"I went to NWA Hollywood in November, and I went there because I needed a B-2 shot of wrestling. I had such a struggling relationship with wrestling. I wanted to love it again, after I did that Smashing Pumpkins video, I wanted to love it again. And so Brian (her photographer) and I go to NWA Hollywood and I fell in love with wrestling again. And then a couple months ago, WWE was in (Los Angeles) and we went to the show, and was all excited and I was like "Yeah! I love wrestling!" because of NWA Hollywood," Martinez says. "And I look down at the ring and I said, "That used to be my job, that used to be my office. I said, "Oh my gosh Brian, I don't think I'm done."
Shelly recalls anticipating some high-flying action at the WWE show and is reminded that her former employer doesn't showcase that style of wrestling.
She continues, "I had re-fallen in love you see with wrestling through NWA Hollywood. So it's almost like when you have a relationship and you had your first love, it's almost like you forget about how that even was because you already re-found love and it's a better love."
Shelly has also posted videos promoting her match this Saturday against Amber O'Neal for Fire Star Pro Wrestling at The Fair Grounds in Eden, North Carolina.
