February 6, 2004 (11:03am): Patch: Sandra D, hi and welcome to the Squared Circle News and to Patch's Place. Thank you for granting me this time to talk with you, it is nice to meet you.
Sandra D: Nice to meet me? You better believe it!
Patch: Will you tell me and our readers a bit about yourself, such as height, hometown, years in wrestling, and hobbies away from the ring?
Sandra D: I am about 5'3 and weigh about 112 lbs. From Chicago, IL. I've been in the business about 5 1/2 years now. I started out as a ring gem, then moved on to be a manager/valet. And now, a wrestler. My hobbies away from the ring? Well, I spend a lot of time with my beautiful daughter, Brianna. She is my life, my heart, and my best friend. And I also like spending time with the other love of my life, my husband, Terry. I also enjoy working out.
Patch: Who were you trained by for your career in wrestling?
Sandra D: Well, a lot of the guys from Windy City Wrestling helped me out in my career such as Terry Allen, Steve BOZ, and many others. I had my first match at Battle of the Belts 15 which the owner of WCPW, Sam DeCero trained us himself.
Patch: Sandra, when and where did you work your first wrestling show, and was going through your mind at that moment?
Sandra D: Geez whatta momant that was! About 5 1/2 years ago, 8 hours away in Missouri. I traveled with about seven different people i didn't even know. I only knew one guy, Mitch Blake. The other workers were Ice Vic Capri, Jayson Reign, Cheeks Manson, and Jeffro. I was very nervous, yet excited because I was finally going to be a part of the business.
Patch: What made you want to get into pro wrestling? Were you a fan growing up?
Sandra D: I grew up watching WWE. I was only a little girl in pigtails, and from the time I started watching, I knew that's what I wanted to do. I was so into Miss Elizabeth and the Savage gimmick. I used to want to be just like her!
Patch: I know that you are a manager/valet. Who are you currently managing at this time?
Sandra D: At this time, I am not managing. Just up until Battle of the Belts I was managing Vito Two Fingers Fontaine for a few years, but I decided to move on to bigger and better things such as myself, and concentrate on my own wrestling.
Patch: Would you ever interject yourself into a match to ensure that your guy got a win?
Sandra D: Listen up, sweetheart, when you have Sandra D in your corner, she only wants a win, so she will do whatever it takes to make sure we win the match!
Patch: Whoa, hold on, I am just doing my job!!
Sandra D: NOW YOU KNOW BETTER!
Patch: What promotions do you work for?
Sandra D: Well, currently WCPW. I worked a couple shows as a manager for the promoter Jay Rep.
Patch: Who are your favorite wrestlers?
Sandra D: Well, when I was little, Hogan, Savage, Brutus Beefcake; as of now.......Goldberg and Shawn Michaels, I guess.
Patch: Is it easier for you to work as a baby or a heel?
Sandra D: Ha Ha Ha! That's easy, even though I like being a baby, I've been told I'm better as a heel. I don't understand why. Do you?
Patch: Sandra, do you feel that because you are a woman, promoters look at you differently than they do the guys?
Sandra D: Some promoters look at you as eye candy, and of course beautiful women will get more attention. But where I come from, in the ring you're just another one of the guys and you better be ready to bust your a@@, excuse my French!
Patch: Sandra, we give the stars that we talk with a chance to say whatever they want about the wrestling business, be it good or bad. Shoot...
Sandra D: I love it, but it can be good or bad for some. There can be lots of backstabbing drama, which I try to stay away from, and of course some of the ring rats, man, it seems like some of the women are just there to, well, be rats!
Patch: Where can fans find you on the web?
Sandra: Until I get my web site up, www.windycityprowrestling.com. (under profiles)
Patch: Any final comments?
Sandra D: Yes, it's been a pleasure.
Patch: Sandra D, thanks again for taking the time to do this interview. I do wish you the best in your career.
