March 28, 2004 (11:53am): Patch: Hello, Special K, Krissy Vaine. Welcome to the Squared Circle Newsletter, & to Patch's Place. Thanks for taking time to chat with me.
Krissy: No, problem. Its' my pleasure.
Patch: Ok, let's start off with the basics: Height, home town, & activities away from the ring.
Krissy: ht- 5'8
hometown- Greensboro, NC
activities outside of wrestling- To be perfectly honest, I don't have much time outside of wrestling. Between training in the gym, training in the ring and doing shows I don't have hardly any time. I do model some and I've been dabbling in acting a little, but they all tie into wrestling in some way.
Patch: Can you tell our readers how you got your start in wrestling?
Krissy: Actually, I just went to a live show and caught the wrestling bug. I did my research, found schools and that's how it all happened. It was definitely a gradual process. I have actually been in the business for 3 years. I valeted/managed for two years prior to actually wrestling. I have only been wrestling for the last year.
Patch: How long have you been in wrestling?
Krissy: 3 years total
Patch: When did you work your first show, and with whom did you work it?
Krissy: As a valet for Slick Ric Converse at a show here in NC for Ken Spence. I wrestled my first singles match against Amber Holly at the Carolina Wrestling Federation in Burlington NC.
Patch: Do you work as heel or baby, & which do you prefer?
Krissy: Mainly heel, but I do both. I think I prefer heel but I like to mix it up. I get bored doing one or the other all the time.
Patch: What is the best crowd response that you've ever gotten? Positive or negative.
Krissy: Gosh, I don't know. I'm a pretty obnoxious heel. I've had silly string sprayed at me. I've had women in wheel chairs flip me off with both arms. I'm constantly getting told " I paid alot of money to look as good as I do" which I take as a compliment because I've never had any surgery of any type to alter my looks.
Patch: Have you ever worked tags? If so, how is working a tag match different than a singles match?
Krissy: Yes, I like them. I think it's much easier than a singles match. I don't get worried about blowing anything if there's someone out there who can cover me if that were to happen. I especially like mixed tags.
Patch: What promotions have you worked for?
Krissy: Basically everyone in NC, with the regulars being CWF- Mid- Atlantic, ACW, EWA. I also work for Ring of Honor, NWA- Wildside, NWL/ House of Pain, WEW, NWA-Bluegrass. There are more I just can't think of all of them right now.
Patch: Have you ever held any titles?
Krissy: No, I don't haven't stayed in one place long enough to so.
Patch: Are you feuding with anyone now? If so, who is it & how did it start?
Krissy: Jenny Taylor. It started at the CWF when she was just a backstage interviewer and she decided she wanted to be like me and mimmick my every move.
Patch: What do you think of the politics in wrestling today?
Krissy: I definitely think it's all about politics. Who you know makes all the difference, but that's life. Not just wrestling. That's just the way it works. It's sad but true.
Patch: Who are your favorite wrestlers?
Krissy: I really respect and admire everyone who truly loves this business and gives it all that they have. As far as the women go my favorites are Ivory, Molly Holly and Trish. I also have to give admiration to Lita who came back with a bang after such a severe injury. Most people would have given up but she didn't. That's a true love for the business.
Patch: If you could wrestle anyone in the WWE, who would it be and why?
Krissy: Probably Ivory because I have been watching her since I was little. Tina Ferrari was my favorite back in the day.
Patch: What has been your toughest challenge?
Krissy: Earning the respect of the locker room. It's very important to me that people take me seriously and know that I love this business and I take it very seriously. At first glance I get stereotyped because of the way that I look. It's always "Well, she looks good so she probably can't wrestle". But I do my best to prove people wrong on that one. And I think if you asked people who are close to me they would tell you that I'm a very hard worker.
Patch: Krissy, we give the stars we interview a chance to say anything they want about the wrestling business. This is your time. Shoot...
Krissy: I have nothing but positive things to say about this business. Wrestling has allowed me to travel all over the place, meet really interesting people, do what I love to do, make a little money and make some really good friends along the way. The way I see it things can only get better from here.
Patch: Where can fans find you on the web?
Patch: Any final comments?
Krissy: Thank you for having me!!!
Patch: Special K, Krissy Vaine, thank you for your time, & the best of luck in your career.
