The Blossom Twins discuss British Boot Camp:
UK female wrestlers The Blossom Twins discussed taking part in UK reality show TNA British Boot Camp, during a recent interview with TNAInsider.com website.
“It has been beyond incredible; honestly, it’s been an amazing experience for us,” they said.
“We have had so many pinch yourself moments and are just making sure to take everything in and have fun!”
Thoughts on the Knockouts Division:
“We think TNA have one of the best women’s divisions a company can offer. We would love to step in the ring with each one of those girls and feel we could learn so much from them! Mickie James would be an honour to wrestle again and Gail Kim and Madison Rayne are dream opponents for us, having established themselves as a tag team!”
On filming segments for TNA British Boot Camp in the Impact Zone in Orlando, FL:
“It was as nerve wrecking as it sounds, Hulk Hogan, Dixie Carter, Eric Bischoff were watching…us!! We were 9 or 10 when we first got a glimpse of Hulk Hogan so to be given the chance to wrestle in front of him and get his feedback was unbelievable and such an honour. However, when it came to going out there and performing, you have to put it to the back of your mind and let the nerves go and just do the best you can do and give it 110% and that’s what we feel like we did! It was so much fun!”
Their biggest influences in and out of the wrestling ring:
“In wrestling Jeff Hardy has been one of our biggest influences, he was the reason we loved wrestling and got into it as much as we did and to this day we continue and aspire to stay true to what we believe in and who we are the same way he has done!
“Outside of the ring our Mum and Dad continue to amaze us with their support and love! Our family and friends are everything to us and they each have different impacts on our lives and keep us smiling, happy, focused and blessed every day!”
“Well, I’m having fun as the X Division champion right now. I do find myself wrestling a lot of the younger, newer guys; guys that I haven’t been wrestling all over the world for many years, says RVD.
“I do notice a big difference in the chemistry, but I accept my position. These guys modeled themselves after me and watched me stand out, and they wanted to stand out that way; that’s what the X Division is about. Once I had someone else explain that to me besides me just assuming that’s what it was, I really felt more obligated to take control.”
Wrestling at TNA live events in smaller venues:
“You said it right there when you said ‘intimacy’; that connection that we have with the fans is irreplaceable. Back in the ECW days, the fans were part of the show, they were a big part of the show, and it was our connection, and relating to them and them relating to us, that made the whole show.”
His ideal opponent for his retirement match:
“I haven’t given this question any thought, but my initial reaction when you asked me was Sabu. I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather wrestle than Sabu, and if I was in that predicament where it was my last match, Sabu would probably same the same thing.”
