Last year we announced Ray Lyn as the second 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.
H/F: At what age did you begin watching wrestling?
RL: I started watching wrestling when I was young with my cousins, I was the only girl in my family. I was obsessed with all things fighting and my mom put me in martial arts at the age of four. I quit watching wrestling in my teen years. When I was about 21, I got a job at a bar named Cheers and my regular customers loved wrestling. We started watching it every Monday night during my shift. Needless to say I was hooked!
H/F: When did you know that you wanted to become a wrestler?
RL: I was 22 when I started thinking about wrestling. I wanted to do it but it wasn’t until after my father passed, when I was 24, that I got serious and motivated to follow my dream.
H/F: Where did you begin your training and who trained you?
RL: I started my training at OVW and my original trainers were Nick “Eugene” Dinsmore and Al Snow. I’ve trained at many other places. Most recently, I spent time at HOT in Detroit learning from Truth Martini.
H/F: How long have you been in the business?
RL: I’ve been wrestling for three years now.
H/F: Who are some of your influences or people that you look up to in the business?
RL: My husband Dylan Bostic is my rock, he’s taught me so much and he is super supportive of my career.
H/F: What is your entrance music? Any reason for picking this song?
RL: Miley Cyrus dub step remix of Wrecking Ball and well, duh because it’s the best song ever!
H/F: What is the name of your finishers?
RL: My finish is the Ray Cray O it’s a cutter outta nowhere!! I also do the wrecking ball, that is a bronco buster. Then, there is the Raydar bomb… It’s a splash of the ropes.
H/F: What have you learned about yourself in your journey of becoming a wrestler?
RL: I’m so much stronger mentally and physically than I ever thought I could be. I could have quit so many times through injuries and other BS, but I just keep on trucking!
H/F: What has been your favorite part of your career so far?
RL: That’s hard to say, I’ve gotten to do some pretty dope stuff. Lots of traveling and some amazingly talented opponents.
H/F: Who would your dream match be against?
RL: That’s also a tough question. There are so many amazing women out there working their asses off. I couldn’t just pick one person for my dream match. I was lucky to work with Mickie James early in my career, it would be cool to work with her again now that I have grown as a performer and wrestler!
H/F: Other than the dream match opponent, is there anyone that you haven’t worked with that you would like to one day?
RL: Too many to start naming, so many ladies to wrestle out there!
H/F: Ok let’s talk about Sabotage Wrestling now. Talk about how you became involved with Sabotage.
RL: I moved to California on October 1 and I had gotten in contact with some or the girls in the area that I would be moving to. I kept seeing flyers for the show and thinking how sick the line up was. I’m like, wow so many talented women! The girls I had talked to told me to come check out the show. And I was lucky enough to be put in a match!
H/F: What would it mean to you to become the first ever Sabotage women’s champion?
RL: Winning the women’s championship would really jump start my west coast wrestling career!
H/F: What can fans expect from you once you step in the ring?
RL: Lights camera action it’s go time!
H/F: Anything you would like to say to the other women competing in this tournament?
RL: Good luck broads 😘
H/F: How are you planning on preparing for this tournament?
RL: Same way I prepare for every match, squats and hip hop music!
H/F: Any words for your fans?
RL: Be ready for Ray Cray coming in like a wrecking ball 2017 😘
H/F: Any last words that you would like to add?
RL: I’m dope in the ring and I’m magic on the mic!
