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, Laynie Luck, at a recent Pro Wrestling TeXas event 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.
LL: It’s a really nice honor, a really big honor to be around all the other talented women in Texas. Just to be a part of that just shows me that all of the hard work that I have been doing and everything that I have been striving for is finally coming together.
H/F: What would it mean to you to win this tournament?
LL: It would be huge! It is such a big event and to come out on top of that would be crazy!
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?
LL: It’s just going to take what I do, keep doing what I do. I am Laynie Luck, I am stronger than most of, if not pretty much all of the women out there. I think I can muscle my way through this and maybe change (that no woman making her debut has ever won this tournament).
H/F: I know you and Christi Jaynes 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?
LL: It would definitely put a big stamp on my side because we have been doing a whole lot of back and forth here (in Pro Wrestling TeXas) and I feel like it would just give me that extra edge over her if I could finally defeat her over there.
H/F: This tournament is going to require you to wrestle in multiple matches in one night, do you approach this differently than other events where you only have one match in any given night?
LL: Yeah, definitely! I mean, you’ve got to go into that second match after winning your first one. If your first match is not easy or not quick and you struggle, if I work, I still have to go out and give whatever I can and obviously I am not going to be 100%.
H/F: Are you scouting the competition at all?
LL: Oh yeah, I’ve definitely already seen all of these women at other promotions. I’ve faced most of them actually at some point. So I kind of have a pretty good feel of the competition right now.
H/F: What can fans expect to see when they see Laynie Luck step inside the ring?
LL: They can see me muscling through all of these women and defeating all of them.
H/F: Do you have any words to the other competitors in this tournament?
LL: You better start training, you better start going to the gym hard, harder than me, which is impossible so good luck I guess.
Be sure to catch Laynie Luck and all of the other great wrestlers in action on Sunday June 26 at the Mohawk, located at 912 Red River in Austin, Texas.
