Heather PateraKayfabeKickout.com recently interviewed Heather Patera, former WLW ladies champion and daughter of WWE star Ken Patera!

Here are some highlights.

Heather comments on whether it’s vital for female pro wrestlers to have a certain look, to be more important than having raw wrestling talent.

“I think WWE has forced people to think women should look a certain way. Like a “Diva.” Some of the best talent I’ve seen isn’t “Diva” quality. Tattoos, piercings, a few extra pounds, Mohawks you name it. These women are themselves when they walk out that curtain, gives the fans something different than a 115lb cookie cutter half wrestler, shoot I’m sitting at 160lbs 5’4 definitely not your typical TV female wrestler. These are women who mix their lifestyle with amazing talent. I LOVE SHIMMER for that. Its not cookie cutter. Its based on talent not looks.”

Former ECW and WCW start Scotty Riggs comments on John Cena, and more

Scotty RiggsThe Undisputed Wrestling Show (www.facebook.com/theundisputedwrestlingshow) with hosts “The Prophet” Rick Craig, “Beer Me” Zane Pasley, and “The Morning Star” William Huckaby recently had the pleasure of talking with “The World’s Most Dangerous Man with an Eyepatch” Scotty Riggs!  Scotty Riggs is a former WCW World Tag Team and had a great run in the original Extreme Championship Wrestling.

Scotty Riggs on John Cena:  “Every single match is the same, and it is sickening. Five simple moves every match.  When it is time for Cena’s comeback it is the same moves, boom, boom, boom.  That does not suspend any disbelief.  That is what wrestlers are supposed to do, have the craft to anywhere in the match a finish can come up.”  “Cena  has mixed himself with the Super Cena thing, which is what Vince McMahon has a hard on for, he is a good guy that is so good that it is sickening.  That is why so many people don’t like him.”  “Cena is WWE’s cash cow.  When I am watching Cena I feel like I am watching a TV commercial. Everything he is doing, he is selling cereal, he is selling tee shirts, he is selling something in everything he does.”

TNA’s Davey Richards talks about wrestling around the world, and much more

Davey RBy Brian Fritz for the Orlando Sentinel:

Even when you are considered one of the best performers in your business, that doesn’t mean things will go smoothly.  That is especially the case when it comes to the pro wrestling business.

Case is point: Davey Richards (Wesley Richards) who is thought of by many as one of the best wrestlers in the business right now along with his tag-team partner Eddie Edwards.  The two made a name for themselves at Ring of Honor as the American Wolves, having an incredible string of great matches over most of the last six years.

Even when they weren’t paired together, they still excelled with both of them winning the singles world championship in ROH, a promotion that is known for its excellent matches that sets the bar very high in front of a very critical audience.

Seth Rollins recently spoke with RedEyeChicago.com to promote tonight’s RAW. Here are some highlights:

Many have said you have the talent to become an individual star in the WWE. In five years, where do you see yourself?

Five years? I see myself as world champion. If you were in my position and you aren’t saying that, something is wrong with you. I want to be holding a title, beating up John Cena and Randy Orton and headlining pay-per-views. I have the confidence and drive and those goals would be satisfying.

What are your thoughts on the new WWE network?

For me, first and foremost I am a fan. I logged in a few days ago and it’s amazing, you can’t put it any way else. I am scrolling through the old PPVs [pay-per-views], looking at the Eddie Guerrero matches from Judgment Day and I did everything on my phone. It’s a revolutionary step going forward and will change the way the business model is formed in the next century. This is the next big step and this is something that will continue to grow each and every day.

With all the old NXT shows there will be plenty of my matches I can go back and watch as well, to relive those “rookie” days. I think in the near future you could see a section of just Seth Rollins.

You were the second wrestler in the ring at the Royal Rumble and almost won. Now that you have gained exposure as a singles competitor, what could be in the future for Wrestlemania for you?

The Rumble was amazing. To be in the match that long and being part of that list that not many appear on is very humbling and satisfying. I would have liked to gotten the W, but I did my best. I think I made a big impact and was very proud of my performance.

Heading into Wrestlemania, it’s the most exciting time of the year. Right now I don’t know the plans yet for The Shield or myself but I know there will be an impact made. With so many things going on right now leading up to the big show at New Orleans there’s that little extra self-push that wants you to put on the very best match each and every night.
