Impact Wrestling's Amber Nova spoke to Interactive Wrestling Radio for an interview recently. You can hear the full podcast above, and check out highlights below.
What caused this Women's Revolution in wrestling:
"There's just so many options to go off of. I think it is wonderful I"m able to come up in wrestling at this time, as in any other time. I'm grateful to be coming up when I am. Women are getting some great opportunities. I'm grateful to be coming up during the time that I am. Women are getting a chance to showcase their talent. They're getting more TV time. They're getting more time period. I think it is awesome!"
Ronda Rousey entering wrestling:
"That is a whole other opponent right there! (laughs) Bless her. That is a bad ass woman. And, I absolutely love her Roddy Piper style and gear that she's rocking. It totally suits her."
The line between women being eye candy and serious athletes:
"I don't think it has to be sex appeal. It could just be attraction. The males come out with body oil, six pack abs. I think I can hang with the boys, I have abs as well. They want to show off their abs and their bodies. You want to be an attraction and you want to be attractive. It doesn't have to be sex. It could be being a fit, fitness model. Being a role model for kids saying, "Hey, even if you guys just do push ups and go for a run. Keep your body active! Don't sit in the house and play video games all day or whatever it is." Women are allowed to be proud of how they look. I work hard on my body. I think I can flaunt it a little just like the men do."
If making it to WWE is one of her goals:
"That is THE goal. That is THE goal! (laughs)"
Who she'd like to work in WWE:
"There's a few. Asuka. She's a tough one. I actually have a show coming up March 16th for AWE, Atomic Wrestling Entertainment. It is in Cocoa, FL. I am wrestling Tenille, the former Emma from WWE. My next match should always be my best match and then the one after that and the one after that. It is the way to perfect my craft."
