One On One Interview With Second Generation Wrestling Star Liiza Hall!

Liiza1Wednesday September 14, 2016

North Starz.ca had the opportunity to interview second generation professional wrestling star Liiza Hall who has made quite an impact on the Western Canada wrestling scene.  Whether it’s wrestling her older sister Bambi Hall or taking on all challenges Liiza Hall is looking to show her talents throughout the rest of Canada and the USA in the very near future.

a

North Starz.ca:  First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time for doing this interview and I hope you are doing well. My first question for you is why did you decide to become a professional wrestler? Have you always been a wrestling fan?

Liiza Hall:  I have been a wrestling fan since the first wrestling show that I ever went to with my mom when I was 6 years old. I watched Kyle O’Reilly reach his arms out to the crowd at an ECCW show and sitting in the front row I yelled my butt off for him to somehow get out of the submission he had been avoiding the entire match. The first time I knew that I wanted to be a wrestler was when my mom Raven Lake brought me to a training session with her and I snuck into the ring after the class was over and tried to jump off the ropes. All I could see was the mat below me and the lights shining into the ring.  Every show or training session that I got to go to after that nobody could keep me from jumping back into that ring.

North Starz.ca:  Tell me about where you train to become a professional wrestler and the people who have supported you the most there so far.

Liiza Hall:  I started my training at All Star Wrestling in Vancouver, BC with Michelle Starr and The Great Kisaki.  These two men have pushed me harder than anyone has ever pushed me before to be the best wrestler I possibly can be.  They’ve taught me that even when you mess something up you don’t sit there and complain, you get up and try again and work on it until you get it right. Both of these men have supported me through my career as well as my family.

liizaNorth Starz.ca:  Do you have any wrestlers that you look up to or are your inspiration?

Liiza Hall:  One of my favourite wrestlers of all time has to be the one and only Macho Man Randy Savage.  In the ring and during promos he had such an attitude and personality that kept me intrigued and wanting to be apart of. Whether he was turning a full 360 degrees to another 180, and back another 180, or balancing creamers on his head; he was always better then everyone else and he made sure he let everyone know just that.

a

North Starz.ca:  Reflect back and tell me about the emotions that you had when you stepped into the ring for your first professional wrestling match.

Liiza Hall:  My very first match was September 11, 2015 tagging with Bambi Hall against Malia Hosaka and Chelsea Green.  No matter how long you have been wrestling these two women can strike the fear into you before you even set foot in that ring. Wrestling has been what I’ve wanted to do my entire life, so getting to wrestle with these ladies in my very first match was amazing.

a

North Starz.ca:  How would you describe your wrestling style and what are some of your best holds and most devastating moves?

Liiza Hall:  In the ring I’m definitely a more technical wrestler, I may not be jumping off the top rope or picking people up but when I put on the Liiza Lock its almost impossible to get out. The Liiza lock is a modified cattle mutilation when they are sitting on their butt while I have a double underhook submission, bridging over their head.

Liiza Hall:  My toughest opponent has definitely been my older sister Bambi Hall.  We have had multiple matches together and I have only beaten her a handful of times.  Every time you think you have her she is always bringing out something new. This lady is always changing her style and that only makes me a better wrestler.  I learn from every match and change whatever I need to in order to win.

a

North Starz.ca:  What are your thoughts on the women’s independent professional wrestling scene in Canada?

Liiza Hall:  The women wrestling in Canada right now are showing exactly what wresting is all about.  They know what they are doing inside and outside the ring. Even though we do have fantastic girls right now, there are not enough of us! For example, Maddison Miles is one of only two women wrestlers in the Maritimes right now! Women’s wrestling is what people want to see right now and at every show we are proving just how much we deserve to be in the ring and why women’s wrestling should be expanding.

Liiza2North Starz.ca:  What are you’re wrestling related goals heading into 2017?

Liiza Hall:  In this next year I plan on traveling and wrestling as much as possible, whether that’s across Canada or out of the continent. Wrestling is what I love to do and there is nothing that is going to stop me making a great career and name for myself.

a

North Starz.ca:  Thank you so much for taking the time to answer these questions and it looks like you have a tremendous career ahead of you.  I am looking forward to following your career and watching you win your first championship and achieve all of your wrestling goals.  Take care and all the best heading into 2017.
