Fight Like A Girl: Taya Valkyrie

From Canadian indies to performing in front of 21,000 fans at AAA‘s TripleMania XX in Mexico City – Taya Valkyrie has had a pretty amazing 2012 so far. On this edition of Fight Like A Girl, we discuss the what the move from Canada to Mexico meant for her both culturally and from a working point of view, how easy it was to adjust, and whether she had to unlearn/relearn how to wrestle with the lucha style. We also talk about World of Hurt, where Taya was a cast member on both the first and second seasons, and compare how working with Lance Storm on Season 1 was to working with “Rowdy” Roddy Piper on Season 2 – and just how much anybody knew about what was going on. We also touch *very* briefly on the reported WWE deal she was offered late last year, her short term goals in Mexico and she reveals her wrestling inspiration.

You’ll hear more from this woman, so get the lowdown now.

WOW Podcast #29 with Kc Spinelli & Dave Prazak


Episode 29 with Kc Spinelli & SHIMMER promoter Dave Prazak

Time to welcome back friend of the show Dave Prazak for our newest podcast for a look back at the epic SHIMMER tapings from earlier this month. Dave shares his thoughts on the size of the roster (which totalled 49 across the two days), and who really stood out from the pack – both new and old – and how 2012 is shaping up. Dave is, as usual, forthright and honest in his opinions. Then we’re joined by World of Hurt’s Kc Spinelli to talk, yes, the greatness of Kc Spinelli. We also talk about This Wrestling Life, lots of Nicole Matthews mentions, failing to graduate from ECCW’s Academy, and participating on World of Hurt with Lance Storm and Roddy Piper. How fake is reality TV anyway? Thoughts on recent WWE signees Irena Janjic, Tenille Tayla & Taya Valkyrie – and just how much of a gimmick was The French Stallion? Don’t know Spinelli? You will after this show!

WOW Podcast #22 with Nicole Matthews


Episode 22 with Nicole Matthews

The Women of Wrestling Podcast raises the “awesomeness” factor to never before seen levels as we welcome the current ECCW SuperGirls Champion Nicole Matthews to the show. Nicole is very forthright in her opinions, and pulls no punches discussing her career to date, including the pride she takes in being a female athlete. She recounts stories of being a wrestling fan growing up, how she broke in with ECCW alongside Veronika Vice, wrestling the likes of Rebecca Knox and Nattie Neidhart within her first year in the business, her inner “mark”, balcony dives, and breaking out as one half of the Canadian NINJAs alongside partner Portia Perez. We discuss exactly what makes their partnership work so well, including how each person complemented the other, and mention the team appearing on the last season of Wrestlicious as “The Naughty Schoolgirls” (and why that won’t be happening again any time soon). We talk about her big showcase matches in singles competition in SHIMMER, her feud with Jessie McKay, and discuss Lance Storm’s World of Hurt, including recent WWE signings Irena & Tenille, the fabulous WOH captioning, and wonder just why she isn’t *on* the show. We also discuss WWE, “the WWE look” and whether that’s anything that she aspires to do with her life, and what’s happening across the Great White North from Femmes Fatales to ECCW. Oh, and don’t mention the term “SuperGirls” to her either…
