Women's Wrestling Weekly recently interviewed Impact's Rebel. You can see the full interview at this link, and above, and see submitted highlights from the interview below!:
How Rebel has incorporated her experience in the LFL into her wrestling career? :
It prepared me for the hard hits...the training, the athleticism, the cardio...There’s tons of things that are similar to it...You have to be in shape, you have to be athletic...Getting slammed is similar to getting tackled…
On how her cheerleading as a Dallas Cowgirl has affected her wrestling:
Cheerleading definitely helped as well, I mean with the flexibility, the stamina, the cardio, the footwork...it all plays into it...When I was first learning wrestling, there were some moves... because I have a dance background, where I was like, “Oh, that’s like a swing dancing move...I was the only girl in my training...and I’m very cheerleader like and they were like, “Oh, she’s too peppy.”
Rebel tells us what she would like to do after wrestling:
Well, I like to say that I’m a Jill of all Trades, and I feel like I have done a little bit of everything...I would like to do more acting. I originally had move to LA to do acting and then I just went off to all these little alternate routes. And so I think I’d like to get back to that...After I win the Impact Wrestling Knockout Title!
Top five wrestlers Rebel would like to wrestle/re-match?
I definitely would like to wrestle Gail Kim again!...I’d like to wrestle Ric Flair [laughs]. I’d like to wrestle or actually spend some time because she is no longer with us but Sherri Martel. I think she was pretty amazing. When I was Evil Rebel of the Dollhouse I definitely studied Sherri Martel and just think she’s awesome!
