Growing up "slightly tomboyish" and a fan of wrestling dating to when she was 7-years-old, Angelina Love, whose real name is Lauren Williams, enrolled in a wrestling school in Canada at age 18, and "after three weeks of training, wanted to just quit." Frustrated that she wasn't getting it, Love actually quit wrestling for a few weeks before giving it another shot.
"I just loved wrestling so much that after a few weeks, I was just, I need to get back in the ring and see if i can figure this out," Love said. "Once I got back into the ring and started training, doing arm drags and realizing how to do this properly and do that properly, once you're finally able to do things properly, you start to feel better about yourself and your learning abilities. So it got better from there."
Though she does not regret becoming a wrestler, it has been a grueling life.
"I've had more injuries than I'd wanted to ever get," Love said. "And travel – "if you like to travel, it's good. Some people get sick of it real quick. I still like it," said Love. "For a lot of people, being away from home is tough. For me, I pretty much just say with my condo that I pay my cats' rent, because they live here more than I do."
In response to people who dislike women's wrestling, she says, "Some people hate women's wrestling, some people love it. It's their opinion. I always go out there and do my best to give people reasons to love it."
- Daizee Haze made her first appearance at a wrestling event in over a year last Saturday at a Dynamo Pro Wrestling event in Glen Carbon, Illinois, as she accompanied MsChif to the ring for her match against Sean Vincent.
CHIKARA announced last year that Haze would be taking an indefinite hiatus from professional wrestling to focus on her "health and recovery." The promotion, however, publicly attributed Haze's leave of absence to a storyline rather than a legitimate private matter. The indy standout's health drew great concern as she appeared emaciated in her last appearances.
