LadySports ::: Talking with La La

Q & A: La La

"Life is long but short, so do what you want!"

La La is the sort of woman you don't expect, and who makes her own opportunities. That was certainly the case for the PGWA, when she showed up in Millersville in the company of Tracy Taylor for "A Banner Night". She had simply come along with Tracy to keep her company on the drive... but she was also canny enough to bring her full gear along with her.

And so, when a wrestler who was booked for the card was unable to attend, La La was more than ready to suggest herself as the replacement. She most definitely impressed the fans there, and we're certain she'll impress you now in this exclusive new interview!


Ring Name:  La La (formerly Luscious )

Height:  5'8"

Weight:  Isn't there a rule that you 
         should NEVER ask a woman her weight???

Hair:    Brown sometimes black, my hair changes color 
         with my mood.  Today it's blonde.

Hometown:  Roberta, Georgia

LADYSPORTS: La La, welcome to LadySports Online!
La La: Thanks, I'm glad to be here with you.

LS: When did you first get into the sport?
LL: A little over two years ago, almost three. Wow, I just realized it's been almost three years.

LS: And who trained you?
LL: I've had quite a few trainers. I started when Deep South Wrestling was under the WWE, and Jody Hamilton and Bill DeMott were running the training school. Bill taught me how to roll and take bumps. Then I was trained under Tom Prichard and Brad Armstrong at Deep South. They were great trainers... they taught me the psychology and the moves. I'm training now with my good friends, Micha Taylor and the Island Girl, Tracy Taylor... who just so happens to be the PGWA Champion.

LS: What was your biggest influence to become a wrestler?
LL: My grandfather had a huge influence on me to become a wrestler... may he rest in peace. He LOVED wrestling... he watched all the brands and ordered all of the pay-per-views. At first, I wasn't allowed to watch wrestling; my grandmother and mother didn't approve, they thought it wasn't ladylike. I would get in trouble all the time for "sneaking" to watch the shows. Eventually, they stopped fighting me on it and let me watch. I loved the stories the wrestlers told in and out the ring. Wrestling was my kind of soap opera!

LS: What other sports and forms of fighting do you have an interest in?
LL: I love track. I use to run when I was in school, so during the Olympics you will find me in front of the TV for track and field. Football is running a close second, since my little brother plays college football. UFC is running a wonderful product now, and I see that the ladies are really stepping up in the sport. Oh, and let's not forget BASKETBALL. I can never wait until B-Ball season starts.

LS: How would you describe yourself in terms of attitude, personality and strengths?
LL: There is no description. I'm unpredictable.

LS: Describe a typical day of training for you. What is most important in your workout?
LL: Sitting in front of the TV with a bag of chips, chocolate, Oreo cookies, and whole milk. It's the diet every female wrestler should follow! My workouts vary, since my body adjusts so quickly. The most important part in my workout is my abs. I've been obsessed over my abs since high school.

LS: How would you best describe your ring style?
LL: I have a ring style? I thought I was just in there to kick butt and move on.

LS: Did you base your ring style or even your persona on any one particular wrestler?
LL: I did base it off of someone, but I'm not going to reveal who at this particular time.

LS: What specific signature moves are you best known for?
LL: We haven't given it a name yet, and it's hard to describe. Let's just say I've got legs and I know how to use them... .

LS: Have you ever been injured in the ring?
LL: [Knocks on wood] Not yet. I'm pretty careful, although people have tried to hurt me on purpose... thank goodness I'm double-jointed!

LS: Since you've begun have you ever had a "Why am I still doing this" moment?
LL: No way, this is something that I have always wanted to do. I have the power to control what I do and how I feel. If I start feeling that way, then it's time to take a break for a while.

LS: Who has been your toughest opponent?
LL: The Island Girl, Tracy Taylor. It's tough when you have to battle your friend. She knows my style, so I have to switch gears with her... plus I have to avoid that surf board hold.

LS: What has been your most memorable win?
LL: The one time I beat that guy, I don't remember his name... well, he wasn't worth remembering.

LS: What was your worst loss?
LL: I'm not even putting that over.

LS: Who is the one wrestler you would most like to face in the ring but haven't yet?
LL: If I had to pick anyone person male or female, it would be WWE's MVP. I'm cocky, he's cocky. He tries to incorporate a little martial arts in his matches, which blows me away. I could take him. Yeah, I just had an "I can beat Mike Tyson" moment.

LS: What type of match do you enjoy the most?
LL: I always enjoy tag team matches.

LS: What sort of reactions do you get from people when they learn you are a wrestler?
LL: First there's the blank stare, then all the typical reactions of shock.

LS: What is so special about this sport to you?
LL: No one person is the same, and at anytime anything can change. This is a sport where you NEVER say never.

LS: What are your fans like?
LL: They're just as crazy as I am. They have to be, because they don't know what to expect from me.

LS: If you had the power, what one thing would you do to improve the sport?
LL: A bigger push for the women. It's still pretty tough for women in this sport.

LS: Where have you wrestled and what titles if any have you held?
LL: Right now I'm running all over the U.S. Overseas is next. No titles yet... YET.

LS: What do you say to those who don't feel there's a place for women in the sport other than as a novelty?
LL: Step out of the 1950's.

LS: If you could have only one more final match, who would you most want to have as your opponent and why?
LL: It would be a mixed battle royal with all the people that I know in the sport, male and female. They know why.

LS: Any regrets?
LL: My only regret is that I didn't start sooner.

LS: What do you suppose you would be doing if you couldn't be in wrestling?
LL: I would be a TV/movie writer.

LS: What is your personal motto?
LL: Life is long but short, do what you want.

LS: What would make you most happy in life?
LL: Way too many things to name on this question.

LS: Anything else you'd like to add?
LL: Thanks LadySports for taking the time to deal with my craziness today. I had fun! And for the fans, I'll be seeing you sooner than you think... .
