Angelina Discusses Contract Status, Turning Face, Impersonators
SLAM! Wrestling recently conducted an interview with TNA Women’s Knockout Champion Angelina Love, who discussed numerous topics including how much longer she plans to continue wrestling, her character becoming fan friendly, and the numerous people impersonating online.
When asked about the recently reunited pairing of she and Velvet Sky, she noted her reservations of the group becoming fan-friendly.
“It’s been different working as a babyface,” Love said of the change. “I was very skeptical at first, because it’s so easy to do that character as a heel. But the fans really accepted it, and they’ve been really happy about it, especially to have us going against Madison.”
While Love is very healthy, she doesn’t foresee herself “wrestling forever.” She noted to SLAM! when her current TNA contract expires.
“I know that I’m not going to be able to wrestle forever, that my body will one day not let me continue to do it,” she said. “But, my body is still moving, I’m not burned out on travel, and I still love it — it’s still fun. So I definitely want to keep doing it.
“(My current contract goes) until the end of 2012, so I definitely want to be doing that,” she said about her long-term plans. “Eventually, I definitely want to get into acting. I feel that I speak well, and I can play a good character.”
The founding member of The Beautiful People also took the opportunity to clear up her status online as there are numerous people posing as her across various social networking websites.
“I want my fans to know this. I do not have FormSpring, I do not have Beebo, I do not have Twitter — there is someone who is posing as me on Twitter. I have a Facebook page,” she continued, “but it’s just for friends and family. The posers are ridiculous. I’ve actually written some of them, telling them, ‘You suck, get a life, and stop imitating me.’ Then,” she laughed disbelievingly, “they get mad at me!”
“(For fans), I have a Myspace page, at myspace.com/angel_williams14, and my official fansite at angel-williams.net. I hope people check those out, because I do appreciate everyone’s support.”
