"Hardcore" Heather Owens' Profile...

  • How It Started: I attended a WWE show back in 1997 and was hooked! As soon as I graduated high school in 2002, I went to wrestling school in Cincinnati and was there for a few months. I left because of some personal reasons and returned back to train in 2005. I started out as a referee and worked my way up to be a wrestler. I still do some reffing though, as well as managing.
  • Gimmick: I am not a diva. I have fun with my opponent and crowd. I like to keep it old school while incorporating moves that the girls usually don't use.
  • Wrestling Style: I like to keep it old school and I'm not afraid to brawl or break rules.
  • Gear: I wear a one piece black bathing suit with "Anti-Diva" on the back, blue or silver stockings, and black and blue boots.
  • Titles Held: None at this time.
  • Biggest Win: At HWA's CyberClash 2.0 when I faced Nevaeh in a "Leather, Whips and Chains Match". It was a very bloody match for me but I came out on top.
  • Worst Loss: Against Mickie Knuckles in Indiana. It was a one-on-one match up and it was very hard hitting...but after getting a kick to the face, I was out and Mickie got the win.
  • Favorite Type of Match: I like singles the best but also enjoy the intergender match-ups. You can do a lot with boys that you can't do with girls. Gimmick matches are the best. I think you can have the most fun with those.
  • Favorite Moves/Holds: Side Russian; DDT; Tornado DDT; Tarantula; Ass Smash on the ropes; Flair Flip.
  • Finisher: TKO.
  • Biggest Allies: Mary Elizabeth Monroe; Hailey Hatred.
  • Most-Hated Enemies: Nevaeh; Ashley Lane.
  • Toughest Opponent(s): Mickie Knuckles; Nevaeh.
  • Career Highlight: HWA's Best Female of 2006; Reffing on the 2008 Pillman Show; Winning the "Leather, Whips and Chains Match" at HWA's CyberClash 2.0.
  • Favorite Wrestlers: Ric Flair; Moolah; Dean Malenko; Owen Hart.
  • Wrestling Ambition: I just want to continue having fun. I left for a while because of an incredible amount of indy wrestling drama. If I had the chance to work for WWE I would like only to be a ref. I am happy with where I am now. I love wrestling but I love my husband and family more.
