Francine Discusses How She Broke Into The Wrestling Business

ECW original Francine recently appeared on an episode of Stories With Brisco and Bradshaw, where she talked about a number of topics including how she first broke into the wrestling business.

Francine said, “I met Blackjack Brown. He was a pretty famous photographer. He did a lot of indie shows, and he did ECW and stuff. I’ll never forget — he gave me his card and he said, ‘If you ever want to be a manager or a valet, I can get you 50 bucks on the indies.’ And I was like, ‘What does that mean?’ Because I didn’t even know what an indie was.”

On seeing a commercial for ECW:

“They had a commercial and it said, ‘Do you want to be a manager, a wrestler, or a referee? Call this number.’ I picked up the phone and I called the number.”

On joining ECW:

“That’s when Paul Heyman was just coming into the company. They told me to go to this one show in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, where I was going to be a beauty pageant winner, and they were gonna call me Ms. Montgomeryville.”
