Hi my Gabbers! So this weekend I did Rise/Impact. It was a seminar with Gail Kim, Jimmy Jacobs, Sonjay Dutt, and Scott Demore. Now I have been wrestling since 2001, but I am always learning. No matter who you are you can always learn more and improve. That is the mind set you need in life. Be proud of yourself but never satisfied. (stole that from Christian Guzman.) But its true. There is always something new to learn in whatever you do. In wrestling there is so much to learn. Different styles, reversals, characters, shapes and sizes, and I love it all. The more I know the more I appreciate it even more.
So, this weekend, I met so many great girls willing to learn. I do have to give it to Kevin that he has started RISE so there is a place for us girls to learn. When I started there wasn’t like an all girl school. Heck it was hard enough to get in a regular school. When I started most wrestling schools wouldn’t let girls join. I had to go almost 2hrs from my house in north New Jersey to train. Then still have to go to High school in the morning. There just weren’t that many opportunities for the girls that were lucky enough to train. The girls today have so much opportunities. As I’m a little jealous sometimes, not of the girls but how people look at women’s wrestling. But I’m more excited. There are so many girls now but there is room for everyone. I can’t wait to wrestle them all!
Well I’m not sure if this weekend will lead to any bookings or contracts. It is a step in the right direction. Even more so I am so happy I got to meet these girls and form new relationships. And I know that one day when I leave wrestling (not anytime soon) that women’s wrestling is in great hands.
If you want to see clips of the seminar, you can check it out on Impact Twitch. The matches I believe are on the Rise website.Check out my IG to see some of the girls from this weekend. Become fans of them and ask your local promotion to see a match between me and them.
