Sojo Bolt's Profile...
- How It Started: I started watching wrestling in 2001 after watching Lita jumping off the top rope into the Litacurrana. A year later at the height of Tough Enough, I decided I was indeed tough enough to give it a try. While I was researching schools, a friend of mine passed my phone number to Eddie Sharkey. He was actively searching for females to train. He called me and left a message about a show he was having that evening. I checked it out and had such a good time, I pretty much signed up on the spot.
- Gimmick: I don't need one.
- Wrestling Style: Old school for sure. I have no problem with technical wrestling and I love to brawl.
- Gear: I wear mostly gold, bright colors and animal prints.
- Titles Held: OVW Women's Champion(x4); MIW Women's Champion; CTCWA Women's Champion; WLW Women's Champion; XBW Women's Champion; 3XW Women's Champion.
- Biggest Win: Defeating Katie Lea Burchill to win the OVW Women's Championship.
- Worst Loss: I don't know...every loss is the worst.
- Favorite Type of Match: Singles matches.
- Favorite Moves/Holds: I like to use various suplexes and neckbreakers. I also love to use chops.
- Finisher: I use a spinning spinebuster called the "Pop/Lock/n Drop", and I do a slingshot into a single-leg boston crab called "The Dreadlock".
- Biggest Allies: At this moment...none!
- Most-Hated Enemies: Haters...they're everywhere!
- Toughest Opponent(s): Hands down, Ms. Natural. She's such a great heel and tough competitor. Every time we stepped into the ring together I grew as a wrestler.
- Career Highlight: Becoming a TNA Knockout would top the list, but the journey to get there has a lot of memorable moments.
- Favorite Wrestlers: Right now my favorites are Edge and Chris Jericho...both are great in the ring and fab on the mic. Molly Holly, Victoria and Jazz are my favorite female wrestlers.
- Wrestling Ambition: I plan to wrestle for as long as people continue to want to watch. My ambition is to be the best wrestler I can be.
