Independent wrestler Priscilla Kelly was recently interviewed by Wrestle:List. You can check out highlights of the interview below, or the full discussion at this link.
"Originally I wanted to be the Gypsy Princess but it ended up turning into more of an evil succubus. Right now I am very dark and sexual so my character and gimmick has evolved in the last two years a lot. I mean I’m pretty well known for doing some specific things in the ring such as grinding, biting, licking and even kissing. I came in to this business and everyone just looked at me as a little girl, I was also raised really strict, I guess I wanted to break out of that. I wanted to be open with myself and it slowly became what it is. In the back of my head it’s also a way to show equality, I know it sounds crazy. One of my catchphrases is “I like girls and boys” and I think its a way to show off equality, that you can be open with your body and your sexuality."
Comparisons to Paige:
"I get some much stuff about looking like Paige. My hair has been black since I was 13 and I’ve never looked back. I can’t dye it any other color as its expensive and my hair would probably fall out as it’s black (Laughing). I tried tanning heavy early on and I it was a pain having to tan every week, it was destroying my skin. I finally taught myself to be comfortable in the skin I was born with. I’m just myself. You have one or two traits in common with someone who works for the WWE and you’re always going to be compared to them."
