North Starz was able to catch up with exciting newcomer Flo Riley of Montreal, Quebec. Flo Riley has accomplished a lot of great things thus far in a short time period. Flo Riley has a great attitude and is a hard worker who is eager to learn. So wrestling fans keep your eyes open for this young wrestling superstar.
North Starz: 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?
Flo Riley: I grew up watching wrestling. I used to watch it with my father when I was a kid. Then, my brothers started to watch it. Even my mom at some point. I used to play with my brothers that we were wrestlers. We would dress up as the WWE superstars, do their entrances and fight a match with a planned winner. I had such great memories of that time. Unfortunately, I never thought for a second that I could do that with my life. For me, it was only, men and women fighting on my TV. But, I was also so young. Then, WWE went PG and I stopped watching wrestling until last year when I rediscovered wrestling and it was so clear; I had to do this. I was 21 years old. For me it was now or never and that’s it so last September, I started to train to become a professional wrestler.
North Starz: What are some of your hobbies and interests outside of wrestling?
Flo Riley: Honestly, I don’t have much free time with wrestling but when I do I love watching movies, TV shows, I watch anything on Netflix, read comics, play video games and write stories.
North Starz: Tell me about where you train to become a professional wrestler and the people who have supported you the most there so far.
Flo Riley: I train at the Torture Chamber Pro Wrestling Dojo run by Dru Onyx. This school is so special to me. The first time I walked in I knew that this place was for me but I never thought that I would find a second family. We are all very supportive of each other and Dru is simply the best. I have to admit that at first I was kind of intimated by him but now I am happy to say that he is not only my coach but a true friend. He is always there to answer my endless questions or taking extra time to help me to perfect my wrestling. I want to be the best and he wants me to be too. It is really cool to have your coach believe in you like that and I really feel honoured.
North Starz: Do you have any wrestlers that you look up to or are your inspiration?
Flo Riley: When I was young I loved Rey Mysterio but currently I love Finn Balor, Sasha Banks and AJ Styles. In fact, Finn and Sasha were the ones that made me love wrestling again. (continue reading…)
