While her role in the film is a limited supporting one, it is central to the film. As Peacock says, "Her role is very memorable. What she does makes such an enormous impact. At all the test screenings, her scenes got a tremendous reaction from the audience."
Considering the movie was filmed in Atlanta, producers contacted people previously associated with World Championship Wrestling to find female wrestlers to play the character. They got in contact with a wrestling promoter, who referred some female wrestlers they may be interested in, including Love. "When we first saw Angel's photos we thought she was great. Then when we met her and found out what a professional she is, we were thrilled," producer Richard Sampson said.
By chance, she was the first person to audition for the role and producers immediately cast her in the film as they were won over by her natural charisma. "We met her and we felt 'this is it,'" Peacock adds.
