Former My Name Is guest Bête Noire has achieved quite a bit since she was busy introducing herself to the world in 2012 – not least of which was taking the time to go and live and train in Japan at the ICE Ribbon Dojo earlier this year. We’ve got that to talk about, but first… she’s just had laser eye surgery, and *newsflash* – apparently it kinda hurts. We talk about fun trips to A&E/ER rooms, including that time she had the imprint of a title belt basically TATTOOED across her forehead… whilst accompanied by BBC Documentary cameras. Speaking of the Beeb, we discuss last week’s Insane Fight Club documentary profiling Insane Championship Wrestling (BBC iPlayer link for UK residents), the reaction to the documentary and its stars, and naturally talk a bit about ICW’s spin-off female promotion Fierce Females, where Bête has gone to war with the likes of Viper and Crazy Mary Dobson. And of course, there’s Japan. How it happened, how it went, missing home, training differences between Scotland and Japan, and the feeling on whether she’ll be back there soon. Oh, and tea. Naturally. An intriguing 40+ minute chat. Enjoy.
