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.
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 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: 5 minutes Alone by Pantera. I wanted a band from Texas, since that where I mainly came up as a wrestler. Plus it’s just badass.
LA: I have learned that I can do anything I set my mind to. Since becoming a wrestler, I went back to school and got my degree. I am currently an ICU RN, I just competed in an NPC bodybuilding competition (figure division).
LA: Dream match would be back in her heyday… Chyna RIP.
LA: I’ve gotten pretty lucky and worked some pretty well known people and some ladies on their way up. I’d say a one on one match with Su Yung.
LA: My biggest goal lately is to enjoy my matches, have fun, and entertain the crowd.
LA: I’ve been eating a ton since my competition, favorite is probably a good cheeseburger and sweet potato fries. I have a wide range of what I listen to, like currently I am listening to Drake, but I’ll go from Slipknot to Tay Swift. I love lifting to Taylor and Britney Spears 😀
LA: Probably that I am a jokester, I love to laugh and talk but you hand me a mic and I lose my words.
LA: I had a blast wrestling in New Orleans a few years back, a few days before WrestleMania.
LA: I’d love to go to Europe or Japan. Not sure if it will happen since I can’t really take more than a week or so off from work.
LA: I enjoy weight lifting, Netflix, my dog and spending time with my fiance and family.
LA: Either nursing or working on myself in the gym.
H/F: Do you have any words for your fans?
