Welcome to another edition of the No Punches Pulled interview series. History is being made as for the first time ever a WOMAN is pulling no punches. My personal friend who I met long before she was in NYWC. Ladies & gentlemen, Dirty Cherry.
RL: Were you a wrestling fan growing up? DC: I was a fan growing up. My Dad and I would watch wrestling together as a kid. He even took me to Madison Square Garden for events. I loved Sherri Martle. I loved her outfits and makeup. I wanted to be just like her.
RL: When did you decide "I'm going to be a wrestler"? DC: I always wanted to be a wrestler. I had friends who were into wrestling brought me by the LIWF Doghouse for a show and after that I decided this was what I wanted to do.
RL: How did you end up in the QWA school? DC: I ended up at QWA with Tara Charisma. I told her I wanted to train and she invited me to go with her. I was there for a few times then it closed.
RL: How hard was training? DC: I didn't train long but I liked the drills and how structured it was. I really liked Mikey as a trainer and a person.
RL: What are your memories of Jac Sabboth's ICW? DC: ICW shows were fun....but terrible because I always ended up doing ring crew with the guys until very late at night.
RL: Do you think Jac stiffed wrestlers? DC: I have no knowledge of who did/didn't stiff.
RL: What are your memories of Frank Goodman's USA Pro Wrestling? DC: Very long but fun to hang out with my friends at, not really into the ticket seller thing.

RL: What are your memories of Danny Demanto? DC: We have good chemistry. He's someone to this day I consider a friend. And someone I would trust in the ring otherwise I would never let him frogsplash me which he did at an old ACE/AWA show. Looking forward to working more with him now that he's down here in Florida.
RL: What are your memories of J-Kronic? DC: Despite our past relationship, I think the world of him. He is a great guy and someone who left wrestling way too soon.
RL: What are your memories of Foxy Dreams & Damien Dragon? DC: Well as many people know I have way too many memories with my bestie Foxy....I love her to death. We have been through it all together. I loved our in ring action against each other. I think she's a great manager. I only wish we would have gotten to work in the ring together one more time, but never say never with her lol. Damien is a good worker and friend. Also was the first guy to ever really try and train with me, I will always be grateful to him.
RL: How did you end up in Mike Morgan's ACE Pro Wrestling then known as AWA? DC: First ACE/AWA show I ever went to was during a blizzard if that doesn't show dedication to wrestling lol. After that I kept going to their shows with J-Kronic. I loved it there and still do and always will. Mike Morgan gave me my first real wrestling break and also made sure I was used right in storylines and a part of the action. ACE will always be a home to me no matter where I go.
RL: What are your memories of Missy Sampson? DC: I loved working with her at ACE/AWA?....Great worker.
RL: What ae your memories of Manslaughter? DC: I managed him an Ron Price at ACE in a tag team called Mass Desttuction. It was fun. I always felt so small with them.
RL: What are your memories of Neeno Capone & Envy? DC: Great high flying tag team. They do some of the craziest spots I have ever seen.

RL: What are your memories of Mike Donovan? DC: Donovan is a staple in the AWA/ACE since the beginning. Liked him best in Style & Finesse tag team with Rob Vegas?
RL: What are your memories Of Joe Hardway? DC: Love The South Side Playaz Club. He's a good worker.
RL: What are your memories of Jay Lethal? DC: Lethal is a great talent and person. Makes me laugh that he loves Hot Shot Mike Reed's old entrance music. Also, I think he deserves all the success in the world.
RL: What are your memories of Chris Rockwell? DC: I managed him & Eric Cooper during the early days of AWA/ACE. Fun time for me, very entertaining persona in wrestling.
RL: What are your memories of Peter Van Orton? DC: I loved working for him...especially the T-birds gimmick before it was on WWE lol. Where has he been lately?
RL: Peter was inducted in the ACE hall of fame in 2010. What are your memories of Dan Dynasty? DC: Managed him at AWA/ACE also. Loved the entrance and the gimmick. Another talent that shouldn't have left wrestling.

RL: What are your memories of Tara Charisma? DC: She's another one that I think left wrestling too soon. I loved training with her. She and I have a lot of fun memories together. Just wish I had the chance to work with her even once other than training.
RL: What are your memories of The Elm Street Kids? DC: Crazy ass dudes. You never knew what they were going to come to the ring wearing and what they would do. I haven't seen then in a while.
RL: What are your memories of Brolly? DC: Saints of Brutality with him & Stockade was a great tag team. Loved how dark it was totally me. Brolly is also a sweet guy and always felt like I was a part of their team rather than just a manager.
RL: What are your memories of William Wyeth? DC: Has given his blood for ACE.......lieterally! One of ACE's homegrown talents who I would genuinely like to see work other places to.
RL: I'd like to see Wyeth wrestle elsewhere myself.

RL: What are your memories of Jorge Luis Rivera? DC: An ACE main stay...also great main event guy.
RL: What are your memories of Stockade? DC: This is a hard one. I have so many memories with Stockade. I loved being his manager, not to mention his friend. He's a great guy who is finally getting the recognition he deserves. He's one of the people up north I miss the most.
RL: How did you end up in PWF-NJ which later became Jersey Rampage Wrestling? DC: At PWF-NJ I teamed with my bestie Foxxy(The pussycats). It was great to have tag matches and have the opportunity to work some of the indies greatest talents like Ariel & Alere Little Feather.
RL: What are your memories of Joe Rules & Taylor Nicole? DC: Unique wrestling couple always did their thing. Had a blast working with them.
RL: What are your memories of "Hot Shot" Mike Reed? DC: One of the greatest wrestling minds ever. I have learned so much from him both in and out of wrestling. I'm not just saying that because he's my boyfriend. He doesn't get the respect and acknowledgement that he deserves. He truly lives this business.

RL: What are your memories of Dan Payne? DC: Dan Payne was an original AWA/Ace guy who had a misfortunate accident and now I think he runs shows. I hope he's doing well.
RL: How did you end up in NYWC? DC: I had been to NYWC shows for years just to hang out and watch the shows. The one night after a show Shane asked me if I would be interested in working fo NYWC managing The Dirty Rednex and calling myslef Dirty Cherry. I said sure. Then the next show I debuted with them. I had a blast working for NYWC.
RL: What are your memories of Dirty Rednex? DC: Interesting crew of guys. Gimmick was fun but totally not me. Favorite matches withthem was when we were sitting in lawn chairs eating fried chicken lol.
RL: Why did you leave NYWC? DC: I left NYWC honestly because I followed my heart and made a big decision to move to Florida with Mike Reed. I am not going to apologize for my decision. I do feel bad leaving without truly saying goodbye to certain people. It's been one of greatest decisions ever. My advice to them is everyone in management needs to be on the same page creatively.
RL: Word Association-Mikey Whipwreck DC: Insane---but in a good way.
RL: Curse DC: True pro!
RL: Crusher Doogan DC: Mastermind
RL: Dickie Rodz DC: Starbucks buddy lol.
RL: All Money Is Legal DC: Great workers.
RL: King Mega DC: BIG MAN!
RL: Appolyon DC: Will always be Joey Braggiol to me.
RL: Shane DC: Convience Stor Guy lol.
RL: What do you think of people who fake post on message boards? DC: They need to get lives!
RL: What do you think of the NYWC message board? DC: Good place to find out information about shows and ask questions.
RL: Would you ever come back to NYWC? DC: I would love to someday. If they'd have me and also I would love to show them what wrestling I have learned as part of the starlet division. When I was still there I was the only girl. Would have been nice to have that when I was there.
RL: Is there anything you would like to say to the fans? DC: I love and miss NYWC fans. Florida fans aren't the same as you guys!
