I started watching wrestling right around the time of the first Wrestlemania. I saw Hulk Hogan, Mr T. Roddy Piper, Tito Santana and Andre "the Giant", and was in awe. But, what really captured my attention was Leilani Kai, and Wendi Richter. I was hooked!
And I still am, and I still consider Leilani Kai one of my all time favorite wrestlers. As soon as I could, I packed up and left my home in New York to com to Massachusetts to train with Walter "Killer" Kowalski. "Killer" picked me up at the Greyhound station with little more than a backpack and a big dream, and I haven't looked back since.
Those first few months were hard, in a new state, with little money, no job and no place to stay, but I was lucky enough to meet some great people at Kowalski's how helped me not only get settled, but helped me hone my skills as a wrestler.
My first match was against "Rambling Rose", in Franklin, MA, and since then I have been lucky enough to wrestle many of the greats in this sport, including the woman currently known as Chyna, who also trained with Killer. Just over a year into my training I captured the IWF ladies championship. I later lost it to Chyna, but when she jumped to the WWF, I regained it, and held it until the summer of 2000, when I left New England. I reget not having had the chance to win it back from her though.
In August of 1998, I met the Fabulous Mooalah and Mae Young for the first time, and also suffered my first (and so far only) realy injury, a broken ankle, which required 8 screws and a metal plate to reconstruct. This, of course set me back a bit, but it's now healed better than ever. That injury really gave me the inspiration I needed to get in the gym and train hard.
I guess that's it in a nutshell. I'm currently out in Arizona, working to make a name for myself out here, still wrestling on the independant scene, and still challenging myself to get better. Eventually, I know it'll pay off!
