Turnbuckle Talk: Kaitlin Diemond


Last year we announced Kaitlin Diemond as a 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. You can read what we talked about below.kd

H/F: At what age did you begin watching wrestling?
KD: I was 7 years old when I started watching.

H/F: When did you know that you wanted to become a wrestler?
KD: I knew as soon as I started watching wrestling it was perfect for me.

H/F: Where did you train and who trained you?
KD: I’ve trained all over the world with Irish Mike Shea in Ontario, Canada. Apache, Super Crazy, Fenix in Mexico and Io Shirai in Japan.

H/F: How long have you been in the business?
KD: 11 years and counting.

H/F: Who are some of your influences or people that you look up to in the business?
KD: I’ve always admired Chris Jericho and Trish Stratus.

H/F: What is your entrance music? Any reason for picking this song?
KD: I use the Oedo Tai theme song as it represents the stable I am apart of in Japan, it’s unique and I never have to worry about anyone else using the same song as me!

H/F: What is the name of your finisher?
KD: Skankdrop, diva killer.

H/F: What have you learned about yourself in your journey of becoming a wrestler?
KD: I’ve learned that enjoying life is far more important than financial stability will ever be.

H/F: What has been your favorite part of your career so far?
KD: The past three years I have strictly wrestled. Everyone accomplished in that time is because I didn’t have a job to weigh me down. I can honestly say that’s the biggest accomplishment of it all.

H/F: Who would your dream match be against?
KD: Trish Stratus.

H/F: Other than the dream match opponent, is there anyone that you haven’t worked with that you would like to one day?
KD: Too many to name.

H/F: Ok let’s talk about Sabotage Wrestling now. Talk about how you became involved with Sabotage.
KD: I was brought in as apart of team Canada at the last Sabotage show to wrestle the Japanese girls, Kairi Hojo and Yoko Bito.

H/F: What would it mean to you to become the first ever Sabotage women’s champion?
KD: It would mean the world to me to represent Sabotage. It’s a start up company that has made a huge impact in just one event. They gave me a spotlight that many others would not have. I would be honoured to be their first champion and continue to shine that global spotlight on both myself and the company.

H/F: What can fans expect from you once you step in the ring?
KD: Expect the unexpected.

H/F: Anything you would like to say to the other women competing in this tournament?
KD: I’m willing to bet that nobody else in this tournament works as hard as I do just to get a tiny bit of recognition. I’ll do anything it takes to win. I have free health care in Canada so I’m not afraid to take it to the next level!

H/F: How are you planning on preparing for this tournament?
KD: Again professional wrestling is my job. I workout every single day. I don’t. I train. I wrestle. I’m always ready so the preparation remains the same.

H/F: Any words for your fans?
KD: Buy my merch or buy me a drink! In all seriousness, I appreciate everyone’s support and I was overwhelmed at the last show that anyone even knew who I was, let alone that they were huge fans of mine.
