacted by their booker and accepted.

3. Tell me about your experience wrestling at Mission Pro Wrestling?

It's a wonderful experience. Being around such a plethora of knowledge and getting to learn from everyone. Being around greats like Jazz and getting to pick the brain of great legends like her and Madusa, it's one of those locker rooms where you take in as much as you can and you come out better. Thunder Rosa really has something special.

4. 2020 being the year of double champions, how did it feel being apart of that trend?

Triple champion. And it felt great. I look forward to the future. 

5. Tell me about your alliance with Danni Bee and Promise Braxton?

The Queendom is truly something amazing and we have more great things to come. I've always loved being in stables and taking the lead of an all women's stable is truly an honor, I can't wait to show everyone what we have in store and continue to provide that representation that this business needs. Thank you to Scott Bruce of RWR for introducing us and thank you to Booker T and Kevin Bernhardt for training such professional and talented young women such as Danni and Promise.




6. Since returning to the ring in late 2019, has your return been what you expected?

With the pandemic hitting, I'm gonna say no. Lol, but as always I've continued to overcome and persevere and have been blessed to receive the opportunities that I've gotten.

7. What are your plans for 2021?

To be an even better version of myself. 

8. Tell me something about yourself that's non-wrestling related that you would want your fans to know?

I am launching a CBD infused skin care line in the spring. Email amberrodriguez46@gmail.com to join the mailing list for product samples. 

9. If you could only have one more match, who would you want it to be against?

Jazz

10. What's your favorite and least favorite thing about being a professional wrestler?

My favorite is that feeling when you walk through the curtain and all eyes are on you, you get to be someone else and sit on top of the world for a little while, then you get in the ring, and you're feeding off high energy. Nothing else matters in that moment, what happened at work, what someone said about you on Twitter. That moment is precious. 

Least favorite is the emotional drainage that this business can sometimes cause. I have really bad social anxiety so interacting with so many people at one time can be exhausting. 

Also, the time that I have to spend away from my baby girl, but I work hard to provide a better life for us so it'll all be worth it one day.

Spotlight/Q&A with Flex Kalifah


1. What inspired you to become a professional wrestler?

I’ve wanted to wrestle since high school during the attitude era while watching Jaqueline and Chyna. I didn’t start wrestling until over a decade later while I was a fitness model/competitor and I noticed that a few women that were competing in bikini/figure competitions like Kaitlyn and Alexa Bliss were getting signed so that inspired me to research training dojos in GA and decided to start training while performing as a valet. 

2. How did your friendship/alliance with Rache Chanel begin?

We both trained at DFW All-Pro in TX and our trainer Lou pointed out that our gimmicks were similar so we got paired up in one of her matches where I did a run in to help out my good Bougie sis. The rest is history and hopefully, we’ll make more together one day.

3.Tell me how you and Rache came up with the name Bald and Bougie? 

It’s definitely a play on the term “Bad and Boujee” I was already using the phrase “Bald & Bougie” when I debuted as Flex Rated in Texas. But since we both had bald/short hairstyles at the time and we’re both fabulous in and out of the ring, we realized it was a perfect tag team name so we immediately decided to start shooting content/promos together which was so much fun.

4. Tell me something about yourself that many fans don’t know? 

I was an Opera singer for 7 years and I have a Bachelors Degree in Music Performance.

5. What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about being a professional wrestler? 

My favorite thing is performing for the fans and giving them and myself an escape from the trials and tribulations that we all face in our daily lives. My least favorite thing is COVID keeping a lot of us out of the ring for now. Hopefully, that will change sooner than later.

6. What’s some of your favorite tattoos that you have and what meaning do they have?

My favorite tattoo is my jellyfish leg sleeve which symbolizes “deadly beauty” I also love my chest piece which is a clock and a butterfly which symbolizes the phrase “time flies” because life is so fleeting.

7. What’s your favorite cheat meal? 

I love street tacos! 

8. What inspired your t-shirt design “Queen of Pops”?

Now that I’m known as Flex Kalifah I’ve evolved from the Bald & Bougie Baddie known as Flex Rated, to a full-fledged Queen. Pops has a couple meanings, I “pop” my opponents with a superkick or a punch (notice the punch/fist-shaped marshmallows on the shirt lol) but I also “pop” the crowd with amazement with a flip of my hair after a Hurricanrana. 

9. Growing up, who were some of your favorite wrestlers? 

Chyna, Jaqueline, The Rock, Owen Hart and Eddie Guerrero.

10. If you could only have one more match, who would you want to it be against and why?

Sasha Banks because she puts on stellar matches and has become so flawless when telling the story in the ring, not just physically but emotionally as well. You can see the emotion and passion in her face and she’s such an amazing athlete

Spotlight/Q&A with The W.O.A.D

Double D Rose aka The W.O.A.D has been one of the sweetest and most inspiring wrestles that I have ever encountered since I've started O-Face Wrestling. She has had a disadvantage as a wrestler because of her missing an eye. She hasn't let that hold her back one bit and has so far had a very successful career as a professional wrestler. She strives to motivate and inspire others to go for their goals and to not let anyone tell them no just because they are different.

1. What got you into wrestling and what made you decide to become a professional wrestler?

Growing up with 16 siblings, wrestling was always a huge factor in my life. What got me into it was the first time I saw it; Randy Savage doing his classic elbow drop took my breath away and I was hooked ever since.

2.What did you find was the most difficult part about training? 

Learning to keep my eye on my opponents at all times. Not being able to use my left side at all really made me improvise on keeping them in my sight.

3. What was the best piece of advice you were given upon becoming a professional wrestler?

“You can’t do it”- from everybody

4. What are some of your hobbies and interests outside of professional wrestling? 

I love to stea- I mean “work” with dogs! I just love love love steali- “working” with animals. I even use to work at the zoo before they “allegedly” caught me trying to steal a baby panda.

5. Who is your all-time favorite wrestler and why? 

Myself. Why? Because there’s no one else like me and I hope to inspire generations upon generations just like me.


6. How do you generally prepare for your matches? 

I put on some Megan Thee Stallion (or whatever music I’m feeling- mostly Megan) and I whisper to the WOAD, “It’s showtime!”

7. What is one thing you wish fans knew/understood about professional wrestling that they may not know? 

Respect us and what we do. Respect and understand boundaries.

8. What wrestler would you love to have a match with that you haven’t already done so?

EVERYONE! Mainly Kong (Aja & Awesome), Rikishi, Jessika Havok, Jazz, Jacqueline- literally EVERYBODY! Anybody can get these Bunz!

9. Favorite thing about being a professional wrestler? 

I get to show the world what a 1 Eyed Thick Thighed Weapon REALLY is.

10. What is your ultimate goal as a professional wrestler? 

To make history, to leave my mark, to inspire more people like me, and to make the WOAD brand a worldwide conglomerate.

Spotlight/Q&A with A.Q.A


A.Q.A is a young and upcoming female superstar who is sure to be the next BIG thing in professional wrestling. Only in the beginning stages of her in-ring career, she has already captured Diamonds Division Championship twice. She has wrestled against established stars such as Thunder Rosa, Robyn Reid, and Kylie Rae. Expect to hear her name a lot of time goes by.

1. What inspired you to become a professional wrestler?

I just fell in love with it after catching an episode of RAW and Smackdown with my grandfather, and at ten-years-old, I made up my mind that wrestling was what I was going to do with my life. It's also the one thing that I can truly say I've ever pursued with all of my might. Through all of the naysayers, and people trying to get me to change my mind, and personal things I've been through, my determination to become a professional wrestler has been the one constant that has never left my mind.

2. Tell me about your experience in training with Booker T at Reality of Wrestling?

It's great, it's always been great since day one, we're all like one huge family and that's how he wants it. It's a place where you not only get trained, but you're surrounded by people who truly have your back, I wish everyone could experience being at ROW. Booker is a phenomenal mentor, he's very hands-on, very approachable, and he always has the right answers to all of your questions. I could tell from day one that he really loves teaching the art of wrestling just by the way he breaks things down, the way he dives into psychology, and ring awareness and presence, he can literally tell you something that is about to happen in a match before it happens. There have been plenty of times during a show where I would be backstage at ROW sitting next to him and he would lean over and say, "watch this kid, he/she is about to do this" and then that person would, and I'd be blown away, that just goes to show that he not only knows what he is talking about but really knows his students. I really appreciate that he practices what he preaches, everything he tells us to do or not to do, you can see it in his own matches. Or if we're having film study, he'll pause on one 10 or 20-second spot and give us a 10-minute lecture behind the art of it. Me personally, my favorite thing is when he stands up and physically demonstrates things, especially when he really gets into it, let me just say, it is quite the sight to see [Laughs].

3. How did it feel becoming a Diamonds Division Champion?

Honestly, the first time I won it, it was one of those things where I wish I would have been more in the moment, soaked it in a little bit more, truly realized what I had accomplished. It's not every day that one gets to wrestle two of the top female talent, Hyan, and Kylie Rae, for the championship only 9 matches into your rookie year. And afterward, Kylie came up to me and said "Hey, make sure you enjoy and cherish these moments and appreciate that (the championship), they don't just give that to anyone." At the time I was so into my own head, and so critical of every little thing I did, that I didn't allow myself to enjoy that moment the way I should have. The second time around I definitely appreciated it more and was in the moment more. I got to be in the main event with one of my best friends and mentor Hyan, and we made history that night. Not only were we the first women to main-event at Reality of Wrestling, but we were the first women to main-event inside of a steel cage at ROW. That match is the highest viewed match of all time for ROW, I believe we're currently sitting at 26 million views, I'm extremely proud of that.

4. What does AQA stand for?

It's my full name: Angela Quentina Arnold. I always thought my initials were pretty cool, so when I was a kid I decided that it would be my wrestling name. I've run into the issue of announcers or other talent mispronouncing it though, calling me either "aqua" or "a-qway" so I changed it from AQA to A.Q.A to hopefully help people out a little bit [Laughs].

5. The Shooting Star Press is known as one of the most dangerous moves in wrestling. How long did it take to master the move? What does it take to perform this move so well? What goes through your mind prior to performing this move each time?

Okay, let me just say this because I do not want to come off as if I'm bragging because I assure you I am not. But I've only done that move twice, and honestly, when it comes to any sort of flip, it doesn't take me very long to figure out the mechanics of it. I love being in the air, and I would jump on my trampoline for hours and hours on end each day as a kid teaching myself tricks, so when it comes to flips, I can usually look at a video two or three times and have it down pat. I remember when I was 12 I saw Matt Sydal, who was Evan Bourne at the time, perform the Shooting Star Press on RAW. I remember saying out loud to myself, "Hmm, I can do that" so for the next couple of days I went outside and practiced it a few times on the trampoline until I got it. Once I got it, I stored it away in the back of my mind and told myself if I ever got a chance to do it in a match, then I would, so when the opportunity arose 10 years later I took it. I was originally going to do another move, but I said nah, I need something big, this is a steel cage match, I have to go all out, and in that moment I remembered I always wanted to do a Shooting Star Press. So I showed up the night before, practiced it about 4 times to make sure I had the correct positioning and everything, and then the next night I went out and performed it. I wouldn't say I've mastered it, there are few things that only I can see when I watch it that I would really like to tweak, but once I get that down, I'll be able to perfect it. To anyone who wants to do it, my advice is to watch Matt Sydal, his SSP is the only SSP I would strongly advise you to study. In my opinion, he has the best SSP there is, it's always crisp and clean, and he makes it look like the coolest move ever. So for me, I knew if I was going to do it, I needed to do it right, so I studied him. In terms of performing it, after you jump forward and lean back into the flip, the key is to grab your ankles, that's what really gives it the illusion of a "star" so whenever I see people just flip without grabbing their ankles, it really irks my soul a little bit [Laughs]. As far as what was going through my mind when I did it, I was thinking mid-flip "Can I come down already?" [Laughs] honestly, I felt like I was in the air forever.


6. Being a highflyer wrestler, what do you do to keep in shape considering the toll that style of wrestling takes on your body?

To be honest, I don't do anything special, I do a regular workout like everyone else, I do my best to strengthen my wrists and ankles though because I'm always coming down from the top turnbuckle hard or walking on my hands from time to time. One thing I've learned though is that if I'm hurting I need to immediately treat it right away instead of trying to tough it out like I used to. Speaking of that, fun fact alert: I sprained my knee really badly when I hit the Shooting Star Press in the steel cage, I couldn't walk for a week, and eventually, I ended up being out of action for a majority of the year because I kept trying to perform on it after taking only two months off, which of course prolonged the injury. If you watch closely, you'll see my left knee extend and then bend in a way that it shouldn't, and my first thought was "oh my god, I just broke my leg" [Laughs], that's why I need to tweak it, my timing was off. Another way I avoid getting injured is now I make sure whatever moves I perform, that I can perform them 10 out of 10 times, that's what Booker teaches us, and it was a lesson that I learned the hard way when I first broke in. I just thought if I did it well 2 or 3 times in training that I'd be fine, so when the time came, and if you go back and watch my earlier matches, you'll see that I would either botch the move completely or just make it by the skin of my teeth. So anytime I would not perform something to the best of my abilities, it would eat me alive because I'm a perfectionist, and even though I'm aware that no such perfection exists, I loathe the thought of messing up, especially on something I really want to do. So this time around I'm learning to slow down, take my time, and make everything count.

7. What is something about you that you are proud of that is non-wrestling related?

I have two, and let me just start off by saying this is in no way going to be anything fancy or inspirational [Laughs], just something I find cool about myself. So this first one is going to sound corny, but I'm proud of the fact that I am a good, self-taught chess player, and I taught myself in the fifth grade, I own a few chess sets and I want to grow my collection. Now with that said, I'm not advocating that someone put me up against a world champion or anything, but I can hang in there with most people. The second one is, that same fifth-grade year, I wrote a book for the school library, but because it was too mature for our age range, they refused to publish it [Laughs]. So while everyone else was writing about their favorite food or superhero, I was writing about real-world issues that I was nowhere near experiencing yet, and shouldn't have been talking about, but my mind was ahead of its time. I don't talk about it much, but I've always loved writing, I have a plethora of posted stories, and movie scripts, and tv scripts that no one knows about except for me and my readers, I feel like it's our little secret. Writing is my getaway, it's my escape, and it makes me proud to see others enjoy my work, no matter how critical I am of it at times.

8. Who are some potential opponent’s that you are eager to step in the ring with one day?

I'll answer that in two parts.

Someone that I would really like to wrestle again is Kylie Rae. The first time I wrestled her in a singles match I was still super new to all of this, and I had not found my rhythm and flow yet, and I was just going through the motions instead of being in the moment and enjoying locking up with one of the best ever. This time around, I feel like I would have more confidence and assurance in myself and would be able to have a better match. Don't get me wrong, our match was good, Kylie was great as usual, I just felt I personally could have done better. To this day I've always felt like I didn't help that match live up to what it could have been, and it's always bothered me.

As far as other opponents go, I truly believe that representation matters, and it's extremely important to me. I say that because when I grew up watching wrestling, I didn't see a lot of female wrestlers who looked like me, wrestling other females that looked like me. So I would love to wrestle the likes of Ember Moon, Bianca Belair, Sasha Banks, Naomi, Big Swole, Kayden Carter, etcetera to show other little black and brown girls that there are women out there that look just like you and are doing what you love, and you can do it too. My goal, even if it's just one, is to be able to inspire another little black girl to lace up a pair of boots and live out her dreams, and hopefully lockup up with whomever that maybe one day.

9. Being a professional wrestler, people want your autographs, photos taken with you, podcasts want you on their show. How does it feel being in such a spotlight and have many looking up to you?

It's extremely exhilarating, I am still in the very beginning of my career and I haven't even begun to show what I can really do. So for people to look at what I've already done and want to take a picture with me, or draw pictures of me, make shirts, or walk up to me and tell me I've inspired them to become wrestlers or that I'm their favorite, not only warms my heart, but it keeps me humble and grounded and seeking to achieve more. I want to be better for them, I want to give them more, if they're having a bad day, when I come through the curtain, I want to be the reason they have a smile on their face. A majority of the time I'm very shocked by the things people tell me. I remember being on the RingSide Society podcast and they told me I was the reason they started their podcast and it truly blew me away. Another time and I won't say her name because It's her story to tell, and she might want to go more in-depth with it one day; but one of our wrestlers at ROW, extremely talented and on the rise, once told me that I was the reason she wanted to start wrestling and that's why she moved to Texas to train at Booker's to do so. And when she told me that, my heart just filled, I never in a million years thought that what I was doing would have that sort of reach, it's humbling in the very best of ways.

10. You get an opportunity to main event WrestleMania, you can choose ANY opponent on the planet, as well as a stipulation, who and what stipulation would you choose?

Charlotte Flair, hands down. She's an opponent that I aspire to wrestle in any main event match. I am not a huge fan of stipulation matches, they have their place, and are great when needed, but I feel like sometimes it takes away from the beauty of wrestling. It's easy to pick up a chair and whack someone across their back, or beat them with a kendo stick, but can we captivate the audience with just our story? Can we draw them in with wrestling alone, nothing extra, nothing over the top, just a pure wrestling match that tells a beautiful story. I've always said my goal is to be able to wrestle in a match that stands the test of time, one that people can go back study, one that is played in all the video packages, one that is always talked about for years and years to come, and if given the opportunity with Charlotte, I believe it could happen. I also strongly believe it could happen with Sasha Banks, two black women in the main event of WrestleMania? Man, just the thought of that gives me goosebumps.

Spotlight/Q&A with Gia Scott


As a teenager, Gia Scott sat in the crowd as a fan at MCW cheering on her favorite wrestler Amber Rodiguez. Finally, at the age of 18, she started her training to become a professional wrestler at MCW. Now almost four years later she is a 3-time/current MCW Women's Champion. At such a young age she has already accomplished a lot, and she is nowhere near done to adding more accomplishments to her resume.

1. What inspired you to become a professional wrestler?

When I was young, I would always watch WWE whether it be on Mondays or Fridays, but my mother only really allowed me to watch it on Fridays. I would always watch the latest Raw or Smackdown with my uncle. I eventually ended up seeing bra & pantie matches, pillows fights, bikini fights, etc.… and as a little girl you probably don’t want them to watch that but I was more interested not what the women were wearing but what they were doing, they were wrestling like the men and I thought that was so cool! After watching it for so long I knew I either wanted to become a model or a professional wrestler.

2. How did you feel when you became the MCW Women’s Champion for the first time?

I was overall happy. I felt like everything I was working towards finally paid off and I was trusted with stamping my name with other women who had held the championship, though it was bittersweet… I was not able to share that moment with my mother because she passed away before I started my wrestling journey.

3. Amber Rodriguez being your top dream match, if you could pick a stipulation for the match what would it be?

A last standing man match. I want to go toe-to-toe and have an all-out war with her to see who is standing tall at the end while bringing their full A-game.

4. Outside of Amber Rodriguez, who is your second top dream match on the indies?

Sumie Sakai (again), Kimber Lee, Jessicka Havok, Angelina Love (again) and Taya Valkyrie… I could go on for days! I fought both Angelina and Sumie before and I had a blast which I would love to do again but for the rest of the other ladies, I have never fought before. Kimber Lee is someone I want to face since I first saw her at an MCW show and I have not given up on that dream. Jessicka Havok… I do not know, something in my body is saying “You have to face her” to go up against someone like her just screams fun. Taya Valkyrie, I mean how could I not want to face the former Women’s Knockout Champion? I’ve been watching her matches since last year and she isn’t one to mess with, but I hope to one day face off against them. There are definitely more I would love to face that I’m forgetting about but the sky is the limit and I would love to face anyone. 

5. You are a 3-time MCW Women’s Champion, Renee Michelle is a 4-time. Is it a goal of yours to surpass her record?

It has been a goal of mine since I first won the women’s championship and if I could not surpass her, I would love to be the one who has the longest reign surpassing Melina. 



6. What is your opinion on intergender wrestling?

I find it interesting. How can I get the crowd into it? How can I make the match more than just it being your typical “big strong man vs helpless woman”? I’ve literally in my 3 years on training have fought men countless of times and honestly some of the things I did not think I could do I learned from practicing or wrestling with them. I do not have much of an opportunity to train with the women at the MCW school which is why the majority of the time I wrestled with the guys. I can understand why some people do not like it, but I feel as though if you tell a story with it, you cannot go wrong.

7. What about yourself that you would want your fans to know about you that is non-wrestling related?

I love to play video games and I love to roller skate and I am also creative (it can be towards a lot of things) I just have a really creative mind. Before this pandemic hit I would roller skate whenever I could because besides going to the gym to get a workout, I would go skating to keep me in shape. You would be surprised how much it wore me out once I finished skating 4 hours straight. It really helps to keep your mind clear, burn a lot of calories, and it was fast pace but the only thing I did not like was bobbing and weaving through kids, adults, and slow skaters.

8. What are your plans for life after wrestling?

I honestly do not know. I’ve asked myself this question many times before and I did say I want to still be involved with wrestling, whether it be me being a coach or anything more after that I still want to be involved but I do want to wrestle until my body says I can’t. Wrestling has been a big part of my life and I cannot see myself completely forgetting about it.

9. What have you been doing during the pandemic to get ready for wrestling?

I roller skate to pass the time, you would be surprised how much of a body work out it is. I was not able to do it as much because wrestling was happening left and right plus on my training days, but it feels good to at least do it once again.

10. What is one thing that you want to be remembered for when your career as a wrestler is finished?

I want to be remembered for how great I was and what I brought to the table as a black women’s wrestler. You barely see or hear about people like me who try and prove someone with their in-ring work and that shouldn’t be the case, I also want to prove that women can also go toe-to-toe and survive in this wrestling business.

Spotlight/Q&A with Camron Bra'Nae


Camron Bra'Nae is a young upcoming wrestler who started wrestling in 2018 at the age of 20. Camron has wrestled for Evolve, WWN, Rise, Respect Women's Wrestling, as well as WWE when she competed versus Lacey Evans, on Smackdown Live in October of 2019. She has also competed against some great talents such as Blair Onyx, Sierra, Mickie Knuckles, Marti Belle, and Tootie Lynn Ramsey.


1. What inspired you to become a professional wrestler?
 

The thing that truly inspired me to be a professional wrestler would have to be seeing the feud between Randy Orton and Triple H. As a kid and still to this day I talk to my cousin about when we went to the Sprint Center in Kansas City when Randy had handcuffed Triple H to the ropes and kissed Steph after hitting her with an RKO. How invested I was and how the crowd was booing so hard, in the inside I was telling my young self like wow!!! This is crazy, the man has everyone in the palm of his hand and I just knew that was the reaction, and the feeling I wanted to get. To have people invested in a story I was telling someone else!

2. How did it feel to have an opportunity to face Lacey Evens on Smackdown Live?

Having the opportunity to face Lacey was such a crazy and I mean crazy feeling!!! That whole day was honestly a big blur to me other than being inside the ring with Jason (the ref) and hearing her music hit. I legit was smiling so hard and I think it was before the camera had cut to my face. Once after that, I do not remember it was like a blackout moment for me in a sense, then after having Lacey sit next to me in catering and us both watching the segment/match together. I could not believe it was truly happening.


3. As a professional wrestler, you are looked at by many as an idol, what is it like to have so many fans look up to you, as well as wanting to meet you?

It's more of a shocker when I think of people looking up to me. I see it a decent amount of times and I’m like who? Camron who? Haha. And seeing little girls make fan pages of me or make their profile picture me, it’s insane, like to me I'm just a little nobody from Missouri. Did I really make a full connection with someone? Because as fans they don’t just connect with you on a wrestling level, they connect with you on a personal level, that’s why a lot of people have athletes that they love and that they hate because in some way or not they connect with that person if it's positive or negative.

4. Name one wrestler on the independent circuit that you are most looking forward to facing?

I WANT TO FACE KYLIE RAE!!!!... haha I will forever say it.

5. How did you come up with the name “Team Babe”?

So I'll make this kind of a straight to the point answer.

I was in Texas with a promotion and I had met the best ring announcer named Mitch Mccoy. We were joking around backstage about this jersey that I had bought from JCPenny because I was thrown into matches so fast, I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted to become. So I quickly took my work shorts because at that time I was working at Hooters. Took the white print off and went to the store and found the jersey that said team babe on it. It was mesh, I was like cool let’s buy it, it's cheap. Back to the show, Mitch had said so what is team babe I shrugged and said I do not know and told him my story. He then says it would be funny to call you the captain of team babe. We all laughed said sure and he did it one day at a show in Texas, Next thing I know I was getting gear, merch, and signs with team babe posted on it. From there I thought to myself who am I, how do I relate to the word babe that my fans came as well because in my eyes everyone is

Beautiful

Has Attitude

Blessed

And Educated

Soooooooo... Team BABE was born.

 HOT QUESTION! Gummy Bears or Wrestling???

*crying* sadly gummy bears lol no wrestling…yeah panic…wrestling but can I still have gummy bears on the side??.. Let's talk about this...

6. What about you that is non-wrestling related would you want fans to know about you?

Umm, nothing really, I truly feel like I am a very open person when it comes to my fans, they see just about every crazy thing that I do. I normally have no problem telling people embarrassing moments. For example, me falling down the stairs into catering at WWE RAW in STL.

7. During this pandemic what have you been doing to get yourself ready to get back in the ring?

Eating right, hitting workouts at kickboxing and lots of cardio, inside and outside of the ring.

8. After your wrestling career, do you have any wrestling related plans? Such as commentary, owning a promotion, in-ring manger, etc.

To be honest anything that has to do with sports if that’s manager, commentating, talent relations, creative, announcer, medic, anything to keep me involved and that also goes for other sports as well.

9. What is your favorite and least favorite thing about being a professional wrestler?

The most favorite and ill keep it simple, the connections we have and get to make with the fans.

Least Favorite will have to be for sure the creepy old men asking if I want a sugar daddy or trying to kiss me at shows, hugging for a long-time, stuff like that. I’m super friendly and love everyone but when you make me uncalmly then it's like wow we are hitting a whole new level haha.

10. What are your thoughts on intergender wrestling?

Love it 100%. Its equality between both genders I feel. Equal opportunities and also a lot of things men can do that woman can't and also vis versa which is why those matches are key to talent and to fans. In my opinion.
