Josh Modaberi of SportsVibe.co.uk recently conducted an interview with TNA Knockout Tara. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Debuting at WrestleMania: "Oh my goodness! I was so new. I think people could tell I was trying to act cool like I belonged there, but it's always terrifying to be part of such a big event and I didn't realize how big it was until I actually got there. I didn't have the wrestling background, I never wanted to be a wrestler, I got into it as an accident. I got lucky being in the right place at the right time, but making my debut at WrestleMania was nerve wracking, I was completely just taken back by the whole experience. Every WrestleMania is different, it's our SuperBowl but it was amazing to make my debut for the WWF on the grandest stage."
Major differences between TNA and WWE: "The first thing that I realized straight away was that the 'Knockouts' were such a main part of the show. When I first arrived we were doing four segments with the girls on one episode. It was nice because we got to showcase not just being boobs and butt, we got to go out there and showcase our talent, what we train to do is wrestle, kick-butt and not just having five minute matches. We were having 12 minute matches, cage matches, the full works. It was amazing and the girls were all shapes and sizes we had the likes of Awesome Kong and ODB and it was just exciting to be a part of."
Comparing Vince McMahon to Dixie Carter: "I rarely got to talk to Vince McMahon, I would always say hello if I walked passed him in the corridor but he was always really busy, and I can imagine he has a lot going on in his life. On the other hand Dixie is always around backstage, we can approach her and she has a lot of meetings with us girls and tells us what an important role we have on the show, so that's nice. I respect Vince, he created a palace and I have learned a lot from both Vince and Dixie."
