OSWtv Meets… Kasey Owens

When did you start watching wrestling and was there a moment that got you hooked?

I watched wrestling from a very young age and played with my big brother’s wrestling figures, particularly British Bulldog always sticks in my mind. The main moment that made me sit up and take note was when Lita made her debut with Essa Rios vs Gillberg and she hit the moonsault. That’s when I got hooked. I thought, wow this girl can do amazing stuff I want to be just like her.

From then on I rarely missed a show, except when I wasn’t allowed to stay up late to watch the PPV so had to record it.

What made you decide to start training to be a wrestler and where did you start?

A friend of mine said to me that they had started training for a local company where I lived (BCW – Bangor Championship Wrestling). It was very much trying its best to be seen as professional but we hadn’t the luxury of actual trainers who had experience. It was about a year later when Alan Cunningham opened his school, MEGA – Modern Extreme Grappling Arts. A couple of us decided to join and the rest is history. Three months later I had my debut for Wrestling.ie in a tag match, I tagged with my trainer Alan, aka Bonesaw vs Jordan Devlin and Rachelle St Claire.

Who are your biggest influences in professional wrestling?

So many to name;

Fergal Devitt
Jeff Hardy
Saraya Knight
Lita
Becky Knox/Lynch
Gail Kim
Manami Toyota

Do you have any favourite matches or opponents that you have worked with?

I love working with Kay Lee Ray, we just seem to click. Whether she’s heel or I am it just seems to work. My favourite match was vs Kay Lee at Fierce Females’ last show.

Working with Saraya was also a huge milestone for me – I’ve trained with her in the past and always wanted to work with her.

I have a match with Leah coming up which will be up there as well, we haven’t worked each other in three years so I’m looking forward to that one – BEW vs RCW in London, Sat 19th September.

And finally, who would be your dream opponent, past or present?

That’s a toughie, there are so many;

Lita
Victoria
Jetta
Cheerleader Melissa
Crazy Mary Dobson
Jackie
Mickie James
The list goes on and on…
