Interview with Faye Jackson

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
