Recently Brian H. Waters spoke with one of wrestling’s hottest African-American female superstars, Faye Jackson. She spoke about her wrestling modeling career.
Who is Faye Jackson
BW: When did you decide you wanted to become a professional wrestler?
FJ: I decided to become a pro wrestler after get laid off a job I absolutely hated. I was there for 3 years and like any job I was treated like utter crap. It got to the point where I would wake up and cry every morning while commuting to NYC. One day it clicked that I didn’t want to work, I wanted to wrestle. So I started looking up schools and it went from there.
BW: Who are some of your influences in the ring?
FJ: The whole reason I believe I could wrestle was because I saw Jacqueline on my tv every week. It was nice seeing a black woman kick mens’ butts with WCW. Later on I love watching Tommy Dreamer, RVD, Eddie Guerrero, NWO Wolfpac (all of them) lol
BW: Who would you say is your best dance partner?
FJ: I dance alone lol. I’m weird like that.
BW: Who are some wrestlers that you would like to wrestle?
FJ: Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, Joey Ryan, Cody Rhodes, Matt Taven – if you catch my drift
BW: You are originally from Ohio, but now reside from the tri-state area, have you had a chance to wrestle at home yet?
FJ: No not yet. I’m still looking for the opportunity to wrestle in front of my home crowd.
BW: How long have you been modeling?
FJ: I started modeling while training at the ROH (Ring of Honor) Dojo so it’s been a little over a year.
BW: How has modeling helped you with your wrestling career?
FJ: Because men are creeps lol. It’s help build my confidence inside and outside the ring. In a world where the girls are a size 2, blond, and perky, I have to show that I’m confident in myself and I look just as good as them if not better.
BW: What would you say is tougher, wrestling or modeling?
FJ: Wrestling 100%. The fans are not afraid to speak their mind on if they like you are not. Plus the training, constantly learning and studying. Wrestling is a full time job.
BW: Describe Faye Jackson’s WrestleMania moment
FJ: Sold out crowd at Ford Field (Detroit), I’m the challenger for the women’s title and Beyonce performs Formation and walks me to the ring.
BW: Anything you would like to say to the fans?
FJ: Thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for believing in this crazy plus size vixen who probably shouldn’t be in the ring lol. God willing 2017 will be a big year me and I’m always on IG: fayejackson419
