Anarchy Championship Wrestling will host its eighth annual American Joshi Queen of Queens tournament on Sunday June 26. Eight women will be competing to be crowned the 2016 Queen of Queens winner. Five of the women are making their debut in the tournament and we caught up with one of them, Christi Jaynes, to talk about the upcoming tournament.
H/F: A lot a great wrestlers have competed in this tournament in the past. Talk about what it means to you to be able to compete in this tournament.
CJ: I feel honored and privileged to be part of this show that year after year is filled with great women. To be able to be on the same card as some of the past names makes me feel like one day I’ll be in places like those girls.
H/F: What would it mean to you to win this tournament?
CJ: I would be super excited and I would feel like people would look at and see that I took out some great wrestlers, it would feel like I’ve really proven myself to some people who doubt me.
H/F: You have never competed in this tournament and no wrestler who has made their tournament debut has won it in that same year. What is it going to take to win this tournament?
CJ: A lot of hard work. I’m going to have to really mentally and physically prepare myself for these women. Not only are they great wrestlers, but they can get in your head too and I have to make sure I keep my eye on the prize.
H/F: I know you and Laynie Luck are in the middle of a feud at another company right now and you both have exchanged wins over each other. Are you hoping to meet up with her in the finals?
CJ: She’s a great competitor and wrestler and I enjoy the challenge every time we’re in the ring but all I’m hoping for is to make it to the finals period.
Be sure to catch Christi Jaynes and all of the other great wrestlers in action on Sunday June 26 at the Mohawk, located at 912 Red River in Austin, Texas.
