Is it Pretty Hard For a Black Girl
Some of you probably don't know, but i have recently started professional wrestling training just early this month, it was recently just a 30 day trial to see if i wanted to continue and i must say, it pretty much sucks (I am still not comfortable doing back bumps, and my cardio sucks balls), but i do plan on going back, hopefully in July, so at the moment i am saving up for the actually training.
So anyway, at the end of my last session, my trainer sat down with me, and was asking me if i wanted to continue, and what i plan on doing in wrestling. I clearly told him that i wanted to be the best, and i wanted to stand out as much as possible. I wanted to be the either the next Taker, Ric Flair, The Rock, Trish, Lita, Kurt Angle, Mickie, Melina ect. I refuse to be just that Black girl in the ring, I refuse to be the angry black girl, i refuse to be a hoe with a pimp, be some dancer ( I can't dance), or be a black girl who happens to be jealous of some white girl. I want to be the best, the best that has ever been, i want to be unique as possible. He then tells me gimmicks are based on stereotypes, and that the only way for the crowd to react (mind you i live in racist ass Texas), i then responds by saying then want would be the point of me to be in wrestling, if i not in it to be the best or to make a difference.
He also tell me, that since I am a Black Women, i have to work 5 times harder. Mind you, my trainer has 15 years of experience and himself is also African/Black American.
What he is saying is right, but honestly i really didn't need to him to tell me that all, shit I been a wrestling fan for 15 years. In mainstream women wrestling, there has only been 1 AA Divas champion, and only 2 AA to ever hold the Women's champion.
How i would describe the wresting biz for black women, is how i will compare to the entertainment business. The only roles that we seem to have is to either a angry black women, a dancer, and the help. Both Cameron and Naomi were dancers, and Alicia Fox was pretty much a token black girl with Team Bellas.
Even though I been on Naomi ass about her constantly changing her gear style and hair color, no one cant deny that Naomi has try so hard to get notice by the wwe officials to notice. And i honestly feel like WWE is never going to give her a chance.
For the grammar mistake btw.
