How many wrestlers can say that they were introduced to professional wrestling through a course taken during their college career? Well, we know of at least one: Morgan Rockafeller! Although she was a wrestling fan in high school, Rockafeller's university classroom encounter with a trainer/booker convinced her to dive into the world of pro wrestling...and she hasn't looked back since. Morgan is currently making a name for herself in the rings of western Pennsylvania. But don't be surprised if you soon see the Rockafeller name springing up in rings across the country.

Morgan Rockafeller's Profile...
- How It Started: At Penn State, they had a class called "The History of Professional Wrestling". Since I found a love for professional wrestling while I was in high school, I decided to attend the class. For one lecture, Kasanova Kato came in and spoke about being a booker and a trainer on shows and he invited anyone interested to come and try out at Keystone Championship Wrestling's school. After a few months of trying to dig up the courage, I finally went and tried-out...and that's when my training started! It's been one of the best experiences I've ever had in my life.
- Gimmick: Early in my career, I was a rich, snooty diva. But recently I've taken on an edgier, ready-for-a-fight style.
- Wrestling Style: Some high-flying with some hard brawling strikes mixed in.
- Gear: Jean cutoff shorts and a tank top with fishnets. That is, unless, I'm feeling a little hippie-ish...then I break out my tie dye and face paint!
- Biggest Win: Over Stacy Hunter and Dash Bennett in a mixed tag match at PWX. It was only my second match ever, and Chris and I pulled an effort out that allowed us to pick up the win, although outweighed and out powered.
- Worst Loss: My first match ever, I got laid out when Scottie Gash gave me his Spotlight Drop during a mixed tag match.
- Favorite Type of Match: No preference. I'm ready for any type of match thrown my way.
- Favorite Moves/Holds: Hurricanrana; flying head scissors; marital arts kicks.
- Finisher: "M-Plant": Kickstart DDT. Or the "Old School Expulsion": Reverse facing Twist Of Fate.
- Biggest Allies: Chris LeRusso; The West Coast Hustlas; Jimi the Hi-Flying Hippie.
- Most-Hated Enemies: Krystal Frost; Stacy Hunter; Roxy; Bobby Shields; Scottie Gash; Dash Bennet.
- Toughest Opponent(s): Stacy Hunter, who doubles me in weight.
- Career Highlight: At the Devil Bhudakahn Memorial Show, I got to get in the ring and whip off two of my favorite moves
--the flying head scissors and the hurricanrana --to help out Chris LeRusso. The show was for a great cause and I was proud to be a part of it and work on it.
- Favorite Wrestlers: Lita, Mickie James, Beth Phoenix, Daizee Haze, ODB, Edge and Christian Cage. Each person is an individual who you can't take your eyes off of when they are in the ring.
- Wrestling Ambition: I would love to break into TNA or WWE, but for now, until I'm finished with school, I'm content working around the indy federations.
