LADYSPORTS: Juliet, welcome to LadySports. When did you first get into the sport?
JULIET: It was late 2004 in Puerto Rico.

LS: Who trained you?
J: His name is Quique Cruz. He is a well known wrestler in Puerto Rico and Mexico.

LS: What was your biggest influence to become a wrestler?
J: Basically growing up watching it, and the fact that it's a fighting sport made it an interest. I'm a first generation wrestler, so it pretty much took all of my initiative to get in to this.

LS: What other sports do you have an interest in?
J: I love sports. I always have been an athlete. Started running track and cross country when I was about 9, until I moved on to volleyball and basketball when I was 14. After that I moved on to fighting sports. I was originally planning to do boxing, but decided instead to go with wrestling.

LS: How would you describe yourself in terms of attitude, personality and strengths? A: I have a complicated attitude. I'm a nice person at first, but if you are a jerk I'll be the total opposite. I have a quick temper... I just don't take crap from nobody! I'm extremely versatile and passionate.

LS: Describe a typical day of training for you. What is most important in your workout?
J: I love to work out. I love to do heavy weights, but I usually try not to leave any body part out of the work out, at least a little bit. I like full body workouts.

LS: How would you best describe your ring style?
J: My wrestling style is versatile. I adapt to any wrestling style I need to to get the job done.

LS: Did you base your ring style or even your persona on any one particular wrestler?
J: No... it's all me. I mean we are all inspired by someone at first... for me it was Lita... but I've never based my persona on anyone. The reason I said Lita is because of the fact that she was pretty much the one who initially broke most of the women's wrestling stereotypes all at once. That is what inspired me.

LS: What specific signature moves are you best known for?
J: Cazadora Bulldog, Northern Lights Suplex, Cazadora DDT, Boston Crab, Huracanrana from the top rope, Cross Body from top rope to outside, and the Flashback.

LS: Have you ever been injured in the ring?
J: Sure, there have been many, but the main ones are to my shoulder, back and a hip injury.

LS: Since you've begun, have you ever had a "Why am I still doing this" moment?
J: Yeah, probably like everyone else, but hey... it's part of it.

LS: Who have been your toughest opponents?
J: Black Rose... but she ain't the toughest, just the most annoying!

LS: Who are your allies?
J: I don't trust anybody... but if I had to say someone, it would be Mr.450 Hammett... for now.

LS: What has been your most memorable win?
J: The IWA Women's Championship Battle Royal in Caguas, Puerto Rico.

LS: What was your worst loss?
J: Women's Championship Tournament semi-final match against Black Rose.

LS: Who is the one wrestler you would most like to face in the ring, but haven't yet?
J: Mickie James. I'm just so curious about how it would turn out.

LS: What type of match do you enjoy the most?
J: One-on-One Grudge Matches

LS: What sort of reactions do you get from people when they learn you are a wrestler?
J: Some are totally surprised, and some are like "Oh, that makes sense"!

LS: What is so special about this sport to you?
J: It's a great way to get pent-up aggression released!

LS: What are your fans like?
J: Cool people. I mean, they've gotta be to like me.

LS: If you had the power, what one thing would you do to improve the sport?
J: Oh, no... no comment.

LS: Where have you wrestled?
J: Everywhere in good ol' stiff Puerto Rico, and I'm beginning to spread the word around here in the U.S., starting with Chicago.

LS: What are your thoughts on women participating in the sport?
J: We have to be strong, tough, smart, assertive and supportive towards one another. We can't let these men bully us around.

LS: What was your most unforgettable moment in the ring?
J: My comeback to IWA in Puerto Rico.

LS: Any regrets?
J: Sure, but that's how we learn, I guess.

LS: What do you suppose you would be doing if you couldn't be in wrestling?
J: Most probably be in another fighting sport.

LS: If you could have only one more final match, who would you most want to have as your opponent, and why?
J: Amazona... to prove a point.

LS: What is your personal motto?
J: "Only with unyielding courage can a warrior overcome those obstacles which at first appear overwhelming."

LS: What would make you most happy in life?
J: Truth.
