Q & A: Onyx

"Winning and kickin’ butt!"

As relatively short-lived as the "Women of Wrestling" league was, the weekly show, 
broadcast nationwide, highlighted several truly skilled young ladies.  

Chief among them was the cowgirl known as Bronco Billie.  With the end of WOW, 
Billie stayed in wrestling, except now she is better known under the name of "Onyx".  
And like that namesake mineral, she is tough, beautiful and highly coveted!


In addition to wrestling, she has also acted on stage, in such films as 
"Minority Report" and "Austin Powers in Goldmember", and on television in, 
among other series, "That ‘70’s Show", "The Shield" and "The Practice".  
And, it should come as no surprise to anyone, she has been a beauty pageant 
winner as well!
