Baby Doll was interviewed by WrestlingInc. at Manhattan’s ‘WrestleCon’ during Wrestlemania weekend. During the interview, she discussed her career, specially the time she turned on Dusty Rhodes as well as what it was like to be the only female in the locker room. Here are the highlights:
On Turning On Dusty Rhodes & Being Scared Of Fan Reaction:
It was scary, especially when I turned on Dusty and put Flair’s foot on the rope, and a sold-out Charlotte Coliseum went silent. I thought, ‘they are going to kill me.’ It’s crazy now to look back because we didn’t have security, we didn’t have guardrails. There was hardly no one walking us to and from the dressing room, so we literally had to fight our way to and from the dressing room almost every night.
On Being The Only Woman In The Locker Room:
It’s crazy because now you go into the dressing room and there’s 10 or 20 girls sometimes. Back then, I was like the only girl. I was the only girl traveling, I was the only girl in the dressing room. Totally different time and for me it was like I was meant to be there, I fell right in. I knew the guys, I knew how everything worked, it was one of the stellar parts of my life. It was really cool. I know where every broom closet and every dark corner of every building on the east coast because I would try and go hide because I needed an hour or two to get ready. I didn’t wanna see a bunch of all their stuff and going on, so I’d go hide. [Laughs]
On Her Best Memories Of Wrestling:
The absolutely ridiculous amount of money I made, the friendships I have now. Honest to God, the first year I worked with Tully, we had 15 days off, no weekends, no holidays. We were doing something every day except for 15 days.
