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.
Masha Slamovich, who ranked #420 on the PWI 500, chats with Warren Hayes of Bell To Belles on staying busy, NWA EmPowerrr, Borscht at the Beach, and more!
During the interview, Masha was asked how it felt being part of the historic all-women’s pay-per-view NWA EmPowerrr, earlier this summer. The Russian Dynamite talked about the incredible event, and the crazy dropkick that sent Tootie Lynn flying, during the match.
“It meant so much to me, because of NWA and the history. This is the first time that NWA’s back at The Chase, and we were, the women, in the main event. And I believe that this was the first that wrestling, at all, was back at The Chase in what? A long time? It was a really incredible experience, and to be in that ring and set a fire, as I did, and be on fire, it was a really great moment that I’m not going to forget.
And yeah, it was pretty fun sending Tootie Lynn into her mom’s arms in the front row.”
