Wrestling Diva Katarina Waters (formerly Katie Lea Burchill and Winter) was recently interviewed by Robert Krupar of Artofwrestling.cz. Here are some highlights of what she said about:
Her Biggest Influence in Wrestling: Kevin Nash, a.k.a. Big Daddy Cool Diesel, because I was obsessed with him…
If She Would Return to WWE or TNA: Perhaps if it was the right opportunity. I enjoyed myself in both places. I just don’t know if I would want to be quite so restricted again as I would be in WWE.
Her Time at OVW: OVW was some of the best times for me artistically I think. Al Snow is a fantastic trainer and he and Danny Davis who ran the OVW TV show were always open to ideas and stories we came up with, so we had the best opportunity to build characters and learn how to put feuds together.
Her Storyline with Paul Burchill: Well, the "strange relationship" part never really happened so, instead we started having these inter-gender handicap matches which was really fun. We got do put together some really different matches and had a nice little gimmick that set us apart, which was great.
Her Character Winter in TNA: I loved playing that character. She was evil, mysterious… what’s not to like..?
Female Wrestlers Treated Differently Than Men: Obviously they get less coverage and airtime than the men, but I think that is also due to the nature of the business and the demands of the audience. I don’t think that a show that was 50% women’s matches would do as well in a mainstream capacity. So there are less women‘ s matches which is fine, but sometimes people equate that with less important, which is a mistake.
