Before you listen to this interview, have a read of this to get up to speed.

As someone who wrestles in southern California, NY Knockout Nikki was right in the middle of the controversy about EPIC WAR promoter Gary Yap, as she was the promotion’s champion, but elected to give up the title in the wake of the storm which erupted following Yap’s podcast.

As part of this episode of Fight Like A Girl, Nikki discusses the effect the comments about SoCal wrestlers being “clothed porn stars” and “stroke material” had on her peers, as well as her feelings about cleaning up the perception of women wrestlers both in front of and behind the curtain. It’s a pretty absorbing interview that highlights Nikki’s passion for wrestling, and how she wants others to have the same passion. Have a listen.
