#WrestlebaeWednesday 10.10.18 | @PizzaLinaa
Happy Wednesday and thank you for checking in on yet another Wrestlebae Wednesday. This week’s featured bae is someone that has been long deserving of a Wrestlebae Wednesday feature. Her cosplay of Sasha Banks has gained widespread attention even from the Boss herself. Everyone meet Lina, Lina is our Asian-Canadian Unproblematic Princess. She’s so lovable and so passionate that it was due time that her story was told here on WBW. Peep her wrestling origins here.
How did you get into wrestling?
I've been a fan for as long as I can remember. I think it started out as a family thing. I just remember always watching WWF and WCW with my parents and my sister and I guess it was our bonding time. PPV's were the best because our cable box was set up downstairs in the basement and all of us would gather together and have so much fun. They don't watch it anymore, but I obviously haven't grown out of it. There were times when I stopped watching for a bit (2008-2012ish??) but I would still catch it here and there. I always kept myself a little bit updated. In all honesty, what REALLY got me back into it officially was Sasha Banks.
What is your earliest wrestling memory?
The first show that I went to was in 1995 but apparently I was too young to remember that. My earliest memory was probably the Montreal Screwjob. (Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart) I still remember that moment like it was yesterday but was also still a little too young to comprehend what was actually going on so I didn't know he got screwed. I just remember a whole bunch of confusion going on.
Your favorite wrestler of all time? (male, female or both)
Okay here goes.......THE BOSS SASHA BANKS. This incredible woman just exudes bad bitch energy. I've loved so many people before she came, but I honestly can't think of anyone that I've stanned as much as I stan Sasha. I think it's obvious she's one of my faves. She's an amazing wrestler, she gives all your faves their best matches (I said what I said), has a great look, she's a good face, an awesome heel, and she has so much passion and love for wrestling. She wants to be the best and she is the best IMO. She goes out there and proves it in every match she has. I truly admire her in every way and can legit go on forever about her. Like I said above, she’s the person that officially got me back into wrestling. She makes me so emo. ❤️
Best match of all time?
There are so many. Sasha vs Bayley Takeover BK? Incredible. Taker vs HBK WM25? Magical. But a personal fave is Rock vs Austin WM17. Also one of my favorite Wrestlemania's. I remember how much I LOVED the Rock/Austin feud back in the day. They always had amazing chemistry. It's just one of the earliest rivalries I can remember/start to fully comprehend and that turn at the end had me shook. The promo package had me shook! I loved wrestling so much.
If you were a WWE Superstar what would your theme song be?
I'm gonna be here all night if I have to think of a song for myself. I just wanna have a bop and be a bad bitch like Sasha and Bianca Belair.
Best Match Stipulation? (TLC, Steel Cage, etc.)
Ladder Match! Anything with ladders - it can be a tag, singles, MITB, etc. The excitement and anxiety of watching the superstars climb to the top of the ladder is so thrilling. There have been so many iconic moments with ladders--- Razor vs Shawn. Edge spearing Jeff from the ladder. Every time Jeff jumps from a ladder. Iconic MITB matches, etc. And when your fave to win grabs that belt or briefcase? Amazing.
Best WWE Theme song of all time?
TRIPLE H - MY TIME. That's my childhood. I'm such a sucker for nostalgia & most of the themes were so good back then.
Royal Rumble is definitely my favorite and it is the one PPV that I've yet to go to. I absolutely have to go and I'm making it a goal of mine. It's so exciting because you have no idea who's coming out each time until the music hits. It's pretty cool to see surprise entrants. Very fun PPV that begins the Road to Wrestlemania!!
OH and I'm also extremely happy that the women now have their own rumble match. This just gives me 100000x more reason to go.
My first ever crush was Razor Ramon and I would always choose him for video games hahah but the one that has stayed consistent with me is ...Jeff Hardy. *sigh*
Fuck, Marry, Kill: Karl Anderson, Andrade Cien Almas, Aleister Black? Explain why.
I'm mad.. what is this SET UP?!
Okay, listen. I'm going to have to kill Aleister cause I'm loyal. I DON’T WANT NO TYPE OF PROBLEMS! Feel me? My fave can find a new love right? This makes no sense but oh well!
Fuck Andrade tbh because he’s hot. Just look at him. What would we talk about tho? Idk so fuck and move on.
Marry Karl so I can be his next Asian wife. And he’s cute af with his kids.
I don’t like this question
