Taryn Terrell Talks Differences In Being A Diva And A Knockout, BFG In Japan

Andrew Lee sent along the following …

The following are highlights of a new Sports Vibe UK interview with TNA Knockout Taryn Terrell:

On how she got started in the business: “In 2007, my friend who is a huge wrestling fan took me to a show. I was at a point in my life where I was done with university and at a dead end. I remember watching a match between Candice Michelle and Beth Phoenix. I figured that’s what I wanted to do. So I started researching and found out about the Diva Search. Although I didn’t win, I bothered the hell out of WWE for a job. Now it’s become my passion and my world.”

On who she looked up to early in her career: “At the time, Beth Phoenix was an incredible worker and there’s women like Trish Stratus who I aspired to be like. When I first started out, they were who I looked up to. There was also Natalya who is such an incredible wrestler and worked so hard with the girls. She taught me so much of what I know today. She’s somebody who I have so much respect for.”

On the differences between being a WWE Diva and a TNA Knockout: “I think at the end of the day, it’s a different company with a different schedule but we’re all after the same goal to become incredible female athletes and entertainers. Whether you’re here or there, we all want to get in the ring to do our best. There is a difference. It’s a total different company. There are girls who have obviously come over. I worked with Gail Kim in WWE and now we’re both in TNA.”

On TNA Bound For Glory in Japan: “Being able to take something like Bound For Glory to Japan is such a cool opportunity. Sometimes, we forget there aren’t just people in the United States watching us but also in Japan. We’re connecting with all those people, so to go over there to meet them and perform in person is a wonderful opportunity for them and for us.”
