Talking Money- Ladies of the Independants

Posted in In My Head by Jack at 05:09, Jul 29 2006

Interviews with the top females on the Indy Scene
Conducted by Tim Miller

Amy Vitale
Why did you choose wrestling for a career? I chose wrestling as a career because it's fun. I am not going to lie, I enjoy being the center of attention. It feels great to be out there, all dressed up like a Barbie doll, entertaining the fans.
If you were not wrestling, what would you be doing? Saving a lot of mileage.
Who were your heroes growing up? In wrestling my hero was Woman. She was smart and had sex appeal, but never had an appearance of a bimbo. Out of wrestling, my hero was my mom, because even though she lost her battle with cancer, she always was a trooper and put up a fight. Smiling all the way through.
What is your dream match? As a fan, I would love to see Cactus Jack against Bruiser Brody.
Your thoughts on TNA, ECW, WWE, the state of Independants? I think wrestling is starting to come around and make a come back. There is a lot of competition, and competition is good. I believe that there's no good or bad way to run a promotion. Each promotion has a different style of running things, and, if it makes them money, then it definitely works for them.
Who is your favorite opponent? Every time I manage Kahagas against former WWE Headbanger, Chaz, I can't wait to slap the taste out of Chaz's mouth!
What was your favorite all- time match? My favorite match was me managing Modern Day Theory against TNA's The Naturals at MXPW's Lords Of The Ring this past April.
What is your greatest wrestling moment? Finally getting recognized for the hard work I put in. Being in magazines such as "Wrestling World", Indy Divas" and "Fighting Females" as well as numerous newsletters, websites, and hotlines.
How did you train to enter wrestling? I originally trained with Sunshine Wrestling Federation, but I continue to learn each and every day.
WHo would you rather work for TNA or WWE? TNA, because TNA has an easier schedule. I like to travel, but I am not the type of person who can live out of a suitcase everyday.
What would you change about the current state of professional wrestlings? There's no more slow builds. There's always a rush in angles.
What legend deserves to be in the WWE Hall of Fame that is not yet? The Dynamite Kid
Your thoughts on a Diva vs. Female Wrestler? Valet vs. Female Manager? A Diva is no different than when the WWE calls their wrestlers superstars. It just makes it sound more impressive. A valet, basically, is eye candy, and a manager gets involved more in a match. Both serve purposes in the business.

Chrissy Rivera
Why did you choose wrestling for a career?

I have always loved wrestling, ever since I was a little kid. Ive always had such a huge interest in it and wanted to become part of it and I finally did.
If you were not wrestling, what would you be doing?
I would say i would probably be in some sort of activity. I was always involved in some club or sport.

Who were your heroes growing up?
As far as wrestling heros, Jimmy Hart and The Genius were my favorite. The Genius was so under rated in my eyes.
What is your dream match?
I would love to see Stone Cold vs. Hulk Hogan, even though it will probably never happen.

How did you break into the business?
I knew some people that were already in the business so they helped me find a school and begin training.

Who is your favorite opponent?
I manage more then i wrestle so i would say my Favorite and only opponent would be Noel Harlow.

What was your favorite all- time match?
That is a hard question bc there are so many amazing matches and amazing for different reasons. But i am constantly watching HBK vs. Hulk Hogan. that match was so perfectly done, and will never be done that was again.
What is your greatest wrestling moment?
I am lucky enough to have many great moments in my early career but working with Meanie was one of my favorites. He taught me so much and i thank him for giving me the opportunity.
How did you train to enter wrestling?
I began training in north jersey at the awa school.

Explain your thoughts on WWE, TNA, ECW?
I think WWE is slowly getting back in their groove, i believe they werent doing so good for awhile but they are coming back and i am enjoying raw and smackdown again. TNA is a great company also but i believe that they should focus more on letting their current roster grow and build more then constantly bringing in ex wwe guys. yes they are big names but what about the somoa joes and alex shellys? they are both great workers and they need to shine more then they do now. ECW was GREAT....back in the day. I still watch old ecw tapes and get goosebumps from some of the matches. but we all have to realize that the new ecw isnt going to be what it once was. they brough the same guys back...but they are 10 years older. they arent going to perform the same way they did back then and i think ppl are expecting too much, thats why ecw isnt doing as well as we all thought it would. but then again, its still new so i will give it a chance.

What would you change about the current state of professional wrestlings? Nothing. someone once said, the business was here before you,it owes you nothing and they are right. you know all the ups and downs coming into the business so u cant really say.."well i wish this was this way" or "why cant it be like that?" Bc thats just how it is, and if you dont like it, then leave.

What promotions do you currently perform for?
I currently work for CZW, DCW and a few others here and there.

What do you want to accomplish in this business?
I just want to work hard and keep going. this is what i wanted to do and i am very lucky to say i am doing it. one day i hope to go farther then i ever imagined so until then i will keep working for it.

Word Association:
1) Vince McMahon: respected(any boss that is willing to get in the ring and take head shots with a chair and humiliate himself in front of the world is great)
2) Sherri: amazing!(glad she is in the hall of fame!!)
3) WWE: better
4) TNA: growing
5) ECW: sandman & woman
6) Trish Stratus: total package(she is a great worker and shes hot)
7) AJ Styles: credible nice guy.
Hulk Hogan: HBK rematch plz!
9) Tammy Sytch: will hopefully prove everyone wrong one day
10) Victoria: held back( let the woman work!!! stop making her shake her ass and give her a match!!!)

21st Century Fox
Why did you choose wrestling for a career?

I started watching it again in 1999-2000 and just became obessessed with it and thought that it was something I could do and so I went for it. It combined athletic ability with entertainment so I thought I would love it and I was right!

If you were not wrestling, what would you be doing?

Hopefully something in entertainment. It's the field that I love.

Who were your heroes growing up?
I wasn't a hardcore wrestling fan growing up, but I like Hulk Hogan of course, Macho Man, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Koko B. Ware, Jake the Snake to name a few.

What is your dream match?
Everytime I get to wrestle is a dream. So I don't know. Probably a match at Wrestlemaina in front of a sold crowd. That would be awesome.

Why the name "21st Century Fox?"
I got that name because my trainer was making fun of another girl that was training with us and he called her a name but said I was a fox. A 21st century fox!

Who is your favorite opponent?
Just recently I had the chance to wrestle Cheerleader Melissa. She just pulls stuff out of you that you knew was there but couldn't quiet reach. She definately keeps you on your toes. You have to know what you're doing to wrestle her.

What was your favorite all- time match?
Of mine? I would have to say my first match. There's nothing like the first time you go out there, it's just awesome!

What is your greatest wrestling moment?
Like I said before, everytime I wrestle is great. But the greatest hasn't happened yet.

How did you train to enter wrestling?
I basically knew nothing about wrestling or indy wrestling. Before I started training I just watched alot of tapes. WWF, WCW, AWA, NWA. Anything wrestling realted.

Your thoughts on TNA, WWE, ECW?
I think that TNA is providing alot of talented people the opportunity to be seen and show that there is an alternative to WWE that can be entertaining for different reasons and bring a different style than what is provided by the WWE. The WWE will always be the "Big Show" so to speak. I don't think there is a company that will ever rival them, but who knows. In this business, never say never. As far as ECW is concerned, I haven't really had a chance to see it because we don't get it up here in Canada yet, so I really can't say. All I have to go by are the PPV and I missed the last one.

What would you change about the current state of professional wrestling?
I think for the most part it's pretty good. The only thing that I would really change is having more women's matches and having the women taken more seriously. That's the only thing that kinda bothers me.

What promotions are you currently performing for?

Word Association:
1) Vince McMahon: Big business
2) Trish Stratus: Fellow canuck, good wrestler
3) WWE: Big Show
4) TNA: Talent
5) ECW: Hardcore
6) Sherri:: Awesome
7) Tammy Sytch: sunny
Victoria: Great wrestler
9) Gail Kim: Good wrestler
10) AJ Styles: Nice, great wrestler

Upcoming Events: You can catch me next on saturday July 15th for PWA in Ontario and CIWA on sunday in Ontario as well on the 16th of July.

Any other comments for your fans:
I just want to say thanks for all the support and I'm going to keep working hard. Hope to see you soon! Thanks!
