#WrestlebaeWednesday 3.7.18 | @HeelsnHeadlocks
Happy Wednesday! I'm back with another Wrestlebae for ya headtop. This bae combines fashion with her love of wrestling, hence the Instagram name @HeelsAndHeadlocks. Amariz is notorious for her mirror pics and I stan them so much. She's one of the first Wrestlebae's that I followed and I was definitely interested in hearing her wrestling background story. I love her even more because our introduction into wrestling is similar. Read up on AZ here.
How did you get into wrestling?
My cousins actually got me into it when I was younger. They used to spend the summers at my house and I was hooked after they got me to watch an episode of Raw/SmackDown. I believe my dad used to watch lucha libre when he was younger as well so I think I was destined to be a fan.
What is your earliest wrestling memory?
The Rock vs Stone Cold at Mania 17. Two of the greats going toe to toe at WrestleMania… you can’t get much better than that. There was so much history between them and the buildup to the match was something else. I didn’t even know who to cheer for. I was so conflicted when they both stepped into the ring but regardless of who you were rooting for, you knew you were getting a good match.
Your favorite wrestler of all time? (male, female or both)
Ok, don’t hate me but I’m going to pick 3 all time male superstars because I can’t pick. Eddie Guerrero, Undertaker & Shawn Michaels. They’re all incredible. I adore Eddie because of his latino heat gimmick. Being Latina, I just connected with his character because he represented the Latino community. Do I really need to explain Taker? We’re all in awe every time his music hits and he walks out to the ring. He’s ICONIC. And HBK? Well, I could write you a book, but I won’t. He’s great on the mic, he knows how to take bumps and make them seem realistic AND you’ve got DX. Plus, have you seen that picture of him wearing nothing but the title? I rest my case.
My favorite female superstar is definitely Trish Stratus. She’s strong, beautiful and she kicks ass in the ring. She helped pave the way for the current female superstars along with Lita, Molly Holly, etc. We’re a long way from the bra and panties matches as we’ve seen in the past few years. I love Trish as a face and heel, but I absolutely have to say that her as a heel is hands down the best.
Best match of all time?
I’m so indecisive and can’t pick just one favorite so I’m just going to share one of my all time favorite matches. I’m going to be cliché and pick Shawn Michaels vs Taker at Mania 25. We all know it was a phenomenal match and again, since they’re two of my top three favorite male wrestlers, it’s an easy choice. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! Especially when Undertaker hit the tombstone and Shawn managed to kick out. Like what??? I really thought that he would defeat Taker’s streak. I was so excited for this possibility on one hand, but on the other I didn’t want anyone to take that way from the Undertaker. If you’re not already a wrestling fan and happen to read this, I recommend you go watch that match ASAP.
If you were a WWE Superstar what would your theme song be?
I wish I had an answer for this. I’ve thought about this before but I’ve never been able to definitively pick one song. I’d want to represent for the Latinos and probably walk out to something in Spanish though. Maybe like bachata…. lol I know that’s more for dance (and I have no idea how it would work), but hey, Lana and Carmella both have a background in dance so I can incorporate that in too. Otherwise I’m picking G-Eazy. Just because lol ;)
Best Match Stipulation? (TLC, Steel Cage, etc.)
It’s between steel cage and TLC. I love how intense steel cage matches can get. Don’t get me wrong, I have heart attacks when the superstars do crazy shit (Shane, I’m looking at you), but I love the idea of being trapped inside and fighting your way out. And TLC? Tables. Ladders. Chairs. It gets real.
Best WWE Theme song of all time?
Trish Stratus. Hands down. The laugh at the beginning of the song gives me chills every single time. I go crazy.
I’m going to go with the Royal Rumble. I’ve always loved them, even when they have rumble matches during non PPV matches. I love watching the superstars eliminate one another because they’re all competing for a shot to headline the grandest stage of the year. We never know who we’re going to get when the buzzer sounds and it’s so exciting when you hear the next entrant’s music hit. Things get tense and it’s each man (and now woman) for themselves. Friendships/alliances are put to the side. We saw that when Roman eliminated Seth.
If you look at my instagram, it’s pretty obvious. LOL. Finn and Seth are my two favorite superstars but Seth is my number one crush. I mean, I constantly post pictures wearing his merch from the shop or Black & Brave.
F*ck, Marry, Kill: Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Randy Orton? Explain why.
Randy Orton was my first crush, but I’m sorry, I’m going to kill him just because of the other two choices. And you’re really making this hard for me to choose between the other two, but Seth is my superstar crush so I’m gonna marry him. That leaves me with FF, F*ck Finn. Who wouldn’t want an opportunity when he’s got abs like that?
