Marti Belle Still Aims To Wrestle Full Time

Former TNA wrestler and Mae Young Classic participant Marti Belle spoke to WPW Weekly recently! You can see highlights below, and the full podcast at this link.

How her heritage influences her persona in the ring:

It is interesting because when people ask me what my character is I just tell them that it is me. In the ring, no matter whether I am the good guy or the bad guy, I am always going to be super sassy, which has always been a part of my personality. My grandmother was always the sassiest person I had ever met in my life. She always had a comeback for something and always had something to say. I don’t think it is part of my culture, but also where I grew up in New York. I grew up with a lot of boys, and grew up playing a lot of sports, so I had to be tough and develop a thick skin, but I definitely believe it plays a little bit into who I am in the ring. I am so proud of being a New Yorker and being a Dominican, so I do think that all those things do kind of shine through---whether it is me cutting promos in Spanish, or my attitude, whatever it is. I have been told recently that I am the nicest New Yorker they’ve ever met. I thank them and tell them that my grandfather would be so proud. I am just be at the end of the day.”

Goals for her future in pro wrestling:

I believe everyone’s goal is to not only make money in professional wrestling but make a living doing it. At the end of the day, we all want to say that we all live good, comfortable lives, and be able to start a family because of wrestling. I think that is really just my goal. I got so used to working full time as a wrestler, which was what I was doing when working for NWL, that is something that I want to get back to knowing that I don’t have to worry about having enough bookings. I want to be able to feel like if you are going to book me I am already booked, you would have to get in right now because I don’t know what would happen in a few months. That is my main goal---I want to be wrestling full time.
