August 15, 2004 (9:48am): Patch: Hello, Eve. Welcome to the Squared Circle Newsletter, & to Patch's Place. Thanks for taking time to chat with me.
Eve: Always a pleasure
Patch: Ok, let's start off with the basics: Height, home town, who you were trained by, & activities away from the ring.
Eve: Wow thats a lot. 5 feet, 3 and a half inches. (the extra half inch is important) I'm from Boston, trained by the legendary Killer Kowalski in Malden MA...also by Tim McNeany, Steve Bradley, SWB, Mike Hollow & Jim McCarthy
Patch: How long have you been in wrestling?
Eve: a little over 2 years
Patch: When did you work your first show, and with whom did you work it?
Eve: as far as managing, a worker by the name of Freight Train Dan held a benefit show for seeing eye dogs and that was my first time working. It no pay (obviously) but we got great food and i thought it was the coolest thing in the world! That's also where I met Tim McNeany (who i would go on to manage quite a lot)
My wrestling debut was at Salisbury beach against Nikki Roxx. I was terrified but for a first match it wasn't too bad, all i had to do was get squashed!
Patch: Do you work primarily heel or baby, and which do you prefer?
Eve: for the most part it's been heel, since Tim is a pro in that department. (its amazing how much people can hate a schoolgirl!) But more recently i've been wrestling as a babyface. both are a lot of fun. i think i like being a heel manager and a babyface wrestler...of course you can't have both!
Patch: How did you come up with the "Catholic School Girl Gone Bad" gimmick?
Eve: It wasn't too hard. i was in Catholic school from 1st to 12th grade. i was always exceptionally good so this was the naughty part of me that doesnt show very often. The "Eve" part of it I came up with because my favorite TV show is "Xena: Warrior Princess" and toward the end of the show, Xena had a daughter named Eve. Also, as far as the Bible and Catholicism, Eve was the original bad girl, she got us thrown out of paradise by eating that apple!
Patch: What is the best crowd response that you've ever gotten? Positive or negative.
Eve: Haha. Probably working as a heel, managing Tim. These little kids were taking ice out of their sodas and throwing it at me. And then this little kid who must've been about 8 or 9 called me a word that I don't even use! I remember thinking "I must be doing SOMETHING right!"
Patch: What promotions have you worked for in the past, & which ones are you currently working for?
Eve: WWA, WFA, UCW, NWA NE, Killer Kowalski's All Stars mainly. i work wherever & whenever I'm booked!
Patch: Are you currently involved in any feuds? If so, whom with & how did it start?
Eve: Eve doesn't feud for long, she takes care of business immediately, either that or gets knocked out before she can do anything about it...why take it out on the schoolgirl, guys? why so angry? (lol)
Patch: What can fans expect to see from you when they see you for the first time?
Eve: A petite blonde who looks like she belongs in a junior high ballet class! But appearances are indeed decieving. Don't let the pigtails and knee socks fool you, Eve is a spitfire, heel or face
Patch: Who are your favorite wrestlers?
Eve: my all time favorites are Triple H and HBK. And the guys I work with/have worked with are really cool. Aaron Stevens is great, and The Graduate is of course very cool! Walter Kowalski is a legend, And never forget that Ric Flair is a 16 time (wooooooo) world champ!
Patch: If you could wrestle anyone from the WWE, who would it be & why?
Eve: hmmmm...that's a tough one. As far as ladies, perhaps Molly or Victoria. Gentlemen, The Game of course! or Shawn, or Mysterio...anyone who would teach me! (it'd be an absolute honor to work with any of them)
Patch: What has been your toughest challenge?
Eve: Coming back from three stomach surgeries during my two years training. I lost all the muscle I'd worked on building and basically had to teach myself to eat again. Losing time from the ring and the gym was also emotionally draining. It was starting from scratch each time. my last surgery was in February (two days before Valentines day, ech!) and I'd been sick since Thanksgiving so I was at a really unhealthy weight and extremely dehydrated...i still trained though. I just sucked on honey packets as thats all that would stay down!
Patch: Eve, we give the stars we interview a chance to say anything they want about the wrestling business. This is your time. Shoot...
Eve: first off, i dont consider myself a star ;) i belong to wrestling and i'm at its beck and call! this business is extremely difficult but if you love it, DO IT. I've never had a more amazing experience. it's worth every sacrifice 10 times over. I love it! if u want a more in-depth look, check out my testimonial of sorts on my website
Patch: Where can fans find you on the web?
Eve: www.evegonebad.com or www.glorywrestling.com i honestly don't know where else!
Patch: Eve Robinson, thank you for your time, & the best of luck in your career.
Eve: No no, thank YOU. =D oh yeah, and GO PATRIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!
