H/F: At what age did you begin watching wrestling?
LA: I’ve watched wrestling for as long as I can remember, my mom tells me stories of going to Florida Championship Wrestling when she as pregnant with me.

H/F: When did you know that you wanted to become a wrestler?
LA: I would say about the age of 8. I remember watching wrestling with my dad and telling him that I would be a wrestler.

LA: I trained at a place called PCW in Arlington, Texas with BJ Turner and a bit with Lance Hoyt.
H/F: How long have you been in the business?
LA: My first match was September 2006, so wrestling 10 years. I managed/trained for a year before that.
H/F: Who are some of your influences or people that you look up to in the business?
LA: I am a huge Taker fan and I also loved Chyna when growing up. I try to take influence from everyone. I try and watch matches and see what’s new and what I think I would be able to do and change it to make it my own. I keep things simple because I am a clutz.

LA: Dream match would be back in her heyday… Chyna RIP.
H/F: Other than the dream match opponent, is there anyone that you haven’t worked with that you would like to one day?

H/F: What are some of your goals for 2017?
LA: My biggest goal lately is to enjoy my matches, have fun, and entertain the crowd.
H/F: Favorite cheat meal? Type of music? Type of movies?
