Razor made her first appearance on the most recent episode of AXS TV‘s WOW Women of Wrestling with an ominous promo. She later appeared at ringside to support Fury, her associate in the Psycho Sisters, a goth-punk girl gang straight out of an ’80s movie, and get involved with her match with EDM-personified wrestler Chantilly Chella. So far WOW viewers have only briefly seen Razor in action, but independent wrestling fans might already be familiar with her work various promotions as Sarah Wolfe, manager to Tyler Bateman, or know her as one of the hosts of the Women Wrestling Friends Podcast.
With Spandex talked to Razor about her lifelong wrestling fandom, the WOW training school, and more. The conversation is below and has been edited for length and clarity.
With Spandex: Let’s talk about first how you got involved with WOW.
Razor: As a little girl watching wrestling I always felt like I wasn’t big enough to be a wrestler and I wasn’t cute enough to be the kind of wrestler I was seeing on TV a lot more as I got older. It was women who had to look a certain way, basically like models. And as I got older, hit puberty, I was like, “Oh, well, I am neither tall nor hot, so I can’t really do this.” And so I kind of gave up on the dream for a while. And eventually, as an adult, it kind of dawned on me one day, when have I ever let anything stop me from something that I wanted to do? I never have, whether it’s my size or whatever.
So I googled it, I looked into it, and more than anything, what I found myself wishing was, “I wish GLOW was still around,” because that was the kind of wrestler that I want to be. I want to be full of character. I want to be full of life. I want to be someone who’s more than just, “Oh, she can do a moonsault, cool.” And so I eventually found out that WOW existed and it was like my dream come true. And then to try out and get into my dream – it’s basically been a year of dreams for me. It’s pretty awesome.
How was the transition from just being a fan to becoming a working wrestler?
I didn’t have as much trouble with it as I know some people did. Some people feel like they lose their love of wrestling when they make that transition, because don’t get me wrong, everyone who wrestles was a fan of wrestling at some point. It’s how you become a wrestler, and you don’t make it as a wrestler if that’s not how you feel.
