LADYSPORTS: When did you first get into the sport? 21st CENTURY FOX: I got into wrestling about four and a half years ago.

LS: Who trained you?
TCF: I was trained in Cambridge , Ontario by Sid Summers.

LS: What was your biggest influence to become a wrestler?
TCF: I wasn't a huge wrestling fan growing up, though I did watch it a little bit. I really started getting into it because of The Rock... he really made it look like something I wanted to do.

LS: What other sports do you have an interest in?
TCF: I like to watch and play football, and was on my girls high school football team for three years.

LS: How would you describe yourself in terms of attitude, personality, likes, dislikes, and strengths?
TCF: In the ring, I like to exude confidence. I like to show that I can wrestle, and at times will do anything for the win. I love doing matches that have a bit of humor to them, and that tell a great story from beginning to end. I think that that is my strength: being able to laugh at myself, it's a lost art.

LS: What is your most marked characteristic?
TCF: That's a good question... and one I don't think I could answer. I think you might have to ask the fans about that one.

LS: What are you favorite foods, music, clothes, cars?
TCF: I don't tend to really have favorites of things per se, but my favorite food I guess would be Chinese, music is rap and hip hop, clothes are jeans, and car, I guess, would be an Escalade.

LS: Describe a typical day of training for you. What is most important in your workout?
TCF: The most important thing for me is how I feel after I work out.

LS: How would you best describe your ring style?
TCF: My ring style is mostly technical. I like using different holds and submissions. I'll fly in the air if I have to, but I mostly stick to the ground.

LS: What moves are you best known for?
TCF: I'm most known for my Sidewalk Slam, my submission move which is a version of a Tequila Sunrise called the Foxmission, and my finishers... the 21st Century Drop (Bulldog) or Fox Drop (Sitdown Rock Bottom).

LS: Have you ever been injured in the ring?
TCF: Yeah, I severely bruised my tailbone... I've bruised my knees... had every muscle in my left leg swollen... chipped teeth... but that comes with the territory.

LS: Who have been your toughest opponents?
TCF: Defintately Cheerleader Melissa is way up there. Misty Haven is really tough, too. And Elmira the Iron Maiden... our rivalry will never end.

LS: Who are your allies?
TCF: I don't really roll with anyone in particular, but my big bro Reggie Marley is definitely an ally.

LS: What has been your most memorable win?
TCF: When I faced Ivory in a wedding veil on a pole match with Molly Holly as the guest ref. It was fun and I cheated, but I still won!

LS: What was your worst loss?
TCF: I don't know what my worst loss is because I learn from every experience, but I guess it would be against Cheerleader Melissa, because she took my newly won title! But I got it back.

LS: Who is the one wrestler you would most like to face in the ring, but havenít yet?
TCF: I would really like to face Mercedes Martinez, because I know how tough she is and it would be a great fight.

LS: What type of match do you enjoy the most?
TCF: I enjoy just a straight-up wrestling match. No fancy stipulations, just a one-on-one to see who'll come out on top.

LS: What sort of reactions do you get from people when they learn you are a wrestler?
TCF: It's always the same. "You're a wrestler?!? Wow... I'd better not mess with you!"

LS: What is so special about this sport to you?
TCF: Everything. Just being able to be in front of the fans and giving them a good show and having fun. I'm happy.

LS: What are your fans like?
TCF: My fans are very respectful and appreciate this business and everything we do for it. I love them!

LS: What is the one thing you would most like to change about the sport?
TCF: Good question. Just to have women's wrestling taken more seriously on TV. In the indies I think the fans know that we bust our asses just like the guys do, but on TV it's not really shown that there are ladies who can wrestle and have it be just as entertaining as the guys.

LS: If you had the power, what one thing would you do to improve the sport?
TCF: To have it be taken more seriously within the industries of sports and entertainment.

LS: Where have you wrestled, and what titles have you held?
TCF: I've wrestled in Ontario , Quebec , New York , Pennsylvania , Ohio , Michigan . I've been OSPW Women's Champion, IAW Women's Champion, and I am the current PWA Elite Women's Champion.

LS: What are your thoughts on women participating in the sport?
TCF: I have respect for any woman in this sport who love what they do and have respect for it and are in it for the right reasons. And no, trying to date hot guys and get rich is not a right reason.

LS: What was your most unforgettable moment in the sport?
TCF: My very first match. It was the moment that got this whole thing going.

LS: Any regrets?
TCF: Never have regrets. Never look back.

LS: What would you do if you couldnít be in wrestling?
TCF: I wouldn't want to know.

LS: What is your personal motto?
TCF: Don't worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own. Matthew 6:34. In other words, live for today.

LS: What would make you most happy in life?
TCF: To be happy. And making wrestling my fulltime and only job.

LS: Anything else youíd like to add?
TCF: I just want everyone out there to know that following your dreams is easy, but getting your dreams is hard work. It takes no effort to get nothing but a little effort to get you something. Take care of yourselves first because when you're happy everything will follow in its place. Peace.
