Yesterday we announced Allie Kat as the eighth participant in the upcoming Sabotage Wrestling tournament to crown the first ever women’s champion. We also had the pleasure of speaking to her and getting to know her a little more. Although she is still relatively new to the business, she has one of the best trainers in the business and gets advice from some of the best wrestlers. You can find out that info plus everything else we talked about below.
H/F: At what age did you begin watching wrestling?
AK: I watched when I was in first grade with my best friend at the time, and then picked it back up religiously four years ago.
H/F: When did you know that you wanted to become a wrestler?
AK: I never thought I would be athletic enough to do it, but I did a fantasy camp at Booker T’s school for my birthday and fell in love. A month later I began training.
H/F: Where did you begin your training and who did you start training with?
AK: I am training at AAPW in Austin with George De la Isla.
H/F: How long have you been in the business?
AK: I started training March of 2015. They threw me out into the world to work shows a few months after that. Yikes.
H/F: Who are some of your influences or people that you look up to in the business?
AK: Surprisingly, (Ricky) Starks and (Andy) Dalton. If I have a question about anything wrestling related, I value their two opinions a lot.
H/F: How did you and Laynie Luck come up with the Blondetourage?
AK: It was actually this guy we know from training who came up with the name, and said it about the four of us (me, Laynie, Cody, and him), because we were always together and all blonde. A few people heard about the nickname an eventually we were asked if we wanted to make it a real thing. Very short lived and not really what it was supposed to be.
H/F: What is your entrance music? Any reason for picking this song?
AK: World War V by Twitching Tongues. They are one of my favorite bands and it gets me really pumped. Also, the vocalist loves wrestling and it’d be cool if one day he stumbled upon me and saw that I used their band’s music. Well, as long as he liked me, it would probably be cool haha!
H/F: What is the name of your finisher(s)?
AK: Eh, I don’t really have set finishers or names yet. Trying to think of cat stuff to put to it. I still feel it’s a little early for all that.
H/F: What have you learned about yourself in your journey of becoming a wrestler?
AK: That I’m the biggest baby in the world and need to suck it up or it will keep holding me back.
H/F: What has been your favorite part of your career so far?
AK: Probably the people so far. I have been able to share car rides, ups/downs, and even a match with someone really great that I would of only met through wrestling.
H/F: Who would your dream match be against?
AK: Eddie, Kurt Angle or Jericho.
H/F: Other than the dream match opponent, is there anyone that you haven’t worked with that you would like to one day?
AK: The pool of people I have worked is so small. There are so many women I need to work and learn from.
H/F: Ok let’s talk about Sabotage Wrestling now. Talk about how you became involved with Sabotage.
AK: I was vaguely asked by some friends if I wanted to go to California and then that fell thru and I saw the Sabotage lineup announced and was stoked! Anything that is women only is heart eyes for me. So, I got lucky and my friend Christi can’t go to the one in February because she’s going to Japan! So she dropped my name in their hat and I was contacted.
H/F: What would it mean to you to become the first ever Sabotage women’s champion?
AK: Oh wow. For a new company to trust me with being their champ and leading the women, would mean a lot and be a lot of pressure. I’d be very surprised but so proud and honored!
H/F: What can fans expect from you once you step in the ring?
AK: Meowing, scratching, hissing. I’d like to think I’m funny to watch at least.
H/:F: Anything you would like to say to the other women competing in this tournament?
AK: Girl power!! Thank you for existing and I hope I can prove to y’all I deserve to be there with you.
H/F: How are you planning on preparing for this tournament?
AK: Watching any matches I can of people announced and just putting in more training hours in the ring for myself.
H/F: Any words for your fans?
AK: They exist?
