LADYSPORTS: Welcome to LadySports, Auctavia! Tell us, when did you first get into the sport?
A: I started going to watch indie shows with a friend, and from the moment I saw my first match, I knew I wanted to be a wrestler. A couple years later, I finally was able to get my break and show my passion and potential in a ring.
LS: And who trained you?
A: I was taught my basics by Kornerstone and a few other of the guys at S.A.W.E,. then Mike Plezin took over my training after about half-a-year or so.. I’ve also been taught so much by so many other people in the business willing to share their knowledge, and am very thankful to all of them.
LS: Who have been your biggest inspirations to be a wrestler?
A: Bambi and Mike Plezin. Bambi showed me that a woman can work like a man or better in a male dominated sport if she truly has the desire, ability, and heart, and Mike has taught me more than I thought one person ever could, and has always just been a wonderful person to me and helped so much every step of the way. He has a wonderful mind for the business.
LS: What are you like in the ring, personality-wise?
A: Business. I'm there to wrestle and that’s what’s going to be seen. Ill poke fun a little, but then I’m all about what I’m there to do…which takes a lot if done right.
LS: Describe a typical day of training for you. What is most important in your workout?
A: Light meal, drinking a good bit of fluids, stretching, then time to get in the ring. I start out by running ropes and going over basics for a few minutes; the rest depends on if there’s someone working out with me or not. If not, I have a match with myself…if there is, we'll have a friendly match with each other, or go over ideas and such.
LS: How would you best describe your ring style?
A: Majority of the time it’s working around my size, so its most often big moves, technical and grappling.
LS: Who have been your toughest opponents to date?
A: I would say Irresistible Danielle in Poplarville, Mississippi…that girl had a fire to her, and though I tried hard, I was the one with my shoulders still on the mat after the three count was finished.
LS: And who have been your biggest allies?
A: It’s hard to have allies in this dog-eat-dog business with everyone turning on you in the wink of an eye, but if I had to say, it would probably be Eve Christopher…she taught me that looking pretty is part of it too, and though we have our differences and feuds, I will always have major respect for this woman.
LS: What has been your most memorable win?
A: I was in a battle royal for New Breed Wrestling in Montgomery and went to the apron to throw out the only opponent also left…my feet didn’t hit the floor with the others, so my hand was raised as the winner!
LS: And how about your worst loss?
A: My worst loss would definitely have to be the triple threat match against Hott Lips Lynn Farley and Eve Christopher: I bet my long, curly hair against the SAWE Women’s Championship belt. I’m still feeling the loss every time I look in the mirror.
LS: Who is the one wrestler you would most like to face in the ring, but haven't yet?
A: Oh, Bambi all the way. That woman has done so much for the females of the wrestling industry and she has amazing ability.
LS: And if you had to retire tomorrow and could have only one more match, who would you most like to wrestle?
A: That’s hard to decide with all the wonderful people I’ve met in the business, but when it comes down to it, it’s got to be whoever would want to wrestle me that showed the most "spark" that all pro wrestlers should have.
LS: What is your favorite style of match?
A: Cage matches are the most fun to me.
LS: Have you ever been injured in the ring?
A: Just a few bumps and bruises. I usually go rather unscathed.
LS: If you had the power, what one thing would you do to improve the sport?
A: I would make sure every single wrestler on the circuit, be it a big show or little, had professionalism.
LS: Any other sports you enjoy?
A: Gymnastics mainly…little bit of MMA also.
LS: Any regrets?
A: That I didn’t start wrestling sooner.
LS: What would you do if you couldn't be in wrestling?
A: I would be creating art, mostly.
LS: Can you tell us what the one piece of advice you would give to someone just starting out in the sport would be?
A: Listen. You can learn from everything and can always learn more no matter how far you go or how long you’ve been around.
LS: What is your personal motto?
A: Whatever floats your boat.
LS: And lastly, anything else you'd like to add?
A: This sport is my love. I’ve put my mind, and body into it, and will continue to do so. It’s not a cakewalk and not for the faint of heart or weak-minded. It takes a lot out of you, but gives it back in more ways than I can say.
LS: Thanks so much for speaking with us, Auctavia!
A: You’re extremely welcome! I find it wonderful you guys are putting the spotlight on talented females, so thank you as well.
