The UK has been blessed with so many young talented Wrestlers and they are starting to get noticed all around the world. One talented young lady that has been making a massive impression on everyone that sees her perform is Lizzy Styles. We got the chance to find out more about one of the UK’s hottest young prospects.
UWR: Where are you from ?
UWR: How old are you ?
Lizzy: I am 18 years old.
UWR: Growing up were you a fan of Pro Wrestling ?
Lizzy: I remember being about 4 years old and was madly in love with pro wrestling and I’ve loved and been interested in it since then.
UWR: Where did you train to become a Wrestler, who trained you and how old were you ?
Lizzy: I first started out in a place in Runcorn, I wont get into much detail about that place but after a while of being there I moved training schools for personal and business reasons and joined a place called Infinite Promotions based in St. Helens, I was trained by Gypsy John Kenny, Cj Banks, Danny Hope and various other trainers there. Its been my best training place so far.
UWR: Who were some of your influences growing up ?
Lizzy: When I was a lot younger and into wrestling at a young age I absolutely loved Maria Kanellis, she was my ultimate favourite diva, I wanted to be like her. And my male influence was Randy Orton, he was the only reason I really watched any wrestling growing up.
UWR: Are your family and friends supportive of your Pro Wrestling Career ?
Lizzy: My family love the fact I do what I love, I have the most supportive family I could imagine and all my friends are always asking how my wrestling is getting on. I would most definitely say I have supportive family and friends.
UWR: I’m sure like every Wrestler you remember your first match. So who was in the match ? Did it go well ? And what do you remember most about it ?
Lizzy: Yes of course I remember it! It was dreadful! Haha. I remember wrestling a girl called Tigerlillies and she was a lot more experienced than me but I remember how bad it was, I was absolutely nervous and didn’t even have proper wrestling gear! I was wearing a MTV top, and a pair of denim shorts! That’s the only thing that stands out to me from my first match ever, I absolutely cringe watching it back! It was for Runcorn Wrestling Academy.
UWR:For people that have never seen You perform can you describe your character and wrestling style ?
Lizzy: My character is literally just being myself, I would most definitely call myself a bubbly, happy and fun person, I take everything to the ring with me, I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not. I don’t have a certain wrestling style, I give the crowd what they want, and listen to what they want. I wouldn’t say I was a ‘indy’ type of wrestler though.
UWR:In your opinion what is the best match you have ever seen ?
Lizzy: The best match I have ever seen involved Owen Hart, he was absolutely amazing and could do everything. I loved watching any of his matches no matter who he worked, so I would probably say a Owen Hart match.
UWR: What in your opinion is your best match or opponent you have ever had ?
Lizzy: My favourite match to date was against Saraya Knight, that was my toughest fight and toughest opponent but I loved every second of spending the ring with her. Incredible and I learned so much just listening to her.
UWR: What is your proudest moment from your time in Pro Wrestling ?
Lizzy: When I joined wrestling I told myself that when I was 18 I would LOVE to wrestle in Japan, it was always a dream from day one. I was 17 years old and was flown out to wrestle in Japan. I would say this was my proudest moment in my wrestling career so far. I love being able to say I was the youngest wrestler to wrestle for that company and the first British girl they used.
UWR: Are there any wrestlers on the Indy scene you would like to wrestle that you have never wrestled before ?
Lizzy: I’ve never told anyone but I’d love to work Jinny. Most matches I’ve watched Of Jinny’s has been so good. She’s a lovely girl too!! Also Candice LeRae. She’s the only other one!
UWR: If you could choose any wrestler in history to have a match with who would it be?
Lizzy: Erm! I don’t know that’s a hard question! I would say Maria Kanellis because she was always my favourite growing up! I would love to bring Owen Hart back for a match too! Haha
UWR: Are there any companies that you would like to work for in the future?
Lizzy: I don’t really have a set promotion I want to work for. Of course my ultimate goal is to one day do this full time as a job and work for WWE. Until then I’m just gonna keep doing what I need to do to achieve what I want!
UWR: What advice would you give to anyone starting out in Wrestling ?
Lizzy: I would definitely say, train a lot and don’t grow a massive ego. There’s a lot of people that start training have one match and think they’re amazing and I think that makes people think less of you that has been working a lot longer, if that makes sense!
UWR: Where can people see you perform next ?
Lizzy: I wrestle a lot for Megaslam wrestling so you can catch me at any of those events that I announce. Or follow my social media accounts and keep up to date!
