NWA women’s champion Kamille recently spoke with WrestleZone to hype up this weekend’s 312 pay-per-view, where she will be defending her title against La Rosa Negra.
During the interview, Kamille opened up about how excited she was for her first-ever meeting with Negra, revealing she’s never encountered her inside a wrestling ring.
I am very excited to get in there. It’ll be a first-time matchup. We’ve never, not even in a tag or anything, we’ve never touched in the ring. And it’s something that’s really exciting for me just because if anybody saw the promo that came out from our Powerrr episode. Yeah, I’ve known LaRosa since I was doing my training down in Florida, however many years ago that was.
Kamille knows that their showdown at 312 will be one of the toughest challenges she has had yet.
I remember just knowing that she was someone that’s been all over the world and so respected in so many things. I was just new and looking up to everybody in the locker room. It’s just funny because now, like I said, like the tables have turned and I have what she wants which is ‘The Burke’ and I know it’s going to be a hell of a fight. She is a warrior, she’s a fighter. I just have to go in there ready for a fight. Ready to go as long as long as need be. Get my cardio up. But I do think at the end of the night, it’s going to be ‘and still your champion.’
The champ later recalls meeting La Rosa Negra for the first time.
I want to say, could be wrong, but I want to say it was like a SHINE [Wrestling] show down in Tampa. I think it was called the Orpheum, that was when they used to do their SHINE shows there. We were all just in the girls locker room, and I just had a little, a dark match on that show. I wasn’t even on the main [card], but just being able to watch her in the ring and her confidence and also how she treated other people. She’s just a nice human being and knowing that she’s done so much in the business, she still didn’t talk down to people or, have her nose up at people. So that was something that I think that’s the thing that I admire most about any human being in the world is not just their skill in the wrestling ring, but how they are as a human being and how they treat others.
Back in February, Kamille received a special honor from the women’s wrestling hall of fame. You can read about that here.
