Allysin Kay On Her Experiences in Mae Young Classic, Being Booked For Bloodsport II

– Allysin Kay spoke with Fightful for a new interview and discussed her experience in the Mae Young Classic, appearing at the upcoming Bloodsport II and more. You can see some highlights and the video below:

On being on Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport II: “I tweeted earlier this year that I wanted to get booked for a Bloodsport next year. I was thinking at like WrestleCon Weekend. I didnt realize they were even running again this year. And I said I wanted to get booked so I could, quote unquote, ‘Butterbean these hoes’ — and then it actually happened. So that gained a lot of traction, a lot of people were excited about that. I am absolutely interested in incorporating more of that into my style. Ive been training and fighting in mixed martial arts for several years now. It was a weird transition for me because I was already wrestling for years before I started training in MMA. So, I didnt want to suddenly change my character and like, Im an MMA fighter now, Im gonna wear a mouth guard to the ring. And I felt that was kind of hokey, cause Ive seen people do it and I feel its a good substitution if you have less of a personality, no offense. But I just feel if you already have something going, why change it? But I would absolutely be interested in seeing what we can do here. I think this where Im supposed to shove history down your throat. ‘Were making history! This is the first time a woman is booked on Bloodsport!'”

On her experience in the Mae Young Classic: “I got so much good feedback that I almost thought people were lying to me. Because when something like that happens, everyone goes into something like that thinking okay, my ultimate goal is to get a contract or something like that. If that doesnt happen you think, well I did something wrong. But nobody had anything bad to say. So it was weird. It was weird to get so much good feedback at the same time. A lot of people have told me that was their favorite match from the Classic from the first round or from the whole thing. I actually just tweeted about it today because its one year ago today that the first tapings were. So that was my first match back after eight months was at the Mae Young Classic. (As far as a contract) I wouldnt say I expected one, but of course its a possibility. Everyone thats going through their doors, theres a possibility of a contract. So its an option. And I mean at that point my biggest goal was just to survive and have a great match because it was a really big stage to come back on.”

On her Impact Wrestling run as Sienna: “Oh, man. When I first got to Impact I feel like it changed five times in the first month. There were so many changes going on already, so I can only imagine how people who had been there for years felt. Im still on good terms with Impact and the office and at Impact and all that. Some of my best friends still work there. I mean, anything is possible. I dont think Ive burned any bridges, I dont think.”
