One day I was scrolling through my tumblr blog and a boy peered over my shoulder. He saw a picture of Dean Ambrose and said “You watch WWE?” I told him yes and that I loved it. He replied with “Girls aren’t really into that stuff.”
A girl can be into anything a boy can be into to. I love wrestling and I am a female. I get just as into it as my guy friends that watch it. I form my own opinions about it and analyze the matches and it’s fun.
Just cause I’m a girl doesn’t mean I’m not into wrestling.
But, like, what absolutely kills me about Cameron’s release is that she was really putting her all into this. She literally asked to be brought down into NXT. She sacrificed being on the main roster and being on Total Divas, the easiest route she could’ve continued on, just to be better and stronger for the company. I still remember, the time she was away for a while, how she documented working out and getting her body into the perfect shape for WWE. And then she started showing short snippets of her training. Until finally she posted up a video of a full sequence of moves with her trainer and she did so well! Like, the improvement was so much.
And then she posted up that video of her literally crying because all she wanted was a chance. She was begging; sucked up her pride and begged for a chance. Not only that but she was proving her own. There aren’t many times you see a wrestlers true struggles at the forefront but she let us all in for that. Cameron loved working with her fans and helping them and it showed. Especially through her anti-bullying campaign and her prom dress/makeover contest she did. And that was all on her own! Cameron was often times seen as a bimbo-esque type character, vain and mean, but she was nothing of the sort in real life and that showed so much.
And then she goes ahead and she starts wrestling in NXT house shows and everyone always talks about how much she’s improved. People who went to NXT house shows always supported her. Hell, she held her own in a televised match with Asuka and Alexa Bliss. And she was also taking some acting/improv (I believe) classes to better herself in that department too. All WWE had to do was put her in a storyline and it all literally would’ve worked out on it’s own. Cameron had the perfect recipe for her own revival but WWE said ‘fuck that’ and released her anyways.
You know, I remember looking at her twitter and she was talking to some fans. It was last week, I believe, and she said all she wanted to do was be back in the ring. And when someone had asked her why she wasn’t, all she mentioned was ‘if you guys only knew the struggle’. It just goes to show that WWE really doesn’t care about how much drive a wrestler has. They just care about how quickly they can make money out of a wrestler instantly and not in the long run.
All I know is that Cameron is a smart woman. She’s intelligent and her resume is impressive as hell. She’s also made sure to put her name out there a lot, so it’s not like she isn’t gonna be able to hold her own. But it’s just highly depressing that no matter how much you show you want it, WWE won’t even give you that chance. Whatever she decides to do, whether that’s working within wrestling or out of it, I’m definitely going to support the crap out of her! She’s is the epitome of getting off your ass, sacrificing the good things and working as hard as you can for whatever you want.
Once, while prepping for a match, we were standing in this dimly lit room. Jon was talking and apparently decided he needed a drink. He reached for a bottle of water and began to chug. Suddenly, with a disgusted look in his face, he stops chugging as he was realizing it wasn’t water, but rather a random bottle of dip spit. Needless to say it wasn’t what he was expecting. He raced out the door and immediately threw it up. However, approximately five minutes after that, he still climbed in the ring with me and we kicked the crap out of each other in one of our epic battles. Sign of a true professional wrestler: Five Star performance no matter what!!

wrestling is more than just that stupid question - “is it fake?”. Pro
wrestling is an art form! It enables one to become stronger and better,
then to travel the world and become a star. Its what you put in. Its
about passion and heart, skill and uniqueness. Every wrestler has their
goals - sometimes we win or sometimes we lose. For some pro wrestlers
winning a championship title, does not define
a winner in their eyes. We pro wrestlers want to master our craft and
find the true wrestler within us - that why we live in a suit case,
search far and wide for that person - That pro wrestler! Its now time
for South Africa to witness Pro wrestling as the developing art, its
turning out to be all over the world!
