Roxy Astor (from GLOW) Interview

When Tina Ferrari left GLOW after season 2, a replacement for her was needed. That was when Roxy Astor came onto the scene, joining the GLOW roster and remaining with the company for the rest of GLOW's run. In this interview, Roxy discusses GLOW, the Roxy character, and her most recent involvement in the pro-wrestling industry.

Q: Why did you enter the pro-wrestling industry?

A: I entered the pro-wrestling industry because I needed a job at the time, not knowing what i was getting myself in to.

Q: What was the best part about working for GLOW?

A: The best part of working for GLOW, has to be the amazing true fans, when they love you, they love you, when they don't watch out!

Q: Currently, former GLOW director Matt Cimber is working on a new female wrestling promotion named Femme d’Action. Do you see it having a bright future?

A: Femme d'Action is going to take over where GLOW left off, empowering women again! I was actually a judge on the new show Femme d'Action and my daughter a contestant, let me tell you there is nothing like it out there, it will be an international hit! Another home run for Matt Cimber.

Q: What are your thoughts on the following former G.L.O.W. members:

A: BEASTIE - What an amazing character inside and outside of the ring, she could get more guys then any of us GLOW girls.

MAJOR TANYA - She hated to lose with a passion, especially to me.

WIDOW - Widow was actually played by the same girl who played Dementia, and with this character you get to hear her southern drawl.

DEMENTIA - Probably one of the funnest girls to wrestle, being that she didn't talk we had to come up with a lot of good stuff, and that axe, that thing was real!

ZELDA - Funny inside and outside of the ring, I wish she would reach out to us now though, we miss her.

LIGHTNING - What can I say, the girl has no rhythm which made her even more adorable, to this day I don't think she realizes how much rhythm she doesn't have, she is actually the trainer for the new show Femme D'Action.

DAVID MCLANE - Never knew him and never met him, I just know that he is doing POWW, my daughter Kayla tried out for it and didn't even get a response back. WELL IN YOUR FACE DAVID MCLANE, she is going to be in the new show Femme d'Action.

Q: Which do you feel was your best match in GLOW?

A: My matches with Godiva I felt were my best, because she got to me like no other could, with that mouth!

Q: Which was your favorite match in GLOW?

A: My favorite GLOW match was with Dementia when Big Bad Momma put a spell on us and I became Dementia and Dementia became Roxy Astor. Very funny!

Q: Have you done any wrestling since GLOW?

A: I did a small match about a year ago, c'mon Williams were getting up there in age, give me a break! lol

Q: Throughout the years, many female wrestling promotions have come and gone, but none of them made an impact like GLOW did. To this day, GLOW remains the all-time favorite of many women's wrestling fans. In your opinion, what was it about GLOW that has made it stand out from other female wrestling promotions?

A: The reason that I think GLOW has made such an impact is good timing, great writers, amazing director and quirky off the wall females, gotta love us!

Q: Were you a wrestling fan before you were involved with GLOW?

A: Here's a secret I was a GLOW wrestling fan, I use to watch Tina Ferrari and want to be her, c'mon what girl didn't, well who would have thought I would be the new replacement, Ms. Roxy Astor. Not me.

Q: Comparing the view of female wrestling during the existence of GLOW to the view of female wrestling in the year 2013, do you feel that female wrestling is more respected? Also, do you feel that the quality of female wrestling has improved?

A: To compare wrestling back then to the WWE Divas, you really can't, I think the Divas take a back seat to the men.

Q: Do you watch pro-wrestling currently?

A: I will find myself sometimes watching pro-wrestling its like a car wreck you can't look away even though it's sooo wrong. lol

Q: How much of you was a part of the character? Or do you feel that you and Roxy Astor are like night and day?

A: I am so much like Roxy Astor its funny, were strong, competitive and as we're kicking your ass we smile for the camera, now I don't have Roxy's red hair or her money, but I still love my girl Tiffany Million.

Q: Who would you have liked to wrestle, that you did not?

A: I would have loved to wrestle the Housewives and been called a whore through the whole match, they were my favorite in GLOW.

Q: What is your long-term goal?

A: My long-term goal is just staying true to myself, family and fans, and showing my daughter Kayla who had to follow in her mom's footsteps the ropes!
