Heather Patera (daughter of former star Ken Patera) on unique looks in female wrestling, her inspiration, working with UK legend Saraya Knight
Mar 13, 2014 - 09:18 AM


Kayfabe Kickout interview with "Miss Natural" Heather Patera
Host: Richard Boudreau
Interview available at Kayfabekickout.com/6/post/2014/03/interview-with-miss-natural-heather-patera-former-six-time-wlw-ladies-champion-current-tcw-superstar.html

Heather on whether it's vital for female pro wrestlers to have a certain look, to be more important than having raw wrestling talent: "I think WWE has forced people to think women should look a certain way. Like a "Diva." Some of the best talent I've seen isn't "Diva" quality. Tattoos, piercings, a few extra pounds, Mohawks you name it. These women are themselves when they walk out that curtain, gives the fans something different than a 115-pound cookie cutter half wrestler, shoot I'm sitting at 160lbs 5'4 definitely not your typical TV female wrestler. These are women who mix their lifestyle with amazing talent. I LOVE SHIMMER for that. Its not cookie cutter. Its based on talent not looks."

Heather on who her inspirations were to get into professional wrestling: "Honestly, there wasn't a female influence, I mean it was cool to see women do it but none of them inspired me, I was inspired by the men. My Dad, Mr. Perfect, Rick Rude, Nick Bockwinkel etc."

Heather on what it was like working with UK Women's Wrestling Legend Saraya Knight: "Her and I have tagged twice together at AAW based in Chicago. Love her! She reminds me of me and my Dad. No bullshit. She'll tell you how she feels and lays it all out there. Honesty in this business is rare to find. I love watching her matches. Just old school brawling."

Heather also talks on the product of women's wrestling today, on whether or not her father was supportive of her getting into pro wrestling, and more.
