So here it is. The final of my throwbacks on my past ten years in New Zealand pro wrestling. For this final post, I want to touch on something that is most important, not just in pro wrestling but in life. And that’s the importance of women supporting each other and lifting each other up. It’s all too easy to tear each other down. To make someone else look bad in order to put yourself
“Holy shi*t that’s a lot of people!” I remember thinking after stepping in the ring at Auckland Armageddon 2012. This was the year Bushwhacker Luke came to visit and we were located in the 3rd shed at ASB Showgrounds. I entered the ring with Danny Jacobs as we normally do. Parading around with pride in ourselves. However, the crowd didn’t take too kindly to us and were hurling abuse of all sorts. “Boo!” “You Suck!”
Following on from last weeks’ post, I’ve been thinking all week about what to share from the past 10 years in New Zealand pro wrestling. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m going to share with you some of my proudest moments and biggest achievements, as decided by me. Recently, when clearing out some of my boxes, I stumbled across an old book. Inside that book was a list. This list contained goals as set
  Where do I begin!? This December marks 10 years since my professional wrestling debut. When asked to write about the past 10 years, my first thought was, “wow… a lot has happened in 10 years”. Safe to say, this journey through my history in the NZ professional wrestling scene will be detailed across a few posts.   Let’s begin at day one. Before I even debuted. Before I ever started training, I was a

Imagine a place that has varying landscapes, from deserts to rainforests. From seaside cliffs and valleys to active volcanoes. Yes. This place exists, and I quickly learnt why the locals call it “paradise”. We spent 8 magical days in Hawaii. In desperate need of a break from the fast-paced life we live, as soon as we landed in Honolulu, we jumped on to the next flight straight to Kona on the big island, Hawaii. We

Aloha from Hawaii

Today, I’m in Hawaii. I actually wrote this post before I left because there’s no way I was taking my laptop with me… I’ve got to leave room for shopping, after all. 😉 When I look back, it’s crazy how many places I’ve travelled to. I truly feel blessed to have had the opportunities I’ve had to go to the places I’ve gone. Growing up, I never thought I would get very far yet I

What being vulnerable taught me

This week, I challenged myself to try something different. I challenged myself to open-up and be vulnerable in the workplace. What I mean by this is that I made a choice to be 100% real and authentic with the people in my company. I’m not saying that I sat down and had a big cry with them all, sharing my feelings and what-not. That would be pretty inappropriate, to say the least. What I meant

The power of the mind

Have you ever felt like your entire world was crashing down around you? Like you were completely alone. Negative thoughts flying through your mind, circling around like vultures picking apart a dying animal? I had a moment like this recently. It’s not something I’m proud of and it’s extremely difficult to share this with anyone, especially here. This is not to say I was unhappy with life. Quite the opposite. I’m really happy. I have
What’s the most difficult thing you’ve ever had to tell someone? This past week on social media, people were encouraged to write “me too” if they had experienced sexual assault or harassment. This was an attempt to let the world know just how big of an issue sexual assault is. I was one of those who posted “me too” however, my experiences have been minor in comparison with what too many of my friends have

I did it!

I did it! 😀 I had my first boxing fight!! I know. I know. The biggest question on everyone’s mind is, “did you win?!” So, for those looking for a quick answer, I’ll tell you straight up. After 3 grueling 2-minute rounds of non-stop punching, guarding and moving. The judges made their call. I had lost. “Unanimous decision” they declared in favor of my opponent, Natasha Wheeler. An up and comer who has been training
