10 Questions Wit... Aja Perera (@OSnap_AppleJax) By Craig Jarrett

1. When did you become a fan of wrestling?

I’ve been a fan all my life, but I got back into it around 2005.

2. When did you decide to become a wrestler?

I actually never planned to be a wrestler. My sister talked me into it, so I went to a training session and instantly fell in love with it.

3. How hard was it to get into a male dominated industry?

It’s a little struggle. You have to fight harder for the respect from fans as well as male wrestlers and bookers. You have to constantly prove you’re more than a sex symbol or just doing it for the attention. We have to train and work twice as hard as males in this industry.

4. Do you think people views on women’s wrestling being just “something good to look at” is changing?

I think it is, very slowly. Haha a big part of that view was how the WWE portrayed their Diva’s division. And finally they’re allowing there women’s talent to show their true abilities as well as get more match time, so they’re starting to get taken more seriously. We still have a ways to go though.

5. Which female wrestlers do you enjoy watching?

I’m a huge fan of Trish Status, Lita, Mickie James, Gail Kim, Molly Holly, and Madusa.

6. What women’s promotion would you say is the best around?

I support all women’s promotions no matter how small, but in my opinion, the best one is Shimmer.

7. Where in the world would you love to go wrestle?

Anywhere in South America or Europe.

8. Who have you enjoyed working in the ring with so far?

Dementia D’Rose. She’s very creative and we’ve put on some great matches.

9. Who would you love to work with in the future?

I can’t wait to have a match against Mia Yim.

10. Are you at all familiar with the UK wrestling scene?

I am not familiar with it at all, I will be looking into now though.

Thank you to Aja for her time with this interview and I hope she enjoys finding out about the UK scene.
