On “Slammin’ Sunday” wrestling fans got to know Beauty Slammers star, Canadian Diemond!

Q: Of all the career choices out there, WHY wrestling?
A: Wrestling is the perfect combo of physicality and performance. I was always heavily involved with both as a kid. I took karate and martial arts from age 3-13 and began my wrestling training when I was 14. In high school I fell in love with drama and was cast in many plays.

Q: With the advent of Beauty Slammers expanding the Canadian market of an all-female promotion, what does an effort such as this say about the significance of women in our sport?
A: This says a lot about women’s wrestling as a whole, in our country. It proves that the fans care about more than women who look good, they actually give a damn about the results of the matches and the talent that is competing.

a

Q: My proudest moment in my career thus far has been…
A: Living and competing in Mexico has been a dream come true. Getting the chance to work for AAA in 3 non-televised events here, is what I would consider my biggest accomplishments to date.

a

Q: After being on the road for an extended period of time, my ideal method of relaxation would be…
A: Meditation, yoga, massage, and then a long hot bath. Nothing will heal your body, mind, and soul more than these simple exercises.

a

Q: If you could step into the ring with a grapplerette from wrestling’s past, whom would you choose?
A: Trish Stratus, because I believe she is THE woman wrestler of my generation, and everything about her is exactly the opposite of me, so I believe we would complement each other’s styles wonderfully.

a

Q: Are you a women’s WRESTLER or are you a DIVA? Is women’s wrestling perceived as you believe it should be? If not, what will it take to change that perception?
A: I am a WRESTLER. My nickname was actually the Anti-Diva for many years on the independent scene before Serena Deeb “randomly” was named that in her WWE stint. I still have a bone to pick with her about that. Now, the name belongs to another woman, but the fact of the matter is that I’m the original, and I don’t need to be balled to prove it. That name honestly describes me as a human being, in and out of the ring. I’ve been a tomboy my entire life, still am for that matter. I rarely wear makeup or do my hair – things a DIVA would do on a regular basis. I just don’t find them necessary. If anything, it’s more of a distraction for my opponent in the ring, constantly fixing themselves trying to achieve this specific look. Nobody is perfect, so if the fans don’t accept me exactly as I am, then I want nothing to do with them in any capacity! Women’s wrestling will probably never be where it’s supposed to be, and I don’t know if I can change it. All I can do is try by not selling myself out or conforming to these everyday diva “norms” that are so prevalent in today’s sport.
