To celebrate a historical year for women’s wrestling, in collaboration with Pro Wrestling Illustrated, Bell To Belles interviewed over 20 women who have ranked on this year’s PWI 500 ranking, creating the “Women of the 2021 PWI 500” Interview Series. To empower women in wrestling even more, some of the interviews were conducted by the talented women who make up wrestling media.
Mickie Knuckles, who ranked #390 on the PWI 500, chats with guest interviewer Candace Cordelia of PWI on her favorite matches of the past year, renewed interest in deathmatch wrestling, and more!
During the interview, Mickie is asked to share her thoughts on the resurgence of fan interest in deathmatch wrestling.
“I mean, obviously it’s good for all deathmatch wrestlers,” stated Knuckles. “It means that there’s this need that we can fulfill. My only concern is, we’ve got this resurgence and we’ve got all these new fans, and that’s great, but is this something that if there’s too much of, there’s over saturation of it, is this something that will eventually feel forced and fizzle out? Or is this something that people can continually stay engaged in, and entertained by, to where we don’t have to get to the level of somebody actually dying in a deathmatch to entertain you.”
